Anyway, I was talking to fachless at euchre on sunday, and I said, "I spent all afternoon trimming my hedge, and it's still not done. I'll have to finish tomorrow."
"What were you using to trim it," she asked disbelievingly, "nail clippers?"
"No, I had an electric hedge-trimmer. It is just a monstrously enormous hedge! It's taking over my whole backyard."
My friends seemed unconvinced, but fortunately I have some pictures as proof. This thing was huge! It's still pretty big, even in its nicely-trimmed state. My hands, wrists, and arms are still sore from wielding that trimmer. My sis' helped me out a lot on sunday, but monday I was on my own -- though my neighbor was kind enough to cart away the vast piles of branches I'd chopped off. It completely filled and overflowed his pickup truck.
