Re: home : )/Amtrak/price to mow yard??


Strange as it may seem. Two reasons--there were areas that I hadn't gotten to yet, and you can plant stuff on top of a drainfield. Altogether, there was probably more lawn than there is here at my sister's house.

 We paid $60 per month in Florida--that was for weekly mowing/weed-

and trim palms and such at no extra charge. Just got bored, I guess.

Betsy,
wow... that is some story. I keep forgetting that it is going to
get cold in Springfield before we get back home.
I think I have hired a neighborhood boy, 15 years old, to mow, edge,
water and feed the cat while I am gone. Does anyone have any idea
what I should pay him? I am thinking hourly wages and more if he
uses his own mower and equipment. Does anyone pay to have their
yard mowed? I have 2 acres but tonight I timed my self on my zero
turn mower. It took me less than 2 hours to get it all mowed then I
went around to spray some round up and hauled off some branches that
I cut off this morning to the garbage cans. I was back in the house
in 2 1/2 hours and I did have one friend stop by for a garden tour
in the middle of my mowing.
He is a good kid, but he wants me to come up with what to pay him.
I want to be fair...

Hi Tricia,
I remember this room being a little cramped. It would not
sleep more
than two. The seats faced each other with window on one side and
wall/door
on the other. But you could lay down and not just recline like in a
coach
seat.
We did our return trip in January during an Alberta Clipper.
Almost every switch from Salt Lake to Chicago had to be beaten open
or
thawed due to the extreme cold. Also, in the Rockies, there were 66
avalanches that evening. One blocked the rail line and a freight
train had
to slam thru the snow from the east to west direction to clear the
rail for
the Amtrak to pass. We were sleeping thru all of this in our room.
The
steward said that the freight train almost hit the Amtrak and as
our train
went thru the gap, the snow was pressing on the train sides. Good
thing we
were asleep. We finally got to Chicago about 16 hours late. Such an
adventure.

Thank you, Betsy! Was the room good or worth the big difference
in price?
I want to try it... it sounds like a great way to see some of the
country.

Tricia,
I took Amtrak from Chicago to OAkland CA about 15 years ago
now. > Rode
coach on the way out with a stop over in Denver. It was great
fun and
had
wonder talks with folks sitting nextto me. The return trip was
in a
"room"
.

way to

I may check on the train for my next drive up. Has anyone ever
taken
Amtrak?

Not really, but they have an active
group. The office is on the state
fair grounds, I think. Springfield also
has a large garden club, and
is home to the Prairie State Orchid Society.

I just sent a note to the master gardener program here in

with a
project. Do you
know any MG's from here?
thank you, Tricia

Re: [CHAT] home : )

I'll be home
most of the time this fall - am sure we
can work out a
date. Springfield is
a little less than 2 hours directly
east and a
little south of Quincy.

will do my PT therapy for my rotator cuff, 6 weeks,

am here for the

fall. Will
you be home this fall? How far is
Springfield from you?

Thank you for the
information.
