Some Things Never Change

Many of my blogger friends talk of their kids and I realize that I’m older than I think because most of the kids I read about are in elementary school. Not mine; I have the dreaded beast of terror, destruction, and destitution that we call teenagers. Funny, though, no matter how well we try to train them day after day, week after week, they revert to their toddlerism days and do things that just plain crack me up.

Spawnette was just recently working on a project required of her speech class. They were to “invent” a product, design advertising and marketing materials, and present it to the class. She came up with some kind of walking, talking, breathing, and don’t forget to do the dishes and laundry telephone. The phone would have been a tad large and wouldn’t have fit in my pocket but that’s the price you pay for maid service.

A package of poster board and a box of markers later I present to you her first attempt at marketing.

It says: I ♥ U

Some things never change, do they? At least it was the dog and not the furniture or living room walls.

Rain Rain Go Away

Gearing up for emergency activation due to Tropical Storm Fay; don't know how long I'll be gone as we're responsible for the logistics for the entire state. Let's hope I'll be back in no time.
Stay safe, my friends.

My First Pink Saturday

It’s “Pink Saturday”. Many out in the blogosphere participate so I thought I’d give my hand a try. It’s rather dreary with a steady sprinkle coming down so I grabbed a cup o’joe, my camera (yes it’s pink),

and an umbrella (yes it’s pink, too)
and headed out the door. I didn’t go farther than my front yard because it was raining so this is as good as it gets.

The South Shall Rise Again....To The Back Of Your Throat Like A Chunk Of Vomit Maybe

Down here in the South we don’t bob for apples,

we bob for pig’s feet.

(That’s my little brother, Finnie, with his face in the bucket trying to win a blue ribbon at the annual redneck games.)

The Best Nest

Looks like sleeping in one of my paper lanterns
was easier than building his own nest.
