#31 Rocky Garden

He built the rock garden because he needed a hobby.  It started out small but over the years it grew and grew and he became more and more obsessed with expanding the garden.  It overflowed on to his neighbor’s property and that’s when the law stepped in.  The policemen saw how beautiful the rock garden was, but rules are rules and they had to move the rocks out of his neighbor’s yard.  They stacked them neatly in a pile and left a nice note.  But something changed after that and his love for rock gardening faded.  It faded like a stale flower placed in a bag and put in the freezer.  He never again picked up another rock, except to throw at his neighbor.

Fancy Snow Feast

I always find it funny when I’m stranded in my house after a big snow storm. It is even funnier when they cut the heat off because I haven’t paid the bill. What is even funnier is when all I have to eat is cat food. Okay, I see this not making sense. My mistake. In the preceding sentences change the word “I” to “you” and then it is funny. (Except for the first “I”, leave that one alone). Okay, now I’m confused, I guess what I’m trying to say is that I get a kick out of the thought of you being cold and eating pet food.

It’s a Trap

I don’t think it is appropriate to use his real name, so for the sake of this article I will call him Carl. Carl is a thief. He constantly breaks into houses and barns and takes whatever he wants. Everyone seems to give him a pass. I have complained to the Sheriff on numerous occasions, but he just ignores me while he goes through the stuff in my barn.
