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. 🙂 Great story. I hate to say it, but I love his idea, but the last sentence is also hilarious.

    Have super happy Saturday Sandee.

    "Huge hugs!"

    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.
