1st Thanksgiving Dinner Conversation

I finally sorted through the heaps of Thanksgiving schoolwork my son brought home last week. This gem was my favorite by far...

Not only by what after-dinner activities seem to be taking place on the deck of the Mayflower and the active marine life, but also because of the conversation taking place between the pilgrim and Indian.

Indian: "This is fun isn't it?"
Pilgrim: "Ya."

I suppose there was probably a lot of small talk around the table that day.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Hope you have a great Thanksgiving weekend!
My first pecan pie ever. I'm so proud, I don't know if I'll let anyone cut into it!

A Lot to Learn

This conversation took place after I unpacked our bags and straightened up after returning from a recent trip to Legoland...

My Husband: "Honey, the house looks great."
Me: "Really? Thanks!"
My Son: "I don't see anything different."

We'd better work on that, for the sake of our future daughter-in-law!

Trash Collection

Yesterday, during my son's baseball game, I was inspired to pick up the litter scattered all around the bleachers and sidewalks. Candy wrappers, burger wrappers, and bits of food were all properly disposed of in nearby garbage cans. I felt compelled to perform this great service, because each of these items nearly found a welcome home in my daughter's mouth.

Maybe my daughter and I will adopt a highway.

The Man Cold

It's getting to be that time of year... cold/flu season. Here's a little clip* to have a little laugh about it- and specifically the dreaded "Man Cold"!!

* Just so you are warned, peruse the other clips at this site at your own risk. Some are pretty crude.
