She says it's a fad...
...my reel mower, she means. I think she's wrong. I love it! I admit it's a bit overboard, but when I was so agitated today, it really aided in relaxing to mow the front yard. And it took less than 1/2 hour. I'm think the whole of the yard around the parsonage is only 1 and 1/2 hour to do. The peaceful "click, click, click" as the mower shaves the lawn, the physical exertion of actually pushing it, and the fun of a beautifully cropped lawn - they all add up to a pleasurable experience. I'm rather determined to show Cindi wrong on this one. Not a passing fad, but a simple way to work off the anxieties of the day. And when I'm done, I wash it off with the hose and spray it with oil ready for the next clipping. She may think I'm nuts, but that's okay.
