I am headed to Ohio in just a few days, for, as normal, working in my woods, visiting my 101 year-old mom, go to grandchildren however largely working within the woods.  I really like working and strolling across the primarily oak timber.  I took a subject, planted 2 year-old seedlings, watered them throughout a uncommon Ohio drought, sprinkled them with urea nitrogen to spur a second spurt of progress within the springs and now, an actual forest exists.  Anyway, Amy's sister purchased a house and requested me to wash up the back and front yards.

Above is the after image.  I loved working a few of the identical muscle tissues I will be utilizing in Ohio so it was an excellent prep for my go to.  Along with cleansing up the timber, which had change into bushes, I eliminated all of the prickly pear cactus and cholla cactus.  Yikes, so many cactus spines I needed to pull from my palms and arms.

Nonetheless biking fairly a bit, getting in 100 miles per week.  I discovered Sundown Highway in Marana to have a number of steep climbs.  However HEY!  Do not fret as I will probably be mountain climbing once more quickly and posting extra superior photos.  On Sunday….

…Amy and I, with mountain climbing buddy Katheryn and her husband Jim, drove into the sticks, discovered an excellent hill as a background and practiced capturing.  All authorized within the nice state of AZ.  Above, they posed, duplicating some film scene.  To be honest, if I needed to fee accuracy, Jim was one of the best, adopted by Amy with Katheryn and I tied for final.  Amy advised we choose some grapefruits from her tree and convey them alongside for goal follow.  If I had a shotgun I perhaps would have hit the fruit however with a hand gun, nope.

On the return to Tucson/Oro Valley we stopped at Charron Winery the place we had a glass of wine and loved the views.  Nice day.
