    Default Housekeeper

    Ken just recently got a big promotion and a raise to go with it. So he has hired us a housekeeper to come every two weeks. Today was her first day! She worked her tail off and did a great job. Rosa, is her name and she was so sweet to hat even our grumpy little dog loved her. Dolly was warmed up to her in about 30 minutes.

    They say dogs are great judges of character!

    Rosa has worked for a coworker of Kenís for about 5 years and she was given a great recommendation.

    It sounds as though you have both found a keeper.
    It really is quite difficult to build an ugly wooden boat.

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    How long did it take you to clean the joint up before she showed up the first time?

    ^ I heard a story about a woman that would clean before the house keeper got there.

    A while! But it still took her longer than I inspected. See cleaned everything!

    Clean and tidy are two different things. The first is useless without the second, and the second can only be done by the ones who hire someone to do the first.
    A society predicated on the assumption that everyone in it should want to get rich is not well situated to become either ethical or imaginative.

    Quite right! We kept our house tidy, but today it is both clean and tidy!

    My late partner, Cynthia, decided that she was in need of a "cleaner" as she was not as fit and healthy as she had been..
    An old Greek gentleman across the road was married to a lovely Philipino lady and Cynthia asked if she knew of anyone who might like a part time cleaning job. She did! This lady not only did a great job but always left something tasty on the dining table or in the fridge. After a while it became obvious that we had been adopted pretty much by her family and friends. A great experience that continued until Cynthia died.
    Bald, ugly, not too bright but incredibly sexy in an unattractive sort of way....
