We attacked the grass, it really grew last week during all the rain. I drove that stupid new lawn mower, I so want my old mower back but I think Far Guy took it to the dump. This new machine has hydrosomething drive..just a fancy smancy name for ways to confuse an old woman. I just want a lawn mower to go forward and cut..that’s it. I don’t care if it will mow whilst going backwards..I never drive backwards anyway..but Far Guy made a big deal out of showing me that if I pushed some button I could mow while driving backwards. Did I try it? No..I am not fond of backwards…and the hydrosomething..I am not a fan..my foot gets tired. I am used to using my foot to stop..not to go.
I had a vehicle once that lost it’s R. For 18 months I never backed up, I only used a pull through parking spot in town..and if I had to back up I opened the door and got out and pushed it backwards..gosh I miss that vehicle. Some days I wish I had it back..I know it will be a great collectors item some day.
Far Guy trimmed while I mowed..then he got out the anger management stuff (Roundup) and I murdered a whole bunch of Poison Ivy..take that..you evil little plant…suck in that poison in the sunshine and shrivel up and die…ha hah ahaaa. It felt so good.
We went for a ride and stopped to visit neighbors..some were mowing and some had just finished mowing.
It is going to rain again and it is still cold here although yesterday we had some sunshine so it felt warmer than the 64 degrees it was.
We talked to Adam, his pain is only a one..he reports that he has a hard time opening a bag of chips unless he uses his teeth..and his Mom helps him get cleaned up and dressed. He cannot play computer games..but he can play his X-Box. I suggested that he read. Ya..he guessed he could do that. He will get a cast sometime this week..he wants a green one:)
