Elephant Love

I never tire of looking at pictures of baby elephants and their mothers. I just completed a big mowing job before this afternoon's predicted rain. I have a new system this year; I mow a little almost every day in sections until it's finished. I've divided my property into five distinct areas: front, back, middle, lower, and way back. I can't believe how expensive gas is this year -- the can that cost me $5.00 to fill last summer now costs $8.00. I can get two complete mowings from one can so it's not the end of the world but I've decided I'm not going to mow as frequently as I usually do. Have you made any changes this year? Have a great weekend. *

I have a little Toyota. A tank pf gas seems to last forever. In years past I could fill it for $10 - $15. Now it's between $25 and $30. We live about three miles from town so I have always combined errands. Not only do I get them done in one day but it also means just one trip to town. Now I'm even more cautious. Friends and I find ourselves saying, "Let's meet in the high school parking lot and take Sue's van." Or, "We're all taking the same class -- I'll swing by and pick you and you up on my way." Just little things like that.
