Post Thanksgiving

Saturday, November 26, 2005

I managed to avoid stores on Black Friday but instead got slammed with a nasty headcold. There went most of my weekend 'to do' list. However, on Friday my wonderful neighbor chopped up and removed my fence that got destroyed in Hurricane Wilma. After we had dragged the debris to the curb, I was wondering how long it would be before the next sweep would be made by the hurricane clean-up crews. Lo and behold, ten minutes later the forklift came through and picked up the fence remains.

I'm giving up on the fence though. We're supposed to be in this active hurricane cycle for 10-20 years, so I'm planting ficus shrubs for privacy. Maddie doesn't wander far from the house, only going into the yard when I'm outside so I don't need the enclosure for her.

Three knockdowns in thirteen months is quite enough. No more digging post holes for me.
