Riding around on my ... ah, mower ...

Think Time.

One of my favorite things to do is mow the lawn. I know that might sound strange, but I've enjoyed mowing since we lived in Kingsley, Mich., in the early '80s and had a large yard that needed mowing. We also built a baseball field there, so I was the groundskeeper. I kept my interest in mowing when we moved to Elk Rapids and then when I moved to Vestaburg. It's great think time. And a great time to jam out to tunes (if I remember my iPod!)

Maybe it goes all the way back to 1976 when I visited that old stadium in Detroit for the first time ... Nicely mowed grass and the "whiff" it gave off. Nothing like it. Then. Or now.
