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.
