the difference between complete and finished
« on: January 03, 2014, 08:07:27 am »
Ole Minniemo believes there is a difference between "complete" and "finished". Let me explain the difference in a way that is easy to understand." When you marry the right woman, you are "complete". If you marry the wrong woman, you are "finished". And, when the right one catches you with the wrong one, you are "completely finished".

LOL...    I FELT at the time I had married the right woman...   26 years ago I felt complete!!!   Today...  Alll I have to do is slow down, or take a break in WHATEVER job I happen to be doing..  I get threatened with severe physical harm by a single LOOK, and am told in no uncertain terms...
   "Your NOT finished!"
   The look SOMEHOW transfers complete knowledge of the fact that I best not stop again until I am Completely Finished.. if I do, I will BE completely finished!

Is that the voice of experience?  ???
