Teenagers Attacked My House !

Over Halloween, some very prudent friends of mine attended a conference at which they designed a survival plan for our circle should Dallas suffer a zombie attack, a gesture on their part which will not be forgotten next Single Person Appreciation Day.

However, there is no remedy for the attack of the teenagers on our home, as you see here. It's a good thing, though - they really, really kicked some serious yard boot-ay a Lutheran kind of way. My good friend Cassie is the youth minister at Bethel Lutheran in Garland, and some outstanding young citizens and a few very kind parents came and busted back the vines and hackberries that had been slowly taking over my garden plots this year - in fact, they even dug up my dandelions. Seriously.

These folks rock. I am going to send them a nice note, but I wanted to brag here. If we'd had to do this on our own, the give-it-an-hour-here-and-there approach we've half-attempted would've run us into next year. And you know how unforgiving a yard is - it doesn't just go on being neglected in a stable way. It gets nastier exponentially ...ugh.

Well, later this week I will update you on some lovely Thomas news, but I have to work tomorrow, so I'm off to bed. Oh yeah, Central Market has taken me on after all. Someone will finally appreciate my long-time Butt family fandom.
