Scenes from a marriage while on the road...

I do the manly stuff like start up the generator and fill up the fresh water tank, not to mention the four water jugs and two gasoline cans, put on and take off the 50 lb hitch, swap out a burned out electrical receptacle, connect the waste hose for the gray and black water, load up the truck bed, and try to stay fit so I can lift the heavy stuff.

She works her magic in the cramped Airstream kitchen every day and makes the world right for me with flavorful whole foods.

As a friend said to me, we're equally yoked to the same dream.

And then I go sit outside and do some hard thinking as to our next move...

Nothing better than doing what you both do best.

Yeah, we do that, too. Sometimes I think I get the better deal because the "man stuff" is not as time consuming as the "girl stuff".

That's what we do except sometimes I get to cook bad for you but tastes so good dinners and I'm in charge of morning coffee.

Doug did the outside stuff, I took care of inside stuff. Now, I do it all.

He grilled, and made the coffee. Really good coffee....and served it to me.

I didn't know how to make the coffee when he died.....had to do some experimenting, but eventually figured it out.

I still haven't grilled....but have some marinated pork tenderloin in the freezer, and I'm starting to think about it.

Who gets to pick out the music?

To me that is the task that really defines who is feeling in charge that day!

Susan just hollers at me and usually do what I'm told. (shuuuuuu, don't tell her I said this, but she still hasn't figured out the tongue jack)
