Dad's first post.

Joan has been on me to put something on here for a while, so I have been waiting for a real gem,,,,, I got it last night. Yesterday was a pretty normal Sunday, got up, had breakfast, did a bunch of yard work and went with Mitch to pick up some more junk for the allready overstuffed garage. After everything was settled down for the night I decided that the Lightning deserved a bath. I gotta add a quick side note, mama didn't feel very good,,,,, you know,,,,, her special time? So I grab a bunch of quarters out of the jar and headed for my favorite car wash. About the time I'm giving hugs and kisses, Joni says "Could you stop at Walgreens for me?" I said "sure what do you need?" She replied with the second worst thing I wanted to hear,,,,,,, Midol. I figure I can handle that so I take off. I got the truck to the car wash, got the windows cleaned and headed for Walgreens. This whole time I'm thinking about where the Midol might be located in the store. I figured since it is a feminan deal that it would be located in that dreaded isle where guys are forbidden, or at least avoid like the plauge, to go. So here I am, looking up and down that special isle for said Midol. I quickly determine it's not there. Mabye it's just me, but it felt like I was in enemy territory, at least that's what the stares from the other women in that isle were making me feel like. So, if it's not in woman row, it must be in the pain relief isle. I head that way and look everything over. Once again, I can't find the damn Midol. About this time, I realize that there is no line at the pharmacy, so I bite the bullet and go for help. The young lady working comes over ands asks what she can do for me, I say "I can't believe I'm about to ask this, but where is the Midol?" ,,,,,Drum Roll,,,,She doesn't know, so she yells at the others working in the pharmacy, "WHERES THE MIDOL?" They don't remember. This whole time, a woman is behind me and is listening to the whole deal, she leans towards me and says, "painkiller isle, bottom left." So I'm on my way, I've got the Midol discreetly hidden in my palm and I make it to the checkout which is a mad house. As I'm standing in line, I spot the Ghirardelli special chocalate peppermint seasonal bar and figure I better get one of those as well. I make it to the cashier and lay my two items on the counter, she looks at them as she rings them in and then looks at me with a what the hell look,,,,,,, All I could say was, "Mama's having a rough night." She smiled and quickly and discreetly put the Midol and choclate in a sack. It just goes to show what a guy will do for his wife. After all, I probably owe her a couple after having to tend to me.

Happy Halloween!

Matt and I have been trying to get Harper to be a bush for the last couple of years. But she would never agree - that is until this year. But I had to make it a little more fun to get her to agree.... So we decided she would be a tree with a birds nest!
