Don has lots of opinions: On being a buffoon: I hate being a buffoon, but it seems like Im always messing up. Not long ago I got in the car with my wife to run some errands. I took the TV remote with me just in case I had to make a cell phone call.MoreDon has lots of opinions: On being a buffoon: I hate being a buffoon, but it seems like Im always messing up. Not long ago I got in the car with my wife to run some errands. I took the TV remote with me just in case I had to make a cell phone call. Nancy made fun of me, and I tried to use the mute button on her, but it didnt work. On his 37th Anniversary: We returned home and wandered off to bed at 10:00. Nancy donned her Born to Sleep PJs and I was asleep before my head hit the pillow. When we were newly married this is not the way we would have anticipated our 37th anniversary ending, but in 2004 it was just fine. So much for romance. Its still there- its just different. On fasting: Fasting is a fundamental Christian practice, and it is mentioned 33 times in the Bible. Now, let me ask a question. When was the last time you heard a sermon on the subject of fasting? Youll hear a hundred sermons on eschatology, a thousand on tithing or how many angels you can stack on the head of a pin before a preacher will suggest a Christian forego his or her staple of donuts, fried chicken or baked beans. Actually, I dont mind fasting- its just the hunger I object to. On remodeling the house: What on earth do we need a new toilet for? I protested. Nancys response was: The old toilet was the wrong shade of white. The wrong shade of white?! You got to be kidding me! Our 401K is in the toilet due to the economy, and now Im spending my kids inheritance replacing a toilet that is the improper shade of white!!
