I hate mowing the lawn. And, I especially hate mowing around trees. We had an electric mower with a long extension cord that I have cut (the cord) with the blade on many an occasion (and repaired). Colleen had that pitiful look women/wives get in the big box store – we bought a battery operated mower. Darn!! I was waiting for her to screech and complain as the cord twisted around the trees. Nope! She got out of it with a bit of crafty maneuvering. I’m a big softie. Yeah, no one dresses up to do yard work. I can only toss in a couple flowers to note that the garden is looking good.
