William's Blog...with a smile!


My wife is like an old car.

Yes it is true. My wife is like an old car.

Late summer she had some major dental work.

Next in November she had complete knee surgery.

Today she had catarac surgery in the first eye.

In a  couple of weeks she will have the other one done.

Next it will be the bunions and hammer toes. (By her admission she wore heels to  long.

And then the second knee.


See, just like an old car. Once you start fixing it is a continuous job

Now, after all of this I will get her a new paint job and...good as new!

Mine runs like a top without any major repairs. Oil changed every 3,000 miles and a tune-up whenever she sputters. That said the driveway entrance looks similar William.

That's my husband, described to a T. I call it the surgery of the year. At this point I just tell him each year "tell me where to deliver you and when to pick you up and don't tell me much more."

Good morning William. Neither the wife or I need any major repairs yet, but then again tomorrow will come. Enjoy your day

That is a lot to get done, but it does sound like she will be a brand new woman before too long!

Just not sure you should tell your wife she is like an old car. She might swerve off the road and put you in the hospital!

Good morning William. Things do seem to happen like this. One things leads to another. I hope she is doing well.

Good morning William.  Just don't think about trading her in for a new model.  That could get really expensive!

There are a couple of really good comments here just like the cartoon you shared! LOL!

Sounds like you will have the bionic woman at home with you when all is finished. Love the cartoon.

You had better not show this post to your wife, William.  Otherwise, she may collect her decrepit body parts and beat you over the head with them!

Well, if we really look at our bodies the comparisions are very accurate
