Cup of Tea for Daddy...:-)
One day my mother was out and my dad was in charge of me.I was maybe 2 1/2 years old..
Someone had given me a little 'tea set' as a gift and it was one of my favorite toys.
Daddy was in the living room engrossed in the evening news when I brought Daddy a little cup of 'tea', which was just water.
After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such yummy tea, my Mom came home.
My Dad made her wait in the living room to watch me bring him a cup of Tea, because it was 'just the cutest thing!'
My Mom waited, and sure enough, here I come down the hall with a cup of tea for Daddy and she watches him drink it up.
Then she says, (as only a mother would know...)'Did it ever occur to you that the only place she can reach toGet water is the toilet?'

Then of course the kitchen always needs to be cleaned. I want it like this again...
...Right now a little bit of my counter space has a couple piles of papers on it & Sissy's medicine. ( Which I'm HAPPY to say she needs NO MORE!!! ) And I don't like it... Hence... Spring Cleaning!!! ( Before Spring even gets here. )
... Yesterday I was at Home Depot. I saw a big display of seeds & plants. I bought seeds for Arugula. Very Good. I have a list of stuff that will go in the garden and herbs for me to grow in pots here at home for me to use in my cooking. Am I the only one here that can't wait to start growing Mint, Parsley, Cilantro , Basil and DILL? That's all I had on the patio last year.
... I better quit JUST TALKING about cleaning and ACTUALLY do it. So I'll talk to you later!!!

There is a two-letter word that perhaps has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that is 'UP'...
When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP. When the sun comes out we say it is clearing UP! When it rains, it wets the earth and often messes things UP.
When it doesn't rain for awhile, things dry UP.One could go on and on, but I'll wrap it UP, so........it is time to shut UP!

He's good luck because he probably made you smile. When you're finished trying to see up his loincloth,
(AND YOU JUST LOOKED AGAIN, DIDN'T YOU??), why not send this on to some of your girlfriends to make them smile, too?
One for the girls:
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my shape to keep.
Please no wrinkles, Please no bags,
Please lift my butt before it sags.
Please no age spots, Please no gray,
As for my belly, Please take it away.
Keep me healthy, Keep me young,
And thank you Lord, For all you've done.
(WHOOPS! Too late!)
One saggy boob said to the other saggy boob: 'If we don't get some support soon, people will think we're nuts.'

Here is the picnic table we use to measure the snow we get. You can see ice hanging from it underneath the table.
I have more pictures I want to take. We have Ice hanging from the top story of our house that I want to get a picture of tomorrow !!! It's pretty, but there is so much of it, it's making the gutter bow a little.
And of course... a cartoon : A touch racist, but still cute...:-)
Do you know why it's so cold?
Because almost every white person for 200+ years said, "It will be a cold day in Hell, before a black man becomes President."
Enjoy the weather. :-)

********** The Real Miss America **********
This 19 year old ex-cheerleader (now an Air Force Security Forces Sniper) was watching a road that led to a NATO military base when she observed a man digging by the road. She engaged the target (i.e. , she shot him). It turned out he was a bomb maker for the Taliban , and he was burying an IED that was to be detonated when a US patrol walked by 30 minutes later. It would have certainly killed and wounded several soldiers.
The interesting fact of this story is the shot was measured at 725 yards. She shot him as he was bent over burying the bomb. The shot went through his butt and into the bomb which detonated; he was blown to pieces. The Air Force made a motivational poster of her:
(Folks , that's a shot 25 yards longer than seven football fields!)
And the last thing that came out of his mouth . was his ass!

That's one of the ways we measure the snow at a glance. Since we're getting more snow tonight and tomorrow... We'll be measuring it with a yard stick.

************************* Irena Sendler ****************************
There recently was a death of a 98 year-old lady named Irena. During WWII, Irena, got permission to work in the Warsaw Ghetto, as a Plumbing/Sewer specialist. She had an 'ulterior motive' ... She KNEW what the Nazi's plans were for the Jews, (being German.) Irena smuggled infants out in the bottom of the tool box she carried and she carried in the back of her truck a burlap sack, (for larger kids..) She also had a dog in the back that she trained to bark when the Nazi soldiers let her in and out of the ghetto. The soldiers of course wanted nothing to do with the dog and the barking covered the kids/infants noises.. During her time of doing this, she managed to smuggle out and save 2500 kids/infants. She was caught, and the Nazi's broke both her legs, arms and beat her severely. Irena kept a record of the names of all the kids she smuggled out and kept them in a glass jar, buried under a tree in her back yard. After the war, she tried to locate any parents that may have survived it and reunited the family. Most had been gassed. Those kids she helped got placed into foster family homes or adopted.
63 years later .

Tomorrow Sissy sees the vet again... Lets hope the tests come back good. But I'm worried about it. She isn't eating again. She was for a little bit. She seems to go up and down.
It looks like I have to go have my Blackberry fixed or exchanged. It doesn't seem to want to ENABLE bluetooth so I can somehow wirelessly connect it to my car. ( I have SYNC in my car.) Oh well. I'll let the guys handle it.
...The picture below came in an e-mail. ... I thought it was cute.
