Men are so stubborn...

(continued from Facebook)
the grass around the sprinklers is tall again and the lawn starts to brown.

Yard guy tells my husband that the tall stuff is because of the bird feed falling out of the feeder. Huh? Yard guy has to come back an extra time to trim down the tall grass near the patio, $40.

3 weeks go by and now the yard guy thinks he needs to have a weekly service vice twice monthly. Grrrr.

So my husband told him "NO" so then the yard guy says that the sprinklers might be too low and he will install taller ones if we want; $$$. I had one word for my husband "Really?" If he had listened to me weeks ago, we'd probably have a putting green out there.

When you lose your cell phone.....

I drove a friend to a doctor's appt today. While I was waiting for her to be seen, I went down to the lobby to check my mail and messages. I noticed that there was a phone on the bench next to me; nobody else in site.

I picked it up, thinking maybe it was a toy. Nope, it was a real phone, "Jimbo's Phone" was on the front screen. Maybe he left it here on purpose since there is a "No Cell Phone" policy with signage all over the rest of the medical facility.

Nobody was working in security or at the volunteer desk so I started going thru the guys Contacts list and calling his 'friends'. "Hi my name is Linda. Do you know Jimbo?" I got "No" or voicemail from the first 3 people I called, ncluding "Home".

Finally on the 4th try, I got somebody who knew Jimbo and they called Jimbo's wife at work. About 10 minutes later Jimbo's phone rang.

Hmmm, should I answer it? "Hello, this is not Jimbo" is what I said and the guy on the other end started laughing. It was Jimbo. He was relieved to find out that he had not really lost his phone. I left it at the pharmacy at Kaiser for him to pick up later.

Does your cell phone have an emergency contact number in the contacts list?

My life has changed in the last couple of years - some bumps, I retired from quilting, and then I moved to Texas. I'm anxious to see what new adventures await me in the next phase of my life.
