well, mow me down

In Ohio in late November, 47 degrees is practically balmy so I donned a knit hat but left my coat unzipped as I took the dog out for his evening constitutional. Regardless of the weather, 6:00 pm Eastern Standard Time is dark, especially when the moon is obscured by clouds gathering to deliver a rain/snow mix in a few hours. That’s why I had my mini-flashlight handy to clean up after Roscoe.
And the darkness explains why my neighbor turned on his lawn mower’s headlights. I guess he thought he better mow his yard before the wintry mix arrives later tonight. Not me. I don’t care how relatively warm it is. I’m not mowing my dormant lawn in the dark.


Day 21. Thanks, neighbor, for giving me something to blog about.

  1. I’d be worried that I’d run over something in the dark with my mower, so I wouldn’t do it for a million bucks. But I don’t have a mower. Or a lawn to mow. So a moot point but I support your principles all the same 🙂


What do you have to say about that?
