Crabgrass and Harry Truman


Yes.  Crabgrass is in the mix of lawn weeds that I pull each evening.  Thank goodness for the radio.  Tonight I listened to Valley Public Radio’s Valley Writer’s ReadEach Wednesday evening a story authored and read by a Central San Joaquin writer is featured.  Tonight, Jim Ashford reads his piece about meeting Harry Truman when Ashford was a young man in the early 1960’s.  It was a nicely written/read story that helped me pass the time laboring on the lawn.

I’m starting to feel like Truman though with an urge to drop a bomb on my lawn and start all over again.

Ugh - our grass to weed ratio is pretty good, but I have to say that I resent that it rains here at least three afternoons a week and I still have to water daily. Puhleeez.

I don't click over to your garden often enough - I love the photo of your Pyr. They're my favorite breed. When we lived in the Hill Country, we'd always say that would be our next dog. Down here, I'm afraid a Pyr would be miserable. I know they can take a good bit of heat, but there isn't any evening relief, even as close as we are to the ocean. Sniff.


My Pyrenees came inside. Big, spoiled babies.
