The Tractor

Tractor sprinkler

Got in late last night but still had enough left in the tank to watch the Spurs go up 3-0 in the series with the Suns. It makes for a nice welcome home. We also had a good storm with lightening and thunder. I love a good storm. The yard looks amazing and I enjoyed checking on things today. The garden is coming along fine; the tomatoes grew about 5-6 inches in my absence, it seems. They look wonderful.

The lawn also looks great; Mark had gotten the mower out. When it's dry, we like to use this sprinkler. You put it on a long, long hose and it does a great job pulling itself along the hose and it covers a pretty big area without you having to go out and move it here and there. Who needs an expensive sprinkler system. This classic, heavy-duty (and plain ol' heavy in general) tractor costs about $50 and will last for a very, very long time.

It is really a classic. We had something like that when I was young. Though I remember it as being more bulky.
