Oh by the way, folks,
Today we celebrate the birthday of Alexander the Great, born in 356 BC. His conquering campaign ended the Persian Period and began the Greek Period in ancient Near East history.
Yesterday got awful hot again. So I looked for something to do that involved playing in water.
So I took the blade off of Sir Isaac the Neuton (which I bought used from a friend a few weeks ago) and hosed the clogged-up old grass out of the underside. Then I put on one of the two spare (never been used) blades that came with it, because the old blade was seriously dull and even had a few rather large nicks, possibly from hitting rocks.
Today it probably won't be any cooler so I probably won't bother to try the mower out by actually mowing anything with it. Maybe I'll look into the possibility of sharpening the old blade, but I'm not sure there'd be much point to bothering, since I've got two unused blades anyhow.
And I've been wondering about how restaurant menus often state that a meal comes with two sides. Hey, if it's a square meal it oughta have four sides!
Happy Four Sided Meals!
