Dumpster Diving Again!

In our quest to transition our front lawn to a dry garden, we have started doing cuttings of succulents and cactus from our rear garden we planted 2 years ago.

Somehow customers take stupidity from servers as long as they’re treated nicely and the server apologizes for their fumblings. I was good at that.

So we have patience when we dine out. … to a point.

They are prescription, I wear them a lot and I decide it was time to get a new pair so I visited Happy Eyes in Glendale to peruse the pickens.
