NOTHING TO SAY TODAY FEBRUARY 9, 2015
My every other day has plenty to say, and has innumerable topics to pick apart. The number one thing I have to talk about on those “every other” day subjects is water conservation — mainly because all I have to do is look out front across the street, and see that neighbor’s water from the grass running across the sidewalk into the street, down the gutter, and he has, without a doubt, the rattiest looking grass and so-called landscaping for miles around. And it is a teeny-weeny area –- maybe 5 feet from the sidewalk to the garage wall by 35 feet along the sidewalk. Then there are 2 moth-eaten pepper trees to top it off. And I don’t even want to mention how he bought a new car a couple of months ago and drags it out several times a week to wash it on the big driveway.
Another thing I have nothing to talk about today is the planning and building of hotels, business buildings, lots of homes for loads of people. Think of all THAT water. It doesn’t take rocket scientists, I guess, to act as city fathers or mothers on the councils of these cities located here in the Valley, but they are supposed to do good for the population. The new structures should not have any water pipes, but would have to wait for the water table to raise to where it was before the drought conditions, I would have to say. That is, if I had anything to say today.
