I pass by this place a lot on my walks; it's someone's back yard, which butts up to the bike/walker's path I often wander down. Up until a couple of weeks ago, I had no idea that there was a yard in which small children, cars, and twin engine planes could be lost, but there were some stiff winds that blew the fence down, and they "fixed" to with chicken wire.

I don't mind natural landscaping, but this is a little too natural for even my tastes.

It should make the Spouse Thingy feel better about the odd times when our grass is about a half inch too long.

In other news, I'm trying to kick my fundraising into a higher gear (alone with my walking; I did 10.25 miles yesterday, tankeweveddymuch) and have upped the You-Want-This ante.

Thanks to a generous friend, if you donate to my Susan G. Komen 3 Day Walk for the Cure fund, you have a chance to win (among other things) a Kindle e-reader.

Yep...a brand new, unregistered, very spiffy Amazon Kindle. Valued at $250.

Jump on over to A Wabbit Walking or Rocking the Pink for the details, and to see the other nifty prizes.

My goal for this walk is to raise $2300; I'm not quite halfway there, and I really would like to be by the end of July. The training for the walk is coming along nicely--I'm hitting the distances I need to and I haven't croaked--but I haven't gotten to the super-mileage days yet.

They're coming...
