Lawn is out of Control

You can tell by my lawn I like writing more than I like mowing. It looks more like a wheat field than a lawn. To say the least – it’s out of control.

Lawn Needs Mowing

It started to get out of hand when it was raining everyday. That was a week ago. So now after a week of constant rain and a week of sunshine it’s tall enough we may lose our dogs and they weigh 175 between the two of them. So they are not exactly small.

So yesterday when I thought I had an hour or more to quick mow, at least the front yard, to keep the neighbors from staring disapprovingly, I got a surprise. My mower battery was dead. I would like to tell you it was because I left the CD player on but that can’t be it because my wife won’t buy me a CD player for my mower. I am guessing the battery is just getting old like me and not holding a charge like we used to.

Lucky for the mower battery it can be recharged. Not so with me. I gave up coffee which was my charger for 35 years. Now I have to rely on the energy reserve of a 53 year old man. Which some days doesn’t produce enough energy to light a firefly.

The battery has been on the charger over night and its raring to go. Ready to get out there and power the mower.


I slept my usual fours hours and I am less than ready to go. In fact I am hoping I don’t dose off while mowing and become mulch.

But if I do at least I won’t have to finish the lawn!
