This is WLHA self-appointed editorial director Grumpy Old Dan Smith and here’s what makes me grumpy: Competitive lawn care. We all look forward to warm weather here in the Deep North. But why does nice warm weather turn us into landscape architects? Aren’t we supposed to be playing golf, floating our boats and hiking in the woods? Instead I see my neighbors behaving like share-croppers growing grass, cutting grass, putting stuff on grass so it keeps growing and you keep mowing and the dogs keep doing what they do on lawns. My neighbors look at my lawn, mutter something and shoot me that you need to step up your lawn care game, pal stare. So, I’ll once again cave to the crowd and at least try to do the minimum. Maybe next year, I’ll just dig it all up, lay some concrete down and paint it green. One conservation group admonishes us to live green, love green, think green. They don’t say anything about concrete. I’m Grumpy Old Dan Smith and you’re listening to WLHA, the Big 64.
