An Italian Anniversary

At the church's husband's marriage seminar, the Priest asked Luigi, on his upcoming 50th wedding anniversary, to take a few minutes and share some insight into how he managed to stay married to the same woman all these years.

Luigi replied to the audience "Well, I'v-a tried to treat-a her well, spend-a the money on her, but-a, da best-a is-a dat I took her to Italy for the 20th- anniversary!

The Priest immediately commented, "Luigi, you are an amazing inspiration to all the husbands here! Please tell the audience what you are planning for your wife for your 50th anniversary..."

Luigi proudly replied, "I'm-a gonna go and-a get her."


Ed Note:
My dear fellow bloggers, Please forgive my fairly extended absence. Instead of today's joke, I should write a novel relaying events of previous weeks. Cliff note version: My elder cow gave a surprise birth to a new bull calf - I have named Who's the Daddy; my long-time barn cat who moved to the farm with me has disappeared or gone off to die; Best friend borrowed money from me and decided to not return my phone calls anymore; Survived a huge flood that gave us 12 inches of rain in 24 hours; Hubby initiated divorce proceedings which of course I don't want and have been devastated; met and dated a guy for a couple weeks who has pancreatic cancer and didn't treat me so well (meds or his general attitude?); was stood up on a couple of dates with other jerks; then last week met the neatest man in line at the store - we have been inseparable. Don't want to jinx myself, so I will leave you with the promise of REALLY updating and visiting your sites soon. Thank you for your continued cyber friendship and support! Cyber hugs, NoMas

Please, please God or whoever is listening up there -- let Nomas have soemthing wonderful happen to her, that balances out all those other things that have caused her distress this year.
And so it is.
Amen.

Fingers crossed.

Well, something positive was in this post! The "man in line". Good luck with that NoMas...and glad to see you're still around.

Sorry to "hear" about the upcoming divorce.

NoMas said...

Annie: What a wonderful prayer for me - thank you.

Hammer: You deserve the best as well my friend - perhaps we need to do a voodoo prevenntion spell! he he

Fox: hmm, does this mean you found someone that is deserving of you?

Slick: yeah, man, I've made the 13 year "failure run" too. Dang, it's the worst to feel inadequate and a failure on top of all the emotions. Just damn for damn for damn.

Flyinfox_SATX said...

Nomas -

In answer to your question here...yes I have.

marriage counselor said...

YOU are not inadequate, and YOU are not a failure. I read that in a book once, and I believe it.

Dick said...

Damn girl.
Do I need to come down there and give you a hug?

I've been fine hon, thanks for asking. Well, other than I drive women bat shit crazy because they don't get my spiritual journey.

But it's okay, I need what I need, and I won't accept anything less.
