August already, a really wet year. The garden was a challenge. Nothing wanted to grow and the creeping myrtle turned into frank-en-weed, covering everything. Potatoes look good and the salvia put on a good show.
My wife bought me a new toy, a new zero turn mower, a really great machine. It does an excellent job and is quick. I don't have to make the 3 point turns or loop back like I did with the old mower. It did burn out a blade bearing but that was replaced under warranty. Took 2 weeks though.
Found the 1835 Roll of Pensioners produced by Congress, online and free thanks to Google. The information obtained is posted on my site in the Revolution & 1812 section. Also found there are my lists for Revolutionary war veterans buried in Lewis and St. Lawrence counties.
