In A Hurry Sally...

So, the douche-bag that rode my ass up the parkway and into the office park and who continued as we drove over the speed bumps and into the parking lot is the same woman who went out of her way to hold the locked door open for me as we entered the building, WHY?!

That was nice of her but it bothered the $hit out of me just the same.  Seems she was in a bit of a hurry to get into the office, so why wait and hold the door open for the person who's ass you were just riding for about a half mile?!

In my mind I proceeded slammed the door off her dumb head repeatedly, then leaving her in a heap in the doorway as I stepped over her and adjusted by coat.  However, in reality that's just not me.  Rather like the dumb @uck that I am I donned a smile and happily said, "thank you"!

Happy Lawn and Gardens

It's been a couple weeks now but the following items have all been completed:

Pulled lawn tractor out of winter storage, purchased a new battery, checked tire pressure and fluids - all looked good.  She started right up!

Thatched the entire yard/lawn.  Performed this tasked in several different directions to ensure a through thatch job!  Crazy just how much thatch came up too.

Mowed the entire yard/lawn, with the cutting deck set very low, to both cut the grass but more importantly to pick up all the thatch, leaves, sticks, bark, little rocks, acorns, etc.

Spread (2) 40lb bags of pulverized lime on the mossy areas of the lawn.

Spread (1) 15,000 sq ft. bag of Scott's Step 1 Crabgrass Preventer Plus Lawn Food on the entire lawn.

Turned (tilled but without the tiller) our BIG garden, approximately 15' x 24'.  This got the compost and winter rye turned and mixed in nicely to help "feed" the soil.  All are gardens are now ready for planting. Just need the New England weather to cooperate and warm up.

Re-edged a number of flower beds to help define them.

With all the rain we've had this past week the lawn looks fantastic!  If a dandelion happens to appear, it's pulled and fed to our rabbits.

“the expulsive discharge of neuromuscular tensions”

An interesting article on how orgasms can affect longevity...

"As it turns out, the benefits of sex are a factor in all three categories of male mortality – heart disease, cancer, and environmental causes (stress, accident, suicide) – and plenty of scientists are pushing the idea that the more sex you have the longer you’ll live."

"“For men, the more the better,” he says. “The typical man who has 350 orgasms a year, versus the national average of around a quarter of that, lives about four years longer.” And more than those extra four years, Roizen says, the men will feel eight years younger than their contemporaries. Is there an optimal number of orgasms for the average man? Roizen suggests, with a straight face, that 700 a year could add up to eight years to your life. This is an ambitious prescription: The average American adult male has sex just 81 times a year."

 “Frequency of intercourse was a significant predictor of longevity.”

 “Sexual activity seems to have a protective effect on men’s health,”

A Turkey Hood Ornament Perhaps

Here is an interesting picture of the lone wild turkey that has been visiting off and on throughout the Fall, Winter and Spring.

I find it rather unusual that she's alone all of the time.  I would have thought, with Spring in the air, that she would have connected with some of the other turkeys that are nearby.  Not yet anyway.

I would suspect that if she continues to perch atop vehicles she's gonna wear out her welcome very quickly!

Mouth Watering Garlic!

Lookie lookie!

Our garlic isn't wasting any time and taking off with the warm weather!

Can't wait, hmm hmm good!

Oh NO!

It certainly didn't take too long once the weather broke for the woodchucks to venture out, UGH!

They have a couple holes they're currently working on and they're not very far from our gardens.

Another gardening season and another seasons of matching wits with these darn whistle pigs.

Stay tuned to see who comes out on top!

Find The Critter

Can you find the critter in the above picture?

Easter Bunnies

We're happy to report that all (6) of our baby bunnies have been placed in their new homes.

I'm happy to report that both mother rabbits have since been moved back outside and are NO longer residing in our basement!

Happy Easter!

What's Wrong With This Picture?!

Apparently, when you're contracted by the town of Franklin, to perform road work in the town of Franklin, violation enforcement doesn't apply!

This roller was parked within 12' of the fire hydrant all weekend long, beginning at approximately 3:00PM on Friday!
