The honeydew list has begun and I attacked with great energy. So far I have fixed 3 basement windows and began the arduous task of scraping the garage in preparation for painting. My incentive to take this task on immediately was the purchase of a new paint sprayer that offers me another opportunity to salvage an already diminished respect  that my wife has for me in operating any power tools. Her memory is far too long as she often refers to the severe lashing I took several years ago from a rebellious and vengeful weed eater leaving more scars my ankles than were administered by the slave traders. She has eased me in by my able use of a power screw driver and staple gun. I also learned that the rapid use of a paint scraper creates such an irritating noise that she begs me to quit. The paint sprayer challenge will begin this weekend, I SHALL BE VINDICATED!
