Those antlers?The ones that Gman had hoped to hang in our bedroom? Above our bed? You mean the ones that have the little hooves mounted below to hold the fishing rod or rifle? The ones that used to be above his fireplace in his bachelor pad?
The one's that in his own mother's words "Oh! he Loved Those!"???? Oh, I have no clue. So I look over to my sister-in-law who grew up in deer country. "I don't know five bucks?" I look over at the lady and say "Five Bucks" The lady, who had previously showed no emotions at all, comes to life. She is excited. She can't hide it. "I'll take it!" Realizing my stupidity, and being still somewhat of a rookie at diplomacy, I said to her. "You'd better get out of here before my husband gets back." Wisely she did. I was left with five dollars and a problem.Gman handled it pretty well. We had only been married a few months, so he was still madly in love with me. He only tried to sell the box of china from my great aunt Alice once that day. We get a chuckle out of it now. I learned something that day. I am still learning things as I think too much, like this blogger I just started following. I loved her title page. Just Thinkin'. It amazes me how God can use so many small events to teach me something. I learned that the Golden Rule is the rule. We are leaky vessels and need to hear it over and over. I can hear that catchy song from Sunday School. "Do to others, Do to others as you would have them do to you." My friend was expressing how much she has enjoyed my blog the other night. She is like my first follower. Thanks so much BFF, I appreciate the kind words. Then she blurted out "How come you are not that funny in person?". Before we go thinking, boy that was harsh, know this, those words did not hurt at all. I told her that I have learned to bite my tongue. She understands it totally, we are sisters in that matter. I could say I am too often misunderstood, but the truth is I am tired of eating shoe leather. Many of my funny thoughts and unsaid words would have been at the expense of others. Whatever gains I make in my life, my hope is to let them be through kindness and hard work. Not at the expense of others. Yard sale season is coming up. I will keep this in perspective. Thanks for stopping by. ~TerriG
