FATHER'S DAY

For this Father's Day I am going to show you a man who is a great man and a great father. My Big Burly Guy (BB Guy to those who haven't read about him here before) He has been a father for 27 years and a damned good one at that. He is a great example for his sons on what it is to be a good man and a good father. 
He is a reliable man. An even tempered man. A very smart man (married me didn't he) He worked hard through the years sometimes missing out so that I could be a stay at home Mom and care for our precious boys. 
He is very respectful of people, especially women. He is honest. He is kind. His sense of humour is quick and sharp. 
He loves his boys with all his heart and they mean more to him than anything in the whole world.
Happy Father's Day to my B B Guy. I love you.

  1. Yep, he looks awesome alright! And just look at the SIZE of those fish - - - Fisherhubby would be soooo jealous if her were here to SEE that picture instead of off in Canada fishing for himself!

  16. Oh Lori- this is just a tremendous way to honor your man! I'd say both of you are lucky to have each other. And yeah, he'd have to be smart to marry YOU!! And NO, I did not instigate the fiasco at our wedding reception table. LOL
