The young wife and the snowplough 

While down here in Australia at the moment we’re battling fire and flood and constant high temperatures I’m wondering, if after the last week or two of winter weather and all the inconveniences it caused how many of my readers in the Northern Hemisphere will smile at this one

The Young Wife and The Snowplough

One winter morning a husband and wife were listening to the radio during breakfast

They heard the announcer say,

We are going to have 8 to 10 inches of snow today.

You must park your car on the even-numbered side of the street, to allow the snowploughs to get through.

So the good wife went out and moved her car.

A week later while they are eating breakfast again, the radio announcer said,

We are expecting 10 to 12 inches of snow today.

You must park your car on the odd-numbered side of the street, so the snowploughs can get through.

The good wife went out and moved her car again.

The next week they are again having breakfast, when the radio announcer says,

We are expecting 12 to 14 inches of snow today.

You must park….

Then the electric power went out.

The good wife was very upset, and with a worried look on her face she said,

Honey, I don’t know what to do.

Which side of the street do I need to park on so the snowploughs can get through?

With the love and understanding in his voice that all men who are newly married exhibit, the husband replied,

Sweetheart, why don’t you just leave it in the garage this time!

Fun Friday – the day we leave the troubles of the week behind

  3. Friday, yes still here, a little past noon, gloriously sunny and 7 degrees, but windy. But your place I suspect midnight is sneaking by, so only Friday for a little while more.
    I laughed at your story. Dato parking was a big and mysterious part of my childhood. I always wondered what to do when 31st of one month was followed by the 1st of the next, stay put or move the car twice ad midnight? I never actually saw what people did, but I suppose they stayed put 😉

  4. Been a while since I’ve said “Hi.” Good to see you’re being faithful with blogging. We’re in the grip of midwinter here, single-digit temps with a pesky wind. We’re grateful for a warm home, complete with wood stove and a fresh supply of seasoned logs. Happy New Year!
