Happy Pappy Day, 06
Well this was fun. I got my package out to my pops in time for FedEx on Friday (the folks currently live in Hawaii), but I just found out this a.m. that they are buying (yet another) house in NorCal. He says "this is the last one", but I've heard that before.
Anyhoo, the package had some loverly shots of the Wee MonkeyGurl, plus a knitted item for Pops. Faith asked me at SnB last week *why* I was knitting this for my dad for Fathers' Day. My response? "Because its funny."
See, as a career Marine, Pops never did have much hair, but as he gets older, I can tell that the buzzcut is a little. . . thinner than before. And since I knew they were getting a place in NorCal (where temps are much colder than Hawaii or Florida), I figured he'd need a little something to keep his head warm. But I couldn't make my Pops any old hat. Not for the King of Pun. (I once sent him a card which read, "Happy Farters' Day"; when I was in HS, I would give him the ugliest, gaudiest ties I could find - and this was in the 80's, people!!) And so I knit him (drumroll, please):
Knitty's HALLOWIG!!! (as always, modeled by the amazingly cute wee monkeygurl!)
Yeah, she's a ham. But at least she's more animated than Head.
So, for the Jman, in addition to the privilege of being WMG's father, he was taken to see a movie tailor-made for him. Gawd. It only reinforced my practice of napping while he and the WMG go to the movies.
Plus, I was caught smootching with my boyfriend.
(yes, if there's a camera around, WMG will be in front of it!)
Hey, you make me get out of bed before noon on a weekend, you have to deal with the consequences.
