Leaves

Image hosted by Photobucket.com4 hrs of raking and I've only done the backyard. I am so tired and my back is aching. This North American thing naa mek it ya know.

First its the waste-of-time grass that keeps you going all summer and then its the useless, non-fruit bearing, trees shedding leaves that kills your back in the fall. I've about had it up to here with mother nature in this country! I'm serious. I'm close to the edge. I'm about to go Texas chain saw massacre on my backyard any day soon.

Damn useless trees! I mean doggone it all if I'm going to have to rake leaves till the cows come home at least give me a golden apple, a mango even a few ackees (guineeps) or something for all my hard work.

Instead I got trees that just produce leaves. What good is that to me? Man cannot live by leaves alone. It aint even to say it is leaves that I could use to boil pieca bush tea like Cerasee or Wonde-wirl or something so and its not like the tree got a bark that I can boil up and drink like mauby. Chupse!

Wonderful just wonderful! But see wunnah, wunnah trees an grass that laughing at me and got me working so hard when my weekend come, wunnah wait deyso cause wunnah aint know that there is a bag of cement just calling my name. A bag of cement just begging me to mix it like my name was DJ X. So alright go ahead and feel wunnah got big man ta mek joke off of. As Rupee say 'enjoy yaself in the mas cause ya neva know it might be ya last' and as the old people say 'Day duz run till night ketch it!'

I'm going to bed now and hopefully I wont be in too much pain in the morning.

LOL.. J, as you know I just purchased a house recently and I came back from out of town last night and noticed all of the leaves on the lawn. I'm like... maaannnn... looks like I've got my work cut out for me.

Serious land makes for some serious back breaking extra-curricular fall work. But hey, look at it this way. Think about all of that good ol' cardio that you put in play yesterday. Maybe my post tomorrow will be a companion piece to this one, seeing as I've got to do mine pretty soon too. Lata man..

That story makes me glad I live in an apartment building! I use to have rake leaves at my mom's and it is truly back breaking work.

ProfessorGQ said...

quite thought-provoking...which makes me rather own a condo over a home...living in an apartment seems nice right about now because I loathe yardwork

I say get a local kid to do it and then stiff him, at least until your child is old enough to have to do it. Or you could pray for heavy winds.

It could be worse, you could have a mulberry tree that drops useless berries, AND leaves...or like my poor neighbour who has two inherited apple trees in his backyard that drop apples and attract racoons, skunks, and squirrels from May to August, and wasps in september. So many in fact that he couldn't even go out there and pick up the apples that had fallen without being harrassed by wasps.
Last year, he got so pissed that he went out there in April and sawed all the branches off of both trees, before the cycle started.
Poor guy had had enough.

i'm with starfoxx15 on this - in fact it's good for your lawn, mulches itself right up and fertilizes.
