    She's treating me like common yard labor!

    "Build me a retaining wall she says."

    Do I LOOK like I need a retaining wall in my yard?

    Well...I didn't know I needed one. Guess I was wrong.
    My dear wife knew exactly where it was supposed to be.
    She even knew that blocks it was supposed to be built from.

    Would you believe she even knew which store had those blocks
    in stock?

    So guess what I was doing today.

    But as you may remember, I'm old. Quite old. So I'm a little slow.
    Put a block in it's place. Look at it....Look at it a really long time.

    Then have my dear wife look at it.

    Drink a cold ice tea. Rest.

    Place another block.

    Look at it a really long time.

    Find wife to look at it.

    More tea.

    Darn...it's raining.

    Happily watch it rain.

    Drink another tea, get more rest.

    Day over.

    I have four whole blocks in a straight line.



    It's going to be a long summer...

    (did I forget to mention that wife and daughter are going to
    an amusement park tomorrow while I slave away?)

    Spook...in shackles

    Please define "Quite old."

    Ranchy- quite grateful that tomorrow only requires cooking, laundry and putting up shade cloth [​IMG] Sheesh, I'm getting off easy!

    D'awwwww, poor Spookie. [​IMG] Maybe Em and I should slave over a hot stove for hours on end making you brownies, yes? [​IMG]
    The horror of it all.









    Anybody wanna bet that Spookette and Spook, Jr are getting revenge for him not sharing his peanut butter cups?

    My fingers hurt.

    I broke a nail.

    She doesn't allow brownie breaks.

    I found out I sweat when I work to hard.

    And most of all...I now know the reason I need a retaining
    wall in my yard.

    "Because they're PRETTY.

    I'm seriously considering running away from home. I probably would,
    but I'm too tired tonight.

    Don't take too long on that wall. Your wife said she would send you over to finish my coop when you are done with her project. [​IMG]
