    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, and 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 and gave me
    that look of expectation, like I should get the hint. I watched silently
    for a short time and then went into the house. I was gone only a few
    minutes. When I came out again I handed her a toothbrush.

    "When you finish cutting the grass," I said, "You might as well sweep
    the driveway."

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

    Marriage is a relationship in which one person is always right, and the
    other is a husband.

    I don't know which is funnier; the joke or Lacy's comment.

    My Dad always told me about the 90/10 rule.
    If you let her be right and listen to her 90% of the time then
    you end up with 10%.



    Lacy, wait until you're married. Then you'll get the joke but you
    still won't think it's funny.


    Marlin are you a fisherman or something?

    Should have listed to the wife!!!! Some men just don't think its a big hurry to get it done! My hubby likes to let the grass grow until it almost chokes the lawnmower but we live in the city limits and kept razzing him about getting the lawn mowed. Well I had enough and paid my uncle to mow the lawn![​IMG]

    Marlinchaser, I love that first joke.
    Only a fisherman would think like that, Do you go deep sea Fishing?
