How to stay out of the doghouse....

Pull up a chair and grab a cup of Java for a cozy chat about what's on your mind and what's happening in your neck of the woods. This is a strictly for fun non-gardening topics.

My Sil made me a beautiful cane he carved himself from one piece of wood. It was for my birthday when I was learning to walk

an old fashion look. I love it

Then he carved the roses in my rocking chair and refinished the chair for mother's day one year That chair I bought for $3.00 from yard sale

I posted a pic one time.

I love that chair more than anything I own. But this chair and cane will be his some day


Most women throw hints what they really would like. Some just need to listen or make notes theoughout the year

This year I can't think of anything I would like so threw some hints.

Yes my fav perfume and and sweaters

OMG Lyn...just watched the doghouse video...that's hilarious! :lol:

Kat, at first I read "diamond watch" and wondered what the problem was....DIVER'S watch...got it-lol!!

Ron..too funnee!

I've never had to send Eric to the doghouse as he's always got it right! But my ex-husband got me a vacuum cleaner so I didn't have to cart the house vacuum back and forth to the store on cleaning day. grrrr. :evil: (Note the operative prefix there.)

Butterfly, that one has to take the cake! I mean yeah, sometimes a good sump pump or a Vacuum cleaner is actually welcome. particuarily if money is tight. But a toilet seat???? :o That one is just way too much! There's a guy that REALLY didn't get it. I hope you dumped him PDQ!

Splitting a gut here. We had a broken toilet seat ( I think Jeanne farted)
& we each gave a new one to each other for Christmas. Poor practical folks here. :lol:

Well, I may be the odd gal out, but personally, I hate picking clay pack out of my diamonds and scraping manure off of my high heels, at the end of each day. laf!
