Hot dogs all the way (and Hot Dog!)
Today was a success. On the trip we were able to talk and we revisited our youth, I love that. She was one pretty girl in that long pony tail. What brought it up was thinking of our sons and grandkids and how I had always wanted my sons to be as happy as I. They have been happy at times of course, but overall divorces tend to hamper a lot of happiness.
Sherry and I have had a few rough rows (mostly my fault that is said seriously. You ladies know we boys can be a pain). We have been a team and always worked out the kinks. This girl can lay one of those special kisses on me and I melt! Did I tell you, she is a great kisser? Even in her late 70’s that girl is a super kisser. She says I taught her (he pats himself on the back, but not sure why!)
(The start of the best life ever, monthly salary $72)
Anyway, back to the trip. We checked in early and chatted with several veterans who were there. One old dude, 89, tried to steal my girl! We had a lot of fun. While I was in with my good looking doctor, Jennifer, Sherry chatted with Old Joe. She had a good time and said his life was interesting, I do not doubt it.
Dr Jennifer reprogrammed the implants. She said, “You are max’d out of the left ear, but still have some room on the right for more volume. I also tweaked the noise reduction program. You are good to go.”
I walked back out into the waiting room and Joe had moved over beside Sherry and I called out loudly, “Hey leave my girl alone, you cannot have her.” The whole waiting room got a big laugh at these old folk who are old enough be their Grandparents.
We said goodbye everyone and headed to “Jimmy’s Famous Hot Dogs.”
Jimmy sells ‘Hot Dogs, All the way!’ For you that do not know, it is a wiener in a steamed bun with onions, mustard, slaw and chili. We ordered 3 HDs, lemonade, coke and fries for $9.95. It takes Sherry back to our youth when we enjoyed Hot Dogs all the way.

Then the clincher. On the way home I said Jennifer said she tweaked the noise reducer. I have never had one that worked, and I tried it. IT WORKED. The road noise was gone, Sherry sounded funny but I could understand her better. HOT DOG!
My first car,
I lost my license once and walked to Sherry's house to see her and sit on the porch. After dark we got a lot of kissing done. I tell her, "You know I walked to your house, but I floated home on a cloud. LOL
