One thing that really drives me crazy, one thing? Actually that’s not correct . . . a lot of things drive me crazy. There are actually people who don’t ride around with me because I look at everything! Actually there are people who ride around with me because I look at everything!
Where was I . . . oh yeah, things driving me crazy . . . actually there are people that would say . . .
Well that’ll be a short trip.”
or . . .
Hey! you’re already there!”
Anyway; it’s this, people who live in the desert or a very arid region, say Las Vegas, or Salt Lake City(huge abuser of this peeve) and plant big water guzzling, herbicide sucking, pesticide using lawns . . . drives me crazy. For the life of me I cannot figure out why Americans insist on lawns in places where lawns have no business being. Drives me crazy.

“Rick stumblin’, what’s so unusual about that”.
What this is, is a artist piece by Kathryn Miller in 1995 and it’s great, it really hits home on the stupidity of installing a lawn in a landscape that has no business having any kind of turf lawn. So today is a big salute to you Kathryn Miller, I wish I had come across this sooner.
This statement is even more relevant today. An aside,I hope Las Vegas is still taking out turf instead of allowing it to be installed.
