Squinty Eyes? Check. Big Smile? Check. Ed, Happy? Check.

Even though we have our moments like any couple, and more specifically, a couple who lives in such a small space 24/7/365 with their significant other, you'd almost never know it if you were to be in the company of Ed.

He's always freakin' happy. Smiling happy. Twinkly eyes happy. And not the kind of happy you want to smack, but the kind of happy you want to smile back at. He diffuses so many situations by chuckling, or laughing in a way that makes his eyes get all crinkly and small. This picture perfectly illustrates what I mean.

So yesterday, happy Ed and I spent the day returning some equipment he bought for the truck (straps which had hooks that didn't fit through our rub rails), having our truck and trailer inspected (we passed with flying colors), and getting our clutch adjusted (now we buck like a bronco when the clutch is released).

I wanted to get a mani/pedi and a haircut, but the parking lot we pulled into to do that, kicked us out. By that time, in the blistering heat, I wasn't too inspired to go anywhere else. So we went back to the truck, hung out for a while, made dinner, watched some TV and surfed the net. Tomorrow we go back to work.

Which of course, makes Ed happy.

I have to admit, it does make life a bit easier to be work and live with someone who refuses to succumb to the sucky in life - especially with squinty-eyes smiles.

I noticed this is the second time in a week that Salena has mentioned getting a mani/pedi, so if that doesn't happen soon, I will be the only in the truck with a smile on my face.

I just want to know what magazine you were reading that put such a big smile on your face?

The cover almost looked like Shades of Grey?

Ed said...

As far as books go, I like non fiction about people like James Mason, Robert C. Byrd, I don't read many books these days and this is the first I have ever heard of Shades of Grey. I did a search for it after reading this comment and all I found was "Fifty Shades of Grey". Is that what you meant? That is something that I would not read. Maybe I don't keep up with the Jones'es when it comes to the latest books out. I do read magazines about current events, photography, Popular Science, Popular Mechanics, etc. etc. I also read books about investing, retirement planning, healthcare and the like. The magazine I was reading in the picture was Runners World Magazine. You can sort of make out the woman standing in the foreground and the word Runner behind her head. As far as the smile on my face, that was because of my beautiful Salena. She does that to me sometimes.
