I sure do! But I spend about 5 months parked in my daughter's back yard. There are 4 adults living in that house and not one of them likes to be outside.

I get lots of dirt therapy in while I'm there. The house they bought a year ago had been vacant for 2 years. The flippers who bought it had a lawn service mow and keep the front yard looking ok, but the weeds had taken over the back yard.

I'll get there in May and plan to first level a spot in the back yard for my RV and then upgrade the landscaping. The house overlooks Lake Washington and the terrain is quite steep. I need to rig up a safety harness in a few places just so I can pull weeds.

The front part of the property (very steep and unused) is so overgrown with blackberries that we'll have to hire goats to come in to clear it. I thought I was being pranked until I actually looked into it. You can hire goats up there! They eat EVERYTHING, even the thorns!

Turn ALL of my post noises off.... do not disturb, unless you are my son or their wife...

I keep the sounds shut off on my iPad. Otherwise Lily barks every time it makes any sort of noise.

You are correct and it does have some lubricating properties but not like "other" brands. Guitar players (Sue take note) use it sprayed on a rag and then wipe down their guitar strings. The WD helps with the removal of "water' and applies a small lubricant.

With what Charlene needs to do there is o need for WD as here is no water to disperse. Just a mild lubricant is needed. Silicone or Dry Lube would be better suited.

Now, when we talk about WD-40, they do make a dry lube with PTFE so now when we say WD-40 it has much more to offer.

The boxes fit into a heated bay, where Martin hung 2 grow lamps for days when it's too cold for seedlings outside.

The pond in a bucket recirculates, so it keeps running, even when some of the water freezes.

Yes, I would miss it. Mowing, not so much.

PS: I get email notifications when someone posts to the forum. That does make a noise, but only during the day.

Maybe you could train your chickens to do the same, or play a piano or some other talent
Have you never heard the term "up with the Chickens"? Where there is chickens there will be a rooster! First light and he will let you know!

Is Tim going to get a rooster? He keeps talking chickens. There's roosters over near where Papa Steve is at, I hear them sometimes when I'm riding my bicycle around the area.

The chickens will need someone to tell them what to do, and being Tim will be the only one around so................

No Rooster!
I've had a couple people try to give me a rooster, don't plan on a rooster. They crow at first light, then all day long. No rooster!

I wrote the three steps to having happy chickens on the coop wall.

Eat, drink and lay eggs!
