Mowing ~ Neko ~ Cherry Cheesecake

Good 33º frost on the barn roof morning. Clear sunny sky.

Yesterday .... I went out to get the weed sprayer hooked up to my riding lawnmower. Lawnmower has flat tire. Then I had to work on the big air compressor in the carport so I could fill the small hand carry air compressor and fill the tire.
What a chore! Got it working. Filled the tire. Hooked up the sprayer and it had two low tires. Filled them. Filled sprayer with water (25 gal) and it wouldn't work. DANG! Might be the fuse, but I can't open the place the fuse goes.

Took sprayer down to PJ and Dave's. He was working so left it so he can take a look at it. Came home and mowed for a couple of hours. Warm, 72º, so it really was nice. Got a lot done. Jason came up and weed-eated for 3 hours. He's coming back today.

Jason got the grass on the left of the road and I mowed on the right... you can see where I stopped...

I did earn my Fireman's Badge yesterday!!! I stopped back by PJ's to pick up the cat carrier (Bruise goes to see the vet today about something in one of his ears) and Neko, one of her cats, was stuck in a tree with his harness and the tether line was wrapped around a branch.
I did the 'cat rescue' thing!
Unhooked his tether and loosened it so she could climb down to where I could reach her and got her down .... all the while PJ was in the garage getting a ladder.
