a mean green machine
Mary and I decided to get a riding mower. I have spent over a week going to sites on the internet for information on the different brands of lawn tractors. We also went to Sears, Loews, and Home Depot looking at tractors, asking questions, and sitting on them. We finally decided on this one because of its simplicity. A pretty green color. It is called Weed Eater One. Yep, made by the Weed Eater Company. I think that it is new on the market. We bought it on Saturday and it will be delivered to the house on Wednesday. I think that it will work just fine because the yard isn’t super big and there are no inclines or hills that it has to go up. However, there is lots of sugar sand and I hope that it will perform well in the sand because of the size of the tires. The self-propelled hand mower that we have would just sink into the sugar sand in the yard.
Today has been a busy day for both Mary and I with all kinds of odd jobs that needed to be done around the house. We were both tired at the end of the day but Mary still had enough energy left to make chicken wrap-ups for supper which is filet chicken breasts wrapped around dressing. Naturally it was good because what goes better than chicken and stuffing. She used toothpicks to hold the wraps together and baked them in the oven. Buttered whole kernel corn was on the side as well as buttered potato bread and fruit Jell-O with whip cream topping for dessert. I was stuffed by the end of the meal. Hope that your supper was as good. Have a good day and be happy. Lew
