Bad Timing

Posted Wednesday, December 9, 2009, 4:15 PM


The whole morning was wonderfully sunny and quiet.

The early afternoon, similarly warm and pleasant.

But the very minute I sit outside in my yard to quietly read a book, what happens? Next door's lawn mower starts up, which then sets the opposite house's dog barking.

Bloody typical.

Unfortunately if you live in an area with grass, lawn mowers will always be present. They're mostly a nuisance on weekends, but I guess there's always someone home on weekdays to fire one up - and the nice weather DEFINATELY brings them out en masse.

Ironically I had one start up across the road last night at around 7:45pm and it was pretty loud, until about 10 mins later when it spluttered and died (ran out of fuel I think) which was accompanied with an appropriate vocal response from the operator - alas we had peace again :)
