(hands sushi some overalls, work boots and a hard hat.)
Here are the keys to the tractor. We need a big fence.
Knock yourself out.

Hi ladies, its a gorgeous day here, I made raspberry margaritas and have fresh salsa and hot chips.
Ah, I suspect that you understand the "Hollywood" version of the real, manly man. Let me explain the "Goodweed" version.

1. A manly man is confident in his abilities, but understands that he has limitations as do all living people, and understands the need for humility, which of course allows him to listen and learn.

2. A manly man understands that he is not the be-all/end-all of the universe, but merely another human who not only wants companionship, but requires it.

3. A manly man understands fully that a marriage is an equal partnership where both parties, male and female put the needs of the other before their own needs.

4. A manly man, though at some times a playfull rascal, loves to spread happiness, and assist in times of need.

5. A manly man is the man who takes on life with passion and vigor, who would rather ride horesback with a broken leg than sit on a couch all-day watching TV.

6. A manly man has Faith in something greater than himself.

7. A manly man is true to his word and exhibits honor in all of his dealings, every minute of every day.

8. A manly man knows fear and pain, but does what must be done in spite of it.

9. A manly man knows how to admit failure, defeat, and sorrow when circustances require it of him., But he tries very hard to suceed.

10. A manly man admits his mistakes, and is not afraid to say "I'm sorry".

11. A manly man is absolutely faithful to his wife and family. She and the children are first in his life.

12. A manly man is honest in his freindships.

13. A manly man is a happy man.

14. A manly man is organized, and at the same time, enjoys spontenaity.

15. A manly man says "I love you." to his wife often, and means it every time.

16. A manly man is mortal, and makes mistakes, and just sometimes, needs a kick in the gluteous maximus to straighten him out.

17. A manly man knows how to cook!

And the attributes go on.

Now who would you want to be in the company of, a manly man, even if he throws the occasional soft snowball, or water balloon, or do you want to hang out with the paid help?

Seeeeeya; Goodweed of the North

Goodweed, love your list and my husband exemplifies each and every attribute to their fullest. You did forget a few things though. Farting, belching, scratching come to mind. Not that ANY of our "manly men" would DO any of that!

Also, I am not a fan of camping of any sort as my family will tell you. Roughing it for me is a hotel sans room service. If there isn't a flush toilet I'm not interested. They'd punt me off Survivor first night when the whining got too intense for them.

So...this lovely refined atmosphere suits me to a tee. AAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa! Coffee and raspberry danishes this morning ladies. Sven, could you work on my neck please and maybe my feet later?

Alix, are you sleeping? You look so relaxed, but poor Sven's hands are in carpal-tunnel meltdown, I think. Maybe he should take a break.

Did you see the flyer someone put up on our fence? The "What Not To Wear" squad is coming............to the men's side! ha!

Ooooooooooo orange margarita here please! I think there might be some salsa and chips leftover from yesterday in the fridge too. I made one of those mexican layered dips with cream cheese, guacamole, salsa, bacon, olives, cheese and refried beans if anyone wants that too.
