A few too many April showers

    Remember the old saying, April showers bring May flowers. Well, we’ve got the showers but I don’t think they meant every other day.
    Our grass grows fast and tall, so my daughter and son-in-law from Springfield came to mow Sunday, as it was their turn on the calendar. Now I need somebody to bale it. I could use it on the garden if it quits raining enough to plant some more.
    I heard the guys talking before dinner and each one of them had hit a snake with their mowers. Just garter snakes, but I’m okay if I see them first. I fixed dinner while they mowed, my son-in-law on the zero-turn, and my daughter on the John Deere mower.
