Leaf-Raking Ordinance by Order of Small Children

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks

We we on our way home from work and school one day this week when Karenna saw landscapers using leaf-blowers in a neighbor's yard.

Karenna: That's stupid!
Chris: What's stupid? (We don't like the kids to call things stupid.)
Karenna: That guy is blowing all the leaves around.
Chris: No, honey he's blowing them into a pile and then he'll take them all away.  People pay him to do leaf clean-up.
Karenna: That's what I mean.  That's stupid! You're supposed to let the little kids rake them in a leaf pile and jump in them.
Chris: What about the neighbors who don't have kids?
Karenna: Well, they can pay some guy to make a pile I guess... But only if they don't have grandkids who want to jump in them!
