Bondo calls Bruno!

Bondo knows how to Feast!!! And Bruno can eat!
Great friends, great food, good times ! Food, cigars, wine what could recharge a man more! Bondo cooks better than any man I know other then hubby...And the 20 years plus leaves alotta room for good conversation!
Well I had a call this morning from hubby..He said Bondo is on his way to his old ( other ) homestead in Cashmere, Washington. Now Bruno and Bondo are very good friends...I told hubby he should leave here on Saturday and spend the night up there and then return to the shack on Sunday...I figured that hubby is coming home Thursday night as he has a CAT scan on Friday morning...I would still have a visit and hubby could also get a bonus visit outta the deal with Bondo. I just would hope there would be no repeat of the photo series of their last visit. ( I would be hung should I share them with you) Anyway he said "no" he would have dinner with him Sunday and stay home Saturday with me...Now he has NEVER not taken my offers about Bondo time. So I sat here and thought for some time...mainly " who is he and what has he done with my husband?"

So after putting myself ( at least attempted to) in his shoes I have come to realize it is I who has caused my hubby to forfeit such an offer. You see last night I had a little meltdown of sorts....As each call we have had since hubby has left back to work has started with me saying " do you want the bad news or the really bad news?" Hence he feels that he must come home and try to repair what has gone haywire. Most of which I can handle on my own. I know he (hubby) feels like he has left me here to deal with it on my own....BUT the real fact is I can do it all and love the fact he wants to help out. I knew the minute he started working out of the area I would be on my own for awhile and would not have him here daily... Anyway I wanted to let him know that I think his friendship with Bondo is important not just for him but for me too....That hubby does not get to see Bondo like he use to when everyone lived in the same state.




Alright so now I think we should all vote about what should happen....Should hubby have Saturday dinner and smoke cigars, drink and have great conversation with his BEST BUDDY who is visiting for only a week....or does he stay 15 extra hours with wife? Who will feel guilty for the next six months that the boys do not have GUYS NIGHT! They have not seen each other in over 6 months....Prior to marring me they spent holidays and weekends doing guy things... The both need GUYS TIME....




I VOTE FOR A GUYS NIGHT @ BONDOS!

I vote for bondo/bruno time..this is the second wife's vote. the wife's best friend votes for bondo/bruno time too. So does my vote count for two?

I vote for guys to have guy time too. As much as we women miss our men, we know they always come back energized and ready to love on us even more after some good, testosterone-filled time. This would be why I encourage climbing adventures, glacier-scaling trips, and the like. Yes, Bondo and your hubby should hang out together, just this time.

OK I had to do it, I called Bondo on the road and told him about your post, I'm sure you know what his vote is! My vote is the same, let'm have at it. I checked airline prices to the NW so I could possibly drop in on the fun, but the truth is, it's to darn cold there and I've never seen the California Shack. So...Nashville to Sacramento the following weekend. Gonna double team Bondo two weekends in a row. I haven't seen him in years. Known him for 33 years? Looking forward to meeting Bruno and his farm fairy another time. I enjoy your blog.

Please encourage everyone to vote. Ken you KNOW THEY NEED This TIME !!! I will beg Bruno to go...I offered the second I heard that he was on his way up. This farm fairy loves her hubby but she knows that her man needs his guy time ...He too knows this as well...If the world will vote for him to go I think he would not have wife guilt....

guy time can be a very good thing. but i can see why he'd want to spend time with his beloved... sorry, i'm neutral in this one...

Grace said...

My vote is for guy time, because they need it... man you are one sacrificial wife... I'd have a fit if my hubby could only be home for a short time and took off to be with the guys!! Then again, it was your idea!!
