I loveLOVElove a man with dishpan hands! Himself surprised me and did dishes. On the other hand, he used up his one dishwashing gift to me so early in the year...

Try to remember what you did to bring about this unusual activity and repeat it throughout the year. Perhaps once a month. He just might develop a habit out of boredom. And don't forget to compliment him on how soft his hands are.

Addie, I know what I did. I cooked. Not the first time, either! Something I do, oh, four or five times a week - at least. Somehow, I think all Himself was doing was showing off for our daughter. Me taking a picture of Dad was a dead give-away that it's a rare occurrence.

That is funny.

Whenever my husband came in after a 15 day or longer fishing trip, the first thing he would do is sit at the kitchen table and just stare at me while I made supper. At first I was baffled as to why. Then I asked him. Oh dear!

It seems his first wife only knew how to heat up frozen foods for a meal. I was cooking from scratch and he thought that was amazing. I still have a picture of him with his chin in his two hands just staring at me.

Good lookin' guy you've got there, CG! I've always been kinda partial to the big burly type.

Thanks, Cheryl. 6' 2" didn't seem so tall when we first married, but I was 5' 6 3/4" then. Now that I've had that middle-age shrink happen and I'm an inch and a half shorter, he looks like Man Mountain to me! And since he's taken off some weight since switching from oral meds to insulin, he's also dropped about 50 pounds of "burly". Not yet down to Wedding Day Weight yet, but neither am I.

To 84 year old Rupert Murdoch. She won't have to worry about her retirement...

I suspect there's more to just looking good next to him.
