Guessing game. This will tell you how old you are.
Who had pink mints on the coffee table?
Who wrote Aunt a letter before they could talk?
Who always had ribbon candy and thin mints for Christmas?
Who made strawberry pies every summer?
Do you remember stories told in the past?
Who got into the tampax box and spread them all over the front room floor?
Should I stop?

Bail Out Plan Explained

Young Chuck in Montana bought a horse from a farmer for $100. The farmer agreed to deliver the horse the next day. The next day he drove up and said, 'Sorry son, but I have some bad news, the horse died.'Chuck replied, 'Well, then just give me my money back.'The farmer said, 'Can't do that. I went and spent it already'Chuck said, 'Ok, then, just bring me the dead horse.'The farmer asked, 'What ya gonna do with him?Chuck said, 'I'm going to raffle him off.'The farmer said, 'You can't raffle off a dead horse!'Chuck said, 'Sure I can, Watch me. I just won't tell any body he's dead.'A month later, the farmer met up with Chuck and asked, 'What happened with that dead horse?'Chuck said, 'I raffled him off. I sold 500 tickets at two dollars a piece and made a profit of $898.'The farmer said, 'Didn't anyone complain?'Chuck said, 'Just the guy who won. So I gave him his two dollars back.' Chuck grew up and works now for the government. He was the one who figured out how to "bail us out".

where is the chatter

i am waiting for this to get "live" !!! I want some action, some heated chatter !!! Or some fun stuff ... any body got a funny story ?

Check this out...Good for these employees

These guys were given a couple of days notice that they would be out of a job and expected to walk away without their final pay.......they didn't

my home

My home is where ever I feel safe and in control. My dog is home, my friends, my family are "home". There is so much more to "home" than four walls and a ceiling and until it all comes together you might well be standing naked in Times Square. Even though my house is far from my family and most of my friends I know that I am loved and that I love them. So with that, I can sit back in my chair in my house and feel safe and in control and that everything is going to be OK. Home is not something to chase but something to make.....

Welcome Home!

Life is so so so very good.......we never know what is around the next corner but it is often wonderful beyond our most creative imaginings.

I have spent my entire life looking for a home. Tim and I once counted how many times each of us had moved, (don't remember my total...A LOT) and though each of those moves had many practical "life happens" reasons; each time I hoped that this would be HOME. Just about the time I could remember where the measuring cups were stored I would start thinking about another house, city, state; that would feel more like home.

A few months ago Aunt Sharon and I discussed a blog where we could communicate as a family. My little brain has been playing with the idea since, a bit of study about blogs, reading lots of others' blogs and trying out various hosting sites. This morning it all came together, the blog name, the hosting site, my mission and it is.

I have found my home..... and it is my deepest hope that the rest of my family will join me. This is our "cyber home", a place we can gather regardless of where we are in this world. A safe haven to share our thoughts, plans, ideas, concerns, love, laughter; all the things that families need.

Like most homes this one has rules

1- We treat everyone with love and respect...Everyone is welcome and needed
2- We agree that sometimes we will disagree and that makes life interesting
3- Post what you want, whenever you want; this is your home too
4- We have no hall monitors, mama's or police so you have to manage your own behavior, clean up your own messes and be prepared to defend your own space.

This blog is a gift to me and my gift to you. Share what you want, talk to each other or the world in general. I am still learning the ins and outs of this but will share with you as I learn. Email me with any questions, suggestions or ideas.
