Rather than duplicate my Xanga post, here are some snippets from my life these days.
I had the tree guy trim up anything dangerous in the vicinity of the house. He comes every couple of weeks and does a little work. That way I can afford it.
The philodendrons are in an orgy of reproduction. It’s just plain embarrassing to lift their leaves and see this.
I leveled them one Saturday when the tree guys were here. It didn’t take nearly as long as I thought it would. Here’s an after picture. Still need to get rid of the palms. Someday when I feel ambitious I’ll take care of that battered siding.)
It made a surprisingly compact pile of brush by the curb.
Friday evenings my sister-in-law Angela has a gig at the Colombian restaurant a few blocks from here. Sometimes her husband Diego plays with her. Alicia often sings harmony or plays percussion.
For the last couple of weeks, Alicia has been in Colombia, and Diego has had his own gigs. Right now he’s out of town at a family wedding. I’ve sung a handful of songs the last few Fridays. It doesn’t give Angela a break because she still has to play, but it provides some variety.
Still struggling a little with getting WordPress to do what I want. These images were truncated in the theme I had, so I chose another one. This one at least has a font other than Arial.
