OOPS!

Remember in the Winter when we put some of the pool noodles around the tree trunks of the citrus to protect them?  Well, the trees died anyway and I took the blue noodles off and laid them in the grass...and forgot about them.


Today, on the Zen Machine, I FOUND one of them!

Hope you are having a good weekend!

More tomorrow (and I'll catch up on comment replies)

Oh dear! We have gone through quite a few hoses the same way. You would think we would learn, wouldn't you!

First lawn mowing today, four sprinkler heads killed. :-(

1st Man,

Darn noodles should have not jumped in front of the Zen machine.
LOL!!!!

Looks like you had a party---confetti!!

1st Man said...

Oh, I did a hose like that last year. It's so funny how we lay stuff there in the grass and go "oh, I'll remember that is there" and then grass grows, days pass and we mow right over it. I didn't even see this until about a second before I was right over it and "poof!!" blue pieces came flying out from everywhere.

OOPS! I am glad we don't have to worry about the sprinkler heads, though I do have a post where i need to tuck the hose into the ground that runs to the garden. I've got bricks over it so I don't have to worry. Hope you get Mr. Granny to fix those heads!

1st Man said...

EXACTLY!! That's what I said! And that shovel. And that hose. And that random brick... ;-)

OMG, I thought it was just like confetti. I got most of it up, on hands and knees picking it up piece by piece, but I couldn't get every little piece. I"m guessing there will be some bird nests with colorful blue woven into them, ha.

Admit it. When that blue floof popped out at you, there was a moment of panic. In my case, I would have freaked, jumped off and ran away thinking it was some type of mutant swarm of insects Well you know until calm reasoning prevailed after wrecking the mower and running 50 feet away and screeching like a banshee. And of course my neighbors would have witnessed the entire sordid event.

You only have to worry if the nosey cows witnessed anything. And before they get any ideals of telling all their barnyard friends, just walk up to them, look them in the eye, and say " How's it going T-bone and Ground Chuck?" Hah that'll keep 'em quiet!

I refuse to answer under the grounds that it might incriminate me. :-)

And as for the cows, I have to say, you came up with some great names. I suppose another good one would be "Patty", haha!!!
