Oneta 84

I’m having a bit of a laugh about my blog from yesterday.  Only my son and his wife even slightly suggested their menu before marriage might have included something besides food.  😀  I guess they knew Mom had something in mind besides the obvious.

What do guys and gals offer in order to snag a spouse (besides food, of course)?  Well, maybe a nice clean well-groomed body?  A mannerly walk on the street- side stroll?  Perhaps some nice perfume?  How about a handful of posies?  A nice introduction to ones’ first cousin – or third cousin, twice removed?  A borrowed car to make a big impression?  Maybe even your own car – washed? A talk of dreams which include vacations in the Rocky Mountains, or Florida Everglades?  A smattering of a knowledge?  A look at the moon?  A hint that you would be hot roll in bed?  An offer to go to the church of your choice?  A choice of movies, theater, or ballet?  A serenade on the violin?  A tossed coin to go click on the window pane?  A show-through-shear-shimmering shirt?  A cowhide vest?  A suggestion that you are going to be offered a job as vice-president – definitely a person on the way up?  A two-way conversation that contains full sentences?  An offer to change a tire for your dad?

Or did you give a hint that you might want to dress in sweats, sit on the sofa, watch TV, and snack on cheese bits and pretzels, while the grass is growing and the leaves are accumulating – and the dirty car has a tire that needs air?

Which ever route you took, I’m warning that it has to last a long time.  😀

Smiling at you, Bloggers and

Facebook Friends.

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    I won’t know any of these as it was an arranged marriage.
    My eldest brother with my sister-in-law went to see my future wife (Good Friday and April Fools Day – not sure it was to be good or was I to be fooled) and after five weeks or so we were married and still married after thirty six years.

    Cute, and so true, too! Thanks for sharing and a chuckle or two!!

      I wanted a chuckle. Thank you. 😀 How do you make that heart? Can you make it on the keyboard? Tell me and I’ll send one back to you.

        You’re welcome.
        You can make it on the keyboard that I know of. If you right click where the cursor is blinking in the box the dialogue that comes up has emojis at the top, click it, then at the bottom, click on the heart and when they come up click on the sparkling heart. Hope this made sense!!

  3. Well now, that last blog post went totally over my head…..I only looked at the obvious…food LOL. This twist is much more interesting.
