I just came home from running errands and found our neighborhood's "Yard of the Month" sign hanging from our mailbox. Who's on that committee, anyway? Were they impressed by all the pretty dandilions?
All I can figure is that the award stemmed from our myriad of Halloween decorations. They did look really good (we even noticed cars slowing down to gawk after we put them up), but now that they've been taken down, anyone looking at the house is going to wonder "Why the hell did they get 'Yard of the Month'?"
