Back off Ladies He's all Mine!

A couple of weeks ago my husband took eldest sprout to the circus, a simple task you say? Not in my husbands world! It all started when my husband came running through the back door in a panic, you see he has this one pair of jeans which are his favourites, he refers to them as his 'good' jeans and likes to wear them everywhere. Well that day he was wearing his 'good' jeans while unloading a trailer full of firewood, hence his jeans were filthy and he was devastated that he would be unable to wear his 'good' jeans in a dark circus tent where no one would see him.. .go figure.
He came up with a brilliant idea, I would wash them on a fast cycle and dry them in the late afternoon winter sun.....I saw problems with that but he didn't. So being the dutiful wife that I am I washed his jeans while in the meantime he rigged up a rope and pully system across the backyard where he thought he would capture the most amount of sun.
With only one hour to go the 'good' jeans were still wet so I suggested a hair dryer, he liked this idea and set off to get the dryer while I went off to sew. I never heard him return from outside with the jeans so I looked out the window to see what was going on.
Well there he was in the backyard wearing a blue singlet, rubber ducky boxers, black socks and double pluggers with the industrial length extension cord and the hair dryer blowing away for all its worth. Yep he's a keeper my husband, a pure gold moment!
I bolted for the video camera and now have many amusing minutes of screen time. We also now have a new clothes dryer :)

lol!, thankyou for the laugh Victoria. Isn't it funny - my hubby has 'good' jeans too - maybe I should try this and get myself a new clothes dryer too : )

That is hilarious! Men think they are sooooo smart but sometimes logic just passes them by.

Funny story - no pics though?
Hope he had a great time at the circus with no damp crotch :)
Should that be crutch or crotch...I'm having a blank
