My Wife Understands Me
by Kevin Synnott

Several years ago when I was 64 years old I said to my wife, "Regis, I am thinking about getting a tattoo. I am also considering buying a HOG, a Harley-Davidson motorcycle." I added, "Yes, that's right and you can ride on the back and be my old lady." She asked, "What do you really want?" I said, "a flagpole." She said, "ok." Later, I got on my knees and thanked God that my plan worked. It is a great flagpole with a light.

Speaking about knees (see above), I was in a car accident when I was in my early twenties. I walk with an obvious limp as a result. Fortunately for me, five years ago I was diagnosed with arthritis in the knee of my other leg. I walk with a limp as a result of the pain in that knee. Now that I limp on both legs it appears that I walk normally.
