"s" is for...

In no particular order...

Ten reasons I love STRAT!

1) He can "walk with Kings and keep the common touch." (quote courtesy of Mrs. Sassafras)
2) I can't go anywhere without meeting someone who knows and loves him.
3) He instilled in me my love for Mississippi State.
4) He loves airplanes, is quite the scholar of World War II and watches "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives" on the Food Network religiously.
5) All he ever wants is for his family to be in one room together.
6) He loves my mom more today than when he married her.
7) He is an award-winning miniature airplane builder.
8) He gets choked up every time he watches Field of Dreams or when State wins the Egg Bowl.
9) He's Greek!
10) He's the only one I want to talk to when I'm sick (Right, KK?).

I always feel a bit victorious when a friend bravely marches into the blog-o-sphere. Katy and I have been friends for years, thanks to our hubbies, and we always have fun together. So, here's a shout-out to my buddy and new fellow blogger! Welcome Agnews!

Woo woo! Thanks for the shout out! Also, I LOVE what you said about Strat! That is the best ever... Your mama and daddy are the greatest and they have a great daughter too! I had a blast on Sunday... We really have to do it more often!

I've got to 2nd #7. He put together a paper model of the plane I learned to fly in to go on the grooms cake at our wedding. All he did when I asked was smile and say, "No problem." It looked phenomenal.

There was another time Strat helped me out, but that's for another day ;)

What a sweet daughter! Your dad deserves all of those compliments. I've been married to him for 31 years, and I agree with them. MOM
