A different view...

This a carry over from the previous post 'Never enough time'...it shows a different perspective...a different picture of all those 'blasted vines'...I took the pic with a web cam and maybe the angle/view was off...so I took another one from a different angle...also to put the 'magnatude'{of all those blasted vines} into perspective...maybe I can be a little more discriptive...the deck {{which...by the way...I built with my own two hands}} is 40 feet across {the handrail or guardrail is about 35 ft}...I used a simple construction method {top rail, which you could lean-on and a safety rail halfway down to prevent 'little ones' from falling 'cost efficient method'} the deck is about 32ft long...but is not all deck because it is built around an above ground pool...the main deck area is about 16ft wide and roughly 32ft long...the deck itself is close to 26ft from my backdoor...all of this is enclosed with a privacy fence {shadow box}...that is roughly 60ft of fenceing straight out from the corners of my house...Oh! I forgot to mention...since the deck is so far off the ground I used lattice across the front...for astecic purposes {to hide the pool}...back to the issue at hand...the vines have filled in {almost} everything across the front...went under the deck and started to create a wall of 'green' along the fence...one oneside 'it' has already reached the end of the fence {that's 60ft} the other side 'it' has just started {longer distance to go...across the front of deck}...and only covers about 5ft...

You know when I think about it...and write about it...trying to convey the magnitude of these 'blasted vines'...it's OhSo daunting and I have to wonder WTF am I doing this for...it 'consumes' so much of your time {especially now}...you end-up with sore hands w/a million nics-n-cuts...a pile of refuse that needs to bagged and/or drug to the curb...

But...you know what...in the long-run it is OhSoworth it all...because...'it' is a part of my own 'private utopia'...my own 'green' Garden-of-Edan in the 'concrete jungle' our world is/has become...

Maybe...when I'm old-n-grey...I'll just cut everything back and let 'it' die...

Better yet...I'll have the money to hire a young straping buck to do all the work...and just sit there and 'watch' that viril youngman and 'daydream'...about those daze {and if I were 50yrs younger...I'd...} Now!! That is something to look forward to I have droned on long enough...Tootles

I do own a pair of hedge trimmers and have been known to prune here and there. But I don't wear jorts nor tank tops!!

It's ohso worth it when you sit back and take it all in isn't it? I did that, that and that. Same goes with life, kids, job, etc., you get back what you put into it{=}.

Why pay someone when you can get all of these volunteers? Besides if you don't do the work now how can you sunbath nude later?
XOXO

    I thought I was going to do the job.
    You are going to hire someone else?
    And I bought all these yellow and orange shorts
    just for the job.
Daniel{=} Oh!! No you can't get of helping...I was saying when I'm old-n-gray I would hire a young hunk...then sit around a daydream...there is still that position available...myself I prefer pink or purple shorts but a nice pair of blue jean shorts would do the trick...but I'm sure no matter what you wore it would be OhSopurrfect

smooches...OhSo{=}

Rock{=}Shush...that is supposed to be a secret j/k I may have plenty of volunteers now...but in about 50 yrs...when I thought about hiring a young buck to do the work...I don't really think any of us would be capable...we could all just sit around and reminisce...those were the dazes

OhSoL{=}Considering these are the OhSolustful meanderings of an old lady (when I'm 50 yrs older}to hire a young buck to do my yard work...I don't think he would be interested in talking 'trade' with a dirty minded old lady
