Rita: Funny Thing

On Saturday while breezes still blew it became obvious we dodged a bullet--all was a-ok. One thing struck me. Why weren't people out in my neighborhood cleaning up? Debris in the form of leaves, sticks, pine needles and some branches lay on everyones' lawns.

And then the neighbor answered for me on Sunday. Everyone (except us) has a lawn service. No one even owns lawn mowers, blowers, trimmers and weed wackers. Heh.

My friend made fun of us and called us "rich people wanna bes" 'cuz we have no lawn service. And I'm like dude, even if we had a lawn service we'd keep our lawn equipment. Jeez. While falling short in the do-it-yourself-work by good-ole-boy standards we are not total tools.
