What do you plan to do with it now?

Probably turn it into a salt garden so nothing grows there again. Its a very steep hill :)

No landscaping? We have a hill like that. We throw weeds, grass clippings, leaves and branches down it. Eventually, we’ll be able to build on it. :)

Nothing there to stop it from washing down?

I’ve had trouble with a slight hill that even with a grass cover gets infested with some dry soil kind of beetle.

London has a lot of wharves and quays and piers all over the place, and that looks like London to me. Bryan, his brother and sister-in-law and I walked all over London on vacation once.

On other vacations, just Bryan and I walked all over the place.

But I have to say that the very best time I had in the UK was in Scotland. I loved it there, the weather, the people, Edinburgh, Oban, Ullapool, other cities, and the countryside. The lochs are gorgeous too.

Got it under control the hard way.
St. Augustine grass all the way to the bayou now, changed the slope with a shovel, by hand, in the really steep areas, have a specially modified old Snapper riding mower that can handle the slope.
Took nearly 2 years to get it where I wanted it.
It was a *Quest* not just a hard job, LOL.

See his Budweiser jacket? Approximately 30 years ago, I was given 300 yards of that fabric! What the heck to do with it? LOL. My Mom ended up making curtains for the playroom’s and in her house and mine, the pool room in my house and I don’t remember what else.

My Mom made my eldest son a shirt in that fabric, and given that he was only in Elementary school, the first day he wore it his teacher sent a note home with him asking me if I thought a shirt that advertising a BEER was proper for a child?

I called my Mother to tell her about it and we had a good and long laugh. We decided that I had to reply to his teacher, but my Mother couldn’t think of anything to say.

At that time, I actually owned 2 Liquor stores, so I wrote back to the teacher and told her, that I saw no problem at all with the shirt, that his grandmother had made it, and it wasn’t as though I was sending a 6 pack in his lunch. LOL.

No, not denim, but a very nice cotton! It washed and dried quite nicely.... Very little, if any, ironing required.

She also made my daughter a sundress and a jumper from the fabric and my daughter never had any problems wearing either. No complaints from teachers. LOL.
