    Yeah I looked on the ol' craigslist. I have enough toys with 7 bicycles, wanting a boat, maybe wanting a second vehicle...The only thing I know I don't want is a snowmobile. They're fun, but very dedicated single-use machines.

    Yeah, don't believe everything you read on the interwebs :D

    I'll consider composting too. I bag my lawn clippings which adds a lot of time on a 1/3 acre with a push mower, so I might try not bagging them this year. after the first few mows.

    I hate geese, but none around my neighborhood. I'll probably keep to mowing every 1 or 2 weeks same as before. Was probably going to end up with the white.

    How is the Mint? Last I knew that shit was hard to contain and was really hearty against anything but straight round up or bleach.

    That's my hope. I spent last spring grubbing stumps and brush out of that section, rather than letting it grow back up into scrub again after the power company came through and knocked everything back from the lines. So I'm hoping that the plants will crowd out any new trees that try to establish themselves.

    Edit: 'Before' picture, courtesy of Google Maps:

    And after I'd done a lot of rock, stump, and brush removal. Then graded it more-or-less smooth, worked in some compost, and seeded it.

    Yup, I have no interest in a snowmobile. A friend just got a mid 90s Ski Doo 780 that he's overhauling and it's fun and scary fast (at least I think so--not sure in comparison to modern sleds), but I can't justify something that I can't use most of the year.

    I don’t have much of a front lawn as well. I rented for a half day . But you can get the most of it and a neighbors yard or something and split the cost...:notsure:

    My neighbors don't talk to me. Not because we're at war or anything, just down here near the city, people just don't talk to each other like they do out in the boonies. I could hardly tell you most of my neighbors names. The kids all run around in a few different groups or with their parents, not in big groups like we used to back in the day. It's a different place....Anyway, tangent, but I have a broadcast spreader, I'll just wing it with that for this year at least.

    I live in the boonies and I don't talk to 2 out of 3 of my neighbors. One's a complete moron & very white trash and I'd rather avoid conversation with him. The other's also very white trash but slightly brighter, but is also something of an illegal drug enthusiast and I'm not interested in getting too friendly with him.

    I’m fortunate to have great down to earth neighbors in a quiet neighborhood. I do get where you’re coming from

    We got maybe an inch here in E Bridgewater. No complaints...

    You probably were more patient than I would have been. Stupid people....



    What's the bicycle collection? I have quite a few as well

    Yes it is.
    Ironically, with the public/political pressure for security on Facebook, marketplace is cesspool for scammers

    Worth mentioning would be my motobecane fantom hard rail, giant defy 3 road but I might pitch that soon, Hoffman Bama custom bmx. I have a 70s motobecane road bike in there too and a hybrid I think they Call it like gravel mix now or some shit. So many different styles of bikes nowadays.

    The rating system irks me more than anything. I had a buyer pick a date and time. After waiting 20 minutes I messaged him and he said he was still on his way (he had been painful to deal with from Day 1) and I said peace out. I got a nice tirade of profanity and then dinged saying I wasn't punctual (wtf?).

    It's almost worse because it's your real name / info so I'm less likey to say something back in case some crazy decided to do something dumb. I'd much prefer it to be CL when I'm effectively anonymous and can tell someone to go run into something sharp if I'm over dealing with them.

    Mostly BMX, I have a 1986 Schwinn Predator Freeform EX as my favorite. 1990s Diamond Back mountain bike, a 1970s banana seat bike, and a new beach cruiser are the only ones that aren't. Any pics of the Hoff?

    You'd like to think by that token someone would be less of a douche knowing that it's their real name as well..but people suck

    Based upon my quick Googling it appears my first bike was a 1986 Schwinn Predator Gremlin 16". I loved that little bike. I had blue tires on it for a bit.
