There’s been a suggestion that I write more often. So, that’s nice feedback, and I guess I’ll try to do it. Since we got a decent rain finally, I’m not spending quite as much time watering. All the Rose of Sharon popped back like it had never been withered on the edge of death. The magnolia has some new little leaves, which has to be a good sign. I’m still concerned about the dogwood, but I guess we won’t know until next spring on that.
I just spent some time with another kind of spring – the one in the oven door. Everything’s okay now, after a set back the first time I tried to repair it. I was getting used to working around the little step ladder I had to use to prop the door closed, but it’s a lot more efficient without it. And my wife says the absolute last thing I need is to be any more inefficient.
She wasn’t at all alarmed when I told her two women had proposed to me yesterday. She said, “They must know you’re already married. You’re wearing a wedding ring.” Then she asked how old they were, what they looked like, what they were wearing. Then she said she bet they were with their husbands when they made these proposals. Which was true.
She just had the first day back at school. I always pack her a nice lunch.
