Unhappy Tuesday April 11 2017

It's the 11th of April here in Central NY and the long range forecast doesn't look good. We only got 135" of snow this year. Didn't even seem like that much here east of Syracuse. Just to the north of us in Redfield they got 350", ah paradise! Mrs. Stromr has relatives up there, can't get her to move. I went out to the shed today and took the covers off the snowblowers, gave them a once over just in case but I don't hold out much hope.
Stupid lawnmower gave me the "Hey, what about me" look, I told the dog to go peep on it, I hate mowing the lawn. Oh well, guess I'll start drinking early this year, I've got 6 maybe 7 months before it might snow again.
It's a sad day in Hooterville.

Hah, could have been worse. There's a member on this forum that bought a new HSS1332AATD and never had a chance to use it.

My mowers gave me the look too.

It is that time of year. Picked up some 12 12 12 organic fertilizer and a bag of dimension. Gonna be a bad year for weeds. The February warm up got things going early.

That is what I would love to do for the front yard. but I am almost positive that the BOZO'S that run this clown of a town. would put the kibosh on it in a NEW YORK MINUTE.:ba nghead:

Question

We had a family here who planted their whole front yard in flowers and the town cited them for who knows what and they had to rip them all up and plant grass, soooo.... you make the call

I love my big lawn..when my wife and I were house hunting 10 years ago a large yard was a must, the main reason? The bigger the yard, the further away the neighbors are! ( we are against neighbors just on general principal, because we arent a big fan of people.. but we have to have some neighbors just because: society.) There are suburban houses that are literally 10 feet apart..insanity..so we made sure the yard was fairly large..and I love my 1964 Wheel Horse:



And most of the time, I dont mind mowing the lawn..but I also agree with John Green:


But even though I agree, still, given the choice of "big yard" or "smaller yard but neighbors 10 feet away", i'll take the big yard...its the American way, and i'm grateful I have the option.
