Its Beth…

…and this is Lee


Today is Lee’s 27th birthday, which also falls on Juneteenth – a much celebrated day in Texas history.

This very important day commemorates the abolition of slavery in Texas.

If we still lived there, Lee would have a parade on his birthday – but we live in Tennessee.

So in order to celebrate blog style, I will parade 27 random things you may or may not want to know about my husband.

1. Lee drinks from the same Quills coffee mug every morning

2. He has an unusually large space in between his big toe and second toe.

3. Lee always makes at least 4 extra cups of coffee in the morning than he actually drinks

4. The day I scrub the bathroom is without fail the day he trims his beard.

5. Lee’s preferred toilet read is a Jcrew magazine.

6. Lee knows four chords on the guitar. He fires them up about every 6 months. (It will always be the same song he played six months prior).

7. He loves cookie dough.

8. Lee is constantly in search of the perfect pair of jeans.

9. He once met Willie Nelson

10. Lee will never go bald.

11. Lee associates manliness with beard mass.

12. Lee puts a tune to just about everything he says to Abbey.

13. If I fail to have dinner ready when he is hungry, he will not complain. He will just eat chips and salsa.

14. Lee cannot successfully go in a grocery store. He says the electronic door zaps his brain and he instantly forgets everything, even the list he has in hand.

15. Lee loves Matt Foster stories.

16. Although we have plenty of seating in our house, Lee prefers a pillow and the floor.

17. Lee will not eat a meal, under any circumstance, unless he has a drink beside him.

18. His senior year in high school Lee’s ERA was 1.27 – oh the glory days.

19. Every time we go to Target Lee tries on the same Fedora hat and looks at me as if this is the day we should purchase it.

20. Lee will let the shower run at least 10 minutes before he actually get in – just to make sure the water is hot.

21. Lee loves a good poop story. They never cease to make him laugh.

22. Lee’s does not like chunky salsa.

23. Lee has the ability to grow a fro – head and beard.

24. Lee always squeezes toothpaste from the bottom – his wife does not.

25. He is my little weather forecaster – he knows what Gary Pickens knows, before he knows it!

26. Lee loves the Cubs – they’ll win it some day.

27. Without fail, wherever we go, Lee will stop and have to get a diet Pepsi.

Happy Birthday Babe – You are in your late twenties ya old fart!

Love you!

    Beth I think you might have to start scrubbing the bathroom everyday, then maybe that thing he calls his manliness will disappear like it should ;-)
