Backyard Makeovers!

So while I was down in Florida Larry unfortunately had to work. So what was a girl to do? Read a book? Drink fruity drinks out of a coconut? Lay in the sun? Naww I completely redid the entire back yard. Well it needed it!! Plus I have a hard time relaxing it's a gift or curse I haven't completely decided.

Here's before:



After lugging about 25-30 loads of pine needles out of the back I arranged them hap-hazardly in the front.



Here's a picture of the back with all of the pine needles in the front and the timbers ripped up:



I found a turtle while ripping the timbers up!



And here's the finished product! We planted knockout roses and azalea's in the L Larry dug when he moved in.



We planted Indian Hawthorn and Sky Pencil's in the back and laid out cypress.




All in all I'm pretty proud I was able to accomplish so much in a week. I seriously don't think I've ever sweat so much in my entire life. It wasn't even that warm!!

I'm devestated to leave, and have warned Larry that should I ever see so much as a weed in my beautiful backyard I'll have his head on a platter!

Larry is way smooth...

Original email to Larry:

INSTALLING A HUSBAND

Dear Tech Support,

Last year I upgraded from Boyfriend 5.0 to Husband 1.0 and noticed a distinct slow down in overall system performance, particularly in the flower and jewelry applications, which operated flawlessly under Boyfriend 5.0.

In addition, Husband 1.0 uninstalled many other valuable programs, such as
·Romance 9.5 and
·Personal Attention 6.5, and then installed undesirable programs such as
·NBA 5.0,
·NFL 3.0 and
·Golf Clubs 4.1.

Conversation 8.0 no longer runs, and Housecleaning 2.6 simply crashes the system.

·Please note that I have tried running Nagging 5.3 to fix these problems, but to no avail.

What can I do?

Signed,
Desperate.

DEAR DESPERATE,

First, keep in mind,
·Boyfriend 5.0 is an Entertainment Package, while
·Husband 1.0 is an operating system.

Please enter command: ithoughtyoulovedme.html and try to download Tears 6.2 and do not forget to install the Guilt 3.0 update.
·If that application works as designed, Husband1.0 should then automatically run the applications Jewelry 2.0 and Flowers 3.5.

However, remember, overuse of the above application can cause Husband 1.0 to default to Grumpy Silence 2.5, Happy Hour 7.0 or Beer 6.1..
·Please note that Beer 6. 1 is a very bad program that will download the Farting and Snoring Loudly Beta.

Whatever you do, DO NOT under any circumstances install Mother-In-Law 1.0 (it runs a virus in the background that will eventually seize control of all your sys tem resources.)

In addition, please do not attempt to reinstall the Boyfriend 5.0 program. These are unsupported applications and will crash Husband 1.0.

In summary, Husband 1.0 is a great program, but it does have limited memory and cannot learn new applications quickly. You might consider buying additional software to improve memory and performance. We recommend
·Cooking 3.0 and
·Hot Lingerie 7.7.

Good Luck!
Tech Support

Larry's Response:

It sounds like Desperate just didn’t find the right version of Husband 1.0. The packaging of the software can be quite deceiving since there are many different builds of the software and some packaging is flashier than others. I think when system performance starts to degrade, installing Love Language 1.0 will normally put the system back to where it needs to be.

Personally speaking, I installed Wife 1.0 and had very poor results. It was a system resource hog and was a very high maintenance program. The best thing I did was to uninstall and find the perfect version of Wife 2.0. The system seems to run so much smoother with Wife 2.0 and I find that it’s constantly in pursuit of self-maintenance. This one’s a keeper for sure. Plus, Wife 2.0 came with a free version of Daughter 1.0 which is really fun to play with and is a great source of constant amusement. What a deal!!!

He's so smooth!
