Time to mow the lawn.

Well that annual war of the lawn started tonight. For the first time this year I mowed my lawn. Yea, I know itís may already, but dammit! I hate mowing my lawn! I pressed Boopie into service this year. Since our grass was about a foot long, and Iím not kidding, it was probably closer to 11 inches, but it was damn long, I couldnít use the bagging attachment. Well I guess I could have, but why when Iíd have to stop and empty it ever ten feet. Instead I converted it to the mulching mode and let Boopie rake up whatever I didnít mulch. That would be a lot if you really wanted to know.

I think it might be because itís early in the season, but there were no wild animals waiting in ambush in the grass. But I did discover a couple of things. Like there is some kind of animal that has burrowed into my front yard. Iím not sure what it is yet, but itís not going to be around for long. Secondly, I found out that those plastic soft-air BBs from the guns I bought Boopie for Christmas hurt like the dickens when they fly out of a mower and hit you in the leg. I may have to re-think how I set up the shooting trap for that. Obviously they arenít all staying inside the one I have now.

Hopefully the rain holds off so I donít have to mow again next week.

I cheated... I paid my cousin to cut the lawn. It won't be too long, and I'll cut it down to the ground for the summer.

Oh, don't worry, you WILL have to mow the lawn again next week!
That's not a suggestion :)
