It’s a good thing I love that husband of mine! Friday night late, Vince announced that he needed a high definition cable for the high definition hook up for the high definition TV in the family room. His need didn’t rate real high on my list of things to do but I could tell that Saturday, it would be a trip to Wal-Mart or bust! Worse, the Wal-Mart here didn’t have the high definitional cable so . . “honey, would you like to go to Fort Scott tomorrow?” NO!
He’s already ordered a high def cable but he’ll use that one for the downstairs TV. He needs one for the upstairs TV now because, after all, he’s been watching TV for 55 years without high def but he can’t go another day without having it.
But then . . the thought occurred to me — I need more flour. I had called the store up in Butler on Friday morning to see if they had a bag and yes, they did so I figured we could go up there Monday or Tuesday and get a 50 pound bag of flour. But, there’s a Wal-Mart in Butler so I suggested we go to Butler . . kill two birds with one stone you might say. That was great. Two stops in Butler turned into four stops in Butler but at least he got his cable. On the way home, he said “honey, would you like to go to Fort Scott to Tractor Supply?” NO! We need a gas line hookup for the propane bottle to the heater. We stopped at Orscheln’s in Nevada and they had one so unless he can think of another reason . . we’re not going to Fort Scott today.
Vince is off work for the next two weeks. Anyone want to guess how many days he’s going to want to go somewhere . . anywhere . . just get out of the house? I’m betting all but one . . Christmas Day we’ll stay home because no place will be open.
