Another Sierra Sunrise

I don't think words are needed here. But, as always, there are a few things worth noting. One, I drove to my house in Los Angeles on Sunday and will post about it soon.

Also, while Faith may be on the table, Samson is in charge. The other day, he finally got tired of her bullying. They were both trying to kill a lizard when Faith had a fit of rage and started to fight him. Samson finally got mad and somehow ended up standing over her, with his teeth in the back of her neck, growling fiercely. I had to break up the fight. No harm done, and best friends again a minute later. 

As you can see in the last picture, the weeds are growing tall again. Nowhere near as tall as last year though and the tractor-mower guy is coming on May 22nd. By then the weeds should be dry enough to be cut and stay cut. We now have a June 1 fire abatement deadline, with no second chances, and a $500.00 fine if not in compliance immediately after.

My Sunday quote by Pope Francis, "No tyranny can be sustained without exploiting our fears" was to honor the Pope for his courage as he visited Egypt, and thus showed the world that his were no empty words. It was also in reference to the speech our president gave in Harrisburg on Saturday, ensuring his base stay scared of Muslims, immigrants, and people of color in general. 

Finally, Another Tequila Sunrise is a favorite song of mine. I think of it often as the sun rises over the Sierra Nevada mountains behind my backyard. Hence the title of this post. And no more tequila for me, too old for that, but just thinking of it brings back beautiful memories of our time in Mexico. 

Lots of words for a no words needed post, oh well!
