…this little piggy…


Hey, guys. It’s Alex. I had some things I wanted to tell you, so I sent David and Ben a text and asked them if they’d do a post for me to “tag on” to. David texted back and said “How about a post subject?” So I told him I’d love a “toes” post if he could put one together. About 3 hours later, I got a text saying: “this little piggy” is waiting for your tag.” Thank you, David!
Since Mothers Day is tomorrow, I want to tell you about my candidates for “Mother of the year.” First, of course, there’s Carol. She’s a saint and all the guys – and kids – sort of think of her as “Mom.” Whether she’s cooking for us… or cleaning our cabins… or just being a good listener… there’s never been a sweeter lady. Then, there’s Denise. A perfect Mom for Cal and me… and a great “grams” for Bella, Chance and the rest of the kids. Then, there’s Roberta, and the “grands” and now “Jeanette”. But, honestly, my award goes to Bella. She “adopted” Chance the minute she saw him and even though he’s taller than her, she watches after and cares for him just like she’s his Mom. Then, when Matty came on the scene, she did the same for him. She’s taken responsibility for teaching him English – and God help anyone who messes with him. She’s our daughter and Cal and I don’t even pretend to be objective, but she’s a princess and gets our M.O.T.Y. award 🙂
On another subject, Denise, Scott and I closed on the purchase of the fishing camp last week and we’re already underway. We needed to get rid of the furniture, appliances and kitchen and bath cabinets, so Jim contacted a minister he knows. His is a really big Church that does a lot of charitable work. They came and looked, and are taking all the appliances and furniture. They appear to be good people and will put the stuff to good use. Also, we’ll get a nice tax deduction. We still need to find a home for the cabinets because they’re too good to trash, but we’re working on that. As soon as we get everything out, we’ll move the crews in and start stripping the interiors down to bare studs. Our engineering firm has been working on the drawings, specs, environmental impact study, etc., and should have everything ready for submission within 2 to 3 weeks. It’s going to be a very special little villa community. We’ll keep you posted.
We remain “self-quarantined” here at Table Rock – and happy as clams. We do hope to go back home and resume “normal life,” as soon as possible… but for now… all is well.
We wish all of you a happy Mothers Day – whether you’re able to be with your Mom or remembering her and the love she shared with you. xoxo Alex and Cal

Dude. It’s time for a fuckin’ foot frenzy!

We had a comment earlier today from “JakeinMO” saying: “Been a fan for a long time and appreciate all you do to keep us entertained. I have a huge foot fetish and love smell too! LOL”
So, we talked about it… and Ben said, “I wouldn’t mind a footie post. In fact, I wouldn’t mind getting’ neckid and playin’ with our feet under the covers.”
So, after we put Dub to bed, that’s what we’re gonna do.
Thanks for the suggestion, Jake. Sounds yummy!


xoxo
