I love Joe!

This is Joe.

Isn't Joe handsome??

I have loved Joe since the day I was born. He protected me from the big bad things in the world and was my super hero. He has bailed me out of jail, he chased off a bad boy or two.. maybe three, he loved me even when he couldn't like me very much, he taught me to ride a bike, throw a base ball like a boy, start a go cart (granted he broke my nose while trying to do so), he taught me how to be me and not what everyone (erhmm my mother) wanted me to be. I could keep up with this list forever but I won't bore you.

Joe bought me this today. I see many many grilled things in my future. Thanks Joe!!!

Joe hasn't always been Joe to me, for the first 33 years of my life he was just Daddy.


  1. Joe is very handsome! And Joe can spot a most excellent grill! Three burners? COOL! We could have beans with our wienies :)! I wish we lived close, too. But, then again, if we did....(would Joe bail two out of jail? HA!). Does Waterman like to be grill chef, or is it you?

  2. Oh for pete's sake! Joe...Henry...Michael...Donald...
    Is Ann Marie really YOUR name? HAHAHA! Between you and Monkling, I'm starting to feel schizophrenic. Whoever and however, it's still a really cool grill!

  3. I think this means we're moving the barbecue over to Ann Marie's tomorrow night.

  4. I guess I could do that, but I really would rather Ann Marie bring the grill to my place. I will provide wienies AND beans. Come on, I have a really cool new deck, and Ann Marie has the really cool new grill...are ya both in?

  5. I want a deck. We're supposed to be living in a house on 3/4 of an acre with a wrap around porch & a swing and a deck. Except there was 1 little problem - we picked the worst possible time to try to sell our house & we couldn't buy that house unless we sold ours. One day... Meantime I guess I'll just have to sit on other people's decks.

  6. Hmm...I can't see the picture of what he bought you but I am guessing by the other comments it was a lovely grill! I just love barbeque season!! Lovely tribute to your dad!

  7. Alright, Ann Marie...STEP AWAY FROM THE GRILL...HAHAHA! It's Friday night...Where are you and Monkling? I've got the beans and weinies all ready...

    I miss ya, girl!
