Re: The Grooless Wanderer
And speaking of mulch...
I find out on Friday that the county is giving away free loads of mulch. Well, we
need mulch at my house, can't live without it, bathe in it, etc., etc.
I call the county, surly man answers the phone, I say (in my prettiest voice, I
always give surly people my pretty voice. I soothes them) "I understand you're
giving away free mulch"
"There's a list" he growls ominously
"Well," I reply prettily, "Could you put me on the list, please?" (I'm only rude to
salepeople on the phone)
"It's a REALLY long list" he growls, maybe a little less surly.
"Well, I really need it, and I don't mind" I say with a twinkle in my voice (he
can't see my eyes, so I put it in my voice)
"Well, where to you live?" he asks, maybe still a little gruff, but not so surly
I tell him where I live, and he says "I'll bring you a load tomorrow."
"That's great!" I exclaim, deep admiration in my voice (I have an acting
background), "You have been SO helpful! I can't thank you enough!"
Well, the next morning (Saturday) THREE HUGE DUMPTRUCKS come to my house and dump
two tons of mulch in my front yard. They woke up my neighbors, too!!
Anyhoo, that's it about mulch, except that if anyone needs some, they can contact
me. I don't think we'll be able to use it all.

P.S. You cannot imagine how horrible two tons of mulch smells. Our neighbors are
kind of pissed.
