(She is pregnant) Hey babe, I quit my job and joined the Air Force today, we’re moving to Mississippi in a week.
(Two boys later) Hey, guess what? I quit my job, college and joined the Navy. I’m going to Norfolk, I’ll call you when I find out where we are going from there.
(7 grandkids later) Hey, wanna sell the house and live in a motor home?
Sherry is used to me coming up with quick, sometimes stupid, sometimes irrational ideas or decisions.(that is what makes me so exciting and sweet, LOL)
SHE is used to hearing me say and do crazy stuff.
Some ideas I DID NOT DO!
Once many years ago, we were traveling with Sherry’s sisters and their husbands. Our regular after Christmas week or two week get away. I got so inspired about Florida, I said when we get home, I am going to turn around and come back by my self and find us a place to live down here. This would be great, good weather year round. I did not do it then.
Another time on a weekend drive through the Helen, GA area, we saw the most beautiful house and sitting, I had ever seen. It was for sale. This home had a small creek coming down the mountain right beside the bedroom, over a water fall and into a pond in the front yard. I stopped the car backed up, got the phone number. We can buy this, if we sell everything, okay honey? “Sure,” she says, “It is beautiful.” I called, we could do it. But the fire had gone out. I forgot it, she knew I would, huh?
I really wanted to sail around the world. Sell it all and buy a boat and GO! SHE is very sweet (usually). This time SHE was quick to point out, SHE IS NOT getting on a boat and get out of sight of land. She also pointed out the small detail that I had never navigated or sailed in my life, she likes to point out minor stuff. But SHE was right as usual.
She won’t even discuss my ideas of Hot Air balloons and sky diving.
She says my absolute worst idea is to be “Buried at Sea”. Refuses to follow my wishes, points out that I won’t be here talking or arguing at the time. SHE will DO IT HER WAY!
I have had some excellent ideas, She just cannot remember them. Hahanah!
Now I have told you, hiking the Appalachian Trail is HER idea, not mine. But I like it, actually one of HER BETTER IDEAS. When I can figure out how, I will take credit for it. LOL
Thanks for coming by the LOG.
***** I like long hikes,especially when they are takenby people who annoy me.
