My Father's Day Haul

Just being with my child would be adequate but no, little Miss LFG rolled in with Father’s Day loot that topped even the Christmas gift chart. The card would have been enough actually…at what point will these little handwritten contrivances stop being so cute?
I think LFG gets as much of a kick out of the staging—preamble—setup for surprising people with gifts as I do. We have J.Mclaughlin, Lilly, Tiffany and Paul Stuart awaiting me…in honor of whatever it is that I do to deserve such things. Look at those little feet in the lower right corner...shut up.
LFG and her mom saw to it that my long awaited Tiffany silver belt buckle will be a reality...in another week...after the engraving. Thanks little monkey.
Ahhhh...Paul Stuart Ghillies...in suede...how did my little princess know? These are worthy of their own post...stay tuned.
And she even had the good sense to have them done up with Dainite soles. This is a casual shoe and I'm on my feet a lot when working. I dance, I sing...I'm a Jester.
J. McLaughlin silk pocket square. Too small for a do-rag...I tried it already.
And check out my new GTH shorts...Lilly Pulitzer embroidered gator togs. Snappy Pimp Pants.
Wont be going commando in these though. Sad but true...just the alloverish feeling of nervousness...having croc teeth this close to wankertown...will preclude such simple pleasures.

Onward...in oppressive Southern Humidity and Heat.

ADG and LFG

Oh and P.S. .... I stole this picture from Lisa Golightly...replace that little girl with a four year old me. Replace that lady's purse with a larger Naugahyde satchel and there you have it...my mama escorting me to the top of Ghost Town in the Sky!

Congrats on the slide buckle! I've had the exact same one from Tiffany since the day before my wedding 18 years ago and wear it daily.

Nice FD haul...and those little toes make me laugh and think of my own CHW.

P.S. Great haul!

Having croc teeth this close to Wankertown?!

Thanks! Now I have egg salad all over my keyboard.

Those Paul Stuarts are the Byron model, correct? I have them in chestnut - didn't know they were / are made in suede. I'll have to check them out...

hmm...I would think at some point in your life the note would become more important than the gifts. After all, you can always purchase the material goods, but one day she'll stop writing you the notes. But then, that's my overly sentimental way of looking at things.

and really...TMI on the wankertown. But I forgive you because it is beyond africa hot in the south these days......

Suburban Princess said...

Is there anything better than seeing a little blue box? Gift-wise that is!

I cant wait to see what monstrosity of a shirt you wear with your new shorts :O)

James said...

Those cards never stop being cute,and neither will she. You do realize if you had purchased that wanker coat when you had the opportunity it could have done double duty as a 'gator guard.

Bill said...

I received the Tiffany engine turned buckle for Fathers' Day last year. Great buckle, and one I cherish all the more. Enjoy in good health.

Loving those gator shorts ... clearly you raised a very tasteful and generous child ! The darling drawings however, trumps everything ! Ok, whenever I hear the word "naugahyde" I think of the black couch in the "rec room" where we always watched Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom every Sunday night.

LPC said...

Damn! That's some serious loot! Good for you LFG. Good for you. And even now that I get gold-rimmed thank notes from my once wee one, still cute. Just surrender now. Why fight the sickness of child adoration? Why bother?

Patsy said...

Excellent gifts befitting the Mayor of Wankertown.

For the young lady who asked for the Father's Day gift suggestions, the scratch tickets we sent my Dad yielded a Grant, a Hamilton and a Washington.....

L-O-V-E those gator shorts - but you knew I would. And I love LFG's envelope and card - I remember making flowers that looked just like hers.

heavy tweed jacket said...

Very cool Ghillies, but I think the card and envelope are the best.

Young Fogey said...

The note is the best, but thems is some fine shoes.

How did such a tasteful buckle make its way into your house? Aren't you afraid it'll die of loneliness?

The shorts? Some people are going to wonder if you didn't forget to put on your pants over those things. Oh, and the pimps' union rejected those shorts as being "too gaudy" for their image.

ADG said...

Young Fogey...you shoulda seen where LFG and I spent most of the day today. The pimp clothes are gonna make you and everybody else hurl. I'll wear the buckle bossman. Don't worry.

HeavyTweed...indeed...on both counts.

LimeGreenGal...the shorts are great. The shoes are better.

Patsy...are you telling the truth?

LPC...I've long since surrendered...on virtually every front that I remotely pretended to hold some level of resistance.

LisaGo...I can see Marlin Perkins wrestling that anaconda right now. Sunday nights were a mixed bag for me even though some of the TV was good. The cloud of "back to school on Monday" always tainted ever so slightly all Sunday night programming...even when Bonanza was on Sunday nights.

Bill...thanks.

AnonPaulStuart...yes they are the Byron but you won't find them in the store and you won't find them with a Dainite sole. LFG had them special ordered for me.

James...thanks. But...I think the crock teeth would go right through the Harris Tweed Wanker Coat material.

SuburbanPrincess...you wait till you see the shirt I got today!

SouthernProle...duly noted on all fronts. I rarely mention wankertown.

CDClaySalad...I've been thinking about egg salad all day. Gonna get my mama to make some tomorrow. Hope you got your keyboard clean.

RHW...thanks man.

ADG - Looking forward to seeing how you contrive to wear all your beautiful (and well-deserved) gifts together in one outfit - the ghillies and belted gator shorts togther with a jacket that best sets off the handsome pocket square - and of course the lycra thong you wear when you don't go commando...

Paul said...

I really dig those Chillies! or anything with tassles for that matter. Great haul buddy.

ADG said...

Paul...thanks man. I've still got that bad visual of you walking nekkid on the beach.

AnonEngFem...Are you making fun of me?

Preppy 101 said...

What a precious note. You know little girls forever love their daddies! And, How I enjoy seeing good taste instilled in our little ones! xoxo

Those ghillies are great but you're going to want to tweak them a bit ...

(Who needs tassels, anyway?)

Paul said...

Duuude - stop thinkin' about it!

Summer is a Verb said...

Wankertown gets me every time. You're Pedro por Hermes towel will be up in the morn. Along with the butt police...XXOO

ADG said...

Preppy 101...thanks!

AnonymouseDiceman...I kid you not...I've already got those dice.

Paul...I'm trying to man. It's a bad movie. Bad movie.

AllieVonPucci...Wankertown...lots of tickets have been written by the Wankertown Butt Police.
