Living Beaverton - Your guide to everything Beaverton


It isn’t the size of the yard, it is how much you appreciate it!

This is a picture my wife received from one of her friends who is always chatting with the troops over in Iraq and they sent her this picture. It reminds me that it isn't the big things in life that matter. This soldier has obiously something that he is very proud of!

We all have yards and neighbors that we complain about and I know what his yard looks like and who his neigbors are and I don't think I will be complain anymore, I have it pretty good!

                 How much grass

This is great!  When you're in a place like that, you learn to appreciate the small pleasures in life!

Great picture, thanks for sharing it.  I don't think I can complain about my yard after seeing it!

How beautiful that little patch of green must be for that soldier.  Something as simple as a picture like that can put so much in perspective.

Thanks for sharing the photo, very clever idea, I wish my lawn was that small, it would be simple to mow it

That's pretty cool.  Now there is a guy that loves to take care of grass.  Hopefully he'll be home soon enough to take care of his own back home.  Thanks for sharing Todd.

It's the small things that make a home a home, and in this case home away from home!

Hi Todd,
Thank you for sharing that photo.  I wonder if his wife is taking care of a large yard at home.  These wives are left with a lot of responsibilities when their guys are away.  Silvia said is well.

Ray - I can't get my lawn here to grow like that and it isn't 135 degrees out.

Carol - Clearly this soldier has!

Dawn - I haven't complained about my yard since seeing this picture.

David - I think a mole would die of a heat stroke over there. (LOL)
