Crazy?

The grandson and I were having a conversation about a couple Cliff and I know, a long-married twosome having some domestic differences right now. I told him that actually, they've never seemed really happy together.

"Yeah, but the way Grandpa talks, isn't she sorta crazy?" Arick asked.

I paused for a bit, then answered, "Now I'd be a fine one to call anybody crazy, wouldn't I?"

He chuckled, and wisely said nothing.

But let's face it, how many retirement-aged women spend nights out in the pasture sleeping with a dog, in a one-room shed-turned-cabin, just to get away from people? Or get up before dawn to ride a horse, three or four times a week?

You know what they say about people who live in glass houses.

Ummm... I signed up for sitemeter today (yeah, I know I just never got around to it LOL!) Anyway, I signed up with my blogger account as the main account. Do you have two separate accounts.. one for your Blogger Blog and one for the AOL one, or do you just use the one account for both? Just curious....

I guess I wouldn't be pointing any fingers around here either! But I figure if I am happy and Husband is happy that's all that counts. If we enjoy shoveling stalls together so be it!

I really don't think anyone has a right to point fingers in this world. I know I definitely won't!!
