ON THE BACK BURNER

Aug. 18

I am discovering that once you plant a garden, even after laying a lot of mulch over cardboard, weeds can make it through .Weeds are tough .Every day, I pull these little weeds that pop through everything that is on top of them. I don’t mind the weeding. Getting down is easy. Getting up .. very ungraceful, even undignified. I can do squats without a problem, but getting up from the ground, is a one , two, three movement. At least I can get up. The weather here is nuts. A few miles away,they are experiencing high temperatures.Here  we are in what is called a rain shadow. We get less rain and I think in winter, they are warmer. Port Townsend gets 156 days of sun, 2 inches of snow and I think no ice.Today was an example of what to experience when it comes to the weather. Two days ago, it was too hot, even for me. I had to put Dixie in the shower to cool her down. Today, back to hat, undershirt, long sleeve shirt, flannel shirt and hat. I looked up some information about Port townsend. It has 89% Caucasians,3% African Americans, 0.3 % American Indians.18 police persons and the community is considered conservative. I do see mostly Warren,Sanders and Biden bumper stickers.The population is 9,704. With so many Uchitelle’s living here right now, that number may be increased.

Everything sounds so wonderful Leona. Venice will seem boring . I would want to move to Portownsend where the kids are living. All sounds great . Is there?
