I hate mowing lawns, so I have a tiny yard. Still, I would rather get bit by a dog, get gangrene, then lose a leg than mow it. I never water my lawn because then it would grow, and I don't want it to grow. When I lived in on the west end of Phoenix and had 1/2 acre, I would let the neighbors graze their animals- so long as they were edible- in my yard. Unfortunately, one of my girl's kids would beat up a neighbor's kid and I'd get screwed out of some roasted goat.
The last time I mowed my yard was a week ago and I was hoping to get by another few days. Unfortunately, it has rained four days in a row; it is raining now. In general, I enjoy a good thunderstorm, but not when it creates work for me. I can hear the thunder rolling outside and I know it only means more rain.
