I'm gearing up for that-the shoulder thing. My new yard is a WRECK. It's
got <br>running bamboo in which has got to GO, and English ivy which is
trying to <br>take over an oak in the back plus numerous other issues
with over grown <br>plants, including a Mimosa. I'm so looking forward
to "fixing" all of this. <br>I can't wait to get my hands on it! I close
