Dan Shares A "Blon" Moment

Dan and I just celebrated our 17th anniversary-a whopping 17 years!

We've come a long way since the beginning of our marriage.  We're both "healthier"--you can tell by just looking at us!  We're both grayer-thanks, kids!  And we're both WISER!!!

Thinking back on our first year of marriage, my air-headed genes must have been mingling with his genes.  We lived in a very small single-wide trailer that we bought off of friends.  The cost was right, and it was already set up. 

One small "delimma", for lack of a better word coming to mind, was that the front door did not have a key for the lock.  The back door had a key, but no porch.

We were quite poor when we first married, which is probably why we didn't splurge on getting a door knob with a key, so every time we locked the door, when we returned home, we would use the back door to get in, since we had the key to the lock.  Unlock the door, give one of us a boost in the back door(since there was no porch), and whoever was inside would go and unlock the front door.

We lived in that tiny trailer with no front door key for a year.

We then sold the trailer to friends of ours, as we needed a bigger place to live for our growing family.

The new couple that moved in never had a problem with not having a key to the front door.

Would you like to know why?

Because the husband switched the front and back door knobs.

Yes, Dan and I were smacking our heads.....sigh, and as for me, I still haven't gotten much better!  At least I know what to do if we ever have a missing key door knob problem again, so I'm at least a little wiser!  =)

Time To Round Up The Socks

If you've been a follower of my blog for very long, you already know that I collect socks-under my pillow.  Here is the original blog post about this fascinating fact about me:

The second blog post listed below tells you further information about my sock collection.  You may need to read it in order to understand my latest announcement:

And my latest announcement is......the NEW number is......25!  Yep!  When I realized I could only find about 1 pair of my own socks, it donned on me where to find all the missing foot warmers! I all alone, or does anyone else share my habit???

Sorry Folks!

Sorry folks, but I had to delete my last post.  Unfortunately the ads it was pulling up in my side bar were ads that I wouldn't want anyone to see!

The GOOD news is that I've added this humorous story to my website, so you can still read it!  It's a story from a friend who was pulled over by military police, and you'll never guess why!

Take a look, and check out my new website additions while you are there!
