It is in the 50s, and the snow is almost gone. Today’s tour of the neighborhood will be a mixture of some sad things and some to make you smile. We will take the bus even though it is a short ride.
Of course, we need to take food, but since most food stores have minimal supply, we will be forced to make do with what we could find. For an appetizer, we have some Cheetos that are only a day past expiration. The main course will be a choice of hot dogs and beans served on whole-wheat toast with canned green beans or scrambled powdered eggs and spam served with canned peas. For dessert, we have a choice of an orange popsicle or Hostess Ho ho’s. We still have plenty of top-shelf liquor, and our wine today is Carlo Rossi red or Franzia chablis.
Today’s entertainment is Buck Owens.
Jump on the bus, and off we go.
The first stop is not too far from home. The mountain laurel in our backyard took a hit.
The ice was in the trees yesterday morning with a wake-up temperature of 21 degrees F. ( -6.1 C)
Ice on the bushes. Then the temps went to 57 degrees F (13.8C)
Looks like someone had a hard time stopping before hitting the stop sign. The road was covered in ice.
A bunch of broken juniper limbs.
A snowman still left.
In honor of Fat Tuesday and Mardi Gras.
Here’s the mountain laurel all trimmed. The Producer put a tag on its toe, but I got a stay of execution until after the sprig bloom to see what it does.
Palm trees took a big hit.
The deer love the sunshine.
An oak with broken limbs and glare in the photo.
A succulent broken into two pieces. It looks like the weather is going to get better from here and out further.
The tour is finished. Stay and have some more food and drink. Listen to Buck. Enjoy all you Buckaroos. Have a great week.
