I’ve mentioned before, we live in a neighborhood composed of permanent residents and part-timers (snow birds.)
I guess being snow birds they don’t know the ins and outs of the basic care and maintenance of Florida living.
Mostly in the lawn and garden categories.
Plus we have rules and regulations that are, to say the least, mercurial.
They change the lawn watering rules as often as I change my mind!
And then there are the rules on how and where to put your garbage cans for pickup…..
Rules for landscape debris---
How long, wide and heavy it can be----how to tie it up……on which side of the driveway it has to be placed…..
When you are allowed to fertilize your lawn and what kind of fertilizer you can use…..
What you’re allowed to plant and where……and on and on……
So a sort of ‘routine’ has developed.
The neighbors watch Husband and then do what he does.
At first we thought it was just coincidence. But it has become quite obvious that they follow his lead.
And it’s hysterical!
Husband trims the palms…..the next day the neighbors are trimming their palms.
Husband fertilizes the lawn, the next day so are they.
He weeds, they weed.
He sprays for bugs, they call the bug guy.
