It's very hot...

It must be 479 degrees outside. (OK...so I closed my eyes and hit random numbers.)

I came dragging in about 5:30 pm with groceries and apparently a perturbed expression on my face.  Hank got the rest of the groceries while I changed from work clothes into sloppy clothes. (Sorry Miss Janice...I feel like I let you down!)

About ten minutes later, Hank yells from the back door.  "Hurry...come see this...you've got to come see this."  Now after 28 years, he ought to know that this ol' gal never hurries outside when it's 96589 degrees outside. He was persistent, "Come ON...you have to see it...you HAVE to."  (I promise, he really is 53....) Surprising myself, I actually started walking toward the sunroom when he added, "There's the prettiest turtle in the pool.  You have to see it...HURRY!"  (Seriously, he IS 53...)

I felt kind of bad (for about 5 seconds) after I hollered, "I am NOT going outside in this heat to see a PRETTY TURTLE.  CLOSE THE BACK DOOR!"

He went back out and I watched him as he got all of his nets and poles to fish the thing out.  You see...Hank truly loves all God's creatures...you know, except the icky ones that few people like such as poisionous snakes and spiders and ants and palmetto bugs and noseeums.  He's a good guy.  That's one of the many reasons we've been married 28 years.

I, on the other hand, am OK with people (most of them) but not so much God's four-legged creatures.

God Bless my husband!


  1. I know what you mean, it definitely feels like 479 degrees here in the sunshine state...maybe hotter ;-)


  2. Smart turtle, getting out of the heat. Did Hank bring him a frosty beverage?

  3. I'm with you. I have only been married for seven, but I can promise you if Todd calls me to check something out, I only go 1/2 the time. And it's never worth the trip. I especially love the sports replays that I watch over and over because I just have to see something unprecedented.

  4. Haha! Sounds like my husband, though he actually likes the spiders too! And you know those spiders that show up all over down here out in the yard, I don't know what they are called, but he won't let me swat them and their webs away! I told him that since the house is for sale we cannot have spiders and spiderwebs all over the yard and I have been getting rid of them!

  5. I love your posts! This time and every time. XOXO

  6. LOL!!! I can just picture this whole scene!


Please comment...it makes me HAPPY!
