Poop, Kissing, And Marriage Advice

This is what I see from my back porch.
Doesn't suck, does it?

No. It does not.

Just a slow regular day here in Lloyd. Got sheets in the washing machine and the chickens are out pecking around. I need to clean out the hen house. I'll tell you one thing I know: nine chickens poop a lot more than four chickens do.
Which is fine. I use their poop in the garden.

Speaking of poop, Lily just called to tell me that Owen pooped on the potty today all by himself. She and Jason were lazing around and Owen came in and demanded a lolly-pop and they said, "No," but then they discovered that he'd pooped and that's his reward so did he poop on the potty and then remember that he was qualified to get a lolly-pop or did he want a lolly-pop and so pooped on the potty in order to get one?

Who knows? Not me.

I hope he got a lolly-pop though.

It's my anniversary and I am discussing poop. Well, that's the way it goes. I remember the day we got married, Mr. Moon and I. It was a day as beautiful as this one. I wore dotted swiss, he wore a tux and brand new Nikes. I think they were Nikes.

We kissed before the notary said we could.

Then we kissed again when she gave us permission.

Been a whole lot of kissing going on ever since.

Life is all about kissing and poop, too. Funny how they don't really mention poop in the wedding ceremony. They probably should.
There's a lot they don't mention in the ceremony that they probably should but it would last too long and you'd never get to the kissing part.

Well. Here we are. I'm going to go out into this beautiful day and hang the sheets on the line, take a walk, start some venison in the crock pot, go to town and maybe find a little something to give to my husband of twenty-seven years.

Twenty-seven years.

I wish I had some advice on how to make a marriage last but I really don't. I guess if I did it would be something like treat the other person the way you want to be treated, pride doesn't have much place in a marriage and ego doesn't either. Also, remember that there's going to be some poop and don't forget to kiss.

Love...Ms. Moon


  1. What great advice Ms. Moon. Congratulations on all those many years of happiness.

  2. Oh, I meant to say also, I love your backyard!

  3. That is the best advice I have ever heard regarding love and marriage, Mary Moon! No wonder you and Mr. Moon have racked up 27 years of shared kisses, bliss and poop. Happy, happy anniversary and I wish you many more years of sweet togetherness!

  4. Best advice I've ever heard too.
    Thanks Ms Moon and have a sweet and lovely day filled with kisses.
    and not too much poop.

  5. Happy Anniversary!

    Here's to more kissing and less poop.

  7. Well that did not turn out as I wanted but I still hope you enjoy your day. Much love to both of you.

  8. and many more....congrats to you and your husband!


  9. Congratulations Moons, you are damn good role models!

  10. I just wish that Joey would poop. I really don't mind much where he poops just that he does. He's been holding it in for weeks now. Even with the help of benefiber and miralax he has a good tight squeeze on things. Gaahhhkkk!

  11. Cheers to you both! I hope martinis and lots of kisses are involved.

  12. We are doing all of that. We kiss as much as we can without being randy in public. No pooping in public which is good. Happy anniversary to you both!

  13. That advice sounds about right. Happy Anniversary!

  14. Rubye Jack- Thank-you! For both!

    Kati- Some of the lessons have come hard-earned. But the kissing was easy.

    Ms. Magpie Woman- Good wishes! Thanks!

    Ms. Fleur- Well, it's all important.

    Birdie- It was beautiful and greatly appreciated. Thank-you.

    Mrs. A- Aw. Thanks.

    Juancho- Well, in some ways.
    Thanks, sweetie.

    Rebecca- That sounds dreadful!

    Lulumarie- So far, so good. Thanks, lovey.

    Syd- Sometimes we ARE randy in public. Sort of. You know.

    Ms. Bastard-Beloved- Like I said to Kati, some of those lessons were not gotten without some, uh, difficulty.

    Stephanie- Thanks, sweet woman!

  15. Happy Anniversary, Ms. Moon! May you continue kissing each other until your dying breath.

  16. Congrats, Mr. and Mrs. Moon on 27 years. Impressive. :)

  17. I like the "lolly-poop" plan. Motivation is good.

    Happy Anniversary, belatedly. Marriage takes motivation, too.


Tell me, sweeties. Tell me what you think.
