We shovel for several hours and then she decides that the size of the rocks really requires a pick axe. A pick axe! I inquired as to whether or not she is a miner and then decide that I need a video clip of her using her pick axe.
I would also like to mention that the thing was heavy. She lost it momentarily and sent me scurrying around the yard to find it for her and when I found it I did think to myself: This pick axe is freakin' heavy. I would get tired using it!
As Mother's Day approaches, I just want to say: Grandmummy, you rock! You give all of the women in our family an ambitious example of life in the later years and I only hope I can live up to it and be an equally ambitious example for my grandkids.
Perhaps I will take up chain sawing in my 90's?
