I learned a few things today...

1.  There is a place "where a kid can be a kid," but it will cost you.

2.  Cutting/trimming a weeping willow tree is like cutting your bangs while they're wet.  You aim for the "perfect" place on the hangie-downie branch and trim away.  Once you've done that, and lightened the weight of the limb, the branches all go upwards -- making the hangie downies much shorter than anticipated!  (Y'all are having bad bang-cutting episodes flash through your minds now, aren't you?  You're welcome.)

3.  Cutting an old, gnarly, forgotten about Rosemary bush/shrub/monster is tough work.  Fragrant, yes.  But tough.  (Anyone want some Rosemary before the yard garbage truck comes?)

4.  God's timing is perfect.  And nothing I can say or do will change that.  Hallelujah for that!

(Photo by one of my in-laws, Duke or Karen Grey.)

5.  I also learned that on the day with the most perfect opportunities for photos, that it stinks to be without my camera.  So, I confess.  None of the photos above are mine.  The camera's in the shop.  But, I did a bang up job borrowing these images from Google.  Except for the last one.  That one I borrowed and gave credit where credit was due.

6.  After 3+ hours of yard work, one should not attempt to write a coherent blog post.  Or expect to be able to spell.  Or see the screen clearly.  Or...

So, with that, I'm over and out.
