    Default Need Help From Orchid Wives Question

    Well Baseball & Softball are Over We attended 62 Baseball Double headers and 49 Softball Games, My orchid house is a mess Blooms all over the place Ill Post Pic Later but I have an important Question. I think its might be a signal form my wife.

    The Statement made after we were done with ncaa playoff games, when a parent asked well what will Bob do now with his spare time? The wifes answer "Probably buy more orchids"

    My question do you think thats a green light statement or a trick statement

    Sounds like a trick to me... lol, be careful. Perhaps buying the wife a new pair of shoes or a nice piece of jewelry would clear the way. hehehe...

    Good luck my friend!

    Cheers,

    I agree with BD on tricky part. You can take it as green light buying more orchids, and get her a spa package or a dozen roses as a thank you for her understanding and support... maybe you should show the gesture first, making her happy before buying orchids. After all, you both have done a wonderful job raising those awesome kids!

    I'm kinda thinking it might have been a scarcastic remark I really did'nt hear any sweetness in her voice. I'll try this weekend we'll be in Monroe Mi and there just happen to be as great grower theregive it a test like as long as we are in the neighborhood let's stop by and see what he has.

    Well here is my 2 cents . I don't think it was a sarcastic remark or a green light sounds like just a comment and prob the truth
    But I would take it as a green light Gin

    I think the same way! Comment or statement- "That is what it is!" That is why I said I would take it as a green light! She already knows it's comming!
