Right before closing a resident comes in and says she has mold growing in her yard.

R- resident

Me- lordy, lordy!

R- I wanted to report there's mold growing in my yard

Me- You mean on your fence?

R- No on the dirt. Green mold.

Okay, I'd like to point out to non-desert dwellers that this is monsoon season. We get lots of rain 'round these parts at this time of year.

Me- That's moss.

R- Moss? Are you sure?

Me- It's been raining a lot lately and moss will grow even in the desert during monsoon

R- Well, I poured bleach on it

Me- :doh: It's moss. Once the air dries up again, it'll die and go away on it's own.

R- So it won't hurt my dogs?

Me- The moss? No. The BLEACH? Yeah, probably!

Who in their right mind would pour bleach on anything outside....especially if they have animals? :confused: Oh, wait a sec, just answered my own question. Nevermind!

We've got several patches of it right now because my complex likes to water an hour a day....every day. Should be lovely after the remnants of Dolly goes through.

TTAZ, which state are you from?

I wanna hold a Christmas BBQ once I get back to New Mexico. Wanna come? Pagan, you're invited too.

Oh, hell yeah! Just let me know when and where. I'll bring the Guiness!

I thought it was a combination of "Tarot" and "Taz" from Looney Toons.

:o

Arizona isn't far from New Mexico.

D'oh! I thought it had something to do with Taz, too! Glad I'm not the only one that has misfiring neurons....:p

There are plenty of misfiring neurons going around. I was trying to figure out which state was TA. :banghead: Then I realized it was AZ.

Of course it's gotta be TexAs!

Well... Actually...

I used to do some volunteer work in an animal shelter. In point of fact, unless they drink it directly, bleach won't hurt the dogs. It's even less harmful after it chemically breaks down a bit.

Okay, okay, the name was a bit obscure :lol: It's shorthand for TucsonTaylorAZ- i.e.- my town, a fictional character from a book that inspired my move here, and my state.

Difdi- I didn't know that about bleach, I hope the silly woman didn't pour enough on the ground to form a puddle, I never like hearing about animals being hurt, especially for such a stupid reason as that.
