My lawn looks terrible!

When I was working and my wife commented on how much better some of the neighbor's yards looked so much better than ours, I told her those were retired guys who had time to keep their lawns up. Now that I am retired and she mentions the good looking lawns, I say those are retired guys who don't own an RV

Just tell her, if she doesn't like this lawn, let's see what the lawn will look like tomorrow at the next campground.

We are both retired. Lawn is looking pretty good for this early in the season.....and we have an RV...
However, I need to speak to someone about the definition of 'Retirement'

seems here lately I need to get a job so I can relax...good grief.....we are busier now that when we were working

I got the dandilions sprayed, the lawn mowed, and the drip system repaired. We are heading out for the hills within the next hour!

It's not retired, it's refocused!

Spread lots of grass and weed killer on your neighbors' lawns and your lawn will look much better to her.

Actually, she is as bad as I am. Last fall we were sitting on the front porch expecting sunshine and temps in the 70's and I said "It's a good day to get some yard work done." She said, "Or we could go camping!" We were packed up and gone in two hours. The yard work will always be there.

My kind of people. That's exactly why my yard looks terrible.
