Tuesday Tidbit: Mowing

Today was supposed to be mow the lawn day. We’ve had over 14 inches of rain in two weeks. Not complaining but it made the grass get as thick as hair on a barbershop floor. After living here for over 27 years we’re finally getting hair where there should be hair. *lol* I know, what an analogy. I must need a haircut. So, off I go on the our 17 year old zero turning radius and the stinker quit on me. Again. This is getting to be a habit.

When it stuttered while cutting twice, almost quitting, I quickly turned off the blades and high tailed to it’s usual station. Then it completely quit. Almost made it back to the stable though, ‘ey? Since I’m home alone at the moment, I’ll leave it where it is. Might get the shotgun out and put it out of my misery. 😜 Nah, I won’t do that. Steve is with his 92 year old Mom at the dentist. She’s getting a new bridge that she lost at the Nursing Home.

No, no, not that kind of bridge. Although, once we get the bill, it will probably be just a little less than this one cost. Dentists. Is there no other big rip-off than dental work other than eye glasses? Just sayin’. You’d think we were buying a real bridge! Oi! I hope they show mercy on us old folks on limited budgets. [feel free to laugh here]

On a happy note, at least my shoulder doesn’t ache anymore. And I was having stabbing pains in my left hand. I took a few ibuprofen 800mg at regular intervals, and God allowed the pain to heal. I give Him the glory. Plus, that’s good stuff. 😉

Tomorrow is our 42nd wedding anniversary. Not sure how we’re celebrating yet but you can be sure I’ll take pictures.

So, I hope y’all are having a cheap, happy, uneventful day. I’m going to go drown my sorrows in a cup ‘a New England Hazelnut Creme coffee. ☕☕ Maybe two. (>‿◠)✌ I wish y’all could join me.

  1. Oh, I hope the mower can be fixed. I’d hate for you to have to buy a new one for your anniversary!! Happy 42nd, btw. Congratulations! That is a real blessing and accomplishment in this day and age. We will celebrate our 52nd next week! So I guess we are about 10 years ahead of you in the blessings and accomplishments! LOL. Don’t know what we are going to do either. Hey, maybe we should join up somewhere in between?! That would be fun. We bought our tractor mower for my retirement present! I thought it was supposed to be for me, but I rarely get to ride it. Hubby decided since he was older he deserved to ride it. Oh well, just so it gets done, right? I am glad your shoulder and stabbing pains in your hand are gone. Praise God indeed! I had quite the session at PT today with shoulder and stabbing pains in my left hand too. Seems they are connected!! Maybe I need to just write my own post and quit taking up your space. LOL. But we have so much in common, it is uncanny! Have a blessed day, and a very Happy Anniversary tomorrow!! I hope you do something fun.

    1. Thank you Pamela. And Happy Pre-Anniversary to y’all! I wish we’d started together soon and were at 52 also. What a blessing.
      You always make me giggle (in a good way). Isn’t that something about both of us having left hand pains!? Odd, that. I would LOVE to have a tractor mower. That’s definitely beyond our means. Maybe that’s a good thing ’cause I’d be using it for bulldozer work, etc. and no telling what kind of trouble I’d get into … LOL
      Thanks for stopping by. ❤
      Blessings. xx


  2. Yes, ouch on the dental costs. Not nice or fun at all! HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!! May God bless you both with many more years together! Will look forward to those pictures!! xo

    1. We all suffer at their hands, don’t we!? $$cha-ching$$

      Blessings. xx


  3. I’m sorry about the mower!
    Happy Anniversary to you two.
    Dentists, eye doctors – and also hearing aides. We don’t need them yet, but I’m appalled at the cost of them, And no insurance is available for them. 😦

    1. Steve said he can fix the mower. Yay! He’s da man. lol
      Thank you for the anniversary wishes. ❤
      Oh, yeah, hearing aids! Quite right. I was trying to remember the third thing that’s grossly overpriced and no insurance. It’s all a scam, I swear.
      Blessings to you all. xx
