  • Today at the building supply store

    My wife and I went to the building supply store today. When we were leaving we were 5 meters behind a couple walking to our respective autos. The woman of the other couple looked very good from behind. Nice jeans! The man was walking with a metal cane. I was looking and watching quite hard. My wife tells me to be careful I might hurt my eyes. I laughed and told her I was actually looking at the man's cane and wondering how it was made and what type of adjustment capabilities it had. Wondering wether it was made from alu. or some exotic metal. If I could build one myself when I might need one.

    The wife laughed and said she would be happier if I was checking out the lady and that she absolutely believed I was really checking out the cane.

    Thanks for the chuckle. My wife knows that if I don't look, I must be seriously ill!

      Looking

      To me, it's like going to a museum. I can appreciate a fine work of art without wanting to take it home. I told mine - When I'm too old to look, you can bury me, I'll be dead.

        Oh I look and my wife doesn't mind as long as I don't over do it and make any comments.

        She told me once that I could read the menu but I better eat at home!

              My wife says she doesn't care where I get my appetite but I better eat at home.

                  My wife and I were walking through the parking lot one day and she gives me the elbow then points out a license plate " Tight Buts Drive Me Nuts". She often points out real live ones too. Even before we got married she wasn't worried about me wandering off the plantation. After 37 years she still isn't worried.

                      I think it was Paul Newman who, when asked about having extra-marital affairs, or even less licit affairs, replied, "Who needs to go out for a burger when you've got steak at home."

                          Gentlemen I really was looking at the cane.

                          THis post should have gone in the "You know you are getting old when" thread!

                            That's the spirit!
                            Don't ever deviate from that line under cross examination...no matter what.

                            Personally if I don't look at someone's "cane" I'll probably do some sort of irreversible organ damage.

                              Seems that BF's wife has really got him sorted out - and on a short halter as well.

                              Good for her!!
