I have not mentioned the lack of Hydro at Dupont due to someone's lack of attention to the bills... It is of so little concern to R that, although he did plug in the frig and freezer in the extension - which was still ok - and did get around to the bill but, in order to get the hydro back on he must be there. On weds, I suggested I would like to know before I left... So I went to my friends' music event - in upscale cottage country 2 hours away - with the intention of either going forward (3 hours) or coming back (2 hours). Still no word from R and &*() if I was going to ask again! I was prepared to do either.

About 2:30 Sat aft, in middle of the lawn concert... So I came back here! The music was worth the trip. It was interesting to see the area, and my friends. Glad to be back here.

Checked with a gardening friend re "lawn". She suggested white... clover which only grows to about 3 or 4 inches, stays green through a drought and the seed can be bought locally. Also the birdsfoot trefoil, yellow flowers which I have seen in Montreal on lawns. It is probably still warm enough there to plant this fall. I had frost on the windshield once last week.

Some of the alder was cut but the real need is what is on the edge of the beaver pond. The water made it more difficult and Stu suggested cutting after freeze up will be easier. Of course! He cleared some before he gave up. Semi-de-clutter!

Leslie talked about lawn mower problems so I was going to give them my almost new electric since I am not going to do that anymore. But she says other friends need it more so I texted Tammie that it is "in the kitchen". I brought it in from the back shed so it could dry off before getting in a car! I hope they come soon! Other stuff is in limbo as I try to figure out where it can best go.
