Someone to Admire

My Dad told me to stop blogging about him...

but I won't do it. 

See this man.  This is the funny, thoughtful, super smart, and ridiculously romantic - mom adoring man that I can proudly call my Dad. 

He's a farmer, plumber, electrician, welder, carpenter, engineer, mechanic, tree enthusiast, Garth Brooks wanna be, poet to my Mama, book critic, mainly a Jack of all Trades kind of man.  Most recently he wants to be a butcher.  You didn't mis-read that last sentence.  My husband is drawing up plans for a 2 car garage sized butchering facility on the Fox Farm - oh how the ribeyes get better every year!!  The hats this man wears never cease to end!

That's right sisters - see that twinkle in his eye - that's all me!

I took this picture of him & just had to share!

I love you Dad & you can't make me stop writing about you and your ways!

FYI - a few more Stuisms:

Nipple - layin  (Neopolitan) ice cream - that cracks me up because that's just how he pronounces it, but it's so wrong!

That goes together like socks on a rooster - meaning that doesn't go together at all.

That's how the hog eats the cabbage.

He's about as popular as a turd in the punch bowl.


  1. Precious post. I love my daddy so much, he suffers from severe dementia so you just keep posting about your daddy.

    P.S. I did email you about my pictures.

  2. Your love for your family is so obvious in your blog. Just reading about your family, friends and decorating make you seem so real and good and fun. I guess that's why I love your blog.

    This post today reminds me of my Dad (deceased 10 years ago). So, thanks.

  3. Thanks guys! He's a very special man! I was very blessed to have the family I do :)

  4. I read the Stu-isms to my mom and she laughed and said her favorite has been "He's about as popular as a turd in the punch bowl."


  5. You don't have to be his daughter love him and his uniqueness! He's awesome! My kids love him as much as I do!

  6. Ok... That was suppose to say..."...don't have to be his daugter to love him..." You girls and your mom are so blessed to have him in your corner!


Thank you so much for your kind words & support! I love hearing from you & read each and every comment you leave for me! ~Annie
