This month we are discussing that one item that you received as a gift that you absolutely HATED. I mean despised. I mean you wanted to toss your cookies because it was that awful. Oh my friends – this is going to be a great one that I’m going to let my mom do. Yes, it’s that good. Are you ready? Here we go – tighten your seat belt it’s going to be a bumpy ride – snorts
This happened a long time ago… really long time ago. Mom and dad were still dating at the time. Dad thought he would do something very sweet for mom and wanted to buy her a leather jacket. Awesome huh? So dad went out and bought mom a leather jacket. He brought it to her and he was so excited about it. He was so proud of what he had done. Something so touching – who wouldn’t want a leather jacket.
Mom opened the box and peaked into the box. That’s when things changed. Mom was excited about getting a leather jacket out of the blue. She was not so excited about the color. Daddy had gotten mom a PURPLE leather jacket. Purple. There’s nothing wrong with the color purple. Mom loves that color. But when she put on the purple leather jacket and looked into the mirror – oh my piggy heavens. She looked like BARNEY! Do you remember Barney? I love you – You love me Barney. Shakes piggy head.
You can imagine that conversation between mom and dad right there over the purple leather jacket. Oh, and mom politely declined its acceptance and explained to daddy why. Of course he understood there and didn’t think about Barney. He said mom was beautiful in it – no one would ever mistake her for a singing dinosaur. But, just in case you know mommy still said no.

Instead of thinking she looked like Barney, Mommy should have imagined it made her look like Prince instead. OK, maybe that’s just as bad…

Snorts with piggy laughter. Which one is the worse of two evils – Barney or Purple Rain Prince. WOW – who knew both would be equally as bad – XOXO – Bacon

Right after I hit Send I had thought of Grimace as well! Geez, was everything colored purple lame or what?

hahahaha like Barney? I hope it wasn’t actually made from Barney… I haven’t seen him in TV for a long time :o)
My mom got a yellow and black leather jacket once, as all kids had such jackets in a racer style… she looked like a crime scene tape on two legs in that thingy… :o)

Oh snorts and snaps. That is too funny brother. I can just imagine your mom with her crime scene jacket and my mom in her Barney jacket out on the town. Hilarious. That would be so funny to see the big dinosaur covered in crime scene. Snorts with piggy laughter. XOXO – Bacon

Mom was so heartbroken. She always wanted a real leather jacket but purple?! No way. Every time she tried it on that day she could just hear Barney singing in her ear. She hated to tell daddy that but she hated it. Thankfully he returned it and got his money back. Eventually he did it right though. He did get mom a great leather jacket that she loved. XOXO – Bacon

Well, that was so sweet of your dad, Bacon. I think he won’t ever make a mistake like that 🙂 We loved to be part of your show and tell event. It brings back so much memories 🙂 Pawkisses for a wonderful weekend 🙂 ❤

Aaaww thanks my friend. I love that you love it too. It’s so much fun for all of us to come together and share things and have such a great time!! Have a great weekend! XOXO – Bacon

well, that proved two things:
One: He listens to his woman. He knew she liked the colour purple. And he listened again when she said, not with this jacket.
Second: He is no coward – he went back into that shop and got his money back – that takes courage from a man!

Most definitely! He’s learned over the years thank goodness! XOXO – Bacon

Purple has it’s place. TMI–I like purple underwear–Oh yeah! I like some purple clothing, but I can see your point. Clothing is tough to buy for anyone. Just saying………….. Guys don’t always appreciate the whatever we think they would love ya know. LOL
05/29/2015 at 2:36 pm
Oh yes. I understand completely. At least he took it in good stride and had a do over to make it better. XOXO – Bacon

hahaha…purple? Purple goes with everything, right? I would have loved to hear that conversation.

Oh my friend – it was great. How does one tell someone that they hate it when you are dating and the other person was so happy to be doing something so wonderful. Thankfully, daddy took it well and over the years he has learned how to read mom better with these things. XOXO – Bacon

Dad got my Mom a fuzzy grey bathrobe. When she wears it she looks like Chuck E. Cheese.
