Pool Time

Yes, I took the camera in the pool to take this. I see this while the sun comes up...

Early AM conversation... I found a  piece of paper that looked like a wipe that had dried up, lying on Bob's chest of drawers. We have no wipes in the house.

Me: Bob, what is this piece of dried paper?
Bob: it is a wipe that dried out.
Me: I can tell that, but where did you get it?
Bob: I don't know,.
Me: How can you not know where you got it.
Bob: I meant I don't know where I got it.,
Me: How can you NOT know where you got it?
Bob: Because I DON"T KNOW where I got it.
I walk into the bathroom where he is getting ready and say with slow enunciated words.

I...know...what...it...is...a ...dried wipe.... I....did....not....buy....any.... wipes.....so....where...did....you....find....it...in....this...house?

OH he says, it is the wipes we got with my hearing aids... that was 3 years ago and he has never used one and I had forgotten we had them... simple things become so complicated...

Life can I fatten times be a mystery! Glad you got that one solved! Happy Monday! Just one more Monday this month! I better crank up the stereo with my Neil Diamond music!

It's funny how people process things differently. You say something and of course it makes perfect sense to you but someone else hears it and gets a whole different meaning. That happens here all the time. Sometimes I think I'm speaking a foreign language when I'm talking to Wade.

love your conversations... and the view from your pool!

Does he wear his hearing aids? How much hearing loss does he have? Phil just got two of them a couple months ago, and is still deciding if he wants to keep them. Your hearing seems perfect.

I'm nodding my head here, sounds like some of our conversations but at least Tom has started to wear his hearing aids again so things are getting better, ha ha

Hello Sandra. I am glad the mystery of the wipe was solved.

Your conversations sound familiar, like the kind my hubby and I have. Happy Monday, enjoy your new week ahead!

Stunning view from the pool. John will come up with something that must be 10 years old some days and I wonder, where has that been??? I guess we've been moving the same junk around for 10 years!

Lolol. Yes, life can certainly be a mystery at times. We sometimes have miscommunication because Mr. C. will speak in generalities and I tend to be very literal and exact. It makes for seemingly needlessly long explanations at times. So we get a conversation that is "what I meant" vs. "the words you actually used". Lol So hilarious about your wipe conversation.

Good for you. It pays to repeat over and over when hubby has not a clue . Are you sure he had his ear piece in when you asked him. Ha-ha.

Another morning laugh for me or is a big confusion conversation to you. Ha-ha.

Well you posted it. So for all eyes to read as we cannot hear. You turned off the sound. Ha-ha.

What a lovely conversation. You made me both laugh and miss my Errol.

Things like that happen here all the time...only I'm the one forgetting where I got or where I put something.
