what it takes....

Many years ago the Colorado Press announced that some idiot was
opening a TOPLESS DONUT SHOP! Yes I'm serious a topless donut shop
was to open on the main North/South route through Colorado.

Needless to say this feminist was very upset. I was doing the laundry and ranting about how sexist this was and how women were again objectified

John was watching some football game so I assumed he and the boys,
who were upstairs, couldn't hear me. I just kept on ranting about how horrible this was. Finally I ended my rant with ; "OK if they can open a
topless donut shop I can open a bottomless wiener (hot dog) shop! Men
will be pant less serving hot dogs & sausages all day and night!! That
will serve these men right! How dare they!"

At some point I turned around and there was my beloved husband,
who had evidently heard all of my rant, Dressed in a T-shirt a long apron
with no pants carrying a freezer bag of hot dogs.

I looked at him in shock and then he delivered his punch line;

"I wanted you to see what your concept would look like"
 At that point I was laughing so hard that I couldn't catch my breath!
What does it take to ride the wave that is a long term marriage? I can
tell you it takes someone with a great sense of humor and a partner
that thinks that sense of humor is the funniest thing they have ever heard.

Cause when the passion dims with age the sense of humor gets sharper.
If you can laugh together you can re-discover why you got married in the
first place.

Even now (almost 30 years later) when I tell this story I laugh! So as
John and I approach our 39th anniversary he still makes me laugh
almost every day! That alone is worth the effort!

We invite you and you spouse to attend our Couples Course on the
Big Island of Hawaii January 26-28!

You will get the opportunity to find each other again and a renewed appreciation for what you each bring to the relationship!
