Texas “Snow Shoveling”

texas 'snow shovel' pile
Back before I turned Texan, up in the northeast, good neighbors helped each other out shoveling snow off the sidewalks, in which case this pile at the end of our sidewalk would be white and cold.

A few days ago, Ross was outside clipping and offered Susan he’d clip some for us off our front trees while he was at it. I’m not the one who would have thought to do so: I probably would have let the things grow wild until they gave us the illusion of a forest in our front yard. Now they look as civilized as I do after an excursion to see Gloria.

well-needed trim

Thank you, Ross. Look for me out front next time it snows here, if not before.
