Re: gardenchat DIGEST V1

Being with my family (mom and DH) was a treat......and so was her home  
cooking.....but we actually went because her fence was in much needed  repair.  She 
had paid a down payment with a contractor to do the work, but  he never 
showed up.  In the mean time a "ferocious pitbull" (which ended up  being a 
neighbors hunting dog) came into the yard through the bad fence and  "snarled and 
showed his teeth" at her through the back door, forcing her and her  little 
silver poodle to stay inside.  So....needless to say, we ended up  having to go 
and...what initially was to "repair" the fence......put up a brand  new fence.  
Mom's have a way of making us do things.  LOL   Anyway, we feel better now that 
she feels safer.  Now of course she doesn't  like that the rest of the fence 
doesn't "match" the new one......so.....as soon  as it cools off some and the 
plants die back some, we'll be going back to finish  the job.  Only bad thing 
about it was that she planted huge Opuntia  (prickly pear) cacti all along the 
fence for "security".   Dh hasn't  stopped grumbling about the cacti quills 
in his hiney from bending over to put a  nail in and being impailed.  Anyway, 
we enjoyed the visit.   LOL
