The Woman's Heart

We loved Riley and Star's comment yesterday about dad's Not Enough Feet posting:

"OMD! Is he related to I-melted Marcos?
A woman's heart huh? Well it could be a lot worse if you get my drift? So be happy it's just shoes!"

HA - Just too many shoes, you say?
This is dad's collection of Carhartt jeans! He has them in every single color that was ever invented and his favorite color is the tan ones! So he has 25 pair of tan so he doesn't run out - EVER!

He has more jeans than will fit in his cupboard, which is HUGE!
Mom has no clue where to put them all so she goes into our attic room - the same one we get groomed in - and she keeps stacking them! One day she won't be able to reach the top of the stack and she'll need a 12 foot ladder!Some other day, we will have to show you dad's collection of Indian motorcycle jackets! It would make any Indian motorcycle rider just drool!
And then there's the collection of the Indian motorcycles themselves!
The list goes on and on!
Dad's woman donor must have been one heck of a shopper!

Another request came in. That's mom and dad and our sissy, Melissa and hubby, Jim.
Pay no attention to the words in the center of the photo. The photographer, at long last, finished with the wedding photos and Melissa and her hubby are going through oodles of pictures to choose just the very best for their wedding album!
BTW, we don't have any nieces or nephews yet. Aunt Maggie and Uncle Mitch!
Hey, that sounds kinda nice! We like that!
So until next time.................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Weeeee now that's proof that your dad is a shopaholic! heehee!!! And you're saying there's even more. So cool!

Perhaps you guys should hang out with your dad when he goes shopping.

Mango said...

So many jeans! I bet you hardly ever have to do laundry, or does he just wear 2-3 of them over and over. Poor dad. It isn't easy having a shopping affliction. What next? 597 work shirts? Hehehe.


Penny and Patches said...

Hahahahahahaha! One thing for sure...since they are Carhardts, they will never wear out!

you call it a cupboard too! i get laughed at around here-- saying this isn't Harry Potter! geeshers..pullease! umm.. your header pic - Mitch you've got the best googlies..but don't they feed you?? i mean eating a leash.. yuck.


Matilda said...

Hi Maggie and Mitch!
Wow so many jeans! Actually I have a pair of jeans... dog jeans!
I will show you next time!
Have a great weekend!

Gus said...

My muzzer says your dad is far more handsome than the groom.


The OP Pack said...

Wow, that is amazing!!! Our Dad has lots of "stuff" too but most of it just needs to be tossed. He hates to part with anything even if he doesn't wear it. We think we need to learn more about your Mom's wardrobe, but maybe she is more into the kitchen stuff.

Have a great weekend.

Lovely family in the wedding photo. Your Daddy's jeans collection is larger than our Mommy's and in more colors. She wants to get some Carhartts - her's wear out too quick.
Hugs, Miley and Mariah

BRUTUS said...

Wow, your dad is quite the amazing guy!! So he has MORE than enough pairs of jeans to wear one with each pair of clogs?? Hey, he could wear two pairs at a time in case he got a hole in one (mom says that is a golf joke too...). Yes, I agree with Mango; now you must show us what dad wears on his upper half too!

Persephone and Buster said...

guess it's time to build another building to put the jean and shoe collection in! as for the shopaholic...our dad is definitely one... he can't go into a store w/o coming out with "stuff" -- up and above the reason he first went in the store for. lots of times it's toys for us, so we're not complaining. tell your mom... never ever let your dad loose in cabellas...ever. danger danger will robinson....
on that note we're off to run in the snow!!! finally a little bit o'white stuff for us blue dogs.
theBUSTER, Ms.Blue & Persephone


Well, our Darlings,

We hate to tell you this, but an Intervention is greatly needed here!

We think you and your mommy need to a have a heart to heart talk with your daddy.

Meet with him in his closet and make him face his up to his addiction, then send him to CA!

No, not California, silly doggies, but Clothes Anonymous and for two years! That ought to cure him!

You don't have to thank us, we are more then happy to help!

Luv, your pals,
Riley and Star.

Oooh! You caught Mom's attention with the Indian motorcycle collection - she doesn't need to see the jackets, but is very interested in the bikes! But those pants? Um. He might just have a teensy bit of a problem. I'm just saying...

*kissey face*

McGillicutty said...

Oh my! Me thinks you guys have more than me Mom and Dad (but you have 26 years of marriage on them too). Your Mom and Dad look too young to be married 37 years!

We just love keeping up with you guys! Me furmom says that she would like to have a girls night soon, and Maggie is invited. Mitch, we'll have a pawker game and hit some pubs or something.

Irish Love,

Sue said...

I love it!! Next time Rob gets on my case about my collections, I'll show him this blog.

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

OMD your Dad has SSSooooo many Carhart pants. We thought our daddy had so many jeans, but yours has ours WAyyy beat!! For sure it must be his wonderful new heart that plugged in the fashionista in him. We've heard of non-athletes becoming super sportsman after the miracle of a Xplant...never heard of this though.Well, he'll never get caught with his Carharts down!BOL!!
Smooches from pooches,

We can't let our dad see this post about the Indian motorcycle jackets.Mommy is trying to get him to sell his little Vino(cycle) thingy and it might give him ideas. His family all used to ride Indians when he was young.

Ina in Alaska said...

My my your brother-in-law is tall, Maggie & Mitch! And I believe your dad needs a special condo for all his fancy clothes and shoes!! Wow! But everything looks nice and neat. Does your Mom operate an Indian chopper of her own? xoxo

Sherry said...

I want that clothes cupboard--without the jeans so that I could fill it with dog stuff!

Baby Rocket Dog and Hootie said...

Oooo almost forgot to mention how adorable your family wedding photo is. What a handsome group you all are!!

The Army of Four said...

What a beautiful photo!
Our mom is picturing herself cutting up all of those jeans and making quilts out of them. Mom's kind of singularly focused.
Play bows,

Twinkietinydog said...

You do realize it's not kosher to pressure the married couple just because you want to become aunties and uncles, right? BOL
As for the dad-jeans, I noticed a lot of them would look great on you two. Tan on you...styling!

Faya said...

Hiiii ! Véronique is very happy ! She thought she was the only one with almost 40 jeans !!!
Kisses, Faya

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Wow Dad really does have a lot of jeans.. Our Dad would love to see the Indian Motorcycles.. Maybe it is just a Dad thing?
Great Wedding picture.. We can tell you are all so proud... You probably shouldn't push the kid thing. We are sure you can wait awhile before you have to endure the ear pull, tail pulling, fur pulling.... biped..

Big Sloppy Kisses
Gus, Louie and Callie

Eric said...

Ooo haaa Daddy square has a billion pairs of jeans too!! Honestly. Do you think they could somehow be related?? I might have to sneak some photo's as well as the counting!

Love the family wedding shot. Your BIL could help your Mom when the jean pile gets too high, he won't need the ladder!

Wiry loves Eric xxx

Remington said...

Love you lots, Bambi & Fern

Sonic said...

My Momma forces my Pops to throw out all his cruddy old t-shirts and stuff, to make space for her new clothes.

But what I want to know is... why not just give them to me? I love smelly old clothes!



I'm at a loss for words... 64 danskos, tons of carhartts,, motorcycle jackets... wow I'm surprised you only have M and M and now a big pack of dales.

Very lovely wedding foto. You all look good but I wanna see the feet. Was dad wearing his danskos?

Lorenza said...

I was still thinking about all the shoes your Dad has and... ta-da! He has millions of jeans too!
Kisses and hugs

Hollie and Janie said...

I cannot believe your dad has so many pairs of jeans!! Your parents are so pretty!! What a great picture!! Tell them to show their faces more often, please! You know my mama loves having her mug on my blog!

Anonymous said...

First, your dad has lots and lots of pants! Between you and me, I think pants are kinda stupid. Who needs 'em? But humans seem to be all aghast at the thought of going without. They are Most Mysterious to me sometimes.

And I LUVS the picture of your family! They are Most Beautiful!

Wiggles & Wags,

Oskar said...

That's a lot of pants!!!

Jan Mader said...

That's a pretty amazing collection of jeans. We are totally impressed!

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Wow, Maggie and Mitch I think I'm the only "man" who owns a huge inventory of wardrobe thanks to my mom's clearance sale hunting! Now your Daddy is the real champion!
I bow to your Dad, your Daddy has great taste!
Maggie and Mitch, I'm bad but I'm back!
I miss you so much, I want to promise that I visit your blog at least once a week and blog more frequently.
I'll come back to see you soon.
(You don't notice that I have been out a long while, do you? choking back tears! sob sob!
Love ya lots!

Inky and Molly said...

Your dad is a horder! We've heard about them...

Sam said...

Mom always teases my dad about having a thing for shoes because he definately has more than Mom!

We think your Dad is the "chothes horse" in your family.
