Mother (F-ing) Nature


Due to yesterday's untimely storm, we did not get grass. It was too "stormy" and "dangerous". Whatever. So, you get hit by some lightening. Maybe you will become super-smart like Jon Travolta in Phenomenon. That would be fun, right? No? Oh, OK.
So, the yard work mystery worker continues. At this point, it is either a ghost (who works in the day time) or someone scaled our 6 foot fence and raked the yard. My fear is that it is our neighborhood guy who does odd jobs (rake leaves, wash your car, mow your lawn) for money. If it is him, we need to have a little chat about what a "privacy" fence is. And, how "trespassing" lowers the fee for services. Though, it was kinda nice to come home to a clean and tidy lawn on our anniversary. I may have to set up surveillance back there. . .

Oh, the delightful sarcasm of it all. Perhaps you should install an electric fence to shock and sting the mystery worker.

Yes, we were considering installing barred wire along the top of the fence. Though some neighbors might view it as "unsightly".

Hmm...I suppose you would not want your compound to look like a prison yard. Tru dat.
