1. Wanna come mow mine?
It's really small, won't take but a minute.

Of course, I just bought the house, and the lawn hasn't been mowed in a month or so...but still...

10. Done.
What's your poison? I REALLY don't want to deal with it tomorrow. I'm going to have to use the weedeater to get it down to manageable length, THEN cut it.

13. I like free beer the best, lol...
Normally I'm a Killian's drinker, but I've switched to Michelob Ultra, so I can keep my he-man physique well into my 90's.

15. Ack! I'll buy some Shiner Bock...
...if you're going to knock yourself out, at least have good beer as a payoff. Or maybe Dos Equis...I'm in that kind of mood today.

3. Hmm... naked?
Did you mow your lawn naked? And do it as a marathon mow for Breast Cancer or anything worthwhile?

9. No, but the shorts, shirt, and baseball hat I was wearing....
complimented my he-man physique quite nicely, I must say.

Ain't that a corker, I mowed mine too
...So are you a diagonal mower? Or a straight line person? :P

12. Straight line, with exceptions
I have a ton of trees that screws up my pattern, so I have to mow my yard in sections.

8. Did you remember to sweep the sidewalk...
and bag the clippings?

That's the worst part of lawn mowing.

14. Do you use those hand clippers or weed whack?
We had to trim the grass that bordered the sidewalk... what a pain in the butt that was. Wish mulch mowers were around when I was a kid. :-(

16. Just bought a new weed-eater
A Swedish brand, Susqvama. And it's not a weed-eater, it's a destroyer of worlds. It absolutely rocks!!! I honestly think I could take out the fire hydrant at the corner with this thing, but then my yard would flood and my dogs would have nothing to pee on.

17. Have You Ever Considered Replacing Some Of Your Lawn
Edited on Fri Jun-18-04 03:57 PM by cryingshame
with groundcover or plantings of shrubs?

We're doing that here to cut down on up-keep. :)

Oh, Post Script: Was actually thinking of you... I live very near the US Open and a lot of our guests this week are going to wathc them play! We even had extra free tickets.

18. Nope...never crossed my mind.
But I'm getting ready to move, and I might try that when I buy my new house.

But don't shrubs require as much upkeep as an accursed lawn?

21. I'm gonna concrete my lawn and paint it green
Just kidding, my italian friends from Brooklyn call this the "Bensonhurst Guinea Lawn." I'd never lose my lawn. I love how it looks after its been cut.
