Pit Falls and Pot Holes


Fri, May 11th, 2001

Monday, May 7, 2001

If some of you young men are considering marriage, there are some things that you must understand. Married life is like a hi-way, it can be level and smooth or it can be bumpy and full of pot holes. It all depends upon how you maintain it.

If you will give me your undivided attention, I will give to you, at no charge, the benefit of my forty-five years of experience. Now it doesnt matter how long your marriage endures, whether it is six months or sixty years; you are going to do some dumb things. For the simple reason that you are a man, you have a proclivity for doing dumb things. You have to learn to live with that proclivity for there is nothing that you can do about it, its built in and every man comes equipped with it.

First of all you must realize that women are different from men. Vastly different! You may think that you know your way around. You may think that since you are a man of the world, you have all of the answers. You may even think that once the wedding license is signed and ring is on her finger all that remains for you is to sit down, relax and enjoy the fruits of your endeavor. Well if you believed all of that, then you are just as dumb as I was over forty-five years ago.

Picture if you will, your first Christmas together. Now here is where you will become aware of one of the major differences between men and women. Now if a man should receive a gift, a set of screw drivers and a half dozen golf balls, he will more than likely display the screw drivers in a rack of some sort where he can show them off to his less fortunate male friends and he will delight in placing the golf balls in his golf bag and hope for a short winter. In short, the man is happy, not only has he something he can use but also something to look forward to.

Now we will take a look at the other half of this proposition. Let us suppose that you want to show your beloved how much she means to you. You want to give her something that will not only please her but will cause her to think of you every time that she uses it. See if you can picture this: its Christmas Eve, you have opened your gift of screw drivers and golf balls and you take this beautifully store wrapped gift and place it into her soft little hands, then you step back and sit in your chair so that you may observe the expression on her face as she unwraps that beautifully store wrapped gift.

You see the sparkle in her eyes, the smile on he .....

When the phone rang at three a.m. last Monday morning, my husband Joe sat straight up out of a deep sleep, "Baby time," he said.

The only thing the county board is concerned about are roads, one person commented to me a few weeks ago.

And the way in which she said this implied that this was not necessarily a good thing.
