Flowers, some Kubota service and waking up the Packard Hawk

Posted By on May 11, 2021

This past Saturday was nice, but Sunday not so much (rain). It does seem like we are having unusually cool weather for this time of May? BrendaMothersDayFlowers210509

But 30-40 degree weather aside, Taylor did stop by to give me a hand with the pool cover since I don’t enjoy horsing it around by myself anymore as it is just too big and unwieldly to drag quickly off the top of the water without it getting super heavy and sinking to the bottom. Thankfully it came off without a hitch (no tearing this year) and it “might” make it one more season?

Since we waited until Saturday afternoon, I took advance of the cool morning to help out Katelyn and family in making sure her Mother’s Day flowers would show up in Brenda’s pharmacy last Sunday (Mother’s Day). It worked out great and was a big surprise and smile generator for Brenda. What a great idea Katelyn!

Sharpened both sets of blades now that I also have a semi-mulching set … although I’m not sure they really do all that much?
