Took wife, son, daughter-in-law and grandson out to dinner. Nice restaurant. Wife sees wall art. Says “Make me one of those.”
Aw sh…......shucks.
Retrieve cell phone. Take pic of wall art. Enjoy rest of dinner.
Decide to finish previously started projects. Hope wife will forget request.
Three weeks later finish all projects. Wife didn’t forget.
Aw sh….....shucks.
Some pine. Some plywood. Some paint. Some this, that, and the other. Voila!! Done. 24” x 48”
“How do you like it, Honey?” She says “I like it!” And then promptly proceeds to hang it in MY home office!!!!
Aw sh….....shucks.
But I’ll live with it because SHE’S HAPPY!!!!!!
