Big Boys And Their Toys

My Hero
generally reads my blog.
He sometimes thinks it
is funny.
Sometimes, I get the
eye roll
(y'all KNOW the
EYE ROLL right?;>)
The eye roll usually is accompanied
by the word
when he thinks I have
touched on the naughty
side of things.
But, usually, he just
reads and leaves

he came in all excited
and asked me to do a
blog about him and

What about?
I'll email you.
It's about a
What kind of toy?
One with wheels. mean like
our Little Man rides?
You mean like THIS one?

How about THIS one?

Oh My!
Does one size fit all?

Apparently it does.
I see the shoe horn worked!
Side view
Rear view
What are ya gonna do with it?
Sell it!
Of course you are!

I think you have a least
Wheeled things that
you were gonna sell, too.

Let's just say this is the
last time you two are
allowed to go out on a
Saturday morning

And you complain that
I want to spend money

your photo name

Oh, I know all too well when a car can come rolling in to the garage and that is just fine with them, but if I want something I get the we don't need that look or we can't afford that. I remind him of his cars and he says that is an investment. Sure it is. Actually he can't buy anything either these days. Thank goodness.

Your Paint--his car, hmmm. He should be grateful, it could have been something a whole bunch more expensive.

I say keep the paint and get rid of the car..kind of like the sports car and motorcycle that hubs had to have, that sits in our garage wondering when they will see the light of day:) Yep thats a guy for you....

Unknown said...

Well, I am on your hubby's side as I am the one who drags in the cars ... hubby just sighs. Tell hubby 'good choice'! Love it.

Have a lovely day ~

Boys will be boys...they are never too old for toys!


Tete said...

I could do that car...I could do the paint, too. I'm easy like that...but I think you should get more paint than in the photo and of course, more stuff to paint. YOU could paint the car....teal would be a good color.
Don't forget to use a roller.

You are not allowed to push me anywhere close to a hill...or a lake...or a major highway. Just saying.

My hubs likes his toys too~the motorcycle came last year and i grin and bear it when asked to ride. I would much prefer a sports car!!!

Angie@slipcoveredgrey said...

I wonder if chalk paint works on refinishing cars too? Ha! I guess you have nothing to feel guilty about now when purchasing cans and cans of it! Enjoy!

Unknown said...

that got a giggle from me...he is so sweet in that wheeled toy of huis let him keep it Diana !

Go Aaron Go Packers !
time to break out the cheese and crackers
and summer sausage
and brats' and beer

ooo, now thats a fancy car!

Nellie said...

I LOVED your "shoehorn" comment! Let us know how the "selling" goes.:-)

Sweet Tea said...

We all like our "toys", it's just that some toys cost so much more than others. Mr's toys are books, fairly inexpensive, but an ongoing storage problem. My toys are lipsticks. No problem there. LOL!! Your dh's toy is expensive so I think he owes you a LOT of paint. Just sayin...

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Yay! I can comment! : )

Love the big boy's car, but I love the little one's car, too. Enjoy your football! We will be watching the Giants game later today.

Donna said...

Yeah, I'm with you - - - seriously.....

The shoe horn is the best comment yet! The best thing about him buying this car is after he gets it fixed up, he'll drive it around a bit, beat the tar out of himself (I've owned a few of these so I know they are some of the most uncomfortable rides!!) and maybe will sell it!

Oh, Diana - if you haven't already, go buy the paint. If you have, you need to pose it on the kitchen counter for a couple of days!! he he he!

Have a great game!


Debbie said...

Ooooo, I LIKE the car!!!! Your hubby isn't the only one that would need a shoehorn to get into that thing tho!
Oh yeah....pushing poor Tete down the hill in her wheelchair??? maybe we should wait until summer.

ShabbyESP said...

Hello Diana,
Your hubby looks so happy with his new toy!!!!
Then he can't say anything when you want to buy some paint right?????
Enjoy your week!!! AlWAYS fun to visit you!!!
Suzann ~xoxo~

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

OH sure looks like a big boy to me! My guy would have some fun with it anyway!

Anonymous said...

This is so cute! I love the shoe horn! The car's a guy thing! It could be worse; he could come home with a motorhome! Mine did! I'm with you on the paint! It's fun in a can!

Cindy Adkins said...

LOL--this was great!!! And no kiddin'....isn't that paint a fortune? LOL XO Cindy

Gabriele Agustini said...

Snazzy-lookin' car!
But I'm more interested in the paint. :)
What ya gonna paint with it?! Pictures please.
Sending hugs ~

Hide their check books and credit cards.

Pam Kessler said...

Mine brings home stray motorcycles. Yours brings home cars and motor homes. And where is that orange thing anyhow?

Suzanne@Meridian Road said...

Ha! It has to have a motor to be worth anything. Or at least wheels.
I think you are totally justified in buying the paint. Heck, get 4 or 5 colors!

If SHE can figure it out.......... said...

Did Dad buy this car? Where in the heck is he storing it? It does look pretty cool, though. Not very 'roomy' though :)
