Ok, now I don't feel so bad because most people answered "no" on the poll (at least by this time, 12:45pm). I thought I was lagging way behind because most of my neighbors are retired people who can get out there every day and rake to their heart's content. I have to crowd everything into the weekend and sometimes am too darn tired to rake another leaf! Also, those darn old oak trees drop their leaves late, so I'm busy these days cleaning them up. Oh, well, love the trees, deal with the leaves!

No - some of the trees surrounding my house still have leaves on them. I'm not dealing the leaves until ALL of the trees around me are done shedding!

Why rake when you can mow?
