Around the Yard, and in the Rain
I took a few pictures yesterday. It was raining, but the azaleas were so pretty I had to get a few pictures. So today I will share some of these pictures…

For Sale
I have a lawnmower for sale. It’s a Snapper Tractor with a 14.5 HP engine, 38 inch cut. It has the mulching kit installed, and it has a de-thatcher that can be easily attached. It’s a one-owner, in excellent condition, and it has a new maintenance free battery. I’m asking $900. Why am I selling? Well… I traded my old pickup truck for a new lawnmower.

No more raking grass or leaves with this mower. The mulching kit does a great job. P1050293
It’s in great condition. Look at that seat. P1050292
Here’s the de-thatching kit attached. P1050294

Kevin sent me a note the other day, it said “You might be a redneck if you ever traded your pickup truck for a lawnmower.” That’s me!

Joke of the Day

A doctor examining a woman who had been rushed to the Emergency Room, took the husband aside, and said, 'I don't like the looks of your wife at all.' 'Me neither doc,' said the husband. 'But she's a great cook and really good with the kids.'


An old man goes to a Shaman to ask him if he can remove a curse he has been living with for the last 40 years. The Shaman says, 'Maybe, but you will have to tell me the exact words that were used to put the curse on you.' The old man says without hesitation, 'I now pronounce you man and wife.'
