Fellas, what is up with women now-a-days? Winter's approaching and a few days ago I was informed by my lovely wife Jane, that she would no longer shovel the driveway out when the snow hits! :shock: Well, I was dumbfounded!!!! I turned 55 this year and my better half is not yet in her 50's, what's up with that? I explained to her in no uncertain circumstances that I would then have to divert precious Bee money to the purchase of a snow-blower. She said "Fine!" So I set about finding a good used one and found one for $300 on kijiji. The one I bought is an 11 horse with a 31" cut, a bit of a beast, but hey, I always say go big or go home!!!! I unloaded it in the driveway yesterday and proudly showed my wife who seemed rather disinterested. Anyway, I told her that the only thing wrong with the deal was that it did not come with an operators manual, but that I would be more than willing to show her how to run it! I have get back to the dishes now, I have the stew for tonight's supper in the slow cooker and I'm pretty sure there is laundry to do. (Lest any of you think this is a joke, I can asure you that there is indeed a snow-blower in our driveway and I do have supper in the slow cooker).
