A slow starting day was enjoyed this morning. Some visiting on the porch with the owner yielded solutions to many of the world problems. Then a trip was made in the Truck to just move around some. Diesel was cheaper at a Valero station than Wal-Mart by six cents a gallon. The trip ended up over on the Lamar Peninsula and eventually down to the Big Tree state park.
My first visit here was around forty years ago before an idiot poured herbicide on the tree in an attempt to kill it. The tree lost some major limbs but was saved by quick action on the part of the caretakers.
It is minimally fenced now, but when my son was young and before the fence, we had a picture of him sitting on one of the low hanging limbs. That was one of the limbs destroyed by the idiot. The tree has a lot of history around it of the early Texas nation and then state.
The trunk shows the wear and tear of the years this tree has been serving for a land mark for travelers. It is known that Native Americans used the area for their living and the big tree was a special landmark for them.
Near by on the under brush the honey bees were diligently gathering the pollen for honey making. Here is one of the devils hard at work.
The whole area has flowers giving great views. The day was very overcast in this area so the sparkle is not really fantastic like it can be when the sun hits the flowers. These were right across the street from the Big Tree.
As if that was not enough activity, the golf course called me to come over and mutilate it. Of course it was mutilated to perfection on only the back nine holes. By the time my body finished walking the back nine, it was pooped. My pull cart was used to carry the bag and clubs. My time of carrying my clubs seems to be over for this lifetime. It was bad enough just pulling the cart. My score cannot be told since it exceeded the number of my fingers and toes on the first hole. But it was a great way to end the day of trying to have tooooo much fun. TheOFM.
EDIT after the comments: Part of yesterdays post got waylaid and lost in transit to the blog. The rv park manager position is only for while the owner goes on vacation, not permanent.
