It's straight!

I’m really embarrassed to admit that the project to install a new flag pole, which we had planned for a weekend back in July, is only just now complete.  We, of course, have lots of excuses … it was too hot, digging up the old one was more work than anticipated, we had other things…

Starting yesterday afternoon, we had the first snowfall of the year, with about 3″ of accumulation.  It looks like a winter wonderland outside! Chad also used this as his opportunity to try out the new snow blower for our lawn tractor, which worked out pretty well.  We think we’re really going to like not having…

We thought there was probably a good chance we could make it through the fall and winter without a real need to mow or plow snow. Today, however, was another of those times when we…

Here are some pictures of our new John Deere X720 riding lawn mower that was delivered today: We selected the X720 model because it has the direct shaft drive mower deck as well as fuel injection, which we’re hoping will help with winter starting. So far, we’ve noticed that it runs smoothly and seems to…
