BABY GIRL

No we aren't having another one.😎

Daughter's boyfriend asked me to go shooting last Wednesday night. I told him I couldn't because we were getting things ready to go camping. He said ok and I thought nothing else about it.

Got a text from him Thursday around lunch and told me he wanted to come by and talk to me before we headed out. I said fine. I'd be home around 5. After thinking about it for awhile I put 2 and 2 together. He texted around 5 and said he was in the way. I went and got my old shotgun and laid it on the gun table with some Hoppes and a rag. Heard him pull up so I stuck my head out and said I'm in the shop. He came in and said what you doing Mr. Tracy. I turned and looked at him and said I'm just cleaning this old gun. His eyes got big and then he laughed and said I guess you know why I'm here.

He asked me for permission to marry my daughter. He is a good kid with a good family. Likes shooting, guns hunting etc. We talked for nearly 2 hours. He is a paramedic hoping one day to be part of the medi vac crew. Daughter is graduating in September and going to be an RN. Wedding date not definite yet but will be in the spring. Daddy's Little Girl is all grown up.

    Good on him. Not many of these kids these days have the respect to even think about formally asking dad first. I often wonder if there will ever be a guy that I won’t hate the second my daughter is old enough to date. Ugh.

    Don't know if I am sorry for you or happy for you.

    Just remember they move back in 3 times and there are more of them each time.

    First of all, Congratulations

    I received a phone call asking permission. Was very pleased that he did that. They lived out of state so no chance to have a shotgun out.
    Him asking speaks a lot, we wish them luck

    If you're lucky, you can get a dancer who can do the traditional "Zeffa" - danced with the "Shemadan" (lit candelabra) balanced on the head.

    I ain't looking for no dancer. If they want one you will be driving further west in Tn. You can choreograph it.

    Thanks everyone. I really hope they make. It's hard to make one work now a days. I'm glad they decided to get married before having to because of pregnancy. I will just keep my fingers crossed.

    Can do, but the travel charges would be killer! They'd be better off with a local dancer, even if said dancer is female - heck, you might get lucky and find one prettier than me!
