Our new house in the country came with 1/2 acre of land, lilac bushes, shrubs, and number of large trees. It is the trees where I begin my story. The trees that each dropped nearly a million leaves this fall…the leaves that took 4 days to rake into piles…the piles of leaves that when mounded were 3 feet deep!!! It was these huge piles which inspired me to commit “animal cruelty.” Well as the title states…I don’t really think it was all that cruel….actually pretty hilarious. You decide.
