A Step to the Side

Recently I have begun to experience the strange thrill of lawn care. The front yard of Jerkwater Estates was patchy and weed-ridden when we bought the place. This spring, I reseeded and fertilized the area a couple of times, and recent rains have brought forth new grass.

I've caught myself standing on my porch, reveling in the sight. I'm so old.

Though I must admit, my inner monologue is digging it. "Behold, new life springs forth from the mud, at my desire! I have made the earth bountiful! Ho ho ho! Now bring me a plate of your finest meats and cheeses!"

My inner monologue sounds a lot like Brian Blessed, in case you're wondering.

Back to comics with my next post. Really.
