Let's get this out of the way. My wife will be having foot and mouth surgery this week. No connection--strictly a coincidence. The tooth extraction comes on Wednesday followed by toe fusion on Friday. As a result I'll be being helpful, taking over household chores that I wouldn't normally meddle with. We're not entirely sure to what extent and for how long my wife will be immobilized, but the new regime in place will slow my blogging down to some degree.
Get well soon Mrs Wauck!ReplyDelete
A happy wife is a happy home! ��ReplyDelete
I do what I can.Delete
Bless the Silver Fox and her tolerance for us eating up your time daily! Family first and we all wish her a speedy recovery.ReplyDelete
Good for you! Our best to you both. As for you, Mark, you deserve some time off...ReplyDelete
Actually I've begun the process over the last several weeks by learning to cook. Well ...Delete
My wife is a very fine cook who likes to cook, so it's a bit pointless for me except as a kitchen helper. I follow directions and do a lot of the cutting and chopping and so forth. I like using knives.
Up till now, my cooking has been pretty much confined to preparing 1) pour-over coffee, and 2) strong drinking chocolate.Delete
Not saying my wife doesn't know how to cook, but she once asked me how make a baked sweet potato.Delete
Her never married brother is worse. I once prepares. Thanksgiving dinner that included carrots. He asked me how to cook carrots. Even worse, he askede to write down the recipe.
I'm not kidding
Um, that sounds a bit like me. I'm getting pretty good with salmon and scrambled eggs (no, not together) but I follow my wife's script.Delete
My wife has banished me from the kitchen. The deal is that I clean up.Delete
Yes, we have a division of duties.Delete
We'll pray for her quick and complete recovery. Then she gets to do AGAIN the jobs you did.....more or less.ReplyDelete
She had a knee replacement a few years ago. The toe thing won't be anything like that, but feet can be tricky because of all the small bones. Some years ago I had a problem with recurring stress fractures in a foot, and those take a long time to recover. Thank God, no problems since.Delete
Best wishes to the wife and to your expected new "Honey do" lists. LOL. Maybe you can have a a "guest" blogger although pretty much most of the comments from some appear to be the "guest" blogs. Get some rest yourself Mark. Best in recovery.ReplyDelete
Good luck with everything and wishes for a speedy recovery for your wife!ReplyDelete
Necessity is the mother of invention- when you get hungry, you'll learn how to cook!
I've been practicing following instructions and I'm getting pretty good at it. Pork Diablo tonight.ReplyDelete
What in tarnation is Pork Diablo? Sounds exotic and not like you.Delete
We do a lot of pork tenderloin recipes:Delete
The sauce is made with half and half, dijon mustard, horseradish, red pepper.

Ha! That kind of line would have scored me a slap on the shoulder from my wife ;-D
Here's hoping for you wife's quick recovery. Good luck in the kitchen.ReplyDelete
Tonight we chopped up everything to make Jambalaya tomorrow. Hopefully I'll have lots of leftovers to warm up for several days.Delete
Always interested in things medical, I must ask “what is toe fusion?”ReplyDelete
This site will explain it:Delete
Her big toe is severely deformed.
She's doing this to regain mobility. It's become that bad.Delete
Here's to a speedy recovery!ReplyDelete
We wish her a fast recovery.ReplyDelete
Thanks to everyone for the well wishes. For most of our lives we've done a lot of walking and this foot problem has got the point now where that's become almost impossible.ReplyDelete
Mark, I will definitely miss seeing the "normal" number of posts from you and thanks for what you are able to post. I wish for (and pray for) a speedy and complete recovery for your wife.ReplyDelete
P.S. - Try some Johnsonville Andouille sausage with that Jambalaya - it works quite well and for significantly less $$ than the imported LA stuff.
We'll have to keep that in mind. It's some stuff she picked up at Whole Foods. Good sausage isn't so easy to find.Delete
Indeed, thanks to all for the good wishes. I sincerely appreciate it. SOS (spouse of Silver Fox) will do just fine in his new role.ReplyDelete
I truly enjoy the cameraderie on this blog. It’s like sitting down with old friends for a really good chinwag.
Again thanks for the well wishes and God bless you all!
Here's wishing you a speedy recovery, Mrs. Wauck!Delete
Praying for the Mrs.' quick recovery. We just got through both cataracts and gum surgery, not to mention the hernias and lady cancer. We're on a roll now with everything mostly in the past. You'll get through this too. It will bring you closer together and Mark, you'll learn good stuff.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Dave--you're absolutely right. It's happening already.Delete
Just saw this today (Thursday). Prayers for your wife's procedures to go well and that she have a quick and complete recovery!ReplyDelete
Thanks. We're getting ready for tomorrow.Delete
