The Week

My dad's old friend from Lockheed dropped for a visit. He is 90 years old. He traveled the US is on his way to his home in Texas. Our families spent many holidays together back in the 60's & 70's. He lost his wife of 66 years. Since he is being the last of the bunch alive, he is now spending time visiting the kids of his co-workers.

He hasn't had a dog in years. He spent his time spoiling my dog with pets and belly rubs. One of his homes, he planted dichondra grass. He didn't mow it. The grass gets to a certain height and stops growing. Beautiful! Wonderful! Lord, I tried to get my dad convince it wasn't necessary to mow dichondra. My dad just pointed to the hand push mower and said, "Mow".

Yesterday, we spent part of the day at our council meeting at city hall. Our city is having some tax issues. It was good to know that our city council members are very conscientious about the taxpayer $$$'s. Of course, now they are. There are new faces to the city council. There were concern citizens showing up too. Highly recommend if you can, show up at these meetings.

Hopefully I can get back to blogging regularly again.
