Lets just say Delana wanted him to retire at 40 and re-signed anyway because he just won the championship. So while he may be doing well right now, we may have to see how hard those home strings are pulling later this season.

The older I get, the more I appreciate the peculiarities of certain people. :s_wacko

This was my first week back at work in the body shop. Monday almost killed me! I had to sit out for five weeks. The first day almost killed me.
I got home Monday evening and my Mom said she wanted the blinds down in the living room. In fact, she insisted that the blinds come down. I told her I could handle that and she could start supper.
10 minutes later, I strode into the kitchen to ask her "Where do you want this?" Her wide eyes said it all...She couldn't find the words lower the blinds.

I fixed the lowering problem and re-hung the blinds the next morning. What Mamma and I had was a failure to communicate.

Sounds like the conversations Mrs HH & I have sometimes. Like the time she asked me, "where's the enlarger?" The WHAT? The enlarger!

After some time, I finally figured out she was looking for the magnifying glass. :s_wacko

The enlarger is right where I left it...in the dark room with the developer, stop bath, and rinse, as well as the timer and photo paper...where else would an enlarger be

This happens more often the older we get. If one of my folks ever asks for the enlarger, I now know to ask if they're talking about a magnifying glass thingy. They have a rectangular one from AARP with a built-in led light!
The only time we have a dark room is when I follow the folks around and turn off lights! They'll be in the living room watching Marty Stuart and every light in the house is on......
