Fun Times

He Did/ She Did

He went on a hot air balloon ride.

In the dawn light, over the breathtaking Arizona desert one January morning.


She shoveled snow that made her children’s play climber look midget sized. (that’s about 3-4 feet of snow piled up there.)

He took in the splendor of the Grand Canyon.

She did laundry.

He went to one of the biggest car auctions in the world and saw Elvis’ Cadillac.

She shoveled some more snow. Those are camping chairs under there. Still doubting my 3-4 feet of snow?

He spent a week drinking, lounging, adventuring, wearing shorts and being hot and having fun with my her dad and brother.

She wallowed in the depths of despair because the 3 foot deep snow let the rabbit get at the top of her apple tree and they ate the only apple producing grafts that were left.

She also swore. A lot.

He came home.

She demanded a blood sacrifice and penance.

Which he is still serving.

How was your week?

    If I wasn’t so stubborn and put the apple tree in the enclosed backyard, I wouldn’t have this problem. I give up. We protected the bottom of the tree where it was damaged last year but how the hell do I wrap up the entire top of a tree?

    I should have set snares like Survivor Man. Though I would have ended up catching my own kids lol.

    Is the moral of the story to travel together?

    And so sorry about your apple tree. I’ve been keeping an eye on things here, wondering if the rabbits would have to resort to whatever they can get above the snow. That really sucks.

    I think it is time for her weekend off…. lets say siping coctails in some very remote location. You know if you just let the snow be he would have to shovel it to get in 🙂
