Ha.  Funny guy.  I am awaiting knee replacement surgery so she has picked up 
the slack of what is usually a team effort.  And this February has had more 
than enough snow, after such a mild December and January.

I like the last one, very peaceful. But what impressed me most was the 
fourth one. If I asked my wife to shovel snow while I took photos of her, 
she would whack me with the shovel. This is of course hypothetical; the only 
time we have lived in a place with significant regular snowfall was Buffalo, 
but we did not have a car there and lived in an apartment building, so never 
had to shovel snow.
