My hero

November 15th, 2007

I practically blog about everything, but I always like to keep it private when it comes to things about about my DH and my boys. But I’m breaking my own rule (again) because I’m so stinkin’ proud of my DH.  The T-man was named Coast Guardsman of the Year for Astoria (OR) from the American Legion in Ilwaco, WA! You can read the nice article friend Connie told me about by the Pacific County (WA) sheriff here. And if that’s not enough… the T-man was asked this morning to be the Grand Marshall of the Seaside Holiday Parade! I suppose I’ll be sewing my super hero a cape and crafting him an extra large crown with built in neck brace soon… but he’s so worth it.

But the T-man can’t have all the fun… I’ve asked him to refer to me as Mrs. Grand Marshall from now through December.

    congratulations to your hubby and the woman behind the great man!

    beware of cape making.. speaking from experience here.. I made one for a family member and to say he was UNIMPRESSED is an understatement.. but then again, he is a CAT and cats aren’t impressed by much at all.. excitable, yes, impressed? no.. LOL to say he was UNHAPPY about the super cat cape (complete with hood balaklava type headgear) is an understatement… so unimpressed I have been unable to find cape ensemble since…


  31. The fabulous Nan allegedly said:

    Huzzah to the Mr. and Mrs. Grand Marshall! How exciting for both of you! Thanks for sharing with us! What color cape are you creating? Aqua, right?

Monica you might remember her as the one who drove the “Volvo.” Have a Great Turkey Day. Can’t wait to see the photos from the Holiday Parade in Seaside.

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
