Friday Wisdom – Lawn Care

So far this week, it’s snowed and rained. No freezing temps for most of the week and looking out my office window, it looks like I need to mow the lawn this weekend so here’s everything I know about lawn care:

Song lyrics to sing while mowing: “I fought the lawn, but the lawn won.”

Sign on the lawn at the rehab center: “Keep off the grass.”

My description of a perfect summer day: Sun is shining, there is a light breeze, birds are singing, there are steaks on the BBQ and the lawn mower is broken.

My neighbor has a service that brings out a cow to eat the grass short. It’s a lawn moo-er service.

I asked the Hulk for some advice about my lawn. I know, but he does have green fingers …

A friend of mine just got taken to the hospital. He was out on his lawn looking at caterpillar tracks when he was suddenly run over by a bulldozer.

The police said that the burglars used grass to pick a lock at a house they robed. I don’t know, that evidence may have been planted.

I had an old lawn mower I wanted to get rid of, so I put it at the end of my driveway with a “FREE” sign on it. Someone took the sign but left the mower. I should have been more specific.

I just saw a man slumped over his lawn mower crying. I asked him if there was anything I could do. He said he’d be fine, he was just going through a rough patch.

I had to buy a new lawn mower. The old one just wasn’t cutting it.

What did the monkey say when he got his tail caught in a lawn mower? It won’t be long now.

    THat may be your best set in a very long time, although, I do admit that I have a lot of emotional baggage when it comes to lawn mowing.
    My favourite? β€œI fought the lawn, but the lawn won.”
