The Boss Revisited

A couple of days ago I wrote an entry called "The Boss". It generated a fair amount of response via email to me or in conversations. A few responses:

- Very funny reminds me of me and my husband (from Lyndee);
- Please tell Sharon I like Bounty paper towels better (from LaDonna)
- You must have a strong marriage if you can post that blog and still live at home (from Jeff);
- Man Up, don't let her tell you what to do (from Mark, a man whom, when I last asked him to play golf, declined by saying his wife wanted him home by 5:30);
- Very Funny (from Amy);
- We must be married to the same woman (from Bruce);

But maybe the best response was the comment left on the blog by the Lovely Sharon herself who wrote:

"Maybe you can teach an old dog new tricks".

Oh, the Lovely Sharon, what a woman, the love of my life.

By the way, the Lovely Sharon shot her career round of golf yesterday at Hidden Valley Country Club, a one under par 71. Wow!!! Fantastic!!!


  1. Go Sharon. don't take any crap from anyone, even Bud. Bud will buy you any bottle of wine you want, even if you kick ass at golf. Deep down, men love it that their women can play better golf than they do, and especially proud you can kick their friends' ass at golf. You go girl. You deserve it! Besides, you give Bud good inspiration to write stories. Bud, wear orange with lime green next time you play golf. That will give Sharon a lot to talk about.

  2. Oh crap, I became sailor2 at Google and I didn't even swear! That's what I get for trying to go outside my tiny comfort zone of e-mail. Now I am a sailor! Holy Sh__! Leola
