@phendrick@shahnm How old do you have to be to appreciate the fine art of stoogery? My father introduced his Gen X kids to them when we were very young, probably from birth, & I’m still a spring chicken. Oops, i just aged myself even more!
My old next door neighbor got really mad at me for never cutting my grass. So she got the neighbor on the other side, who did hers, to do mine. She’s since moved away. He still cuts my grass, in addition to the lawn between us, two on either end, and one across the street.
He won’t let us pay him. His wife says it’s nice how it gets him out of the house!
@hchavers@pmarin@shahnm Oh, I was just appreciating the pun, I’m a big believer in xeriscaping, & not just where it’s necessary. I’ve always hated the obsession in this country with the perfect lawn & all the destructive methods that are necessary to establish them & keep them up.
Before I downsized,it was shorts and sandals on a big ass Wheelhorse. I rigged it with an umbrella,cooler,and a holster for two cans of insect fogger (for the shady bushy part),cranked up my walkman and went for fifth gear. It was actually quite enjoyable. Now it’s look out the window and watch the landscapers sweat. Also somewhat enjoyable.
