Laa - Dee - Daa

On my hands is an empty space from time to time. Depending on how much I weigh you might see the gold ring lacking any stones. Or after I recently emptied my hands of Any Jewelry you would see two - count 'em two - nekk'id hands.
While on my wife's hands you will see stability - just like so many things you could use to describe my Bodacious wife - Her Stability - shown in many ways is well known. Check out her hands and you will see...
...two diamond rings. I think the only time she has removed either ring was to have them cleaned..la...dee...daa.....la..dee..daa....

Good Genes

I had to go to get a hair cut recently, and I had to ask the hair dresser to make sure that my gray hair showed after the cut. She gave me a very funny look, as she's the same person who covers up Nancy's white hair.

You see, I have a lot of hair. I could be an "after" picture on an advertisement for hair loss treatments. In addition, my hair turns blond after only a little exposure to the sun. What can I say? My mom was Norwegian, and I got those blond, Norse genes. So, I look younger than I am, and sometimes people get angry at me because they think I'm claiming to be older than the age they think I look.

That problem does go away if I trouble them to look at my hands. They do look my age, and I feel it every day.

Good Footing

Once, we had some lovely wood flooring in the kitchen and dining room. Then, we had what Nancy calls a "plumbing adventure", where the whole house was flooded about an inch deep. Not very deep, just deep enough to ruin the carpet (which was fairly new!) and the wood flooring.

So, to replace it, we went with some porcelain tile that looks like limestone. It's been a comfortable floor, not slippery, easy to clean and looks good. There is only one downside to it. Tile floors have no forgiveness for glass containers.

Do you have any idea how hard it is to clean up a bottle of olive oil? From the looks of things, Nancy didn't like it, and it was hard.

Hey, I'd done my part. I dropped the bottle.

Things We'll Never Buy

Nancy and I have been buying things this month. She got a netbook, and we got a new truck, and it's only the 6th day of the month. I suspect our spending spree has probably ended for now. It's made me think of things we buy... and things we don't, won't and can never buy.

So, what are things we will never buy? A Mother's Day gift for my mom, who wore one gift we gave her to our wedding. A Father's Day gift for Nancy's dad, so, no more golf balls. We'll never need baby bedding, as that's one thing that we'll never need. We have mixed feelings about that. A child would have been fun, once they weren't babies any more. Nancy says she thinks I would have been a good dad. We'll never know.

Some prices are too high to pay.
