Now on a more somber note I must report that my bra has died. It held me up for awhile but then it let me down. Which,it is responsible for breaking both my kneecaps and causing me to have whiplash.

:lol::lol::lol: I don't think I would have had this problem .... nursing five kids eliminated all I had!!

My son told me a joke today: An old lady was given three wishes for her birthday. Her first one was that she become rich, and she did. The second was that she become young and beautiful, and she did. Her third was that her dog become a handsome man, and he did -- then he said to her, "Now, don't you wish you didnt' have me neutered!!"

Well there is stuff missing from the mens side.

First men wiggle around in their seat looking for their wallet,

Then they take off the seat belt so that get said wallet.

Then man finds out he left wallet at home.

He goes back home to get wallet and asks wife where it is, he finds out he left the wallet at work and drives back to work without the keys to the office.

Now he drives back home to get the office keys but realizes he left the keys in the jacket he took to the dry cleaners.

He goes to the dry cleaners and gets them to find the keys.

He then heads back to the office and does not find his wallet.

He goes back out to the car and finds out his wallet is in the glove compartment.

He heads back to the bank machine and pulls his bank cared out of the wallet.

Then he gets the money and puts money in wallet.

Then he wiggles around trying to get wallet in back pocket.

He then undoes the seatbelt to stick the wallet in back pocket.

He then puts wallet in back pocket then puts seatbelt back on and drives home.

Upon opening his wallet again he realizes he left his card in the machine.

See they have considerably more steps in theirs.

I think I like Rusla's better as hers is so true for the men. Except, mine would just ask me for the $ instead of going through all of that LOL.

Of course, I have to admit that I have known women that are just like on the list.

I know, my son used to ask where his shoes were, I told him he was the one who wore them not me so he should know where he put them.

I figure that my God is going to make sure that I outlive my husband. My hubby may drive me places that are far away since the Ataxia and the exhaustion, but at home he can't find anything. He does not know how to pay bills, etc. When I want to teach him he ignores me. I really think that he believes that if he does not learn that stuff, that I won't die. That has to be a man thing. We woman tackle problems head on.

The only thing is that since I got so ill 3 years ago, he has learned where MY tool box was and how to use all of the tools - he he. So now I am the one who says "where is the hammer".

The other thing is that I know very few men live alone or can live alone. Yet I know many women including myself that are happy and live alone successfully.

When I did not recover the way we thought I would (my hubby and I and not the doctor-he already had that figured out), I asked hubby if we could downsize. He finally agreed. He did not want to at first as he had built me my own mini resort in our backyard and it really took some talking to get him to realize that it was just too much for me to worry about. I did not tell him that the first and most important reason was that I did not want to die and leave him with a pool (he does not swim) or a house too big for him. Now everyone will say that he would just get married again. I know that he won't. Like he tells me - "you sleep with the same rock for 43 years, you cannot replace that rock, no matter how you try" :blink::lol: . Besides which he also says there is not another woman alive that would let him go and watch the horses run at an off track betting parlor, every afternoon of the week. He says a woman might say that would be fine, but get married to her and the worm would turn. Boy does he know his women - he he. Too bad he does not know how to pay the bills.

Before I got sick I did it all. But, he really has done a complete turn around. Does the garbage LOL, helps me with dishes, makes the bed (not to great, but he tries, etc. But, before he retired he used to work anywhere from 80 to 110 hours a week and that is why I had to learn how to do things or at least know how to dial the phone to get someone out to the house that could fix it. But, when the chips were down, he definately has tried to come to the rescue. If anyone from Illinois knew that he was doing these things, they would think he had a brain transplant :lol::lol:

I think you may be delusional, I know the gluten did it.

They made a mistake on your birth certificate just like they did on mine. I think they made a mistake on many of our birth certificates. You are probably young enough to by age or my slightly older sister. You are a spring ostritch, look at that perky look on your face.
