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.

A Night Under the Stars

On Sunday we took a little break from the work (ya know, to keep the Sabbath holy! :) ) and decided to turn the life guard pad into a true pad with artificial turf. Because we put the pool and the playground in, Terry capped off the sprinkling system so it wouldn't run underneath. It meant that I had to HAND WATER the life guard pad! I know, boo hoo. He also had to manuever the lawn mower in to mow it. I won't repeat the stream of expletives that usually come floating out of our backyard during lawn mowing day. Anyway, we figured, if miniature golf courses could do it, so could we!
The kids thought it was so great, they asked if they could sleep outside on the new turf. This was their first time sleeping outside.
Of course, this ain't your daddy's sleeping outside! They HAD to have their t.v. Remember when we had to watch the stars for entertainment? I hope they watched those too!
Don't look at the weeds in the picture, I haven't gotten to the pool yet! Here they are all cozy. I was up all night waiting for them to come in. I didn't think they would make it all the way through the night.

When I woke up about 7am and I hadn't heard anything, I snuck out to see what was up. This is what I found. You can't even see Topher. They had a great time and they truly broke in the new back yard!
