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…

Has A Week Really Gone By?

Damn! Mostly been out at the property¬ moving dirt around with my digger. Kind of fun and relaxing in it’s own way.¬ The weather’s been pretty good lately.

Had Bob (The Dirt Guy) and his dozer out for the 5 hours he owed me. Damn, can that man move dirt! He did a lot that would have taken me forever with the digger. Dome hole, the clearing and the road all look pretty good now. (I’ll take pictures tomorrow.)

Kathy brought lunch out and we did some measuring for fence and deck and other things. It’s nice having her out there.

And that’s about it.¬ Oh, had my double-nickel birthday the other day. Kathy bought me TOOLS. Cool! Got a pneumatic brad nailer, finish nailer & Staple Gun (and the tank and compressor) AND she got me a Miter Saw. (Thank Goodness for the Home Depot Card!!)
