My Morning. And Mowing. And Flying.

How’s your morning going? Mine? Thanks for asking! I’ll tell you. Got up early to mow while Ron was in Bible study. It’s a beautiful morning to mow in North Texas. I was mowing the front pasture with my zero-turn mower. About two acres. I decided to mow the steep slope next to the driveway,…
