I have a ton of stuff to get you all caught up on, but I have to share my little story first.
Last night, as I was reading through our emails (they sometimes pile up a mile high, you know?), I caught a message from Boss Man’s friend, who just so happens to be an equipment dealer. He was getting Mark some information regarding the upgrade that they talked about for our payloader (it’s a machine that Mark uses to clean the manure out of the cattle lots, move junk, sometimes snow, etc.).
Well, an upgrade was all news to me. We have a ton of house projects that we need to work on, but I didn’t know that he was thinking about changing some of the equipment. And, truthfully, it’s not real surprising, since I’m usually the last to know!
I apparently was feeling pretty cheeky last night, because I decided to pay my dear hubby back by replying to the email. And this is what I wrote:
After consulting with my beautiful wife, I've decided that to spend more money on farm equipment is futile. I shall spend the rest of my days trying to please her exquisite tastes, flying to the corners of the world, taking trips abroad, and showing her the seven wonders of the world...of which, she is the eighth. Sorry, but I will no longer have time for trivial things, such as cattle, hunting or just wasting time away visiting with others.
I followed with:
Yeah, well, I guess I’ll pass this message on to Mark.
Lesson of the day: Perhaps we should discuss major purchases…you never know who will respond to the email!
