Everything else is here:

Sweet, sweet music...

“Ya ready fer lights out, Hank…?”

“Sure… But I meant ta ask ya…”

“Ask me wha’…?”

“Bill was ribbin’ me ‘bout hows he could hear me snorin’ all the way from the kitchen this mornin’ when he stopped in fer a cup a coffee before startin’ work… Said he thought we musta been remodelin’ ‘n moved a big ol’ buzz saw inta the house… ‘N ‘m wonderin’ if’n maybe I shouldn' try 'n do somethin’ ‘bout it…?"

“Hardly seems like a firin’ offense… Maybe you ‘n Bill could jus’ fight it out behind the barn or somethin’… restore yer sullied honor tha' way…”

“Ya know damn well I meant do somethin’ ‘bout my snorin’, dumbass…"

"Guess you could try 'n get up 'fore Bill gets here so's ya don't bother him none..."

"C'mon, Ed... Be serious fer a minute... Am I as bad as Bill says…?”

“Guess ya snore some...”

Real loud?”

“Usually ain’t tha’ bad. Don’ think ya need ta do nothin’ ‘bout it anyways.”

“Hate ta think I been keepin’ ya up fer years ‘n ya ain’t never said nothin’ ‘bout it… Tha'd be jus' like you...”

“Don’ bother me none.”

“Ya hear so’s much ‘bout tha’ sleep apnea… Maybe I got tha’…?”

“Don’ think ya got nothin’ like tha’…”

“Maybe I better try ‘n do somethin’ ‘bout it anyways… Try some a them nose strips ta start least-wise…”

“Hank… truth is… I… uh… I ain’t never said nothin’ 'bout it ‘cause… ‘cause I kinda like yer snorin’...”

“Why the hell wouldya like my snorin’…?”

“I dunno… ‘s jus’ tha’… sometimes it does wake me up in the middle a the nigh’... but alls I gotta do is nudge ya a l’il ‘n ya turn so’s yer on yer side... ‘n then sometimes I fall righ’ back ta sleep ‘n sometimes I don’t... so's sometimes I just lie awake holdin' ya… feelin' yer heart beatin’ ‘neath m’ hand… ‘n listenin' to ya breathin’... or listenin' to ya snorin'... if'n ya start up again... ‘n I… I think ‘bout how damn lucky I am… lucky ta be lyin’ in this here bed with ya… lyin’ in our bed… ‘n I think ‘bout all them years we got ta spend ta gether… ‘n all the years I hope we still got in fron’ a us…”

“Jeez, Ed…”

“‘N then sometimes… sometimes I cain’t help movin' m’ hand over ya… ‘n sometimes ya don’ wake up… but sometimes ya do… ‘n then ya migh' let out one a them moans a yers… ‘n maybe turn back towards me some… or maybe reach back fer me… ‘n if’n ya do… if’n ya do then ‘m done fer… ‘n then… well… you sure as hell know what happens then…”

“Think I migh’ got some idea…”

“Ya think so, huh…?”

“Yep… S’ kinda like wha’s ‘bout ta happen righ’ now… C’mere, Ed…”

"Wha'...? Withou' no music...? That ain't like ya, Hank..."

"Ya wan' music...? I'll get ya music... Hold on a second... One song does come ta mind... Think Iris mighta sent us a 'best of' cd years ago... Here it is..."


"Said I kinda like yer snorin'... But I wouldn' 'xactly call it a 'symphony', dumbass..."

"Yeah... But all tha' stuff ya said a minute a go... tha' was music ta my ears, Ed... Now... How 'bout we see if'n we can make 'a thousand violins fill the air'... Hell... maybe even a thousand 'n one..."

"Ta tell ya the truth... I prefer fiddles..."

"I'll be more than happy ta let ya fiddle 'round with any instrument you got in mind..."

"In tha' case... why dontcha bring tha' piccolo a yers back over here...?"

"You mus' be mistakin' me fer someone else... Don' like ta blow m' own horn... purty much a physical impossibility anyways... but I got m'self a big ol' trombone 'n a couple a good-sized maracas..."

"Well... if'n you can manage 'n all... why dontcha drag all that over here 'n we'll see jus' wha' kind a music we can make with it..."

"How 'bout we go with a rhapsody...?"

"A rhapsody...? Wha' the hell's a rhapsody...?"

"Damned if I know... I thought you migh'... 'S in this song... somethin' 'bout a 'rhapsody of love'... So's... how 'bout we jus' make it up as we go along...? Rhapsodize the hell outta each other... so ta speak..."

"Now that sounds like my kinda music... C'mere, Hank..."

Only Ed and Hank could have a sweet, sexy conversation about sleep apnea! I love how Ed suggested that maybe Hank could take Bill out behind the barn.... Too funny! Now this is the kind of lovefest story I want to be reading! Thanks so much for this contribution, Blue.

Thanks! Glad it made you smile. Hank has to confess that he sure wishes he could write beyond the 'C'mere Hank/Ed/dumbass' sometimes... (Ed definitely wouldn't like that though... even if Hank could do it, which he can't...)

LMAO, Jenna!!

This is the first piece I've read of these guys. I need to get cracking and get to it.

Great interlude. Loved it.

Re: Ed and Hank

Yeah, Ed can still manage to surprise Hank every now and again (and render Hank pretty speechless too) Glad you liked it!

Thanks! Hank likes the song too. (Ed not so much. He prefers more twang in his music...)

Family Circus

Remember that comic strip? There was a Sunday strip in which the wife was equating her husband's snorning to buzz saws, bowling alleys and pile drivers. She mentioned her lack of sleep to her mother who said her husband's snoring did the same thing, "But since he's been gone, the silence is deafening."

Next panel: the wife is sleeping like a babe... and hubby's snoring is a big musical note.

Re: Family Circus

"The silence is deafening" sure does say it all... Love the 'snore' as a big musical note too. Hank is awful glad Ed thinks of it that way too.

Hank does remember that comic strip... even though their town is too small to have it's own daily newspaper (they just get a free weekly 'newspaper' with births/deaths/ marriages, high school sports and local events but no real news, and no comics, in the mail) But he remembers that strip from when they used to get the Sunday paper delivered from the bigger city down the road.

What can I say Ed and Hank you are the best love match in the world, and how better to say I love you, Ed sure knows how.
Thank you, my day is complete when I see your entry.

Yeah, Hank knows he's real lucky to have Ed around (and wishes he could put it into words like Ed manages to do sometimes). Thanks, I'm really glad you liked it.

P.S. Ed wants Hank to revise this to say he's real, real, real lucky to have Ed around. (And Hank agrees so he was happy to do it.) Thanks again!

SOOO sweet... not really. This is the cutest thing ever. Cutest than puppy. Hell, cutest than kitten too!
Ed&Hank are the best. I was wondering if you could send me an Hank's autograph. Even with his fictional name is ok :P :P
I swear I would put it upon my wall!

Hank can't take much credit... It's all because of Ed that he has anything to write about at all, so if he can get Ed to sign something, (Ed's always suspicious of signing anything), he'll send Ed's autograph to you. :D

"Dammit, Hank... I ain't cute."

"Yeah, ya are, Ed. Yer cute as hell."

Hey, Ed? Hank's just glad to hear that snorin'(even without the rhapsodizin') cause it means you're THERE. Piccolo and all. ;D

Love you, Dumbass.

That would be a 'trombone', dumbass...

(And yeah, Ed snores too, but if Hank can manage to get to sleep, he can sleep through pretty much anything.)

Glad it made you laugh, dumbass.

Well, maybe Ed should just kiss him every time he snores. Think that might help? C'aint snore and kiss at the same time. Worth a try, hey?

Rhapsodize the hell out of each other--Hee!

I don't know which I liked the best: Ed suggesting Hank and Bill fight it out behind the barn to restore Hank's "sullied honor" or the instrument discussion--particularly the "big ol' trombone and a couple a good-sized maracas" that Ed suggests Hank drag "over here an' we'll see jus' wha kind a music we can make with it."

I loved Ed's explanation of why he likes Hank's snoring--it comes down to knowing that he's there with you, doesn't it.:-)

Re: Rhapsodize the hell out of each other--Hee!

Glad you liked it. Hank definitely preferred Ed's second suggestion to his first, and he certainly enjoyed all the rhapsodizing too, but he has to confess that he liked Ed telling him he liked his snoring most of all. And Hank agrees with you... it does come down to just knowing that he's there with you... And if Ed ever starts waking Hank up with his snoring, Hank will try to remember that.

This is the first I've read of Hank and Ed, even though I have it on my list of stuff to read. Looks very promising:)
