The Men in My Life...
#Monday Listicles

This week’s Monday Listicles topic was chosen by Kim Pugliano from “The G is Silent”. Kim and her family had an extra special Father’s Day this year with the addition of “The Newest Silent G” and because of that, she asked everyone to celebrate their father, step-father, brother, significant other or any important man in their life. 

Decisions, decisions. So instead I decided to celebrate not one but five men in my life.



My Dad:

  •  He was a man of few words. We still talk about the time he was asked at a family dinner “What kind of cake is that?” to which he answered “Good cake!”  LOL!

  •            I have been told I am my father’s daughter…best compliment EVER!


    
        G:
  •  Father to three handsome (in my eyes), caring young men who obviously took after their mothers.  ;P 

  • We have been married for 21 years. He is retired. So am I (kinda).
    I'll stop there.
J1:
  • Aspiring musician. We are hoping he makes it big so he can support his aging parents. I think I'll go along for that ride too! Tee hee.

  • Upon first meeting J1, I became suspicious that "human cloning" might possibly be happening.


    
        J2:
  •  Ahhh the miracle of childbirth...my first born. If he we make it through the teen years, it would indeed be a miracle.

  • Further evidence that "human cloning" had begun.


Riley:

  • Main character in "Our Adventures with Riley". His unique ways of looking at the world was the inspiration for this blog.

  • "Human cloning" stopped here.




Congratulations to you and your family Kim!!!

    1. Thanks Rhonda!

      Short and sweet this week. I'm not so much sentimental as I am sarcastic. HA! Like you, I use humour as a coping mechanism. =D

      Have a great week!

  2. Oh! You do have some wonderful men in your life! Your father sounds just lovely. Nothing like a sense of humor! And I'm also waiting on one or both of my sons to "make it big" so I can live in the manner to which I would like to become accustomed. hehe

    1. I don't have any brothers so living in a houseful of males is a real eye-opener. Thankfully 5 divides into 10 quite nicely too. Tee hee.

    1. Thanks Stasha!

      Thankfully the boys have not caused us too much "excitement" in the negative sense. It is more the "tone" (aka attitude) that can extremely trying! Doesn't help that I'm menopausal and both G & I are just getting old and cranky. LOL!!!

      I'm sure it will NEVER happen to Little J. ;P

  7. Great pics of your men! You've made me wonder what my boys will be like when they grow up. They're only 6 and 8 now. I'm dreading that teen attitude phase!

    1. SO NOT FAIR!!! All the boys have the "mannerisms" of their dad which make people "think" they look like him. How can they all look like them him when two of them are half-Japanese??? That's what I wanna know!!! :D
