    Default reward

    Fred wakes up at home with a huge hangover. He forces himself to open his eyes, and
    the first thing he sees is a couple of aspirins and a glass of water on the side table.

    He sits down and sees his clothing in front of him, all clean and pressed
    Fred looks around the room and sees that it is in perfect order, spotless, clean.
    So is the rest of the house.

    He takes the aspirins and notices a note on the table "Honey, breakfast is on the stove,
    I left early to go shopping. Love you."

    So he goes to the kitchen and sure enough there is a hot breakfast and the morning newspaper.
    His son is also at the table, eating.

    Fred asks, "Son, what happened last night?"

    His son says, "Well, you came home after 3 A.M., drunk and delirious. Broke some furniture, puked
    in the hallway, and gave yourself a black eye when you stumbled into the door."

    Confused, Fred asks, "So, why is everything in order and so clean, and breakfast is on the
    table waiting for me?"

    His son replies, "Oh that! Mom dragged you to the bedroom, and when she tried to take your pants off,
    you said, "Lady, leave me alone, I'm married"

    That scary radio reappeared tonite, it was half-stuck in the clothing. Since, I had my own little tiny radio, I didn't dare touch it. Now, this guy came in, asked to be waited on, and I said, " no." He looked! I said, " what do I look like a salesclerk?" ( a lowly salesclerk) He started laughing. Soooo, after an hour, 600.00 dollars later, he asks if I was married, he said, " I see no wedding ring." I said, " where is yours?"

    I told him to put it on.

    That is a long time, I would had been married 25 just one month more. He always made me breakfast, he knew, I wouldn't eat if he didn't.

    This will make all the men here sick, lol. He used to make me a little tiny cup of tea everynight. If you think, he spoiled me, yeah. He was my buddy.

    Well I made ther tea last night and I do several times a week. no big deal, or anything any guy should be ashamed to do or talk about. Too many people live together today that just don't give a crap about each other. Then again, too many new couples break up too soon before they get to really know each other because they can't put up with others crap. SO, I guess there is some balance.

    People do move on quickly don't they? lol. They are married for a year, and it is over babe. Now, if it is just a matter of stupid stuff like, well, he leaves his socks and dirty underwear laying on the floor, whiskers in the bath sink, cap off the toothpaste, those are the things I miss! People aren't marrying either like they used to Bob. They are living together, longer and longer, I kind of really don't understand that, but, then, I am old. And, I don't judge what I don't undestand, that is just not right. I know it wouldn't be right for me. I look at it this way, if I am going to pick up your dirty socks and dirty underwear I want to make sure I get ALL the bennies, lol. We laughed together alot, and had alot of the same common interests. I don't know if that counts for a happy marriage. We were satisfied with little things in life. I loved our Sunday mornings. Since neither of us could make a decent cup of coffee, we would go to get a what we called, " delicious" cup of coffee from Mickey D's. I would tote along a piece of bread and we would feed the birds. There was one bird, a big black crow who was so polite. lol. He would sit across the parking lot ontop of a pole and wait his turn leaving all the other littler birds eat first. Then, he would walk over to our car. We loved him. We called him the, the Walking Bird. He only walked. He was cool. We would come home and head to our basement. Where we had a small table and a black & white Tv, there, we would drink our delicious coffee's. I would read him stuff from the Sunday rag. Even after nearly 24 years of marriage he would pat his knee telling me to come sit with him. And, I did. I was truly the luckiest woman in the world to have had that kind of marriage.

    One of our common interests Bob was electricity. He was an electrical engineer, much more advanced than moi, but, he always listened to my "version" of how to fix it.

    Oh, what a wise man.

    Could this expain the drop in marriages?

    Husbands and wives, take note: The phrase, "Not tonight, honey," could end up costing quite a bit more than a bruised ego and grumbled acceptance.

    A French wife sued her husband and won about $14,000 because he didn't have sex with her enough, according to Time.

    The wife sued her husband about two years ago for the waning bedroom activity over 21 years of marriage, and now the Nice, France, judge has ruled that a lack of copulation is indeed a violation of the marital contract.

    "A sexual relationship between husband and wife is the expression of affection they have for each other, and in this case it was absent," the judge ruled, according to the Telegraph. "By getting married, couples agree to sharing their life and this clearly implies they will have sex with each other."

    Of course, some men also take extreme measures in dissolving relationships.

    In 2009, a North Dakota man requested half the value of his wife's breast job when the two split.

    Erik Isaacson appealed his judge's decision to exclude the value of the procedure from the divorce case. The judge worried that if breast implants were considered as marital assets, the precedent would extend to other, more necessary medical procedures like root canals or even hip replacements, according to the Bismarck Tribune.

    No argument from Isaacson there: He also wanted his wife's Lasik vision surgery counted as an asset.


    One Egyptian woman, however, might have the most valid of the three divorce requests.

    According to Urban Titan, the woman had to bring her husband to court because he refused to bathe for their entire first month of marriage.
    The man claimed an allergy to water prevented him from maintaining proper hygiene -- and a doctor backed up his excuse.

    Though the doctor's validation of the water allergy made ending the marriage more difficult, the woman did eventually get to split from her husband. One can only imagine that she would not be complaining about lack of bedroom activity.

    Peggy, a highschool friend, sent me this, you will love it! so funny.

    How Latex Gloves Are Made

    Next time you use a pair of latex gloves when you're painting or crafting,
    you're going to smile when you think of this:

    A dentist noticed that his next patient, a little old lady, was nervous,
    so he decided to tell her a little joke as he put on his gloves.



    'Do you know how they make these gloves?' he asked.

    'No, I don't,' she replied.

    'Well,' he spoofed, 'there's a building in Canada with a big tank of latex, and workers of all
    hand sizes walk up to the tank, dip in their hands, let them dry, then peel off the gloves
    and throw them into boxes of the right size.'

    She didn't crack a smile.

    But five minutes later, during a delicate portion of the procedure, she burst out laughing.

    'What's so funny?' he asked.

    'I was just envisioning how condoms are made!'

    (Gotta watch those little old ladies! Their minds are always working!)



    Be afraid of old ladies!
    Be very afraid!
    They have been there and
    done everything!

    Okay, Peggy, I did the scary radio thing tonite. It was already playing when I walked in. Things were fine until, about 2 hours later. Before that it was fun, we ( the other store manager) were eating gummy bears, playing with the instruments, trying on clothes, acting like little kids, then, the TP counter walked in. It abruptly ended. The TP was actually mentioned, I was told I take too many Pee breaks. Pee breaks? I thought about this and thought, Pee breaks? It was added we all take too many Pee breaks. Well, since, I don't smoke, and they do, I will consider it not a Pee break but, a smoke break. I was thinking, give me a break, I got kidney stones. I got to drink alot of water, lol. I guess it is okay, to be a chain smoker. I don't undestand where they get the energy to be so miserable, and so unhappy all the time. It takes alot of energy to do that. She even said today, that she hates the sun. You hate the sun? I guess that is why she does the tanning beds. Which I would ease up on if it was me. Wonder if she hates the moon? I mentioned we had a full-moon earlier last week. I noticed a mathematical error in her paperwork, so, I sat it out for her to see. I was told 6 times, she would call cooperate in the morning. I told her, if I did that to my kids, they would tell me I am repeating myself. I should had left her mistake. But, you know me, fun to me is doing math problems. Like Pa Kettle. So Peggy, that was tonite. I was told, she would bring a roll of TP in tomorrow. I was left with, ( I counted them) lol, 10 squares of TP. LOL. Reminds me of Elaine from Seinfield. So, before I left, I took 9. LOL.

    One is left to wonder what he received for his $600.00, and if he was satisfied.
