This bouquet, cut up in the canyon today, is now on the dining room table.
We were in a traffic line stopped for tunnel maintenance when I jumped out to cut a few blossoms,
Before jumping back in the car, I ran to the car ahead & offered the lady in the passenger seat a little sprig of scent.
One of my clients called me for an emergency repair tonight.
She had 32 young boys from a German soccer team at her house, along with coaches & a few parents.
Before addressing the repair, I asked my client to give me the names of three of the German boys who were all in the pool at the house.
I walked out to the pool & shouted to the three named boys to exit the pool "SCHNELL".
None of the about 40 people there had ever seen me & I had told my client to stay in the house & only watch through the windows.
So here`s some crazed looking person yelling at kids in the pool to get out ASAP. I turned it into a big laugh & in fun, I did get a thorough soaking after pushing a few of the kids back into the water.
After introductions all around, the parents & coaches calmed down, having wondered if the household had been invaded by a crazed person.
That`s why my clients love me.
I can always turn a gathering into a love-in
