Dorothy, I'm finding that my five-years-newer Pathfinder gets better mileage than the older one, but I have also realized that the body skin is almost completely made of plastic! It weighs less. I'm not sure if this is a good thing.

I bought a new mower earlier this year and with the back and the middle row of seats down I was able to fit the huge box in (well, the guy who works at Northern Tool and a nice man from the parking lot muscled it into the SUV. I can't say I participated in that one.) When I got it home I pulled the box open while it was in the SUV and pulled things out one at a time, the removed the box. Today my ex needs my assistance because he bought an electric mower that comes in a huge box and it won't fit in his Corolla, so we'll meet early this afternoon at the store and I'll transport it home for him.

The large area rug in the dining part of my den was flipped over and last night I used the rug shampooer on the canvas back of it. I'll have to re-glue some of the edging that was knocked loose (it's probably glued on anyway - I have fabric glue here) and let it dry for a couple of more days. I didn't do a "rinse" pass over that side and I'm still considering it. Once it's turned over I'll shampoo the nap side again and rinse that. I think it has more life in it.

There is a growing stack of donation items from the kitchen, things I look at every day but never use. I'll run that over to Goodwill later this week.
