    Lawn, that means "Gras", the hair of mother earth.

    Hm, are there easier ways to earn moeney as teenager today with less physical labor or labor at all?

    Rain and rain and rain. We'll get a clear day, then more rain. We're Houston muggy right now. I went outside this morning and had a grad school flashback.

    The yard has run amok. My lawn guy had cataract surgery. He's out of commission for a while. I've been trying to find someone who will pick up a couple mows. Everyone I've tried so far wants a contract for the lawn. What happened to teenagers trying to earn some money? When I was in high school, we were always scheming for a way to make some money - lawn mowing, raking, snow shoveling, babysitting, running errands, housecleaning....

    If I don't post again, the lawn got restless and took me out.

    Thanks to the blooming catawaba tree, the air around our house smells vanilla-ish. The flowers remind me of mini orchids. Since the drought was so bad for so long a few years ago we no longer have catawaba worms. The first time I ever saw them, I was scooping them up and feeding them to the chickens who thought they were in heaven. Hubby came home from work and about had a cow when he asked me what I was doing and I told him. Turns out, the worms make great fish bait. I think the long drought killed off the worms.

    We've been dealing with everything from a couple of days with near record highs, and a couple of mornings of near record lows. It was 90 one day, rain and storms came through, and it hit 50 the next morning.

    I don't know what way the Texan company laid out the circuits. You would normally have a circle cable separated in the middle and on both ends one transformer. If one transformer fails, you separate the defect transformer and close the cable in the middle. In this way except for a very short time, depends on the speed of the power switches in the cable circle, you may not notice. The PC without uninterruptible power supply will notice.

    There is a fleet of electric distribution company trucks outside -- two cherry pickers, a trailer full of cable, four pickup trucks and a flatbed with a transformer in front of my house. There are 5 or 6 guys in slickers having a discussion in my front yard. I have electricity, but I wonder for how long.

    Time does fly. I lost my dad in '81 and mom in '82. The last of their generation has been gone for a while now. I've got cousins pushing 90 and the youngest is probably late 40s or early 50s. We keep in touch on FB, but that's about it. We are spread out across the country from N.Y. to Cali. and places in between.

    Wohoo! The meal arrived. She liked almost all of it. One of the sandwiches was a caprese sandwich. She was't crazy about that. But the rest was good. She's not going to have to cook until Monday.

    This also seems to have broken down a barrier. I do not believe she has ever had delivery food. She really seem to like have a meal come to her house. I told her I would order something for her again when she wanted a break. I just wish she had let me do it when she had her cataract surgery in Jan. Her sister doesn't cook and mom groused about all the McDonalds they ate while she was recovering.

    Plus, my research may pay off. I found a BBQ place which will do custom meals for curbside pick up and mom passes it on her way home from church. Next event taken care of!

    A Jet update. Yesterday he showed up for breakfast wearing a crown of downy gray feathers and a big greasy slick that smelled like fresh flea spot on his back. The mockingbird corpse on the doormat explained the feathers.

    But, the flea spot is a bit of a mystery. I guess I need to go talk to the new family on the block, with the cat dishes outside. They might want to see his vet records before they re-vaccinate him, if they haven't done so already.

    There is still a kid inside us and ever so often it gets out. Maybe that is why our parents treat us like kids sometimes. I have found it does no good to ask my kids a question or try to give them advice.

    LOL, sometimes I think I am still in ym teen years when the bones tell me you are no longer that young.

    As for the line to retirement, they have pushed it forward many years ago but I think I wan't go until the end.

    Every time if there is something to repair in the house I think I ask dad for advice and I miss him. Same when using his tools for work. He was the much better craftsman than I am. I know what and how he did it but may hands are not his.

    If you were forces to live on a small Iceland, big enough to do a powwow dance, alone, what would you bring with you?
    There are off course fresh water and enough fruits to survive on your Iceland.
    And it's hot enough to not fresh at night.
    BUT no electricity, so sorry, you would...
