    FYI..my dh had an extra thermometer and was bored......yes, he put the thermometer on our driveway about 12:30 or so. The thermometer read 117 at that point of the day. Oh, and our driveway is on the west side of our house.

    Yeah, but these are underground pipes which sprinklers are attached to. It doesn't take forever but it's a down on your knees type of repair.

    Our 100+ temps are comin' tomorrow for the next week. We live in the desert but 100+ is too hot. Glad our a/c works just fine! Stay cool, if possible.

    That was a mental picture, reading about the gusher after you ran over a sprinkler head! My DH won't even let me near the lawnmower -- the one time he tried to teach me how to use it, it was going so fast I was running after it holding onto the handle (I'm short). The darn thing almost climbed the fence as it's self propelled. Our neighbor nearly bust a gut laughing at the entertainment I was providing them. DH kept yelling "let go of it" but I couldn't hear him over the mower noise....

    My Dad used to pick up my coffee cup, wash it and put it away - all while I made a trip to the bathroom! Not finished with the coffee - of course!

    Omg

    How funny . My hubby did the same thing. Mine was laid out on a porcelian (?) table top . Almost flat and the knot-head decided to hang it over the porch railing. I sent him to the barn for his own protection. But I did do it again. And this time he was fore-warned. hehehehe

    Have you ever noticed how they "help" at all the wrong times???? DH thinks he is doing me a favor but I hate it when he does. "If I need your help, honey I will ask for it". I say it every day. I know he means well but it is never what I want done or how I want it done. ERGHHHHH!

    Kinda like when my DH was gonna clean up my sewing room by tossing out my "big" bin of scraps. He couldn't understand why I was saving them. LOL.

    Sounds like something my Dh would do. The only time he picks up/throws out something is if i was saving it for something. I leave it out be cause i know he won't touch it! Wrong again. And if he comes in my sewing room to clean, i will just tell him that he has plenty of things of his own to clean- like the garage, for example. ( people are always taking his stuff and not putting it back!) ha ha! hope that your cutting mat comes back to life! And God save us from helping husbands!

    There are times when I think I just might like one of those DH's again. But then I read one of these events, laugh, and decide I am just fine living alone and not having someone in my stuff.

    It's still laying out this morning. It was on the rock overnight when it's gotten a bit cool (high 70's). Has two big bumps in it.

    My son put bleach in the wash of a quilt that belonged to his girlfriend. She didn't kill him. Bless her heart.

    My DH does these things to help me as well. He's always trying to "help" in the kitchen. I haven't moved anything in this kitchen for 10 years, and he still doesn't know where anything goes. My DD moved back in recently, and after 2 weeks knows where all but 2 things go. I don't let him in the sewing room except to help with hanging shelves etc. He wants to "help" by throwing things out.
    He's hard to live with, but my life would be very dull without him!
    To make lots of quilts, is to have lots of scraps, and I do, and I do.

    I did have to laugh - and sympathize with these posts!

    My lady friend ran into one of the water pipes with a golf cart at the RV park we live in - the water pressure must be pretty good - the water shot up about 25 feet! This was about 1 am Christmas morning! These pipes stick up out of the ground about two feet. The owner was really quite mellow about it as he repaired it!

    I can RELATE!!! Only we have lived here for 20 years and he still has no idea in which drawer things belong. I TRULY think that is because I have done it all for so many years....now, when he has to pitch in---DH doesn't have a clue!!!!!!

    I am rolling on the floor......to funny and I'm crying'. My DH must be related to yours, cuz he would do the same.
