Pam, Some of us are just plain unable to do the manual labour required to keep our places clean and beautiful. It doesn't mean we've lost the appreciation of natures beauty. Far from it. We pay Weedman a fair amount of our dwindling pensions to maintain our property in an eye appealing state. For the few months of so-called summer we love the color green, as in lawn. Not to diminish by any means the magical beauty of a flower. But thanks to reckless developement by the O'Keefe's, Wiseman's, and French's, and the greedy administrations of St. John's, Paradise and CBS, there's hardly a drop of water to nurture our efforts. Bloomin' pity, pardon the pun.
