April 12th, 2007
I don’t like to write about my family publicly, or even say/write their names… but today is an exception (sort of). Today I want to give props to my wonderful husband (T-man). Not only does he do so much for me and our family, he’s out there volunteering and helping others as well. Because I am so [expletive]ing proud of him and in light of April 15th kicking off National Volunteer Week… I’m bending my rules and posting about T-man for receiving the Clatsop County 2006 Outstanding Volunteer Award.
Not only does T-man put in many hours on the job, my endless honey-do lists and happily volunteering where I volunteer (my quilt guild) and still have much time for family time… but somehow he finds and makes the time to volunteer with the Clatsop County Sheriff’s Department Underwater Recovery Team. Being a diver is not always exciting or full of adventure. Most of the time it’s a recovery mission of the most tragic of circumstances. I know it’s something I couldn’t do, and all the more why I’m so proud my T-man does this and does it with such compassion and caring. Photo: left to right… T-man, K9-man (K9-man nominated T-man for the award). Thank you to Clatsop County’s Volunteer Coordinator Brandi Helligso and the Clatsop County Board of Commissioners for the nice reception and ceremony!
And speaking of Clatsop County (jeeze, have I mentioned that enough yet? Or as I like to call it… Catsup County), anyhoo… FINALLY something smokin’ hot and cool spent with our tax dollars! Yes, this is my Maggie’s new big sister… K9-man’s new car. Is it wrong to love a car? Because I really love my Magnum. All the more why I’m so excited over K9-man’s new car. Of course Big Sis is packed with WAY more goodies then my Maggie (and makes Maggie look like a go-cart), and not to mention can run faster and is armed and can make someone pee their pants when they see her in the rear-view mirror! Paying property tax is no fun, but I like to think this is where my entire check went to - if only that came with driving rights!!! A favor to anyone driving around Catsup County… if you see K9-man and you’re both stopped at a light…. PLEASE - slide your sunglasses to the tip of your nose, slowly tilt your head down and look above your glasses and say, “Nice car… but Monica’s is nicer”.
And if K9-man’s car is not cool enough… here’s another baby in the county. Look at this smokin’ hot Charger (and hopefully not in your rear-view mirror)!
