Discharge Papers

Things a Hillbilly recovering from knee surgery CAN DO:

* let the goats out to graze

* work in the BARn

* shop at flea markets and auctions

* ride around in a Gator

* watch his teammates bowl in their league

* feed the livestock

* cook bacon and eggs and wash one pan


Things a Hillbilly recovering from knee surgery CAN'T DO:

* wash last night's dishes

* put supper in the oven to warm

* make the bed

* take out the trash

* straighten the Crocs he kicks asunder

* fold towels and washcloths and socks

* keep goats from eating the lilac bush


I need to have a talk with that orthopedic surgeon concerning his discharge instructions.

Hey, your husband will go to flea markets? Mine won't do that! AND he'll make bacon and eggs? How did you snag such a gem? What else will he do that you're not telling us?

Sioux,
Well, I don't mean to brag, but he will clean up vomit without flinching. And get rid of any dead possums that turn up.

Men will always find a way to do what they want to do, in spite of what needs doing. Doesn't matter if they are recovering or not!

Kathy,
I've noticed that pattern. To his credit, Farmer H DID wash some dishes on Wednesday. I don't know what got into him. Or if he just needed something to eat off of.
