|Frabjous Day! Callooh! Callay!|
Spring time in South Texas can start as early as the beginning of February, but like in the rest of the country, this year the cold just kept coming. I don't mind mostly, since I'd rather work outside when it's cold, although I love the colors of spring.
Anyway, we've been busting our butts planting olive trees. We cleared half of the olive orchard of mesquite and huisache, burned the piles, dug holes for plants, planted them next to pipe supports, then ran the irrigation lines. I feel like we've been planting olives forever. We only have one more flat (18 plants) to plant tomorrow and then we're done!

She's learning not to go near the cats, though. Snickers has been around cats forever, and she knows what hissing means. But the other day Big Cat, also known as Al Capone or Tweedle Dum, showed her that cats can be manipulative and mean. The cat walked over to where Snickers could sniff him, waited a couple of seconds, then scratched her on the nose without warning. Snickers bled. Just another reason I like dogs better. Before, I kept Snickers on a leash whenever we were near the cats, but now I let her off and don't care if she terrorizes Big Cat. He deserves it.
