Larry would mow his yard at a turtle speed (perfection). The mower was so loud that I wondered if he kept it that way so he could hear it. Larry was a wonderful neighbor. I usually called him before I went over because he was so hard of hearing. We would meet in the middle of the street. Me with some new dish and him with a bag of my containers.
