Sunday Short---He's Got It, He's Finally Got It!

I've said before that Paul really doesn't complain much about anything I do. But he has been known to grouse a bit over these last four months about the time I've been spending at the computer. He assumes it's all about my "stupid blog" although I do work here, too.

He reads my blog but not usually unless I've left it open and he sits down to check his own email. And I know he has enjoyed several of my posts. Last evening we went to a Porketta at the rod & gun club he belongs to. It was not a pig roast where they actually roast a pig on a spit over an open fire, it was just a fund-raising dinner where they happened to be serving pork.

As we sat at the picnic table with friends he asked if I had my camera. I didn't. It's always in my car, and we had taken his truck. Honestly, I didn't expect there would be anything to photograph or I would have brought it.

Then he said...."I thought you would write a post about the porketta."

He's got it, he's finally got it!!

They are thick but husbands do eventually catch on.

Glad he got it. Mine gets it, he likes that it keeps me busy and I am making friends. I use to play games all day. So don't you have a camera in your phone? My husband belongs to a gun club. He loves to go target shooting. Hope you had a good time.

I love it! My husband is starting to do the same too. He still complains I spend too much time blogging, but now he offers suggestions for posts.

Isn't it wonderful when they finally see the light!

Sandy I had to chuckle at this post and your sweet hubby!
Mine's finally "got it" as well and paused this morning at each step of the recipe we made for a photo. He even took several of them himself and didn't bat an eye.
HeHe! Blogging is so fun.

~Blessings, ~Melissa :)

It's always nice when a spouse "gets" your hobby.

My husband is the same way. He acts like he has no interest in the blog at all, but then out of the blue, he'll say "you should write about this in your blog."

That's so cute! I love when they finally buy in!

my husband gets a little annoyed too, but he does like helping me find things to take pictures of. He especially likes the photo scavenger hunts.

Oh, those husbands can fool ya sometimes! Mr. Fairway reads my blog, but hardly ever says anything about what I post. Every so often, though, he leaves a comment when it tickles his fancy!

Tammy Howard said...

Tom actually had a blog before I did. He is a beautiful writer, but not very prolific. He thinks longer about a comment than I think about a post.

That being said, Yay Paul!!!

Anita said...

I love this!! My family often comments when we are out and about, oh gosh I bet mom is going to blog about this!

hahahaha

My husband never reads my blog; not because I care if he does; he just doesn't understand this whole world at all (sometimes I don't either :) ). He does know about my penchant for taking photos of the strangest things though. :)

What is a Porketta? Waiting for the post and the pix!
