Today's Guest Blogger is Reggie!


I don't know if there has ever been such a beloved stuffed fox.
My father shot this gorgeous animal years and years ago......
MY dad is an avid outdoorsman. He hunts, fishes, shoots at skeets......
I Love the outdoors because of him. He took us camping and I saw him clean
many a pheasant in the garage on Sundays after he came home from hunting....

BUT,
we started calling this fox Reginald or Reggie and he is now
a long loved strange and only my family would understand kind of guy.

My father turned 80 yesterday . My dad leaves the grease board up every day
to help my mom keep track of the date. I always draw on the board when I am
over. I leave my own tidbits for the day, "It is Elvis' birthday" Or some such nonsense.

So it seemed fitting that I find Reggie in my dad's office and bring him to
the party last night. He is such a routine thing around our house, I don't think
anyone even noticed Reggie in the kitchen.

Well, Perhaps Peter did. AL's Peter is new to our strange family quirks.
Peter has a great sense of humor. This sort of family behavior might frighten
the calmest of significant others....but not Pete!

My parents are always telling us to tell them what we want when they pass away.
I have only asked for one thing....
Reggie.

Happy Birthday DAD, even though you dont read the blog!

He's so nice! But I don't know if I'd want him hanging around... though I bet he's a pet I could keep in my college dorm! :P

Happy birthday to your Dad!

I have to tell you I was somewhat disappointed to find out that Reggie is no longer with us, but I suppose it would be weird if a live fox was sitting on a kitchen counter. What Donna Boucher said--John Irving indeed!
