This will be us in a few more years, or perhaps sooner.

True Love or What?

Elderly John was invited to Mark's home (his old friend) for
dinner one evening. John was impressed by the way his buddy
preceded every request to his wife with endearing terms such
as Honey, My Love, Darling, Sweetheart, Cookie, Pumpkin, etc.

The couple had been married almost 65 years and, clearly, they
were still very much in love.

While Mark's wife was in the kitchen, John leaned over to Mark
and said, 'I think it's wonderful that, after all these years, you
still call your wife those loving pet names.'

Old Mark hung his head. 'John, I have to tell you the truth,'
he said, 'Her name slipped my mind about 10 years ago and
I'm scared to death to ask her what it is!'

Amen to that. LOL

I hope I never forget your name. It would be terrible to forget your name and even worse to forget my name. Can you imagine the terror just opening your eyes from a nap to see a stranger standing in the kitchen watching you?

That stranger being me.

Dear Patty ~~ Good one and don't let it happen to us. May our minds hold out to the end. Thanks for your comments ~ I hope you got your faucets installed. We sure miss the conveniences we have when something goes wrong. Glad you had family home for Father's Day fo Abe. When I do my post later, I am passing on an award to you Patty. Take care, my friend, Love, Merle.
