Joke of the Week

As an attorney in a major New Mexico law firm, I have many colleagues who work long hours. However, the reputation of one of my partners’ workaholic ways even extended beyond the office. He not only had to leave work early one day because of a medical problem, but was also told by his doctor to stay home until the end of the week. My colleague grudgingly agreed to comply. In the middle of the week, our receptionist received a call for him. She announced that the partner was out of the office until Friday.
"Good," the caller said. "That’s all I wanted to know." It was my partner’s doctor.

How to Kick Your Own A$$

So this is a sorta before picture of our new garden space. I wish I had thought about taking a picture earlier because this does not EVEN do it justice. This area was filled with grass and it took the ENTIRE family about 4 1/2 hours to clear it out. We did that on Saturday. This is Monday morning as we are preparing to till it (I'll post what we did on Sunday coming soon). Terry is literally shoveling #$%@.
But....a thing of beauty is a joy forever. Just look at that new garden! I can't walk upright, but hey, we will have some fresh veggies come end of summer. It really doesn't look like much, but this took me HOURS to complete. It took me a lot longer than I expected. This garden has been about two years in the planning phase, so it is great to see it finally become a reality!
The reason we started on this side is because no one wanted to clean out the pool. It SEEMED like a daunting task. However, after doing the garden, the pool is going to be CAKE!!!
