Oh Good Grief Daddy

13 Mar

These days, I can’t let my so called human daddy go anywhere.  He *always* gets into some type of trouble.  St. Patrick’s Day is Monday, March 17th.  Dad, the ever loving-gotta-have-some-fun with the holiday, went out on a mission to find some trouble fun.  I will share what he found today and tomorrow.

Now, my dad is part Irish so he thinks this holiday is made for him – snorts

Today, dad found a drinking buddy.  This little guy that dad named O’Donnell sits on his shoulder so that he doesn’t have to drink alone.  And when dad does start to drink, not only does he have a drinking buddy but I’m sure after a few, O’Donnell will even start to talk to him – snorticles.  Good grief.

And just a note.  With dad being part Irish, he once grew a mustache and beard.  You guessed it.  It was redder than O’Donnell’s beard.  He was going to grow one for St. Patrick’s Day but mom said absolutely not.  Dad replied by telling mommy, “You’re not the boss of me.”  Well, you see who won that argument – snorts.

But never fear, even with dad’s Irish roots he doesn’t even drink alcohol.  I guess mom will change the color of his sweet tea to green with a little green dye.  That should make him merry just the same!

    O’Donnell is a great buddy. Please ask him for the pot of gold, brother :o) With tea and yummy irish cakes and Bing Crosby’s “When irish eyes are smiling” you can celebrate the best St. Patricks Day ever :o)

      That is all so very true. Wait until you see dad’s find tomorrow. OMP (oh my pig). Mommy will *never* go out with him in public wearing that thing tomorrow. And O’Donnell at least gives him a reason to talk to himself – snorts. XOXO – Bacon
      P.S. Hows the crib going today. Much better?

        He found something what he can wear? shamrock-glasses? or green glitter shoes? Brother, they are crazy. Mom incited dad to repair the washer…. I think we both know how this adventure will end.

        Snorts – if like my dad – PLOL (piggy laughing out loud) – This can’t end well. Mom asked daddy to install one of those hand held shower thingies once. That’s all it took. A few minutes later, dad walked out holding the shower nozzle with a huge chunk of sheet rock. Dads – you gotta love them – snorts. XOXO – Bacon

        hahahaha…. I just imagine your dad with the nozzle and the sheetrock BOL!

        Mom wasn’t too thrilled. It was really a comedy in the making. Dad is so *not* mechanically inclined for anything. XOXO – Bacon

      Snorts. Mommy says she had a boss once that would say that to her every morning. It was great to hear him. She misses him these days since he got moved to another department 😦 XOXO – Bacon

    We’ll be celebrating St. Pat’s Day around here – Mom does the corned beef/cabbage/boiled potatoes thing and Dad and Mom have one green beer together (well, alright, my Mom has one my Dad has two) and I get a tiny bite of corned beef. Don’t much care for all the other stuff though. We have a couple of blog pawties too – one at the Tabby Cat Club and the other at Cat Scouts…..I guess I’ll be a pawty animal (so what’s new?!).

    Hugs, Sammy

      03/13/2014 at 3:19 pm

      Snorts – you party animal – nah – I would have never guessed that cousin. I’ll tell you a secret. My mom and dad have *never* had corned beef. Shocker huh? Even with dad’s roots, no corned beef. How can you know you don’t like something until you’ve tried that something, right? XOXO – Bacon

        03/13/2014 at 3:30 pm

        Indeed! Mom tosses the whole mess into her big crockpot and cooks the heck out of it all day – it actually smells (and tastes) totally divine. Your Mom and Dad are missing out on something yum!

      • PigLove

        03/13/2014 at 3:49 pm

        I think they need to try it…. okay I want to try it. I’m going to write corned beef on mom’s grocery list. I might even text her Saturday when she goes to the grocery store to remind her 🙂 I’m getting good on this texting stuff lately. XOXO – Bacon

    Oh Bacon…do tell your mom to cook a corned beef…and tell her that they shrink about 50% while cooking, so don’t let the size scare her that it will be to much beef once cooked. Get a recipe on line that looks easy to her.(hint…simple meal to make…just takes some time) Then “reuben” sandwiches the next day.(recipe on line also) Our mom is a red headed “Fitzgerald” with an Irish temperament, so we do understand your Daddy!!

    I wish I could play with O’Donnell. I would shake him and toss him all over the place. And then bring him on the couch and try to hatch him like an egg. That’s how I roll.

    Love and licks,

      Snorts. OMP. That is too funny. Daddy is laughing hysterically at that. I think secretly he wants to do the same. Snorts. XOXO – Bacon

    Before meeting you, Bacon, I might have suggested “Green Eggs and Ham.” I would NEVER do that now. Your daddy is a lot of fun!
