I am a newly published author. I have a series out, starting with Penelope, the first story about my great-niece. I have been an educator for most of my professional life. My goal is to publish my stories so that children can learn and love to learn.
About two weeks ago I took out my brand new, used only once, Stihl backpack leaf blower to blow the leaves on the driveway. It has to be done because the driveway is long and steep and tires slip when the leaves get wet. I won’t even talk about the snow! Anyhow, I blew the driveway, which was the second time this year, and it only took about 45 minutes. Looking at the front lawn I thought to myself, “hmmm, not too many leaves. This shouldn’t take too long.” Three hours later!!!
David bought from a neighbor last week a mulcher that you hook up to the lawn mower tractor and it vacuums up the leaves! He finally got it working last night. He took one loop around the front yard and the whole thing was full! The bin part of this could easily fit two adults sitting down! Thank goodness for this though, because I don’t know how many more times I can blow the front yard….and not all the leaves are down yet!

“Yeah, Marcy, it’s me. I’m parked outside the coffee shop. They are so far up each others’ asses that he doesn’t even notice me parked across the street. What a cheating asshole!…..I know I’m only here for another minute, I want to get a picture. There is no way he is telling me I’m the crazy one……Yeah, well when I have this photo in my hand and his suitcase he can call his new girlfriend for a place to stay!…..Ew, you should see her! The wrinkles! She has to be about ten years older than him, either that or just aged really poorly!….Haha! Right?!?!?!…..Okay, let me get a picture and get out of here before he sees me. Dumb ass. Even I can see my car in the friggin’ reflection! What a scumbag. Well, he’ll have a surprise waiting for him on the front lawn!….Yup, all his shit!…Okay Marcy, I’ll call you later, bye.”
