Well, maybe I am a little crazy. Some would say a lot more than a little. Anyway, as you know, it poured rain all weekend over most of Western New York. Now, it is already the middle of May and I have things to do! I had 14 bags of garden mulch all ready to spread! No way was I letting a little rain get in my way.
It must have been quite a site. There I was in the front yard all day Sunday, in a teaming rain, doing my thing. I could see my neighbors looking out their windows, then running to get their spouse, bringing them back to the window and pointing at me! Several motorists actually stopped in front of the house, rolled down their windows and yelled, "are you crazy"? I just smiled. As soon as the next nice weekend comes, I will be sitting on the porch having a beer while my neighbors are slaving in that hot sun, trying to get their gardens back in shape. I think I'll yell over, "hey, are you crazy"?
