It's NOT ...
... a hoe, though I keep calling it that just because the English language is hysterical. It's a rake, it's new and it's fabulous :)
So I weeded half the veggie patch today, am halfway done with the first raised flowerbed and encountered someone who said he has a friend who is "Ericaesque" and could we be related? I assumed, based on the fact she's a friend, that "Ericaesque" is a good thing, but had to disappoint him: I have no blood relatives in Lawton.
It was still a little odd.
We might go out for a beer later but it's looking like a nice quiet evening, just the two of us :)
