This year I got Mrs. Curmudgeon something different for Valentine’s Day.

It all started at church a couple weeks ago. My wife returned from the bathroom just after the singing started. The poor old girl’s dress was tucked inside the back of her undies. It was great; the boys and I couldn’t stop laughing.

That’s when this old woman in the pew behind us smacked me on the back of my head. She pointed at my wife’s rump and signaled for me to fix her dress. I nodded and gave the dress a tug; but instead of a thank you, I got my toes stomped. I yelped, but nobody seemed to notice. I’m not much of a singer.

Last week as usual, my wife returned from the lady’s room just after the singing started. I looked at her backside, but her dress hung free. She glared at me as she picked up her hymnal and started singing.

What did I do now?

That’s when the old woman behind me gave me another whack on the back of my head. She pointed at my wife’s rump, nodded and smiled so sweetly. I understood at last; it must be a fashion thing. I reached over, grabbed a handful of her dress and tucked it in.

The hospital only kept me overnight. They are always so nice. I figured I better do something special for Valentines Day to make it up to her. Usually I buy her chocolates, but this year I got her a nice pantsuit, some soft-soled shoes and a six month supply of diet pills.

YOU ARE TERRIBLE!!! Oh man! I'd have kicked ya so hard you'd be singing soprano with the choir! But man that is FUNNY. Oh poor sweet Mrs. Curmudgeon!

BTW~Keegan has begged me to print out the rest of your book. He is on chapter 28 now and plans on writing you soon. He loves it...pirates, zombies, indians, giants, demons, and angels! The only problem he has with it is the mushy love stuff (which of course I love.) But Mr. Fast Reader told me I better have it ALL printed by the morning. So, what have I been doing for the last hour? Yep. Standing by the computer, flipping pages to double side print. Eyeyiyie! I'm on chapter 18 and enjoying it! I'll tell you all my comments soon. Found a couple of typos...no biggie. Are you having it professionally edited right now? Just wondering. Okay, now that I've talked your eyes out, I'll be going...to read more of your fun book. :)

Happy Valentine's Day!
