Leaf me Alone..

..or the end of the 2016 Leaf Saga here in “Amity”.


The leaf men, or arbor technicians…lol…actually showed up around 8:30am.



I was ready to have heart failure because I couldn’t believe they actually came close to the date on the flier.They started down our street ,but it was not without a glitch, though. It would figure that they got to our next door neighbor’s house,and,what do you know? I watched the guys and the one who was operating the vacuum hose informed me it stopped picking up because the truck was full. “We’ll be back.”


I’m from Philly. I believe that..NOT!


Didn’t they come back 20 minutes later? Color me chagrined. I leashed the girls up and got them out for our morning walk so they could read the rest of their leaf mail for 2016.

Bring on the snow!
