I need a self mowing lawn.

Well, I really need to do some yard work. Beside the dead squirrel that has been in my front yard for almost two weeks, it hasnít been mowed in almost three. Part of that has been because Iíve been out of town, the other has been that ever day I went to mow the lawn, the skies opened up and rained on me. Iím not fond of mowing in the rain. Itís supposed to rain of an on for the next three nights, and then Iím busy again. It looks like Iím just going to have to bite the bullet, go out and mow in the rain. Especially since that nomadic tribe of plains people have returned. I really wish I had some of my re-enacting buddies with me to help fight them off. Or give me beer. Oíwell, Iíll do what I have to do.

As for the Squirrel, well lets just say Iíve chosen to ignore it. What better way to keep the neighbors at bay then having a rotting animal carcass at the base of your driveway? Yea sure itís been there since about July 3, well at least thatís when I noticed it. With us being busy and gone, I just havenít put much thought into it. However with all the heat we had last week the thing has gone bloated and popped already. Itís pretty much just a furry fly covered skeleton that is getting ready to stand up and start walking the earth in search of squirrel brains. Iíve got to go pick it up tonight because itís in the way of the mower, and as much as I know it would make my neighbors all squeamish to see it, Iím not mulching a damned squirrel.

Solve the problem in 2 words riding tractor. No walking involved & enjoy a beer or 3 while mowing. Granted if you drink to many beers while mowing, the yard may have a zig-zaggy pattern but hey the grass isn't knee deep anymore !! Also in a few years clone will be mowing & kids have this magnet that draws them to a rider quicker than a push mower. Trust me I've been there and now one of them is running heavy equipment in the Marines.

If you lived in S. Fl the vultures would have taken care of it by now. When something dies in your yard, 100's swarm to the scene. You can always tell when something has died in someone's yard down here... it looks like frickin' Halloween.
