Paul strikes again…

Posted by: | Comments (0)

Heart ArtThe Fall is a very busy season for all of us.  There are lots of festivals, football games, tailgating parties and community events.  As we are in the countdown days of the local Fall for the Arts event my wonderful husband, Paul, strikes again but not in a way you may imagine.

Read here for his latest “heart felt” blog post.

Paul writes:

“Tonight is a night for celebration.  Mary and I ate dinner together!

I guess that bears a little explaining.

Today I had a need… (Don’t go there!).  Mary and I have been working really hard, thanks to all of you (come on!  That was a genuine “Thank you”!).  Recently, I’ve been catching up on taxes (Oct 15th).  To do so I had to go into the office about 6 AM each morning for several days.  Once that was done there was a delivery to be made in Maryland.  Before I could get home from that trip Mary and Autumn left for market and were gone for 4 days.  In addition, we’re ramping up to Fall for the Arts this weekend at Lake Gaston.  As Chairman I’ve had a lot going on.  Then, there is still Mary Sherwood Lake Living requiring time and attention.  So there sometimes isn’t enough time for Paul and Mary.

So, it’s been about 2 weeks since Mary and I have even had the privilege of having breakfast together!

If you’ve been around me at all you know I love to kid about how it’s necessary for the guy to keep his head down or how that information may be above the guy’s pay-grade!  Most of my buddies agree:  things would be a lot simpler and easier if we didn’t have to translate woman-speak into man-speak.

All of which is pointing up the differences between Mary’s and my approach to things in general.

I don’t know how it is for each of you, but it appears that, none the less, I do miss my wife when I don’t see her for a while. And I have to say, I needed some time where Mary and I just enjoyed being together.  And that’s what we did at the dinner table last night.  The conversation was all work-related, but we both just enjoyed being able to share something we both love.”

Thanks, Paul! How I do love this man!

Now that we have totally become sentimental for a brief moment in time I have to remind you there is still time to purchase tickets for the 3rd Annual Fall for the Arts sponsored by O’Sail.  It is this Saturday, October 23, 10 AM – 5 PM.  Purchase tickets from our store or at the site(s) the day of the event.

I’ll be roaming the sites and hope to see a lot of MSLL friends.

It is going to be a beautiful Fall weekend at Lake Gaston for the art tour!



BTW… Coming soon-our picture blog of Hot Trends from High Point!
