I looked at the tall front yard grass, and thought, hey, it can wait. Then I looked at the back yard, and couldn't make out the rear fence. oh well. up comes the lawnmower and away I go.
not quite. It was so hot and muggy, I had to stop a couple of times just to let the sweat run off me,
Then when that was neat as a hair pin, I started on the back yard. nope. my pal came over and wanted to go to the grocery store. I needed cat food and 40 lbs of kitty litter ( plus shredded wheat and two 9 volt batteries-$5.97! outrages)
Got back and finished the rear. but after carrying up 40 lbs of kitty litter one flight of stairs, I've had it. off to the bath and then dinner.
Now I'm waiting for the laundry to get done. it's 9PM now.
but, more good news. A friend bough a Willy's Jeep. 1950! I haven't seen it yet, but I bet its grand.
