No More Leaves!

I just dropped Dave (5:00A) off at the airport for his Costa Rica vacation. On the way home I had to stop at Starbucks for a gingerbread latte. You know the holidays are around the corner when Starbucks brings back their holiday drinks (besides going into the retail stores and all the holiday decorations just slaps you in the face). The gingerbread latte is like drinking a cookie, it just "melts in your mouth."

Before Dave's trip to Costa Rica, he and I raked the yard (mostly Dave). John, our neighbor from across the street, came over to give us some advice. John told us he didn't know what he would do if he had as many leaves as we had. His advice to us was, "get a chain saw." Only John would say such a thing. He only has one tree in his yard and earlier this fall he had it cut back. While we were raking, Dave had to stop to inspect a mark on the VW. We joke that he may have a compulsive disorder.
Last year we raked more than 50 bags of leaves. This week we raked about 20 bags and last week the town of Framingham had already picked up about dozen bags. Unfortunately, we still have a lot of leaves left on the trees...Dave's work continues...
