There are many wonderful things about our house in the woods.....
--dinner can be eaten on the coffee table if the game of Monopoly is still in progress at dinnertime
--the door is never locked, and most often, not closed, cause apparently we DO live in a barn
-- Grandma and Grandpop live next door
and in our little town, there is no supermarket, there is no liquor store, there is no restaurant. There is a post office and the lumberyard. So if one wants to visit with the neighbors, one goes to one of these two places.
So my DH went to the lumberyard the other day and the store manager asked about my FIL since they had not seen him in a while. My DH said he was fine and went about his $2.20 purchases (probably $5 in gas to get there, but it was really more of a social call).
The next day he takes his father with him to the lumberyard for some forgotten item. The store manager takes one look at my FIL and says to my husband " I just asked how he was, I didn't say you had to bring him in"
Don't you just have to giggle at the way men talk when women aren't around?
Hugs and Stitches!
P.S. We are finally home after nearly 2 weeks away, so if I have not responded to your comments, please forgive me! I have some catching up (and laundry) to do!
