Off Center Mowhawk

MERCI:  Okay, we can't not do this post.  The irony is too much.

TAYLOR:  If you remember, Jan worked herself half to death last week cutting some grass with shears and after the rest was mowed, hauling wet grass to the dog pen for mulch.

RUSTY:  Monday she went out to pick up poop in the dog pen, heard doors slamming, turned and -  Yep, you guessed it.  It was the jail work crew.

MERCI:  They zipped along with their mower and weed eaters, leveling everything on the curb side of the sidewalk.

TAYLOR:  The guys stared and weren't sure what to do when they reached the neighbor with the now hip-high-to-Jan grass. 

RUSTY:  This is what it looked like when they finished.  They cut the grass on both sides of the sidewalk, but they don't cut grass on private property, so the neighbor's lawn now has an off center mowhawk cut.

MERCI:  Just as Jan snapped the picture, a car with a choking exhaust problem passed.  (See the cloud on the left?)

TAYLOR:  She tried again after the "toxic cloud" evaporated.

MERCI:  We took her for a walk later and when she saw all that beautiful, healthy mulch-to-be, she wanted so badly to go get a container and steal ... I mean clean up the loose grass to add to our dog pen.

RUSTY:  She wants that mulch!  It's just going to waste.  She restrained herself.  Fortunately, last week's mulching pain is too fresh in her short memory.

MERCI:  We know we tease her a lot but today we comment her for showing restraint.

RUSTY:  After all, if she gets laid up again, who is going to feed us?

TAYLOR:  There's a church across the highway with a community soup kitchen.  Do you suppose they would deliver to starving furries?


  1. You guys need to be nicer to the woman who provides you with mulch and stuff.

  2. It sounds like she works super hard at providing that mulch too. So ease up guys. "Don't bite the hand that feeds you." I don't know what that means, but M says it all the time.

  3. The jail crew picks up litter along our highway at the front of the neighborhood. I don't understand why people think they can throw stuff out of their cars. It always looks so nice after they clean it up.

  4. Mom Paula noticed last night that our yard needs mowing.

  5. That water problem has turned into a never-ending saga, hasn't it!! It's good to see you guys haven't lost your sense of humor!!

  6. The irony of that isn't lost on the Mom!!!

  7. MOL! I always said my Dad has a reverse mowhawk!

  8. That is definitely a mohawk..I don't think the soup kitchen will deliver :(

  9. That is too mulch funny!!!

  11. Sheesh those jail workers could have asked someone if it would be OK to make the grass be more even looking...common sense right?! Maybe that's how they got into the jail...they furgot to use their common sense. Well...maybe Miss Jan could ask the neighbor for the mulch...that way both parties win...the clippings are cleaned up and the mudpie-yard at your den is covered in nice soft grass mulch:)

    Oh my word, would you believe it?! Oh well.... hugs wags and whiskeries, YAM-aunty xxx

  13. Maybe Jan needs to do a Google search fur RENT A GOAT

  14. You better give Akan a treat for all her hard work BOL
    Lily & Edward

  15. We think Jan showed great restraint, well done! We wouldn't want you kitties and woofies to go without your meals.
