Lol! I cannot believe that I am laughing, as it was definitely not funny yesterday, but today we are all laughing.
My guy came up to talk with my dad yesterday. The whole family went out to our upper pasture for some target practice with some new guns. My dad and guy had some great bonding time. After my mom had shot her 3rd gun, we noticed smoke coming from the woods on the top of the hill, in our pasture. My guy ran as fast as he could to try to put out the brush fire, dad followed, I called 911, and Mom went to help my dad and guy. I brought the firetrucks up, and we got the fire out. No one was hurt, and we live in the boonies, so no houses or anything were hurt.
Anyway, after the fire was out, dad looked at me and said “Watch this! ***reaching out to shake my SO’s hand*** Yes, you can marry my daughter, and I’d be proud to call you son.” Lol! I found out later than when they were trying to put out the fire my guy was saying to dad “It wasn’t supposed to happen this way! I had a very important question to ask you, but now, there’s no way you’ll ever let me marry her. This is all my fault, I’m gonna get sued, I’m gonna have to pay the fire dept, my grandpa is gonna kill me. and you’ll never let me marry her now. It was all supposed to be different!” Lol! I’m not laughing at him, I just means a lot to me that in the midst of all that, he was soooo worried about getting dad’s blessing to marry me.
the fire was not his fault, and we finally convinced him of that. Our fire dept is all volunteer, and don’t require payments (though they will be getting a nice donation from the family), and the fire was all on our property (so there is no danger of a lawsuit). AAAND, My dad gave us his blessing. 🙂 LOL it was a very eventful day yesterday!
