To my friends thought I would send you some humor. Im keeping a journal, of things I am not allowed to do anymore. Or things not to do when your spouse is post surgery. Lets see...................... 1. I can drive a commercial vehicle, for a billion dollar company, but Im not competent enough to operate, a Cub Cadet. I am not allowed to mow the lawn. And I do not know how to do it properly even if I could find the keys, according to him.......... 2. So I thought I would sneak the weed whacker out and give it a shot. a. Do not weed whack in shorts and sandals, especially next to a gravel road. b.. Do not weed whack the prickly pear cactus (this is big) 3. Apparently I am not competent enough to change my oil in my truck although I did it for 20 yrs bh, (before him) So I have to take it to a "service station" 4. No whacko relatives for at least 4 weeks. 5. No drunk stumbling visitors who tend to fall on the victim, who still looks like a road map. 6. Do not think you are smart enough to water the garden, because you wont do it properly. 7. do not introduce foods hes never seen, you have to sneak these in. 8. Do not yell at the dog for getting in the way, she is just stressed, and further it is his blood pressure medicine to have the dog by him. 9. Do not complain about TV Land, comedy central, Andy Griffith, Lucy, or Pinks. 10. Do not wake him with the vaccuum cleaner, but clean the house. Dont wake him by washing dishes, but dont leave them in the sink. You see this is the stuff he does more than me, and I simply cant do it, so at least I know his recovery is going well!!! We were in the middle of new windows, walls and insulation in the rear of my house. Til my son or some other competent being come along it will remain undone, Because I surely cant do these things!! Well cool, when hes all well, I will go back to driving a truck, and looking pretty, his words not mine. No more dishes, cleaning, or mundane chores, he can have it all!. Aspenleaf how do you do it? Patients are worse than customers!! Take care all. Tooner!!
