A farmer one mile away made 92 and passed on.He had been sick for about a year so it had been a while since i last saw him .Grandma got me dressed up in something other than bibs and off i went.When i got inside at the funeral home my friend looked different and i didn't know a soul in the place.I found a chair and set for a while then a woman walked over and shook my hand.She told me she was Darwin's wife and asked who i was?? Soon a dim light came on that i was there to see my friend Dewy off!!!!!!!!! Maybe tomorrow i will get it right?? Dumb but well intended Bud in Wheeler,Mi.
Yes, it happens. Similarly, there's nothing worse than going to a Saturday auction on Sunday !!
Sometimes on an week-long HCCA tour a couple is enjoying the ride and the scenery, but wondering why they haven't seen any other old cars. Then they wake up to the fact that they're driving Thursday's tour on Tuesday.
Bud, my grandparents died in February 1960 on the same day (6 hours apart and neither knowing the other had died). Hard on my dad, who was their only child. At the funeral home during the visitation, one couple came up and began explaining that they were neighbors, and a long story about their relationship. It was about five minutes into the conversation that things start not matching exactly. Turns out that the funeral home had sent them to the wrong parlor. The sympathy was genuine, just misdirected....
A girl in the city is sick and calls her mother to whine about her troubles.
"Oh, poor baby", the mom says. "Let me come over to help. I'll bring a pot of fresh chicken soup and loaf of my bread. And while I'm there I'll do all the laundry, clean house, go grocery shopping for you and cook a weeks worth of suppers which we'll put in the freezer for when Paul comes home at night."
"Paul?" the girl says. "Who's Paul"?
"Dear, Paul is your loving husband".
"But my husband's name is Steve. . . . . Is this 276-8441?"
"No. . . . this is 276-8414 !"
"Oh. . . . does that mean you're not coming?"
Scott,I think you should find that woman's phone number and we will all call her!! Bud in Wheeler,Mi.
Years ago, my wife and I were invited to a party at a friends house. We had been to their house many times but they live on one of those streets where all the houses look pretty much alike. There were a lot of parties going on that night on that street (I think it was New Years' Eve). We walked into what we thought was our friends' house, starting enjoying ourselves and helping ourselves to the food and drinks. Well, you guessed it. We were in the wrong house!!! Man, did we leave there in a hurry!!!.
OH so that was you Marty!...Please forward $43.50 for the food and drinks!
Your story reminded me of a News Years party my wife and I were hosting for friends and family one year. We invited around 50 people and figured food and drinks for 60 because sometimes people bring others with them. Well...at one count my wife and I believe there were 200 people at the house. Everyone had brought additional guests because they knew we would'nt mind. You want to talk about scrambling around for additional food and drinks! We survived and I think that may have been the last New Years Eve party we hosted I think we went out after that until the children arrived.
