Beer Cans And Pine Cones...!
That's just a little of the "compost" left on the garden spot behind my Mom's house.
Now, contrary to popular belief, neither one of these things will make a good compost...at least not in my lifetime. Just thought I would throw that out there in case you are considering such a thing.
Oh, and by the way...I was NOT the one to leave this odd mixture on the said garden spot!
While taking the beltway to the V.A. yesterday, I couldn't help but wonder about some things. Everywhere you look around the once empty fields along the beltway, someone is building more apartments! I'm talking about 3 and 4 story apartment buildings here!
My main question is WHY...?
Why would anyone in their right mind want to live here in Houston? Is it because of the really tight job market? Maybe the really diverse mix of populace? Is it to learn another language other than English? Is it to afford themselves the adrenaline rush that comes from driving on the freeways? Or perhaps just to be able to partake in the almost daily gunfights around different parts of town...who knows?
I, for one, if I had a choice, would move to another place! Far away from the petro-chemical plants, the ship channel, the 3RD largest port in the states, the close proximity to the hurricane alley located around the nearby Texas coast, and the many other fun things associated with this area!
But that's just me! And I know that I don't have the same likes and dislikes as everyone else!
So, for those thinking of moving here to this area...come on down! They are building an apartment or a new house just for you. The paper said that home loans are easy to get right now...so it must be true, RIGHT?
All I can say is...GOOD LUCK!
Now, my friends, let's get some coffee and sit outside for a bit. Oh, and just move that saddle out of the way! It's for the 'skeeters!
