Rough guess, I would say that we've spent $200 on toys for the bouvier de Flandres named Opie. Off the top of my head, I recall the $18 croaking frog we call Ribbit, the $13 squeaking hedgehog, the $15 Mr. Squirrel and a $17 Mr. Beaver. And that's not to mention various assorted balls and bones and chews. So what are his favorite toys? In no particular order, they are a limb from a cedar tree, a plastic snow shovel handle, a chunk of a broken ceramic lawn ornament and a cabbage.

Editor's Note: Tim Rowland is on vacation. This column was first published on May 5, 2001. Old Copper has since, um, been replaced. You might be surprised by the number of inquiries I receive about that slick, well-oiled machine of mine known as Old Copper, the Ford pickup built in the year of our nation's bicentennial that has been my trusted (somewhat) friend and companion over these past two years. To bring you up to date, the latest episode began (wavy dream sequence) a couple of weeks ago when my boss, Bob Maginnis, mentioned he was having a chestnut cut out of his yard and asked me if I wanted the wood.

Everyone loves the fall colors in our forest and yards. Some trees are spectacular in their colored leaves. Then the leaves fall to our lawns and we have to do something with them. What should you do? To me, the best option is to run the lawn mower over them and chop them up and blow them back on the lawn to decay into your turf. This is also the best process because you are returning nutrients to the lawn. This works best if you have a mulching mower and smaller trees, so you are not trying to mow too many leaves to be handled by the lawn.
