Why folks move to the country...

A bad neighbor schedule:

6:30 a.m.: Let Tuffy out for barking session.

7:30 a.m.: Test car alarm.

7:55 a.m.: Bring in Tuffy.

8 a.m.: Clean entire backyard, front porch and driveway with leaf blower.

9 a.m.: One-hour aerobics dance workout.

10:30 a.m.: Rev car engine for one hour.

12 p.m.: Tree trimming! [More]

The article is by Steve Martin - one of my favorite comedians. I listened to his autobiography, "Born Standing Up" while commuting. It was illuminating and extremely well-written. The experience was like having him in the car with me telling his story.

Ha! That cracked me (and the read-over-the-shoulder brigade) right up. We moved to the country (although the boss is a born farmer) and a speedway moved in next door. Oh, well.

HAHAHA... we have a neighbor that sometimes mows WAY to early on a Saturday!
