The BackyardToday Jon came over and did some cleaning up in the backyard. When he was done he was quite proud of his work.
Jim had been gone the entire time so once he came home I took him to the landing and showed him the view you see here and asked him my favorite question. "Do you see anything different in the backyard?"
This is a question I have asked him many times over the years. Only the last word of the question changes.
Jim looked at the yard carefully for a while and said. "The green table has been repaired" I told him "No". He thought about it for a little more time and said "You moved the birdhouse". Well, yes it had been moved, but that was not the change.
Do you see it?
Jim and I have been living here in the winters for 21 years now. Mom laughed and laughed when I told her the story. Then she asked, "Does Dad know Jon was here?" I had to tell her yes that he knew about the change.
