So what did Dickidoo get you for his birthday?

So anyhow, yeah, Dickidoo DID actually get me something for his birthday.  In fact he got me 3 somethings.... a really cool travel mug with antlers and camouflage hunters all over it, an Outback vest and an Outback duster.  For those who aren't familiar with dusters, those are the really cool long coats that cowboys wear, the ones with the little cape over the shoulder.  Here is a picture of a similar duster, cowboy not included... damn!

So why did Dickidoo buy ME a present for HIS  birthday?  Well, it could have been for one of two reasons.  First, he has always seemed to make a major purchase of some sort right at my birthday, leaving him financially incapable of buying ME a gift for my birthday, so I have reciprocated by demanding that he buy ME a present for HIS  birthday.  Another reason may have been that his friends were shopping in the same store at the same time we were, and all of his friends were buying their wives stuff.  Bandwagon?  Who cares, I got a really cool travel mug, a vest and a duster!

Colorado Springs has been hit hard by a series of ailments.  My family has picked them up one after the other.  Last week the girls had the stomach flu.  This week they have head colds and Art has the flu.  I had the the Chalupas.  Without going into too much detail let me just say that my digestive system doesn't like Taco Bell Chalupa Supremes as much as my taste buds do.  I find the reward worth the consequences.

My family may not agree if they enter the throne room after me.

I shall be turning Dust Bunnies private for a day so that I can update.  Please check back with me in a couple of days.  I shall just be adding tags but don't want to bombard my loyal readers with repeat alerts.

Till then, have a happy, dusty day!

Oh you have to take a picture of you in that coat! My Joe has been wanting one for years...I laugh because down here in Florida when the heck would he wear it? Right now it's Feb and the weather is 83 degrees and stormy. I tease him and tell him to let us move to the mountains and he can have "his" coat...lol. Hope you have been enjoying the funnies I send if not, just tell me don't want to be annoying...take care, love Sandi

You have to model the duster.  Hope you all feel better soon.

So that's the western version of a duster, eh?

My grandmother used to wear something called a duster, too -- it's like a housecoat or bathrobe. For each of grandma's birthdays, I remember my mom buying her a new duster. LOL So I mailed my sister a duster for her 40th birthday (she's 4 years older than me.) She mailed it back to me on my 40th....then I mailed it back to her on her 50th....and now it's hanging in MY closet again since I had my 50th last year. ROFL

Personally, I like your western version better -- very sexy!

Hope you and the oompas are feeling better soon,
:) Carol

Dust, dusters, dusty day...the theme of your day!  Hmmm, wonder if my husband will buy that give ME something for HIS birthday.  Um, probably not.  Not even if I told him "well, Dickidoo does!"
