Lewis Park -Trees

Oak tree
I stood in Wal-Mart debating on which toilet seat would fit Bob's toilet. There were only two wooden ones, so I had a 50/50 chance of buying the right one.....

I bought the wrong size. So if I had a 50/50 chance why is it that NINE times out of TEN, a 50/50 choice is the wrong one?

another question. Do Men Listen when we talk?

I stood in the living room and said:

 " I am going to WM to return the toilet seat. I know we are going tomorrow to get the pool chemicals but we are out of Pumpkin for the dogs, so I am going now and will stop to visit Rich on the way home."

I pick up my keys and Bob says..... "if you are going out, don't forget you need to exchange the toilet seat."

I REST MY CASE! and he did For Real say this. Of course he was watching Drag Racing while I was talking.

I had to laugh when I read Bob's reply. My hubby has done the same thing to me. I think guys have fine tuned selective hearing.

That Golden Poinciana is gorgeous!

Those photos of the golden flowers are so cheering. There's a dull light here in the north of the UK today so the yellow flowers on the screen really stand out. The toilet situation made me laugh. At least you knew which was the right size when you went back to exchange!

Men are funny aren't they? Or is it us women that have to have a good sense of humour to put up with them...?

LOL!

Love the yellow in your photos ~ pretty!

TeeHee! No, they don't listen. Nor do they ask for directions.

EM Illustrator said...

Beautiful pictures :) And I had to laugh about the part where Bob didn't listen...that is so typical.
Have a great day!

I laughed so hard at this conversation. I told Pat, "this is so us!!!" No, they do not listen... We say they don't listen to us and I guess they would say that they don't because we talk too much! This was funny! I needed a good laugh. Beautiful pictures.
Love ya, Madeline

Beautiful tree to sit under and snap photos. LOVE the yellow flowers.

I have known that for some time, men to not hear most of what woman talk to them about.

Deb said...

that happens at my house to...I go into great detail of what I'm about to do...then hubby tells me what I should do...which is exactly what I just told him I was doing..Watching drag racing does something to their brain cells...love that yellow...wish we had some pretty blooms right now...so HOT..so DRY....

Susannah said...

I think they are all pretty much the same. Gotta love 'em!

I just love those yellow flowers....so bright and cheerful!

Pretty and different yellow flower.

Mmmmm, brave man there... Preferring a wooden seat. -giggles- OK when new, but can 'pinch' when old and worn. ,-)

Wait a minute.... My spouse has a similar tendency when it comes to listening to my vital comment. At least I have an excuse as I occasionally forget to put on my hearing aid... :)

I love the different trees and flowers.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Sandra, of course, Bob probably heard every word on the drag racing. Glad to know you must be feeling better cause you are back to blogging and snapping.

Ann said...

When you figure out the answer to the 50/50 question let me know because I almost always make the wrong choice too. come to think of it I also wonder if Wade ever listens to anything I say. Are you sure this whole thing didn't happen at my house?....lol

Maple Lane said...

Funny story about Bob! John still "can't" hear me most of the time even with hearing aids!!!
Lovely photos today, Sandra.
Hope you have a relaxing evening.

Dee said...

I think men listen if not focused on something else.:) If your Bob was watching TV.or reading...you were talking to dead ears.

Andrew said...

Haha! and here's me thinking it's women that don't listen.
Every day is a school day lol.
Hugs Drew xx

Smiling while I enjoy these cheerful flowers.

Chatty Crone said...

HAHA - you Bob is my Rick - exactly! He will say something - the same thing - right after I say it. Lol

And I hated true and false tests - I always did better on essays - lol. I never could guess the right answer!

Lol, sandie

SweetMarie said...

Your Bob is such a typical man! This is so true around my house including with my son! LOL Your blooms are beautiful! We just got our first bloom on the powder puff! I'll have to take a pic!

Betsy Adams said...

Hi Sandra, Love the color of the poinciana. Pretty!!!

Funny story about who is NOT listening!!!!!! ha ha....

We recently bought two new toilets for our bathrooms. We got the water-saver ones --and the tall ones for us OLD people.... ha

Hugs,
Betsy

Gunn said...

Beautiful!!:)

diane b said...

Hee hee most commenters agree with you about men not listening. Mine doesn't either but what I hate more is that he doesn't answer my questions either. I've never seen a yellow poinciana before, its very pretty.
