Prove it!

    The  Woman and I have been married for better than 34 years and during that entire time she has made one afgan after another. Countless miles of yarn consumed and her method is "Crochet."
     Well, not long ago I told her "that after watching her crochet for so many years, I could probably do it."
So the next thing I know is she gives me some yarn and a needle and says "Show me".
     Bear in mind the length of time she has been doing this compared to the time I have spent on it and understand that she is a little better at it than I am. I have completed one scarf and am half way through the second one. I gave the first one away as soon as I finished it.
     Also please excuse the poor picture quality, as I used the cell phone to photograph it.
       The second one will be just like the first one.  I will try to get better pictures when the next one is finished.
     Y'all have a good day now, Ya hear?

Valentines day is coming.

Not only is Feburary 14th my sister's birthday, it also seems to hold some special significance to a whole lot of other Women and Girls. Myself, eh, it is just another day but I think a husband could truly forget an anniversary, (which I've done) and get by but do not forget Valentines day.
     That having been said, I feel real safe in telling the whole world what My Wife will be recieving on that day, because I don't think she has ever checked out this site. Too bad for her because she could have advanced knowledge of  "What's in the Box".  No it isn't chocolate or pretty rocks on a chain. I shop at electronic stores.
     She will recieve a turntable with USB connectivity, with input jacks for alternate materials. Vinyl, cassette, CD's, you name it.
     She has a pile of old 45's that she wants to save so this is the way I'll do it.
So unless one of Y'all tell her in the next week, my secret is safe. Here is a picture of my wonderful Wife.
Well folks, Y'all have a good day now, You hear?
