        Sob learned new family history today. Check this out. We were going thru stuff when my grandfather today, found a sealed, Johnny Cougar Mellencamp album, autographed with a personalized thank you note for being “rock in babysitters”. Apparently my grandmother and her mom used to baby sit for Johnny and his younger sister was back when.

          Looks good. Hopefully that bush survives after being cut back that far.

            They called it "The Green Sardine" It had green laced painted panels on the side that looked like fish scales.
            It ran 11.70's in the 1/4

              Those shrubs are pretty much indestructible. When we first moved in, I cut them all down to 10” tall stumps with no leaves or branches and they came right back. They had been poorly trimmed for years and the only thing I could do was to try to get them to start over and shape them properly from there.

                                  82 degrees and mowing grass. had to cut front yard again, it was looking ragged. Much better now. Finished off the back 9 finally. Some of it was a foot high.
