Varied And Sundry

Yesterday, I took a walk on the wild side and deleted 3453 emails without even looking at them first.  Yup, just threw caution to the winds and emptied the ol' inbox.  I might regret it by next week, but it sure felt good at the time.


Now if only there were a "delete" button I could push to empty the old food out of the fridge...



Susie begged me to let her wash dishes today.   There's a sucker born every minute, eh?


Larry threw his back out rebuilding our front walk a couple of weeks ago and he is still limping around.  He tried to justify his premature decrepitude by telling me that one of our neighbors has a sore back, too.  Ever the supportive spouse, I didn't hesitate to point out to him that the gentleman in question is 15 years older than Larry is.  


Maybe I'll buy Larry an "Old Fart" baseball cap for his 43rd birthday.  Only, then he would wear the darn thing, just to annoy me.  Forget it.

  1. My dh forbids me to talk about the times he throws out his back. The one time I actually witnessed it happening, he was putting on a shoe (or was it a sock?) so I know it's not really his fault. I blame heredity. (Also, this is writing and doesn't count as talking.)

    So... those e-mail messages... were they recent or as old as some of my 2,604 unread messages?

  2. For the first time ever, my husband started to do a job and ended up hiring someone else to do it. His reason--it wasn't worth hurting my back. This happened just days after his 49th birthday--and I was impressed that he's finally matured to that point!

  3. The delete button. I've never regretted that option.

  4. You're walking on the wild side deleting while poor Larry walks with limp.

    It's amazing how much kids want to do a new chore. Laura was SO excited to be in charge of watering the plants. For two weeks. That is, each plant, watered twice, and then the drought set in.

  5. I realize that it was probably quite refreshing to delete all of those emails, however, you might have deleted something important.
    Seriously, you never know when a Nigerian prince will contact you and want to give you large sums of money.

  6. Heal well Larry! (I've got a spare cane for you.)
