Sincerely 'Fro Me To You - The Husband Edition

Kristen @ We Are That Family leads this Blog Carnival every Thursday.

This week, I've decided to go a different route for Sincerely 'Fro and do a husband edition. Mostly because I came across these hilarious (and adorable) photos of his childhood and a little because I'm kissing his ass so he'll let me paint the dining room eggplant.

Danny was born with a different name; one I won't divulge here. (Kissing ass, remember?) However, even at less than a year old he was a stud. It reminds me why I want to carry a million of his babies.

When Danny and I were looking through these pictures together, he was excited to discover that he had a belly even at under 2 years old. "I'm not fat - I'm just deformed!" he shrieked with glee.

This is Boots The Siamese Cat - in all capitals - he's a Brown Family icon. Legend has it he used to crawl into Danny's crib and groom him. Want to know a secret? To this day, whenever Danny gets to thinking about Boots, he still cries a little.

It's nice to know that even back then, he enjoyed a nice breeze - if you know what I mean. And I think you do.

The house he grew up in during the late 60's & entire 70's was located in Carnarsie, Brooklyn. Which explains why I'm pretty sure this TV fell off the back of the truck.

Notice the ashtray in the back? DCF was a long ways away back then.

I wonder if he had a coat on under the costume? Otherwise, babe...? I think you were just fat.

This is my very favorite photo of my husband. This picture is going to be included with the living room re-decorating project. Although I'm in my right mind to believe that he threw this book to whoever the photographer shortly after the shutter closed.

The true beauty of this photo is the ring he's showcasing. His parents never wanted him to forget that he was raised in Mafia Country. He was ready to bust heads at 9 years old - if only he wasn't Jewish.

I think these pants are coming back in style.

Silly perverted child, that's a boy Indian, not a girl Indian.

He was kicking this kid's ass because his parents made him go to karate instead of letting him stay home to watch Happy Days.

Don't worry about all that hair hair, sweetie. In about 20 years, you're going to meet me and I'm going to fix you up right good.

oh, goodness, he was a stud baby! Very cute pictures!

Good luck on the eggplant paint. For what it's worth, I approve!

Tammy said...

Love all the photos and I hope you get to paint your room the color you want!

He was a cutie! Bet he still is. :)

I painted our kitchen fuschia in one house we owned. I loved it, but the realtor insisted we paint it when we moved. :) Good luck with the eggplant!

Oh, girl, you had us rolling with this. My hubby read it out loud! Very funny. Love the deformed comment!

Eggplant, huh? What color is that exactly? Is that just a fancy name for purple?

Auds at Barking Mad said...

What a darling kiddo! I had to laugh at the pic of him next to the Indian statue at Knotts Berry Farm (that IS KBF isn't it?) Because my little brother, who had to have been maybe 4 at the time, kept walking by and grabbing it's ass when we went twenty some-odd years ago!

Oh and that Superman Costume! Seriously you should take that and have it put on his next birthday cake. I did that with a photo of my twins, a couple of years ago and it was a total hoot!

Oh gosh - all of these comments are going to make Danny's already large head swell. Sheesh.
Thank you all.

Kristen @ We - yes, eggplant is a fancy name for purple. It's a shade of purple.

Auds - I think that Indian is from Walt Disney World.

Eggplant looks GREAT. My grandfather's kitchen is eggplant. And after THAT bit of information you may change your mind.

Girl, you have got a way with words. Love the way you write!

Hello Ladies! Thanks for the lovely comments! And yes. I like to think I am still that cute. At least thats what my mommy tells me! ;)

Love ya babe! NO EGGPLANT!!! I don't like eating it and I am pretty sure I will not like looking at it! WHITE!!!!!

Carol said...

I have to ask, does he still have as much hair? LOL!

OMG, the ASHTRAY!!! Do they even still make ashtrays?? My parents and grandparents used to smoke with me in the car, with the windows rolled up and me, not eve in a carseat. I remember sitting on my grammas lap, in the front seat of the car, while she puffed away like The Little Engine That Could,windows rolled up 'cause it was mid-winter. I don't know how I survived childhood....

I think Eggplant is a highly appropriate color for a dining room. Eggplant is a food, you eat food in the dining room hence it will enhance your food eating experence to be eating food in a food colored room, yes?

Funny I didn't know DB was a Jew too! Although he is one of the rare ones that remembers the Midas Muffler blowing up in Dania when I was a kid and was ...well older than me! hahahahha
