Damn. Should have mowed the yard on Sunday.


Spent most of the day on the couch, off my feet because of too much walking at the Carroll County Gun Show & Flea Market on Saturday.

Too much strain on the knees, hip and ankle. Should have known better. Now it’s raining…again.

Another soaking rain that we need so much but which also means the yard, already out of control, will have to wait.

More rain means more damage to the driveway.

Oh well, The PowerGrader is not due to arrive until next week.

Deeper ruts just means more challenge.

Rain aggravates the arthritis.

Even after two procedures to burn away the calcium, the ankle still stiffens, the knees still pop and the hip creaks.

But we need the rain.

That’s what I keep telling myself.

We need the rain.
