: To cold outside and I've got outside work
: to do.
Too cold here too but I refuse to do any work, inside or out. At 87, I'm RETIRED!!!
I started working for pay at 16, worked until I was 57 when I took early retirement. I was qualified as a public sector arbitrator in Ohio and worked at that 'till I moved out of state 10 years later. I've cleaned a few kennels since then and walked a puppy or two but those are "labors of love" and not work imho.
When my wife complains that I won't help around the house, I tell her that "I take you out to eat often so you don't have to cook. Plus, I bought you a dishwasher so you don't have to do dishes." And, as I've told you many times, "Hire a cleaning person and I'll pay the bill." In addition, I do my own laundry! And that's it - as I've said, I'm RETIRED!!! Harry
