Driving to Work

 I know I post a lot of these pictures.

 I'm not really sorry about it.
 If you rode with me in the mornings,
 You couldn't sleep for me saying
 Wow!  Just look at that gorgeous sky!

 Ignoring, if you are able, the unsightly boats piled on the stray trailer in the backyard, look past them to that majestically tall tree.
 Yes. This one with the branches drooping low enough to sweep the ground whenever a little breeze rushes by.
 Here's the reason why. The tree is loaded with fruit.
 By November we should have a bumper crop of pecans.

Ten years ago, this tree was almost destroyed by an ice storm. All the branches were broken in half and dangling. but its roots were deep. And so, it survived, just as it has survived these last two dry years. Deep roots...yield fruit.
