Oh Dear Lord Barb.....

I hate ants... and I had an episode the other night. I found a box of krispy kreme doughnuts in the freezer dawnstairs, and opened it to thaw on top the washing machine.
I went to grab them to take upstairs after jamming one down my throat, and I fumbled the box, and it flipped out, I thought a doughnut. WRONG!!!.... One wound up falling behind the washer. I didn't realize that!!!

Later that night, Tina went down to wash placemats from dinner, and she flipped. The whole washer was flithered with black ants. She sprayed them all with spray and wash. Must have worked, because they all disappeared. Then she found the doughnut behind the washer... "My Bad!"
Naturally, I never heard the end of it! LOL

Good Lawdy - have you called around for other pricing? That sounds like a complete rip-off to me.

So sorry about the animals,,,,,,can't help out there.

I'm about to pay $50 for a very small backyard but Brian hurt his back and it's really overgrown.  For that amount, she'll pick up the few things laying in the grass, brings her own lawnmower and edges, too.  Plus she cuts the front which is just two small strips of ground cover in the front beds and the strip of grass between the sidewalk and the street.  

Brian normally does the whole yard and front with a weed eater but he told me the plastic handle broke off (it's about 8 years or more old) due to dry rot so we need another one.  I could never do it, as I can't hold up the weed eater for that long, even before the broken vertebrae in my back.

Michelle.... You need to get a goat. Tie him off to eat the grass, but not close enough to eat the flowers... LOL

Years ago, Mr. Manfredi lived across the street. We watched him kneeling, and cutting the grass with regular scissors.
#1...He was a cheapskate, and #2... He was a Tailor.

There was a man that was inflicted what we called The Manfredi Curse.
He married a woman, known as Mrs. Manfredi. We never called anyone by their first name when we were kids. We learned respect.
Anyway... She was a nice woman, and normal as can be.
So the story goes.  One day, my grandmother crossed the street, and was going over to visit her friend Anna. The homes years ago, were built close to each other, and with like only three feet between them.

Grandma, started to go between the two tightly spaced homes, and Frank Manfredi laughed, and snickered, while saying to grandma, "Hey Mary, you gonna fit through there?" "You better go sideways or you might get stuck!" Ha Ha Ha!"
(note! Gram was handsomely Stout ) ( She never used the word fat )
Gram said ( in Italian ) a few choice words; in as much said "Frank, some day you will regret what you said!" .... All he did was snicker at her!

....................Years passed... and all of a sudden, Mrs. Manfredi came out to sit on the porch, and OMG... she was getting huge! ... Another two years, and she was so fat, she honestly looked like "The Fat Lady" in the circus.

Spitefully, My grandmother one day, crossed the street when Mr. Manfredi was in the front yard, and his wife was in the house. Gram said, "So Frank, what happened?" .... "Your wife is so FAT, she couldn't fit even sideways through the buildings!" .... "See what happen from when you made fun of me?"
"Now, you have a wife, so big, she can no even wipe her own culu!" ( butt )

I said to my mom when Mrs. Manfedi died, "God bless her! I hope and pray the gate of heaven was big enough for her to fit through!"

Laughed my "culu" off, Jimmy! Thanks for that, as I needed a good laugh today!!

Glad you got a chuckle out of it. I just hope Mr. Manfredi learned a lesson.

Ours costs $50 just for the front, twice a month and most of the front lawn isn't lawn anymore. We have this water issue and were forced to cut back so there is no longer a lawn in the backyard and patches of dirt in the front. It looks awful. Some people in the 'hood are having artificial grass put down. We checked into it and it would cost $10,000. I'll pass. If the drought ever goes away we will lay new sod. What is funny is that we have to cut back on water. OK. we did it. Our water bill went down at first but the water company wasn't making as much money so they increased the rate for us cutting back. You just can't win.
