Weed Spraying (ugh) ~ Tomb of Unknown Soldier ~ (((HUG))) Day


 
Good 41º clear and sunny morning.

 
Yesterday I filled the 25 gallon weed sprayer and did the road from here to the pond and back. Then the road to the barn. Then filled it again and used the nozzle to spray around the carport, the tractor shed, and all the berry bushes I could find. Then around the outside of the barn. When I took the picture of the vulture way up in the pasture I noticed a bush growing there.



So..... off I went up in the pasture. It was a berry bush and I found a few more along the fence line. Worn out after that. It is a bouncy bumpy ride on the lawn-tractor on that uneven ground. Got some sunburn.... wearing my Birkenstock so strips on the feet and a great 'farmer tan'. Came in and showered and cooled off. Got to about 74º, but so clear and pretty.... and the poppies are blooming everywhere!

and.... a couple more puns from Ike:

This girl said she recognized me from the vegetarian club, but I'd never met herbivore.


I'm reading a book about anti-gravity. I just can't put it down.

First off I am sending you a great BIG HUG!!!!!!
Be still my heart, I love Joe Montana, but you already know that. I can stare at him all day. LOL Adrienne Barbeau is a beauty. Loved her on Maude.
The story about the prisoners escaping from Alcatraz is an interesting read. We did a tour through the prison several years ago and I was just fascinated with it. Actually would like to tour it again. Let's go to San Francisco! Let's look up Joey too! I know, I know, he is not there.
Off to start my day. More wood splitting. Don't work too hard mowing. Thanks for the blog. xo
Now go hug Maggie and Harley!
chat later.
