42 comments


I politely asked Ben to help me pick out a few items for Father’s Day.  After twelve hours or more of him breathing down my neck, correcting everything I wrote, and just being down right irritating – I was thinking I should have just conquered this myself!!   By the time it was all over he was mumbling something about writing a book!!!  Such an ego!!!! 

Here are his picks – mostly.  I have a few picks myself.  He is very invested in knowing if y’all will think he came up with great ideas.  Needless to say, he certainly thinks so!!!

And away we go!!!!



BARBOUR WINDBREAKER & WATERPROOF.  BARBOUR IS A HOT BRAND HERE, BUT A CLASSIC FROM SCOTLAND.

Actually, this would be good year round.


HERE



SEAVEES MARINER’S BOOT

Ben bought these and he lives in them.  A cross between a desert boot and a sneaker.   They comes in three different  shades.

HERE


FILSON SMALL DUFFLE BAG HERE

AND




MEDIUM DUFFLE BAG HERE


These also come in different shades, but Ben likes these shades.






KNIFE – WINKLER HUNTING KNIFE WINS MR. SLIPPERSOCKSMAN’S EXPRESS APPROVAL.

It comes with a brown leather sheath and a maple wood handle.  It’s really good looking for a rustic knife.

The newest book by historian Stephen Harrigan.   This is a pre-order promise or an early Christmas present.  OK.  I’m laughing right now.  It’s 3:40 AM and Ben is hanging over my shoulder critiquing every word I write.

He says I should say:

“Larry McMurtry and Dan Rather say this book is destined to become a classic on Texas history.” 

Whew!!!  Ben just pronounced this good!!!

I HOPE YOU AND YOURS HAVE A WONDERFUL FATHER’S DAY!!!
