I understand why you are so popular in Cute, you make us all laugh!
Loved your Easter Treat bags.
You will make me blush..................lol
Just come on here tonight and this has made my day - love your sense of humour Dennis. Love Chris
Thank you Mrs. P.
Borrow? that is funny Dennis, I had to laugh...Women!
I am so happy you are on this Cute site, I look forward to a good story ever now and then.....gotta love the Wife....
"Gotta"...............................that sounds compulsory....lol.
I am so sorry you were forced to do another half dozen just when you thought you could do something less boring instead. Look on the bright side, only 12 days left to Easter. Of course, a lot can happen in that period and more importantly you'll have to take extra care of hiding your Christmas goodies come December, but a man forewarned is a man forearmed or something similar.
Anyway, thanks for the laugh.
Thank you, Mrs. M. You are of course right and if my memory serves me correctly, the instructions regarding Christmas projects should be received sometime next week!
So how many extra Xmas goodies are you going to make for "Just in Case"?
It is early on Tuesday morning. Although I answered your post yesterday, I have just read the newer posts. Thank you Dennis for your wonderful sense of humour. I am still smiling. What a way to start the day. Thank you Dennis.
Thank you, Sarah. As Ann often tells me..............I have my uses..................limited as they are......lol
Well Dennis i am lost for words.
1... I think its a complement that "She who must be obeyed", "borrowed" your works of Art.
2... From your point of view Ok a key BUT.... Did Anne get the Master key?
3... Luckily as Carolyn said , My DH wouldn't be able to find the Machines let along any finished projects. He has trouble with the glove compartment in the car :))
Good luck with the Locksmith :)
You Pauline...............................lost for words..........HaHa!
It is all a plot I tell you--the locks smith it probably a women and the lady of the house had the keys before you :)
That sums up my life in a sentence...................as you say, it's a plot!! The locksmith was definitely a man................he shouted something like "I thought my wife was bad but you're on your own with this one" as he escaped down the drive with a look of sheer terror........lol
and the world unfolds as it should.
You must have had some lovely treat bags in there for "she who must be obeyed" to want to borrow.. How did she know what you had made? Sorry to hear she frightened the Locksmith. Now you will have to find a Plan B LOL Shirley
Hey Shirley, I blame it on those guys at Embroidery Library. All I did was pushed the start button! She new what had been made because she sneaked into the man cave whilst I was watching rugby. Sneaky thing!!
Oh Dear! You sure will have to find a way of keeping her out. Perhaps you could put a TV in your man cave. You would then be able to keep a eye on your treats at the same time as watching rugby. Or give up watching rugby and stay making extra treats for her to borrow. LOL Shirley
I guess she really likes you work! By now I suppose you are stitching more. Love your humor!
You've no doubt seen those films of old Roman times when they had slaves rowing their fighting ships whilst chained to the boats deck. Picture that for a moment..................I'm the third slave from the left clutching a big oar.................lol
Clutching an oar, or clutching new treats as you stitch them?
I'm sort of new, hope I can comment...
I'd teach her how to run the design, Dennis! She needs to PAY in blood, sweat and tears!
Quite right! I like you and your thinking......................lol
I thought just pain Loving would suffice.....
When the locksmith arrives, will she give the locksmith a bunny bag too? Thanks everyone for the laughs!
You've obviously met my wife before.........................lol
Well Dennis you must have a tidy sewing room as my husband would not be able to find anything in mine. I love Sue's electric door knob. Which was similar to something that I had been talking about with a friend. On the plus side you must be doing something right. You have created some great work and Anne wanted to share it with the GMS. As its a while since you posted I presume that the locksmith has already been
Dennis thanks for your great postings and I am enjoying a great laugh reading all the comments here due to your original post
Thank you Caroline. Unfortunately, Ann answered the door to the locksmith before did.........................I've never seen a terrified locksmith before!
Can you hear me laughing very loudly from my bit of the UK
Laughing here in South Africa, too!
Don't be such a spoil sport Dennis. Sarah
Sorry, Sarah...........................now hanging my head in shame.
Here's the problem with your plan. When she calls the locksmith to rekey your man cave, he will rekey it for her, too. Then where will you be?
Ah, and P.S. I looked up mafia: Mafia is a type of organized crime syndicate that primarily practices protection racketeering — the use of violent intimidation to manipulate local economic activity, especially illicit trade; secondary activities may be practiced such as drug-trafficking, Loan sharking and fraud. Being bonded together by a code of honour, in particular the code of silence (or omertà in southern Italy), safeguards the Mafia from outside intrusion and law enforcement action.
I think I would just smile and say, "Yes, dear."
So glad you are back on track. I am not as eloquent as you are and now you understand the basic rights of "the Lady of the household". I am just surprised she did not mention her need prior to the engagement. As well it is not like she borrowed your chain saw.
It would be the re-run of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre if she were to borrow it. My worry is that I would be on the end of it!!!! lol
Dennis; The old saying "tis better to give";well in alot of our cases' "tis better to donate to good causes"...as once,my daughter saw those bag bunnies,she also had many reasons to have a few..Diane M.
You are of course right, Diane. Thank you for putting me back on track.
Dennis I think it could be detrimental to your health to anger the Geriatric Mafia Sisterhood.. 6 lace Easter baskets seems a small price to keep them on your good side. Now reconsider that locksmith and do as you have been told and get busy. lol
You make several good points there, Bev. LOL
"She who must be obeyed" is a smart lady and cost conscious. Much cheaper going shopping in the man cave. You should be honored at her good taste ha, ha. Once I received a thank you note from someone I did not know. My husband had gone shopping in my sanctuary and send of a baby blanket without my knowledge. My vote is for "No Locksmith"
'Smart' she is.................'cost conscious' is not a phrase that readily comes to mind! LOL
Dennis- I think the 'one who must be obeyed' does fit the criteria of 'Cost Conscious' in several ways maybe not ALL the ways, you are thinking of ....but just think How fast was she able to get into the man cave and abscond with those 6 baskets? Versus Just how much time, money and fuel would she have needed to get ready to go into town, drive into town and the other various businesses to find something even half as great as you had created? and if she did go to all that effort, do you actually think she would not have also picked up some other items that she remembered needing once she spotted them on the shelves, just calling her name to put them into her shopping basket? Thanks for the smiles you give. You poor long suffering soul! What will you have to endure next? We await your next trial. ;)
Hi Ho, Hi Ho, to the Locksmith you must go...Hi Ho, Hi Ho, Hi Ho, Hi Ho...Hi Ho, Hi Ho...
Hmmm... I think it's a compliment, a testiment to your fine work. She wouldn't have "borrowed" those handmade treatbags if she didn't feel they were worthy of giving to her good friends. She is actullay showing off your talents (selling/marketing for you). You are one lucky guy to have such a thoughtful wife.
Admit it Dennis, she takes care of you and does a lot of little things to sweeten your life, doesn't she!?!?! And, well... Rumpole would forgive Hilda. So what say you?
Yes, you are of course right. I must keep reminding myself how lucky I am. And yes, she does normally remember to put sugar in my tea....lol. Ah, Rumpole! Now that brings back memories.
AHHHH....Well!!! You enjoyed sending them one by one from the machine to the Filler table and then to the completed table, so back at it Bro!!! hahaha! It was my FSL Easter Eggs that found new homes different than I expected!!! But they are all fun and love peoples liking them! Hugs, Judy
You are a slave driver Judy but you are right, of course. Ah well..................nose to the grindstone!!
Ah Dennis, surely a locksmith is expensive and would cost more than remaking the 6 treat bags. Perhaps you could keep a locked box inside the inner sanctum and pray the box does not disappear. Maybe you should understand how wonderful and exciting your projects are that she who must be obeyed cannot resist their charm and must have them. It is the magic of carefully crafted items. Have you considered a curse? Much cheaper than a locksmith!
Thanks for making my day this morning!
Witchcraft!!....................now there's a thought. Thank you Meri.
Have you considered booby traps? I rather fancy those dinky electrified door handles myself.
Don't you think this a little harsh for his 'put upon wife?'
Pheeewww...glad to hear it's not another missing/misplaced scissor case! For a moment there I thought you were going to tell us they (the scissors) had taken a life of their own and become real cut ups! :P Love the humor in the morning. As to the locksmith...may not so much.
All my scissors are well behaved. However, I am working on something concerning this topic and you may have unwittingly provided me with some suitable material.......watch this space. lol
You are more than welcome, if I have given you something to expand your witticisms on. Love you sense of humor!
You are too too funny! Thanks for putting a *smile* on my face after reading your post! (I had to put a lock on my door too!)
Thank you, Judy
LOLOL!!! "Easter Chick" strikes again........thanks for the chuckle, Dennis!!
You are most welcome Madame Vicki.............lol
love your humor.LOL I have a daughter that does that, Alot
Thank you. There......you see............it's always the women!!
Thank you Dennis for a morning chuckle. As my kids tell me in these sit;uations...your retired now and have nothing but time...lol. I know your up for the challenge and will get more done.
Thank you Jerri. I don't have kids...................just the wife, which boils down to the same thing really.....lol
