Yes, my neighbors think I'm odd. I mean, who does that? Who rearranges Spanish moss? What kind of man would go to all that trouble? Well apparently the lady across the street thinks a crazy man does that. As I was fussing with the moss, making sure it was arranged just right, I heard a voice with a heavy accent calling up to me.
"What ees that? Espider webs?"
"No not spider webs. It's Spanish moss ma'am."
"Why you do that. It kill tree, no?"
"No, the tree will be fine."
I don't think she believed me. When I was on the roof flinging moss like a out at the top of the tree I could see her standing across the street talking to another neighbor. They were both looking my way, then she shook her head, and walked back into her house.
