Rain ~ Bark ~ Marteen ~ Pig Dog ~ Tammy ~ TBT

    
Good 56ยบ cloudy morning.

Yesterday we got just under 1/2" of rain. 20% chance for "light rain" today. Boy howdy, back East they are having tons of rain and flooding!

I got out early and put down the weed control mesh...
This is the "industrial strength" instead of the regular weed control mesh that only lasts about 2 years. A little more expensive, but worth it!
That was back killer!


Then the ground control guys came and sprayed the bark...


I like it! Bruiser thinks it is a giant litter box! Swell...


Marteen got here early and trimmed my pine trees, taking off the lower branches...

Before:

After:


Now I have another ginormous burn pile!


 OMG, you have to see this.... dog looks like he's part pig. CUTE! Thanks Cathy Norman (LASD ret) for this~!


Speaking of ret LASD, it's my friend Tammy Allgood's birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY TAMMY. Hope to see you soon. ( Like the luncheon next week!!) Hope you have a great day today! ox
