home ‘n’ a ha-ha

Sometimes there’s so much to say that one says nothing.

Such is the case in my home (as well as work, albeit to a comparatively far lesser degree).

Home is currently:
degraded
challenging
in transition if not upheaval
difficult
unrested
in portions unhealthy

It has shifted dramatically in the past week. That’s all I can and/or am willing to disclose.

+ + +

Because who’s harmed by a ha-ha now ‘n’ then?

A successful rancher died and left everything to his devoted wife.

She was a good-looking woman and determined to keep the ranch but knew
very little about ranching, so she decided to place an ad in the newspaper for a ranch hand.

Two cowboys applied for the job. One was gay and the other a drunk.
She thought long and hard about it and when no one else applied she decided to
hire the gay guy, figuring it would be safer to have him around the house than
the drunk.

He proved to be a hard worker who put in long hours. For weeks, the two of them worked, and the ranch was doing very well.

Then one day, the rancher’s widow said to the hired hand, “You have done a
really good job, and the ranch looks great. You should go into town and kick up your heels.” The hired hand agreed and went into town one Saturday
night.

One o’clock came; however, he didn’t return.
Two o’clock and no hired hand.

Finally he returned a round 2:30, and upon entering the house he found the
rancher’s widow sitting by the fireplace with a glass of wine, waiting for him.

She quietly called him over to her.

“Unbutton my blouse and take it off,” she said. Trembling, he did as she
directed.

“Now take off my boots.”

He did as she asked, ever so slowly. “Now take off my socks.” He removed each
gently and placed them neatly by her boots.

“Now take off my skirt.”

He slowly unbuttoned it, constantly watching her eyes in the firelight.

“Now take off my bra..” Again, with trembling hands, he did as he was told and
dropped it to the floor.

Then she looked at him and said, “If you ever wear my clothes into town again,
you’re fired.”

    No, no, no. This was meant to be a stable, healthy place for a while. So sorry things are headed downhill.

    @trayflow – We’ve repeatedly witnessed at this blog the impact, to the extent of an entire redirection in course, that an individual’s actions and choices can have on another’s life. So it is, so it continues.

    @capra – “I rage at the general unfairness of it all…” – as do I.
