Great Moments In Marital Bliss #257

Yes Dear.

Your wife - my wife. Interchangeable parts. In theory, not in practice.

What, she wouldn't LOVE one of these? Heck, I think I want one and I'm a middle aged man.

(She Who Must Be Obeyed)

Learn it - Live it - Love it.

My Dad has was married over 63 years to two wonderful women he outlived. When asked as to the secret of two marriages, each lasting decades, each very happy, he said "It's simple. We never went to bed angry. We would stay up, talking rationally, until each of us realized I was wrong.".

Pink guns are just WRONG though. I want a XD in .45 in the olive and stainless but so far Santa isn't answering his mail.
