Hell of a Guy

Spring is in the Air, and Other Stuff.


This is without doubt my favorite time of the year. Spring, a time of renewal, of rebirth.

The fruit trees are beginning to flower, the oaks and maples are showing a little green. Red Bud is full out. Love, too, is in the air. Wild turkeys are singing their “mating song,” as are the peepers (toads) and birds are joining in with their own, too. Soon it will be time to bring the rockers and plants to the porch. This is my time.

Spring also brings some drudge work. Mowing, for one. I have one mowing under my belt thus far, and about fifteen or so to go this season. I mow about eight acres, and that eight acres takes about five hours. I once figured it takes about as much time for me to mow as it would for me to drive to Cleveland or New York City. Such is the price I pay to live here on The Farm.

Just yesterday I tilled my garden space getting it ready for planting which is just days away now. My advancing age was evidenced by how miserably tired I was after just a few hours…so much so when I showered I was too tired to shave making me look a lot like Grizzly Adams. I do not have the stamina I once had. I certainly did not yesterday, though I can attribute some of that to the 91-degree temperature here that was quite unusual for May 3rd.

Today is “Take it Easy” day. My extensive schedule calls for me to sit in my favorite chair musing in idle thought, thinking of all those chores and tasks I need to get to, but, then, what’s the hurry?

And that is all I have to say about that…
