I got a new toy today.
A Black&Decker lawn edger.
I’m not normally a B&D fan, but the price was right.
I can hear my neighbors cheering already (and thinking maybe now her front yard won’t look so decrepit!)
I got started right away - the sun was shining, and the baby (Little Man) was happily sitting in his high chair by the open front door watching me.
Perfect right? Ummm, I guess I forgot to knock on wood!!
After the first pass along only one side of the walkway, it began to drizzle (what happened to my sun!)
Next thing I know, I’m caught in a sudden torrential downpour at the same instant Little Man begins a screaming wail that threatens to strip paint.
I packed away the tools and glanced back out at the lawn which had that hopeful look that said Please don’t leave me like this!
So… I didn’t get to spend much time with my new toy,
Little Man is screaming, and
it took 5 minutes before I realized…
I had stepped in dog crap.
