You’ve seen his mug around here, and you’ve read a little bit about him here and there, but who is this stud known as Mr. B? Obviously, he’s a pretty awesome dude with
great taste lots of patience since he’s signed up to spend the rest of forever with me, and as kick ass as I am, I can be a bit of a handful. You know what he wants to be when he grows up, that he’s my cowboy, and that he’s the reason I moved to the sticks, but here are five more facts about the fabulous Mr. B:
1.) Animals are fascinated by him. He’s a bit of a horse whisperer, but he’s also got a touch of Snow White in him. Animals just gravitate toward him, watch him in wonder, and respond so well to him. It’s amazing to witness.
2.) He can slalom ski. (That’s water skiing with only one ski.) He only does it about once a year, mostly just to prove that he can still do it. Plus, I’m usually the one driving the boat, so I haven’t gotten a picture of it yet. Here’s one of him rocking out on a wakeboard instead:
3.) He drinks chick beer. Proudly. He loves just about anything that’s sugary sweet, so it’s really no shock that he loves wine coolers. They are too sweet for me, but by all means, do your thing babe.
4.) He likes to play in the dirt. He will never pass up an opportunity to dig something up, level something off or bury something, as long as he gets to do it with heavy equipment. For instance, he jumped on the chance to dig this canal across our yard when a pipe needed buried. (We had a spring creating a nice swamp pond in our front yard. Mr. B and his excavator to the rescue!) Unfortunately, his love of playing in the dirt does not extend to helping me pull weeds or any of “that gardening crap”.
5.) He’s a really great teacher. He doesn’t think he is, but he’s wrong. I’ve learned so much from him. He taught me everything I know about boating, water sports, horses, cows, farming, driving a tractor and even how to mow the lawn (I’d never cut grass in my life before moving here). The list goes on and on, and I learn new things from him every day. Which is pretty cool, because I love learning new things.
All in all, he’s a pretty swell guy. I think I’ll keep him. (Even if it is like pulling teeth to get him to smile in photos.)
