The frequent rains and long, long spring have kept us from doing a bunch of the normal yard work. In short, the house looks bad. Since most of my customers are on summer shutdown, I decided to take some time from work this week. Yesterday I hacked up the out of control lilac bushes. They are trimmed and look fairly even, but no one will mistake me for Edward Scissorhands. I set up my little fountain. I weeded a couple of the flower beds.
Lowes has bags of mulch on sale this week, so I will spread some mulch this morning before it starts raining again. Sigh. I am not sighing at the work, but rather the threat of rain every day for the next week. The Glorious Fourth looks increasingly wet, as does the block party scheduled for the cul-de-sac on Saturday.
Now that my rage has settled, I guess we can admit Kaepernick's kneeling really was not about police brutality or starting a"conversation about race". He really was protesting America and the flag itself. The Castro shirt wasn't an accident nor ignorance. Those of you who supported his actions can kiss my rear too. BTW, those new Nikes I bought last week are heading back to tne store, no matter how comfortable they might be. I have not worn them yet and I'm not going to.
My coffee mug is down to the dregs. Have a great day.
