Sometimes I am in the mood to read something other than fiction. I find stories about adventurers very interesting.

Pop up thunderstorms, fleas, knocked down limbs from the storms, roaches and rodents that like air conditioning, flies by the grill, how an application of SeaHume and 15-00-15 made the grass so green, mosquitoes, and these mysterious brown areas in my yard seemed to dominate my conversations this week.
