....and I think she's still a keeper. Besides haven looked into them big brown eyes of her for over four&a half decades, I'm not going to turn tham blue. I quess Herr Clink will just have to put up with me for another 4&1/2.
Just between you & me & the gate post, she's getting no more than she deserves having entrapped me.
God Bless.

We were married six yrs or so. working 10/11/12 hrs a day 6/7 days a week, and driving an hr, to boot.
Got to stoppoing off for A beer, then 2 stops another beer/2/3/4. Wife was tlling kids dad's just acting funny.
She made me an appointment. I had to be there, on-time, cleaned up, something special. I knew no more, but a goooodwife needs a little consideration from time to time, so I did as she asked.
She surprized me. Dinner hid in stove. Candles lite table set. Kids pawned off on a grand-mother, it was her and I. A tricked I.
Wasn't much said. She was lovely to look at. Something I had missed all summer. It was after supper, over coffee in the livingroom, she spoke, "I looked around your shop and see you have a lot of projects started. Projects you'llnever finish if you continue wasting your time. Time lost drinking with your friends." I don't remember the exact words, but these are close.
There was no ultimatium. just worried consern. If a choice was to be made, she wasn't out`n'out suggesting it. I could chose on my own.
I quit drinking, quit stopping, and finishedup all the home-made Christmas toys on time. Toys the kids told everybody came from the real North-Pole. These were the best trades I ever made, even when these kids got to elfen their younger siblings a few yrs later.
Suggesting she was my jailer I endearingly started callingthe wife Clink. AND, That was before Hogan's Heros which later made all these going's-on all the funnier.
That's it Lord Bless
