God Finds Out About Lawn Care.

Imagine the conversation The Creator might have with St. Francis about this:

"Frank you know all about gardens and nature. What in the world is going on down there? What happened to the dandelions, violets, thistle and stuff I started eons ago? I had a perfect, no maintenance garden plan. Those plants grow in any type of soil, withstand drought and multiply with abandon. The nectar from the long-lasting blossoms attracted butterflies, honey bees and flocks of songbirds. I expected to see a vast garden of colors by now. But all I see are these green rectangles."

"It's the tribes that settled there, Lord. The Suburbanites. They started calling your flowers 'weeds' and went to great extent to kill them and replace them with grass."

"Grass? But it's so boring. It's not colorful. It doesn't attract butterflies, birds and bees, only grubs and sod worms. It's temperamental with temperatures. Do these suburbanites really want all that grass growing there? "

"Apparently so, Lord. They go to great pains to grow it and keep it green. They begin each spring by fertilizing grass and poisoning any other plant that crops up in the lawn."

"The spring rains and cool weather probably make grass grow really fast. That must make the Suburbanites happy."

"Apparently not, Lord. As soon as it grows a little, they cut it _ sometimes twice a week."

"They cut it? Do they then bale it like hay?"

"Not exactly, Lord. Most of them rake it up and put it in bags."

"They bag it? Why? Is it a cash crop? Do they sell it?"

"No, sir. Just the opposite. They pay to throw it away."

"Now let me get this straight. They fertilize grass so it will grow. And when it does grow, they cut it off and pay to throw it away?"

"Yes, sir."

"These Suburbanites must be relieved in the summer when we cut back on the rain and turn up the heat. That surely slows the growth and saves them a lot of work."

"You aren't going believe this Lord. When the grass stops growing so fast, they drag out hoses and pay more money to water it so they can continue to mow it and pay to get rid of it."

"What nonsense! At least they kept some of the trees. That was a sheer stroke of genius, if I do say so myself. The trees grow leaves in the spring to provide beauty and shade in the summer. In the autumn they fall to the ground and form a natural blanket to keep moisture in the soil and protect the trees and bushes. Plus, as they rot, the leaves form compost to enhance the soil. It's a natural circle of life."

"You better sit down, Lord. The Suburbanites have drawn a new circle. As soon as the leaves fall, they rake them into great piles and have them hauled away."

"No! What do they do to protect the shrub and tree roots in the winter and keep the soil moist and loose?"

"After throwing away your leaves, they go out and buy something they call mulch. They haul it home and spread it around in place of the leaves."

"And where do they get this mulch?"

"They cut down trees and grind them up."

"Enough! I don't want to think about this anymore. Saint Catherine, you're in charge of the arts. What movie have you scheduled for us tonight?"

"Dumb and Dumber, Lord. It's a real stupid movie about..."

"Never mind I think I just heard the whole story."

A Short Scottish Joke

To which she stops doing her tasks, looks at him over the top of her

glasses, and says,

'Fauk off, ye'll no bring it back!'

Gee, they want a bit of information, don't they !?!?!
So, what sort of a job do you think you'll get in the USA, Peter ??
Hope you are having a great weekend.
Take care, Meow

kenju said...

Peter, you could just pretend that you're going to work and then come for a visit, couldn't you? LOL
Maybe they'll pay the air fare.

I like that last joke!

The one about the Suburbanites is classic. Love it.

I've been wanting to write something about ecology but it's not one of my stronger areas of knowledge.

The Suburbanites is a classic and I'm stealing it for Is America Burning.

Did you know that girl is showing her boobs on your blog???

Great jokes Peter!!

I met Jamie Dawn today!! It was so nice to meet her. You can read about it on my blog.

What can I say?

Puss-in-Boots said...

Since when was Australia a developing country? What is an extraction and screening machine, for heaven's sake? It sounds most painful...no doubt someone will fall for the scan and fork out $755 for sweet FA.

The suburbanites story was good...and ain't it so true!

Walker said...

I get some of those emails all the time. One day I will send them a phoney cheque to see what I get back LOL

Cliff said...

Peter, there are parts of this blog that I found very entertaining.
I'll not, however, give anyone the advantage by confessing which part here in public.

so what ... \ o /\ o /
I see those everyday. Well.. not those particular ones.

I love the God conversation. I'm in total agreement. Although I love my grass, I also love the native plants and would like to see some of them restored to our valley.
