ALL IN THE NAME….

I’m sorry it’s been so long between postings…..while July offered some wonderful vacation time with family and friends it was also a month of loss and addition to the FatJoe Clan…

The addition is our new puppy….and being FatJoe what else could I name her???

Meet Brisket……she is a 6 week old Blue Heeler (Australian Cattle Dog)……and…..yes…..she is named after a slab of slow cooked, smoked meat….

SHE’S AS CUTE AS SOME BRISKET…

How we got to the name is kinda interesting….

As we began discussing getting a new puppy, we were having dinner at a Tex-Mex joint and were throwing out names….and almost in a kidding way I suggested Brisket…I got the EYE-ROLL on that and we proceeded to names like, Winnie and Dixie….

We had to drive out to see her at the breeder’s and found out it would be a week or two before we could bring her home….

LUCY….THIS IS BRISKET YOU CAN’T EAT

On the way home I floated the name Duckie….and The Wife didn’t say no to that….and eventually it came down to  Winnie or Duckie…..

One night on the phone with The Mom-In-Law, The Wife threw out that I wanted to name the dog Brisket……and The Mom-In-Law laughed and told her that it was a cute idea….later that same week we were with the Big Willie Family and Mrs. Big Willie also chimed in with saying that Brisket was a very cool name for a puppy….especially for FatJoe’s puppy….

I guess sometimes it takes someone  else pointing out brilliance……and The Wife lives with such outstanding brilliance on a daily basis that I guess at times she just takes it for granted….and to her credit, once the light switch flipped on……she came around to  what everyone else could so clearly see……

 AND BRISKET IS HER NAME-O……

Next we get back to the rest of the Memphis/Nashville tour and then on to Hawaii Part II…..
