Sierra Night

Lawnmower man

Ken (my across-the-street neighbor) is working on his lawn again.

Ken is an older retiree, and since retiring, his lawn has become his life. He rakes leaves. He digs up grass and rakes the earth for days, then lays new sod. He plants seed. He mows it 2 or 3 times a week. That lawn is his purpose for being, it seems.

He's out there right now, pacing back and forth on the grass and spraying it with stuff out of a little bottle--Lord only knows what.

I want to make a screensaver of Ken perpetually working on his lawn.
