Afternoon Smile...
A long day already, after sweating through the previous three days of my wife's second knee replacement surgery, battling the hospital staff, subsisting on lack of sleep, and the questionable fare their cafeteria put out for the enjoyment of the guests, bad coffee, and constant marching up and down the halls of this medical metropolis, searching for the 'Perfect' snack for the Bosslady. At long last, I manage to spring her from this paradise, and take her home, only to find the newly planted sod that I entrusted to my daughter had not been watered. Esconcing my DW in her chair, after the prerequisite duties, I turn to repairing what 3 days of neglect had wrought to the lawn. The South Texas sun beat down on my bald pate, causing me to pour water in torrents while I resodded the sad deathbeds, and watered, watered, watered, grumbling under my breath. Then I remembered. Life is good. My wife is back home, without complications, the grass will survive, in spite of all I can do to destroy it, And in spite of myself, I imagined the sun winking at me..yea, it did, because Mudcat49 welcomed a grandbaby into the world today. Life is indeed good.
