The Good Guys

This weekend I did a lot of thinking about the “good guys.”
The good guys are easy to spot in the movies and TV. They’re the ones that wear white hats and save the day at the last possible moment. Men like NCIS Special Agent Leroy Jethro Gibbs, Superman, and The Lone Ranger.

In the real world, however, the good guys aren’t so easy to spot. They don’t wear white Stetson’s, don’t have a cape and fly or strap six guns on their hips. So how do you recognize them? Easy.
                            The good guys are men who:
   *Jump out of bed at 1:00 in the morning without complaining to change a flat tire. 
   *Kill spiders in the shower no matter how small or how big.
   *Take their wives shopping all day then carry the grocery bags in the house.
   *Respect women.
   *Cherish their wives, kids, and relatives.  
   *Hold hands with their sufficient others.
   *Mow the grass.
   *Hold doors open.
   *Take the car for an oil change.
   *Place family above work.
Good guys come in a variety of shapes and sizes and have ordinary names such as: Jim, Greg, Dan, Ned, Kevin, Brian, and Neal.
And while it may be true that “good guys” finish last, they are number one in the hearts of the women they protect, support, and cherish.


  1. Now what in the world made you think of that? If only they still wore white hats, things would be so much easier. :) (This is Jan, but for some reason it won't let me leave a comment as anyone but Anonymous. Wonder if someone is trying to tell me something.)

  2. There are a lot of good gals out there too, who work their tails off to make life better for the rest of us. They move around quietly in the background, never seeking credit or praise. I haven't met one yet who was built like Wonder Woman, but you can recognize them by the size of their heart and the loving support they offer to those who need someone to believe in them.

  3. Except in my house the good guy better only do discretionary spider killing ;)
