Came home from work and found my neighbor

mowing my lawn. Husband is down with the flu, I'm in the process of moving my 93-year old Great Aunt and I started back to work last week after being on Workers' Comp. for 4 months. Needless to say, the yard was getting a little ratty. He was mowing his yard and cleaning up the leaves in his own yard and he did our yard too. There is nothing better than great neighbors. I think he needs a nice homemade chocolate pie.

1. Well hell, if I'da knowed chocolate pie was on the table

I woulda mowed your lawn too!

And I HATE mowing the lawn.

But I love chocolate pie more than I hate mowing lawns.




Full disclosure: I really woulda paid my lawn guy to fix up your lawn and happily took the credit and the pie.

2. It's an old family recipe too.

I make several different pies for Thanksgiving but I always make 2 chocolate pies because that's what disappears first.

5. Would you be willing to share?

Or do we have to mow your lawn? I'll walk your dogs or pet your cats!

3. Nice to have a man around.

 

(Recently divorced and "lonely." If you get my drift.)

4. After I divorced a second time

there was NO WAY I was ever going to get married again. Wanted nothing to do with it. Uh huh. We've been together for 14 years now.

PS: Welcome to DU from an old timer.

6. A hard man is good to find

I think that's sort of how that saying goes.

7. As a divorced male,

well, I'm enjoying it, and despite being a little lonely at times, there is no female charm that could draw me back into a serious relationship. I just like being free, and I feel good helping others along the way if I can. I'd like to find to find a companion, but she'd have to be one like out of Kerouac novels, and sadly I don't think they exist anymore. (at least not around here)

8. Keep a copy of that comment, Joe

'cause you never know.........

Mr. Dixie and I both had the same attitude for many many years....right up to about 15 years ago when we met.
Online, no less, quite by accident.
