BOO'S NEW WHEELS

Can you believe that Boo has over 52k miles on her!!! I had driven the tread right off of the tires.

I started pricing truck tires! Wow! They start at $750 and go way up. I went to one used tire place and the guy told me that I will never find them.

As I was walking out a young man in a nice black coat approached me and told me he had a dealership in town and all of his used cars get tires from another used tire shop in town.

So I drove another mile down the road and found Castillo's Tires and they were so nice. I got 4 almost brand new tires mounted and balanced for $50/tire!!

One more night of cold weather and it will warm up for a while. I bought TX 10/15 sweet onions sets today at Calloways Nursery. And oh my goodness their trees are huge and beautiful and were only $24.99. But none of them (apple or pear) were of the crisp variety. So I abstained. But I might go back for a fig tree. Those were beautiful also. Very heavy branches.

They told me that I should go to the TX A&M website and see what fruit and nut trees will do well here as it is warmer and wetter and there are more diseases due to that.

What a sweet blog. Found you while browsing around. I read all the blogs that run on the page. You live a really interesting life. You are right, God is good and patient with us. So often we goof up what his ultimate plan and purpose for our lives. I hope you will stop by as I count my blessings too. Continued Blessings to you!

I'm rooting fig scions now, they finally began to take. It's just been so cold, even in the house.

Enter a bright idea - use the dehydrator! ---- carefully.

Maybe when the weather warms up, I can send you some fig cuttings if you like?

Great shopping on the tires! Sounds like the first place was not very helpful in helping you find a good deal. Castillo's just found return business and word of mouth spread, I'm betting. :o)
