Damn Fine Last Couple Of Days!

Me? I spent a LOT of time out at the property moving things around or cutting wood and bringing it home. It’s all stacked outside waiting for me to split and stack it. I just love this hot weather! Up at the property wearing nothing but flip-flops!

Took Kat to see “Fantastic Four: Rise Of The Silver Surfer” last night. Wasn’t hardly anyone in the theater. Didn’t like this one as much as the first one; even though the Silver Surfer was one of the comics I read when I was (much!) younger. Did like the special effects (they did the Silver Surfer pretty good!) but the quality of the film overall was lacking. Ah well…

The Broken Mower…

When our lawn mower broke and wouldn’t run, my wife kept hinting to me that I should get it fixed.¬ ¬ But, somehow I always had something else to take care of first, the truck, the car, playing golf -¬ always something more important to me.

Finally she thought of a clever way to make her point. When I arrived home one day, I found her¬ seated in the tall grass, busily snipping away with a tiny pair of sewing scissors.

I watched silently¬ for a short time and then went into the house. I was gone only a minute, and when I came out again I handed her a toothbrush.

I said, “When you finish cutting the grass, you might as well sweep the driveway.”

The doctors say I will walk again, but I will always have a limp…
