Sherry is the Best, BUT there is a down side!
1962, Hawk Missiles on the Beach at Key West. Remember the Cuban Missile Crisis?
Some of us men have our own Missile crisis!
I have spent a few nights in the dog house. And MAYBE she had a right, just maybe.
My girl can tell you every birthday, of the kids, brothers and sisters, grands, great grands, in-laws and most out-laws. I, on the other hand, have trouble remembering what day it is or my birthday.
Years ago, when I thought I was a preacher, I was working on an old house that would be the parsonage for our NEW church. I was burning the early and late oil. Problem was one of those evenings was OUR Wedding Anniversary.
Another time when we were doing a lot of kids entertaining gigs. I had a call from a Boy Scout leader and agreed to do a joint meeting (or whatever they call it) but I failed to get the address. The last time we had done this, it was about 15 miles from our home. This one bit me, it was over 60 miles and I found out the day before. At the time I was building houses AND VERY BUSY!!! (REMEMBER THAT). BUT. but It just happened to be my lover’s Birthday. OUCH! Yep, I FORGOT.
One day, many years later we heard a preacher say, “Gentlemen, your wife’s birthday and your anniversary are important to that one you love. Now, pay attention, there will definitely be a test later. I can tell you exactly how to remember your wife’s birthday and your anniversary.” After a long pause, he continued sheepishly, “Forget them once!”
Sherry heard that too, since it had been a few years, we both got a laugh out of it. To my sweetheart’s credit, she did say she overreacted. BUT I KNOW SHE DID NOT, I know I was very insensitive and even at the time hated it with all my heart, BUT at that time it was too late. No time to get a card, flowers and an apology at that time wasn’t quite enough.
There are times the dog house is well deserved!

Info on this wonderfully created body of ours:
. Babies are born with 300 bones, but by adulthood the number is reduced to 206. Some of the bones, like skull bones, get fused into each other, bringing down the total number.
