ALRIGHT PEOPLE, LISTEN UP!

For those of you faithful readers who got so worried about my wife Marilyn when that young lady came for a sales call, I have a message. Really an analogy.
Marilyn didn't mind me meeting with this sweet young thing for the same reason she would let me stop at a Ferrari dealer in Kansas City. Even though I couldn't afford one payment and I certainly would never fit behind the wheel, she'd pat me on the head and say "you go look at your cute little car, I'll just wait here in this Dodge Caravan until you're ready to go home".

Marilyn and my hubba hubba see eye to eye, knowing what truly *is*. b Marilyn is one smart woman.
(Sorry to read you caught some grief with what I thought was a normal everyday post! BLogging opens us up to all opinions.) Interesting, my hubby took me to look at a miati this past summer. I didn't need to beg him. WE couldn't afford any car, but it was fun despite no HUNKY salesmen.

Cliff, your wife sounds like my kind of person! Security comes with wisdom and wisdom comes with security. My husband jokes and says that he is going to trade me in for two "20's." I recently turned the big 40! I laugh and say,"Ok, then find two you can keep up with and I will pack your bag!" Seriously, it is a long standing joke, and we know that we won't be "buying the Ferrari" either.

Marilyn sounds like a wonderful woman! We weren't worried, we just like to pick on you!! And if we didn't like you then we wouldn't pick on you!

Marilyn is your Ferrari; we all know that.

Every year we go to the beach. My hubby is wonderful......he let's me watch all the cabana guys set up the beach furniture every morning while I drink my coffee on the patio of the condo.

Last year he had a good laugh though - big tough gal did it all week.

Really took away one of the special treats I get on vacation.

How much seed corn can you fit in a Ferrari? Norma had a friend of hers that lived on a ranch in Montana and she bought a Corvette. When her friends asked why a Corvette and not a pickup (she lived about 20 miles out in the country on gravel roads) she told them that she was tired of hauling hay all the time and you can't fit much hay in a Corvette.
