At a school working bee yesterday.
All the others there were mostly the sorts who work 6 (or more) day weeks- some had come along between milkings to do a couple of hours, some had brought their own machinery- trucks, diggers, chainsaws, mowers.
All had given up a fine Saturday afternoon to do the annual school yard cleanup, and it was a good turnout.
I DID notice that none of the non-working families were represented there. Not one of them could give up a few hours to splash a bit of paint about or rake up leaves.
I guess Saturday afternoons are too precious to them who only have seven days a week off...
