Big Daddy

Wednesday, December 1, 2010
As the ticker on the right side tells me---TODAY, Big Daddy and I have been married 17 years 3 weeks and 1 day.  The man is a saint.  He has always been a saint, I suspect, it just took me a while to catch on.....he does things for me that no man, I'm convinced, every would.  He built a doghouse for a 150 lb. dog that he didn't really like and then built a little bench to put the dogs bowl on so he didn't have to bend over to eat (you all have those, right?)   I guess I mentioned we had a 150 lb dog (actually, we've had 2 of them)! Big Daddy isn't REALLY a dog person and now when I ask politely (beg) to bring home another dog he says,"I'd rather you didn't".   He knows me, after all!  He appreciates my need to nap and my obsession with all things BOOK.
This time of year, I am especially grateful for Big Daddy.  He puts the top on my Christmas tree.  Did I mention, when we built our house he put an electrical plug in the dormer because he knew I would put a Christmas tree there?

He rarely walks past me without giving me a little kiss or at least acknowledging me!  He holds my hand in the car and keeps the fire going so I don't freeze!  Plus, he shares his bed with two chihuahuas!

Most recently, Big Daddy moved to my side of the state to be closer to "my people".  He left the house he built and the safe in the basement and his building with all of his treasures!  For that, I will be eternally grateful.  Gotta go....I need to text Big Daddy and tell him I love him!
