My friends Lynn and Bob came yesterday and mowed for me. I 'paid' them with a couple of handknit scarves and a watchcap. The barter system still works sometimes, doesn't it? It's really nice to have the grass cut. It's been so dry that the grass is probably not growing much now. Maybe it won't need to be cut again for quite a while. It's raining a bit this morning, but probably won't be enough to make things grow too much.
My appointment with the surgeon has been changed to Friday, so I've got another day to wait to see what he says about my hip. I think it's healing OK, and I should be able to walk unassisted before long.
