Victory is mine!

I recently posted about the fact that my neighbors haven’t mowed all summer. Well, they finally did! Or rather, the city did and now whomever bought the house will be charged the ~$200 fee that is associated with it. The most astonishing thing is that under all of the weeds and long LONG grass was a pretty nice lawn! I will admit that I did do a few rounds of weed killer in there just for good measure. Most recently I sprayed Roundup on a huge thistle weed that had grown to about 3.5’ tall.

So, the next thing is I am going back and forth as to whether or not I should just start mowing it on my own. Like I said, it isn’t the issue of the mowing that I care about. It is more about pissing off the owners of the place should they ever decide to show up. I’m thinking that I may take my chances. After all, I HAVE been working on my calluses lately.

Now, if I could just get those pesky kids from riding their mopeds on the trail in the back of my house. Where was that number to the city again……..
