A Much Needed Tool In South Texas
It doesn't hurt to have several of these in handy places and that be tweezers. Not many days go by when I don't have to pick some kind of sticker out of John's leg, foot, hand. Of course I have to pick my own out since John has a sight excuse. Have you ever tried to hold a pair (why are they called pair when they are just one?) in your left hand and try to pick a sticker out of your right hand when you are right handed? Actually my reason for writing this is to tell you grass burrs have learned to preserve them selves. They have learned to grow and spread instead of getting tall when they produce their mean hurting little burrs. I noticed my neighbor who mows and trims my yard (for a fee, of course) doesn't seem to have as many grass burrs as I do. I have hoed, I put out Weed and Feed twice a year, I have pulled by the roots. Then I thought he mows his yard more often so the burrs doesn't have a chance to make so many mean little devils. I gave him free rein to do my yard anytime he does his, thinking I'll beat em' yet. Now they have gotten smart and grow so close to the grown and spread out so the lawn mower goes right over them without harming them. Guess I'll just buy another pair of tweezers and make sure I wear my house shoes on the carpet and I know better then to go outside barefoot.
