Running out of summertime

.

Jeez, I have been putting in hours of yard-work most everyday since April and I still have many major projects that either are in progress or totally untouched. While I have not been diligent on keeping up with my blog entries, for the most part I have kept up reading the blogs listed on my sidebar. In order to finish out some of my projects I am going to need to leave my laptop OFF and keep painting and digging even after sunset.

Since I quit smoking and started dieting I find I have a little more money than I planned; as a reward to myself, I paid cash for a brand new, made in the USA, Toro Timecutter Z4200 Zero Turn riding mower. It took HOURS off my weekly mowing. I have a small yard but over many years I planted more than a hundred trees and shrubs that create quite an obstacle course; the 21’’ push mower just was too much work for my old knees to handle. The new zero turn rider with the 42’’ mower deck zips through the job in less than two hours. Simply AWESOME, it gives me far more time to work on other things.

I am hoping I can spend more time online beginning in October or so. I am looking forward to reading my favorite bloggers again soon.

Greetings from Texas,
I greet the end of summer with mixed feelings. My wife, Helene, suffers greatly in the heat. I, on the other hand, am miserable in cold weather. To me, an icicle hanging off a building I am living in is one of the ugliest sights in nature.
But that's me. Both hot and cold weather pass in time, you just have to wait them out.
