IF he does, I hope you have done a very good rendition of the songs.

He just got out of the Marines and hasn't anything else to do right now. It has been a great father son project. Anyway, we are welding on the bed and my wife appears with the hose to her vacuum cleaner in her hand. It's clogged up with animal hair close to the end with an "L" fitting on it. I mess around trying to put this and that down it to unclog it but nothing will fit. Finally, I use a flexible piece of rubber fuel hose and jam it down the vacuum hose and it feels like it loosened the hair jam. I cup my fingers around the opening of the hose and blow in it to see if it is unclogged. Almost immediately my son practically falls on the ground laughing. Unbeknownst to me Joyce was looking down the other end of the hose. Her glasses and her entire face were covered with dust. Her eyes weren't even visible. This was not a case where a person could even think of trying not to laugh. My son and I were doubled over with tears running down our faces. Although I couldn't see Joyce's eyes her frown told me that she didn't think it was so funny as we did or maybe I had done it on purpose. I mean, anyone who would play Pale Moon Arising for call to worship....I told her to go look in the mirror and then come back with the camera. We didn't see her again but every ten minutes or so the picture of her face would flash before our eyes and we would start laughing all over again. I'm fortunate that she has a good sense of humor. She needs it being married to me. A better person than I probably would have said, "Aww Honey, I'm sorry."
I knocked over my beer laughing

As soon as I saw her,standing knee deep in the lake, I new right then she was mine. We were both as green as could be & warned (correctly) not to do it -but I did anyway. At our boarding barn, we have progressed together & hit big challenges and will continue to do so, but that's okay. Grace & I do many things- albeit none perfectly. We do Western Pleasure & Trail, she finally has her lead changes, we piddle around and chase the cows, we run poles & barrels & jump 2'3" only for fun. Even joined Drill Team at the ranch-(she was fine- I was terrified !!) I'll be 53 this year but can't fathom how that happened. She is my "Amazing Grace" !!

ACH. Good Lord, what a day. My day off so I only worked about 8 hours.
Did go have lunch at Olive Garden with my son, though.

I loved catching up on the latest posts!

I love all of your happy marriage stories. There seems to be a trend amongst people of complaining about their spouses, while never trying to figure out/fix the problems. I am so pleased to see you all appreciate your other halves.

My hubby is a turd at times, but I still love him.
He builds a good fence, too.

Oh for sure, mine is too. But then so am I, usually more often than he is!

All of my wifes problems she tells me start with the word men, or was that me. Never mind, I know i'm the cause anyhow. But, she would never swap me. Well I don't think she would. Think i'll go and cook her dinner, better to be safe than sorry.

Laugh. Brad can only manage to cook a frozen pizza, and that's an effort.

There are times when I have to catch myself. I've had a bad day with the kids and I am wound up tight. Brad will come home, and I find myself just snipping at him, it's for no other reason that I am just annoyed, have no patience left and am just snippy.

I wish I didn't do that, but sometimes I do. I try hard not to do it, and I think being aware of it does help to lessen it.

I wish I were a better person at times. But then he brings home his work stress too and I sit looking at him like he has three heads because his issue seems like nothing if I had to get in between a kid fight or whatever that night. I guess no one is perfect.
