Happy Birthday Dear Hubby!!!!

Today my Sweetie turns 52. He doesn't act like it. Now, wait....that's meant as a complement! Gary is so active he makes me look like a big banana slug. (which are fascinating creatures in their own right, just slow....) The above pic says it all----the consummate Ramones fan he is! A staunch supporter of change and seeing the country get better for all. Wicked quick sense of humor! Ornery as all get out, especially when he has worked too long...... Years ago, there was a local wrestling group, the LWF---they referred to it as *professional* wrestling, I always thought it was humorous mass bedlam!---and he did announcing and was a *manager*. I was, well, the manager's WHATEVER! That's Johnny and Ramona DeVille above. He was the "Cadillac of Wrestling Managers", culling the best wrestlers into Team Deville! We had a blast! Words truly do not describe........ :-) .......truly!!!!

The good supportive husband at one of my gallery shows....they had great wine at this one! He stayed a while, then went out in search of a record store, to add to his collection of vinyl and cd's. And I might add, that collection is large and covers much music, as he was a DJ for many years. Any musical trivia or tidbit you want to know? Ask DH!!!

Outrunning the young kids in the annual fitness test. No joke. Only one guy who runs marathons beat him. I'm not sure how I CAUGHT him! Go Sweetie Go!!!!! (the military, being what it is, has the people run outside in November in this area.....okay, no logic in that one.....thus, the layers and layers of clothing)

This was from the one and ONLY outdoor show I will ever do as I had ants in my underwear biting me. Hubby provided comic relief for the longest, most miserable day in my life......
There he was, *commenting*, being laid back and cool......and eventually asking, "Is it over yet?"
Happy Birthday my Dear!!!! May you have many more; may there be more adventures down the road and remember "Someone could get HURT with that bat!!!!" (wrestling 'in joke'....)

Love.....
Anne

I hope he has a wonderful day. You, too! xox Pam

yoborobo said...

PS Make that "A handsome young 52!" Need more coffee.

Linda Moran said...

Great photos! Happy Birthday Mr. Anne!! The wrestling one of the two of you is a hoot! What a great idea!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Pam,

We ALL need more coffee!!! I'm in a complete stupor this morning....even running out for pix in the PJs didn't get me awake! COLD, not awake. ;)
am forwarding all these to DH....he's going to kill me! LOL!!!!

XXOO!!!
Anne

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Linda---

Oh we had so much fun doing that---it worked on a budget of zero, one of the guys almost got decapitated putting the boards into the ring (with us standing there dying laughing.....).
It is long gone but those were good times!!! (and I was soooooo thin! WAH!)
What a hoot it was.... :)

XXOO!!
Anne

audrey said...

Oh, by the way, I always wondered where that saying "You've got ants in your pants" came from. ......Now I know!!!
ha ha ha ha ha
(:

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Audrey!

Let me tell you, not just PANTS, BRA too. It was horrid....never ever again! I am a pampered studio girl! That's what galleries, Etsy, and other venues are for.
If I wanted to sit in a tent and be bitten by bugs I'd go camping!
Will pass the greetings on to Hubs!!!

XXOO!!
Anne

Magpie's Mumblings said...

Happy birthday to your DH, who looks as if he's the perfect partner for you...good looking and obviously has a sense of humour (both excellent attributes).
As for ants in pants OR bras - just one more reason why I have NEVER camped and never will!! Bugs belong outside, not on my body, thank you ever so much.

Ces said...

Happy birthday to the big guy! OMG! You are a very lovely good looking couple. Oh Anne, you are so attractive! Have a wonderful day!.

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey MA!

Yes, I used to sleep under the stars when I was VERY young and VERY foolish.....would just camp on the ground in the back yard so I could see the stars at will and watch the sun come up.
Now I much-much-MUCH prefer the comforts of the indoors and BED! LOL!
Yep, he's a keeper!!! ;)

XXOO!!!
Anne

Marilyn said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to HUBBY!!

Marilyn

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hi Ces!

Yes, the two of us were made for each other....we are alike in many ways and opposite in others! The poor man deserves a medal for putting up with me!!!!

XXOO!!!
Anne

Deborah said...

Happy Birthday Gary!!! Oh Anne, LoVe the wrestling photo of you two! Look at those legs girl!!! My hubby is a Gary too, but older at 58. Actually, I'm older than your DH too. Did I just say that out loud??? What is in my water bottle? Truth serum? Gotta run before I spill more secrets.
**kisskiss** Deb

Julie ZS said...

Happy Happy Birthday Gary! Hope you're getting lots of music gifts today.
Wishing you a great year ahead keeping Anne in line and on track (good luck with that one!).

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey deb,

It's not water...it's alcohol!!! LOL! The *real* truth serum.... :)
Ah yes, the legs...they don't look like that anymore. WAH! In fact, other than the red lipstick, nothing looks like that pic anymore! HA!

XXOO!!
Anne

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Julie....alas......you know me too well! >:) SNARF!!!
He's behaving; probably has a muzzle and short leash on hand for me after the surgery....pooey.

XXOO!!!
Anne

P.S. those red orange slugs in Italy---I think they were looked for and used like escargot, if I remember correctly. a snail without a shell?

Anna Rosa Designs said...

Hi Anne,
What a lovely post about your hubby. What an adventure he is taking you on!

Anne Huskey-Lockard said...

Hey Jan!

Ended up with sun after a gloomy day other than a quick moment of glorious sunrise.
Well, that's Indiana....
