"You said sort of the longer term landscape option, instead of that flash in a PAN would put some impatience that are just GonNa die soon as the fraud came. You know get over that. Yeah! Yeah Yeah, and so another group that I think in earlier correspondence we both agreed is an obsession are the milk weeds, and whenever I think of like Perry Rocky Areas I get really excited about different weeds growing up. It was incur data to species I love deeply, but I like to see variety right, and you've probably got a exposure to a lot of really cool milk weeds. I don't know when I first became obsessed with that route plants, but I really am obsessed that Vance on the first time I. Ever grew was sleepiest to Barrosa. Just and the reason I found. It was because it's one of the few Bright Orange Flower Reynolds. Edit was one of the few mope weeds that was available at the nurseries was never called milkweed. It was called butterfly. I even know of one guard center that I was a teenager used to sell up. Is Orange glory flower because? By anything with leader, McConnell, name and butterfly weed does not like transplanting. It has a gear by tap roots. It's the last prince out of the ground in the spring, and it's not. It wasn't entirely reliable I was looking at. I think I know your relatives. And eventually eventually figured out that the relatives that was recognizing were Hoya. House was like your flowers are remarkably similar to a Hoya and I discovered later. They're both same family. One is tropical in temperate, and so that one I have liked for a long time, but it's not one hundred percent reliable Mike Climate for native milk weeds. We have Manitoba has serious and in her. NATTA occasionally has in our NATTA. It's rare spiezio size ladies. The Western milkweed or the showy milkweed is actually one of the few. That is actually weedy. While it's, it can be very of in the Martin I would not put five space. It hates disturbance. It's really hard for centers. Sell it because they do not want to be in container. They have running rights. I have seen shown the Western world. We pushed through Ashphalt will. It is ridiculous and relentless commits me secretly. The. Flowers are which fragrance and they are instead of being a little cluster cluster actually involves which I find interesting holidays Lovett's. It's really really easy to Germany. where he wanted to live. And it does actually it's for acreage in large gardens. rubrics read. It's very useful at. It's very well adapted to our flowers in June when moisture is abundant and by the middle of summer. It's you know it's was big. Deep roots are moisture. You often get really good fall color on it's it's usually yellow and quite vivid and quite showy, and the seed pods are needs. I had a big bouquet of those dried seedpods in my living room for launch. Nice, and the the fluff from the weeds is collected by earls shocks like that to line their winter burrows whether sleeping. and birds will use the following year for nesting material so I always say the milkweed. You're a very useful. More plant that contributes so I like that one I can't use it very often. sleepiest folio is native here. It's little. It's maybe a foot tall, but it's it's huge I didn't find it showy in the garden and so small, so if I grown again and it's easy to germinate. I would have to plant it somewhere where it could be appreciated close because while it is very pretty, it's not flashy, right. So, and then we have one complete Weirdo which is the green milkweed sleepiest Baretta Flora. Which is usually pretty small at his big leathery leaves and weird green flowers at. It's not at all showing the first time I found it I was like what is this? The first place I ever found it was writing on stone provincial heart, which is in southeastern number, thirty meters north of the Montana border, and it's in an environment where there is cactus rattlesnakes, and you know things that people don't expect candidates have and in amongst in amongst -at's that's green milkweed Bros, and it's just. I've never collected seed from it. I've never I've never tried to grow it because it's I. Don't know what I would do with it or where. But it's it's neat. I like knowing it's near. And I know see rose sometimes some of the more tropical species as annuals. I grow sleepiest per. Which is Mexican and I growth as an annual big tops planters I love it, and there's one that I don't know if you've ever been to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center. I have just an Austin Texas which is like there's lots of reasons to go to Texas that was mine, and it was amazing at that was where I fell in love with Scorpius. Ruled out. I saw that there have been coveting ever since it is sort of a pale green with dark violet or burgundy areas, and I said what is this? How do I make the rest of my life about? They didn't have I was there at the wrong side of the year? They do sell seeds, but they didn't have any available that time. I have never been able to find a seat source for his asked ruler at. My levels of happiness would would skyrocket significantly you. Have that in my life, and I know it would not survive the winter. I know that. The. Annual? I love that genus not that seeds pollinators I love the weird way that they trap butterflies pollinating I love that monarch caterpillars are the only caterpillars that are genuinely Chook, little, black and yellow racing stripe. I, think milk weeds are just. They are so diverse, and they come in so many colors and the. Different shapes different sizes. Some of them are sentenced. Some of them are some of them are adapted to dry some wet. You know the World Milkweed A. Ladda has. Ramped like leaves and I'm like you're so elegant and sophisticated. How Sad! This beautiful genus you know has weighed in the common name there and also I like anything poisonous like full disclosure like men like to drive race cars, and some men like to collect. and. I like to things that could kill you and I. Don't know what. Micro Milk Leads I. Feel dangerous and you know like. Like having poisonous things in the Garden Nancy just me my friends. The errands from this podcast you we, we talked about growing a devils Gardner, just like a poisoners guardian of just same thing, the theme of plants that can kill you run at your own risk..

Andrea DeLong-Amaya, Women Working in the World of Plants

"We continue cultivating places. Women's history month interviews. Were joined this week by Andrea Delong Amaya director of horticulture for the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center at the University of Texas. At Austin it is also the botanic garden for the State of Texas Andrea has been on staff for over twenty years and has more than thirty years of experience in horticulture. She Guides fifteen staff members in the design and management of nine acres of Native Plant Gardens. Two hundred and seventy five acres of natural areas and in native plant nursery. She teaches classes in native plant horticulture and writes and presents on her passion for the field widely. She spoke with US late. Last autumn to share more about the history and work of the centre including it. Being the legacy of another extraordinary woman ladybird Johnson Andrea shares. Her own enthusiasm for this field of work. Welcome Andrea Hi. How you doing? I'm great how are you wonderful? I'd love for you to start by describing describe the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center as visually as you can for listeners. Who may not have been there. And then we'll talk a little bit about your specific work there Andrea Sherr so we are in a South Austin and in the middle of Texas. We're in a part of the state that we refer to as Texas El country or the Edwards Plateau which is a beautiful beautiful part of the state. Of course Texans will say every part of the state is beautiful but I WANNA say text. The central Texas area is particularly beautiful especially in the spring were really renowned for having excellent wildflower displays including the Texas blue on it which occurs all over the state but the central Texas areas particularly flora for us in the spring. And so we are like I said in Austin and the site that were on is a public garden where about two hundred and eighty five acres. I think we actually added a little bit more In the last year or so and it's a public garden where we feature plants that are native to the state of Texas. That's the site now. The organization is bigger than that But the gardens here. We're demonstrating hell different. Native plants can be used in different kinds of landscapes different kinds of styles. We have collections of plants. From different parts of the State we are the Botanic Garden Texas. So we're trying to increase our collections to represent other parts of the state as well as the central Texas area so we have about nine acres of cultivated gardens and then we have a sixteen Acre Texas Arboretum of trees So those are the horticultural areas in then. We have natural areas in The other parts of the the property And that the natural areas also include some research areas. We have some Areas where we're doing Land Management prescribed fire treatments and different kinds of land-management to see how that influences the vegetation. Yeah we can talk more about that. If you're if you like definitely definitely I will i. I would love to get into some of the specifics of each of those areas you just described but before we get there. Describe your your your job there what it entails and may be the trajectory of your twenty years there. Andrea. Yeah well. I started as a gardener appropriately and really enjoy working outside. I mean I've always been interested in being outdoors and that goes way back to my childhood is probably most people who have an affinity for the natural world That usually starts childhood so I grew up doing things outdoors with my parents particularly with my dad. We'd go camping or canoeing. And I remember having a field guide of of wildflowers weeds that surrounded our area where we lived and that was great. Fun everything from astronomy to birds and lizards and insects. Just everything is so interesting And I just find that the more I learn about things the more I'm fascinated and in awe of the natural world so that's just started early but it's just been a long a lifelong interest in learning more and observing more. I mean I laugh. We have a big picture window at our dining room table. And that's our TV. We don't have an actual electronics of the Inter House. It's overlooking a garden and pond and we just sit there and watch the animal antics and what's blooming and it's great fun and it's a nice way to slow down in our fast paced world That's a that's a big part of what I think. Nature does for me and for a lot of people So you started as a gardener. What year was that Andrea and then tell us about the progression of your rules at the Center Which clearly you progressed in because of your deepening curiosity and ever expanding knowledge base. Yes so I started in December of nine hundred ninety eight and Worked as a gardener I've guarded in most of the areas that we have in Under cultivation over the years and at some point we had Position of gardens manager was available so I moved into that and then I don't know maybe fifteen years ago I transitioned into the direct report culture and Unfortunately that means a little bit less guarding than I used to do. But it also gets me in a higher level of designing decision making which is very exciting and allows me to have more influence over some of the bigger picture things that are happening And then overseeing the natural areas arboretum and the nurseries also been pretty pretty fun and adds different interest to what what I'm looking at. Yeah so talk about Before we get into the specifics of some of the programmatic areas and display areas there and then the research give listeners. A history of the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center when it started what it's original mission in scope was of course the wonderful woman for whom it is named and by whom it was founded in its original iteration and So that that people have an understanding of just how much bigger is then. A Garden appreciating wildflowers. Because that is a fabulous mission but it's it is much bigger than that so we're very blessed to have had the visionary Labor Johnson as founder. She founded the wildflower center. Initially as the wildflower research center. The National Welfare Research Center and that was an endeavor that she took on with her friend and actress. Helen Hayes which a lot of people don't remember that part of of the history but it's Kinda Funny Mrs Johnson didn't feel like she had enough name. Recognition Systems of Helen Hayes. And so her mission right from the beginning was to really try to understand an unlocked the secrets of wildfires in native plants and understand how they grow and that was the original research. The the wildflower center did at that time and so that was a nineteen eighty two so the organization started back. Then we moved to our current site as a public garden Before it was more just a research site with some portables but it didn't really have botanical garden kind of exhibits. Someone moved to Our current site in one thousand nine hundred ninety five that was really a big focus of making the space Amenable to guests and having exhibits that people can interact with and having educational programming and really elaborating on that when she first started it. Why we'll just remind listeners? She was of course the first lady of the United States and she Had A as firstly. She had some remarkable initiatives to beautify. I think was the word that was used then. roads and highways across the country and she was taken by the wildflower diversity there in her home state for good reason. Because it's a pretty remarkable native flora. Will you talk a little bit about that? And and why people thought this was not just a pretty project but was worthy of deep research. Even at that time so yeah. Mrs Johnson grew up in a rural setting and without siblings so she was a long time so her best friend is. A child was outside Just the outdoors and I think that was what what instilled upon in her the scrape passion for the for the natural world and then as she became first lady She really had a great influence on President Johnson in terms of Passing legislation one of the things he's known for is the beautification. Act The highway beautification. Act and getting billboards off of the roadsides and cleaning up roadsides and planting wildflowers and the way I understand it you know we talk about it is being beautification and she knew at the time. She was very savvy that at the time. She knew that that was a word that would engage people. The public secretly I. I've heard that she felt like that was actually kind of a word and that it is she. I think she understood. It was deeper than just beautification was away to connect people with the idea that she

"The website, and there's a contact page on there. Tells you how to get a hold of us in or you can send the photo a good time to also start trimming are trees. Yeah. You can be pruning any dormant tree. I just don't pray in my evergreens yet. Wait till later in the winter for that. But you don't want to cut trees can be done now. Yeah. Well, thank you. I hope so and get luck with your issues. All right. Bye. Bye. Okay. Let's go to Janice and elegant. Hey, janice. Thanks for waiting. Hi. This is Denise Denise. I'm calling about a similar question. It's about weeds that are coming up in the lawn, and it's not really a lawn. It's more of just a a weed patch. You know, my front yard is Wade patch. But at at one time several years back we were pulling up what we're now calling for Serb Davey and frog fruit and things like that. Because they were we'd now they're like, okay. These are nice little Brown's covers. It's I'm wondering if some of these other things that are coming up, and I think that late in may have been talking about what I call him bit. Oh, you know, what I didn't even think about that. But yes, hand bids probably a very good guess on that. But there I'm wondering if there's another if there are new weeds that we're now going to, cultivate, as good ground cover for grassy areas that where the brash is not doing well Kim bit is kind of tall and lanky. So you gotta keep it mode. You don't see pretty purple flowers? But do you have any others that are like starting to become more popular than I haven't heard of that? I'm pulling up as wage that I shouldn't be. Well, that is a huge question. I think it would entirely depend upon what's in your yard. Certainly the little. Clover. Fish plants that I've been talking about in the name, which I know as well as kids name is the yellow and purple, and they look like clover. But they have these little flowers those are very good and their native than everybody freaks out when they see him. But would that be the bur clover? No clovers has got more of a reddish it forms an actual Burr. Kind of all over. I've got a ton of that. Yeah. That. Mm. I think you've hit the main ones the other little ground native ground covers that might be. Would be the native that again a nitrogen fixing plant. It could be the the little straggler daisy. Are the Hamanaka sending to say Hamanaka? Stacey is absolutely fabulous. And that could possibly be coming up little yellow flowers. You know, the the website wildflowers dot org. From the lady bird Johnson Wildflower center. It's invaluable, and it's a good way to to identify things. And find out what you have and the other one. That's just amazing. Although it is from Austin towards the hill country is Marshall Enquist Wildflower book that each area has its own sort of typical weenie plants and Elgon is different than up here on the plateau. It's different. So you might have a little bit of an issue identifying with some of the books that are specific. But the other one is wildflowers the one that gay Itta gills for road called wildflowers of Texas, which has colored edges where the colors of the flowers. So there's something flowering. You can get hurt book, and you can just open to the red section or the yellow section or something. Yeah. Very much. You're welcome. Thanks for calling Bye-bye. Okay.

"Me too. All this. So what are like the first three things I should do. And can you recommend a book that would help me along the year to be able to know what to do with my my? Will you said the back yard was full of weeds. Did they start to begin with and the front yard? No, the backyard does not have any kind of sod define it looks like some of that a lot of weeds plus at Bermuda. That goes crazy everywhere. Get rid of couldn't get rid of it. Right. Well, let's go to the back yard then. And the main thing is take a measurement of the backyard itself. Okay. Observe which direction is east and west north and south find out. What are these different directions are on your backyard? You have to use the compass. Go ahead. And then you have this. Opportunity to draw in there, the different plants that you would like to use one of the things to do that. I like to do is usually graph paper. But I'll take a garden hose out in the back, and I'll make a design out there and used the hose and make a big amoeba in the middle of the yard or anything like that. You get down to what you like, design wise, and the other thing is there is now a spray that is a water based spray for marking. So you can use that on the ground where you're about to remove the hose, and so you begin to make that design put it on the graph paper. Also. So now, we know which direction the sun is gonna come from. And we also know what kind of a design you like one of the things that I like to do is to see other native landscapes, Cheryl might be able to point some of those take some pictures of them. Sometimes there's a huge rock in the middle of it. Or in the side of it. That's a specimen rock don't need much more than that. And then you can visit places like the lady bird Johnson Wildflower center. I'm encouraging you not to run into this thing as quickly as sitting down picking out some plants look at what you like the lady bird Johnson Wildflower center. They have many displays plants organized by water. Her needs, and which ones grow in the shade. Take your camera down there with your your cell phone, whatever and take pictures of the plants and the name tag that goes with them. The put those two hours together, and then you can begin to identify the plants properly that you like that you can go to garden centers with the with the name of the plant and find them they can use for the most part, we can find all these things the the wealth our center does grow some pretty exotic natives that are not always available, but they do sell them a remember, especially one time of year. They have this big sale of something more interesting. But the the real thing is to go and walk around and see what it is that you like their native grasses that are just gorgeous in the fall beautiful even right now in the wintertime that nice Brown color on them. Provides a lot of interest in the landscape. I think that this is what I would start with. What do I like go to some magazines, Texas, gardener magazine is one of them and see what kind of designs that you might like from there where do you live again? And what part of town southeast often felt southeast Austin. Erma were running up on a break here. But here's two quick too quick reference guides for you that are very good. The Travis county master gardeners skied for Austin and central taxes. I think is the full title of it and most nurseries will carry a copy of it. The second book is. Well since Sally was scout was out without skis. Book native, Texas plants. Not only does it have a wonderful selection of natives that work in our area has some designs and also. So between the Wildflower center, and those resources take six months to a year to plan it out don't do it overnight because you're you're gonna wind up making so many changes you need to know where the sun shines where the water goes, etc. But those will be great starting points and really quickly ending to prepare the soil change always start composting. Yes. Here's what we need to do. We need to put you on hold. If Jeff is able to do that. And then come back and talk to you because you do have some questions now, I hate to see your landscape MP fuller weeds for a year, and I know you do too so hold on. We'll be back right after this news break. Newsradio KLBJ. I'm Robert Wood.

"It's a little cool outside. But you know, just like yesterday supposed to warm up and be delightful later in the day today. So good day to get out and get back Christmas shopping done. Also a good day. Get some gardening than to again, if you have any garden questions on your mind or just want to pass. Somalia. Green says always we look forward to hearing from you. Wherever you have on your mind on this Saturday mornings. So let's get the show started again five one two eight three six zero five ninety and given the week. Our thought to talk about the different plants that are holiday or Christmas related. One of those is mistletoe MS two is found all over the world of various forms of mistletoe. But we have plenty of it here in central Texas, and this is a plant that is actually parasitic. Lot of you know, that probably but YouTube growing on trees throughout central Texas. It has a root like structure that adheres to the tree and penetrates into the wood of the tree now deeply but into the sports itself by drawing moisture and nutrients from its host plant, and of course, it's associated with the holidays and has been apparently for millennia or to the the old tryst vision of kissing underneath hotel. Apparently that comes from the Vikings who knew who knew the Vikings. Anyway, I'm sure they did. But there you have it mistletoe, and it's a plant that. A lot of people in our area when they see they're concerned because it is parasitic typically doesn't cause much harm to the tree does generally weaken a tree especially older tree that's already open to diseases or other kinds of things. You can go through the trouble of removing mistletoe. It's a lot of work, and it will grow right back. The only organic way of dealing with a view are concerned about mistletoe growing on your trees, and this is way too much more. But this is recommended if you really want to arrested, and and prevent or at least kill what you have on the tree was recommended is that you use plastic bags in new individually bag each plant with like a black plastic preventing light from getting to it. And that will effectively kill it without having to use any kind of poisons, which would also harm the tree now who's going to get up into their trees and bag there mistletoe. I I don't think so. But there you have it missile tra- mistletoe again associated with Christmas and percents. Sure why it's the holidays. Maybe it's because during the wintertime, it's a green plant, and it's out there. And you see it more during the winter. So could very well be that's the cause for being associated with the holidays. Okay. Well, we have our friend Leslie of the house right now calling in from the lady bird Johnson Wildflower center and good morning. Leslie, how're you doing today? Well, my face is draining. Oh, no. Bound to catch up with cedars. Pollen. Right. Yeah. Yeah. It's a little early this year. You know, it's f- allergies is I do you become? I don't know if everybody does this. But I've become a connoisseur of pollen. And I can tell when it's cedars opposed to other things because it's the one pollen that on top of making me, cough and congested burns, my eyes. Yeah. Charming, and I can't tell if this year, I feel like this. You're at started early stretch him out. But because it's just hasn't been cold. You know, we need that real none of them. I mean, some of those trees are ready to go. And you see the big plumes that I'm, you know, just looking in the garden, and there's a bunch that still haven't really gotten. All the way read. And then we have those big wins. Come on. This time of year is beautiful as these midwinter days are these Chris dry air, which is so beautiful prettiest days of the year are December January on daylight today glorious. But when the pollen Dell I pray for rain. Yeah. The tree. Yeah. And it really is hard because it is one of those things where. Yeah. The temperatures great the ground is a little moist. You wanna be out there? I mean, I have to be out there. So I think that's why I'm suffering. But you know, when I go home, I'm like my dogs. Don't even want to go outside. You know? What can you do and everybody has their own thing for you? Van when you your pets are begging for Benadryl. Right. Yeah. I know. Exactly. Yeah. No. I have you know. Yeah. It's I have very fluffy terrier. It's and they just they don't wanna go out. They know they know out there. They don't like it evil spirits. But it is if you're not, you know, I have other people I have a neighbor fine that isn't affected she's from France. And I was like, okay. Great. And she it's so interesting to me, you know, she can she's right next door and can just under through it. And it doesn't affect her at all. So you're one of those people were really like. Say I mean, I never had an allergy in my life. Until I was about five years into living in Austin. And one nice January day David much like today. I went for walk around then called town lake. And I came back home. And I started to sneeze sneeze like three hundred times. Yeah. When it hits you if you're hard, and then my eyes swelled shut. Yeah. That's that's what I'm looking real dead right now. My eyes. Well, shut my faith is twice the size. Okay. Drinking copious amounts of water and vitamin c and yeah. The trade, but I'm gonna be out there. I'm going to be gardening today. 'cause it's a gorgeous day. It's going to be warm.

I did put in a bench cyclamen and all my pots looks so amazing at home. You know, there's some non natives just near a tree. What can you say? Care. You know, I was talking about the point said he is a couple of weeks ago. And you referenced the native. Yeah. But you know. A lot of times. You know, I encourage is like. Get them for Christmas enjoy them and then put them in the compost heap. Yeah. Actually is what we after we talked about it. Every I recall when I was at lost Maples state park this year. I took a picture of this little red bracketed plant that I know I didn't know what it was. Geologists take picture of and look it up. And I forgot about it. Amongst the thousand of a week. But you know after talking with you on backup to ensure enough points. Yeah. Yeah. And and they're really cool. Once you can get him going there there, you know, they'll see it out and and their little annuals, but they beat out in in. If you can keep them going. I have done in pots, and you know, and they just keep going and keep going, and we haven't been the garden all over and everybody stops, they just stopped cold. And they go is that and they want to stay. They don't really know that that is that is you're right. Plant that look at that point said, he's come from Mexico. So that makes sense. Yeah. Cousins would be appear. Right. The point is that are used for holiday that. I guess I don't know where and when the church and begin with Christmas, but I guess it was just the right color. Yeah. Anyway, but you haven't great holiday you gotta get out there. I gotta climb into a pond. Clean out. Mark. It's the safest place for my face to be. Around. Good underwater underwater.

Yes, down stop because this is the peak time, you know, the temperature is great the ground is a little bit wet, and you can really see start to see where plants are too close together. And so anyway at the center, we are just dividing and moving things around like mad. Yeah. Oh. This is a good time of year for that. Now into the wintertime, really good time. And you mentioned the fact of this condition is so right now it really is ideal for planning because the soil is not caked dry. Just a little bit of Tilson there. You got the moisture in the promise a more moisture to come in. You know, one thing I've noticed over the years is that when I plant things in advance of a good rain. It's like guaranteed success. Really is. And so so it really is. I mean, all the stars are aligned with all that early reign things. Like, you're standing Cyprus, and even your bluebonnets that have already come up in Germany did if you have patches that are too sick. Now's the time. You can move those things around don't be afraid to move some of those little annuals around 'cause they did germinate pretty heavy and pretty early. And so, you know, I just moved hundreds of standing cypress about four feet to the left. Sure. I know a little bit nutty. But you know, like, thanks just so. That's the place. Yeah. And you're not going to be able to do it later, you know in the spring. I don't recommend monkeying around with your annuals too much. But that really honestly, the soil is just right. And then even on some of the bigger steps like your like many as or your, you know, your mealy blue sage those, you know, some of those plants where they'll get a little bit too big into groupings. You can divide them up and moving around, and they'll take it just fine. I still cut things pretty much the ground if they're an adult plant when I move at. And I always try to remind people that when you're transplanting you wanna push all that growth energy into their route. Moore leaves rather than flowers and not trying to see the growth that's already there. So that's the only little tips. That's a great tip, actually. Yeah. Yeah. Take some pressure off the roots and let them go. Yeah. Just let them do their thing. And then I won't hurt too bad on it. But I've had a couple of different guests because of the cold asking about mulch, and yeah, multi great, but in central Texas, you want to be careful with all this moisture that you're not mulching your Woody trees and Trump's too much in the winter because it is really moist. And we are seeing you know, some some of the tougher dryer things I'm worried a little bit about rod. And so I don't want. I'm not really doing a heavy mulch around that stuff right now. On the mulching. I'd like to wait until I do a big spring clean up. You know, for the things I've let go to cedar stay up and then at that time, and then some people say, oh, no you have to the soil warms up. Know, I think that's true in a vegetable garden, but I think that in ornamental garden. It's not necessarily important. You know? Yeah. I don't think it is. And and and I think people err on the side of too much malls. And too close to the base of the trees and kind of or. Yeah. Against area. Yeah. Right. And and the little step to you want. You know, we want those seeds to germinate don't bury. They don't see any life that that would be hard. Yeah. Okay. Well, as always appreciate your call. You can get a good start. And I hope that lots of folks follow you in line this. Yeah. And I won't be around next week. Okay. Thanksgiving everybody. I'm heading north good for you know. Okay. Joy that. Yeah. Okay. Take care. Okay. Thank you. Leslie. All right..
