A birthday Post

This is Everette. This is how Everette looks 90% of the time. He is a very serious fella. Very smart, genius actually (in my opinion). Very straight laced. He likes to wear collared shirts and asks for file cabinets for his 13th birtday. He does make jokes, sometimes, but you have to really know him to know they are jokes.

Most of the time you take a picture of Everette this is how he looks, or above. A handsome guy, really. Just not the first to flash you a grin.
Unless he is around something he loves....
He is a bit of a geek really. But I happen to think geeks are super sexy. And I happen to love this geek very much. I know for a fact that I drive him batty, I have even been known to drive him to drink. There are times when he drives me batty too.
There are times when we both drive each other batty at the same time. But at the end of the day, if someone is going to drive you batty, he is it for me! I have known him for eight or so years. He fathered my child. I am continually amazed at the things he knows. Seriously you can ask him anything. He could be his own Cha-Cha service. If you don't mind your facts peppered with a dose of cynicism and blunt honesty.
He is also very handy...

Like I said, he is very straightlaced and rarely cuts loose. Unless he is really enjoying himself.
Like swimming with dolphins...

Or water in general... Or being mischievous and playing. He LOVES to play. He is a man of action. Can I emphasize how smart he is? For instance he could have gotten rid of this bothersome hyperlink on this text, but if I asked him, he would have known what I was doing. SO I guess I will just have to live with it.
Sometimes he will even go with me and let me take awkward artsy photos of him. He hates having his picture taken, but he loves me.

He will smile in a picture if he is holding his son (the afore mentioned love-child). He loves that kid. He has reached new depths of love and poured forth fountains of patients and understanding. As well as a greatly needed bull-headed stubborness.

Sometimes, when the planets align I can catch him on camera in those rare occasions when he really cuts loose.

Like when he shaves off his beard in phases, and lingers on the hitler stache, just because he knows it gives me the willies.
Or when he insistes on showing me whatever happens to be in his mouth at the moment.

But as great as all of these smiling pictures are, my favorites are these. Ever. My most favorite pictures of Everette in the whole wolrd are these...
And today is his birthday!
Happy Birthday! I love Sheep!

What a fantastic post! Does he read your blog? (My husband does not.)

I'm with you. Those photos at the end are the greatest!

By the way, I hope you know I meant that my husband doesn't read MY blog. Not yours. Though I'm pretty sure he never reads any blogs, ever. :)

Everette said...

Yes, I read her blog.
