    I cut some grass today along a busy interstate. It was more of a clean up than it was mowing. Hotel I maintain wanted everything perfect because the big wigs were coming to town. i just put the grass catcher on the WB and went to town. I even used the edger to make things look "crisp". I'll bet everyone that dove by thought I was nuts but it sure did feel good to get out and mow. I just hate the feeling you get when you know that people are watching - especially this time of year.

    Did it have the "fresh cut" smell?

    I know what you mean. I got some strange looks the other day while pulling a trailer full of mowers with snow on the ground. I just smile.:)

    Yeah I do a lot of stuff that I know looks crazy.

    I once used my line trimmer to blow off a front porch cause Pedro and Antonio were using both blowers.

    Here I was weed eating a concrete patio to most people that were watching.

    O well I have little ingenious short cuts and things that I think of even if they look kinda ********.

    Everyone around here has been mowing lately! Some of my yards are approaching 4+ inches. Unusual though for this time of the year.

    The funny thing was that the grass wasn't really tall enough to cut. Sure I hit some blades of grass but it was it was mostly sucking up what little leaves were on the ground and the little bit of trash. I did get that fresh cut grass smell a couple times (the smell of money).
