I'm making myself blog something even if there's really nuttin' going on.
Oh, some of the pecan trees here are dropping little pecans (immature ones). Hope we have some this year. I pick them up and sell them.( Every little bit helps.)

If anyone wonders what it is I do that is so active, I'm with a crew of ladies who clean rental houes on the beach. These are not cottages. These are gigantic places. (Google Halekai Gulf Coast Vacation Rental to see) I clean Hal 2, Hal 3, and V... Read more
