Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

Father of the Year Award

.

If you've already been here, please scroll down and read the NEW and VERY IMPORTANT information in RED at the bottom of this post.

Remember - - - you may vote as many times as you wish.

You may change your vote each time you vote.

YES pets may vote too.


In honor of Father's Day, which is just around the corner, I am hosting a "Father of the Year" competition right here on this little ole blog.

It's my competition, so I get to make up the rules.

The rules are:

1) There will be only two contestants, previously selected for their glowing fatherly attributes. (Sorry if your dad doesn't appear here - - - you'll just have to have your OWN contest.)

2) You may vote in the comments using the name under each photo.

3) You may vote as many times as you like.

4) You may appeal to friends and family members to vote and they too may vote as many times as they like.

5) May the most unconscious dad win.


"Diva Dad"

This is my own hubby, Big Fisherman (AKA Ole) (AKA Greg), and the father of my children. He sleeps through nearly all family gatherings, and is unconscious enough to be draped in his favorite pink boa and tierra without so much as batting an eye lash. Vote for him if you think he's "falling off the charts."


"Loser-Dork Dad"

(Read the SIGNS people, I'm not making this up nor making a judgment call!!!)

This is Leigh's hubby, "Big Daddy." (I got Leigh's permission to do this, though Big Daddy may feel strongly against it, I don't know, nor do I care.) Big Daddy ALSO sleeps through family affairs, and soundly enough to be annotated. Vote for him if you think he's "noteworthy." (Oh yes, pun very much intended.)

THIS JUST IN: Very important information to consider as you continue to vote: Loser-Dork Dad fell asleep sitting STRAIGHT UP in a computer chair - - - - now THAT has to count for SOMETHING!!!!

Hurry up and vote - - - voting will close when I say so, which will only be when I've milked this for all it's worth!!!

Diane said...

I know neither Dad, but Diva Dad definitely gets my vote!!!! Any man who can sleep through that HAS to be a GREAT DAD!!!!

Many hugs.........

Diane

skyesofblue said...

I do think Diva Dad should be the winner. I have some shots of my own from my very own husband who sleeps through family socials. Why did I think that my husband was the only man who did this !!!!

Betty Jo said...

ROTFLMBO!

Okay, this is really a hard choice to make. But, I think I have to vote for "Diva Dad" 'cause I love his pink boa! ♥

Kirby3131 said...

How funny! I thought I recognized Big Daddy, but appreciate you helping by naming him. :) It's sort of like when you see one of the staff of a restaurant you frequent at the grocery store. You know you KNOW them, but can't figure out where! That's what happened her to me.

So, I'm going to vote for Big Daddy because it was really brave of Leigh to submit the photo LOL and I always laugh at the L on the forehead gig.

Keetha said...

Current score:

Diva 5 to Loser-Dork 1

Keep those votes coming!!!

Gerson y Betsy said...

I have to vote for "Diva Dad," although I think BOTH of them deserve a vote! :)

ClassyChassy said...

Diva Dad, definately!

Leigh of Bloggeritaville said...

Oh, Diva Dad gets my vote. LOL! And Big Daddy is my husband. LOVE that boa and tiara, that is fabulous!!!! This post cracked me up, Keetha!

Louise said...

Diva Dad takes it!

Leigh of Bloggeritaville said...

"I vote my dad"
Thanks, Mrs. Keetha,
J Smooth

Leigh of Bloggeritaville said...

Big Daddy here (under Leigh's name), I vote for Diva. Apparently, I am lacking the crown, though I have often claimed I am "king of the house". Don't tell Leigh but I never had the proper attire. She owns that.

Brooke said...

This is extremely hard, they both look HILARIOUS! For the picture, I think "Diva Dad" would totally win. I am evil to my dad .. or "Loser-Dork-Dad." LOL! But, I am going to vote my dad. Pfft, you should see him in his V-Necks trying to irratate my mom and I! *Sigh* If only everyone could see what a loser my dad is! LOL!

Brooke said...

Okay, here I am, voting again. :) Mrs. Keetha, tell your husband I said he was hilarious! He's received one of my votes! ROFL! :D

nancygrayce said...

Since I am always for the under dad, I'm voting for loser-dord dad! I just love the name! Of course it was hard with the tiara/boa/microphone competition!

lifepundit said...

What a very funny idea! This is hilarious.

I thought my husband was the only one for whom family gatherings inspire naps -- right in the middle of things.

I vote for whichever one conks out at gatherings and SNORES.

Amy said...

Diva Dad gets my vote! Any man that can carry off a feather boa that well, well he deserves a standing ovation!!

Holly said...

That is HILARIOUS!!! It has to be Diva Dad hands down. Really the contest isn't completely fair, because even though Loser-Dork dad definately deserves many good-natured votes,...who can compete with Diva Dad?? I mean come on....the boa,...the tierra...it's just a no brainer!! ;););)

KBeau said...

When I saw Big Daddy's shirt my first thought was, "That's an Auburn shirt." That was before I even read that it was Leigh's husband. So does that mean I've lived in Alabama too long?

Nevertheless, I have to vote for Diva Dad. Any dad dressed up in a boa and tiara gets my vote.

Keetha said...

KBeau, you are GOOOOOOOOD!!! I KNEW it was Big Daddy and I also KNEW he was an Auburn man and I still didn't realize he's wearing an Auburn shirt, just didn't think about it!!!

Current vote count:

Diva Dad 18 , Loser-Dork Dad 4

xinex said...

I vote for Diva Daddy because he looks so glamorous with his Boa but Dork Dad comes very close, lol!...Christine

grammy said...

DIVA DAD has my vote. He even laughed when he woke up & saw how "glamorous" he looked!!!!

grammy said...

Anyone brave enough to use a "pink" microphone has my vote!!!!

grammy said...

BOTH of these Dad's are #1 Dad's. You notice they didn't for themselves. LOVE both of their comments!!! While I'm on here, the cats-Dixie & Billy Bob said they chose Diva Dad!!!! So if cat votes count...that's another 2....

Lynn said...

Oh, you KNOW Diva Dad is going to run away with this contest! It's all that pinkness!
You are so funny!
"annotated"
bwahahaha

Brooke said...

This is so hard. They are both extremely funny. But, I'm sorry, but I just HAVE to vote Loser-Dork Dad. I mean ... :) Who falls asleep in a computer chair sitting straight up!?

Keetha said...

Oh Brooke - - - this is IMPORTANT new information!!!! I will ADD it to the contest report.

Diva Dad 25 Loser-dork Dad 6

Leigh of Bloggeritaville said...

It's true. He does sleeep sitting up! I think that goes back to his college days....

skyesofblue said...

Thank you sweet Keetha for your comment on my post. For some reason I can't e-mail to people.
(Need the smart son to come over and work on that) I really appreciate your words and totally understand. Thank you for pointing that out because I have felt that same thing before. :)

janet said...

hugs
janet

Trish said...

Yep, Diva Dad has my vote...He has to win...he's already been crowned!

Michelle said...

My Dad used to fall asleep at family gatherings too and boy did my Mom get mad. He never seemed to care though...LOL!

From the great State of Florida, all my friends (I will name at a later date) casts all 40 votes for Diva Dad!!!!

Lynn said...

Pets can vote!
Oh I did not know that, Well you can add 7 more votes to Diva Dad!
My "It's a July thing" came from the many friends I taught with who had July birthdays as I did. We all seemed to be weird and to explain our strange activities, we just said, "You wouldn't understand. It's a July thing."
We even started to put those words on T-shirts and nighties.
See?
It evolved.
It's a July thing.

Chandy said...

Keetha, you come up with the funnest things! LOL

I'll have to go for Diva Dad as well though Loser Dad did make it difficult with the computer standing up sleep thing, for me.

Diva Dad just looked so radiant with his tiara on! LOL
