Cancelled

The ratings are down. Way down. The readership has gone to other places. The powers that be have decided that the time is up for D.V.D. The Lawnwhisperer has a strange following. The people in charge of the demographics can’t put their finger on exactly where The Lawnwhisperer fits. It appears that the show will be cancelled. They are comparing him with the one season stint that Dennis Miller did on Monday Night Football. He is a funny guy, but wasn’t right for football. LW is not right for blogging. He is a funny guy, and has a fucking tremendous lawn, but he does not fit with the Blogosphere. So, to his 5 readers, thank you and good night. It was a bit of fun while it lasted. Dad vs. Dad is over. Maybe we’ll catch you in re-runs. Maybe it will be picked up in syndication.

No LawnWhisperer, don't go. It was fun hearing all of your relatives commenting to your posts and your bantering back and forth.

Unless of course you would rather spend more time with the lawn than the internet. *sigh* Well, I guess the pressure is on for William to post more to make up for his brother leaving us by ourselves........Have a fun summer at least.

Well, I for one will miss reading here. I was wondering why you hadn't posted in so long. My son enjoys your blog as well.

Best of luck to you. Have fun with the Skywalkers and *whispers* I hope you get the bunny.

Your ratings may appear to be down, but some of us (who shall remain nameless) view your posts through a feed reader. So we're reading, but may not show up on your stats.

Also? I clicked your site meter link at the bottom of the page. I wish my hits would "fall" that far! :)

I've enjoyed your posts. Hopefully William will allow you some guest appearances over at P&B. You know, like the old stars who would show up on the Love Boat.

whoa! what? WHAT?!? Dude, I've been checking everyday since last Monday for a new post...I hate the thought that there won't be anything new to read from you.

Hope that it's just a hiatus and you'll come back to writing and keeping us entertained. Hope all's well with the Lawnwhisperer.

Say it aint so LW?!?! What will we do? You have no idea how much I looked forward to your bi-monthly posts. If you stop blogging, that will be a total waste of your hard earned journalism degree, 7 years and 3 colleges down the drain. I'm begging you to reconsider.

Hey, if you've got 5 readers that's easily 3 or 4 more than I have, and I'm still shouting, unheard, into the void. No reason to give up!

Hey, I had like 3 people read my blog yesterday...so what I am doing this for me not them but it does make one feel good when you get comments.
Although I have never commented..at least not that I can remember..I do love your blog and the things that you say. It was like my daily chuckle. I hope you change your mind but if not thanks for all the laughs.

I will miss your writings, when over a bowl of cereal I read your latest post to my hubby and we both start the day with a laugh.
I thank you for that, and should you continue I promise to comment.
Honest I will.

Please don't go just because some of us don't comment. I have you blog rolled on my site and read everytime you update, i'm just a slacker when it comes to commenting. I need a dose of funny in my daily routine! Please reconsider!

It looks as though 13 people have subscribed to your blog on Bloglines. We read you every time you update... you just don't know we are there unless we actually drop by to comment.

Looks like we need to start commenting more.

I have you on my page as a link but I've never commented before (until yesterday, when I commented on your God's Creatures post).

You know how it goes, you stumble across a blog you like a lot but you don't want to just jump in and say "Hi, I'm some random person reading your blog, don't mind me".

But - Hi, I'm some random person reading your blog, don't mind me but I'm glad you're not quitting, you're very funny and I love reading your blog.
