I'm new here, well at least for posting. I took good ole ger's sugestions about THE LIST. Got a nice list made up and had it laying about for the hubby. Well, he comes in and looks at the first one and uses it for a basketball into the trash. By the time he was done with all of my lists he was shooting pretty good. Guess who ended up on the roof of the hay shed fixin it? And making some of the other things that were on that list. But, he sure didn't mind me using his power tools. hehe them are fun things.

Anyway I'm done harrassin now. Have a great day.

Well you've just added to the great quantity of country misery songs. You've just told your husband he is nothing but a human mule, and he makes you happy only when he does menial labor to suit your mood and personal interests.

I hope you two don't have children, because you two won't last long at all. Living on property doesn't excuse you from being an unconscienable jerk.

I'll cut you girls in on a deep, dark mens' secret about projects and lists. "If you MUST do something, NEVER do it too well!" (or they'll expect it every time)

Here's examples: If it obviously needs a slight trimming, poke a chainsaw thru there. If it leaks, redirect the spray with a non-sealant like duct tape or dogchain. Instead of new hinge screws, try wrapping the whole garage in barbed wire. Now granted, you'll never settle down this way - in fact the best part of this practice is you get to travel - don't know how many new houses and wimmenfolks i've staggered up to over the years. And offer to help right away - they like that. :)

I live with him! Do not give up hope.
Try leavin' him sit in his newspapers surrounding
his chair for a month, or his peanut shells for two weeks, whatever. (Do not clean up after him).
I told my husband to fix the barn door as if we
didn't we were going to lose the whole darn thing
in a storm. Well, after ignoring my warnings 3
times, sure enough there went the door onto our
daughter's boyfriend's car. I sliced my finger
removing the door from the car as the wind took it. Then the wind blew it 20 more yards into the field.
(It was plain neglect on his part, and I
hope a lot of you wonderful fellows on this board
never let things go until it's way Too Late.)

Them month old newspapers is for future reference and the peanut shells is for added traction. I agree with ye on one thing, don't clean um up they are supposed to be there. 8^)

Ron/PA    Posted 10-23-2002 at 07:42:50       [Reply]  [No Email]
Burrhead, Please be a little considerate, lay the papers down, and put the peanut shells on top of them. They are easier for her to pick up that way!
you know we're gonna pay for this!!

I always just throw the peanut and pecan shells in my spit can.

One of my sons was telling me how tuff it is on him now since he aint single anymore. They been married a little over a year.

I laffed til I was crying about it. He was trying to pick my brain like I had an instruction manual on wimmin.

He was all worked up cause that sweet gal snaps at him sometimes and his money won't spred thin enuff to do everthing they wanna do. That was when I lost it and had to bellyroll.

WallSal55 ... You know Burr and Ron/Pa    Posted 10-23-2002 at 07:57:51       [Reply]  [No Email]
You think so much like my husband, it's scary!
I do think he likes the decor of all those month
long newspapers, and the objects he leaves laying
on top of them for me to pick up.
Another scary thought, is I asked him what he reads first in the paper, or what is the most interesting, and he answered "I dunno". After
a year's subscription, he finally figured out
it was the sports section that was most interesting.
