MY DAILY CALENDAR…DAY 266 – SEPTEMBER 23, 2013
MY DAILY CALENDAR FOR MONDAY, DAY 266 OF 2013: With luck, I might just be able to get some of the grass cut. That is if I have the energy to drag the power mower and extension cords out of the house. Except for the hill on front lawn, it’s all flat walk behind and push the mower around. Hell, when we first moved here I used an old Scott’s non-power reel mower. It was a lot of work, but it gave the lawn a golf course look. It’s also still sitting back in the garage. Frankly, I’m not as young as I used to be.
From the reel mower I upgraded to the gas mower. I would always start by grabbing the gas can and walking three block to the filling station fill it up for a buck. When it reached the point where a buck failed to fill up the can, I moved on to electric. The old gas mower is still sitting in the garage, too.
My electric was a LAWN HOG made by Black and Decker.And it has been my mower of choice for the past ten years. It’s lightweight and gives a smooth cut. Though I think I should start looking into replacing the blade. And okay, I only ran over the power cord one time and cut it in half. It was the cords fault anyway.
But, instead of cutting the grass, I could do the laundry instead. I’m OK on the underwear, but my sock supply is running low. Don’t snicker, that’s the bachelor laundry code.
THE ORIGAMI CHALLENGE – THE YACHT: Wow, the calendar actually offered something that qualified as a possible origami project.
Opps, I think that might have dated me a bit.
