Mow the grass

This seemed fitting in light of my "Jungle"

The power mower was broken and wouldn't run, and the wife kept hinting to her
husband that he should get it fixed. But, somehow the message never sank in.

Finally she thought of a clever way to make her point. When her husband arrived home one day, he found her seated in the tall grass, busily snipping away with a tiny pair of sewing scissors. He watched silently for a short time and then went into the house.

He was gone only a few moments. When he came out again, he handed her a toothbrush. "When you finish cutting the grass," he said, "you might as well sweep the sidewalks."

The doctors say he will probably walk again, but he will always limp

C'mon Pop, get blogging! I'm missing you!
I've passed you on the stats counter by the way!
I was looking at blogger's site today and you can now load pictures directly when posting but it's a bit of a convoluted path, you've got to do it from the editing window and click create then find the picture icon.

Hi Marcus, trust you are well little vegemites down at Busselton now?
I will get a bit more back into blogging soon, as I've nearly caught up with my 2 months away.
I'll also have a look at the picture posting you mentioned.

Carolyn and I are much better. Zac is home and has had the flu too,from before he left Tassie. He's finding it hard to shake so we took him to the doctor today to try and get him ready for his flight on Monday. Jordy had a bad week last week, stomach pains and glandular fever but is a lot better this week.
Sophie's up and down, physically and emotionally but she's enjoyed having Zac here, they've gotten along really well.
Paul is fine.
