Once apon a time.......

When I was a weee little one my grandpa would sit me on his lap and tell me a story. It was called three robbers. Practicly everytime he saw me he would tell it and I would listen intently to every word. Sometimes I would get upset because it was like he was not telling the whole story. Now I tell it to who ever will listen and he continues to tell it to my nieces and nephews. It's become a family tradition. So I thought I would tell it to you......don't worry there are pictures. :)
Once apon a time, on a Darrrrk and storrrrmy night there were three robbers that lived in a cave.
One of them said "Hey Joe! Tell me a story"
Joe said "OK!"
"Once upon a time, on a Darrrrk and Storrrrmy night there were three robbers that lived in a cave."
"One of them said "Hey Joe! Tell me a story."
"Joe said "OK!"

"Once upon a time on a Darrrrk and Storrrrmy night there were three robers that lived in a cave." "One of them said "Hey Joe! Tell me a story!"

"Joe said "OK!"........

...........I am going to end it here for now but if you would like to hear the rest of the story you may call me! :)

About little ol' me

A: The rules of the game are posted at the beginning.
B: Each player answers the questions about themselves.
C: At the end of the post, the player then tags 5 people and posts their names, then goes to their blog and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

Atleast he's honest

My sister in-law Sara just recently started to work from home. While her little guy (3 1/2) Zack was playing with his trains on the floor she decided to use this time as a teaching opertunity. She was telling him about Thanksgiving and what it was all about. She explained about the indians and pilgrims when he interupted her by saying "Mom, this isn't a very good story." She proceeded to tell him what she was thinkful for then asked, "Zack, what are you thankful for?." With out missing a beat or looking up from his trains he said "I am thankful that your story is over."
Gotta love em.

Some People's Kids!

I know you have all heard of the crazy warning lables that make you wonder if they really exist. This is what I always thought until today. One of my co-workers brought a few in to work today. Yes that's right, lables, lables, lables, all cut out and everything. You would have thought he was ready for the science fair. Why he had them no one really knows and perhaps we can discuss that another day (it will probably be under the heading "Too much spare time".) But for now I just wanted to share some of them with you.

Nydol sleep Aid:
"Warning: May cause drousiness"
(so just to be safe look for something that says " "will" cause drowsiness")

On a child's Superman's costume:
"Wearing of this garment does not enable you to fly"
(Oh yeah go ahead. Why don't you just crush all dreams! What are you going to tell us next? Santa isn't real?)

On a food proccesser:
"Not to be used for the other use"
(I don't know about you but I am really curious......the "other" use??)

Hair dryer:
"Warning: Do not use while showering"
(Oh you know there is someone somewhere rrrrreally late for work)

Bag of Fritos:
"You could be a winner! No purchace necessary. Details inside."
("But mom the bag told me to do it")

Bag of Peanuts:
"Warning may contain nuts"
(Now why in the world would they put those in there?)

Childrens cough medicine:
"Do not drive or operate heavy machinery after taking this medication"
(Whatever! Cold or no cold them dang kids have to work!)

"Do not attempt to stop with hands"
(I say let him (you know it's a guy) stop it with his hands, he'll only do it a couple times.)

Welp! That's all folks. Thanks for tuning in!

Don't Look Yet!

Wait!!! Don't look! I haven't posted anything yet!!!! Move along people. Nothing to see here.
