Murder Often, Divorce Never


Recommended Posts

Hello and I trust you all had a Merry Christmas. My husband pulled a surprise on me today. After the last of our house guests left he gave me my Christmas present, a 2017 Namiki Emperor Dragon. He made it clear the gift was for Christmas and our 50th anniversary. I am still a bit shell-shocked.


The reference in topic tags I heard for the first time when Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy were asked in a TV interview if they had ever considered divorce. Their answer is the secret to a long and happy and bumpy but never dull marriage.

Love all, trust a few, do harm to none. Shakespeare

My husband has said he'll never get me a pen, for fear he'll buy the "wrong" thing....

So my Christmas present? I'm having to buy it myself, effectively....

ETA: OTOH, he DID mop up the upstairs hallway when I had food poisoning a few years ago (after just getting home from the hospital after back surgery, no less), and I was projectile vomiting for about a day and a half -- I couldn't get to the bathroom, at the other end of the hallway from the bedroom, fast enough...

"It's very nice, but frankly, when I signed that list for a P-51, what I had in mind was a fountain pen."

Wow! Just that. My wife is well aware of my love affair with pens, but I would never expect a gift like this from her! Wonderful for you!

Congratulations on both fronts - a long marriage and a worthy pen (and husband)!

May we live, not by our fears but by our hopes; not by our words but by our deeds; not by our disappointments but by our dreams.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
