No Bumper Stickers

I’ve been married to Dave almost 28 years, and I’ve known him for 35.  In that time, I’ve learned he has some hard-and-fast rules.  Just a few, really:

#1: Do not write about Hubby in the blog.

#2: Never disobey Rule #1.

#3: Refrain from giving or throwing away his stuff.

#4: Never put carrots in stir-fry.

#5: Christmas illumination does not take place before Black Friday.

#6: Always have JIF peanut butter in the house.

#7: Don’t wash the dishes when there’s a movie on.

#9: Don’t break (any more) fishing poles.

#10: No bumper stickers.

Obviously, these little rules are a cinch.  And he’s amiable enough; case in point, today I disregarded the first two!

An observer might think I cheated on Rule #10; but he okayed the coffee logo.  And I agree with him: who wants their car to look like a toilet stall in a gas station? Anyway, most bumper stickers aren’t worth the 20 square inches they’re printed on.

They do have some clever ones, though.  If not for the hindrance to traffic safety and general tackiness, these copyrighted slogans may have found their way to destroying my paint job:
