Kay can't get on the Internet
Kay hit the snot out of her head first thing today
J, her boy, got hit in the nose with a baseball
All of the kids played "Twister" and no one got hurt!
The van is fixed, and my Hubby is going to do the tune-up tomorrow
We had a good lunch and dinner
And, as of this time, the night is still young and the kids are back outside with a ball, so someone still has time to get injured.
Plans to catch firefly's
Plans to roast marshmallows (not tonight)
Plans to go eat out somewhere
And I plan to go to bed early tonight...right :)
Oh, and an interesting side note... My bird Koko likes Kay! Hmmm!

I see the flowers and flags... being placed inside the yard
Silent memory...quiet voices
I see them guarding the dead
I see the old man kneeling
Pulling weeds from the flowers and flags
I see the tears he doesn't want to shed
For the loss and for the dead
I see the small child standing
Among the flowers and flags
Wondering why Grandpa is crying
Wondering why he is sad
Today the sun is shining
Today good food will be had
Just don't forget the reason
For all of the flowers and flags

I have been know to push all of my sisters many, many buttons...a lot, and often, and than to run and hide. :) (like that worked, I always thought if she killed me she would get in trouble..maybe)
I collect knives, and yet I am afraid of cutting myself.
I can imitate many musical instruments, and some people.
I have to count telephone poles while riding in a car, or driveways, or trees, or birds, or whatever.
I once had a girl from my mom's church convinced that I could tell the difference between the different colored M&M's ( I was almost 30). I had a streak going. Oh yes, I'm that good.
I carried a pocket knife and a rubber tarantula in my purse as a child. Her name was Charlotte. (the spider not the knife..I don't remember the knifes name).
I am so good at using "puppy dog eyes" that I have voluntarily banned myself from using them. The power is too much for one person.
I hum at work.
I whistle for my kids (and husband). They know my whistle, and obey. LOL!!! Right!
At least once a week I crack myself up so much that I laugh out loud.
I ask strangers if their piercings hurt.
Or where they got their hair done...red, frosted,freaky, you know...
Okay...quick story..I was saying something once to my hubby and he said "If your trying to make me feel guilty it's not working" I said, "if I were trying to make you feel guilty...you would" He didn't think so, so I started to tell him what I was saying before, and laying it on, and he said "fine!" And started to go do it, and I said "I was making you feel guilty and you did!" I laughed and so did he, I know how to use the guilt trip...my mommy taught me that one. :) With love of course.
Now share at least one odd thing about you.
Remember to keep it clean...you know who you are.

So! If your child has a toy that is messy and gets lost all the time...safe bet is that it's a favorite.

She told me that the funny thing is in Florida...if you DON'T have the exterminator visit your home regularly people think your dirty. In Missouri...if you DO have the exterminator visit your home people think your dirty. I think that's funny too.
She told me to use "Torro" from W.M. it works by letting the poor little critters gobble up the yummy poison, and than take it home to share with the rest of the folks, and than they all die. I have to use it about every 3 weeks or so, but I don't mind. The rain drives them inside the house, and it's been raining quite a bit here. I came home from work to find my little arch enemies crawling all over the floor. I found the "stuff" and got busy. It works.
I don't like ants outside my home either, but I don't think I should kill them. If they come inside...it's lights out. Outside...I can deal with it. In Colorado we had ants that would bite and chase you all over the yard. In Florida, am told, they have FIRE ANTS that can KILL you. Yup! The ants in my territory are little "Sugar ants" or known by another name.."Piss ants", squish one and you'll know why..because they sure don't smell like sugar!! I use either name depending on how swarmed I am at the time.
I also don't like mice. I live next to a field, so I could easily have mice. Last year I had my bird feeders on my back deck and that was an invitation for the mice to crawl under my house, and chew into my air vent and chew into my bedroom. We (Hubby) fixed the entrance problem, moved the feeders, and tied traps to yarn and dropped them onto the vents. We caught 9 mice! I hate mice more than I hate ants.
So the moral of this story is that there is always something worse that could happen, and that not all cats are natural-born mouse killers. Although mine happen to be... they just aren't natural-born mouse eaters, and that's another story.

I got some free e-books from http://www.altongansky.com/
He writes fiction and non-fiction books-I'm reading "Angel" by him right now.
I'm freezing today-it's colder inside than out, but I'm in, and I don't do cold.
I had the heater on and hubby came home and turned it off...it's only 73 inside!!
I'm gonna try to go with Hubby right now to go get car parts...wish me luck!
I did it! Did you miss me?
I like cinnamon gum- quite a bit.
But not the hot kind...just the sweet kind.
I'm chewing gum right now!
You know what kind.
I think I have a very strange imagination.
I mixed and baked 496 chocolate chip cookies today.
I have toxic scoop syndrome. Or something crampy in my hand.
I'm not very entertaining when I ramble, oh well.
I am gonna fix pancakes tonight for supper, and I also have to make some more syrup.
Yes, I make my own syrup...I use "Mapeline"
You can get it at Walmart it's by the spices...blue box. Good stuff.
Okay, that's all I can stand

View of both of our cars...the mercury is the one we've had.

I don't know how many times I've made some sort of noise, or said some sort of word, or used some sort of voice at just the same time that all and I mean ALLL of the room goes quiet.
I managed a glass shattering belch in a Pizza Hut just at the same time the Juke Box finished a song...I've had to talk to a bus boy with whipped cream on my nose (K had some on hers too I think)...I've used the Church bathroom as my personal echo chamber only to find out that the whole church was listening to me...I've often been caught be-boppin' to some tunes while driving-not a pretty sight...I have been forbidden by my daughter to use the phrase "none-yo" as in none your business...I can, however, say "what-ev" as in whatever.
I think the lesson that you can learn from my trauma is that... drum roll...
You won't die if you do something stupid-as long as it doesn't involve firearms or race horses.
