Signs I need to mow my lawn more often

Remember a couple posts back when I expressed my surprise that the only thing I found on my lawn post-Carp Fair was one pop can? (As opposed to numerous alcoholic beverage containers, a feminine undergarment, and the odd pile of stomach contents that have shown up in years past). Well, I spoke too soon.

The weather here today was lovely -- warm and sunny. I decided to tackle the raking and the mowing. It hadn't been done in a while. I was working on a section of the lawn that's almost a ditch and, well, the grass there is a little long. How long, you ask? While raking leaves in preparation to mowing I found 7 Coors Light bottles, a mickey bottle of Smirnoff, and a Tuborg can.

Hmmm, Tuborg. Imported beer. Looks like we got a higher class of litterbug this year.

    What's a mickey bottle?

  2. Oh a mickey is 13 oz. formed so it fits in your pocket (in theory.)

    Tuborg eh? Impressive really, at least there was no vomit...

  3. No bodies? Surprisingly. I guess the kids gotta stash the empties somewhere before they get home.

  4. Caching, caching is what I say. I pick up the occasional empty (we live a block from a pub and some things get smuggled out), and just toss it in the "special" bucket. All the proceeds go to a trip to 7-11 for a Slurpee.

  5. Wow - how high was your grass?

  6. Was it green apple smirnoff???
    I knew it was too good to be true before....
