More to mow is what you mean.

I'm tired of thinking about the mower. I'm going to drop the hammer tomorrow.

It'll green up, and grow a bit faster for sure.

I bought the Troybilt rear engine rider, www ...troybilt.com/equipment/troybilt/troy-bilt-tb30-neighborhood-rider-13a726jd066 but I bought the rebranded Craftsman one because that is what Lowes sells. They are identical mowers so far as I can tell with a different name.

Sadly it does. Claims to fit a Big Gulp sized cup.

Now I need to sell the old unit. Someone will get a few years of good service from it and they can always buy a new engine when this on finally dies.

Just got back from the Canada Day celebration and fireworks. What a perfect end to a amazing weekend!

I take it that is your mid-summer holiday similar to our 4th of July. All governments and religions seem to find an excuse for a holiday at about the same times of the year.

Did you take a short trip or just do the local celebration?

Yes, our holiday is similar to your 4th of July. Great time of year for both holidays.

Our holiday is promoted and coincides with a fairly large and well known local event. We can walk to the park where the festivities take place, although on fireworks night, many "out of towners" drive here and have a heck of a time trying to get out of town, what with all the local people walking home. On

Saturday there were food trucks, vendor tents, midway rides for kids. Sunday was a smaller extension of Saturday's offerings, and Sunday has even less events and offerings, but the beer tent was still full of patrons, the band and DJ music was still pounding on, the midway rides were still going, and the park was still full of kids and parents. I really look forward to this event as it signals "summer is here".

Being in a small town (but, ours is growing rather rapidly) has some advantages over a bigger city especially if you like "quieter" living and less concrete. That said, when I first moved here and went to the events with our kids, you'd meet a dozen people or more that you knew from town. These days, if I run into one person I know, I'm surprised. That's what you get with growth I guess.

The thing I love the most about living in a small town, is that you can drive 5 minutes or less, in any direction, and you are in the country side.

Well that sure describes the local events. Probably to be polite, the only thing you failed to mention was the over-flowing potable pottys.

Where we are now, we are much too far from the events to walk and the concrete makes my knee ache if I spend too much time on it.

In many ways I very much miss small town living. I moved from a small town to her in in 1970 and this was just a slightly overgrown small town. Now it is a mega-a-lopilis.

For the 4th I think I will just barbie some ribs and stay home.

Hope you had a great 4th, and the ribs were great!

Played golf today in the sweltering heat. Should have taken a cart, but decided to walk. Actually, shouldn't have played at all as I woke up with a sore back, and stupid me thought I should play anyhow. Regardless, it was still kind of fun anyway.

Oh my you are a gluten for punishment.

Of course I'm a fine one to talk. I was out in the heat of the day breaking in that new mower. Good thing I did as it lterally poured down for about 45 minutes about 5:30 and then rained lightly for hours.

A gluten for sure. It was brutal.

Today I just cut and trimmed the grass, watered some of the more needy plants (the hydrangeas were wilting) and looked at some potential rentals in Florida for Feb 2021.

I like AZ, but you never know about the weather - it was a real cool holiday this past January. I know - it can get cool in AZ (low 60s) and yes, low 60's is still a hell of a lot warmer than winters where I am. But Florida - even in a cool spell - is warmer than AZ's cool spells. So, we'll see what I can come up with.

Florida in the winter is full of migrating snow birds, old grey hair and unable to fly.

Anchorage sounded balmy yesterday. I think their high (90f) beat ours.

All joking aside Florida may be more consistent than AZ. Desert nights can be cold even in the summer.

If I drive to Florida from here, we'll save around $1200 off airfare tickets and car rental costs. The savings is something we can use to upgrade our property rental, or, even stay a bit longer. Hmmmmm.

3 and 4 years ago, AZ was warm in Jan and Feb. Last year they got some snow in Feb/March. Florida has my vote.

From here going south the roads are usually clear in early Jan. I'm not too sure about north of here.

Would you plan on stopping 2 nights on the road? From here, I can't hardly sit for the 13 hours to mid Florida anymore so from your general location I should think it would be 2 nights.

I doubt they fly to Canada but you should look at Alligent airlines to see if they have flights anywhere to you. We can often pickup direct flights to Tampa for less than the cost of gasoline.

I just lost all I typed (token expired). I'll try a shorter version...

Cost to fly down and back and rent a car for about a month would be around $3k.

Driving might cost me $1k. So if we both can hack three days in the car driving down, and 3 days driving back, I'd save some decent $.

For a month long stay that does not sound unbearable.

You have a lot of time to plan it so why not consider the adventure option at least on the way down. Figure an approx drive distance for a day and look for something to do when you stop. Sorta like the old Route 66 TV series.

Weather would be my only concern. Once you get over the Tenn. mountains you should have clear sailing the rest of the way.

Yep - will take a bit of planning, scheduling and flexibility due to weather.

Might be off line for a bit while travelling out west.

If I don't get online while away, take care - and stay dry!

Stating dry should not be a problem. The rains have stopped and the heat has set in nicely.

Have a safe and fun trip.
