Wife with hearing problem

A man feared his wife was not hearing as well as she used to, and he
thought she might need a hearing aid. Not quite sure how to approach
her, he called the family doctor to discuss the problem.
The doctor told him there is a simple informal test the husband could
perform to give the doctor a better idea about her hearing loss.
"Here's what you do," said the doctor. "Stand about 40 feet away from
her and in a normal conversational speaking tone see if she hears you.
If not, go to 30 feet, then 20 feet, and so on until you get a
That evening, the wife is in the kitchen cooking dinner, and he was in
the den.
He says to himself, "I'm about 40 feet away. Let's see what happens."
In a normal tone he asks , "Honey, what's for dinner?"
No response.
So the husband moves to closer to the kitchen, about 30 feet from his
wife, and repeats,
"Honey, what's for dinner?"
Still no response.
Next he moves into the dining room where he is about 20 feet from his
wife and asks, "Honey, what's for dinner?"
Again, no response.
So, he walks up to the kitchen door, about 10 feet away. "Honey,
for dinner?"
Again, there is no response.
So he walks right up behind her. "Honey, what's for dinner?"
(I just love this.)

That is about right

Good people sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.

Courage and perserverance have a magical talisman; before which difficulties disappear and obstacles vanish into the air.

Pick your company wisely! Hang around people who are going to help you become all God created you to be.

Ultimately, the only power to which a man should aspire is that which he exercises over himself.
