The secret to a long marriage

At First Community Church they have a weekly husbands' marriage seminar. At the session last week, the pastor asked Giuseppe, who was approaching his 50th wedding anniversary, to take a few minutes and share some insight into how he had managed to stay married to the same woman for all these years.
Giuseppe replied to the assembled husbands, "Well, I've a-tried to treat-a her nice-a, spenda da money on her, but besta of alla is, I tooka her to Italy for the 25th anniversary!"
The pastor responded, "Giuseppe, you are an amazing inspiration to all the husbands here! Please tell us what you are planning for yiour wifefor your 50th anniversary!"
Guiseppe proudly replied, "I'm agonna go get her!"

While attending a Marriage Seminar dealing with communication, Tom and his wife Grace listened to the instructor, "It is essential that husbands and wives know eachother's likes and dislikes." He addressed the men, "Can you name your wife's favorite flower?" Tom leaned over, touched his wife's arm gently and whispered, "It's Pillsbury, isn't it?

Thanks for the laugh!

And, the comments about Project Runway!

I think Mitchell will be heading home this week. He just HAS to go home!!! I think the first 2 to get kicked off just might have been worse than him. The first girl that was kicked off was from here. She was a little crazy... but the almost nude model was quite shocking!!!

We are watching the model show right after and are really enjoying it. It is very interesting. That Heidi sure is a clever (and RICH) woman!

The secret to a long lasting marriage is when the husband learns two little words... "Yes Ma'am".

You're welcome, Mrs. NB! From what I've observed on PR, it seems to me that Mitchell spends alot of time goofing off and then runs in to time-management problems towards the end. AND those shorts? What was he thinking? I mean, I think a pretty amateurish sewer could have done better than he did on those humongous legs! Heavens!
Yes, the young girl was PRETTY spacey as was the oriental young man. BUT Mitchell had better step it up this week! Make it work!!! :-)
And it is so interesting to see the models' perspective, hm?
I enjoy discussing this with you, Mrs. NB! :-)
