I should hint more often

It pays to "hint" publicly on my blog! Remember Saturday morning I hinted to Grandpa about the broken limbs still hanging from the ash tree? Well, voila! Looky here!

That happened yesterday morning. Saturday it was such a gorgeous day out that I managed to get a lot of things done outside myself. I got all the little branches and twigs picked up, and I cleaned some dead stuff out of my flower beds. I also tried raking out the asparagus stalks, but I decided they weren't going to come out very easily, so I just left them for the time being because I was tired by then. At dinner yesterday, Grandpa and I were trying to figure out what would be the best way to get them out... mower, chainsaw, whatever! Later on, I looked out the window and there he was pulling them all out by hand!

The hard part is done. Now all I have to do is go haul them out of there. Yay! Thanks, Grandpa!!!!

Happy Birthday, too!!!

Now, about that lawnmower that needs an oil change, new blades, etc....... ;-)

I like the lawnmower hint.
And I know he already has it in mind.

That lawn is really starting to threaten. Maybe cooler temps will slow it a little.

Thanks, Dale. If you need me to hint anything to anybody, just let me know. ;)

I'm afraid the cooler temps are just going to make the mowing job colder. :( And how about those WINDS?!?! Ack!!
