The kid went back last week and the task I assigned him for July and August went with him. However, due to the lack of rain lately it looks like I won’t have to drag out the mower for another couple of weeks. Leaf raking will then commence inevitably followed by the double ” s ” word – snowshovel. Aaargh !
In other summer news – Ran into a guy who told me in all earnestness that if you play Pink Floyd’s ” Dark Side of the Moon” along with the movie ” The Wizard of Oz” that a strange thing will happen. Both tracks exactly line up – the recording and the movie. No word if you immediately become enlightened or dizzy or have an urge to buy yourself a flying monkey.
I have neither the inclination nor intellectual curiosity to pursue this experiment. Let me know if it really works and even if it does – I don’t care.
And finally on the Labor Day a local car dealer is having is it’s annual ” Car B – Que.” Yup, you read that right. Get a burger, fries and for $190 down you can drive away in a used Yugo or some other such vehicle.
I say give your staff the day off unless the ” Car B Que” is so wildly successful that everyone makes a zillion dollars in commissions and can afford not to to work for a month. Otherwise shut the joint down and go to the beach or mow your lawn. Better yet, mow my lawn.
