For those of you not familiar with the phrase “just piddling”, it means rambling from one project to another, one thing to the next, with little or no defining finish line for any of it.
Shortly after returning from the GE&H rally, we had a family fishing trip to Guntersville, AL. It was a family affair with my brother, both SIL’s, and one daughter. The only problem was that the Crappie didn’t get the word we were coming. We departed there for home a day early to avoid a bad weather system moving in.
This past week found me putting the finishing touch on the fence in Natchez, and helping my brother build a closet in his daughters home. Cutting grass and planting azaleas has completed the week. Sounds exciting, right?
I did stumble upon one bright spot last week. There’s a plant here in the Southeast that was a staple at everyone’s home back in the early days. It didn’t matter if you were rich or poor; seems your yard would have at least one. If you were to walk around the Homochitto National Forest on a Spring day, you be surprised at the number of old homesteds which are defined by the presence of this plant. Without it blooming from the tops of the pine trees, you would have no idea that someone once had a home nearby. The Forest Service actually considers it an invasive species, and has attempted to erradicate it with little success. Do you have a guess?
How about Wisteria?
I spotted this overgrown shed last week. It is located in the yard of an old friend that passed away a few years ago. This shed was once his shop. Thought it was worth a quick picture.
As I mentioned earlier, not much to blog about. No large catch’s or exciting travels. Hope that begins to change within the next month, or so……jc
