ONE CAN SEE

We were in the van heading down a busy street last week. Ron suddenly started making an unexpceted turn into a parking lot.

"What are you doing?" I inquired.

"I'm going to get that good pocket knife." he stated.

"What are you talking about?"

"That good pocket knife in the road."

"If anything, that's a stick. What makes you think you could identify a pocket knife at that speed and that distance much less call it a GOOD pocket knife?"


Well, here is what he retrieved from the middle of the road. It's an Old Timer pocket knife in good condition.



Okay, so I'm blind. I might as well admit that I'm deaf too.

  4. He is so much like my husband who seems to see 'good' stuff everywhere. Thank goodness he did not get hit by a car!

  5. when a man sees something he wants, he gets it----damn the torpedos, full speed ahead. Not like women who can window shop for hours, and come home with nothing.

  7. I would have missed that. In fact, I probably would have run over it and ruined a tire :)

  8. I showed this post to Matt and the 1st thing he said was "Hey, that's a good pocket knife" anyway - men!
    I betcha if you had asked him to find something you needed in the grocery store he would come home with the wrong thing but leave it to a man to make sure and pick up the "good" pocket knife off of a busy street.

  11. question: granny, in all of your expertise, do you not find it odd that a man can spot a perfectly good pocket knife while driving down the road at incredible speeds, yet cannot for the life of them find things like "fennel" at the grocery store? peculiar, is it not.

  12. I have been catching up on reading blogs. I have yet to post anything this month. I haven't felt well, had some cardio tests this week, so now I am reading blogs. My husband would pick up things from the road all the time, he had a good eye. Your pictures are nice and I see that you are enjoying you new internet connection.

  13. Ron has a keen eye for manly things. If that had been a diamond bracelet, you'd have spotted it for sure!!

    :-)

    Taylor spotted a hat once that was in the gutter when we were in Savannah, GA. Taylor likes to wear fedoras, and that's what he spotted. We turned the car around thinking that the hat HAD to be a hideous piece of junk, but it turned out to be clean and a very nice looking black fedora. Taylor has it right alongside his other hats.

  15. My grandfather could spot things like that. It's a nice knife...glad he didn't get run over while he was "saving" it. Glad, too, that you are enjoying quicker internet. I'd be so lost without mine.
