    Ok, this is the phone call I received this morning:

    "Yes, I have a stupid question, but I am 70 years old, and I was wondering whether it is bad to rake the leaves when they are wet," she said.

    "Well, nothing is wrong with raking the leaves when they are wet, but since it is so windy today it would be a lost cause," I said.

    "That is what I thought as well...thank you very much," she said.

    Then she hung up the phone

    Not toooo looney........she was probably just worried it would hurt the grass?!? In pure theory it could spread fungal spores. The old do amuse me so though.

    maybe she had someone there that was going to rake her leaves and she wanted to be sure she wasn't throwing her money away.

    Are you advertising your services as the Leaf and Lawn doctor or something? Random phone call IMO.

    This week I am starting to feel like bobby. It has been horrible

    to make matters worse tonight I took my truck into the dealership to have the fuel line replaced, and they ended up keeping it over night because they had to drop the transmission. What a nightmare!!!
