There was a time
When leaf raking was fun
When I was young and so were the children
Now it is not fun any longer
My back hurts just looking out the back window
Hmmmmmm is there a better way????
I tried mowing them down
Also tried mowing with the mower bag
Also tried raking them into several mounds of leaves
Then sucking them up with a blower
Now I am just waiting
For the last tree to lose its’ leaves
Wishing that the leaves will disappear on their own
