The joy of paying for Yard work

I grew up earning money mowing lawns. I worked my way through college and seminary on the building and grounds crew. I mowed the church lawns for the first two churches I served, so I mean it when I say it is great to get to the place where you can afford someone else to do it.

My Lawn service trimmed and blew the dead things and trimmed and it all looks delightful. It would have taken me a month of Saturdays to do badly what these guys do well.

Did you get to keep some of the wood? That's good stuff for cooking or just a pit fire on a cold desert night.

Mesquite burns great. I do have a fireplace, but I gave the wood to my Hispanic worker who sold it or gave it to people really needing heat.
