I busted up when I saw this posted on Debbie Berger's Facebook page. Apparently, she spotted this on her 86YO neighbor Gene's lawn. Writes Debbie: "My 86 year old neighbor Gene is a very busy senior citizen. He rakes his lawn every day even though the needles relentlessly pile up over night and cover his handy work... Gene is a true inspiration to me and embodies the value of staying young by remaining active. He fights the good fight everyday one swipe of pine needles at a time." Izzit just me -- or does this bring a smile to your face?

Question: Are you needles in the lawn your biggest yard problem this time of the year? Or is it something else?
