Editor's Note

Blogging will return later this evening.

On a personal note, this is where I am in my life right now .... :)

Update: I got a couple of emails wondering if I have broken up with the GF. Nothing of the sort .... in the past few days she has been sending me signals that she needs a "rock" .... and when I saw the above cartoon this morning I could not resist. :)

I met the GF when I was working for the UN at ICAO 25 years. She went her way .... I went my way .... but we always maintained contact because we always enjoyed each other's company and conversation. Over the years we became best friends .... and now we are something more than just that. And there is a dog in this story .... he is a Rottie .... but if given a choice he always prefers to stay with her.

Sighhh .... I just can't win.

You probably could not get a get a decent Han wife these days.

A couple of thoughts for solace:
"“Good sex is like good bridge. If you don't have a good partner, you'd better have a good hand.”
“Women like a man with a past, but they prefer a man with a present.”
Mae West for both

When I was a single man I kept my money to myself and expressed my opinion freely.

As a married man, I keep my opinion to myself while she spends "our" money freely.

Chin up Editor. It could always be worse.

Please refer to Mae West quote #2.

When my wife and I first met, I had a ten-year old female German Shepard that I got as a puppy. My now wife commented at the time that I'd had that dog longer than most marriages last... That dog and I were inseparable. She called that dog my "first wife".

LOL. You are a wise man James .... and I know that the GF will agree with you.

Yes Matthew .... dogs are our best friends. :)

Generally, women should not be demeaned as being object-oriented. So I disagree with James.

There are couples who are partners w/o marriage because they believe that a relationship of wedded (in spirit) people ought to be built on mutual trust and friendship, and not on a legal/religious document which binds them artificially and might hold them hostage. This in fact engenders mutual respect and politeness unhindered by perceived external (state & church) obligation. (Don't ask me how I know.):-)

And here I was thinking it was all about doing what I'm told....

My spouse would call you a bad influence and provocateur. ;)


She lets you have a dog?.... wow, all kinds of uppity males on this forum.

"The same women who are ready to defend
their men through thick and thin are (in
their personal intercourse with the man)
almost morbidly lucid about the thinness
of his excuses or the thickness of his
head. A man's friend likes him but leaves
him as he is: his wife loves him and is
always trying to turn him into somebody
else. Women who are utter mystics in their
creed are utter cynics in their criticism."

One of my favorite G. K. Chesterton

Ohhhhhhhhh, she has the dog.

Well, now things are making sense.
