Cranks My Tractor

One more stop in the bedroom…

That’s right, just move the car into the bedroom and tell the commendable young fellow to strike a pose.  In the background, let’s make sure to have the husband’s closet doors wide open with every shirt, jacket and pair of pants neatly hung with some sort of color coding and organizational scheme that would make any wife proud.

Put a bouquet of flowers in one of the hubby’s hands and have the other arm around his wife – my friend.

I could think of a lot of things to put in that “speech bubble” coming out of his mouth,  but why not something simple and significant like, “Sweetheart, do you realize that 24 years, 232 days, 3 hours, 27 minutes and 56 seconds ago we shared our first piece of pecan pie together?”

In this picture, my friend (the one with the perfect husband) could have a sheepish grin on her face and have one of those “thought bubbles” coming out of the top of her head that said, “Do I know how to pick’em or what?”

All I have to say is – “Thanks a lot!”  Thanks for emphasizing the fact that many of my friends and I can’t find the floor in our garage, let alone a Phillips head screwdriver.

My daughters enjoy watching a show on The Learning Channel, “Say Yes to the Dress.”  If you haven’t seen it, this team of bridal gurus guides women and their families through the process of selecting a dress for their wedding.
