Dinner out with Bossy’s dad, just the two of them.
Last night Bossy and her father had such an occasion, which is rare considering their easy proximity. The extended family is swell and all that, but Bossy prefers one-on-one time with her dad so they can finish sentences and retell old stories and catch up on what’s new and giggle and share an order of warm apple-filled puff pastry.

Hey Bossy, you got your cheekbones from your dad. I never noticed that you got your looks from him before. (I think the beard through me off) Anyway, lucky you. Lucky dad. What a nice night out.
Eric Hegwer saysMarch 27, 2009 at 8:01 am
Awwww – that’s nice.
Ms. T. saysMarch 27, 2009 at 8:20 am
Awesome. Very jealous, but in a pleasant way. Those adult beverages look delicious.
GreatAunt saysMarch 27, 2009 at 8:36 am
Dads are the greatest people! I’m glad Bossy is able to enjoy time with hers. Wish I could do the same with mine. ;(
Lauren saysMarch 27, 2009 at 8:39 am
Your dad looks like a cuddly sailor.
Unemployed Susan saysMarch 27, 2009 at 8:50 am
Cuddly sailor, yes. But, what sort of a beverage comes in orange with olives?
Maggie Garcia saysMarch 27, 2009 at 8:51 am
Growing up, my dad used to surprise check me out of school and take me to lunch at our absolute favorite Mexican place in the world. Then we’d eat hot peppers until one of us cried uncle. It was usually me. I love this post. I think it melted the frigid spot where my heart would be.
Audubon Ron saysMarch 27, 2009 at 8:57 am
I like Bossy’s dad. Bossy’s dad likes martinis.
Heide saysMarch 27, 2009 at 9:04 am
Bossy’s dad looks like a mensh. Glad you got a chance to hang with him.
JK saysMarch 27, 2009 at 9:21 am
Um…I hate when I mispell in the morning. I meant to type “threw me off” not “through me off.” Hanging my head and regretting the money I spent on a Communications degree. I am going to go drink an orange Kefir martini w/ extra olives.
carson saysMarch 27, 2009 at 9:29 am
Wow, was your dad’s martini shaken at the table?? I never knew they did that. Need to get out more…
jen saysMarch 27, 2009 at 9:57 am
I knew before I even read the first word that this was Bossy’s Dad. What a great-looking man! He looks nice, too. 🙂
Jenn @ Juggling Life saysMarch 27, 2009 at 10:01 am
Unfortunately such a dinner would be my worst nightmare, but I’m glad you enjoyed your evening.
elizabeth saysMarch 27, 2009 at 10:47 am
Your dad has great hair.
Camille saysMarch 27, 2009 at 11:02 am
What is it with all the men in BOSSY’S life? How are they all so distinguished-looking? All of them! Husband, brother, father, probably even son someday. BOSSY must be a magnet for sophistication.
Ms. Cranky Pants saysMarch 27, 2009 at 11:15 am
“warm apple-filled puff pastry” must be code for delicious cocktails. Must remember to use that one, wink wink nudge nudge.
Kelly at The Glass Dragonfly saysMarch 27, 2009 at 11:16 am
Sounds like a lovely evening.
Jamie saysMarch 27, 2009 at 11:20 am
Bossy’s dad looks gruff and adorable in all the right ways. Glad you two had time to catch up.
POD saysMarch 27, 2009 at 11:26 am
You are so lucky to still have him alive. I know you know that.
Scottsdale Girl saysMarch 27, 2009 at 11:40 am
Sweet cracker sandwich, I suddenly want a filthy martini with a bloody mary chaser. All those green olives! woo!
Scottsdale Girl saysMarch 27, 2009 at 11:43 am
Also? I am waiting for my own dad to return from Kuwait next month so he can take me for sushi and martinis. So much fun.
foolery saysMarch 27, 2009 at 12:15 pm
I think I would have liked to have your dad as my doctor. As long as that didn’t mean I was battling some health problem.
He just has a kindly doctor face, quite similar to a kindly dad face.
Lesley saysMarch 27, 2009 at 12:25 pm
Once again, Bossy’s blog has given me a case of the warm fuzzies.
Cactus Petunia saysMarch 27, 2009 at 12:45 pm
Bossy just made my day with a dad fix. Thanks!
gary rith saysMarch 27, 2009 at 12:49 pm
I’d say the 2 of you look alike!
Grandma J saysMarch 27, 2009 at 1:00 pm
Bossy, that is such a wonderful date you had with your Dad. I would love to be there to hear your conversation. I’m sure it was serious, yet funny, with lots of love sprinkled throughout.
I think of your Dad, and pray for his wellness….he looks great! Dads, a special gift from God!

Half Assed Kitchen saysMarch 27, 2009 at 3:53 pm
Oh, Bossy’s dad. It’s nice to see him on your blog.
Auntie Lenie saysMarch 27, 2009 at 5:08 pm
I can see where your gin drinking genes come from, but what the )(#*% were you drinking?
Bush Babe of Granite Glen saysMarch 27, 2009 at 5:19 pm
Oh that man had divine cheekbones and a certain twinkle in his eyes… I see Bossy in them.
I love spending time with my Dad – I have even been known to get him to a restaurant every so often (so long as it sells steak!). But martinis… his massive mitt would snap the stem of that glass first sip. Never mind. Scotch and dry works just as well.
Thanks for this sweet glimpse into your world, Bossy.
Meg saysMarch 27, 2009 at 6:31 pm
This post warms my heart, having recently lost my Dad. And darn it Bossy, that looks like a mighty fine spicy Bloody Mary you are imbibing. Fantastic company and dinner.
Robynn's Ravings saysMarch 27, 2009 at 7:01 pm
I wish I had ever had a good dad! Waaaaaaaaaahhhhhhh!
Jodi Anderson :: so NOT cool saysMarch 27, 2009 at 11:25 pm
I hope it’s not weird to say that I think your dad is stunning in a captivating way. Cool, Bossy.
Grandma J saysMarch 28, 2009 at 12:01 am
What are the chances of Bossy shaking her family tree on her father’s side? I’m never satisfied, am I?
junebug saysMarch 28, 2009 at 12:48 pm
Yea for dads! 😀
biddy saysMarch 28, 2009 at 4:46 pm
awww he is just adorable! we have really great daddies, don’t we??
Suzanne saysMarch 29, 2009 at 8:11 pm
I agree with Lauren, He does look like a cuddly sailor. My dad was a cuddly sailor… miss him alot.
Janet saysMarch 29, 2009 at 8:54 pm
Minus the beard, you look amazingly like your dad.
blog princess g saysMarch 30, 2009 at 5:20 pm
What a lovely dad! You’re both very lucky. 🙂
