It’s Not All Mary Poppins

The Silver Lining

You’ve heard me complain a little about the dust and the noise and the general chaos of the roadwork that’s been going on all summer. I just thought I’d show you that there have been compensations. Not so bad to open your door to this at quarter past seven in the morning!

  1. Oh, Yeah! Cool Tractor!

    Oh. Wait a minute.

    You meant the construction worker, didn’t you?

  2. You think they could have hired at least one female university student to stand out there in short shorts doing — I don’t know, just holding a shovel and looking ready for action like this guy.

    It’s discrimination against the men who live on our street. Unless you happen to be gay, as several of our neighbours are.

  5. Was he holding a snickers bar and a diet coke for you when you opened that door?

    Nice eye opener.

  7. I could actually bypass the coffee pot each morning if I had that to look at…

  8. I’m sorry, were you saying something? There seems to be a photo of a hot man next to your text and it is a wee bit distracting . . .

  10. Matthew: See? Something for everybody round here.

    Q: I’d noticed that! Not a single female on the crew. There was a female inspector here one day, but you missed her. The gay guys and I thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, however. (If any of the other women on the street were noticing, they weren’t saying anything.)

    Aginoth: Indeed. He can plow my furrow any- er, never mind.

    SNMartha: Yup. Just sit on my little chair on the porch, sip the coffee and take in the scenery.

    kimmyk: Nope. He was pretty health-conscious (as his physique bears out). I know, because they would take their morning coffee breaks on my front porch!

    Hausfrau: Don’t you mean “Yummmm”?

    kristen: Uh-huh. Whatever gets you perking, and it doesn’t have to be the coffee. It’s all about yer motivation, sweetie!

    Susan: Uh-huh. And just try having the real thing on your front steps and see how well you can focus on your work. Thankfully, my work likes to watch the activity out there. They can watch the diggers, and I’ll watch the digger.

    crayonz: Aren’t they nice? He’s pretty juicy all over.

  11. We have construction going on in front of our house — but that is NOT my view. Instead, I’m looking at bunch of guys who look they could use a little Jenny Craig.

  12. Eeww. Any plumber-butt going on, too?

  13. Not too sure. I try to keep my eyes on the tractor!

  14. LOL. I’d be doing the same thing!
