Last weekend was the big start of Spring around here as far as yard and garden work. Wilma tended the garden. I hit the yard and took her car in for new tires, while taking some fun time, too. One morning was clear and warm enough I could eat breakfast out on the front porch and watch the country wake up. Always like that. Each year I pull some pasture cedar seedlings. This time of year the ground is moist and loose and the grass isn't green and thick enough to hide them, so I can pull the out, either by fingers or with pliers. Usually I bag them up, but this year I just threw them in the wheelbarrow for the burn pile and counted them . . . thus the title of this sketch. Got more than I figured. I found the youngin's to be very graceful and attractive, even if I hate them. The donut shop just opened up this year. It's open 24-hours a day with drive-up service and can seat probably 100 people. What a business model! Hope they make it. Need to rest up for next weekend.
