One night when he was standing outside talking to a friend, the front door opened, the TV flew unceremoniously onto the porch, took a nice bounce and landed in the flowerbed. No words were spoken as the door slammed shut. Another time they were all working in their huge and amazingly productive garden when the kids sneaked inside because they didn’t want to miss Gilligan’s Island. After about 20 minutes, she noticed that her helpers were missing, so she gathered her gardening shovel and headed for the house. When she discovered them all gathered around the TV, she took a swing at it with the shovel. But those were the good old days when a TV needed more that a shovel to break it.

Now first of all I want to point out that I was fully dressed in shorts and a t-shirt for my aerobics class! I even had my shoes on! But when he invited me to climb beneath the blanket and cuddle with him…well, I just couldn’t resist. Since he was in his pjs, I kept the sheet between us, but that didn’t stop his mom from coming totally unglued when she found us a few minutes later! She was finally appeased when we proved that we were both completely clothed and not even next to each other, but it was a mistake I was very careful not to repeat.
