RDG, you're telling me that the man who built and maintains everything to do with the house and 7 acres of property including apple, pear, and peach trees that he planted, a gigantic garden, taking trees down, chopping, and stacking them for years' worth of firewood, pruning all the berry patches, mowing the lawn, shoveling and plowing all
the snow, doing all the tending of the garden, picking and washing the produce, walking the dog for 15 miles a week, installing all things secure - a security system, a metal gate blocking off the back yard (pictured below)
, building all things himself - front patio, back patio, granite lamp posts, etc., installing drainage for the garden, re-laying heaved front patio sections, tending the bees, countless things with the tractor and bull dozer I'm not even aware of because, um, I don't have to worry about any of it, updating and improving the inside of our home (paint, installed wainscoting, refinished the floors...), and working and commuting 60 hours a week, is LAZY because I cut his apples up because he likes them that way
Anyone agree that this is a lazy man (note the bee smoker and white beekeeper suit he'd been using that day in the foreground and the black walnut tree he planted in the background in the lower level of the lawn that he terraced by himself)?
