it's a southern thing

I'm kinda proud of the lawn I have now. It's ACTUAL GRASS and I've pretty well fished out all the rebar and construction debris the builders left behind. Plus, I have this really cool deal with my neighbor.

I have a good riding lawn mower, but my weed-whacker is dead. So, I mow HIS grass when I mow mine, and then HE comes over and trims all the weeds and shrubbery in MY yard. I call that fair. He doesn't even ask for a beer. (of course, he never offers ME one, either.)

That's the way things work in my neck of the woods.

Sounds great. Send him up here to whack my weeds.

The kid next door uses my riding lawnmower and mows mine when he mows his. Works out great for me. Alas, I can't get the little heathen to do my weedwhacking.

Sounds about right ... but who handles the fireant mounds? That'd fall under "special duties" to my way of thinking.

What color is that neck of the woods, my esteemed-yet-unmet friend?

Hasn't rained in two weeks here and my anal retentive neighbor has mowed twice this week. Weirdo.

Off topic: You know you're number three in a google search for "How to cook ribs"?

The other day, I borrowed an offset wrench from my neighbor. Yesterday, I returned it.

He then asked me if I he could borrow my tile saw. I said yes.

Must be a northern thing.

OT, but my SMTP server doesn't like your e-mail address for some reason.

Lemme guess, that's your Negro neighbor, too? The one who helped you with the wiring in your truck? I really think race relations are better than the RWPP (Race Warlord Poverty Pimps) would have us believe.

This has nothing at all to do with weed-wacking -and everything to do with boiled peanuts...I googled boiled peanuts and your site came up...
From reading - YOU must know a way to make really good spicey boiled peanuts...I remember getting some in New Orleans and trying to pack them away to fly back to New England - ate them all in the airport...
So i may be barkingup the wrong tree...but I thought I'd ask..

What a touching story of Americans helping American.

In fact, as an American myself, I'm sure you won't mind a "Good Neighbor" Tax on each of you to ensure the spirit of cooperation for all. The Party of Incluson demands nothing less than your whole wallet.

My Negro neighbor? Well, he's somewhat darker of complexion than I am, but I just call him by his name.

"Neighbor."

One of my constituents, Franklin, has written my office.

I am a codpiece Franklin, which is designed to protect nuts from themselves.

As the most liberal Senator, I have many , many nuts who want me to coddle them..

Give me your address and I'll send you one of my majestic gray hairs.

Did you know my wife has half a billion dollars? But I'm going to raise YOUR taxes?

Onward!
