The smoke is from a pecan wood fire. Yesterday morning I drove my rusty 950 John Deere tractor down to the creek and pulled back three dead pecan tree branches. I wanted them near the house so I could use an electric chain saw to cut them to size. I use an electric saw because I have yet to be initiated into the secret society of gasoline chain saw users. Starting and keeping a gas saw running mystifies me. I just can't do it. I like to use dry wood soaked in water rather than green wood.
Next door, Bede took out another flower pot. I suspect Kathy's sister is now questioning the appropriateness of her gift; an electic Gator for a three year old.
