It looks like with all the folks who have volunteered to do a little mowing this summer, I might not even need a lawn service. So far I've gotten offers from:
Kelly and Diane
Francine and Craig
Eric Van Wie
Ray Schott (voluteered by his lovely wife)
I have a nice mower (brand new Troy-built shown at left) and a brand new electric trimmer. Both purchased in Sept 05 when we moved into our surburban home with yard. I'm sure I will have mowing help from my sister, uncle, and mom and dad possibly through the end of May. But maybe we could make a schedule for June, July, and August. Michael Ladenson and Jen Horner, thank you for looking into the cost of a lawn service for me. If we find a cheap deal, I may still take it and let these dear people off the hook.
