Mister Fix-it

Yesterday afternoon, I was attempting to get the weeds out of our front flower beds.  My husband saw me stooped down and came over to investigate.  "What are you doing?" he asked.

"Weeding," I replied.  "Except the ground is really hard, and I can't seem to get all of the roots."

"Oh," he said, and walked away, into the garage.

Two seconds later, a sprinkler head popped out of the ground.  It was right where I was working.  I bet you can guess what happened.  Yes.  The darn thing sprayed my face!

"Hey!" I shouted, dripping wet. "Why did you do that?"

He laughed.  "I'm fixing it.  The ground should be nice and soft now, so you can weed better!"  

(Right.  Thanks.)

  11. I hope your shower cooled you off. I have a weed so big it has turned into a weed tree. I need to get an ax so I can cut it down or pour an entire bottle of weed killer on it.

    Love,
    Janie

    1. I found one of those in the back corner of our yard. I asked my husband to take care of it.

  12. Sometimes this small thing is a lasting memory. I think you enjoyed, wet though.

    1. It is most certainly a lasting memory - of yet another prank!

  13. This is something my better half would do and not think to warn me and then would be baffled if I wasn't entirely thrilled. Some are just too logical.
