It's a little past 3 am and I'm having trouble sleeping. My mistake was in eating a spring onion with my dinner. Now, all was not lost, for, I sat down and slept for about three hours in the recliner. But, when I went to lay down in bed, the onions said no way old boy, this lying flat will never do. Then the belching started and lo and behold, up comes a green onion top that coulda laid there for upteen years before digesting. So, now I'm sitting here drinking a hot tea after just taking a prevacid. I'm feeling better and hopeing this too will pass.

Off in the bedroom, I hear light snoring from my sleeping wife. It's a comforting sound that I've been hearing for about 40 years. The thought of ever not hearing it is frightening. You see, Nancy and I have been together for so long, It's unconscionible to imagine us being apart.

In this regard, I am reminded of when we first met. Shortly after, I asked her if she had a photograph of herself that I could stick in my wallet. she promptly said no but, after rummaging through her purse she came up with a picture of herself taken at Lake Tyler, in Tyler, Texas. When she handed it to me I made the comment that I would carry it until the day I die.

Well friends, I'm still carrying that same picture in my wallet. I've laminated it three times and it appears to be in great need of a fourth. But, I'm afraid to mess with it. For, if I pull the old stickum off, I run the risk of ruining the picture. That's kinda like her snoring. I could put a clothes pin on her nose but, I'd run the risk of living in silence. And, that dear friends, would surely ruin the picture. Some things are better left alone.....gfp

I don't feel right sleeping in my bed unless Abe's there with me... I don't feel right with Abe there with me unless he's rattling the windows with his snoring. :)
