Psst! Hey, it’s me, the Hubs. Kimba is off snoozing away in a turkey-induced tryptophan coma. She left her blog dashboard open! I’m grabbing what may be my one and only chance to set the record straight regarding a few things.

Kimba is a great storyteller as well as a fabulous wife, mother, and friend. But over the years she’s gotten a few things wrong during her tall tale telling. Examples include:
I do not snore. Well, I don’t snore all that loudly. OK, let’s say I do snore a little loudly, but my snoring has never knocked the cat off the bed. OK, maybe just once.
I am a brilliant fisherman. Yes, Kimba has caught King salmon way bigger than mine. That just makes her lucky. I’m talented. Dammit, I am.
I am a tough guy. Just because I rescue kittens, drink margaritas, love babies and listen to Celine Dion doesn’t make me a wuss. Anyone would look a little wimpy next to this:
I have a lot of stuff, I admit it. But you don’t see me complaining about her 24 little black dresses and 30 pairs of black shoes.
Kimba is really not all that neat. You should see the top of our bathroom sink.
I happen to be an excellent driver. Kimba, on the other hand, just sayin…
Shhh, here she comes. Be cool.
Pray for me,
PS: honestly, who doesn’t love Ms. Dion?

wow!! real fishermen listen to celine dion — whodathunkit? What a prize catch you have!
Kimba saysDecember 1, 2014 at 3:55 pm
Yep, he’s quite the catch! 🙂
Summer saysNovember 29, 2014 at 8:14 pm
This was BRILLIANT, so funny!! Thank you for sharing it with us.
Kimba saysDecember 1, 2014 at 10:31 am
Thx for stopping by Summer – and I just checked out your detox tips, so perfect after the weekend I just had!
Lisa at GrandmasBriefs saysNovember 29, 2014 at 6:50 pm
Too funny. My husband wouldn’t dare take over my blog for a day. I am, though, working on helping him start his own blog — Grandpa’s Shorts to be the partner site to Grandma’s Briefs. 😀
Kimba saysDecember 1, 2014 at 10:34 am
Grandpa’s Shorts – love it! Maybe my husband’s blog could be “His Side of the Story”
Jackie saysNovember 29, 2014 at 4:55 pm
You sound like a very good sport, “Kimba’s Hubs”! My husband would love to set the record straight himself, but he has no idea how to get into my blog and I’ll never eat enough turkey to go into a food coma and foolishly leave the dashboard open. 🙂
Kimba saysDecember 1, 2014 at 10:35 am
You are a wise woman Jackie. But, maybe let him loose just once, could be fun!
Lois Alter Mark saysNovember 29, 2014 at 4:12 pm
Ha ha! I can’t even imagine what my husband would post but am not too worried because he probably wouldn’t be able to figure out how to do it! Nice fish, by the way!
Kimba saysDecember 1, 2014 at 10:37 am
Thx Lois – the Hubs really is a pretty talented fisherman, I’m the one who tends to tell the fish tails/tales.
Toni McCloe saysNovember 29, 2014 at 4:09 pm
I love that post. It was so much fun to read (although it took me a minute to figure out what was going on.) You both have a great sense of humor,.
Kimba saysDecember 1, 2014 at 10:39 am
Thx Toni – most days we are able to make each other laugh, key to a happy marriage!
Hubs saysNovember 28, 2014 at 9:01 pm
Another great blog post, whoever be da author !
Kim Dalferes saysNovember 29, 2014 at 12:01 pm
Thx Hon. Now, about that driving comment…
Marquita Herald saysNovember 28, 2014 at 6:53 pm
Too funny, and no doubt way too late to keep this a secret from Kimba. Wishing you both a happy holiday weekend. 🙂
Kim Dalferes saysNovember 29, 2014 at 12:02 pm
Hi Marty – hope thing are fab this weekend in your neck of the world.
Karen saysNovember 28, 2014 at 2:20 pm
Great stuff, Kim!
Kim Dalferes saysNovember 29, 2014 at 12:07 pm
Thx Karen – hope your holiday is going well.
Diane saysNovember 28, 2014 at 2:01 pm
This. Was. Wonderful!!! Oh, I laughed! Thank you for brightening my day!
P.S. I can only imagine what my Husby would come up with. Locking my blog site as we speak . . .
Kim Dalferes saysNovember 29, 2014 at 12:11 pm
LOL Diane, you never know, your Hubs might surprise you.
Lynn Hasselberger saysNovember 28, 2014 at 12:54 pm
funny! I can only imagine what my hubs would write.
Kimba saysDecember 1, 2014 at 11:33 am
Yeah, never can tell what’s running around in their pretty little heads…
Susan - ofeverymoment saysNovember 28, 2014 at 12:22 pm
Great post! Everyone else in my family was in the turkey-induced coma while I wrote today’s post… maybe I should have awakened one of them to write it for me!
Kimba saysDecember 1, 2014 at 11:37 am
Yeah, maybe next I’ll let my son write a guest post, hmm….
Suzie Cheel saysNovember 28, 2014 at 10:51 am
That was so funny, what a great start to the day and I love that fish
Kim Dalferes saysNovember 29, 2014 at 12:15 pm
Haha, yes Suzie, the Hubs is quite proud of his fishing skills.
Carol Cassara saysNovember 28, 2014 at 10:31 am
I can see why the two of you are together! A match made in comedic heaven!
Kimba saysDecember 1, 2014 at 10:43 am
LOL Carol – laughter sure is our go-to glue to keep the relationship working.
Mary saysNovember 28, 2014 at 10:16 am
Love it! Just last night I asked my significant other if he wanted to guest post. He got this look on his face like a child going into a candy store. Then after a few minutes he said he would have to think about it.
Kimba saysDecember 1, 2014 at 10:44 am
Pls let us know if he decides to guest blog – could be the new thing to do, Hubs Guest Blogging!
Rena McDaniel saysNovember 28, 2014 at 9:55 am
Hahahaha! This was hilarious! There should be a day when we all turn over our blogs for one day to our hubby’s just to see how dumb they would turn out. Like a project or something! Hope you weren’t to hard on him!
Kimba saysDecember 1, 2014 at 10:48 am
Well, Hubs did cook the turkey this year, so I guess fair is fair.
