As soon as she was up, it was clear she had a plan. Out the door and into the front yard she flew. Rake in hand . . . . . . and supervisor at the ready. Being an only child, and living where we do, there aren't any other kids around to jump in the leaf pile after a couple hours of work.

But, Holli, she'll stay until she's released. And suffer through all the piling on of leaves that other kids normally wouldn't put up with!

Yeah - it was a good day off.
A damn fine good day off! I just can't bare to tell Kathryn that we have a leaf blower and that the pile actually makes it much harder for Jon to blow the leaves. And for God's sake - don't any of you tell her either. It'll wreck the whole day!
