Re: Re: bermudagrass wars


Powerhouse you say Kitty? You're cracking me up. Pam the stubborn butt
who doesn't like noisy machines is more like it. And yes Donna, my back
and shoulder and 100 degree heat are making me quit the heavy work for
the day. Watering now and harvesting lemon verbena for toner. Got most
of the big bed done. Will have to finish it in the am before moving on
to the smaller one. At least I won't have to do as much lugging tomorrow
- already piled up the bags next to the other bed. I must be out of my
mind doing this. Jesse, you have my permission to slap the dogsnot out
of me if I ever get this behind again. Off to make more tea y'all...
