I was visiting my daughter using her car heading into town when I got misplaced having turned right or left wrongly and needed to backtrack again turning the wrong way. I haven't visited for 3 years so wasn't really concerned as it a small place and knew eventually I would find a landmark and sort myself out which I did. When I got home her friend had seen me driving the wrong way and told on me so much for keeping quiet about me tour of the backstreets.

When I was pretty young, we moved to a small town in far northern Minnesota. We joined the local church, and soon after, had the preacher over for dinner. While the kids were being introduced, the preacher asked my sister what her name was. She looked at him with big brown eyes, and solemnly told him her name was "Dottie dammit"! Just about then, he heard a noise behind him. Our Siamese cat had figured out how to open doors. She would take a flying leap at the door and hook her front paws around the stem of the door knob, the momentum would swing the door open. The preacher turned in his chair, and came face to face with this haughty Siamese hanging on the door knob, with this look on her face that said "who the hel* are you?" I don't recall him ever coming back for dinner again!

Last saturday I was in the pool enjoying myself when huge rainclouds and thunder started so I got out of pool ran straight for house no drying off left puddles in the kitchen while I ran off to bedroom to get changed. I forgot i left the dog outside so she was frantic to get let in and then more frantic because the cat was near her food bowl. the two of them start scuffling and one of them I dont know which hit into the back of my leg as I hit the water on the tile floor .I went up in the air then down on my knee.my glasses came off my face and into my eye as i tried to get them out of my eye the rest of my body came down hard last to land was my big head that cracked the floor hard. Did you ever try to cry with a dog licking your face. Bad enough she tripped me then she tried to drown me with kisses. Hurt like hell but I would have loved to see that on instant replay.Bruised knee ,black eye, and sprained ribs I have to admit that it must have looked very funny..

When I was six or seven, my mother and dad were out in the yard working with a rototiller, and my dad handed the handle to my mom and she made a couple rows in the garden out front of our house.
This garden was very small and for some reason the tiller started going backwards, and my mother moving with it got stuck and ended up backing up into the car to keep out od the way of the rotortiller as it was backing towards her, screaming for dads help he can and yanked the tiller so hard.
Well you guessed it, mother didn't let go and went flying into the air over the tiller and landed into a heap in the soft plowed garden. It was stuck in reverse and needed worked on.
She was very lucky not to have gotten hurt badly.
They only thing was her neck did get stiff for a few days but otherwise she was ok.
I was horrified as I watched this happening.
But smile about it now.
Mother is still alive and is 95. My dad passed away by the time I had just turned 8.

When our son was about 10, we had a wood stove in our basement family room, and one stormy snowy michigan night, the family had gathered in the basement to relax and get warm except our son, who was playing upstairs. I decided to hide on top of the built in bench seat in my snomobile suit that was hanging above the bench. emoticon My husband called to our son, and told him he couldn't find mom (me), so our son began his search, dad lay on the floor by the wood stove waiting for the show....When Michael came downstairs and got near the bench seat, I jumped up with the snow suit and Boy!!!! Did that poor little guy scream and run, We were all laughing so hard. Our son recovered fast, and laughed about it too! This was a payback for all the times he had jumped out and scared me and his two older sisters!!!! It was such fun, and our family have always been close! emoticon Laughter is life's shock absorber emoticon

I took my young daughter into the dressing room with me. She loudly admired my bra (which had the pretty butterflies on it) and insisted on trying it on. I figured what the hey since she could hula hoop in it. Later, when I took her to preschool, she told the teacher that she was mad at me for not allowing her to wear her butterfly bra to school.

Also, since most bras now have a ton of padding, I have a hard time explaining to my daughters that you will grow breasts, not slip them on in the morning. They still feel up lingerie at the store to see what size they want to be.

A little country humor.. When we had the dairy (we were kids), our cousins came to visit from a very populated California. They came with us to chore and while my oldest sister was milking one of her prize cows she said we were going to have to get her bred because she was drying up. Later, when we had just about finished a big breakfast, one of my teenage cousins piped up and loudly asked, "When are we gonna get the bread for the cow?"

My mother wasn't happy with all our antical laughter and she refused to let us explain!

On a return trip from Florida to Wisconsin during the winter, we found that we had come home to an ice storm. But the next day, when the sun came out, the pieces of ice started to fall from the tree branches. My four year old said, "Look Mommy! The trees are getting too much sun. They are starting to peel."

Have you ever seen pictures of a kid sticking his tongue to a metal pole in the winter? I got a huge run in my panty hose one winter day and took them off since there was more of me out than in. When I got out of my car, I slipped on the ice and landed right on my behind - my very warm behind - which immediately stuck to the ice. They had to call a rescue squad but even they tore a huge chunk of skin off getting me up. I had a scab on my butt for weeks!

Read today blog "FAVORITE CHRISTMAS STORY". It's absolutely true. My Mom nearly killed us both! That stupid tree nearly was so big, we cut it in half and Grandma put the other half in her house. It looked weird because there was no top to put the angel on, but it sure did fill up our huge living room.

My hubby and I just got back from Black Friday shopping. At one store a sales girl asked us if we needed help finding anything, and my bubby replied ya, can you tell me where the money tree is. She said she wasn't sure, but that she would go find out and be right back!!

I have to make sure I shave my underarms every single day now. A couple weeks back my daughter apparently told her kindergarten teacher on "share" day that her mommy has a beard growing out of her armpits.

One very hot summer day the AC went out while my daughter and her family were visiting. Being a chubbo with flabby arms, I seldom wear tank tops but that day called for it. I reached up to get something off the fridge. One of the boys, who was about 6 was startled by what he saw. "Gramma, look, your muscle fell....it's suppose to be up here, like mine" The look on his face and his genuine concern kept me from laughing out loud. Not sure, but don't think I've ever worn a tank top since then. LOL

When my nephew was about 9, my sister and brother-in-law told him they were going to take him to the store and get him a new Easter outfit. To their bewilderment he protested it and even came to the point of tears. They coaxed him in to going finally but he was still clearly unhappy about the notion. When my brother-in-law asked him, "Don't you want to get a new Easter outfit and look real sharp?" he responded, "I don't want to dress up like an Easter Bunny!" As you can imagine, they and I have told this story many times.

That reminded me of when I was going to college and was doing a class project in the daycare. We had done a science experiment where I had cut a few holes towards the bottom of a 2 liter plastic bottle. Each hole had a straw placed in it, the we went into the green house and we put water in the tops and the bottles spun from the water pouring out of the straws. The kids (ages 3-5) loved it. At the end of the project on my way out the door a little girl stopped me and gave me a 'special gem stone". It was actually a very tiny hard to see piece of gravel. LOL. I loved it, and still have it in my treasure box like I told her I would put it. It was the sweetest thing.

When working at a K-Mart one Christmas, a darling little girl came through the checkout with one pair of pink underpants. She looked at me very seriously and asked, "Do you think these will fit my Grandma?" I told her , "I don't know. How big is your Grandma?" her reply, "She's about as fat as you." I couldn't even get upset with her but the rest of the people in line about cracked up.

I have been working out for a short while now, and although I have only lost about 12 pounds I am sure that I have gained additional muscle as well. One evening I was hanging out at home alone (wife and son were out on an errand), taking it easy, and had my shirt off. I decided that I would go to the grocery store. I hurriedly put on my shirt and was on my way. After I had arrived at the grocery store and was making my way around , I noticed that I was receiving a few looks from the ladies. I began to think that maybe my weight loss, as little as it is , had maybe made a big difference in my appearance. Kind of an ego booster. I thought, "this is nice for a change". As I left the store, I jokingly thought to myself, "yeah, I`m the man". I made my way home, and waited for my family to arrive. After they had been home for a while, my son comes by me and says,"Dad, you do realize that your shirt is inside out ?"
"Of course , son. That`s the way all the cool people are wearing shirts nowadays." OOPS......Life can be humbling sometimes .............

I had just brought in the beautiful Easter ham and put it on the table when my Dad decided he wanted one good family picture before Grandpa unbuckled his pant after dinner. So we all got up for a quick picture in the living room only to return and find that my German Shepherd had helped himself to the ham and taken it out his doggie door to his dog house. Would you want to go out there and try to retrieve it?

I was once singing at a country fair, with my band when it started to look like rain. They moved us all into the beer tent and it got very hot, very fast in there. One biker, who had too much of that nice cold beer, came up to tell me how he liked my singing and threw up all over my shoes and shorted out my guitar! That was the last outdoor gig we ever played.

When coming home from grocery shopping, my youngest decided she HAD to help carry something in. So I gave her a boxed pie that I had bought. When I came back outside, the pie was upside down in the driveway and her lip was trembling and there were big tears in her eyes. So I told her to go in the house and get two forks and we sat in the driveway and ate pie off the concrete. She remembers that to this day.

When my oldest daughter was young, we took a vacation, during the winter, to Florida. When we came home, there was an ice storm during the night. The next day, as the sun came out, the ice started breaking off the trees and my daughter said, "Look Mommy! The trees are peeling too."

When my oldest daughter was little, Grandpa loved to babysit. He had a huge garden and her sandbox was right next to it. He went inside for a few minutes and when he came out she had her sand pail filled with tiny green balls. She had picked all his baby tomatoes! Later he saw her out there with a bottle of Elmer's glue trying to put them back on.

Back in January, a woman was texting while walking in a Pennsylvania mall, and fell into a fountain. It made the news all over the state, and I wondered what had become of things, as she was talking about suing the mall because the guards laughed.........well DUH! Of course, the video was posted on YouTube, and it IS funny! This is Pennsylvania, flolds, and we have cold, snowy winters! I bet that cured her from texting and walking!

Probably more than anyone wants to know, but had me giggling most of the day.

I wasn't feeling the best yesterday at work. Last night I was sitting outside with my neighbors, when I felt a poot coming on. I leaned over to share it with them, but there was a "bonus"...eww! They laughed hysterically as I waddled up the stairs to change.

Some years back my MIL was driving from PA to NC to visit a daughter, and as usual, she had her little Yorkie with her. She pulled off a road for the dog to pee, and a tractor trailer whizzed by, blowing my MIL's wig off her head. She grabbed the dog and took off after her wig, and of course, with each motorist that passed, the thing blew further and further away. Imagine the sight of this senior woman chasing a rolling wig down a highway!

The other day my DH came home from working a ten hour shift at work. He was extremely tired and decided to take a nap, as usual he grabbed my oldest cat to nap with her. When I walked past the bedroom the two of them were both spread out and sleeping in almost the exact position. I had to keep myself from laughing and waking the two of them up.

I went to church one Sunday with just my youngest daughter - then about age 2. I didn't want to leave her alone when I went to Communion so I took her up there with me. She quietly watched as the priest came down the row and when he got to us, she looked him right in the eye and said, "I wants a hamburger, french fries and a malted".

The other day I was watching TV when a movement outside caught my eye. I thought I should investigate. Well there was somebody stealing my compost. I quickly got my camera and have their photo. This reminded me of another time when I as sitting in the warm winter sun eating my lunch when the phone rang. I went inside to answer it and when I came back here was this criminal happily munching on my lunch. The two thieves look very similar.

Now I have your photo and I would (not) recognize you anywhere, anytime, any place!
Huge Reward offered for capture and conviction. (not)

Oh and if you are wondering what lured this thief to steal my compost I had peeled and cored 3 apples and put the scraps out planning to take it to be composted later.

Wallaby stew anyone? (a wallaby is a small kangaroo and can be eaten)

My 4 yr old niece is going to be getting a little brother or sister in January and she informed us all that I wasn't going to be the babies aunt, that I was only hers and her older cousins aunt. The new baby had to call me cousin. She doesn't like sharing very much, were all trying to break that habit.

A couple years ago on Christmas, my brother and two nephews stayed overnight with my parents and me due to getting snowed in.
My nephew, then 5, walked up to my mom, and asked, "grandma, where is daddy going to sleep? Between you and grandpa?" It was classic! As we laughed at him, the confused look on his face was priceless.

I had trouble with my computer the other night so I turned it off and on. The power strip is connected to my clock. I reset my clock then went on my way. I was watching TV and nothing was on as scheduled. First I thought the time had changed and I didn't know about it. Next I thought there had been a big speech and all the programs were behind. I finally noticed I had set the clock an hour ahead. I just turned 60 last week so I guess I have an excuse for this.

I'm walking this morning and my sweet, frisky dog wants to play "take away/chase" She's so lonely since her little brother died. She wants me to play dog games now. Unfortunately, the item she tosses in my direction with her mouth is a stinky, dead field rat. She would toss it and then crouch waiting for me to grab it so she could chase me down and take it back. Some people think they're dogs believe they're people. But sweet Bella thinks we're all dogs like her!

I know I can do this because the Word tells me "I can do all things through Christ who strenghtens me!"

So I'm folding clothes one evening and I pick up one of my son's tshirts to fold and realize it's a pair of my big ole drawers! I declare, they were as big as his tshirts are!!!

Then, I go to this "swanky, fancy" salon to get a massage (my family gave me a gift certificate). They have me to sit in a dainty little chair and when I stood back up, the chair came with me! Embarrassed, but had to laugh. emoticon

Years age(15?) I worked in a daycare,the 3 year old. Two of the little girls in my class were setting at one of the tables playing& sipping tea (tea set).
one girl said "my daddy aint my daddy.my uncle is.
second girls just smiles & says "my mom smokes crack."

I had to laugh! Their moms were so caught off guard when I let them know of the days topic.Then we just laughed. No more soap operas both confirmed. Now years later I do hope neither mom minds me passing this event on.

I hope the little guy enjoyed the laugh too! emoticon

Here's one of my fave stories of my grandbaby:

DH & I were at his DD's house for Christmas. I needed to distract GD Kaile while Grandpa and her Mom carried in her too-big-to-wrap Christmas present and covered it with blankets, so we went into her bedroom, sat on the floor and played with Legos for awhile.

When it was time for us to go back to the living room, it was hard for me to get up off the hardwood floor. Kaile had spent time with us nearly every day of her life, so of course she knew my physical limits, and how I have to push and pull, and rock and struggle, to move around.

She said, "Oh Mimaw, I can help!" Then she came right to my side, leaned down and said: "UGHH, OWWWWW, OOOOOOO, UGGGHHH..."

I laughed so hard I fell back over! emoticon

This is not a joke! It is a true story, but it still makes me laugh whenever I think about it. Many years back, one of my grandkids (about 3 years old) loved dinosaurs. He had little plastic dinosaurs all over the place. To keep him entertained I would hide one under a pillow or somewhere else and he'd find it and get all excited. One day while playing this game and running out of good hiding spots I stuffed the dinosaur down my shirt. He caught me doing it, ran over to me, jumped into my lap and looked down my shirt.... then with a very surprised look on his face he turned up his little face to me and said: "Oh grandma is that where your butt is?" I started laughing so hard! It was one of those tears running down my face kind of laughs. Grandpa was in the room at the time and we had a lot of good laughs thinking about that day. My grandson just turned 21 last October! emoticon

Remember the slogan "this is the first day of the rest of your life?"
Actually it would be wiser to live each day as if it were the last day of your life.
