    DH was going to be going to a feed store for seed for the parrots. I let him know that we were low on food for the Delightful Dozen. I am sure I said grower, non medicated. I told him he should be able to get a smaller (less than 50lb bag) quantity that will tide us over until we need layer.

    Today, upon arriving home, he proudly tells me that he got scratch for the girls. . . . . Scratch? I know I never said that. He then asked, was I supposed to get the pellets? They said they had that too. <sigh>

    Who knows, DH might have brought home almost anything, but he did remember I said we did not need layer. He just didn't remember any other details.

    I reassured him that we could use the scratch occasionally for treats, but that we would need to try again for some GROWER!

    Come ON Eggs! LOL

    We are trying to get ready for Hurricane Gustuv and so I wrote down a list of house hold items.

    At one point this morning, I asked him to get me some hair spray. After writing down the color of the can, the color of the words on the can and what the can said verbadom, I decided to scratch it off the list after he asked me what the can looked like!

    I had a "Wife Gut Feeling" he would still bring home the wrong can of stuff.

    Bless his heart though... He did purchase the correct colored knee high stockings and the correct liquid clothes soap! Of course, detailed box/bottle color and highlighted names were on the list!

    I dunno, he may have gotten the correct hair spray...[​IMG]

    After you start feeding the layer feed, save the empty feed bag. Hand him the empty to take with him. It should help.... [​IMG]

    [​IMG] We call that "The Husband Trick" at work - when someone does a diliberate BAD job at something so they don't get assigned to it again.

    Please, these men are smart and perfectly capable of choosing the correct beer type.
    Plus, who does not own a cell phone?

    I keep threatening to make a picture book for DH to take to the store. Polaroids of every item we need so he gets the right things.
