Lawnmower Man

I took my computer in about a week and a half ago, the computer that suffered badly from beach humidity and dust. They told me to come in last Wednesday and Wednesday told me to come in Friday ... so went in today and they said they need to take it to Guadalajara to check the mother board (tarjeta madre).

So I walked down to the auto repair to see if parts came in and they said they needed to try another place in Guad next week. So off to do some shopping - it went well.

Got home and decided it was time to mow the lawn and shortly ran out of gas. It must be time for an hour in the hammock.

Rested I looked all over for the gas cans that I must have left in Melaque - just give stuff away. Headed out to the local hardware stores and they were all closed around 3pm Saturday - and may not reopen. I ended up at the Pemex/OXXO, bought a gallon of water, dumped it out ... and finished the lawn. A productive day in Mexico

Now tell me this. Do Mexicans have lawns? Or did you needlessly import this labor intensive British upper-class invention to your retirement paradise?

I'm a renter and needed a yard for animals so the lawn came with the house.

Many of my neighbors don't have lawns or even much of a yard ... but overall lawns are not uncommon.

Since the rains have stopped I assume the weekly ritual will come to an end soon

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
