Handle It Up

“What i don’t realize is actually how you are no longer actually a lot more neatly-preferred than you might be right now.”

Saturday was a laid back type of day for me, temperatures were compatible for a change, most everything that had to be done, was done.  So I took a little time to sit back and just take it easy, a change of pace, a nice respite.

Enjoy one of those “dog-days of summer” is what I think they are called.

Got involved in something on Discover Channel, The Moonshiners, a documentary about these boys who lived in West Virginia and made illegal whiskey.  Pretty interesting, so I settled in for a good afternoon of television watching and hopefully a little learning experience on my side of the country.  All went well, I sat thru each episode until about six o’clock and then when supper bell rolled tolled, I set the DVR to tape the last two episodes of the show.

No big thang.

At least it wasn’t until around 8 p.m., that night when the power suddenly went out and stayed off till something like 2 a.m. the next morning!  I don’t know how it is exactly that this always seems to happen.  I will set the machine and then somehow, the universe lines up against me and I do not get the data or the information that I was seeking.  It just seems so unfair.  Having watched five episodes religiously, dutifully sitting thru commercial after commercial, I was deprived of episode #6 and #7 the season finale.

This of course, did not make my day.

Saturday was also our anniversary, we celebrated another year together, the bride and I.  I suppose in this day and age, that is something to crow about, most folks do not stay the distance when it comes to matrimony these days in America.  The wife is wanting to go on vacation, and I asked her, “where is it you are wanting to go?” and she said to me, “somewhere where it is warm and we can stick our toes in the sand.”

Then she said, “What do you think?”

I just smiled and said, “well with the price of motor fuel these days, we would be better off to just turn up the heat in the radiator and put our feet in the cat’s litter box.”

And then, what I often refer to as, the discussion, started.

That is the way it often goes in life, gentle, sweet compromise.  Someone once said:  “Love what you are doing, until you can do what you love. Love where you are, until you can be where you love. Love the people you are with, until you can be with the people you love most. This is the way we find happiness.”

To be honest about it all, there are times in life when my wife just does not understand me.  I can accept that, it is all part of the grand plan I suppose.  When I get down and out about it, I just open my spam filter and I find just what it is that I need.

“What i don’t realize is actually how you are no longer actually a lot more neatly-preferred than you might be right now. You’re so intelligent. You already know thus considerably relating to this subject, made me in my view imagine it from numerous various angles. Its like women and men are not interested unless itˇ¦s one thing to accomplish with Woman gaga! Your individual stuffs great. All the time handle it up!”

As I note the bottom of the page rolling up, time for me to depart … the rest of you … I release you to your respective duties at the beginning of this brand new week, just tailor made for you.  Have a good day and don’t forget …. handle it up!

(I used to do that, but my mother said it would make me go blind, so I stopped)
