You look out the window – and there they are – 50 to 100 strong!
“GET OUT OF MY YARD” he shouts!
And out the door he runs!
They can wreck havoc on your yard! Leave nasty deposits –
so when walking in shoes or bare feet
you can feel it as you step on it!
We moved in almost 34 or 35 years ago –
right behind them at our old home in WNY!
We were neighbors for 12 or 13 years!
We shared many moments of laughter –
racing riding lawn mowers –
playing friendly jokes on each other –
and me trying to compete with his beautiful lawn!
He has his own business – starting by himself
and today his crews go nationwide!
Carol now works with him after retiring from the college scene!
Together with their son – they have built this business
into a first class operation.
They purchased this home a year ago and then the boat.
We have all gotten together at various times –
but this is the first time in WNY at the lake house.
And it is beautiful!
Friends all these years – jokes – laughing –
he will never retire –
he loves what he has started and adding to all the time.
Just like his lawn all those years ago –
not one blade of grass – out of place – no weeds –
green – manicured to perfection.
