The Lawn Mower

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 shed, the boat, making beer.. 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. I watched silently for a short time and then went into the house. I was gone only a minute, and when I came out again I handed her a toothbrush.

I said, “When you finish cutting the grass, you might as well sweep the driveway.” The doctors say I will walk again, but I will always have a limp.

    Laughing out loud. πŸ™‚ Great story. I hate to say it, but I love his idea, but the last sentence is also hilarious.

    Have super happy Saturday Sandee.

    That is hysterical. Guess he got his just due. Hope he fixed the lawnmower. Have a great day Sandee, Zane and Little Bit.

    He should have gotten a cow. The cow would eat the grass and therefore no need for a lawnmower.
    Have a powerful sunny Saturday Sandee. See ya.

    He should have given her a hair dryer to clear the driveway.

    • May 30, 2015 at 12:48 pm

      Bwahahahahaha. I don't think even you would have done that to Mrs. Cranky. πŸ™‚

    heheheheh silly man- bet she gave him awash tub and washboard to do the laundry! Cheers!

      Probably Kathe. He's not the brightest candle in the box is he. πŸ™‚

      Sounds like she hasn't a sense of humor. (this is Russell talking.)

    • June 1, 2015 at 4:06 pm

      He's right you know. I wouldn't have done this at all. I would have hired a lawn service to do the mowing. Just saying. πŸ™‚

    Sarcastic humor is not always appreciated. I'm sure his wife will always look at his limp and a little smile will come to her face. He will always look at her toothbrush and it bring a tear to his eye.

    • May 30, 2015 at 12:49 pm

      Yep, you're probably right here. πŸ˜‰

  9. May 30, 2015 at 6:48 am

    A clever couple who where meant for each other. LOL

    • May 30, 2015 at 12:49 pm

      I'm guessing you're right about this. πŸ™‚

  10. May 30, 2015 at 6:56 am

    I think he got what was coming his way and the fact he can walk after it is a bonus πŸ™‚

    • May 30, 2015 at 12:49 pm

      A huge bonus Jen. πŸ™‚

    Guilt trips don't work on me either.

  12. May 30, 2015 at 8:35 am

    Lol. Sarcasm lives at our house, but my husband isn't limping… yet πŸ˜‰

    • May 30, 2015 at 12:50 pm

      It lives here too, but we don't hurt each other. Not good. πŸ™‚

  13. May 30, 2015 at 8:36 am

    Don't mess with mama is spot on, bless his heart! Hahaha

    Gentle scritches to LB, and big hugs to you, honey…

  14. May 30, 2015 at 11:15 am

    • May 30, 2015 at 12:51 pm

      Yep, he step into this one pretty deeply. πŸ™‚

  15. May 30, 2015 at 11:57 am

    and he's lucky a limp is all he'll have πŸ™‚

  16. May 30, 2015 at 12:13 pm

    Babe + scissors = kind words mean no injuries πŸ˜‰ Even my pet rock knows that 'un.

    • May 30, 2015 at 12:59 pm

      You're smart Mike and so is Seymour. πŸ™‚

  17. May 30, 2015 at 7:14 pm

    And maybe you deserve one! Heeheehee!

    • May 31, 2015 at 8:37 am

      Perhaps you're right. πŸ™‚

  18. May 30, 2015 at 8:57 pm

    Smart spouses!

    • May 31, 2015 at 8:37 am

      Yes smart, and one with a limp. πŸ™‚

  19. May 31, 2015 at 4:29 am

    Haha! Bet she didn't expect that XD

    • May 31, 2015 at 8:38 am

      I don't think either one of them expected that. πŸ™‚

  20. May 31, 2015 at 12:09 pm

    Doesn't pay to get smart with women

    • May 31, 2015 at 12:09 pm

    • June 1, 2015 at 8:58 am
