In reply to Mowing snow by Henry in MI on March 14th, 2000 11:55 PM [Go to top of thread]

At least you had a MOWER,

When I was but a wee lad, I was allowed to PAY for the OPPORTUNITY to cut our 10 acres of five-foot-tall bluegrass with dull, rusty SCISSORS in the snow. I had to pick up each of the clippings by hand, carry them to the compost pile, and stir the compost with a toothpick. I was only allowed to do this after a long 45 minute night's sleep, put on my only set of trousers that my 5 brothers and our father's 6 brothers and sisters wore before me, remade my straw bed, and ate my nutritious breakfast of compost scraps.

Afterwards, my father BEAT ME if I was LUCKY!!!


(I love Monty Python!)
