I think we make better renters than homeowners. Our landlord might not agree! Vince leaves before daylight and since we don’t have a garage, he’s kinda stumbling around in the dark. There are good lights under the carport but the lights from the front door to the carport weren’t real bright and besides, when I go out with Speck all by myself at night and Vince isn’t watching me (sometimes I have to be brave and go out alone), it’s real dark out there so yesterday Vince bought a motion light. There’s a front type door leading to our house and there’s a door that goes into the laundry room. Vince was going to put the motion light at the laundry room entrance. I said “there’s already a motion light there!” He said “there is?” Yep, there was but he liked the one he bought better.
If this had been at our house in MO, Vince would have said “I bought a light. Will you call the electrician to install it?” or for the next 11-1/2 months, I would be saying “Are you ever going to put that light up?” Here at the rental .. he comes right home the same day he bought it and installed it!
And it worked . . the first time!
And, then, as happy as I am to have a new light, I said “Hey Mister . . you in that ugly green shirt! Where’s my husband? You look like him. You act like him but my husband would never have come home and put up a light the same day he bought it. I like you! Will you stay?”
And then the man in the green shirt said “Why do you have so much fabric?” and I knew it was really my husband. Even with all the grumbling about my “stuff”, I will keep him and I’m very happy with my new light.
