Marty's Joke of the Day

Marty's Joke of the day is an internet column that I've written for more than 5 years.
I tell humorous stories about my "sweet wife" and raising our 4 young sons, named #1, #2, #3, and #4.
After 5 years of story telling, in August of 2005, doctors found a brain tumor in son #4.
Our focus here has changed little as we still try to find humor in our lives.

Digging a swimming pool

Tuesday, June 14, 2005

For the first official week of summer, it’s been hard trying to get
the boys on a schedule other than play computer games all the time.
But, I think we’ve got a good start. I think it was two summers ago
that the boys were really into the movie ‘holes’. Son #2 was so
into it that he wanted to dig himself a hole, just like in the
movie. It had to be the length of the shovel, and as deep as he
could make it. I let him dig on the back part of our lot (with the
weeds) and he dug a pretty big hole about a foot deep.

Fast forward 2 summers ahead; after the boys put a lot of their
allowance into a large swimming pool, they’re motivated in getting
it set up. The best place we could find was right over son #2’s old
hole. So he finally had to fill it, and he was none too happy about
it. (not about losing the hole, but doing the work...) His pile of
dirt is gone, so he’s had to find other sources to fill it, then
make a 15 foot circle as flat as can be. He’s complained a little,
but at least it gets him outside.

Enjoy today’s Jokes!
