The joy of paying for services
Yesterday Tony G and his family removed a huge truckload of trimmings from our yard, the truck had 12 ft sides and 30 ft long. Three talm palms and a dwarf palm, two Texas sages, five pomegranite bushes, a grapefruit tree and our huge smooth skinned green palo verde with the yellow blooms. They picked up a hundred pounds of fallen flowers that had carpeted the back yard. Oh, how great to write a check...it would have taken me weeks of labor to do what they did in two hours.
As we knew, our back porch sitting area is getting alot of evening use and we love it. I can see Laura having morning coffee out there when school is out next week.
Some trip excitement is building for our week in New York City, although an urban vacation will not have the quiet we enjoy, this exploration of America's apple will be rewarding. The Statue of Liberty, Times Square, 9/11 memorial, Central Park...while staying in a Manhatten upscale hotel...woot!
