Real Men...

 "You might be a redneck if..."  your husband's best buddy gets this done to his Suburban.  He lives in a house full of girls, so he gets a little credit.  Add the fact that he's from Arkansas and he just can't help himself.  No offense to Arkansas.  In fact it's a compliment.  My husband has spent many cold winters on the fields of Arkansas, also known as the duck capital of the world.

So when this Man's Man showed up in our driveway to show off his vehicle's new duds my husband was oohing and aahing over it like I do over a newborn babe.  In case you were wondering, the paint job is considered "old school camouflage."  Doncha feel so smart now?

Even though this vehicle can hide in plain sight on the plains of Arkansas or the marshes of NC, it's a little bit noticeable around town.  Every once in awhile we'll see it while we're out and about.  The kids always giggle because they think he's a pretty neat guy.  I think he's a little crazy and brave ... just like my man.  :)



A few Sundays ago we were heading to our car after church when we walked past the "Duck Machine" and I noticed something that didn't quite fit the image this beast usually portrays.
I laughed until I cried.
Yep.  He's a Man's Man who happens to be the owner of a Bichon Frise.  Hey, with 3 women in the house, you can't win them all, right?

OH, Gretchen, that is FUNNY. So funny.

Wonder what would happen if you commanded a Bichon to retrieve a duck? :)

I think I may know this guy..

Let's see..all girls, from Arkansas, has a bichon frise...

I wonder if his wife might be teaching my oldest an Honors English class this year.

I had NO idea this was his ride.

(just showed the photo to my hubby..he immediately said, "hey that's J***'s truck.") :D

Hilarious!

At most you might expect, "I love my golden retriever" or "I love my black lab", Bison Frise is a total departure from the huntsman profile! Love it!

I'm not sure I'll be ever able to listen to the owner of this truck teach again without laughing. Love that family!

Makes me giggle each time I see it. And, for the record, Robbie says it's a giraffe and Jocelyn says it's a cheetah. They don't understand old school camo. :)

(By the way, can I just say I'm giddy to move your blog from my "favorites" - which is my I-like-it-but-I-don't-know-the-writer-in-offline-life category - to "friends" column on my poor neglected Dinglefest blog. Made me smile this morning, even before I finished a cup of coffee!)

As the wife of this guy, I have to tell you that I was surprised just like everyone else when he got the paint job. Wonder why he didn't mention it beforehand? If this is his midlife crisis, we're doing pretty well.
