    Poor DH has had a rough go of it these last couple of weekends.

    Last weekened he was hit by a Red Wasp right on the top (tender part) of the ear... It sweld so bad he looked like a 1970 wristler!

    This weekend, he drank a mouth full of ants that had made their way to his traveler cup of Gatorade... As I am coming around the corner, he's running in the house... I followed and he took a slug of Jack Daniels because they were wiggling down his throat! [​IMG]

    Bless his Chicky little heart... We were at it until the heat got us... Thinking about having a Sushi dinner now... They fix it, we eat it and no dishes!

    At least he hasn't lopped of a finger with his power tools and has been patient enough to let me play with them even though I can't read a tape measure! [​IMG]

    You'll have to be extra nice [​IMG] [​IMG] to your DH for all he's gone through for your chicken coop!!

    We've never built a coop, but having started building our house 8 years ago, I can truly say that it involves blood, sweat and tears. I got a red wasp sting myself last week. Whew!

    Whatever you do, keep your DH thinking you can't read a tape measure. Trust me, your life will be much easier. 20/20 hindsight. [​IMG]

    God bless you and especially hubby for his continued patience through adversity.

    DH appreciates everyones support and so do I.

    The girls are going to have one heck of a coop because of his construction talent.

    I am one lucky wife for having him and Thank God every day for bringing him into my life!

    Just make sure he gets lots of freshly-baked cookies and delicious manly meals of his favorite meats and potatoes after he's done working. [​IMG] Guys will do anything for yummy food.
