December 21, 2011We've got a kid who is getting married in March. This person of interest plans on using the back yard for the ceremony so Kathy got the landscapers out this morning giving them all orders to trim and clean. One of the things that is going to get pruned and cut down to size is a cactus that has totally gotten out of hand.
We planted it in 1986, or so. Here I am with my daughter Deena, with our dog Dusty standing next to it (actually, that's it behind us, at right):
I think you'll agree, that is one monster cactus that got totally out of hand. A living metaphor, perhaps, for my interest in all things Western.
