I'm relieved to be able to report that it was considerably warmer out this weekend. So warm and sunny, in fact, that I even managed to get a little bit sunburned yesterday, which, sunburned in April?! In upstate New York?!? I don't even understand this world anymore.
It was so warm that I decided to bring my buddy out of the garage:
Hello, NEWMAN. Ha.
I am pleased to report that after some initial hesitation, the mower started right up and ran just fine. Whew. (and to be fair, this particular lawn mower has never been a problem. It was the mower I had BEFORE this one that was a POS. I'm afraid that my current lawnmower is being unfairly maligned for actions of its predecessor.)
Little white flowers blooming in the woods:
The hunters continue their assault on any and all metal signs:
One of these trees is not like the others:
Do you see that? That tree in the middle, all bent over? At first I thought that it was being held down by another tree's branches or something, but no. THEN I thought that maybe the top end of the tree was somehow held down by ... something ... but when I checked it out, the tree was free to be upright; it just ... wasn't. Mystery!
The kitty cabana came out, and Pop-pop wasted NO time hopping on for a siesta:
Yep, it sure is the life, Sodapop.
