A rose is a rose

There are still roses blooming in town. This is from my walk on Sunday. I like the way this one turned out. Brian posted similar picture a week or so ago.

I have two large pecan trees in my yard and this is the pecan year. I don't get upset often (lie), but one thing I hate is to see people in my yard picking up the pecans. Its not that I don't want them to have the pecans, heck they are a pain in the butt when mowing. But, I don't want strangers in my yard. If people will not have the courtesy to ask to be in my yard, then I will not have the courtesy when running them out of my yard, I do it every year. Do I need to translate? Stay out of my yard!

OK sorry bout that. Sometimes I have to be the old crotchety guy.

A twitter equipped bathroom, NO, NO. But I do feel good about my working out. Yesterday was just over 6.5 miles walking and 60 minutes of P90X.

We are going to have to check out Forney Light Show when it lights up later this month.

Terrell Tiger defender AJ Wells was named defensive player of the week by the Dallas Morning News.

Very, very sweet rose. I like it when flowers linger on into winter.

We used to have English Walnut trees and a small Apple orchard and people can be so rude. Hey, we love to give them away, but like you said--ASK FIRST!!!

Pretty rose! That is so rude of people, ugh! My grandparents had orange trees and people would walk by and just stop and pick some. We would be sitting in the kitchen and watching through the window...why do people feel so entitled? Of course my grandpa always ran them off,lol

Stick to your guns, Jim, about the sanctity of your yard. In my opinion there are way too many people around now with little or no raisin'--know what I mean?

6.5 miles--wow! I'm in awe. I don't know what the P90X is, but how did you find an hour for it, what with all of that walking?

Lovely photo today, too.
