"ahhhhhh, Communication"

Chris Elwood on how he does, in fact, pay attention.

By Chris Elwood

Is it just me or does everyone seem happier this season? I'm glad that they are showing Jeff's softer side this year. After last season and up until recently so many people would come up to me and ask, "Is Jeff really that crazy?" and I would say, "You betcha! BUT, he is a lot nicer and had done a lot more for Jenni and I and everyone else in his life than they have portrayed ." And that is the truth -- Jeff is a bit nutty but I do believe he genuinely has a great heart.

How to Watch

How 'bout that painting? I wish I could get a poster of that painting. Would you guys like a poster of Zoila's portrait? How much would you pay for it? I told Jeff that we should mass produce that painting and sell them to all of Zoila's fans ('cause believe me there's a bunch). Or a Zoila t-shirt, huh ... huh? Yeah that would be sweet! As far as the painting itself, I thought Samantha (the artist) did a great job. I mean portraits are very difficult and I think the mark of a well-done portrait is when you look at it, you immediately see the person being rendered and I think Samantha definitely accomplished that. Art is sooooooo subjective -- one man's trash is another's treasure. BEHOLDER people BEHOLDER!!! Anyway I do think Jeff's heart was in the right place again -- the bottom line is he helped facilitate the immortalization of a truly great woman. FYI: It did help keep the coyotes away for a couple weeks.

I'm glad that Ryan and Jenni were able to each bless V.O. 2 in their own way.

So now about me, when Jeff said that I don't listen or pay attention: The fact is that Jeff and I had discussed what the plan was for the day. He wanted me to be at the house for the pet grooming and for Chris 2 to do the running around on the errands. Jeff had given me a bank deposit that he said needed to be deposited first thing so I went downstairs and talked to Chris 2 about what we were doing for the day and that I was going to the bank and would be back in ten minutes. Jeff did not say "Stay at the house no matter what." He said for me to decide what needed to be done between Chris 2 and I and make it happen and that's what I did. Sooooooooo, do you guys feel like we are trying to subliminally make you guys and gals watch old episodes of Who's the Boss?

Exhibit A: Jenni's blog title last week

Exhibit B: my blog title last week

Exhibit C: Chris 2 say "Who's the boss?" a few times in Episode Two.

Exhibit D: Dr. TONY (Danza) last season

Exhibit E: Zoila is such an angel (Angela). OK -- so maybe E was a reach.

Do you see any other examples? Thanks again for watching.
