« Part 110: Don't Trust A Word Part 111 of Extremely Average series Part 112: Tonight's blog and a bit more... »

Hello Lumberjocks,

Tonight’s post, on a scale of 1 to 37, is a solid 29. I am not sure if the woodworking community will care to read about my lawn adventure today, or agree that Lawn Care is the Evil twin of Woodworking, but I welcome the debate.

There is one other significant aspect to tonight’s blog. I have, to some small measure, tipped the scales a little bit away from my obvious cat bias, and included a really cute picture of Maggie, the neighbor’s dog. I am sure that the dog fanciers will appreciate it that I have become, albeit only slightly, less biased towards cats. Maggie is very friendly and I think she rocks.

Speaking of rocks, I prefer to grow rocks. They won’t die, don’t need water, or fertilizer, or pruning, won’t shed leaves, won’t invade into my other rocks, or poison kids, or dogs, or other rocks, won’t blow away during hurricanes, or wash away, or freeze, or shrivel in the heat, won’t crash into my house, or my car, they come in a variety of colors, shapes and sizes, and the special one, they can become your pet…

Don’t think of it as lawn care, think of it as your own water park ! All parks have nice green grass. Kids can run through the water sprinkler on a hot day. It will be great (Keep in mind “it is all fun and games till someone starts to bleed – then it is called SPORT”) Either way its a WIN -WIN situation. lol
ps. Good to hear you neglected reading INSTRUCTIONS ! I mean how exciting can the instructions be rolling out the hose !

that isn´t so bad after all
you just roll out to the other end and when it´s time
to move the sprinkler you just roll in 2-8 rounds depending
on how much you sprinkler cover
but remember you have to water min 1 inch
over the hole aria every time you do it
or ells the roods will be tooo short and the grass will
turn yellow in the summer very fast
that is rule nr. 1 when you water the garden
and remember when the grass is up you can always have workbench
out there to work on in the sun :—)
have a niice weeken Brian

I hadn’t considered growing rocks. That is a great idea, and if I fail at the grass I will call that Plan B.

I think I am going to get lucky with a couple of days of rain. So my first few days should be ok, meanig I can’t screw it up until early next week.
