Wow.  I don't have to tell you Michiganders how beautiful it was over the weekend, unless you were holed up in a cave.  If it didn't get into the 70's both days I'd be surprised.  One more Happy Mother's Day to one and all.  My girlfriend Debbie got to spend time with her daughters and I got to spend time in the yard, FINALLY.  We've got over 2 acres that sorely needed some attention.  I got the trusty John Deere out and mowed, trimmed, rested, watched Verlander get another NO HITTER, ate untold amounts of food, drank untold amounts of mmmmerlot, worked with Debbie on teaching her the finer points (the complicated ones) about her new Canon camera AND capped it off with a nice bonfire out back.

Me and the DEERE:

Deb has a penchant for flowers:

Here's a cool one she took of me at the fire:

She was very excited that her camera did such a good job with the moon:
