You are my sunshine

I make no bones about it.

My husband absolutely drives me batty half the time.

...but when it comes to being sentimental about things he does have a soft spot.

It amazes me at what he finds to be sentimental.

One day in Michigan we went to a gas station.  He filled the car and I went inside.

The cashier gave me the Sunoco Sun.

I put it on the rear view mirror of Tom's car.

I did it just for fun because neither one of us actually hangs things from our rear view mirrors. 

But I did something as I was placing the sun there. 

I sang.

I sang "You are my sunshine."

He never took it down.

Last year when Tom was cleaning out his car because he was getting a new car, I told him that he should just toss the ol' sun because he was so faded.

You would have thought I told him to toss out the car!

He said no way because he thinks of me every time he sees it.

Who knew?!!

Have a great day!

*I have a feeling I told this story before, but it's worth repeating.

I don't remember it either - - - so chances are if neither Miss Dust nor me, two of your REGULARS remember it, you never told it.

I LOVE this story - - - not only for the fact that Hubby is sentimental, but also for the fact that he is sentimental about YOU!!!!

Tom is very sweet. And you must have a lovely voice, too.

Now that is very sweet! That is a love story.

That is very sweet!! I sing that song to my kids and my son has been requesting it at bedtime. Maybe I need to get him a sun to hang from the ceiling...
