What can we say?  When the trees here start to "fire off," we all just stand around total "shock and awe" just like we do the night of July 4th when the fireworks kick off over The Snake River at John's Hole.  There's no way a photo can do this tree justice.  To see it person is almost a transcendental experience.  It glows and pulsates in a way that we humans dearly loves.  "SWEET!"  (As Napoleon Dynamite would say.)

We talk a lot about what we do each day these days.  We fiddle with this and that and it just goes on and on and on like the Energizer Bunny, only slower.  Being Official Neo-Tropical Migratory Human People, we have a lot of stuff to do to get ready to go from hither to yonni. Each of our days is mostly consumed with minute details such a shift in geo-locations entails.  At left is my "TODOS" list for tomorrow.  I'll be lucky to get half of it done but at least that many items will be off :the list.  By the way--we pronounce "TODOS" as this: "TOE-DOZE."  Some people would pronounce it as in a "To Do List" only plural. Nah, Toe- Doze works better for us and is vaguely Spanglish in a good way.  Susun thinks it's way too esoteric.  It works for me.

Because we have been fertilizing our yard way too much this year, it is still growing like it thinks it is on steroids.  YIKES!  It's grown as at least two inches since we last mowed it.  It's a beast that won't stop growing.

We played another round of Junior Golf today.  Houn' Dawg simply couldn't resist being called out on a $5 bet.  Last year he smoked our fanny when we bet him five bucks we could beat him.  He put on a show last year. This year?  Not so much.  I carded 27 and he had to live with a final score of 31, four strokes down.  He pulled out a five dollar bill and handed it to me.  I could tell it pained him greatly.  I did have to acknowledge I took advantage of him and he agreed I did.  I tried to apologize but he told me, "You're not sorry one bit, you loved kicking my arse."

Well, yeah, he got that right.

It's the nice thing to do to say you are sorry--even if you aren't.
Sorry, Houn' Dawg, I loved every minute!

Have a great evening & Many Cheers, jp
