    Money. It's what makes them all happy. I even tested this theory.

    Stay away and leave her the check book. With Covid this year we might spend three weeks together.

    He's not grunting Hannie, he's ignoring you. But he's got to make some noise. Or you will think that he is ignoring you?

    Eventually, the survivors will realize it's too dangerous and stay away.

    Respect and kindness... in moderation of course.

    Happiness comes from within, hannie.

    If you are trying to "find" happiness from somewhere, or someone else, you'll never be happy.

    "Making your woman happy"?

    Sounds like any man that thinks like that is a servant and not a husband.

    Pick my battles.

    Pretend the silent treatment bothers me.

    Happiness does come from within but its also a state of mind, as a husband I don't do things to make her happy or to like me better I do the things I do because it makes me feel good that in turn makes our relationship that much better, after all I'm in it for the long haul.

    Bad boy. What about the shower?



    LOL! That sounds like something Daddy would say, and Mommy would just roll her eyes.



    Very sorry to hear that. You will meet the right one.



    Be careful. She could make that happen.



    My eyes just filled up. You two made a beautiful couple. You will be together again one day.



    I don't think so.



    Not true. At all.



    Very sorry for your loss.



    Exactly. But if I suspect he's not paying attention I will bust him with a pop quiz question "What did I just say?"



    How do you do that?

    It's one thing to do it of your own free will, if it's expected, then there's a problem

    It ain't easy.

    I say things like "You need anything from town?" and I'll get a curt "no". I follow up with "Ok, well I'll have me cell phone with me if you think of something."

    It will be 23 years in October. My wifes's good people and low drama so we get along great about 51 weeks a year.

    You better hope she doesn't figure out that the silent treatment isn't working, or she may start using the frying pan LOL.

    Congratulations on 23 years.

    Substitute 'shower' for 'sink' and you will keep one unnamed GT member happy.

    ...and
    Last week she was frustrated at me and I was exasperated at her. In my exasperation I made my point and putting an explanation point on it completed my statement with, "m*th*rf*cker.." She paused, looked at me and said, "No. Redneck f**ker." I just shook my head and smiled.
