I thought you were in Sharpsville?

Yes. A long and winding road.

Today I helped my dad by weedeating an old guy's lot in West Knox County. He's lived there since the '80s, I think.

I'm not sure how much land is there--a few acres, at least. It's quite a sight. He's got a rundown trailer that he lives in. Right next to it there's an uninhabitable, decomposing structure. Has some old junk scattered about elsewhere. A old barn-like thing across the way.

In recent years the exurban sprawl that I've referred to here earlier has quasi-surrounded him. In fact there's a boathouse in a bordering subdivision only a few dozen yards away from the skeletal remains of what used to be a boathouse on his lot. I'm sure the neighbours appreciate their view. :twitchy:

I have no idea what the land there is worth, but I'm pretty sure he could sell just part of it and have plenty of money to fix things up.

Nope.

People are weird.

Probably Seeds' fault.

Sharpsville has an airport?

Fun fact:
I hate the original, schmaltzy album version of Long and Winding Road that Phil Spector produced. This stripped down McCartney version is much better.

Too schmaltzy.

I'll have to check the schedule. A few years ago after a concert I went down to the finish line and saw the end of the road race. That venue was 1/2 mile closer, though.

Cycling is a boring spectator sport.

That's a bummer. Hopefully it was just a one-off thing.

I haven't watched them at all this year, but they have a long history of trying to keep it interesting for the fans.

Possibly. I don't think I will ever know why, but as long as it works fine now, I am not complaining.

Why are you weedeating his property?

Weird. Unless you got paid.
