Dad did it

Mom did it

My Sis does it

My Bro does it

Certain friends do it

Favorite cousin does it

Now, for the first time in knowing Wayne over 50 years and being married for over 48 of them, Wayne did it – once to me.

He was very sleepy resting in a recliner, covered in a warm blanket.

I got on my knees and told him I was “Jean, your wife.”

He smiled at me dreamily and said, “Zhjeannie.”

I nearly fell flat. Never heard him ever refer to me as Jeannie.

When I recounted this to my neighbor, she said he always referred to you as Jeannie to them! Who knew?

    I don’t know if you remember me but you used to comment on my blog way back when. I found myself wondering how you and your husband were doing and am glad to see you are still blogging. Happy New Year to you and Wayne.
