I am secretly posting from Gram's house...but I had to tell you that Dad is out of his face surgery and Mom said he kind of looks like THIS:

WOWza. Mom said he is sleeping and doing fine and that we should be able to come home tonight or tomorrow morning.

Meanwhile...this is how it looks at Gram's

Joey and Tanner wait for the guests
I am always keeping watch and Doofus is just hanging out getting fatter!!!

Thanks for all the good thoughts for my Dad!

Hey Joe, glad your dad is resting up and getting well. As for the cheeks, I heard girls dig big cheeks!!

Since your dad will have to each mush for the next few days, I think you & Tanner should get to eat his dinner!

Hey Joey, I am glad your Dad's opawration went well. Chipmunks are cute! Mom says she remembers those Alvin n the Chipmunks cartoon when she was a kid.
PS : I wish I could send you those hearts underpants but the only problem is, it doesn't belong to me. LOL!

Joey: Milk the attention at Gram's for all you are worth. When you get home, your dad will still be gettin lots of attention from your Mom, and you might get jealous. No bitey face, OK

Hi, Joe.
Glad your dad's surgery went well! I hope he is resting a lot! And I really hope he doesn't look like that chipmunk!

Oh my dog!!! Is that a photo of Dean Martin in the background? I love your gram!!!!!!!!!

I hope your dad is doing well. My mom had her wisdom removed last summer and her dentist gave her a silly amount of mega pain killers. She thinks she could start a small business, but she also thinks that would be just sort of not cool.

I'm sending happy shrinking cheek thoughts to your pa!

Gram's looks very relaxing. But I wouldn't want another animal-- especially one that looks like that-- in the house. Hope your Dad's real face comes back.

Your dad needs to start preparing his lawsuit if he's looking like that squirrel. Glad to hear he's doing well, though!

I love that photo of Deano on the wall. Do your grandma & grandpa listen to Dean, Frank, Sammy and the rest of the Brat Pack?

Hope you get home soon, man!

Goober love,

Food is blocked in squirrel's mouth.
It is felt that joe wants to obtain happiness that eats food sitting on a sofa.

Please spend a wonderful weekend.

Blogger Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

oh dog, she never could tell her left from her right, she meant to ask about the picture on the right of you! Not the darn left.

Silly hooooman! And she still has her wisdom teeth, there is no hope for her wiseness!

Blogger Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

ooh now she thinks the squirrel (aka your Dad) is a chipmunk, well, we dont get those chipmunk guys here in Scotland,

Whatever, your Dad looks pretty serious without those darn wise teeth.

Ooh, Mom says her wisdom tooth surgery gave her a huge chipmunk face too! But later it returned to her normal chipmunk face (hee hee!) We hope your dad feels better soon.
