When it rains it pours? Yesterday after we got home from my son's graduation (that we had to park about 1/4 mile away from and walk in a torrential downpour-so we were coming home to change out of wet clothes so we could go out to our celebratory dinner with our son), DH went in the laundry room and it had flooded (a downspout had clogged and all the water came through the wall to the laundry room which is below ground level).
My husband always says, having bad experiences and problems just makes us appreciate all the more when times are good.

PS I laughed about DH meaning Dorky Husband. When I first saw LOL, I thought it meant Lots of Luck

So. I've been outside filling in Bentley's holes so DH doesn't fall and break another bone, of course it's in the 20's with snow on the ground making it even tougher to do but, I finished.

I decided to look online to find DH a new TV to replace his since he's extra grumpy with a broken arm and no TV. I found a good price on a 46" so was going to go buy it. He noticed it on my screen and said NO WAY! It HAS to be a 55" like his that just quit working

Really?! I remember the good old days when we sat around a 13" tv with our 4 kids and we were as happy as could be. How things change.

He is normally such a laid back, easy going guy. I can't wait for his arm to heal. I know he's in pain and the pain meds make him sick so he's not taking anything for it.

Dear Lord...Grant me patience and please keep Your hand over my mouth. Amen.

When DH was home after surgery two years ago...I had to quarantine him to the Bedroom as two or our boys had the flu. I knew the next day, Sunday, was football...so I went out and bought a tv for the bedroom. A 42 flat screen...he was appreciative UNTIL he got better and then started complaining that I should have gotten him a bigger one...OMG WTH...Our bedroom isn't that big and a 55 would have been like sitting in the middle of the game..."precisely" his point I guess...

You need a stove to right? Make him a deal...tell him you get the stove of your dreams if he gets a 55 inch...might just make him think twice...lol

He's right, it's got to a 55" TV! As you age your eye sight tends to go south so we need the bigger screen to be able to see and track the ball; basketball, football, baseball and particularly the beach volleyball!

Sonny, the black lab, ran ahead to make sure there were no gophers or jackrabbits in the way. If you don't give a dog a specific job, he'll improvise one for himself and it will invariably be fun. There's a lesson there.

Has to be at least 55". I agree. A broken arm might even qualify him for 60".

When we got married, I had a little Sony 9" B&W. Times have changed.
