If the women don’t find you handsome they should at least find you handy.
Ever since I heard Red say that on the Red Green Show I have tried to be handy.
I have been thinking about changing my profile picture to my brother’s picture – the women find him handsome and handy. Now that’s a combination.
I am bringing this all up only because today was a special day – a first. And as we all know when firsts come they never come again. I got on the scale this morning and guess what – I now weigh exactly one hundred pounds (45.3 Kilograms) more than I did when I first got married – I sure hope my wife is finding me handy.
I know many of you are thinking wowzer Grayquill, you really must have been busting out the Twinkies – actually I haven’t had a Twinkie in years – HA!
In-spite of this banner day my pride is peeking his head around the corner and yelling defend yourself Grayquill this sounds horrible.
Okay, pride – stop whining I’m coming. Even though I stood 6 feet tall when I got married I only weighed 125 Lbs. My waste was 27 inches. I am not sure what my wife saw in me physically; maybe it was my hair. That was the early 70’s and if I do say so myself I had great hair. Once a service station attendant came up behind me and seeing my flowing locks said, “May I help you mam?” I decided to grow a beard – I am not sure that helped the back of my head look, but it did make me feel more manly.
So, is there a lesson here? Of course there is why wouldn’t there be – I don’t want to say it – It means pain, hard work, denying myself, stepping away from the refrigerator – D’OH!
