Grandma Got Run Over. . .?

Yesterday I spent the second of two days in a row working in the yard, pulling weeds, trimming bushes, edging beds--you get the picture. Add to that picture a small front loader, a big bulldozer and a huge backhoe. No, not my tools, rather the tools of the construction company building the house next door.

Our side flower beds are rather close to the lot where the house is being built and the huge pile of dirt they were leveling and using to back fill was very close. I'm no fool. I didn't work on that area of the yard. Besides, the closer I got to the property line the more I kept hearing that Christmas favorite, "Grandma got run over by a reindeer." Only in my head it was coming up John Deere. I didn't want any new songs composed in memory of my potential demise.
