Mr. Right Meme...from The Jungle Hut

My friend Rita posted this from Fiddledeedee! to her post and I thought it would be fun to do.

It is about my husband, Mickey. My Mr. Right

His age? 74

How tall is he? 6'

How long did you know each other before you got together? We meet one week-end at mutual friends in Santa Fe, NM> He was living in Colorado Springs, Co. - I was living in Albuquerque, NM. The following week-end he came to Albuquerque, NM> The following week-end he came to Albuquerque to visit part of the family of the mutural friends and 7 of us went to a drive-in movie. The next day,The friend called me and said, "Mickey said you were the girl he was going to marry." I not only was shocked but a little put out by the presumption. We married 9 months later!!

What physical features attracted you to him first? His good looks, especially his blue eyes.

What color are his eyes? Blue

His hair color? Black and he still hasMOST of it with some slight graying.

Hair style? Parted and always combed nearly.

Normal outfit? Blue jeans and boots when I met him. Now more casual slacks and buttoned shirt and loafers.

How did you meet? Oops...already answered that above.

How serious is it? Totally. We've been married 48 years and God has truly made us "one flesh".

Are you "in love"? Totally and it grows more and more each day.

Do your parents like him? Yes they did. Very much.

Do his parents like you? Yes they did and treated me lovingly from the first day I met them.

Do you trust him? Totally and completely.

Would you share a toothbrush with him? Yes without even thinking about it.

Would he let you wear his pants? We're not talking figurative are we.......they wouldn't fit!! NO, but he has a way of letting me "think" I do sometimes.

Do you have a shirt of his that you sleep in? No.

Do you like the way he smells? Yes, well....after he's taken his bath from working so hard on the yard and in his garden.

Can you picture having kids with him? Proudly wear that T-shirt!

What bothers you the most about him? That sometimes he doesn't listen to me as closely as I would prefer.

Does he have a temper? He can have if pushed to far, but his basic nature is calm, cool and collected and I love that about him.

Are you happy to be with him? We have been pretty much with each other 24/7 since 1976 when we opened a business together and then we were REA::Y close when we lived 4 years in our 30' 5th wheel while we traveled around the US and Canada.

Does he embarrass you in public? No, but sometimes I'm shocked by how direct he can be. For instance, asking a young person with a pierced nose, "Does your mother know you did that?"?".

Does he smoke or do drugs? No never on drugs. He use to smoke but Praise God gave that up..

Does he have any piercings? That would NEVER happen!

Any tattoos? No, and I'm so thankful for that because many of his age and veterans did that during the war.

Does he have any scars that you know of? Yes, on his leg from a childhool accident with his brother and a cisycle.

Is he a party dude or stay at home? He enjoys being with people, especially good close friends, but he also enjoys staying home.

Is he outgoing or shy? Very friendly6. People like and respect him. Little children love him.

Does he love his mama? Yes he did very much and that is one of the reasons he's been such a wonderful husband. If you want to know how good a husband you will have watch how much he loves his mother and how he treats her.

Would he hang out with you and your friends? Yes, he often does and is quite comfortable doing so.

Sing? Yes in church but not too well (neither do I!!). but he whistles great.
