Back home from 10 days in Italy, very pretty and not too many train
screw-ups, about half, a low %.  No rain here, whereas a few hundred miles
off there has apparently been deluge.  Lawn is turning brown - I never
water it, figure it's God's job and if it dies I can get rid of it (it
never has).  There is plenty of the steppe-lands dry gfrass-type weeds
coming up all over.  I think I am going to resort to weed killer because if
it doesn't rain, I'll never be able to pull them out of this clay.  The old
pear tree has sent up a half dozen suckers, a sure sign of very dry
weather.  Last rain was about 3 weeks ago, for us in this wet Great Lakes
region very dry indeed.  yeah George it's a big pain watching people wash
their cars.

I'm moving pretty slowly this morning and haven't been out yet to see
what's really what in the garden - overgrown and overrun by grass I can see
from the window.
