Yes, we got a new gardener
Hendrix and Buddy are with us Tuesday to Friday each week now that Joanne is back to work. It's only for about 5 hours each day and they are, to put it mildly, no trouble at all. In fact they are so entertaining it's a joy.
Today it's been glorious and I signed Hendrix up to do some gardening for me. He did such a great job of it I've waived the probationary period and made the gardening position permanent. Wages are Breakfast on arrival, drinks and some playtime during the period and lunch before he gets picked up to go home.
He seems happy with that.
