How I Mow the Lawn

This is the way I mow the lawn
mow the lawn
mow the lawn
This is the way I mow the lawn
when my husband isn't home.


I drive the mower really fast
really fast
really fast
I drive the mower really fast
when my husband isn't home.


I run over too many rocks and sticks
rocks and sticks
rocks and sticks
I run over too many rocks and sticks
when my husband isn't home.






I even chased this cute little hen
cute little hen
cute little hen
I even chased this cute little hen
when my husband wasn't home.





Today I almost slid in the pond
slid in the pond
slid in the pond
Today I almost slid in the pond
On my husband's brand new mower.*




*This is a true statement, only it is worse than that. I drove the mower to the pond after mowing to check on my dear duck Prudence because I was too lazy to walk. I was staring with love at my dear duck Prudence before I somewhat panicky realized I drove down the embankment. It all ended well. Later Molly offered to take my picture as I sat on the mower:




S'pose it serves me right.

Very funny!

I wonder what our husbands do when we are not there to get into trouble??

I go too fast on the mower too, and cringe with guilt whenever the blade hits something!

What a funny post, you have me singing right along over here. I will have to see what kind of a ditty I can come up using that melody, and filling in the blanks with the crazy things that I do when my husband is gone!! Maybe we should make it a blogger-friends theme song!! fantastic. you really made my day with this one. hugs, Debby
