Thanks to Ted Sheridan

For reminding me

That I still had these

Vacation pics…



Wives have a certain perception,

About needed vacation getaways.

They expect to be constantly pampered,

And look ravishing – while they play.


Their heathen husbands, of course,

Are an entirely different type of breed.

 The words ‘pampering’ and ‘luxurious,’

Are not really understood in our creed.


We can pitch a raggedy tent most anywhere,

We can blissfully sleep out under the stars.

We can easily enjoy a smelly old outhouse,

And we won’t have any mental scars.


Wives, on the other hand,

Can get quite easily upset,

If their carefully prepared ensembles,

Get even the teensy-eensyist bit wet.


I’ll admit Rebecca did look quite stunning,

As we stood high atop a flowered hill,

Surveying a marvelous red rock canyon,

Which was magnificent - what a thrill.


Suddenly, and without warning,

A Spring rain shower did appear.

She rushed off to save her elegance;

I scrounged about for another beer.


The rain had made me quite thirsty,


While it had made her very upset.


 I mistakenly laughed out loud.


She’s not talking to me yet.

Bottom right pic: absolutely hilarious! Is it because I'm not a wife that I was more drawn to the outhouse and that beer? Ah, who knows.. (was there one left?.. grin). I admit, though, that my first question while you pitch the tent would have to be, "what'd'ya mean, NO MR. COFFEE?" Thanks for sharing, Ed. katy xox. (not to mention: "who remembered to bring the OFF?!") ok, ok.. I'm outta here! (have you been slapped yet?) hehe.
