The power mower was broken and wouldn't run.
A lady kept hinting to her husband that he should get it fixed, but somehow the message never sank in.
Finally she thought of a clever way to make her point.
When her husband arrived home one day, he found her seated in the tall grass, busily snipping away with a tiny pair of sewing scissors.
He watched silently for a short time and then went into the house.
He was gone only a few moments. When he came out again, he handed her a toothbrush.
"When you finish cutting the grass," he said, "You might as well sweep the sidewalks."
The doctors say he will probably walk again, but he will always limp.
