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.

    Ha ha I couldn't help laughing out loud when I saw the downspout. I wouldn't mind having this in my garden. The guys did a great job!

    • June 28, 2016 at 4:44 pm

      The guys did do a great job. They worked very hard. πŸ™‚

    I, too, laughed out loud. That is so funny and so wonderful. We want one too. Good one Sandee. Sandee, you and Zane have a fantastic day.

    That would have been funny to me a year or so back—but with my surgery, well you know!

    Love it, Sandy. Our six-year-old granddaughter would like it too, but I won't share it with her.
    Mrs. Jim said she had a laughing spell, I'm not sure what led up to it. But the ending was, "You know, … ," trailing off with a two handed series of back and forth watering-like motions similar to what your downspout might perform.

      Glad she got a giggle out of this. My girlfriend sent me this and hubby and I laughed out loud. πŸ™‚

    If gals had done the job, I just can't comprehend.
    Have a great day!

    This is priceless. The only thing missing is a Koy pond for him to hit.

      Oh that would be a great touch. The Koi pond that is. πŸ™‚
