To Plow or Not to Plow


Telling OS (other son) that he would do the plowing for our gravel road and the new neighbor's driveway, the Pres disappears into the darkness every time it snows.




Wearing his one piece polartec hunting suit, he vanishes quickly although I watch just to be sure that he returns safe and sound.

Settling in his well-worn, burgundy leather chair with the TV remote close-by, he has a big glass of chocolate milk when he comes in.




Before we met, the Pres used to plow for the town of West Hartford, CT.  He enjoyed it! What did your hubby/wife do before he met you?

My Shug was an electrician for and Industrial/Commercial construction company. But he wanted to be closer to me and our town has little Industrial construction, so he now works as an electrician for Chrysler. But he is building our house, so he's back in construction in a smaller way. He loves to build!

When my husband was a teen he plowed to make money in winter and mowed lawns in the summer, then worked for a construction company sweeping out houses, plowing after snow storms and scraping paint off windows, sweeping street gutters and storm drain clean out. Now, he has a crew that does the same thing, and my son at 17 has taken over some of the plowing.

Bob has always been an auto mechanic and i met him at Sears when i worked in the garage as a greeter... he retired from that at 62 and is now 77 and does all kinds of things. he loves to cut the grass and mess around in the yard....

Sandra said...

forgot to say, he hates all things cold and snow... he threw down the snow shovel in Dec of 69 and told his wife he would never pick one up again. they put the house on the market and moved to FL the spring of 1970 and he has never seen snow since. he is complaining bitterly today be cause it was 49 when we woke up. he loves all things hot

glad he's still getting to have some 'fun'.

-chuckle- He did a lot of things.... Because we met when he was 14 and I was 11. We both did HS and college and he became a pharmacist and spent time in the Army, and I became a HS teacher....

Btw, he is still a working pharmacist, at 80. A few hours a week, in the family drug store. I'm glad he still loves, what he did for a living.

Of course, he also loves being as semi-retired as he is. So he can devote time to his woodworking, repairing items, old truck, old car, etc.

Myself, I got married and never taught. :-)

My husband was and still is making light bulbs. Believe it or not the shop he works at only makes incandescent bulbs and they have tons of orders right now.

my relative loves getting out his big old tractor & plowing away at the snow. one time we came out as a kid to plow our drive way & he was working on ours ... almost done. it was such a shock & surprise. snow is a great way to bring the neighbors out & about to chat. catch up & enjoy the day. ( :

We are lucky, and the mailman who lives across the road comes over and plows our driveway so we can get out...and he refuses to take a dime for his time, gas, and efforts. We are SOSOSO fortunate. You really did have some snow to get plowed... way more than we have had. Love your pictures and your picket fence. So pretty.

It probably is kind of fun.

My hubby loves plowing out the neighbors when we get a snowfall of any kind! Just what country neighbours do for one another. Love the snowy pictures ! Stopping by from Friday Fences.

Sooner or later the snow has to be plowed...but I'd make it later!

Looks like he still has the skills to do a good job! It's good to stay busy! My hubs Jer was a director for a big corporation...lots of stress...so glad he retired early and still enjoying life. We are so blessed.

I love how you call him the Pres! Hubby was working at the CBS factory when we met. You know the one where you used to join and get so many albums free just for buying so many more. He had been out of the marines just a year or two.
