More Progress and Less Nature
Two days ago they arrived down and across the street with Bull dozers and went to work. We knew it was coming but didn't know when. we still don't know what is coming but what ever it is, it's going to be large. I'm thinking housing development. So far they have left two big beautiful oak trees but cleared out the small mesquites. We liked our neighborhood because we were close to the highway with all the businesses we need and had some neighbors. We still had the country too, lots of brush and trees and home for wild animals. When it rains we have a pond and a creek bed. One day I saw a fawn walk from the grown up area and go to the Senior citizens apartment yard. One day a deer ran along side my truck for a ways. John used to see a fox in a neighbor's yard when he walked early in the morning. We used to hear coyotes at night. It even feels hotter in our neighborhood with all the brush and trees cut down to the west of us. I'm sad, I want my wildlife home back.
