Adventures in Lawnmowing, Season 2

Unlike last year, no grand pronouncements this Mother's Day.

No promotion. No engagement.

Just another day in the Munkee household.

It was, however, the season premiere of "Adventures in Lawnmowing," Season 2.

We are not yet prepared to mow lovely pictures into the lawn. The favored pattern remains the trapezoid. However, I can say this season is moving faster. And with less stalling of the engine. Not to mention that the only real casualties were a couple of those little utility line flags.

Not to mention the fact that, as one of the last on the block to get out and fire 'er up, we are no longer the disgrace of the neighborhood.

Sadly, I will say that Season 1's availability on DVD remains in doubt over rights issues. We couldn't get the baby bunny whose narrow escape - twice! - was the highlight of last season to sign a waiver.

We're considering a re-enactment. I'm thinking of getting Bruce Willis, but our budget may leave us with someone more along the lines of Ben Affleck.

Or the girl from House of 1000 Corpses.You know the one I mean.

Either way, happy Mother's Day to all you mothers out there. You know who you are, too.

Stay tuned for further adventures of Lawnmower Man (not that one) and his trusty Craftsman sidekick.
