Mmmmm Wouldn't You Know!!!

Today, a friend's wife said to him, "Honey, get off your butt and fix that gutter downspout! And, I want it done before the end of the day!"
Well, as you all know, at my age, my friend, and most our friends, are retired and do have the time to address such "Honey-do's"..So, he invited some
of us neighborhood buddies over to help with the project. One is a sheet metal fabricator. One brought his welder. One brought beer and  Nachos. One brought a grill and burgers.               
Took us about 6 hours, and 30-40 beers, but we got it done just as we finished off the last of the beer and burgers.  As usual, the wife is still not happy!  Can't understand, cause all us guys love it! Personally, I cannot wait for rain!!     Mmmm  I just bet he can't!!

What Can I Say?

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
