He told me he was washing up the fireplace chimney.

I got beach house last week, and my husband was soot from head to toe.

I asked what he had been doing with his time off.

He told me he was cleaning the fireplace chimney. I knew both of us had a chimney sweep that cleaned the chimney, and I could not figure out why he was doing it. He told me the fireplace chimney wasn’t hard to clean, but I begged to differ… From the looks of him, he was looking up when the soot broke loose. I was upset he may have inhaled some of the soot. I asked him to please let the chimney sweep wipe the fireplace chimney from now on. He was taking the man’s job. I knew my husband was bored with retirement, but I would be joining him at the end of the year, every one of us had plans for travelling next year, but that wasn’t helping him now. I told him he should go back to the Heating and A/C company. They were constantly looking for mentors. He could also go to the college and see if they need Heating and A/C teachers for their Heating and A/C classes. Our kid thought this was a good proposal when both of us approached him. He said he could use Mom as a trainer and he knew the college was looking for teachers. I knew my husband wished he had waited until I retired to hand the Heating and A/C company over to our son, but what was done was done. There was no turning back. A week later, I got beach house to a husband that was whistling. He was going to spend the week with a new Heating and A/C specialist, and the following week, he was starting his position as assistant Heating and A/C teacher at the local community college.
