Silence of the leaves
The leaves are back. I used the leaf sucker on them and mulched them, but they are back. Oh, you think they are pretty and innocent, rustling and wafting gently to the ground.
Bull pucky. They are little demons. Even now I can hear them falling, falling, each one screaming as they fall....they must be stopped.
It finally dawned on me. Leaves come from trees. Those of you who have been stopping by for awhile may remember my encounter with the curse of a couple of trees I had cut down two years ago. There was wood everywhere that I just couldn't get rid of. So maybe the leaves are part of that curse.
Damn you leaves, leaf me alone! I'll win. I'll keep leaf sucking until there isn't a single one of you left.
It's personal now.
