Many of the older neighborhoods in Mesquite NV do not have Home Owner Associations - NO HOA fees. That is one more monthly bill that you do not have to pay for the privilege of homeownership. The bad news is that you either have to pay someone to maintain the outside of your home ..... or do it yourself. There is no Homeowner Association to take care of the yardwork. So get out those gloves!
Some of our beautiful yards in the Santa Fe Vistas neighborhood in Mesquite have lovely palm trees that may grow as high as 30 feet.
The Good News:
Lovely to look at, especially with a light breeze fluffing the fronds (froms?) way up in the sky.
The Bad News:
They need to be trimmed once a year and there is no HOA to take care of that. Did I mention that they may be 30 feet high?
Get out the blue plastic gloves and get ready for a tough job!
Why blue plastic gloves? Actually, they do not have to be blue, but my favorites are the size small stretchy ones that I borrowed from the hospital emergency room. They are blue. They also are sanitized.
The heavy-duty leather gloves just chafe my hands! But the thick leather gloves are required to safely trim trees with a chainsaw and a machete.
I just hate that chafey feeling and it ruins my nails. So before I put the rough heavy-duty leather gloves on, I smother my hands with Vaseline intensive care cream and put the blue stretchies on.
Then I wear the leather safety gloves over the blue stretchies and still feel like a lady - I know that $30 manicure is safe!
With my special glasses and those funny boots with the spikey things sticking out of the soles, up the ladder I go with my chain saw and machete!
There I am swingin' around that palm tree and having a great time chopping and trimming those palm fronds. (froms? whatever)
My husband always cleans up the mess when I am done trimming the palm trees.
He thinks I look so cute in this outfit! He bought me a darling safety hat to protect my fair skin from those disgusting bugs that live up there.
And those spikey boots are great to wear to those big clearance sales at the local department stores...
...those other ladies just step aside when I barge forward to get that last $4 sweater on that sale rack. I wear the gloves, too!
I always enjoy my Palm Tree Trimming Day! And save $$ on HOA fees. :)
OK, OK, OK !!! That really isn't me trimming the palm trees. It was Carlos Deleon - tree trimming specialist in Mesquite NV. I don't even own a machete.
Carlos does full landscaping work as well as maintenance and yard work. He does a great job and never leaves a mess behind. And he doesn't even wear the blue gloves with the lotion. But I would've.
And those are my blue goves under my kitchen sink.
So if you live in a Mesquite Neighborhood with NO HOA FEES - Call Carlos DeLeon for Lawn Care. Or me - I'd like to get some wear out of that cute outfit.
