ho hum...

Howdy,

It's been a busy week of nothing terribly exciting.

I made a very adult purchase on Tuesday.
I bought my first brand-spanking-new lawnmower.
I have a very big yard.

I figure mowing the lawn on Tuesday cost me about $325.
Mower: $259 + tax + oil + gas + super heavy duty bike lock.

My last crappy mower was stolen sometime between October 2005 and April 2006.
I spent last summer borrowing mowers.
My friend Maureen made a bet with her husband and the pay-off was mowing my yard. That's my kind of bet.


Okay, enough procrastinating, there is laundry to be done.
And dishes. And cleaning. And...
What the hell, I'm going to bed.

I've read all I had missed. YOU are a delightful writer.
Yeah the party pretty well did it. What a great way to break it off with a girl. Just have a party and keep it up until she drives by.
When the question was asked about you finding her attractive was asked...I was settling in for a long story. Oh well.
You know Nora, you could have at least made something up.

I have never heard anyone classify buying a lawn mower as an adult purchase. Now whenever I mow my yard the neighbors will wonder what I am laughing about.
