Day 81 POTD More Green & Doug's Easter Adventure

A little green St. Patrick's day foot. Not mine. Mine would be bigger!

I don't know about YOUR significant others, but mine is kind of getting into the whole POTD thing. When it's green theme, he looks for green, to point out to me. He was quite pleased to find this in Target, so of course, I whipped out my camera and took his and it's photo. Note that I cut his head off. I did this on purpose. I had another photo WITH his head on, but I kind of liked his head cut off in this one.

And then last night I sweetly extracted my husband's permission to tell you this tale about him (which I think is one of the wonderful perks of partnership--getting quirky stories about each other.)


None of my 3 children are coming home for Easter. So, I put together packages for them, Easter basket packages with junky goodies. My husband took one of the packages off to work with him to mail. When he got to work, he looked in the back seat, and, NO PACKAGE!

Not good. And then he had this vague memory of a "clunk" as he turned the corner on his way to work. And went racing back toward home, to the corner of the clunk, and there was my son's package in the snow in the street!

But the Netflix envelope that had been on top of the box (on top of the car) was no where to be found. He searched the street, and curb, through the filth of snirt, and trash and beer cans and total slimey road stuff, but no Netflix.

He headed back toward work, feeling kind of despondent, giving up, no doubt thinking thoughts like "I'm not telling Angela," and then about 4 blocks later, in the divider of the road, was a red square! He stopped the car, put on the blinkers, jumped out, and retrieved the Netflix envelope!
He was either aided by angels, or perhaps in the spirit of the week, little green leprechauns, but against all unliklihood, he retrieved both things! And, depending on how you look at it, he either got to keep his head, or was missing something in the first place.

That is a very funny story! Brian and the girls are also getting into it. Although they don't so much point things out, but check every morning to see what the pictures are. Meg calls the comments "compliments" and checks to see how many "compliments" there are each day. It has been a fun thing! I am available on Saturday, so if you are around, give me a call!

LOVE the book--what a hoot! And man, what a gem with the box; mine would've given up when he realized it was missing.

LOL. Yes my dh is way to into MY potd, at least I try to tell him and the kids its mine not thiers. So glad he retrieved everything so he could mail it.

I've said it before--he looks amused. My DH is always asking me what's the theme and what's my picture for today. He also leaves things on the car a lot--the worst one was the checkbook. We did get that back thanks for a good Samaritan.
