Orange Repairs

Today, Lisa had the Big Orange Van hauled up to her mechanic in Clackamas (near Portland) and talked to him about the repairs it needs. She also bought from him parts she needs to get the Little Orange Pickup running again. Very soon now, she needs to get the pickup up to the mechanic so he can do some work on it that Lisa doesn't have the facilities to do. Ideally, the mechanic might be able to get the BOV running by Friday, in which case Lisa could drive her pickup to Clackamas, collect the van, then a few days later drive the BOV back to Clackamas and tow the pickup back to Mehama. But things may not go quite as cleanly as that.

This evening, while Lisa was dealing with vehicles in Portland, I got out the push mower (it having not rained for two whole days, I figured I'd better strike before it started raining again) and trimmed back the path between the two sides of the property. I could only mow for about five minutes at a time before having to empty the bag. The grass grows high here, and it grows quickly this time of year.
