Well, finally...the yard is mowed...Marianne did a pretty good job. Since it was kinda
hot out there, I figured I'd be sweet and turned on the hose for her...That way she
could catch some water now and again without having to come into the house.
No sense trackin' in dirt and grass clippings....She had already vacuumed , swept
and mopped this morning, so I reasoned I was just savin' her from more work....
She seemed real appreciative when I pointed out a few places in the lawn that she
had missed, and I even offered to tend to them myself next week if need be, but......
she told me not to worry myself about it, and went out and took care of the errors with
a pair of scissors. When she came back into the house, she said that she was probably
just gonna go upstairs and wash off...."No rest for the weary, Sweetie!!!..." I replied.
"While you were out front fixin' those errors, I was thoughtful enough to light the
charcoal in the grill...The coals should be perfect right about now!!!...Hope you picked
up a coupla steaks when you went to the grocery store earlier!!!..." She gazed at me
with an expression that could only project how much she loves me...."While you tend
to those steaks, I'll go grab a shower....And, maybe, if you're lucky...I just might shave
And then I woke up.....
