Body Count

On Sunday I killed about 50; on Tuesday about 50 more died. Yesterday 24 were laid low. Today it was 18. The dandelions may always be with me, but I am exacting some heavy casualties.

In other news, my son has become a dandelion rights activist and it threatening to form Dandelions are OUr Friends (DOUF). He threatens legal action should any more dandelions be harmed and asks, "Can't we all just get along?"

Despite protests, the war continues unabated.


Do you have one of those dandelion popper thingys?

My weapon of choice is a forked weeder. I can never get the hang of anything else.

You know, I have to admit that I am a DOUF too. And a WOOUF, and I can't forget VOUF.
I can't help it that I like weeds. I actually let one grow every winter here... it has pretty flowers.

When the boys were young, I made the mistake of offering a penny for every dandelion (maybe it was a nickel), but they worked hard and I was out two fivers.
