If you knew my wife you would think of ante bellum Florida, honeysuckle and orange blossoms all dripping sweetness and that’s a true picture . On the other hand as my friend Charles Reynolds says, “It’s a mighty thin board what‘s only got one side to it.” Let me give you an example of the other side of my wife.
I had been suffering with a cold and was too stubborn to go to a doctor. Wife was getting tired of me moping around the house and decided to make me an appointment with our primary physician. The receptionist said there was no way they could fit me in that day, they were jammed up. It took about fifteen minutes for my wife to convince the lady behind the desk that I was seriously ill and couldn’t wait another day to see a doctor unless they wanted to take the responsibility for my death. The lady gave in and said they would try and work me in if I didn’t mind waiting. Wife drove me down and when we got there she said, “Now listen here boy, when you get in there you dang well better be sick.” I could feel my fever rising when I walked through the door.
