Cameron’s Post 10/23/14

We have been so lucky lately! The weather has been amazing, the fall color has been beautiful and the Royals are in the World Series!  It’s been a great fall…and it’s still going!
How’s your project list going?  Mine’s still there, staring me in the face.
I did finally get a few trees and some new foundation landscaping planted… and man, did that feel good! It didn’t really take all that long to do, but you know how it is, it just seems like there’s always something else that needs to be done.  
One of the trees I planted went into the front yard. Now understand, we have a pretty big front yard, and the tree is pretty close to the house so there’s still a lot of open front yard, but that didn’t stop me from getting the second degree from my son even as I was digging the hole. “Dad, you’re messing up my front yard…how am I going to play catch?!!” Well there’s still plenty of room to play catch in dad’s opinion, but I don’t think he’s convinced. There have been casual threats of secretly poisoning the new tree. I still like it where it’s planted so we’ll see who wins. At the very least, I’d probably better rethink my plans for the next few trees I was going to plant out there until after the “ball field” can be retired!
I still have plenty to do besides planting trees, so I guess I’ll just focus on those projects for now. I hope you’re enjoying your fall and getting some things on your list accomplished. If you haven’t yet, get out there and get busy, it won’t stay like this forever. And one more thing….
