The Deck Rules

Snivel. Intransitive verb.

1. to run at the nose

2. to snuff mucus up the nose audibly: snuffle

3. to cry or whine with snuffling

4. to speak or act in a whining, sniffling, tearful, or weakly emotional manner

My deck area is my sanctuary. It is the place I go to in order to unwind at the end of a busy and long day. As a matter of fact, other than during bad weather, my deck IS my home from spring through fall.

I don't go RV'ing, I don't go camping, I don't go to a cottage by a lake somewhere. But I do go to my deck. It is the one place I go to escape. I guard my deck space religiously. Sure, you're welcome to come over; I'd appreciate the fellowship. But if you do, please remember my one rule: No Sniveling. Most everything else is fine, but sniveling goes against my deck religion, so don't.

If you find that you cannot help but to snivel, you may just find me pointing to the new door mat at the edge of the deck; just saying. So the choice is yours; I'd love the visit, but ...

Have a nice day J
