Well, not Curtis James Jackson III, and not really 50 cents.
My day off began pretty relaxed. In fact, I did not even set my alarm clock and slept in until 7 AM. My birds were not thrilled about this and expressed thier discontent. I obediently catered to giving them fresh water and food.
A hot cup of coffee and an epic breakfast was really appreciated after doing my chores.
I moved on to “straightening” the garage. Yeah right. I did that and threw a few balls at a bat for a youngster.
Pretty chill. Laid Back.
I talked to our neighbor, Ozzy, who we affectionately call, “Brown Dog”. He is pretty scary when he barks, but we get along well.
With a full belly and a beautiful day, me and a resident expert proceeded to discuss the finer points of Minecraft while hanging out in the backyard.
Anyway, I hear my Beloved’s car pull up as she had been shopping.
She hopped out of the car. “Benjamin, mulch is 55 cents a bag at Wal-Mart right now. You should pick some up.”
I knew this would change everything, but I was ok with it.
I have been told I am a beast when I get working.
Now, when I got to Wal-Mart, I met the world renowned blogger, Herb Thiel. He told me his wife had sent him and he bought 30 bags.
Not to be outdone, I purchased 40. I didn’t ask Herb Thiel if he got a senior discount.
Now, a pile of mulch doesn’t do a lot of good sitting there so we got to work. I found some perfectly good rocks and dug my shovel in.
When I get working, I don’t have a lot of quit in me. I set my focus on the task and do it until it’s done. It started raining. I sang while I shoveled until lighting came from On High.
Then I just shoveled.
Several hours passed and this is what it ended up looking like.
I sat and admired our work. We made good time. I was a little tired.
55 Cents. Curtis Jackson, you have big shoes to fill today.

Hard work gets paid off in the land. Great!
I am glad you like it! I find that the rock gets super hot in the summer and very cold in the winter. The wood chips seem to regulate temperature and moisture better.
You did a lot! Wow. It looks really great, the mulching and land. And the food looks absolutely delicious from the pictures you shared.
Hello Lucy! I am exhausted! We worked fast because I have to go to my real job tomorrow! I appreciate the compliments, Thank You! My Beloved Cooks like that quite often!
Amazing job! What breed is the neighbour? Looks like and Indian pariah.
I would call him an all American Mutt. I do not know the breed.
Do you have many street dogs in america?
Not where I live. How about you?
That’s what I imagined.
Yes. Too many of them. But more often than not they are treated as pets. People give them food and they guard the place at night. If they don’t recognise the person they see, they might act aggressive.
The reason for theie high population is partially that few people take the Indian pariah as a pet. That is quite ironic, since it was the first dog breed to ever be domesticated. From what I hear, Its staus saw decline when the colonialists promoted the western breeds, and degraded the once popular breed to a street dweller.
Wow. Cool history lesson! It kinda looks like one after looking it up.
History lesson 😂.
What did you find on looking it up?
Photos that look like Ozzy, the brown dog next door.
Yeah. Next time you meet him, ask him where he comes from. Perhaps he has an interesting ancestral lineage to talk about.
Thanks for the compliment!
Senior discount ‽‽‽ Whippersnapper! We’ll see who’s senior. After my nap. Actually, you know, I am still new to this senior business and didn’t even think to ask. Thanks for helping me load up the car, too.
Enjoyed the tale. Busy day. Senior discount haha.
Thanks! Don’t encourage him, lol.
Good to hear from you Kritika! How are you doing?
Very well. Thank you. 😊🌷
How are you doing?
I am well! Working Lots of hours! Covid is wearing on me a little.
I can understand. Covid is harming a lot.
The days are heavy. Hope everything works out well sooner.
Me as well! Stay strong friend!
I am sure you are doing great!
Thank you for motivating. Have a great day.
You as well!
I love the joke about senior discount 😅
You’re just encouraging him!
You done a great job friend !! 😊
Wow! That looks tiring!
Asking if he got a senior discount…🤣🤣🤣
I am pretty sore to be honest!
I don’t blame ya.
Today is a long one. 10 hours with the incarcerated. 🤠🔥
How is the homefront over there?
How are you and your family over there?
Oh. We aint doing anything really. Just chilling out.
You could write us a letter!🤠🔥
Umm…. No. Actually, we would be quite depressed if you sent is your regards here at Willow Manor and Brother’s Campfire.
I know. I already thought of that.
I am depressed just thinking about you thinking about it.😞 The agony.
Waaa 😭 Sob…. Someone is thinking of writing to us.
Snotty Nosed Little Sister.😝
Ha ha! Have you ever had a Hertz Donut?
Nope. Sounds healthy.
Pulls a chair from under you. Hurts, Don’t It? 😝😄😄😄
My little sister is a bad influence. She taught me to be that way.
I don’t wanna know your little sister then.
Her name is Lydia Potter.
Never heard of her
She is a packet of trouble. Watch out.
A packet? Lol
Perhaps a small container.
Sure. Whatever. Yeah. Alright.
Or perhaps a Snickers.
Watch it, you young whippersnapper, you!
But, but, but…. you’re my dad!!!!!!!!!!
I saw a sign in a restaurant that said, “Don’t criticize our coffee. Someday you will be old and weak, too.”
Ohhhh… is that sale still going? I went to my first Walmart Supercenter last week and now understand why some people like it. I have to return something and exchanging it for mulch would be nice.
Your mulched area looks great!!
I think the sale was local to get rid of old product. Thanks for the kind words!
Looks like a pretty good day.
What a way to spend a day. Never forget that the “Senior Discount” is coming for you. No one can escape it. A wonderful post. Thank you for sharing. Stay safe.
Thank you for the sound advice! Have a beautiful day Friend!
Lovely post Ben. And beautiful pix. How have you been my friend?
Sanjana, thank you for your kind words. I have been working a lot of hours at the prison due to Covid and other things. Things overall are well! How are you?
It’s been a while. Same here, was little busy with sorting out my health issues but all good now. Things seems really good in NZ with covid-19 and hopefully it’s the same elsewhere.
We have an increase in covid here in Colorado. I will pray for your health condition. 🔥🤠
I enjoyed reading this, it is beautiful.
Thank you Berina Berry! I appreciate you stopping by!🔥🤠
You are welcome.

Ha ha! I am still a little sorr!
