Now I know why the previous owner wanted to move

Autumn Leaves

Autumn Leaves

One of the joys of living in a old neighborhood are the handsome old trees that line the streets. Their branches from opposite sides of the street interlock in a canopy, diffusing light to the passersby on the sidewalks and streets.

What are not diffused are the brood of feral leaves that find their way to my doorstep. I spent nearly an hour raking leaves in the dark. I couldn’t stand looking at them for another day. I didn’t even bother picking them up, I just raked them onto the street for the street sweeper to deal with. I pay my taxes. I’m entitled every now and again.

    hmmm, what goes onto the street usually goes into the sewers if the waters come down before the street sweeper uses it’s brushes to brush away your leaves which you didn’t want to put into bags because you were plain ol’ sick of ’em…. lol ….
    you are entitled to tip that halo every once in a pink moon… 🙂 I do it all the time!

  3. Well, the joke was on me. The street sweeper did come buy and he did sweep the street, but left my large pile. I’ve since picked it up. You can’t fight city hall.
