More Argghhhh...And an Ahhh
I went out to the garden this morning and discovered that in the last few days, they had sprayed the soy bean field with weed killer. They over shot the spray. Casualties: 4 cantelope plants, 8 pumpkin plants, 6 of acorn squash, 6 of butternut squash. ALL DEAD. I am about as close to tears as one can get.
On a lighter note, my nephew has purchased his first home and has been working hard on getting it suitable for living. It was a "fixer upper" in the biggest way. He has had to gut and replace just about everything. He is in his early twenties, and has a couple of neighbors in their early thirties. He had asked them if they could give him a hand with his roof. He had stripped the old roof off, and had the shingles ready to go. He had a day off he had planned on doing the laying of the shingles. He arrived home from work one day to find all of these plastic shingle wrappers all over the yard. First thing he thought was...oh great, someone has stolen my roof. Then he looked up. One neighbor got up there and had the whole front half of the roof shingled, and had started on the back! You know....there is hope for the young ones coming up after all.
