Now, about those judgeits...can you leave them alone?
I guess not. Look at you go :b

You've pissed off too many people.

Good morning, GM and Sublime!
I need input. Would it look tacky if I hung a huge indoor/outdoor clock on my house. It would face the street. Without the huge Christmas wreath, the area looks naked and I feel compelled to dress it.
Decorative concrete block - or what about crafted screen? Check these out

Then of course, these designs may be completely inappropriate for your home.

Not everyone would go for that offer! LOL
No doubt. I'd be like, thanks, but no thanks ... I think I'd rather drop $20 bucks for my own pizza and beer and enjoy it in the confines of my climate controlled house, next to my remote control rather than bust my a$s all day and sweat working in your yard for free beer and pizza.

I think that offer only works with hobos.

Greetings Perf, SB, Mia and Rose of T!

The "clock" would have to be HUGE. That's if I can find one - something at least 50" in diameter. If not a clock, something else that's at least as big. Uncle Google has not been my friend this day.

One would think that buying (soon) new furniture would appease my nesting instincts. Not so. I'm on a roll. I'm thinking about an overhead kitchen fan, too. Someone please stop me. I seem to be out of control.:-)

Are YOU being sarcastic?:)
I would never ask my friends to help me with that. I'm pretty sure they don't want to take time out of their life to help me work on my yard. It's not exactly fun.
All I said was---the more people that can help you the better.
How is that being sarcastic?
I have a few brothers....they usually help us....and if they can't help us, we hire someone.
No big deal.

I just don't know anyone who would enthusiastically want to come over and slave away in my yard doing landscaping out of the kindness of their heart. Given that I know no one REALLY wants to do that, I wouldn't ask them.

IN terms of hiring landscaping out. I think it is vastly overpriced. I dropped around 70k on landscaping and an irrigation system on my property in CO. After that experience, I would rather have more money to save and do it myself for a fraction of the cost. It's not too bad if you just rent the equipment you need to make the job easy and do it yourself.

I would never ask for that kind of help from just anyone.
It's family. They help us, we help them.
That's just the way it is in our family.

Holy crap. You could open your own tequila distillery with just one of those.
Whats really hard - besides the spikes? the sap. It's an irritant.

I think the one that Knight Pirate put up is the true Tequila agave. I guess mine is called a Century plant. It puts up a stalk that is as high as a telephone pole. Full of yellow flowers that the humming bird go nuts for. Then it takes about two years for it to fall over (the whole plant dies but leaves a ton of pups that start showing up under the dead mass.) What is interesting though, is finding all the crap people have thrown in there over the years. Bricks from now defunct LA brick companies, old bottles etc.

Your family is way more kinder then mine. I WISH I could get my brother to help me out. 6 4" of testerone, and not a drop to help his poor sister out.

You have a nice family. My bros would laugh at me. I'd laugh at them too. It would be one thing if any of us were in real need, but landscaping is more of a luxury.

You probably mock puny dandelions after having to deal with something like that growing in your yard.

An exterior clock over 4 feet in diameter is going to limit your choices. You could probably have a woodworker or iron craftsman custom make something for you. If you want tacky put up a large digital time and temperature like at the bank. You could use it to wish the neighbors happy birthday or warn them to stay the hell off the lawn. Another option would be a large wind chime or wreath. Many craft stores like Hobby Lobby sell wooden wreaths you can add seasonal flower to. As a last resort hang a Budweiser sign and serve drinks until you pay off the furniture.

Without a truck you have a real problem. Those things are huge! Maybe you could get someone from the Navy or Air Force to fly by and level them. How close can you get a truck to those things Rose?
