    Exclamation I need a really big favor from one of the Lounge Ladies

    You can draw straws.

    I put my wife on the plane to the horse show today and she will be gone for about 19 days.

    I need one of the Lounge Ladies to post daily reminding me of the things I could be fixing.

    Among them are - fixing that crazy sprinkler in the front yard, repairing the entire drip irrigation system, putting the wire cages around the Maximillian Sunflowers, rebuilding the roof of the pergola, cleaning out all the weeds and elm trees along the east side and replacing the gasketed screws on the steel roof before monsoons begin.

    I don't need to be reminded of the obvious stuff - feed the dog, feed the horses, clean the horse pens, water the gardens/dog/horses, answer the phone, make the bed, eat/shower/trim nose/ear hairs, etc.

    So if one of you (perhaps you could share the responsibility) could post each day, say around 11AM, pointing out that those things aren't fixed, it would go a long way towards making me feel like I haven't been abandoned.
    You'd be better off with a netbook, they do everything better.

    Fix the sprinkler.

    Fix the irrigation system.

    The sunflowers are drooping...care you going to stake them?

    You know the pergola roof is bad, right?

    Weed the side of the house you bum!

    You know what happens when water hits my head from those rotten gaskets? You get hit on the head, and it won't be as soft as water!

    Step 1: print out the list you JUST TYPED YOUR VERY OWN SELF
    Step 2: post it on the refrigerator (or maybe the computer screen)
    Step 3: LOOK AT IT DAILY
    Step 4 : Do 1 (one) item daily
    Step 5: when item is complete cross it off the list (draw a line thru it, you may use a pecil OR pen)
    Step 6: repeat the next day until all items are complete.
    "When it shall be said in any country in the world, my poor are happy; neither ignorance nor distress is to be found among them; my jails are empty of prisoners, my streets of beggars; the aged are not in want, the taxes are not oppressive; the rational world is my friend, because I am the friend of its happiness: when these things can be said, then may that country boast its constitution and its government." -Thomas Paine

    You forgot this:
    Step 7: Leave completed list on the fridge for the Mrs. to see when she comes back. Receive congratulatory secks for being a good boy while she was gone.
    Step 8: Run before she realizes you didn't do any of those things and just reaped the rewards.
    Step 9: Profit?

    Is there a Coles notes version of this?

    .

    Way too much work. I'd have to add 3 items to the list just to do what you're suggesting.

    Men are hopeless. Nothing I didn't already know.

    Fellow Women:

    This experiment in letting them run things is clearly not working.

    Cats just don't feel safe on a moving bicycle, no matter how much duct tape you use.

    Yup, I've geeked out and started a blog: www.adventuresinprocreating.blogspot.com

    I'd help, but I'll be installing tile unless I forget again.

    I thought The Breeze had volunteered until this. We need more lownge conspiracies, that'll totally spice this place up.
    Good ideas by chance, not design.

    Um, that sounds like a really bad idea. Here's a better list.
    1. Ride every other morning
    2. On the mornings you don't ride, sleep late.
    3. On the days you go to work, don't work on the house.
    4. On the days you get the day off from work, ride.
    5. Feed the animals, they'll stink up the place.
    6. Only wash clothes when you're all out of clothes.
    7. Afternoons are for watching TV. The Tour De France starts on Saturday.
    8. 48 hours before she comes home, clean the house.
    9. Don't fix anything or she'll expect that from you on a daily basis.
    10. Show me some love with some Rep!
    With people like Peter P. around, I am done posting on this website. Mean people have driven me off after 9 plus years. Good luck newbies beware.

    Is that because you changed the filter, or because she gave up? Inquiring minds and all...

    This thread makes me sad.
    Oh, I've been in the film business for a while, but I just can't seem to get one in the can.

    O-kay, who'd like a banger in the mouth? Right, I forgot, here in the States, you call it a *sausage* in the mouth.
