Yes, the U was fun back then. Lots of fun.:)

CLA would've been nice ... all I seemed to do was take MMPI's for the psychology dept. I have an "interesting" brain you see. I jest.

Thanks for the guidance. I confess I was merely pulling my friend Pragmatist's leg, and have no intention of obtaining sheep to graze down my weeds in excess of 8" tall.
My larger point is that amazing amounts of city resources are misused -- case in point the inspectors who cruise our alleys in search of criminally tall weeds, any paint that dares peel, and secret garages without numbers. The City is helpless againt drug-dealing gang-bangers, but heaven help the homeowner whose weeds have matured!
In lieu of sheep, have you considered paving your whole lot? You could paint it green..........probably not an ordinance against a cement lawn.........

Hmmm -- I should pave my Paradise, and put up a parking lot?

Why didn't I think of that? Guess I am not very original!

I don't think Kathy would approve of such a garish attraction -- I don't, either. Maybe a few pink flamingos to symbolize our bird-brained City Council?

Sure -- a couple hundred of these in each Council Member's front yard should do the trick. Will you organize the fundraiser to pay for the birds, bail, and fines?

Ubetcha ... Norm'll just turn out some more duck stamps, won't-cha hon? I know where a certain member lives. The others won't be hard to locate.
