Well.....My yearly physical is coming up in a few weeks. I have ascertained that my doctor loves to travel, to cruise and loves cats. I brought this potholder to my husband and asked a simple, simple question.......hmmm...."Dear, Does this look like a manly potholder to you???" Now, I ask you...is that not a simple question...would it need a smirk or an incredulous look???? Like potholder and manly were an oxymoron? Then, he backtracked...oh, yes it is very nice..he will really like it.....Lordy, I am a saint!!
