you know its fall cleanup when:

you are mulching leaves and three immigrants from the south cut a gas line in half while making a flower bed and the whole street gets shut down blocked off by fire trucks. you sit there three hrs. until its repaired and you can start your mower and be gone.

You know you have been doing fall cleanups when all you can hope for is one more chance to double cut a nice green lawn.

Wind to back.......good.....blow the leaves thata way.

Now wind in face.......OK.........blow them that way..........

Now wind hits you from the side and what was in front of you is now back all over the lawn again.

30 minutes runs into an hour...........you leave and it looks like you never came.

you know you've been doing fall clean-ups when...

you find yourself outside an hour after dark still blowing leaves that you can't see because you dread returning the next day to finish

you find that the floor mats in your truck have been replaced with several inches of maple leaves

you find yourself dreaming of snow so all these leaves will dissapear

When your done with a leaf cleanup and you have your magnificent 30 foot long neat pile in the street and your staring down the neighborhood kids with the look of death.. And you know they are just waiting for you to leave so they can freak it all up.
