    Jim, no mesquite out here in East Texas, but I have a big Honey Locust that I can't get within a 100 feet of. It's not going to give me another flat tire on the tractor if I can help it.

    While out clearing some brush yesterday, I was surprised to find an old bee hive that had been abandoned 2 years ago, was active and open for business It's in a cavity in a large Oak, all summer we have seen exactly 3 honey bee's, actually quite alarming, especially with the decline they're reporting. This colony will get the "kid glove" treatment I know they aren't Africanized, My tractor tire scraped bark off the opening, while I was "hugging" the tree to push off a 3' dead limb that blocks a view from my deer stand, they buzzed up, I backed off, life goes on. I like those bees!!!

    I have two mesquite trees on my whole place and still have managed to get two tractor flats from the thorns.
    I guess I was lucky in that I never got a flat on my tractor, inspite of the mesquite. However, one day I was helping a neighbor load so cattle in a trailer to go to auction when I stepped on a mesquite limb I didn't see and a thorn went right through the bottom of my shoe and into my foot. Since it was in a messy cow lot, I went by a doctor's office and got a tetanus shot.

    And we (my wife, her sister, and myself) just saw him yesterday. Wonder when we'll find out what caused the fire.

    Bird, they are saying it was an overload or short in the electrical junction box in his boot area. You'd have thought somebody would smell something getting hot, but maybe not with all the smells around the fair. The heat went right up inside the open frame body and flames exploded around his neck.

    I'm thinking it was a conspiracy to keep him from becoming old enough to draw Social Security. Big Tex was a Boomer, you know?

    Yeah, Jim, Big Tex was gettin' up in years, but he still looked pretty good yesterday. By the way, we probably should have taken your advice and ridden the trains yesterday, but I drove down there instead, as usual. And I don't guess I've ever seen any more traffic, so it was slow going, but at least no accidents to shut down the roads anywhere, so no problems other than just being slow.
