The thing that a lot of folks don't understand, and what I get asked frequently, is how can you work in that heat? (When I'm doing my yard work and such.) The answer, to be honest, is I like it. I always have water available to stay hydrated and I cover my shaved head so it doesn't burn. When I'm outside mowing, its one of the times I am relatively pain free. I enjoy the sunny days and the sense of accomplishment I have when I'm done. I also tan fairly quickly and easily, so I don't worry about burning. I understand folks will continue to worry about me as I get older, but I like to think that I have enough sense to take breaks when I need it. In the last couple of years I have reduced the area that I mow from around 6 acres, to just under 3 acres. I make sure that my mom, mom-in-law, and DKW & I have nice yards and a walking path between our homes, but that's it.
Okay, I'll climb down off my soapbox now. Everyone have a great day.
