After shopping most of the day with my daughter
in Coeur d' Alene, we pulled in to my driveway.
I notice the neighbor's garbage cans in the
ditch. I looked over to where oura would have been
but they were gone. I thought, good, the King
put them away.
The next morning I went out the back door and
there was one of our garbage cans, minus
lid in the back yard. Then I noticed the other
one was behind my car, near the garage door.
I said something to the King and he said. Yea,
I got them as far as the garage. I just looked
at him and ask why he didn't put them in the
container that was 5 feet away. He replied.
"I got it to the garage, at least I did that much."
But I asked why not the rest of the way. "I was
cold, it was windy and I only had shorts on."
he said. I shook my head, and said, so you
walked 35 feet with them, but didn't do the
last 5 because you were cold? "Yep" he said.
"But at least I got them that far for you."
See in his mind, I usually bring in the garbage
cans, (come to think of it, I am the one who
usually puts them out there too). So he did it
Oh, why would I not get that. After all, this is
the same guy who will get up from the table,
take his plate and put it on the sink counter,
just 2 inches from the door to the dish washer.
And when I ask about that one time, his replywas 'well, I took it off the table.
