Gardening This Fall

These are pictures of the new plants I put in this weekend along with laying down some more grass seed.

       

These are pictures of my fall inner-city garden. I put it inside a dog kennel to keep the dogs out. In about 45 days I hope to have everything to make a mighty fine salad.

 

This is my entire back yard. There was nothing here when we moved in a little less than eight years ago. I feel pretty good about it. The backyard it getting close to what I was hoping for. I have three garden ponds. I did have five but my backyard was starting to look like a fish hatchery.

                   

Save Me San Francisco

Free found this video. It is a concert in Golden Gate Park in San Francisco. The sound could be better but I love the lyrics.

I used to love the tenderloin
until I made some tender coin
and then I met some ladies from Marin
We Took the Highway to the one,
up the coast to catch some sun
that left me with these blisters on my skin
don’t know what I was on,
but I think it grows in Oregon,
so I kept on goin going on right through
I drove into Seattle Rain
fell in love then missed the train
that could have took me right back home to you

CHORUS:
I’ve been high, I’ve been low, I’ve been yes and I’ve been oh hell no!
I’ve been rock ‘n roll and disco,
won’t you save me san francisco?

Every day so caffienated
I wish they were Golden Gated
Fillmore couldn’t feel more miles away
So wrap me up return to sender
lets forget this five year bender
Take me to my city by the bay!

I never knew all that i had,
now Alcatraz don’t sound so bad
at least they have a hella fine below (?)
If I could wish upon a star
I would hitch a cable car
to the place that I can always call my own!

I’ve been high I’ve been low,
I’ve been yes and I’ve been oh, hell no!
I been rock ‘n roll and disco,
won’t you save me San Francisco?
I’ve been up, I’ve been down,
I’ve been so damn lost since you’re not around,
I been reggae and calypso
won’t you save me San Francisco?

To tell you the truth
I miss everything, everything
It’s a wild, wild beautiful world
but there’s a wide eyed girl back there
and she means everything, everything,

I’ve been stop
I’ve been go
I’ve been yes and I’ve been oh, hell no!
I’ve been rock and roll and disco,
won’t you save me San Francisco?
I’ve been up,I’ve been down,
I’ve been so damn lost
since you’re not around,
I’ve been reggae and calypso,
won’t you save me San Francisco?

 

Those were the days my friend

we thought they’d never end, and they haven’t. Bob Dylan on Saturday night and U2 last night. Great concerts! Bob Dylan hasn’t changed his act much over the last few years but still changes how he will do one of his songs. I was moved the most by his version of All Along the Watchtower.  I do not have the words to discribe the U2 concert. It was the best concert I have ever been too. A day later I am still in awe. Simply overwhelming!

Pennsylvania Vacation

WE just returned from a week in Pennsylvania. We we were at there was no television, a fading in and out radio station, and limited cell phone service. When we got home I decided to start digging my winter garden. After about the 3rd shovel of dirt I cut right through the Cox cable and lost our TV service and phone service. I am wondering if it had anything to do with my complaining about having nothing in Pa.  Lots of beautiful fall pictures are coming soon. We left for the airport 5 hours early because they were expecting 12 inches of snow.
