Greetings: Today is mine and my wife’s 32nd wedding anniversary. We’ve had a pretty full life together so far. We’re hoping to have another 32 together if we don’t rip, tear it, or bend it in the middle. We’ve got a big night on the town planned: I’m taking her to McDonalds for a Big Mac, and she’s taking me to Lowes to buy me a gallon of mineral spirits!!!!!! She said ” I guess you need a little tool ? I said—” That’s ok, hon, I’ve already got one”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I might survive!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ok Rick, so what are the mineral spirits for? – you old devil.
Try one of those Angus burgers at McDonalds, they are pretty good, it’s my aniversary this month and I’m getting Sandra a Sawsall for cutting her pastry (and which I can borrow). We’ll probably dine out at a convenience store later in the evening when they are discounting unsold food of the day. She is getting me a blue halter neck dress supposedly for when Grizz has his party.

Congrats Rick,all the best to both of you, and make it a great anniversary.

Roger: I’m not telling what the m.s. is gonna be used for. But I have plans! lol. You’re wife ain’t gonna let you nowhere near her pastry cutter. What’s hers is hers,and she don’t that blade dulled—she probably gets enough of that. You just can’t work with a dull blade. Keep your blade sharp at all times!!!!!! I hear they got pretty good left-over grub at the 7-11’s, if you get there early enough to beat the crowd. I hate standing in line, even for a meal!!!!!!!!!!!!. Question about the new dress? Can you fill it out, or will stuffing be required? Thanks again, Roger. We’ll have fun, even if we have to set and look at the only redlight in town.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

McDonald’s???

After 32 years, I’d think you could spring for something fancy. Shoney’s or Denney’s maybe?

Charlie, I can’t afford anything more than Mickey D’s now. I just got back from my hardwood suppliers( he’s too close—about 1/2 mile from me) a bit ago, and left him over $350.00 for a load of cherry, maple, and oak, and some walnut. Shoneys—Dennys? That out of the question now> lol lol.

pete: Third time is charm, so maybe you got it made now. Just keep plugging along. Thanks for the kind words. Afer 32 years together, she knows to bring me my hotwater bottle for all the aches and pains.

Rick,
As far as the dress is concerned it will be made of Spandex so it will fit any form. Additionally 2 of my meds contain female hormones and believe it or not I have started to bitch! You are lucky to have a red light in your town, in mine to sign that states the town’s population is a chalk board – last person out erases the board.
You can see that some woodworkers are doing well and have money to splurge on trendy and upmarket gourmet restaurants like Shoney’s and Denney’s. It’s taken us 32 years just to get to 7-11.

Roger: Readin’ this and LMAO. Spandex, huh? My wife tried to buy me a Spandex girdle one time, and was gonna pass it off as a back support——yea right, honey!. She don’t know it, but I got a pair of Spandex panty hose I wear when I fish tournaments in the cold months. It’s about time to wash them—how am I gonna get ‘em past her? Good thing she works, cause I need to do laundry!!!!!!!!!
Roger, I knew you from Texas—- so am I. Born and bread. I lived there for 34 years till I figured out the best thing out of Texas was Interstae 40> No—I still got kin there, and so does the wife. I come from Lubbock, the same town as Kent Shepard and I don’t miss the dirtstorms!!!!!!!
