#219 April 1, 2017 from
We have four large lots and I don't like to use the riding
mower because its tires always need air, its always out of
gas, its blades always need sharpening, and its battery is
always dead. It's slower to use the gasoline powered push
mower but it's an awful lot easier to get started and the
exercise is probably good for me. I just give myself four
days to get it all mowed, but we're having a wet Spring and
we've been busy with all sorts of things so I've had to
skip a few days. When I walked out the pick up the mail
(from our mailbox) today I noticed that the grass I
started on last week already needs mowing again and I still
haven't finished the first round. Bummer dude. Wet Springs
are good things for farmers and ranchers but not so good
for homeowners who hate to mow (sigh).

Here we go...

My friend Donnie Price only has one video on his youtube
channel but it's a good Western Swing tune.

This is a full-length movie about the backup singers who
were in so very many of the songs I grew up listening to.
I loved this movie and enjoyed getting to know these
wonderfully talented ladies who were previously unknown to
me. I have a host of new heroes to explore and learn about.

Apparently, one of the companies that accepts donated hair
to make wigs for cancer victims also charges them a great
deal of money for those wigs. I'm told that these folks
don't do that.

Another down-side of a wet Spring is a massive influx of
allergens. I've never actually taken the test, I've just
assumed I'm allergic to pretty much everything and the
evidence has tended to support that contention. So I'll
just sniffle and sneeze of into the sunset. yeehaw.

May you enjoy the best of love, luck, health and happiness.

See you next time.
