Sunday, November 18, (continued) at home in Arizona
Dennis arrives and gets right to work!
He was delayed for an important reason. His wife needed him to take the children somewhere and, with Dennis, family comes first. That’s the way it should be, and he knows I want him to keep those priorities.
The neighbor’s mesquite tree has several branches that reach over our property. Dennis uses his electric saw to trim them back.
He rakes the fence line free of weeds until he reaches the big tangle in the photo below. The rabbit brush has grown so big that Dennis picks up his electric saw again to cut it down.
“I’m glad to see this mess taken out. Roger likes to stick his nose in it and Lord knows what lives in there.”
As Dennis clears away the brush, these softball-size gourds or squash or whatever are revealed.
I remember seeing globes like these when we boondocked at Buenos Aires National Wildlife Refuge in southern Arizona. I camped there in 2016 with Bridget and Reggie, and again last winter with Reggie and Roger.
Seems like ages ago . . . .
Dennis works until almost dark.
When he’s finished, the fence line is clear and two huge piles of brush and mesquite branches remain.
“I’ll come by with my pick-up and take all this to the transfer station,” Dennis says and then adds, “Unless you want the mesquite for burning.”
“No, I don’t want it. You can have it though.”
“Oh, I have enough . . . .”
There’s no shortage of mesquite in southern Arizona!
Dennis plans to return next weekend.
He will pull out the old fence. After that is completed, he will begin the installation of a privacy fence.
I can hardly wait to see how the fence will change the back yard!
INTERESTED IN A SAW LIKE THE ONE DENNIS HAS?
Dennis says that Dewalt tools are the only brand he buys. He likes their dependability and that they carry the label, “Made in the USA.” I watched him trim the mesquite tree with ease using his Dewalt reciprocating saw.
When I trimmed the big mesquite tree (the one next to the Best Little Trailer), I used a hacksaw. I got the job done but it took a lot of effort and time.
If you prefer an easier method to cut branches and brush or, if you know someone who would like to receive a saw as a gift, the link below takes you to the cordless version at Amazon:
