It might explain my wife's unwillingness, then. Mind you, I have 3 females to
contend with, and, such a loss might be as devasting for the daughters as well,
which would entail much consoling on my part. Mmm...

Ahh, the handyman of the house... of course.

Sad Yerk. I know of such places where I work; I pity the groundsman, as he
struggles with a motorised pusher.

You are doubly blessed: the right equipment, and, the smarts to master the
task. I applaud you.

And, this is the same mathematical theorem expounded by that brilliant fellow
in the first Jurassic Park movie? ;-)


... Gotta go... the orderlies are about to check my room!
