I Care About Their Names

This evening Ryan and I were doing yard work, because we are old and that is what we do on Saturday nights before settling down in front of the television to watch a Matlock DVD and drink Postum. He was mowing the lawn and I was mucking out the pond for what feels like the 40,000 time. He was finishing up, so he turned off the lawnmower and took out his earphone to talk to me.
Ryan: How is that going?
Me: Fine. The fish seem really happy.
Ryan: How do you know?
Me: They told me their names. The two orange ones are Jean and Claude and the spotty one is Vandamme.
Ryan: (putting earphone in) This is intentional.
How rude.

We know we're old because not only do we do yard work during weekend evenings, we enjoy it. Box wine helps.

I like the new pic- Jason loves to dive but it's one of my many phobias (I don't like encounters with things that might eat me). God, I need to update my blogroll- I'm such a selfish blogger. I just want everyone to read me, me, me!

We do yard work on the weekends, too. And by we, I mean my husband does the work, and he's happy if I'm just *present*, which is completely ok with me. :)

Our fish are named Bruce and Demi, if it makes you feel better. Bruce is a goldfish. Demi is a placostamus (SP?). We had a snail that we were going to name Rumer, but Demi ate it. LOL!

Box wine effects my spelling. I do know that know should have been now. I now have 3 credits.

I love your blog. I make my husband read it against his will because he asks my why I'm laughing out loud. True to life LOL, you know?

What is postum?

You make me laugh! You remind me of one of my closest friends who allowed her children (all under the age of 8) to name their cat and two kittens. The cat's name is Sushi, and the kittens? Well, the girl is named Tuna and the boy is named Spring Rolls.

I totally wasn't going to follow you, but the damned Postum reference sold me. I thought I was the only one that remembered/knew Postum. Crap. If Kim figures out where I lives and comes over to smack me, it's your fault. Follow I will.

I mean "where I live." No s.
