Look out, leaves

Dreams really do come true.

When I got home from work on Friday, this device was sitting out on our neighbor's curb.

It's one of them fancy electrical leaf shredders. And it works!

This is really going to change my Fall. I never got around to swiping bagged leaves from my neighbors last year, partly because it was such a pain to shred them with the lawnmower the year before. This year I'm going to be rolling (probably not literally) in shredded oak and pecan leaves. I'll be mulching a foot deep with them next summer, layering them with the kitchen scraps in the compost bin, mixing them in with my cereal for a crunchy, carbohydrate-rich breakfast. It's going to be awesome!

Oh the things that pass for excitement these days.

Wait wait, was this left out to die? A free find?

So jealous.

Very funny.
Your cereal will certainly be most awesome.
What a find.
