Skabetty and her lover, Farmer John




When visiting our house, Skabetty is a needy woman. If she comes to the table alone, she sits forlornly, looking rather pitiful. But bring Farmer John to the table and the party instantly brightens. Skabetty comes to life and shares depth unimaginable before his arrival. Though my mother would say he just smells like sweaty feet, Skabetty says it's just not worth it without him. My girls say the exact same thing.

And I absolutely forbid ANYONE telling these girls that his name is PARM-E-SAN, not Farmer John, because I'm not yet ready to let go of these last few mispronunciations.

How cute! I love the pics and the mispronunciations :) Great love story too, although I generally agree with your mother ;)

My computer screen has melted from the intensity of the cute. Look at it! All in a puddle on the floor, with that weird smell of burnt plastic that you know you shouldn't probably like, but you kind of do.

Farmer John and Skabetty are invited to my table any time. And their French cousin Breaduardo.

With my frustration limit to the max with 17.50 per hour carpenters that leave ya to redo everything they have (Ha!) fixed and demolished everything I have done, this gave me a hard and badly needed belly laugh. Gotta love Farmer John and Skabetty. Have a great day! MIL

NO MONOGRAMS!!!!!

That is so, so sad.

Laura Grace would love it. She really doesn't seem to get why her name is on everything LOL

I LOVE THE PICTURES. And the mispronunciations are hilarious!

That's great! Some of our favorites over the years were "formorrow" and "lasterday" instead of "tomorrow" and "yesterday". Oh, and my son used to say "wipe" instead of "white"...that one was cute.

When Jennifer was little it was called pasketti. There was no farmer John in my house. That stuff is nasty. She used to read mazagines too.

Hey darlin', I love your blog, but I need you to put that sidebar widget in with the Hive Mind blog ring code so that those of us hopping through the ring can keep going onwards through it.

Too cute! I was hoping you'd let us in on who Farmer John is. I was scratching my head over that one, but now it all makes perfect sense!

Wow. Now that is cute!

Just so you know, Lily is still calling it Farmer John and I will never tell her any different. I always call it Farmer John now. Her brother will probably correct her and we'll lose this one but I absolutely refuse to allow anyone to correct "loosually" - Lily's form of "usually", especially since she didn't have her "L" sound until she was 4! Remember when her name was Wiwy and Logan's was Wogan? Anonymously Laura :)

How can something that smells so bad taste so good? Cute kiddos, love the Farmer John. Oh the lament when they learn correct speech...
