Judging a Man by the Company He Keeps


His very best friend in the whole world is gay. In fact, every year, we celebrate our anniversary, and the anniversary of his friend and his partner, together. We travel together... Our kids love and look up to them.

He goes to Guatemala to treat those who have never seen a doctor, EVER.

He provides free medical care to inner city kids, with a gentle hand and a loving heart.

He values the sanctity of life, but would never, EVER, dream of telling a woman what she must do with her own body. And he certainly wouldn't judge any decision that woman makes.

He is traveling to Israel next year, to pay homage to his closest Jewish friends, yet his son is named after a dear Palestinian mentor.

He is the smartest person I have ever met. His IQ, as well as his humor and perspective, confirm this.

He never misses a swim meet, band concert or teacher conference, no matter how hard he's worked or how long he's gone without sleep.

He does laundry (I try to overlook the fact that he puts my bras in the dryer).

What an awful idiot, huh?

Post Script: He would want you all to know that he is very proud of the fact that this picture was taken years ago, and that he has been a fan longer than the other two of you out there.

I am participating in the decidedly Bi-Partisan PSF, hosted by our gals, Cecily and MamaGeek.

John McCain does your laundry?
Thats just sad.
Thats sweet of him to go to your swim meets, though. Maybe he should've skipped a couple to work on Pennsylvania.

I love you more now than ever. I judge people by whom they sleep with.

Your title post is very fitting...Thank you for giving him such kind regards...

On the butter question...it is a food storage item that can sit un-opened for 3-5 years without spoiling...which is a big deal when it comes to butter. After opening you do NOT need to refrig. either..just use (it will spoil..seal is broken). You can spread it or cook with it just like buying it fresh...

Hope that helped answer any questions..Tried to email but my computer spit me out and I lost my email ability..WHAT the H??!! Couldn't it have waited until I sent it!!??

I was so confused when I read that John McCain provides free medical care to inner city children.

You're husband sounds like a great man.

Tony said...

He married up for sure. But I am a bit freaked out that you let John McCain touch your bras. The whole alligator arms on the bra visual... OK I am leaving.

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

absolutely FAN-TAS-TCI!!!

MamaGeek @ Works For Us said...

Either way, what a neat photo opp!!

Louise, Carmine Superiore, Italy said...

Your husband does all that. He must be very special.

stefanie said...

I was quite confused until I got to your bras. I understand brilliant men and their limitations. What a tribute!

Bren said...

Sounds like quite a man! And great picture!

Love your blog name. Thanks for stopping by to visit me.

I ♥ your blog! Thanks for sharing :)

Michelle said...

What an awesome guy!

Hey, I have a picture of my husband with Bill Clinton...I'll have to PSF that someday! :)

Kelli @ Gohn Crazy said...

Way to go hubby. Sounds like a fantastic man. But I couldn't help but laugh at Jay's comment. *L* ;)

amelia bedelia said...

What a neat man you are married to. I love the picture!

Chris said...

Great picture. I've always been a fan too. Me and the other guy.
This was a grand tribute.

Wendyburd1 said...

What a GOOD hubby!! I was a bit confused too, but the whole laundry thing cleared it up for me IMMEDIATELY!!LOL!
You need the BraBaby, then he wouldn't place a bra in a contraption in the dryer....hopefully

Carissa(GoodnCrazy) said...

bi-partisan eh? Great picture. He sounds like a great guy. 'CLASSIC' Corvette or not.

I would so love to travel with the Drs. when they do the whole world travel to help the world's poor. I can only imagine how amazing it is?

PS I wrote the church chat just for you this week.

Sandra Foyt said...

I'm impressed! You actually let your husband do your laundry? After a few post-call incidents involving lost clothing or formerly white, now pink items, my husband is not allowed to do laundry. LOL!

The payment is usually sent by check, with a lag of 15 days plus transit time. He was already starting to pick up on some of the language so common in California. It ranks right up there with the Statue of Liberty and the American Flag as a symbol of our nations democracy. you will detox and may suffer a herxhiemer effect but that's about the limit of it, however like all sane people I advise you to consider carefully your options and preferably speak to a health care professional (a naturopathic doctor would be best, white coat doctors tend not to understand or want to understand anything which is not sold at 3000% mark-up by BigPharma and can be patented)before you start long term usage of colloidal silver in substantial dosages.

The biggest no no when asking your boss for a raise in pay is to use terror tactics. Her mission is to educate, inform and inspire through what she puts out there for us to view. Several dealings and business transactions are required on daily basis and this is the way we are completely dependent over banks. Proactive career planners develop and grow their skills, network, and personal foundation.
