Let me thoughtfully distract your attention from that pile of crap by pointing out this pile of dirt

Our back garden, an unruly place at the best of times, has lately had two carloads of rocks haphazardly dumped on it, for very good reasons which I will not go into right at the moment. Taking this unruliness and adding a haphazard mess on top of it has only added to its tranquil charms, let me tell you. This is not to mention the regular ravaging of the landscape that occurs every day because of the rampaging descendants of the archeopteryx, our three chooks.

While out back we are in the midst of haphazard unruly mess, out front, we have had a pile of decaying matter, a heap of dirt, and a shitload of, well, shit, neatly placed. That is, some bales of straw, dirt, manure and to be added to the unruly haphazard mess. I had in my naivety thought before today that when such material is home delivered it tends to come in bags or boxes, like, say pizza. Nope. Apparently they just put it on your front driveway.

Soooooo, anyway, apart from these examples of landscaping - shit, dirt, dead grass, unruly haphazard mess - tomorrow my parental unit is dropping in for a visit. Apparently its the custom to make the place clean on such occasions, hey? Hmmmm, ha, yeah, we'll see how that works out....

UPDATE! -  Feel a bit funny about leaving big piles of dirt and poo on the front driveway tonight. What if someone steals them? Just how exactly would you go about stealing two big piles of dirt and poo, anyway?

You've never heard of shoveling shit? That's how they steal it. Shovel and ute, or car boot, not particular.

Get it off the front lawn, quickly! People will steal anything, anything at all, opportunistically.

Well I am here to keep an eye on it. The car is in front of it so it's not that easy. The trouble is we've got nowhere to put it yet, until our raised garden bed gets.... raised.

Chain the fearsome guard cats to the front lawn. They'll protect it.

BTW Tim, if ever there was a post at my place that I expected you to comment on, it was the one about the new OZ movie, and the books.

But no comment. Unhappy face...
