No Mowing here, that is, it HASN'T been mowed !
I'll have to go down the street and see what's up with the lawn maintenance guys.. They've had a lot of trouble getting and keeping workers. ??? Nobody wants to work !! too lazy, would rather stay home at Mommy and Daddy's than grow a pair and set out in the real world and work.. When I was 18 [40+years ago] I couldn't wait to get out of the house and on my own..
So my grass is way over ankle deep, if I have to, I'll put the mower deck back under my JD 870 and mow it myself.. but I have SO MANY other things on my 'list' to work on..
I was gone last week, first, before Labor day weekend, I jumpseated into JFK to do some admin stuff, then jumpseated up to Boston, got picked up by my buddy from Newburyport,, I spent 5 long days getting the engine/trans/overdrive back into his '25 PierceArrow.. My buddy has a neuro-muscular disease that robs his strength and balance, so he needed the help. I wanted to make sure he gets his car together and he drives it before his condition gets worse and he can't walk or drive anymore.. Hopefully that is several years away.. I see a Pierce Arrow with hand throttle and brake, auto trans in his future. [well, maybe not]
The car assembly went well, he has a lot of small stuff to reattach to the engine, but I believe it will be running in a week or so. His son is home for the summer from college, so he can help and is showing some interest in helping.. all good.
After Boston, I jumpseated down to Florida where my 86 ! year old Mother picked me up at the airport. I got her packed up, her home 'summerized' and we departed on Friday morning for Michigan.. 1400 miles.. ugh!! Saturday afternoon I got a call while driving: buy gas early, the prices are spiking!! What a rip off ! I bought gasoline for $3.26 and saw it for sale at $3.19, even in Tennessee it was only $3.29.. but the last I bought was in southern Ohio, and it was $3.67.. and within another hour driving north it was over $4.05... Gasoline was as much as .$0.10 MORE than Diesel
So Mom's van has about 1/2 a tank.. she won't drive much when here in MIchigan,, maybe we can wait out the pricing, and buy when the price drops back to something more reasonable..
Well this is the first morning back for 10 days, so the big dog keeps wanting to crawl in my lap and snuggle, I feel bad for our pets,, they dan't understand when we leave, that it's temporary..
Well, time to assess which item on 'the list' will get my attention first..
Have a great day..
