A White Plumber in My Garden

Last Saturday I spent most of the day bent over on my knees planting my garden. I was not ashamed that I was wearing my old jeans and had to keep hitching them up like a plumber with a beer gut. My husband reminded me to pull my pants up once after I asked him to hand me the trowel and he did so by placing it ever so gently in my coin slot, cha-ching! Jerk.

I must say I don't have time for glamour when I'm busy digging in the dirt. I don't care what I look like or what anyone else thinks about how I look. I'm busy planting dadgumit!

However, I was humbled when I was downloading some pictures and found that one of my children took this of me, probably while I was ignoring their request to be fed.

Are you all blinded by the white? That portion of my back was fried to a nice red crisp. Yep, I had a crescent shaped burn on my plumber's butt.

April, I'm sorry but I laughed so hard at this... My kids give me such a hard time for "gardeners crack". walking up behind me and yelling "Watch out, crack KILLS!". But of course I'm a guy so hey, If I wasn't sportin a little crack I wouldn't be working hard enough right? maybe I should look into the Utilikilt? (Yeah right!! I'd be worrying about showing a lot more than crack!!)

p~ Utilikilt is a local company (Seattle) and there are a lot of guys around here who wear them. And I must say, even the most average guy looks hot in a Utilikilt. I can't comment much to going commando in one though... I suspect it would make gardening more breezy.
