The old man shoveled the steady snow,
Hanging onto his retirement dough.
Ignored offers of help,
Back twisted with a yelp.
Makes that call, hearing a smug hello.

This one made me laugh aloud. Bravo, Denise! 💕🙂
I sense a heating pad in the vicinity of this one. Cleverly crafted, but I'm not sure he would agree, LOL.
That darned male ego! Very well expressed, Denise!
Oh, no! If he'd only parted with a few bucks and hired help. Nicely done!
Evocative imagery & Unexpected twist ending.
Oh my goodness. This reminds me of my mom who insists on gardening and hurts her back every time.
Cute twist at the end! Good one, Denise. 😊
Haha, this one's funny!
This is so typical of some people!
