Thankful Thursday

I’m thankful that hubby and I laid his mother to rest on June 20. She was 96 when she passed and she was so very tired. Everything she wanted for her funeral we made sure happened.

I’m thankful that on the following day hubby and I took care of all our final arrangements. What greater gift to your family than taking that expense off their backs along with all your wishes. Mother did such a great job that we decided to follow her excellent lead.

I’m thankful that I’m finally feeling better. Hubby got sick when we were in Portland and when we got home I finally got sick. It was the worst cold I’ve ever had in my life. I had no energy and all I did was cough, cough and then after that I would cough some more. I was exhausted because of lack of sleep. I don’t get sick often, but this was The. Worst. Cold. Ever!

I’m thankful that Seymour the pet rock and his sidekick Element are here for a visit. Mike who resides in Colorado decided to send him back to California. I’m pretty sure that Judge Sandstone is going to be looking for him. We’ll be protecting a fugitive, but protect him we will.

What are you thankful for today?

The Downspout

Today, a friend’s wife said to him, “Honey, get off your rear and fix that gutter downspout! And, I want it done before the end of the day!”

Well, as you all know, at my age, my friend, and most of our friends, are retired and do have the time to address such”Honey do’s”….

So, he invited some of us neighborhood buddies over to help with the project.

One is a sheet metal fabricator.

One brought his welder.

One brought beer and Nachos.

One brought a grill and burgers.

Took us about 6 hours, and 30-40 beers, but we got it done just as we finished off the last of the beer and burgers.

As usual,the wife is still not happy!!

Can’t understand, cause all us guys love it!
Personally, I cannot wait for it to rain.
