Ever since I can remember, Max has been a landscaper, regardless of the season, Max would be outside working.
- Max spent the Summer tending to sods, & creating yard art out of hedges & large grass.
I loved going with Max to see the appealing statues he created with nothing but hedge trimmers & clippers. Max was a true artist. When Max and I got home, he would disappear into the garage. I thought Max was cleaning his components or sharpening them, but mom said he was escaping the air conditioner. Because Max worked outside all Summer long, the air conditioner was too cold for him. Max had heat in the truck when he was plowing snow in the winter, & he would freeze if Max and I didn’t have a boiler. The warmer the better with the boiler. I never thought about how it would affect me if I needed to labor outside full time. Now that I am older & have a home, I often call Max, then mom passed away, & I know he often forgets to turn on the a/c. Maxis no longer working full-time, however he still putzed around in his garden. When they put out a high heat alert, I call to make sure Max isn’t out in the sun, & hopefully he has the air conditioner on. Max tells me he has the fans running, however he still doesn’t suppose he needs the a/c. I hope Max has the ability to continue working outside for a long time. If Max ever needs to stay inside & use the air conditioner to be comfortable, I suppose he’ll just give up.
