  1. Just a few corrections and clarifications to your list.

    #'s 1 - 3 : I did all those, not you. You lounged in bed while I fired up our house.
    #'s 16, 17, 24 : You exhausted any alternative methods years ago ... don't want to know what else you have planned!
    #32 : And, leave them all over the floor and dinette couch for me to vacuum up later.
    #39 : And, you did so early, @ 2:00 pm. It's now 5:00 and I am just now having my first vino blanco.

  2. Hey, if you guys didn't get up so early in the morning you wouldn't have these problems! The cottage sounds like more fun even at 20 below and the shower is indoors. Karen
