Not for my everyday gardening but definitely for getting ahead with
pruning, vine removal, and things like that. I do my own beds. Don't
care about grass so someone else can mow it. Leaves me more time for

Guilt is highly overrated. Don't think I wouldn't hire one in a 1/2 a second

if I could. I'd really rather have a house keeper though...............

Yeah, but I need the help because I'm too busy having fun other places! 
I'll give up my bit of guilt though, it is silly. Good thing I can laugh 
at myself.
