I sure wish I could post a poll forn this one...

What is it with men and tier lawns? Is there a secret lawn society we don't know about?

What happens when yo get home and Mama has requisitioned part of the sacred lawn for a cutting garden. :D

I'd like to think Warriors are a tad more tolerant og CinC-Home decisions.

No "male obsessive lawncare personality disorder" around here. If the brush needs trimming it gets done with a chainsaw and cat (crawler tractor type). I don't golf, I don't worship grass. Got knives to make.

There is no secret lawn society here. The lawn gets cut close to the cottage once a week to deny the small critters cover and concealment and the meadow gets cut after every wildflower bloom or when the only thing I can see of the two pups are the tips of their tails breaking thru the top layer of the grass. Good luck with a cutting garden. Anything planted up here will only add variety to the diet of the deer, moose and snowshoe hare.

I don't have a lawn. I live in a city of almost 8 million people. And Carlos can't plant mines in the concrete without tearing it up or leaving wet concrete behind.

Damn NDD, don't let some of those old retired SGMs hear you say that. You will be getting a can of green paint and a frigging manual on rock painting.:D

LOL - Roger that Sir. When I first got to Group, I bought a small house in Hope Mills. Turned out I was RIGHT across the street from my Company Sergeant Major. I found out because he walked in and went straight to the fridge, where upon I received a class on the requirements for maintaining a stock of Coors Light in case the neighbor needed a clandestine emergency resupply. Turns out several Team Sergeants bought houses in that development upon returning from Vietnam and many of them were in my Company. I received "notice of requirement for area beautification" on several occasions. LOL

I was just at dinner with the wife and one of her friends. The lady begins to explain to us that we needed another cat and were we interested?

Being the somewhat cordial and inquisitive guy I am. :D I ask how much? She says $2000-$4000. :eek:

Who in the hell pays that much money for a house cat?

Damn sure not me!

Don't be makin' fun of Guy, I spoke to him last week and could sense he is a man of both culture and highly refined taste. He deserves the right of first refusal on expensive kitty cats. Now about those lawns, I drove thru your neighborhood last week too, man that ain't loggin' country. Very nice.

LMAO!! You poor thing!! What kind of gardener hits your car?? Geeez!!

I take care of my own gardening, I like to work outside. I get a kick out of making my roomies place look like a girly house. I know he is going to lose his mind when he gets back!!:munchin

Actually, Bill wanted for us to look you up, but I told him you had dropped off the planet.

You would have been more than welcome to cross the highway and have a cold one with us.

Mr. Harsey, I would imagine that rides are not offered to just anyone. Quite a compliment to you, I'd say.

That offer has expired.

By my beer math, you now owe me beers.

Pool party in your sub-division?

Well, I guess I will be MORE than happy to provide the beers, unfortunately...the dog has not dug a hole large enough to fill and use as a pool, but he's working on it.:D
