be careful what you wish for...

..i was just getting used to neutral shades the lawn had adopted, now with the gift of rain, i have to crank up the old noisey lawn mower--maybe it's time to rethink the idea of "power lawn "mower

yeah! i think the cycle has just about reached the turn-around point, what with 1/4 acre (or less) suburban "homesteaders" bopping around on a john deere riding mower--time for the ad folks to start pushing for a "return to the simplicity of the old days when saturday morning would find dad and son (now dad and son/daughter) out pushing the new sears reel mower around the yard of their newly purchased starter home"--retro's big now, witness chrysler and vw--maybe the concept of raking could be reawakened and suburbia could lay silent the 70db leaf blowers, maybe even toss them on the truck carting off the compacted cars to recycling

your icon, a cat-gargoyle? so cute.

and dave and i are also returning to the basics: handwashing dishes. le sigh.

..our dw died last march and with the kiddies off frolicking in college (daughter in portland, OR and son in new haven, CT, we figured, what the hell, who needs it and have returned to the lost art of hand dish washing

not having a dish drainer left over from days of old, i placed the bottom rack of the dead dw into service--tre sheik, no?--sits right up there on the counter next to the sink (where else?) proud as punch having a 2nd life for itself--after the washing, just roll the rack over (still has it's wheels) and sponge up the small wading pool underneath :)

cat gargoyle? i don't know--generic as far as i was concerned--it caught my eye 'cause it hangs over the entrance to the new haven athletic club (read: bar) which is across the street from son's new 3rd floor walkup (up and down, up and down--i helped with the move last week)
