Also called Puncturevine. Wonder why.

Sue !!!

Puncturevine indeed !!!! I found out just how much when the dang things went clear through my sock barrier and stuck themselves right into the bottom of my foot. It was, I repeat it was not fun.

Cheers !!!

So I propose we adopt the query as an official mutant free drink getter.

A good time was had by all at Uncle Julio's.

This was a real meeting of like mutant-minds
It was like seeing old friends for the first time in years. Dave and Deb are mutants of the highest order! We greatly enjoyed the food, their company and can't wait to meet up again soon.

Puncturevine!

How simple, and accurate and descriptive name!

My nephews blew out bike tires on them (I like to think "goat head stickers") a bit over a year ago.

Well a strange thing happend...

Apparently my iPhone and I have forgotten my password, but my laptop remembers it....

You can't reset your password unless you know your password. Waiting on the help desk to send me a reset so I can get back on the iPhone app. I can hardly remember how to use the full version...

Doh!

So glad for that, Barb!

I am, however, (and Nola would testify) a sissy. A woos. A weaknessite!

Should the HS city council be provided a warning?

Or an invite to a campfire at the GC?

The only problem I see with the name puncturevine is that they don't grow on a vine. Lord help us if we had to contend with those awful punctuators in the air AND on the ground.

There's only one thing worse --sand burs! Small stickers that poke you AND STING!

We will be based mostly around Tucson area. Anywhere I can find a good BLM spot. In Feb we are biting the bullet and springing for a whole month at Desert Trails.
