A Thought Before Bed

How can a husband, married for twenty-one years, turn off all the lights in the house, including the porch lights and then go and get in bed and NOT NOTICE THAT HIS WIFE IS NOT IN BED???


Let me add some pertinent information here. We live up in the mountains. Things get very dark here at night since there are no outside light sources. Especially on cloudy nights. When it's very dark outside.

Also, there are goats and cats and dogs sleeping on our front porch. Not to mention the wheelbarrow the kids use to bring up fire wood, that one of the goats likes to sleep in. Walking down our 50 foot long front porch in the pitch black is DANGEROUS.

Also, my studio is down a hill from the house. And, of course, it's even a longer way down hill from the house when THERE IS NO LIGHT.

The part I just don't get is how he could get in bed and NOT REALIZE I'M NOT THERE.


When I got in the house and went up to the bedroom, he said "I thought you were in bed."


At first I was irritated. Now I am just baffled.

I love your blog. Your art is just wonderful.
This post made me laugh. Yesterday was my wedding anniversary, my husband sent me an email at my office saying Happy Anniversary Honey. He signed it with his first and last name.
I was baffled by that.

I'm looking for a good defense for him.

Looking, looking, looking....

I got nothin.

Sounds like something LoveHubbie would do. Remember that show from the 50's or 60's on Art Linkletter called something like "Kids Say the Craziest Things"? There should be a show called "Husbands Do the Strangest Things"!

I love Pam's comment about her husband, too...first and last name :)

Wednesday Well-Wishes and Love,

May I suggest a flash light to wear around your neck, a miners light on your forehead, and a rope strung from studio to house incase this attentive husband notices you there when you aren't again?

Just read through some of your entries on your blog and I would think the answer would be pretty obvious...
