An old saying, the last person on Earth turn off the lights.
Well at our house the last person ‘up’ makes up the bed. (usually me!)
Last person out of the shower, wipes it down.
Last person into bed makes sure the computers are off, charge phones and internet unplugged (Usually me, but sometimes I forget).
I never liked the old saying, ‘the wife or husband is the last person to know’. Although it is true a lot of times of infidelity.
I like to be the last person to hug the grandkids.
The one case where the last person rule does not work, is cooking and washing dishes here at the rolling home. When Sherry cooks, most of the time I try to wash dishes. When I cook, I also try to wash dishes. Methinks that is only fair, for the many times over these 55 years she has done for me.
Cousin Ken went to hear former President Bush a couple weeks ago. He was relating to me that Mr. Bush said the first evening after they go back to Texas, Laura fixed them a good meal, just the two of them. When he finished he told her that was great, then went in and lay on the couch. In a minute or two Laura came in and asked if he felt all right, he said he felt great, no pressure. Laura then said, “ come on in the kitchen and let’s clean up, you do the dishes.”
“Honey I am a former president of the USA, you expect me to wash dishes?”
“Yes, new domestic policy, you wash, I dry.” He said he did.
I heard Mark say not too long ago that he had told someone,”EVERY morning, growing up, mama had a cooked breakfast. Biscuits, grits, eggs & bacon (sausage) or pancakes. We never had cereal.” He was right.
Back then, I did share cooking supper sometimes, but it was mostly Sherry, she has been a great mom and wife. I am one lucky dog.
I think I am her last man!!! LOL
Thanks for coming this way.
The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
That is a fact since the Gov’t does not earn money!
What about this car?
This old ‘32 Caddy could have gassed up at the station above.
