Do you get tired (as I do) of repeating yourself? I have told mr. kenju many,many times what to do for his headaches, congestion and other nasal symptoms, until I am blue in the face. Does he listen??

Today at the doctor's office, he broached the subject with the doc. Guess what the directive was? The same thing I've been telling him for at least 2 years: use saline nasal spray four times per day, two sprays per nostril. (Picture me hitting my head against a brick wall? I might as well have.)

Great quotes!!!!!

As to Mr. K., you don't have 'M.D.' after your name. God knows if men listened to their wives, I might still be married.

Oh Judy, I had to laugh at you and Mr. Kenju and the Dr.!! I've been there, done that, and finally got him to go to the Dr. and what did he find? high blood pressure and load more other things, PLUS to do all the things I;ve been telling him for the last 10 years!!!

Men!!!

Love those quotes as I had not heard them before. Words to live by. My husband says that his hearing is not going, it just he doesn't focus any more!

If my years on earth have taught me nothing else, they have taught me that: 1) women believe what men say, more than is warranted, 2) men believe what women say, less than is warranted - whether there is an MD, a PhD, or anything else after her name. As with Kay, HH and I might not have been divorced for 11 years if the two statements were untrue. It's enough to make a woman spitting mad! (Or...at least this woman.)

Actually I picture you hitting Mr.Kenju in the back of his head with a brick! Why do we even bother to talk to them?

"The longer I live, the move convinced I become that other planets are using Earth as an insane asylum." George Bernard Shaw had it right.

Really great quotes.

Men and health issues... mmm... one of our regular discussion topics here at home. It must be something about that "y" chromosome.

The Evil Twin is the same - he'd rather sit around and moan about a headache as opposed to taking something for it!

I love this one: "The longer I live, the more convinced I become that other planets are using Earth as an insane asylum."

Priceless!

...we have started using a Neti Pot too... I balked for the longest time, but the effects are always noticeable. It has the same saline effect. :)

I love the 1st quote. :)
