Still Plugging Along

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.
