Last week I mentioned a couple of times that Betsy and I were working hard to get the leaves out of our yard. We really wanted to get the yard cleared before the weekend, but we didn’t quite make it. We were, however, able to finish up Saturday and Sunday.
It turned out we got everything done in time. It rained here in the Glade yesterday (Monday), but we were surprised to hear the noise of equipment getting louder and louder. At first we thought it was something coming up the hill in front of the house, but when I looked the road was empty. I then looked out back and saw the two tractors pictured above.
In spite of the rain the maintenance department was out picking up leaves from the golf course. (I guess that made sense since there weren’t any golfers!) And what we appreciated the most is that they picked up the leaves in the rough between our back yard and the fairway. And since that is where we put many of the leaves from our yard, we were delighted.
I hasten to add that we aren’t being given special favors. Having leaves we put in the rough picked up is a ‘perk’ of having a golf course home. And we sure do appreciate that ‘perk’. If only I could get them to come to the front of our house with their equipment!
