:blush: Boom!

Chuckle! Don’t be too unkind…it’s the one reaction I absolutely have never gotten any control over…unexpected compliments of any kind cause me to light up like a brush fire. :smirk:

I can blush right down to my toenails. My mother’s early influence no doubt…gentle southern gals are demure and modest at all times…you know the gig.

With me, it was apparently imprinted. :smile:


My path home every day took me by her work. Once or twice a month I would hit the flower shop for a single red rose and bring it up to her office. Even after decades of marriage - She would blush like a school girl. I loved that!

A woman might smile or say something in gratitude, but when her whole body involuntarily reacts, you know you hit the bullseye!:heart_eyes:


You have the most beautiful way with words. :relaxed:
(Hope your wife appreciates it.)


A huge thank you!!

this is really cool and thanks for putting it together.

One link doesn’t work for me. When I go to the “Splish splash the honeycomb takes a bath” link, I get this error.

“Sorry, you don’t have access to that topic!”

Oops! That one wasn’t ready yet and I forgot to unlink it. (We put these together early in the week.)

It’s being updated and will show up later in some future summary when it’s done…my bad!

Well yeah, there is, but i’m not allowed in either…the Betas have their own board. :relaxed:
