Morning every one. Another weekend to relax and or catch up around the house. Like most of you, there is always something to do around the house. I have another home that I am being drown into. Our Church, most of the deities there are volunteer jobs. Because of this things don't get done until it doesn't work any more or is getting to be a eye sore.

Our ground keeping crew are getting old and tired from the never ending chore of keeping the grass cut, bushes trimmed and the place clean. One of the volunteers is 85 and still will ride a tractor all day cutting grass. Three others are in their early 70's! Where are all the young men? Most are strung out rising a family, and keeping their own home up!

Two of our best and leaders of the grounds keepers want out! They have worked for years at the church and now are wanting to just rest and take care of their home. These two have been the jack of all trades you name it and they have done it. Right now we see no one to replace them.
Two of my golf buddies are putting time in every week. Now they want me to join them. Not because I no any thing but I am a bodied, retired and no how to cut grass!

I went down yesterday and spent the morning picking up branches from Katrina. We have piles of wood along the road side to be picked up. Today we should finish up.
Driving around town, I saw trees down and branches stacked up every where. It's a shame that something can't be done with all this wood! It will take the city a long time to get all this cleaned up. I have no idea where they are taking it to. There will be a giant fire soon!

I hope all of you have a great weekend. Please take time to smell the ros├ęs!
