No you're probably bang on.

No you're probably bang on. By the time I was cutting the grass by myself it took me two hours with the riding mower and two more with the push mower, than whipper-snippering on top of that if dad felt it was necessary. So six working hours with just push mowers doesn't sound unreasonable. What was unreasonable were those fucking ditches!
I started referring to myself as "we" around the solo lawn cutting days. "Dave. We need to cut the grass this weekend. We also need to sweep the driveway. I also think we should do some weeding in the garden. And by 'we', I mean 'you'!"

God, and raking the pine

God, and raking the pine needles. Ugh. And remember pulling the grass out from under the fence? Also filed under Things I Hate.

I remember feeling slightly bad that you got stuck with the whole lawn, but mostly grateful I didn't have to do it anymore. Sucks to be the youngest!

And cutting the lawn even

And cutting the lawn even though it was completely brown and hadn't grown in weeks. Than hearing "you missed a spot"! Missed a spot?!! It's fucking dead!!!
