I went to spend a few days with my mom a couple of weeks ago.
She lives down in South Texas.
The drought is so extreme in her area that she has prickly pear and dirt....that's about it.
Oh, and mesquite trees.
She warned me before I went that she had, "Taken to cussing."
She said it makes her feel better. Of course, she does apologize to the dog.
I was so glad to get back here to the land of pretty and green.
That was then.
Well, mom...we have officially had 16 days over 100 degrees.
I'm breaking all the rules watering just trying to keep things alive.
It's 106 right now...
Mom, I've taken to cussing!
