This is from a rose variety called Diana, Princess of Wales. Springtime in the hardware business is busy. The boss has asked me to work four full days a week up from my usual two full and two half days. Terribly inhumane if you ask me. Things in this blog represented to be fact, may or may not actually be true. The writer is frequently wrong, sometimes just full of it, but always judgmental and cranky

Nose to the grindstone, Merle!

Don't work too hard, though.

Really, why?

When I was at the gym Thursday I saw an unusually high number of commercials for gardening and home-improvement stores. It never occurred to me that home improvements are seasonal, but I guess it makes sense people would wait until the cold passes. (Though where you are, that's probably not such a factor!)

Better watch out, Merle. You're on the verge of being a full-time worker bee again. I thought you were supposed to be retired?????

I'd cheerfully work four full days.

That's a lovely rose.

Do you get paid overtime for the extra hours? :)

Can't kill that work ethic thing, can you?

What a perfect name for such a beautiful rose!

And I think everyone is on the home-improvement kick, around here anyway. We are; we decided instead of going to Puerto Rico where we usually go for vacation, to finish things in our house and get a puppy. Staying at home is the new going out and about!
