  1. that is crazy about the bacterial menegitis!! In college there was a breakout in a dorm, so scary! Your hubby sounds like a great man!

  2. He sounds a lot like my husband, other than the sports and the cooking. Chris played sports but hates watching them, and he pretty much has no clue how to cook. He does like everything outdoors and talks alot. haha

  3. He sounds like a great guy! My husband will also talk to anyone in random places! Oh, and don't get me started on the sports obsession!

  4. I love this! He seems like such a great guy! I already knew that though. ;) I too meet friends at gas pumps. Girl I met a little old lady in line at the dollar general and she asked for my # soshe coukd visit with me and teale and she invited us to her church fall festival. D isnt sports crazy, I love baseball. I wish he liked sports a little more. I wanna hear aboit the menegitis.
