... I just looked at my window and saw my uncle/neighbor mowing his yard for the first time this year.

Wish my neighbors would realise that it's officially "summer".

I just saw my neighbor out for the first time this year too. The disturbing thing is that we live in a condo development. Our condo fee pays for groundskeeping crews to mow grass, prune trees, mulch, fertilize etc. but this guy has a lawn mower (no idea where he keeps it) and a strimmer and stuff to mow his garden. Last year he went to Home Depot and took a fistful of those wooden paint stirrers they give out and combined with some caution tape managed to rope off a section in front of his unit so others wouldn't walk on the grass. This was, however, a step up from the plastic kids garden chairs and string he previously employed. Honestly it's a little odd.

It's officially "summer" because:

...we took the hard top off the Jeep today.

kennedy, how about giving the man a hand, with a sawzall, some straight skis, and a bit of nylon webbing?

Cut the skis to paint-stirrer length, just so he warms to the idea?

The joy of living in the rural areas. There are times when our grass isn't mowed because I'm too busy to do so. Or when my neighbors mow, it's shirtless with a beer in hand while riding the nitro-modified mower while their houses sit on wheels.

Yeah i dont think i could live in anything close to a subdivision. I can go pee anywhere in my yard and not see my neighbors houses.

Our HOA is pretty laid back thankfully. They eventually talked to him about it I think mostly just because it looked stupid. I can understand having a little pride in the property and all but come on we live in a condo development therefore it's common property and the neighbors dogs are going to crap on it.

On the upswing though I finally got out for a ride yesterday but nothing at all strenuous. My wife was with me and the last time she rode a bike anything over a 10 speed was unheard of so 18 gears and twist grip shifting was an adventure in itself.

I can see the neighbor's house. I just don't care.

Roy - I now bestow on you an honorary WV citizens title for whizzing anywhere and not caring. To reach the crown jewel of them all, being a WV citizen you just need to whiz in the yard while holding a beer can and then shake someones hand all at the same time when they walk up to you.
