Our old Ford pickup gets about twelve miles per gallon, so it's a rare occasion when we use it. We decided not to buy expensive landscape rock to put around our trailer. We went across the river where they sell river sand and bought the simple rocks they sell, instead. They aren't as colorful, but hey... it'll do, at only $30 a ton.
Speaking of our pickup, the next license we buy for her will be the last. She'll officially be a classic, and as long as we don't drive her too many miles, we won't have to renew the license. (Who could afford to drive her far?)
Here's what we're doing with the rocks; before long there will be edging and shrubs.
The carpenter came today and drilled holes for our back porch and deck. Monday he'll start the actual construction.
Evidently our monsoon season is over; I'm now watering the Norway Spruce trees daily. The Lombardy Poplars are pretty much like weeds, so I don't worry about watering them.
Notice Sadie running around loose? She's getting better at staying with me, and coming when I call. Oh, she occasionally runs away and worries me, but those times are getting fewer and farther between.
