The Dude, The Husband -- March, March, March

My Alphabe Thursday theme -- The Dude, The Husband

Once upon a time, the Husband was part of the marching band in both high school and college. He played the trombone. He totally loved the experience from what I can tell. And, he still has his marching skills. Sometimes when we go walking, he marches ahead of me, turns and marches back, and when we meet, he turns quickly face forward. I have to say, his precision makes me swoon inside.

Last year, we walked over to the hardware store to purchase a couple of pieces of long lumber to shore up the back fence.  The husband marched them most of the way home. Check out his style. Can you just see him in a marching band playing the trombone once upon a time?


Today is the letter M at Jenny Matlock's Alphabe Thursday. Come check out other M posts with me by clicking here.

  1. Susie,

    The Husband posts always make me smile.

    Is that the road where you live, in the photo? It's so different to ours. We are lucky to have tarmac. (I remember when our road was a dirt road so I suppose we are fortunate the council considered us important enough to give us proper tarmac.) We don't have curbs or footpaths. It's just as well not much traffic comes down our road because we tend to walk right down the middle of it. Anyway, your place looks very attractive!

    1. Thanks, Sue. We live a couple blocks from here. Our street looks similar. Our neighborhood used to be a chicken farm and walnut orchard. There's not too much traffic on the side streets (one of which we're walking), which is good because the Husband and I tend to walk in the streets.

  4. Do you play marching music when he walks:) All men look so manly when they carry lumber around. When my hubby does this it makes me giddy. I know, weird but I did grow up on a sawmill

    1. Hmmm, next time, I'll hum him William Tell or something. That would be fun. I'm glad I'm not the only one that gets giddy that way. I pretty much have the vapors when I watch the Husband do a pull up. lol

  10. I love this post! I admire anyone who marched in the band and played musical instruments. I always enjoy going to sporting events where these fined tuned folks are. Thanks for sharing a cool dude with us, your hubby.
