I have a friend that lives near you. You forgot to say illegal pot growers. They are brazen enough to actually run piping strung across her land to divert water from the creek.
Ahhh, I was going to ask why it was "stealing" or why they had to steal in the first place.
There was a little girl,
            Who had a little curl,
Right in the middle of her forehead.
            When she was good,
            She was very good indeed,
But when she was bad she was horrid.

I did forget. You are correct. I think it is dangerous to deal with them. Hopefully she can report it.
When in trouble when in doubt, run in circles scream and shout.

The water here is somewhat spoken for. The growers have been multiplying beyond what the water can support. They still take it. Ranchers near here are being taken to court for selling it to them. Residents are having their wells go dry. Apparently 30 homes no longer have water.

As a monitor, I am supposed to come up with a solution to the forthcoming water shortage crises.  I did come up with a plan but I doubt that there is enough funding available to put it into effect.

I thought you people dealt in magick and spells and crystals, not funding.

Yes, we deal in magic and such but we also supply ideas.  The funding would have to come from good ol' Buddy Joe.

My Howard McMinn manzanita is in full bloom.

I planted the shrub eight years ago and it was advertised as growing as high as ten feet but mine is only a couple feet high.  I finally checked around underneath it and discovered that the trunk had grown all circular, like a rolled up garden hose.

I don't know, they have appeared all over up here.
Is there such an app?

Annie, there is a good app for identifying flowers in the Google Play Store if you happen to have a tablet.  It is called What's That Flower?
and it is free.  I use it on occasion to find the names of certain flowers.

Thank you! Installed, and will see about it tomorrow.

Interesting! I wonder what happened?

Howard McMinn is growing up to be a fine young man.
I know all about cheap rolled up garden hoses.  :'(

Finally visited the Fort Parker restoration site near the Navasota river.

Lots of history in this area which includes the abduction of Cynthia Ann Parker as a child. Eventually one of her sons, Quanah Parker, went on to form the Native American Church.

This is the freshwater spring that supplied their water.
