Excuse me for a moment while I get all braggy and stuff. You see, I have lived in this house for a VERY long time, and last year I finally gave up and hired a lawn service. Over the years I have mutilated my yard with horrible mowing jobs and waiting weeks to mow because it was 102F outside and I was not going to go out and push that mower around for 90 minutes. I was good at getting the lawn treated (I hired it out) but I was horrible at mowing it.
So last year I decided to hire it out and the lawn was mowed on a regular basis at a consistent time no matter the weather or the time. Ralph, the owner of Cutters Lawn Care, is an old friend of ours and had started the lawn care company a few years earlier. He is full service and high quality. He is so good that several of my neighbors have him do the aerating, and one of them is also having him mow his lawn as well.
But enough of that, let's get to the bragging.
Now if I could just get the basement cleaned.
