Buried In Debt

by LisaMay

We hate gardening, so we decide to phone a landscaper to get some beautification done in our backyard. He advises that a rock garden will be suitable. He has other creative ideas but his price is becoming expensive. We agree that installing a sun dial will be a nice outdoor clock

Today, straight after breakfast, the landscaper arrives with a pile of rocks on his truck. He has a crawler loader to position them. I can carry the light ones by hand. Hubby has his forklift licence so he jumps in the cab, fills the bucket, swings it around then dumps the load.

Later, I’ve made a pot of tea and have biscuits for us, but now they’re ready we can’t find the landscaper. Uh oh! There’s blood seeping from under the rocks. Oh goody! More biscuits for us, and no landscaping bill either!
