Good morning crew,
Since we got rained out last weekend and couldn't get any work done on the garage, the wife and I both took this afternoon off from teaching to get whatever preparations done that we can before this weekend. I have ol' Mason coming over to help paint on Saturday and if we have to waste time on prep work the project is not going to get done. At least not in one day.
We have about 8 hours of chipping, scraping, patching, priming and sanding to do, and we only have from 4 this afternoon until it gets dark. Call it 4 hours.
So this is no time to goof around. It's nose to the grindstone time.
Which is why I was more than a little annoyed when I got an email from the wife earlier today that said, "Since we both have the afternoon off for once, want to meet me for a beer on your way home from work?"
Isn't that just like a woman? No sense of priorities.
So I had to put my foot down. I responded; "You know how much work we have to get done. There is no way, NO WAY, we can have more than one."
I don't like being the bossy one in the relationship, but sometimes she gives me no choice.
Laugh it up,

One day, an employee received an unusually large paycheck. She decided not to say anything about it.
The following week, her check was short the overpayment she received the previous week. So she confronted her boss about it.
"How come," her boss inquired, "you didn't say anything when you were overpaid?"
Unperturbed, the employee replied, "Well, I can overlook one mistake - but two in a row is getting unacceptable!"

"What's your father's occupation?" asked the school secretary on the first day of the new academic year.
"He's a magician, ma'am" said Little Johnny.
"How interesting. What's his favorite trick?"
"He saws people in half."
"Wow! Now, next question. Any brothers or sisters?"
"One half brother and two half sisters."
