4. Yes, I do have certain neighbors who'd benefit by seeing me with a scythe!

I'd love to switch to meadow mode but need to think it over awhile first because I have dogs, and they're harder on flowers than grass.

And I'm afraid there are no men around here who'd mow w/o $, and if they did they'd expect more than a meal. Because it's such a rabid teabagger area - boy, I can sure pick a retirement spot, can't I? - I'm lucky I can even hire one to mow. When an ancient oak rotted at the base and threatened to fall over on the house, one of the area's main tree trimmers refused the work expressly because of my politics - which I don't discuss at all hardly ever unless I'm cornered, btw. That was an expensive job, too, as you can well imagine.

So I really want to figure out some way to sit and mow for myself because I don't know that I'll ever be able to afford a Yard Bug, no matter how much I like them.
