As the giant mutant acorns fall, there is nothing more enjoyable on a Saturday morning than to head out to the deck with a great cup of coffee and the newspaper. All summer long and even now that the days are cooler, I Iook forward to the peace and quiet of my own backyard. This morning, as I was relaxing in my weekend ritual, I spotted a parade of landscape trucks rumbling down the street towing the ever-present lawn machines, leaf blowers, hedge trimmers and weed whackers. There is nothing more irritating than the overpowering sound of an industrial sized mower on an otherwise serene Saturday morning. I’m beginning to believe that it is all about the power. These guys love being in control of your lawn with their massive machinery. They ride around, revving up their engines, wishing that the grass would grow faster so that they could mow even more often! They are even more deadly with their hedge trimmers and weed whackers, thinking that they are Michaelangelo and have been commissioned to sculpt the grounds of Disney World. Don’t even get me started on the blowers. Aren’t humans meant to live in harmony? Today, we were definitely not in sync. Maybe it’s me that’s out of sync…maybe next year, I’ll join them! I wonder how much those big mowers cost?
