The Monday Before Tuesday

DUH……………YES I know Mondays always are before Tuesdays but remember that I promised this Tuesday we’d have an EASY Teaser – at least easier than they have been so are you all warmed up for tomorrow?  Are you????

TEASER TUESDAY!

Tomorrow – Teaser Tuesday!

My ancient Mom and Dad bravely faced the leaves in the front and back yard yesterday – they’re real champs!   Dad was at the bottom of the yard where the big leaf pile is – holding his rake and sitting in his yard chair waiting for Mom to complete the tractor/leaf machine operation in the back yard……..she thought it might take a couple of “runs” but amazingly enough with all the leaves that were down, they all were sucked up and ground up and put into the big container behind the tractor in ONE run!    Mom drove down to the bottom of the yard and she and Dad emptied the container and Mom started on the front…………….only took TWO times riding around and around the front yard to clear it.   Things are shaping up – they figure we’re about 50 done for this season.     WOO WOO WOO…………..let’s hear it for the Landscape Team of Kimmell and Kimmell !!!

More fall leaves for Sam to play in!

these are ALLLLL gone now! YAY Mom and Dad!

That huge pile of leaves will break down over the next year or so and become the following Spring’s mulch for all the gardens……..now that’s way cool.

I shall be having a busy week along with my Office Coordinator/Typist (aka Mom) with the Cat Scouts Jamboree – first one EVER.   We will report on the activities as we go along but we hope one thing that we report a LOT about is FUN FUN FUN and more FUN.    Prior Scout gatherings have been more work and more pressure but this is promising to be more FUN and less pain!   YAY!

What’s up for you this week?   I’m actually looking forward to going to the vet to get my blood work done – I’m ready for some GOOD NEWS…………please please please please please tell me that my one pill a day is working Dr. Rethman????  PULEEEEEEZE?

Wake me when we have GOOD news!

Wake me when we have GOOD news!

Hugs, Sammy

    • Mom and Dad are thinking this might be the last year they do it themselves too…..it’s time to call in the BIG GUYS (and younger guys!) to do it. Thanks for the good vibes…I’m hoping to hear good stuff from the vet too!

    • Thanks for the happy thoughts Fozziemum. I’ll be happy if the doc says one pill works and we don’t have to do two from now on. Mom will be too since she’s the one who has to bribe/tempt/strongly suggest (!) that I have the one pill a day. Leaves are up but there’s tons more that will be falling this week. Poor Mom and Dad. But then seeing how hard you and Mr. Fozzie are working – well – my parents shouldn’t be complaining!

      • Oh Sammy those pills can be..well pills! I am sure if we all send enough good vibes your way it will work 🙂 and leaves can be a right pain…we used to battle them ALL the time at our old house..here it is just gum leaves and if we started we would never stop! I think your folks have enough stuff to do when winter comes..we don’t get the snow that causes work! all that shovelling and battling the freeze..yikes!! Hugs Fozziemum xx

    • HAHAHAHA on the Teaser Easy! I do think this one will be EASY………honest……now don’t let me down by NOT guessing right OK? I’ll have to “eat my words” if nobody gets it and I don’t think I could STAND that!!!!! What about French Hawaiians who wander in grass skirts from the North Pole to Australia – do you have a brochure for that????? HAHAHAHA

  4. We pray you get good news from the vet. Good job to mom and dad for cleaning that yard. Do your folks save the grass clippings too? That breaks down great for the garden. My Sammy is excited about the jamboree.

  5. Well well Sammy, I just read the landscape/leaf sucking report to CH just now because yesterday afternoon we were talking about your Mom and Dad and the technique they used for the leaf sucker. CH enjoyed your report. I pretty much did what your Dad did… the sitting in the yard chair part 😀 I did tell CH at one point that he didn’t get the back door closed and leaves were blowing out the back end! So yes, I snoopervised. CH wanted me to tell you that we do 22 complete full loads to finish our yard.. yes he keeps track each year of how many loads. We think your yard looks pretty up there! If the Teaser is going to be easy I will just guess now.. The Arch!!!!!

    Fingers crossed for a good report on your blood test Sammy!

    Like

    • HAHA on the Arch!!! One of these days I might recycle that one…..I bet you get it right!!! Twenty two loads for the WHOLE yard over the WHOLE leaf season is pretty danged good. Our average is maybe four or five to do the whole yard but that’s with it totally covered in leaves. Dad always wants to put the leaf machine AWAY before Mom does……and Dad ALWAYS wins that battle. So Mom says “FINE! You just have to use the backpack blower for all the REST then!!!!” and Mom ALWAYS wins that battle….tee hee. They probably will be out there this next weekend thrashing away at the leaves yet again………unless they’re covered with snow of course!!

      Sending Hugs – tomorrow the vet will steal my bloods at 2PM….then we probably have to wait for results! Thanks for the crossed fingers……….I appreciate that! 😉

      Hugs, Sammy

      • I’m thinking it should all be snowed out by the time it rolls into your neighbourhood. Or at least I hope so. I’m never mentally prepared and do a far bit of pouting until spring again. My fingers are still crossed. xoxox
