When someone makes you a promise do you take it in jest or do you take it seriously? Cindy and I threw out a a promise a few years back that was taken in jest, but proved otherwise while we were in New Mexico.
Do you remember the story I told you back in January of the Evil Twin? If not click The Evil Twin and check it out but be sure to come back and pick up here because I just think you may get a laugh out of this one too.
At the end of The Evil Twin I said “My Buddy did come back to live with Cindy and I, He survived the move to California and is patiently waiting for the right day when he surprises someone else”, with this said My Buddy now has a new home..For now anyway.
Way back then we told the boys that the first one to get married would be the one to get the surviving My Buddy Doll, they both laughed, you know that laugh that says Yeah Right!! This is the laugh that we got.
Now after several years of hiding and protecting My Buddy, the torch has been passed to Tim since he was the first of the kids to wed.
Right after Benjamin’s Birthday party I went to the car and got a gift out of the trunk for Tim, I made a big presentation stating Family Tradition and how something sacred was being passed to Tim to protect and pass down to his first child that married.
Tim seemed to swell with pride, I actually saw pride in his eyes imagining holding onto something so sacred as a Family heirloom to pass down to his children.
When he opened the bag I actually had to hold onto him to keep him from falling out of his chair.
The look of
shock pride on his face while I made the actual presentation told me that holding out this long to pass My Buddy along was sure worth it.
Now isn’t he cute with his new Doll.
Now that wasn’t nice was it?
