    Still drizzling here also.

    Don't know how big the fruit will get on the dwarf pomegranate, we'll see. They say it's edible. May not be fore than a bite! Lol. I see big ole pom trees all over, at older homesteads, but the nursaries, say they won't grow around her.. SMH! I need to see if I can dig one up, but I never see one small enough to dig up.

    Never have seen gourds like those before.

    Thanks qtrbell! Cyn, I hightailed to the store yesterday afternoon (before I got kicked lol) and got stuff to make chili! It is gooood!

    When our finances level out, I am going to put the girls in riding lessons. I found someone here locally who gives English, which is what I want them to learn, so I left her a vmail to find out the cost and all. I may even take some just to learn that style riding. I have always ridden Western. I want the girls to learn English because I feel it will teach them more to learn balance and proper seat than to rely on the saddle so much.

    It drizzled all morning here til about 1 pm. Then a break, no sun - just over cast. I was standing at the door looking out into the yard wondering where my chickens were (it's hard to see them in the tall grass in the garden) and then 'BOOM' goes the thunder and suddenly birds come out of every nook and cranny and run back to the coop. Bring on more rain!

    I found the best of all worlds as far as footwear goes that fits my lifestyle - tough work boots that look like english paddock boots that under western jeans look like ropers, and are tough enough and comfy enough for all day treks on the goldwing and look cute, too! Now that is some multi-purpose footwear if I've ever seen any...they will be here on Thursday.

    Mine are cursing the skies as we speak. All it's doing is rumbling though. We need a break. We lost a large portion of our drive and the culvert came part ways out of the ground. Enough of a wash to move large chunks of concrete used as fill. EMS getting the trees established is what takes luck and preplanning. Establishment takes time and care as well as attention to detail. In Tx most are lost in the summer due to drought not winter. People plant early spring lose interest or assume they are established by summer and quit watering. You could get cuttings off of some of the trees and work with that. Most there are very willing to share cuttings. I've knocked on many a door shears in hand. Made some great friends that way.

    Darn dog peed on my nice wool rug rather than going outside in the rain. Grrr.

    Like the boots, CC! Looking forward to your review in a few Weeks; I am currently wearing the size-too-small ropers I had in storage the 11 years I was out of the horse biz.
