    "I haven't spoken to my husband in years. I didn't want to interrupt him."

    My husband is a talker. He talks so much on the phone that the battery either goes dead or the person on the other end falls asleep. And I'm not kidding. Ask anyone who knows him!!!

  86. Favorite quote - "I just need to stop by the library and pick up a book." My Father

    Growing up this meant we had 2 or 3 hours to spend among the books. Now that my Dad is retired I know I can go with him and get my books and grab a cup of coffee and read. yes, for 2 or 3 hours. Mom knows I'll get him back home for supper.

    We do this at least twice a week. He reads about 15 books a week.
