No, I’m not talking about any of the entirely too many occasions for mandatory gift giving.  I’m talking about the *fun* time of having to mow the lawn.

Mowing the lawn is something I’ve come to hate doing.  The biggest reason is that because my lawn mower “retired” (meaning it doesn’t work anymore) a few years ago, all I have to do the job with is a Weed Eater Featherlite.

This is a handy tool for doing trimming work and it *CAN* be used to mow the lawn with but it’s a LOT more work to do so.  Given that my health and endurance isn’t even close to what it used to be this means that I am up to doing about 20 minutes worth or so per day.

Doing the lawn in such small bursts means that until the weather gets dry enough that the growth rate of the grass slows down considerably, I’m going to have a hell of a time staying caught up with it.  Usually I’ll finish just in time to start over again.

Too bad there’s not much chance of me being able to afford a hundred and fifty bucks for a new lawnmower.  I’d love to have one.  It would mean actually being able to get the job done in two days instead of about eight.
