The Wallet

Received an e-mail this morning from Mrs. Buck (whose dad had come to visit the family last week); it read:

Your First Born was complaining to my dad last week because I accidentally washed his wallet. It completely fell apart and all of his cards, money and stuff were scattered throughout the washing machine. He said I owed him a new wallet. Well, I didn’t go get one so, he got a new one himself. This morning he showed it to "K" and said, “It’s Mommy’s job to check all of my pockets before she washes my clothes!” I said, “No, it is your job to empty your pockets before your clothes go in the hamper (if they make it there).” "K" said, “I agree with Dad!” I told Buck that I was going to tell his mom on him, so there!
Mom says -- "We women must stick together; therefore, he needs to empty his pockets before they end up on the floor, I mean in the hamper." That's Brotha Buck for you. ha, ha

Related thought: Wonder what her dad's reaction to that was.

I think it is wonderful that you have a good relationship with your daughter in law. Around my area I don't often hear about such positivity in families with in-laws. That's a blessing. About my writings- the book I would recomend to you is A Hole in My Heart. It is a christian novel that I co-wrote with my 14 year old nephew. I have completed a Christian novel called A Sinner's Cry, that I hope to have published soon. Please visit my website at and join my newsletter.

Buck's right! Mrs Buck owes him a new wallet! The law is very clear on this. The law of deluded husbands... :)

San najki -- you are too funny -- hee hee - I will just have to agree to disagree with you on that one. :-)

In all fairness if Mrs. Buck does decide to check the wallets does she get to keep everything she cash.

You've been nominated!

Actually, Rosemary -- I believe Mrs. Buck meant that he needs to check his pockets to make sure the wallet is not in there before he puts them in the hamper to be washed.
