Okay, so, a long time ago we were working in Larry’s front yard pushing dirt around to re-grade a low spot when someone suggested we go get more heavy bags of dirt. I slung my rake over my shoulder (like an idiot) and it clipped a Japanese Maple on the way to the ground. As some of you know (and the rest now will) Japanese Maples are beautiful trees that grow very slowly so my stupid rake slinging has always bothered me. Larry and his family don’t even live in that house any more but I got inspired to rectify my mistake because I now have an employee discount at the garden center. So there you go.

PS: Larry: Sorry if this comic sounds really, really familiar, as if it was exactly what we said the other day when I dropped off the tree.
