Owning a home is a lot of work. Lately, my obsession has been maintaining the yard. All of the leaves have fallen off the trees and have filled our yard and our gutters with the remains of Autumn. I tried my best to rake and rake and rake, but finally had to throw in the towel and buy a leaf blower. I had no idea it could be so much fun, as I spent five hours blowing and blowing and blowing the leaves away. Upon hearing of my leaf blower adventures my mom spotted this comic in the paper and thought of me. This is Laurie’s vision of her son in the yard.
