My neighbor, Beverly Whitlow, had her entire family out in the yard for days, weed wacking her entire property. I would see all of them out in the yard whacking away at the stinknet and bottlebrush, almost every day, on my morning walks.
Now, this was BEFORE the Ocotillo Fire hit on May 30. The conflagration burned everything right up to her property line.
The moral is: Hey fire, don't you mess with the Queen of the Weed Wackers!
Speaking of Queens and the Queen Mary, here's a throwback to a more land yacht time.
Back to the conflagration.
We're hard at work on the Ocotillo Fire doc. That would be me and this guy.
