FALCON IN TREE
Sunday I stepped out and heard a loud distinct call- quickly dashed back in and grabbed my FZ35 and pushed it up to its max 18X optical zoom. Just a moment in the yard.

LAWN MOWER REPAIR
Got a referral from Ken in Lawn and Garden up at my Wal-mart- unofficially of course, we talk all the time- and called Bob to come fix my mower that was trying to rip my arm off rather than start. He was to show up between 9 and 12 on Saturday, today, and at 11:15, knocked on my door. By the time I got to it, he was pulling my mower (I had positioned it in plain site) over to his mobile shop- is that neat or what???- and about 20 minutes later he rolled it out and even from the porch I could see the easy pull he made to start it. I asked him what had been wrong and he started the list! LOL!
Anyway, changed the blade- which in this model is part of the flywheel, at least weight wise- changed the oil, adjusted the valves- they weren't opening enough for discharge, and thus were creating overly high compression- and changed the spark plug. If you take off the service call fee, comes to about 65, a pretty good price and a clearly quick and competent service man! We talked for a while after- probably blew his per hour average for the day, but turns out he was from Boston and we "talked shop" for quite a while. Good times.
And here is my little beauty, all ready to go at it again- as soon as I am.

GLUTEN FREE TREAT
Have had this a few times now and loving it. Found a new packaged "Steak Fajitas" prepared bits of steak at the new Walmart, and cook that up, heat up some corn tortillas, chops some bagged salad up fine, usually chop up the steak too, and spread the tortillas with hummus. It all works together exceptionally well.
