Ying and Yang



I have been asked by my favorite blogger to lift her heavy burden of providing exciting new content on her blog with regularity. As visitors to this site know, Maisy is all about what's new....what is beautiful ...and what is fun. That is why this guest entry will be so different. You see, I am not new, I'm used. I'm not especially beautiful. And people use a lot of words to describe me, but fun is not usually at the top of the list. So as Maisy's husband and guest blogger, today will be a counterbalance to the usual jumble of stream of consciousness seen in this space. I will tell you a bit about Maisy and me.


Maisy is the ying to my yang. She is the go to my stop. She is the feel to my think. She is the belly laugh to my chuckle. She is the get up and go to my got up and went. She is the fight to my negotiate. She is the let's try something new to my let's keep the status quo.
Now some of you may think this sounds like two polar opposite people...and you would be absolutely spot on. But over the years we have ebbed and flowed and kicked and scratched and somehow come to a place where these uniquely opposite people really came together to balance one another.

Maisy and Bill cheer each other on. They tell each other the way it is. They have each others back...and apparently, they both talk about themselves in the third person!

Now...for those of you who think they have gotten to know Maisy a bit by reading this blog, I will now share with you a secret that only a very few of her closest friends and family know. You will now be an insider. READY...........

MAISY'S TEETH TURN BLUE WHEN SHE DRINKS RED WINE!

Now you know. SHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. Don't tell her I told you.
