Instead of inventing a robot lawn mower wouldn’t it be better to modify grass so it would only grow to 2.5 – 3.0 inches?

I know if I would just splurge and limit myself to 2 or 3 colors, I could probably save a lot of sorting time.




Now, why is that funny to me? Here's why.

Every 2 years, right after Christmas when stuff is on sale, I do a purge and replace, alternating years of replacing socks and underwear. I buy 24 pairs of IDENTICAL thick white sweat socks (Lanesboro - gray bottoms and white tops) and 6 pairs of black. And I throw all the old ones away. Then on the alternate year, 24 pairs of underwear (Fruit of the Loom, always colored - never white), again throwing the old ones away. By then the elastic is stretched and they suck anyway.

So I limit myself to black and white, and I rarely wear black socks because diabetics should always wear thick, absorbent socks.

It's a bachelor thing. I can get away with doing laundry every 3rd week. 2 loads and I'm done. It also helps when dressing in the morning. Any 2 white socks I grab make a pair. Yeah. That's the reason. NOT because I am anal about such things.

Goats also make for great Jamaican BBQ.


Curry Goat.


mmmmm


How's that for all-natural organic food?


Turn that inedible lawn into a feast.


And don't forget to set up as many outdoor speakers and amps as you can, turn 'em up all the way and play the same song over and over and over and over while de goat is on de grill. Jamaica, mon.
