Now do you believe me, Stan? We should have taken a cruise with that money you spent on perpetual care.

    Wonderful dry humour! Love the "if only" regret!

    Ooh I like it! :O)

  3. Cheryl Says:

    Yep. She's right. If that's perpetual care, I'd hate to see what no care looks like.

    I'm new to this: Irony.

    Leave him alone, at least now! :)
    Liked it.

    Tee hee! Yeah, a cruise would have been way more fun! How come SHE's always right? LOL

    I agree–cruising would have been a much better choice!
    Have a great week. Cheers!

    Just an added note that I had a real problem reading the text on your page because of the green background and little pictures….maybe it's just my old eyes, but thought I'd let you know…

  11. Grandma Says:

    I've got old eyes too. Normally the background is light pink with dark green text. Every once in a while, things are really slow loading. Sorry that happened to you, but glad that you managed to read it anyway.

    Hee hee hee! Yes, cruise trumps "perpetual care" for sure. Looks like Stan and his bride got scammed. BTW, mine has a similar title.

    Too late now…. oh well. Good one! :O)
