Hey people, the heatwave continues here.  I think today is going to be the hottest and steamiest in 10 days.  I think we are supposed to get 2 days with a high of 80-82 degrees and then the heat is gonna come raging back.

Re: JULY 2020 Back Fence Gathering

Freddie, I'm glad that your electricity came back on.  In this weather, not having power could kill you.  So much of the country is having a heat wave and I think our old power grids are fragile.

 

I'm glad that Shannon came by to help you with the grass.  

 

I have a big fruitless mulberry in the back of my yard.  The tree guy that I used to use called it a weed.  Well, that's his opinion.  It gives great shade and the animals love it.  You are right about the cost to remove the tree - they will ask for an arm and a leg to get it out.

 

When I went grocery shopping last week Friday the local Meijer had signs at the U-scan that you needed to use a check or debit/credit card.  No cash at the U-scans because their is a national coin shortage.  I never thought I'd live long enough to see a coin shortage.

 

Basically, the world is crazy as he** right now. 

 

Epi, I've often wondered if they could remove your tailbone surgically.  Now you've answered that question.  Being connected to the spine more or less I can see why getting rid of it may not solve the problem.

 

Viva923, Geez I hope that you will be okay with Fay moving up the coast.

Re: JULY 2020 Back Fence Gathering

Bernie I really love those fruitless mulberry trees. Greatest shade tree - well almost - there is. My Dad said that many years ago people did not want a fruitless mulberry - I love them

 

Horribly hot ans sticky here today and the same the next two days. Am NOT looking forward to that. What a job in this weather

 

Stay cool everyone - I am ready for bed - hope I can sleep without sweating - past few nights I have awakened around midnight soaking wet. Have a hunch it will be the same tonight.
