The Running Realtor: Flat Matt and the Yard Work

A blend of ramblings about Real Estate & Running around New Haven County and the Connecticut Shoreline

Flat Matt and the Yard Work

We decided to take a few days off and putter around the yard after the long winter and an extremely wet spring.  Our first project was to remove some large trees growing a little to close to the house.  After downing a few and trimming the brush we both needed a break, cannot spend the whole day off working.  

Flat Matt wandered around the yard taking time to smell the roses, well the roses have not bloomed so dandelions were close enough.  Next he checked out the bird feeder, swung on the tire and played some lacrosse.  He became overheated with all the exertion and went to dunk his feet in the river. 


Opps.... The little woman arrived home and does not seem impressed with all the work we did.  Guess we have to get back to that brush pile and cut up those logs.  Gee Matt... Look how easy the bark peels off,  Mother's Day is coming,  Do you think she would like a new floor lamp made from this old tree?  

Flat Matt's week in Connecticut is nearing the end. Since his Arrival we have done a little running and found an abundance of Trilobites but have not really seen the landscape of my towns.  Our next mission is to introduce Flat Matt to my territory before he leaves on Friday to visit janeAnne in North Carolina.

He did get a little closer to the water than anticipated but it was harmless.  The next day he required medical treatment for a problem unrelated to the water.

When I saw "yardwork" in the title I was getting scared.  Flat Matt has a extreme fear of lawn mowers and weed eaters that may turn him into confetti.  Actually Curvy Matt has an extreme fear of yard work in general, just ask Lydia.

Not a good idea to get Flat Matt tha close to water.  I am starting to get the feeling that Flat Matt is more into playing than he is into working :)

Matt... Your Flat version is rather delicate so I kept him away from the dangerous equipment. 

George... That's what my wife keeps complaining about but in reality this is work.  I made my first RSS for the Trilobites blog and here is the first time I used tables for the photos.  All this playing helps with real work.
