The Gardener's Helpmate
Man does not live by gardening alone; to me, my partner in life and love pales the most beautiful flower in the garden by comparison. I am the analytical, scientific left brain; she is the artistic, people-oriented right brain. In social settings, I tend to fade into the background a bit, but everyone remembers Liz; I retired four years ago, so I now do a lot of household things that she used to take care of; yet most of the service people I deal with still, after four years, get a blank look on their faces until I mention I'm Liz's husband... "Oh, Liz!" But, I've gotten used to it, and don't mind much, being identified just as Liz's husband... though it did bother me a little when it happened at MY family reunion.
I am glad you finally gave her a little credit. Anyone who puts up with Uboughtwhat is surely putting up with a lot more that we never hear about.
It is amazing to me how different bloggers and their families look, than how I imagined them! You sound like a very nice man, but your wife must be a saint to put up with that gargoyle thing you have!!Post a Comment
