naw, I am a lifer. I am happy here and never been anywhere else that has drawn me to want to stay there.
folks talk about where they would go and what they would do if they won the lottery .
I am already there and already doing it!

We all end up with nothing.

I'm in my 8th decade in Michigan and it took me this long to get things the way I like them in my current location.

Too much stuff to move anyway. But, I enjoy other places and am always interested how others cope with their environments.

Got back from our fishing trip and went to my project house to see the progress on a tree stump removal by a contractor. I only paid for the removal and no cleanup or repair. What a mess! Was ready to head over there before the heat sets in but rain is on the move to us. Guess I'll have a wet heap of dirt and chips to remove later, 'cause I'm not going now.

Heat and humidity return this weekend with temps around 90 degrees.

I don't blame you .some things will keep .
was 102 here yesterday . when I got off work I decided to mow my grass. while doing it I was thinking what a fool thing it was to be out mowing when it's 100 but I wanted to get it done because trash pickup is today

Haven't been mowing much, we are blessed with the dew every day as most places have none, people drive down our road wondering how everything is so green while where they are from everything is burnt and water restrictions in place.

anyone ever use one of those string mowers?

I have been thinking of buying a DR power pro xl.
getting tired of weed eating my tree line. only tall grass, weeds and very light brush maybe as big as 1/4 inch diameter . probly smaller but just a wee to much for the hand gas trimmers. hand trimmer will do it but it goes through lots of string and is pretty hard on the shaft drives. terrain is flat but pretty uneven and somewhat rocky. to rocky for regular mower

No doubt, those DRs are good machines. Neighbor has one that I've used a few times but it has a blade - probably not what you want; however, he also has a DR chipper. All heavy duty. So, if you find a DR trimmer that fits your budget, you won't be disappointed in the quality.

I use an attachment for my Stihl line trimmer. The straight-shaft models are adaptable to many quality attachments. The Stihl name is Kombi Tool. My neighbor and I split the cost of a sickle bar attachment that cuts up to an inch of branches, cuts tall grass, and does it in 24-inch paths. Fully adjustable to angles of cut. It was $250 and I'm glad we have this thing. I can easily trim trails, bushes and branches while I walk the trails.

Bought my second wheeled string mower this year as supply was 0 through covid last year, its a cub cadet and takes the heaviest string they make, top notch for sure as we checked out other reviews from other machines, haven't used my 2 stihl string mowers since. Was down to one leg in 2014 and bought it as Cindy couldn't handle the commercial hand helds, usually 12 hr's to do my place , now 1/4 the time and less string.

finally starting to cool down a bit . looking at high 80s to low 90s for next ten days and even a small chance of getting some much needed rain this weekend. last few years we haven't had many plus 100 days in august . sure hope that trend holds!!!!!!!!!!!

regardless ,I believe the worst of the summer heat is now past.
