Thread Name: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Rain? I had to clean the covers on two catch basins out front that were clogged with (ignorant) peoples lawn clippings and also with leaves and small branches. I had two huge snow shovelfulls* to dump in the compost pile. I shall have (polite) words with the fellow across the way and ask him to send his clippings lawn side or sweep them up.

I enjoyed it. When I saw on the radar that the rain was over, I flung open the windows and Mum Nature serenaded me to sleep with the wind in the trees. B**** woke me up a few times too but 'bad/good' eh?

Common usage here but it's the first time I ever saw it in print. Shovel fulls. Nope. Shovelfuls? Aha! Thanks spell checker.
