More packing and shopping. Ugh.
I saw a Panoz Roadster today. Haven't seen one of those in a long time.

It's like modding or hypermiling. There's no such thing as perfection, just a best so far.

We bought a house on Friday.
The sellers hadn't mowed the lawn in, oh, maybe 6 weeks?
The grass was 18" high.
I did get a sweet Husqvarna ride on mower with the house. It took almost 4 hours to mow the lawn. And then I burned up all the branches from the two trees that had fallen a month earlier.
And cleaning. And painting. And drinking beer. And cleaning. And packing.
Gosh.

Finding a defensive driving class to get my ticket dismissed. Only my second ticket in 13 years of driving!

Just solved the midrange/under load miss in the Echo
Need to swing by tenant's abandoned house and mow again
