And Another Week Arrives

It's a close call as to which of the two of us weighs the most..



I found out over the weekend, when I landed up flat on my arse slap bang in the sea.

(Little b*****d..)

Some bright spark tossed his dog a pebble out there, just as I'm putting Jake on the lead to head off to the car.


Every pebble on the beach belongs to my idiot dog.

He's totally crap on that lead.  I'm not ever, ever winding that darned thing around my wrist again.  I've never flown so fast in my life.




So embarrassing.  My bag of dog-shit also split open on the skid down. Very messy..

Hey-ho.  Talk about a squelchy drive home.  It took ages to shower all the sand out of my bum.

He's making do with a run in the glen from here on out.

Bec got stopped by another pervy old man photographer the other week, asking her to do a few test-shots for a magazine cover.  She took his card for me to check out, and he seemed kosher enough, has a website and a studio in the centre of town.  I spoke to him over the phone, told him she doesn't do any lingerie or such-like (nudge, nudge), and that she'll have a (very muscular) friend in tow turfing up with her to any shoot.  

I think it came out rather well..





 For a person claiming she doesn't want to model, she sure does wind up being photographed a lot.

                         ______________________________


Hubby has been quite the local celeb this week, he's been interviewed by no less than THREE local radio stations.  Sadly, being work related, it's all dry as dust, but still.. I forget he doesn't just iron, y'know?  There's also talk of him getting a slot on the (national) BBC - watch this space, kids!

                           ______________________________

 
OMG, I can't believe the cost of meat these-days, just look at the bill I got from my local butcher's on Saturday..

 Sheesh - I don't care how good his sausages are, that's just gotta' be taking the p**s?

My debit card curled up and died on your behalf! :) Yikes!

Those photos are BEAUTIFUL! Bec is gorgeous. And the dude did a fantastic job. She really doesn't want to model?

texwisgirl said...

oh, a dog on a mission is a force to be reckoned with! sorry you got the wrath of that one!

your daughter is GORGEOUS!!! wow! i'd hire her a bodyguard, for sure!

Postman said...

If I ever have a daughter, I hope she wants to be a...soldier, or a police detective, or an archaeologist or something, and not a model. I think I'd worry too much about all the pervy old men out there.

Sheesh! Did the sausages come with a solid-gold wrapper or somesuch?!

Shopgirl said...

Haha, yikes about that dog incident and the bill, but your daughter is gorgeous.

Thanks for entertaining us once again. Your family sounds so prosperous and wonderful.

Gorilla Bananas said...

The meat in your sausages must have come from a well-trained circus elephant. Have you ever thought of raising your own livestock?

mrsnesbitt said...

Does he make his own pies carol????? get in there hun .......ask him - if so does he have a little champion machine??? lol! Dxx

Portia said...

The photos of your daughter are beautiful! (very tasteful, too, with no lingerie in sight!)

You need a smaller dog. :)

Ms. A said...

Sorry 'bout the busted butt. (Couldn't help the chuckle) Perhaps if you gained a little weight, you could hold your own with the dog.

Bec is drop dead gorgeous. Girl could make a living without lifting a finger. A GOOD LIVING!

silly rabbit said...

Your Bec is gorgeous!
Lol about the dog on his mission to keep all his pebbles in place.
Sand up the bum? No fun! =;)

ellen abbott said...

Bec is yours? What a beauty. And why doesn't she want to model especially when she's got muscle that accompanies her?

Holy cow! And I mean that literally.

mythopolis said...

Oh! I had to laugh at the beach scene...my dog has a thing for squirrels, she is quite well-behaved, but if a squirrel pops up, she is gone in a flash and suddenly cannot hear me screaming, 'Nooooo!'

Bec is a head-to-toe knock-out. I hope she chooses her options wisely.

God help us all at the grocery store! If gas prices go up, trucking goes up, grocery stores go up, and we pay the price. I don't like this picture.

Wow, that was awkward said...

I like how you write about the cool stuff going on with your hub and daughter while your slice of life is taking a sand bath.

YELLOWDOG GRANNY said...

she is just absolutely beautiful..

Ami said...

You're beautiful, too. And I think your dog is sorta cute as well.

As for the meat market? I think you should shop somewhere else.

;)

Leslie: said...

I always thought Bec was model material and it would only be a matter of time before someone would snatch her up. Maybe she'll be able to pay for her own uni and let you off the hook. Hah! lol That bill! Wow, you guys must eat a heckova lotta meat! Just don't buy any more sausages! LOL

Leslie: said...

Oh yes, I wish I could have seen you sliding down the hill, dog sh*te spattering everywhere! *roaring with laughter* Sorry, but the mind's eye...and all that..

Grayquill said...

Your daughter sure is a beauty...
Now can we talk dog S&*#>? You sure have a great ability to give me a full belly laugh. The visuals you paint are awesome or would it be better to say tragic. Your story reminded me of when my son was about four and he had our german shepherd on a leash (btw it is leash not lead) I ask him where he was taking Burlap (dog's name) his answer was pretty funny as he passed by quckly hanging on for dear life, "Where ever he wants to take me....

Rock Chef said...

Feeding a big family doesn't come cheap! :-)

I can see that you would have trouble holding that big dollop when he got going - we can have trouble with our lab...

Those shots of your daughter are great - she is a natural isn't she? Good call sending a minder with her though - there are a lot of slimeballs out there.

Anthony Duce said...

Enjoyed, especially the narrative, the expressed humor is great. Great photos.

Fen said...

LOL well I'm glad you got all the sand out, that can be mighty uncomfortable!

Bec looks amazing, but my fave is the last b&w one, something about her eyes has me spellbound.

Akelamalu said...

My DIL was dragged on her face (ouch) by their 3 rotties the other week so I can imagine your pain. :(

Your gal is just beautiful as are the photos of her. She could really make it as a model - she takes after her Mum. x

That meat bill is a joke right?

Skunkfeathers said...

Surround your daughter with a SEAL team ;-)

foam said...

ouchie on behalf of your bum!!
it's not surprising your daughter gets photograghed a lot. she gets her modeling looks from her mother, don'tcha know.
i got a $2000.00 bill a few years ago when i purchased some milk, juice and a few other sundry items at the local grocers. i gave the cashier this look ._. until she rectified the bill.

TechnoBabe said...

The dog looks like twice your size. It is a wonder you didn't sprain your wrist.

The photos of your daughter are lovely. She looks like a professional model.

Nancy said...

Your daughter is beautiful - if she decides not to model you will always have these pics.

My black lab does the same with her leash - until we found the Gentle Leader. Check it out - no more tearing arms out of sockets! It works like a horse halter.

Mushy said...

Wow...great dog shot! Bec ain't bad either...kind'a like her mother!

Pat Tillett said...

Sometimes we forget how strong dogs are when they really get at it. Your daughter is a beauty and the photos reflect it. Hope you are having a great week (other than the dog incident).

~Babs said...

I'm betting you also gave Bec beautiful brains to go with all that outward beauty! To make absolutely wise choices. Always.
(well, with only a little help from Mum, that is)
Looks to me she could write her own ticket at whatever she chose to do.
Had to laugh at your doggie's approach to pebble-ing,,,,so typical, but a real challenge. Glad you still have two arms!
BTW: Who has more gorgeous hair,,,you or the pup? Great photo, Shrink!
Who knew sausages could cost so much!

Brian Miller said...

oh nice..she is gorgeous...

ugh on the leaning to fly behind the pups...glad you were ok...and the bag did not pop...ew...

nice on hubs too!

Rob-bear said...

Marvellous dog, though a tad possessive. Sorry to learn of your misadventure.
Great-looking daughter, and a great looking mom.
The butcher's bill? The decimal point was messed up. I suspect £495.92 for a year's worth of sausage. (I new saw such a bill!)

Ms. ~K said...

Well Honey, I just stopped by to say "Howdy", but have ended up reading your blog for the past 30 minutes!
Your family is amazing, Sam's birthday party post had me in tears...
So happy to meet you all,
Kit

Jayne said...

Shrinky- It's always fun to hear what going on over on that island of yours. Hope you're healing well...

The photos of your daughter are stunning, as always. It looks like she's going to have to stop denying that modeling career. She's a beauty and a natural.

Good to catch up with you! *hugs*

Putz said...

that is about a hundred thousand usa dollars and yes you have an absolutely ravishing daughter<>><<>we have a bec also and she is also ravishing, but doesn't model, teaches school

X. Dell said...

(1) At that price, it would be cheaper to fly first class to New York to buy meat.

Unless what you actually purchased was a cattle ranch.

(2) Actually, I'm rather curious to hear your husband on the BBC. If they put him on the air, his job can't be that "dry."

(3) The pictures turned out quite well. It's good that you weigh in to keep those pervy old men on their best behavior.

Seriously, though, she could be building up an impressive portfolio, especially if she's tall (can't tell from the pic).

(4) Considering that the bag burst, count your blessing that sand was the only thing you were washing away.

I'd suggest that if you find yourself in that situation again, mount yourself to a large sheet of paper, and tie a bedsheet around your ankles. (Remember, the longer the tail, the higher you can fly--depending on the length of the lead.) That way, you'll stay off the ground for prolonged periods of time.

Suldog said...

OK, there's so much to say here...

First off, I hope you take this the right way, but she's dead sexy. I know I'm a borderline old perv myself, but she is. I don't blame those who want to take a shot or two. Here's hoping she makes some money from it!

The dog story is hilarious. Sorry about the sand up your bum!

Here's hoping Hubby gets a few pounds, as well.

Finally, I think those sausages were stuffed with pheasant tongues. I can imagine no better reason for the cost.

(Well, OK, I can imagine a whole bunch of better reasons, but none I'll mention here with photos of your dead sexy daughter because you might get the authorities after me.)

BRUNO said...

Well, I'm trying to come-up with a "cute" comeback, here? But, I'm sorry---between the bag of dog-shit splitting, and you flushing the sand out of your bum? There's not much that I can add to those, in order to "top"-you!

Now, please forgive me---but I'm trying NOT to picture the position you were using in the shower, to flush-out "the offending matter".

But, ONLY as a GENTLEMAN, I'm trying NOT to, mind you.

As a normal-MAN? I'd pay about the same-amount as the price for that "other"-meat, for a full-sized "wall-hanger"-picture of that "bum-washing".....!!!☺

Barbara Shallue said...

Ah, you made me laugh, picturing you getting dragged through the sand and sh** - and oh my gosh, your daughter is a natural model. Gorgeous! Congrats on your husband and condolences on the butcher bill!

Cricket said...

Jeez... is that meat bill real? Or a "cashier error?" Mayve a little oopsie on the decimal point?

I mean, isn't that like $100,000 US on meat? Abnd I get irritated paying $5.49/lb for top round. Yikes.

Hope you're having a great summer, doggy accidents notwithstanding.

I'll be more regular visiting in the fall, I promise :-)

Middle Child said...

Beautiful photos and I think your doggie weighs much more than you. How many sausages did that buy????

otin said...

sucks about the dog shit, but OMG what gorgeous pictures!!

secret agent woman said...

Lovely photos of Bec.

My greyhound once nearly dislocated my shoulder leaping for a squirrel.

Dee Newman said...

Dogs: they're more trouble than they are worth, but I love them anyway.

Bec: as I have said before, stunningly beautiful!

As for the price of animal flesh, my advice is to eat lower on the food chain.

Grandma's scrapbook said...

So. This is a wonderful post. beautiful photos, the daughter of you, I would like to reaction, preljepa, and has a very mysterious look that is a sign of great success in life. Your family, I wish all the best in these hot summer days.

Alice said...

B.T.Bear (esq.) said...

:@}

Scott from Oregon said...

Well, your daughter has obviosly got the bones for modeling, and I am so happy you and Jake love each other so much you'll roll around in the sand together...
