We don't have much problem with ants up here {although I have acouple of uncles I'm not real fond of}
I'm In eastern Illinois. I used to go to a little town in Texas called Howe--which is about 60 miles or so north of Dallas--Also been to Mongomery, Tx (west of Wichata Falls} a couple of times. The farthest south I've ever been in Tx was a town called Donie--somewhere between Dallas and Houston.

One of my best pals at a big construction job was my superintendent by the name of Harley Howe.He was from Illinoise..A heck of a good man but was like a gypsy,He went all over the country to do dirt work.

Nothing wrong with being a gypsy. We had a local farmer here who was about 60 years ols when his wife passed away unexpectedly. He turned the farming operation over to his sons, bought 3 new New Holland TR95 Combines, and started a custom wheat harvest business. I think they used to start in Texas and end up in Nebraska. Last i heard he was still at it, 70 something and havin' the time of his life. I heard he even found him a new wife along the way!

Harley took his wife and big travel trailer along.He did the summers in high paying union jobs up north but came down south to work winters at lower paying regular construction jobs,But I said Harley,17 bucks an hour is more than I can spend.He wanted me to go north with him and get in the union> I dont like the weather so I stayed but I miss my ole pal Harley.
