Here's your sign...

We've been out mulching for the last two days and have a lot of groung to cover (literally and figuratively!). I have wanted to teach my new crew of veterans how I like to lay mulch by showing them the prep work for a landscaping bed and the finess of laying the mulch. I make sure they get underneath the bushes, weed the bed out, and make a nice edge that does not increase the size of the bed but defines it.

I don't know why, but sometimes onlookers ask the most bizarre questions or make comments that deserve a sign (reference the country singer who says to others: Here's your sign, Stupid!) to wear. I try to come back with witty comments so that the guys learn how to safely and quickly respond to a comment without becoming inappropriate.

Example... I am standing near a waterfall. Just have stained it blue to cover up the muck and crud that sinks to the bottom. A veteran comes out of the main building and goes: How did you get that water so blue?

I quickly replied: "I imported it...from Canada!"

Here's your sign.

How about when folks ask you "Is it hot enough for you?"

Nawww.... I want it so hot that I just instantly turn into a pile of ash.

Here's your sign.


  1. ....*LOL*....I could write a book on those kinds of comments I have gotten....and I do JUST like you with my answers...oh, the retail public can be such a pain!!

  2. I couldn't agree more! Thanks.
