Nice one Clavin, good of you to move and help your old man.

I walked away from my job and had 6 months with my old man before he passed. One of the best decisions I ever made. In amongst all the crap were a lot of great moments.

That's cool to read 8)

Put out a couple of bird feeders in the backyard and my old man sits with his book of birds and try's to name them all :)

So I never thought I'd enjoy mowing the yard but we bought a Club Cadet tractor with a cup holder :)

Sitting with my dad last Sunday morning having breakfast. I had gotten him a chocolate chip muffin.


..I wasn't paying attention and when I turned to talk to him he was finishing eating the muffin, wrapper and all :o :-\ ;D

He has a tiny dog that only barks when there are deer in the yard. We have a bigger mutt that barks a lot which pisses him off.

He still has it though sometimes. I went to bring him his medicine the other day and said,
''Hey it you favorite child"  He looked behind me and said ''I don't see your brother or sister"  ;D ;D ;D

Me and a friend took my old man out to dinner last night.
Can make you laugh and cry.
He asks me''What do I usually order" tell him Penne ala vodka, he says "No, not to drink,what do I eat?''
Then there are two older ladies at the table next to us and they asked what we were eating because it looked good.
he talks to them for awhile then we get in my jeep to go home and he says "See those ladies checking me out"

It's simple, you just put the coffee and water in this and it's done.



What exactly did YOU do?

Will grab some beers and light the firepit this afternoon and get to work.

I have the same issue, but am lucky to have a 5 foot dropoff into the woods to dump them.

But am waiting, since if I do it now, tomorrow will look as if I did nothing...have to wait for most to fall.

I haven't bought the extra bagger yet so if I keep waiting for more to fall I'll have to stop every 5 feet to empty.
Luckily I have spots in the front and backyard to empty.

We put drainage in the backyard {never dried this year} so next year I'll put in a cup and flag a course employee gave me so I'll have a place to practice. Not going to try and do a putting green but I'll have a chipping area.
