Yes, This Stud Is Mine!!!!!

Yes!!! He's Mine!!!! This is my Roy, who at the age of 54 1/2, and hasn't water skied in years, is positive that he can get up on one ski - and - HE DID! He also climbed to the top of Half Dome with Emily and Snap last year and survived his fear of heights.

He is up for any adventure. He talks to complete strangers and actually gets them talking (something he learned from his dad)- he still flirts with sales ladies - and he still doesn't know he's flirting - and he still gets his problem resolved to his best interests everytime - even on the phone. He absolutely adores me and will do ANYTHING I ask of him, and I'm ashamed to admit that I've taken advantage of that trait - (never knowingly though). He thinks he can fix ANYTHING - and most of the time he does!!! (another trait from Gramps) He let me have dogs, when he doesn't even really like them. He even washes off Tanyon's (our dog) tummy when he pees, when I don't feel like it - which isn't very fun cause Tanyon has a crooked Ying Yang and can't hit the bush, but dribbles all over himself. Everyone in our church says he's the best at the pulpit, cause they love his smile and his voice. He loves to run whenever there's an errand to do or a project - he just starts running like he's a kid. He loves dumb jokes and loves to retell them to everyone, although Emily is usually the only one to laugh. He has beautiful blue eyes surrounded by oodles of laugh lines. He loves stupid - but really funny movies - you know the ones where the pre-teens are busting their guts - and he beats all of them for the most open, full, gut laugh. He likes to practice funny faces in the mirror, so he can use the best one at an appropriate time. He puts towels in the dryer and brings them to me, without me asking, if I'm cold and can't get warm. He gardens with me and pretends to love it, cause I love it. He loves to build sand castles with moats ( the moats are his passion) with anyone on the beach, but his favorites are his two grandsons. He loves to play football, basketball, or any sport, although he isn't particularly athletically gifted - but it has never stopped his enjoyment. He gets excited about something new, just like a little kid and his excitement is contagious. He......., oh this is just a start....but mostly...he loves me, and...HE'S MINE!

YING YANG will never have the same meaning to me...

abbie said...

Roy is truly wonderful, and I find myself lucky enough to be married to a son who is a lot like his dad. I wish I was around more often because I too love Roy's jokes (it's not just you Em). I am definitely impressed with the water skiing! Love you guys!

P dizzle said...

Am I the only one who is going to point out that it is YIN YANG? But dad sure is an amazing man, married to an amazing woman, with twice as amazing kids, and James and Chase just get it exponentially.

angie said...

actually, a yin yang has nothing to do with a dog part - mom is possibly trying to coin a new term...but, dad, you are the bestest - no doubt! we're all lucky to have you!

Sarah said...

I always knew I had a great brother, I was quite jealous when you stole him away. But it didn't take long until I was glad you had nabbed him and had also become part of the Robinsons. Love you Catherine

Katie said...

You two truly set the bar high for what the ideal marriage can be! I just love how much you love each other!!!!

Ann said...

Roy is wonderful! And so are you, Catherine. Two of my very favorite people! Love you both!

Susan said...

You are both remarkable! One of a kind treasures!! We love you so much!!! (When was the sking trip?)

Susan said...

I meant 'skiing.' I CAN SPELL once and a while. I just have a hard time typing when my cat (my boss)is lying across the keyboard demanding attention

Jane said...

I loved reading about Roy. His genuine kindness has made my life better.

That is amazing Roy, you know I still have never been able to get up on one ski - I think it just might be the most pathetic thing in the world - so I understand the achievement great job.

Emily said...

She is the best writter--

And I know that If I had ever finished my mothers day letter about her- it would be as beautiful as she writes about him. . .

The stud and the gal- are my two very favorites!! No one can top

Yours said...

Thank you my Love! I am proud that you would write about me and embarrassed at the same time. It is refreshing to see me through your eyes...a gift indeed!

The Robinson house is one of my favorite places on earth, and it is largely because Catherine and Roy love each other so fully. I don't know if they know how rare it is to find a couple like them.

Sometimes after dinner, they would get up and just start ballroom dancing with each other. (And they're pretty good!)

Josh said...

Roy is cream of the crop. I remember asking him if I could marry his daughter, he was very comforatable, relaxed and courteous. Completely unlike the way I plan to handle similar situations. Thanks Roy

Jared said...

Well I guess the votes are in and everyone loves Roy (myself included). I was talking to my wife the other day about the first (and only) time she met Gradma and you know what she said "I have never met anyone that made me fill so comfortable, loved and welcome in there house" so I guess we solved another question were Roy got his wonderfullness(is that a word) Love ya tonz
