Bunches to say

Joke of the day, from Reel Wm Fish

"I recently asked my friend's little girl what she wanted to be when she grows up. She said she wanted to be president some day.

Both of her parents, liberal Democrats, were standing there, so I asked her, "If you were president what would be the first thing you would do?"

She replied, "I'd give food and houses to all the homeless people."Her parents beamed.

"Wow... what a worthy goal." I told her, "But you don't have to wait until you're president to do that. You can come over to my house and mow the lawn, pull weeds, and sweep my yard, and I'll pay you $50. Then I'll take you over to the grocery store where homeless guys hang out, and you can give them the $50, you earned, to use toward food and a new house."

She thought that over for a few seconds, then she looked me straight in the eye and asked, "Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50?"

I said, "Welcome to the Republican Party."

Her parents still aren't speaking to me."

However, I say (in good faith) that it is a joke, but with RWF it is hard to say, this might have actually happened!

Second - I heard this song on the XM kids radio station. I had to look it up to see IF it was a real word and if it was scrabble usable. Unfortunatly for me, it is a real, word and I am not fond of the meaning. LOL. Here goes:

qat - (noun) the leaves of the shrub Catha edulis which are chewed like tobacco or used to make tea; has the effect of a euphoric stimulant; "in Yemen kat is used daily by 85% of adults"

Song of the day, "People are Crazy" Billy Currington - I have finally heard a country song that means something! I love this song. I heard it today and if nothing else, click that link and check out the lyrics! I got a grin on hearing it eariler but missed the end of it. When I read the lyrics a minute ago, it is kind of sad, but still a cute song from a Hottie!

Quote of the day, "If we discover a desire within us that nothing in this world can satisfy, also we should begin to wonder if perhaps we were created for another world." C. S. Lewis on Mere Christianity. (1898 - 1963)

Friday cat blogging on Sunday:
What's for dinner?

Because CDM is wayward
Here is one for him. LOL. A free Coupon!
On to the Blog

I cleared all of that stuff out of my catche and forgot what I was going to say. HA.

I read in the news that Billy Mays died today. My goodness, so many people are dying all the sidden, I don't know if I will ever get to posting my two cents on them. For those that don't know, Billy Mays is the obnoxious guy that does the Oxi-Clean commercials.

We picked up the children and have spent the weekend with them. I think they are adjusting OK. Lucy has decided that she loves Doc. Doc has decided that he has to set a few rules down. Like... LMFAO... NO Lucy in the bathroom when he is trying to potty, take a shower, and get ready for work. Hee Hee. You should have heard her yesterday. She threw a fit. After we removed Lucy from the bathroom several times I told Doc to just lock the door. This he did, and Lucy pitched a tissy fit. I thought she was going to kick the door down. I don't know what I did now, but I managed to sway her into leaving the door alone! Then she pitched a fit when Doc went to work. Cute or what?

Other than that, it has been uneventful for the kids being here. They both seem to like it and love the kittens. They both drag the poor kittens all over the place. The female kitten, Shasta, is not too crazy about that idea and meow's in protest (A LOT) about it, and the little boy, Alvin the LL-mizer, just goes along with it like he is a dog. But payback is a bitch, Alvin pounced on Lucy in the middle of the night and woke her up and then hid. Little (insert bad word that starts with F and ends with "er"). Which meant I had to stay up with her for a few hours. Grumble grumble bitch bitch.

Molly is doing really good at adjusting. Sue had said that Molly was back to square one with forgetting things. And when we picked her up, she was really flighty and forgetful. She did better yesterday. Today I didn't have a problem at all. She helped with chores (not that I got a lot done because I spent 3 hours on the phone between Sue and Brian). LOL.

I will have pissed off kittens tomorrow. I bought a water bottle today to spray the kittens with when they bother the bird. Swatting at them with the fly swatter don't work and I really don't want to hit them.

I have not had the time to research the stuff on Michael Jackson or on Farrah Fawcet yet. Maybe I will get to that tomorrow. I developed a head ache @ the store today and I am nursing that and just don't feel up to a lot of reading. I am going to stop by and peer at a few blogs but taht is about it.

Hey Jenny,

Yeah, you do have a lot to say. The joke was pretty funny! Glad the girls are there, and oh, poor kittens! But they are cute, no wonder the girls want to pick them up and carry them around. Cute picture, too. That looks like a huge cage! What do you have in there, and ostrich? HaHA. Just joshin.

Well, I just got home, so gotta go and play catch up with the chores around here. Thanks for coming by. Good to see you now and then.



PS. You sound happy, and I'm so happy for you!

Lucy sounds so darned cute. When I was little I was such a daddy's girl that my mom had to give me a razor with no blade so I could "shave" when my dad did. I also tried to pee standing up but it didn't work very well.

As usual, love the kitten pics. Even though they are a lot of work, enjoy them. They grow even faster than kids!

RENIE- I enjoy your blog when you post! Always enjoy running into you.
Thalia is a Cockatiel (the small one)and yes, she has a huge cage.

NATALIE- Lucy is a brat, don't let the cuteness in the post fool you. She has taken right to Doc tho, she calls him Daddy Eric. I was a little shocked but he is ok with it SO... whatever works. Kittens are equal brats. Don't let their cuteness fool you either!

Thanks for stopping by ladies!
