Leap year

by on Tuesday, February 28th, 2012

Tomorrow is leap year day. We get an extra day this year to frolic or work one. I will probably be working on the house. I am quite sure I didn’t need and extra day to do that. Really I could have gone without a whole extra day of chores. No matter though, I will persevere, and the wifey will be happy. I have my honey do list all ready for tomorrow. I have to clean out the garage, the gutters, the flower beds and the garden patch in preparation for planting. Oh fun.

I think my wife would make a really good warden in a prison. It would be the prettiest prison as well as the most productive. She would probably grow all of their food right their on the prison grounds and turn it into a working farm. Don’t tell her I said that though, she would kill me. I will get it all finished though I am not worried about that, but I am going to be one tired man by the time I am done. It will be worth it though as I will have everything in perfect readiness for spring planting and wont have to worry about finding anything I need. I have to run to Home Depot and pick up some yard bags and such now.

Car Repairs

by on Tuesday, June 21st, 2011

Connie‘s car would not start this afternoon, so I went over to see if I could help her out. It was a dead battery. I always carry a pair of jumper cables in my trunk, so I drove over to her ed of the parking lot and hooked up the jumper cables so she could get enough power to start her car. It did start right up, so I told her to make sure she runs the car for at least 20 minutes to recharge the battery. If she does that, it should start right back up in the morning. But if it doesn’t, I told her to give me call in the morning and I would come over to give her a ride into work.

Birthday Wishes to Connie

by on Friday, June 10th, 2011

My friend and co-worker, Connie, is celebrating her big 4-0 birthday this weekend! Around here we tease people about the big ones with little rhymes: “Lordy, Lordy, Look who’s turning Forty!” I said that to her this morning when she came into work, and she turned beet red! LOL

Friday at work I hurt my toe and it has gotten worse over the weekend. I sat a 300 pound piece of equipment on my toe and did not even know I had hurt it until Friday night when I went to take off my sock. It is better today but it made for a very rough weekend limping around looking for sympathy which I got none of anyway. I am to damn old to be hurting myself like that. I am in bad enough shape anyway with out adding to my misery. You know if I had known I was going to live this long I would of taken better care of myself over the years.
