He and Me....

Me & Mr. B ............

His and Hers........

Yours & mine........

The differences are there. So are the similarities....

He can start a sentence – I can finish it.

He thinks of something for dinner, I come in and suggest the same thing..

I think about calling him, and the phone rings...it's HIM!

We both crack the same smart-alec jokes at the same time..
But, then there are the differences..
Shoes and socks all year - no matter what..............
Socks in winter, bare feet in summer - no matter what...

Snuggled under the covers..........

Sleeping with no covers..........
His nightstand.........


my nightstand..............


My hat................ His hat........



My powder-room necessities............His powder-room necessities..............

His mug for a cuppa..............


My mug for a cuppa..........


His front room side table...

My front room side table...

His favorite spot...

My favorite spot..........


( I feel that I must insert a real true fact here...really, truly, factyally...90% of people sit on the left side of the sofa....so if you're buying second-hand, be sure to test the left-side!)
(oh, and another fact....5/3rds of people don't understand fractions...)
(oh, and we have 2 sofas. We both sit on the left side..I don't sit in his lap...just in case you were wondering...)
For all the sames and the differences, we are a perfect match.

However.. we don't always match perfectly....

But the one thing I've discovered is to celebrate the differences and to cherish the sames....

How about you & yours??

Even if your "yours" happens to be a fur-baby..(not, not a hairy guy, silly, like a pet...)
Let us know....
-me...oh and Lulu-Belle

We just celebrated 34 years..love the similarities AND the differences!

I see that Mr. B has the remote on his side table and you have the phone on yours...wonder how many households are the same? Kinda says something about our society, don't you think?

As for fur kids...Duffy is thin, hyper and can be snappish. I am thin, hyper and used to be snappish, before the "change". Remember when Gloria told Archie Bunker that Edith was going through the change? Archie said, "If you're gonna change, do it NOW!" If it were that easy, no one would be snappish, eh?

Love ya.

Hi Colleen ~ I am so glad to hear that you aren't sitting in his lap while you relax in your family room! That might get uncomfortable after awhile. HA! I loved reading this post! My hubby and I are really more UNlike than alike.. You know how they say opposites attract? Well... that's us.

Lived with him 3 years,married to him 20 years, divorced from him 5 years, thought it was the perfect match, but life throws at you many degrees of differences in a person's personality...I couldn't live with his any longer...maybe it was his girlfriend...I know I can be intense...but gimme a break here.

I have a certain degree of longing to have what you gals have, but for now...Mr. Right is still searching for me and I know I will be receptive when he arrives...but giving up my freedom is something that I'm not sure I can handle right now...I'm in the wind...
