The Grass is Always Greener

Dear Yard,
I know we have not been the best parents to you.  It is true that we left you covered in a frozen tundra of snow all winter and crisp acidic leaves all fall.  I admit that a little too often we let our dog pee on you, and we don't give you near the vitamins and nutrients you need to live a healthy, hearty life.  BUT, we are pretty darn good to you on a regular basis.  We try to keep you properly mowed and watered - that was only ONE TIME that we left the sprinkler on overnight last week, and Jeff has worked very hard to patch up your "bald" spots these past few days.  I understand that you've had a hard life, but we are new at this, and would REALLY appreciate it if you'd "spunk up" a little bit.  One or two flowers every once in a while would be AWESOME.  And, we'd be overjoyed if you went a whole season without turning brown and dying.  Otherwise, we are seriously considering concrete... everywhere. You have simply left us with no choice. Thank you for your kind attention.
Jeff and E

P.S. Please remember that your life could ALWAYS be WORSE.

  1. Does Jeff ever work out in the yard with his shirt off? If so, can you post pictures?
