I HATE MOWING GRASS…

June 28th, 2015

The mowing of lawns is the most worthless task I can think of. If not for concern that my neighbors would complain to me, or the city, about my waist-high grass, I would never mow. I’m not running a golf course here. Except to clear small areas—like the area around our picnic table and fire […]
