    OK, so I'm trying to watch the Tim Conway/Johnny Carson link posted in another thread. Here's the new law I just made up.

    Law of talking...you can sit in the living room, all by yourself, all quiet, until you either try to talk on the phone or watch something on tv or the internet...then your husband will come upstairs and want to talk... :(

    Here's one I've made up...

    My husband doesn't do much talking when he's home but when he calls me everyday at lunch, he turns into "Chatty Cathy". Maybe I should just call him on my cell phone from my sewing room and chat with him when he's on his computer. haha
