Working The Fields

Junior has been busy working for Del, his ex-father-in-law. This is the same man who is trying to open up a produce stand/flower store. In the past, he has gone to the farmers market and bought produce to sell. This year, he decided to grow his own produce. He has hundreds of tomato, okra, cantaloupe, and watermelon plants in the ground in a field behind his mother-in-laws house. He asked Junior a few weeks ago to help him set up an irrigation system, but he didn't want to buy one. He wanted Junior to figure out how to make one from scratch. Luckily Junior is good at that kind of thing. Well, he is good at a lot of things. He could work for San Francisco general contractors. He has a knack for figuring out how something should be done, and then he can do it. Just like that. He doesn't have to write out a plan. He amazes me sometimes doing that.

Anyway, once the produce starts coming in, Junior will be in charge of running the produce stand. Del tried to get me to do it, but I said no. I have too many other things going on right now.

Like sitting in the sun, enjoying a good book, or watching the kids swim and have fun in the pool. T
