Our pergola is very nice unless it isn’t. The isn’t is the fact that algae grows on it. A certain member of our family doesn’t like it, especially when we have friends up for happy hour. It really isn’t all that hard to clean the algae off with our pressure washer, though one does get wet and the arms not being what they once were tend to become tired.
No Tom Sawyer needed here, she actually wanted to take turns using the pressure washer. We have always been willing to help each other or do what is traditionally considered to be the other spouse’s jobs. Marriage is so much more than just a eight letter word.
