We're ba-a-a-accccck

Radio Question of the Day:

Dads do this in regard to their children 3 times more often than mothers do. What is it?


We're back from the shore. We had a great time. Everything went well, and the weather was great. There was a kite fest going on, and the Sunfest was held while we were there also. *I took pictures, but can't post them right now. The Sunfest is an Arts and Crafts show, with mega-food and musical entertainment as well. All in all, very good trip. To top it off, we got 53 miles per gallon in our Civic Honda Hybrid on the trip. We have gotten as high as 57 MPG on a trip, but 53 MPG is nice.

*My PC modem is shot and I am awaiting a new one (might be 5 days) so I can't read your blogs. Sigh. Right now I'm at 3D's using her PC. She's not here, so I'm taking this opportunity to mess up her house. heh heh heh. As if.

Answer to the Radio Question of the Day:

Forget to pick up the kids from school. Those dads.

Goin' to the beach

My husband Niks and I are going to Ocean City Maryland tomorrow morning and will be gone for a week. We used to go to OC every year with the kids. I have such fond memories of it. We'd go to ZIPS where they had make-your-own sundaes, play miniature golf, go to the carnival end of the pier and ride rides, and search all week for the perfect tee-shirt. OH! And we'd have an old-timey photo taken every year. Some of those are so funny! One year we girls got Niks to dress up as a gangster moll, and we dressed as the gangster guys. Our son Nivek was not amused. That Nivek. Kinda a macho guy even as a kid.

In June 2005 when my sister Bonnie visited us, we took her for a couple of days to Ocean City. She had never been to the Atlantic Ocean before. She loved it. That Bonnie. She loved everything. She had been to the Pacific Ocean, and had in fact lived and worked on Catalina Island one summer when she was 18. But she had never seen a boardwalk before. I'm glad she came to visit, and I'm very glad that I took her so many places. She died suddenly February 12, 2006.

Niks and I will have an ocean front suite with a baloney and all kinds of special stuff, so if the weather isn't great, we don't have to care.

See you guys when I get back! Try not to be rowdy while I'm gone.

Real Men

Radio Question of the Day:

Eight per cent of men have done this, but they don't want their buddies to know.
What is it?

Answer to the question of the day:

Painted their wife's toe nails.
Not their girl friend’s toenails? You men.

I knew that real men wore makeup. I see it on soldiers and football players.

Happy weekend folks.

Say what????

This ad was in a magazine that I was reading. If you can't read the part above the spice tin, this is what it says: Okay, it doesn't say anything, you have to read it. Smart asses. It reads as follows: Except for black pepper, McCormick spices in rectangular tins are at least 15 years old. Holy cow. I checked my spices. I had 7 rectangular tins of McCormick spices. Well, sh*t fire and save the matches.

I’m so dumb. This brings up another buncha stuff I don’t know about.

Such as, can you cry underwater?

Why does a round pizza come in a square box?

What disease did cured ham actually have?

Why do toasters always have a setting that burns the toast to a horrible crisp, which no human being would eat? Why does the setting go that high?

If a deaf person has to go to court, is it still called a hearing?

Can a hearse carrying a corpse drive in the carpool lane? I vote yes.

If Wiley E. Coyote had enough money to buy all that ACME crap, why didn't he just buy dinner?

Do the Alphabet song and Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?

Did you just try singing the two songs above? You guys.

Do you ever wonder why you read anything I post in the first place?

September 11

I thought that I had seen and heard all I could stand to see and hear about September 11, 2001. But I just saw an amazing documentary about it. It begins with a quest to follow a rookie firefighter during his probationary period as a new fireman. The quest resulted in the only known video of the first plane striking the World Trade Center.

I couldn’t take my eyes off it. It was filmed by brothers Jules and Gedeon Naudet. Jules was with the firemen inside Tower One when Tower Two collapsed. I’ve never seen anything like this before.

You think you have seen and heard it all about the events of September 11. The planes hitting the Twin Towers, people standing shocked in the streets, firemen rushing into the buildings, the two collapses, the dust, the confusion. You’ve seen it all so often on television that they no longer retain the power to shock you.

But if you watched this 9/11 documentary, you heard the sound of people striking the sidewalk outside Tower One. The firemen couldn’t use the closest door to them to evacuate because it wasn’t safe. It wasn’t safe because of bodies falling outside. This film is different from what you have seen before. If you get a chance to see this documentary, you should do it.

We all remember where we were when we got the news about the attacks. Exactly what we were doing when we heard. I was thinking about my Mama that morning. September 11, 2001 was the first birthday she missed. She would have been 92 that day, but she had died in February. I guess I’m kinda glad she didn’t have to see what happened that day.

Question of the Day:
What are two reasons why it's so hard to solve a redneck murder?
Some of y’all know that I was born and raised in the south. Yesterday in church, my mind was wandering. (Yes, yes, I know. It’s such a little thing I shouldn’t let it off on its own.) I was thinking back to my childhood church days. I was reared in a fundamentalist Christian Church. Kinda a redneck place. How do you know if your church is redneck?

1. You Know You're in a Redneck Church if...the finance committee refuses to provide funds for the purchase of a chandelier because none of the members knows how to play one.

2. You Know You're in a Redneck Church if...
people ask, when they learn that Jesus fed the 5000, whether the two fish were bass or catfish, and what bait was used to catch'em. (Actually I’d want to know are they fried or what? I mean, I don’t eat fried stuff anymore.)

3. You Know You're in a Redneck Church if...when the pastor says, "I'd like to ask Bubba to help take up the offering," five guys and two women stand up.

4. You Know You're in a Redneck Church if...opening day of deer season is recognized as an official church holiday.

5. You Know You're in a Redneck Church if...A member of the church requests to be buried in his 4-wheel-drive truck because "It ain't never been in a hole it couldn't get out of."

6. You Know You're in a Redneck Church if...the choir is known as the "OK Chorale".

7. You Know You're in a Redneck Church if... in a congregation
of 500 members, there are only seven last names in the church directory.

8. You Know You're in a Redneck Church if...people think "rapture" is what you get when you lift something too heavy.

9. You Know You're in a Redneck Church if...the baptismal pool is a #2 galvanized washtub.

10. You Know You're in a Redneck Church if..the choir robes were donated by (and embroidered with the logo from) Bubbas Barbecue.

11. You Know You're in a Redneck Church if...the collection plates are hubcaps from a 56 Chevy.

12. You Know You're in a Redneck Church if...instead of a bell; you are called to service by a duck call.

13. You Know You're in a Redneck Church if..the minister and his wife drive matching pickup trucks.

14. You Know You're in a Redneck Church if...the communion wine is Boone's Farm "Tickled Pink".

15. You Know You're in a Redneck Church if..."Thou shall not covet" applies to huntin' dogs, too. Well doh!

16. You know You're in a Redneck Church if..the final words of the benediction are, "Y'all come back now, Ya heah".
Answer to the Question of the Day:

1. All the DNA is the same.

2. There are no dental records.

Raining Cats and Dogs

Well, I love a rainy day. Sometimes. And this is an okay time. I'm sorry for all the folks who had an outdoor event planned, but at least they had lots of advance warning about the weather. We actually do need the rain, and there' nothin' we can do about it anyway. So, it's okay for me to enjoy it. Right?

Happy weekend folks!

Rabbit Rabbit

It's the first of the month! September at last. My favorite month. Time to say RABBIT RABBIT!

But it's supposed to rain the whole weekend. I'm bummed about that. Luckily I'm adorable when I pout.
