Mower and More

  Big day today! Sue and I drove to Shelby to pick up my "new" lawnmower. It's been really well taken care of. This is such a great deal for me! lawnmower on a trailer

Then we went out to eat at the Brown Bear in Shelby. Brown Bear restaurant

This was what we elected to take home. We'd already eaten half! Good food. restaurant meal

We were parked right beside the Hart-Montague Rail Trail. We were stuffed and needed some exercise, and the doggies wanted a walk. Perfect! Hart Montague Rail Trail

Two happy little sniffers. We walked a total of four miles. Hart Montague Rail Trail

Best event of the walk? Spotting a rufous-sided towhee! rufous sided towhee rufous sided towhee

On the way home, I saw a northern harrier hawk too, but no picture. And on the way down, we took a peek at the Pere Marquette river flats because there were reports of a flock of migrating white pelicans. Pretty sure we saw one straggler. Great birding day, especially since I'm not a very good birder.

In other news: I had a meeting tonight. I didn't get any mowing done, because it was starting to sprinkle as soon as we made it back to my place, and then it actually started raining.

From the picture the mower looks like it's brand new. I bet I can guess what you'll be doing today if it's not raining.

It looks great! It's been taken care of extremely well.

Lulu: "Our Dada had a Simplicity lawn tractor back in New York! He says he still misses it!"
Charlee: "What would Dada do with a lawn tractor on this little yard?"
Chaplin: "He probably just wants to take it joyriding around the cul-de-sac."
