But even Granny Clampett needed help sometimes.
Mom has lived in a nearby town in the same house on a corner lot since 1959. Three children, nine grandchildren and six great-grandchildren later, she finds her peace in the flower beds that surround her residence.
That peace was disrupted several weeks ago as temperatures warmed.
Sitting around her kitchen table one Sunday after church, she explained (complained really) that her side yard has been invaded. She didn't say specifically, but I think she wanted me to do something about it.
