Everything You Own Needs Attention

adam in gardenAnything and everything you own will more than likely need your attention at some point.

If it breaks you will need to fix it. This is what happened to one of the sprinklers this morning, it made me think that the old fashion simple way with a hose might be easier.

If it doesn’t need fixing it will need cleaning.

If it doesn’t need cleaning it will need to be insured.

If it doesn’t need to be insured it will need to be picked.

And on it goes.

Think twice before buying, whatever it may be, it will need your time, money and attention.
