“What does work smell like?”

There is nothing like working on your own lawn mower for an hour or two, changing the oil, the gas, the sparkplug, etc. and finding the strength to pull the cord “one more time.”

After all that changing and cleaning, she fired right up on the first pull. I still had to cut the grass; it was my son’s birthday, so I gave him the day off.

After I was finished, I looked up into the trees, on top of the house and even behind the bushes.

Marlin Perkins was not there to tell the world what a fine job I had done.

I woke up from my nap in my Daddy chair, gagging on the towel I had soaked in Witch Hazel.

Witch Hazel is good stuff. My Papa (grandfather) sprayed Lysol on everything; I just rub Witch Hazel on it. It doesn’t smell as good as Aqua Velva, but it smells better than Lysol.
