    Avoiding mowing the lawn, that is.

I didn't actually use the restrooms, I only stopped to stretch my legs, so, it was a quick walk through the welcome center. I checked out the nearby Vietnam Veterans Memorial too. Then The Drewsk and I got back in the car and headed on up to Burlington. Not many brochures but there were some hunting and fishing guides available.
    I imagine you and the family will be up for a moose hunt this Fall?

    As soon as the state of Vermont tells me I can stay in a hotel and I don't have to quarantine for 14 days, I plan to visit for real.

    Category 2: Jack Skellington from ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’ needs to be on there. Does Jack-Jack Parr from ‘The Incredibles’ count as a main character? Jack Swigert is a main character in ‘Apollo 13,’ yes? And isn’t Kurt Russell’s character in ‘Big Trouble in Little China’ Jack somethingorother?

    And Category 3 should seemingly include 'The Passion of the Christ.’ What about ‘Life of Brian’?

    Jack-Jack from The Incredibles was discussed and dismissed by the sons as not being a main character. Kurt Russell has to have played a 'Jack' at some point. I'll look up his page on imdb. And yes! Jack Skellington!

    Life of Brian - we did come up with that and I just forgot to list it. The Last Temptation of Christ could go on the list too.

    ’Alexander’ is another one.

    Hanna, not just a show on Amazon Prime.

    Still likely tracking south of us. I had planned on not mowing, but with the potential for multiple inches of rain, I am worried that the grass would be out of control by next weekend. And just like that, the first raindrops are falling.

    Shocking admission. I've never mowed a lawn or used a lawnmower. Growing up our house was on a hill and the riding mower tipped over injuring the rider. So my mother wouldn't let me mow the lawn. But she made up for it by having us do lots and lots of yardwork. I despised it for that reason, and haven't done much since. I don't really want to start now because I'm sure the backyard is full of dog turds. I despise stepping in dog turds for any reason to this day.

    I do feel I'm missing out on one of life's great pleasures. I pay someone to take care of our yard and get a good rate for once a week and once every couple weeks in winter. I guess it's worth it for me to have one less to-do on short summer weekends.

    So no clue on lawnmowers. But I wonder what is the best lawnmower beer for those of you who know? Budwom knows. I'm thinking a Burial Inner tube lager would taste fabulous after mowing the lawn on a hot day.

    This is mine:http://longtrail.com/beers/long-trail-ale%C2%AE

    Full bodied amber ale, but it must be in a bottle for the glug glug effect, just not the same out of a can.

    p.s. glad we've trained our dogs to poop off in the puckerbrush (off premeses)..no one enjoys The Order of The Brown Foot (especially wearing sneakers with elaborate soles)

    I have a little more than a quarter acre to mow. I use a battery powered mower that is self-propelled at the press of a button. Knowing what I know now, I would have skipped the self propelled feature because the lawnmower is a lot lighter than a gas powered one.

    I took advantage of a program from my utility company that reimbursed $50 of the mower cost if I went electric.

    That sounds like such a tasty, flavorful, and refreshing beer. Another reason to make sure I get up to Vermont one day.

    From beeradvocate:
    "Long Trail Ale is a full-bodied amber ale modeled after the “Alt-biers” of Düsseldorf, Germany. Our top fermenting yeast and cold finishing temperature result in a complex, yet clean, full flavor. Originally introduced in November of 1989, Long Trail Ale beer quickly became, and remains, the largest selling craft-brew in Vermont. It is a multiple medal winner at the Great American Beer Festival."

    we bought our house in 1990, so Long Trail Ale and I have been enhancing lawns together for 30 years now.
