Asking and Receiving.

If it's your day as the father, you get what you want.

You ask for a BLT? 
YOU get a BLT. Heavy on the T.
{Sandwich made by LoLo.}
And yes, she did eventually slice the T,  and add more B and L.

You ask for a 1947 kinda weird looking Ford Truck. 
And you get a 1947 kinda weird looking Ford toy truck. 

You need the bed of your pick-up truck cleaned out? 
{Softball coaches are known for toting around orange clay}
You get your pick up truck bed cleaned out by three able bodies. Well, two of the bodies are more able than the third. 
The third able body is very good at giving directions.

Hey, if you're good at something, flaunt it.
*Me, Flaunting*

There was also a flurry of garage cleaning with some throwing out of crap and organizing of other crap. 
All in all, it was a good day for the Coach.


My Dad was not big on holidays. BUT, he always had a saying:
Mother's day comes 9 months after Father's day.
Or was it
Father's day comes 9 months after Mother's day?

Ether way, it was so darn corny.
I know where I get it from. 



  1. I think I'm going to have to make one of those BLT's for the girls one day - just to see their faces. ;-)

  2. You all are so nice to Coach. My Dad always says "Somebody has got to do the heavy lookin-on" whenever he was giving us work to do. Seems like you two have a lot in common!

  3. LOVE the sandwich! Your kids are a hoot!! I wonder where they get it....

  4. I've read the whole page, I was obviously way behind in reading your blog. You are so creative and funny I just love your posts! So down to earth. Your family is so darling!

  5. Looks like Coach did have a great Father's Day.... That was neat that he did get his truck cleaned!!!!! And I do love the BLT--complete with whole mater!!!!! ha ha

    Yes---sounds like you not only have your grandmother's humor, but you also have your Dad's....... Love people with great personalities!!!

  6. You all showered the Coach with great gifts! Loved the pictures!

  7. Vol Fan has a truck bed that ALWAYS needs cleaned out if you guys get bored this summer! :)

  8. Lol, I love the BLT. :) Looks like a good day for all!

  9. Wait, it was Father's Day? I'm a Father! My kids are gonna have a good talkin' to tonight. Right after I go out and buy a pick-up truck for them to clean.

  10. Hey Mark... don't buy one. You can rent one for them to clean much cheaper!

  11. Judging from your dads saying I think he got a wee bit more than breakfast in bed......

    We took The Dad to a vintage car show and now he wants one too! He's not getting one but he did get breakfast and then had to mow the lawn himself because our two able bodies said they had to study for exams.

  12. OMG. Funniest sammie ever. Go LoLo.
    And the saying from your dad. I was like Nuh-Uh. They are only about a month apart. Silly Suz's dad, not being able to count.
    And then I got it.

    Dumb me.


    Glad Coach had a great day!

  13. It looks as if Coach had himself a DAY! Hooray for him. And I love your dad's saying - that's one I've not heard yet. Thanks for making me laugh!

  14. I love it that the girls have your sense of humor!

  15. HAHA! betcha grew that tomater TOO!

  16. lol, i love that sandwich! now i want one ; )

    Thank you so much Miss Suz! You know what for; you are a very sweet person. May all the good mojo fall around you and your family : D

  17. Your dad was a kook because that makes no sense, which is exactly what makes it fabulous.

    Coach is a lucky daddy!

  18. that blt made me laugh/wheeze! glad you gave coach a nice day... or at least supervised the making of his nice day!

  19. I saw that tomato and thought: Oh no she didn't! Glad it got sliced!

  20. Looks like a pretty great sunny Father's Day!!

  21. That BLT sounds like something my daughter would do. But I'm glad Coach had a very happy Father's Day.

  22. I'm laughing so hard over the BLT!

    That is definitely heavy on the T!

    I like it better heavy on the B minus the L and T.

  23. Ohhhh! My kids who does stuff like that lives in New Zealand :( But I will be visiting her soon :)

  24. Totally stealing the BLT idea. Hilarious!

  25. Sounds like a great Father's Day!
