Paddy the painter
Paddy was in a fix as his wife Liz was complaining about the outside painting once again as she expected him to do it himself to save money.
They had been in the house now for over thirty years and George had diligently done all the maintenance himself but now he was retired he thought it would be better if someone else did it for him.
"We can't afford it" Liz moaned so Paddy reluctantly agreed to do the work and as the weather was fine decided to do the gutters and downpipes and worry about the doors and windows later on.
He was very careful and took his time and spent a lot of time admiring the view over the next door neighbor's fence for they had a pool installed last year and the neighbors wife was having a swim each day.
So Paddy worked carefully at roof level each day and Liz came out to see how he was doing telling him she would make him a cup of tea.
"No hurry" Paddy called out I still have a lot to do up here and smiled as the neighbors wife waved to him from the pool.
