The 5:30 AM Yard Man

 In order to beat the heat today, I started mowing my back yard at 5:30 AM. There's no risk of waking the neighbors since they are ultra-early risers plus waiting for a more civilized time is to risk heat stroke. I'm probably the oldest guy on the block who is still mowing his own lawn and, for all I know, there may a running lottery on when I'll drop.

The advantage, of course, is that I get a little exercise in an activity that shows immediate results. Unlike so much in life where results can be invisible for years, a yard files an immediate report on how well you're doing.

That is to be sought and honored.
