Hey guys, heads up, Valentine’s Day is this week, FYI.
I know it’s a trumped up Hallmark Holiday. I know you think it’s sole purpose even existing is to sell greeting cards, but that’s not completely true. On the other end of that greeting card is your special lady, who doesn’t care why she’s receiving love notes from you, she’s just happy she is. If you want to know if Valentine’s Day is a big deal to her, just skip it one year, see how that works out for ya.
To help you along, I’m including 5 easy tips on how to make sure Valentine’s Day starts well for her, and more importantly, ends well for you.Continue reading
A couple weeks ago, I laid out what I believed to be my Top 5 Ways to a Happy Wife. If you haven’t had the chance, give it a read after you make it through this one.
I’ve received quite a bit of feedback from that post. I’ve heard stories that some women are reading it aloud to their husbands, others are sending it to them by email, or text message. I’ve been “pinned” on Pinterest a dozen or so times. I don’t even know what that means, but from what I can gather, it’s not nearly as dirty as it sounds.
So as you can imagine, I’ve received more than a little grief from the men.
Guys, this one’s for you.
Ladies, it’s only fair. You read the last one. You made your man read the last one. The least you can do, is read, then share this one.
When I was a kid, you were 100 years old and 100 feet tall.
My world is what you told me it was. Your favorite song, was my favorite song. Your favorite teams, became my favorite teams.
I knew you were my hero, before I knew what a hero was. You were Captain America, Superman, The Incredible Hulk and Wolverine all rolled into one. That’s right, you were Captain SuperHulkerine.
Then, I grew up.Continue reading
This year, I celebrated my 18th wedding anniversary. For 18 years, people have looked at me, then they look at my wife, then they look back at me and rub their eyes, as if I’ll get better looking on second glance. Nope. Sorry.
I’ve heard all the remarks, all the comments, all the “Boy, you sure did marry up!” Yeah, yeah. That’s neat. But you know what? I don’t believe in “marrying up”. Here’s why. For every guy who “married up”, there’s a girl who settled for less. I don’t believe my wife settled for less. I’ve spent 18 years, putting in effort, and it’s never felt like work. Here we are, 18 years strong, and I’m happy, and I believe my wife is happy.
To quote the great philosopher Forrest Gump, “I’m not a smart man, but I know what love is..”Continue reading
I’m 40 years old. I’ve lived in the great state of Oklahoma for all of about 3 of those. I’ve seen roughly 87,000,000 tornado warnings, but never seen one tornado in person. Not only that, I’ve never known anyone personally, who lost a home in a twister. Until this week.Continue reading
I freely admit it. I’ve taken teachers for granted. Sure, as a kid, you wanted the ones that weren’t too hard on you when you screwed up, or maybe
the ones who never noticed when you did.
As a parent, you merely hope they will turn your children into the smartest kids in town. We look at state rankings of schools and hope ours is smarter than that dumb school down the street. Because, by God, my kid needs to have a good job someday so I’m not supporting them till they’re 35.Continue reading
