Thanks for all the condolences concerning the Snowy Bear. She loved kids. She got petted by a little kid just 20 minutes before she died. Of course my asshole neighbor was the last non-family member to ever pet her. She'll probably haunt his dreams forever.
As a homeowner I think blowing leaves around is pretty much the most fun you can have.
When we talk about a beautiful fall day in the Midwest we're pretty much talking about today in Minneapolis...50's and sunny with the wind blowing the leaves around in addition to some jerk with his 35 dollar electric leaf blower from Home De-Pot.
We'll be married 31 years tomorrow. Good gravy Jim!
