Merry Wednesday - 12/25/12 10:35 PM

"Sometimes, big trees grow out of acorns. I think I heard that from a squirrel."
Jerry Coleman

The teacher of the school geography class was lecturing on map reading.

After explaining about latitude, longitude, degrees and minutes the teacher asked:

"Suppose I asked you to meet me for lunch at 23 degrees, 4 minutes north latitude and 45 degrees, 15 minutes east longitude...?"

After a confused silence, little Johnny volunteered - "I guess you'd be eating alone!"

These are actual excuse notes teachers have received, spelling mistakes included.

My son is under a doctor's care and should not take P.E. today. Please execute him.

Please excuse Lisa for being absent. She was sick and I had her shot.

Dear School: Please ekscuse John being absent on Jan. 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, and also 33.

Please excuse Gloria from Jim today. She is administrating.

Please excuse Roland from P.E. for a few days. Yesterday he fell out of a tree and misplaced his hip.

John has been absent because he had two teeth taken out of his face.

Carlos was absent yesterday because he was playing football. He was hurt in the growing part.

Megan could not come to school today because she has been bothered by very close veins.

Chris will not be in school cus he has an acre in his side.

Please excuse Ray Friday from school. He has very loose vowels.

Please excuse Tommy for being absent yesterday. He had diarrhea and his boots leak.

Irving was absent yesterday because he missed his bust.

Please excuse Jimmy for being. It was his father's fault.

I kept Billie home because she had to go Christmas shopping because I don't know what size she wear.

Please excuse Jennifer for missing school yesterday. We forgot to get the Sunday paper off the porch, and when we found it Monday, we thought it was Sunday.

Sally won't be in school a week from Friday. We have to attend her funeral.

My daughter was absent yesterday because she was tired. She spent a weekend with the Marines.

Please excuse Jason for being absent yesterday. He had a cold and could not breed well.

Please excuse Mary for being absent yesterday. She was in bed with gramps.

Please excuse Burma, she has been sick and under the doctor.

A mother and her young son returned from the grocery store and began putting away the groceries.

The boy opened a box of animal crackers and spread them all over the table.

"What are you doing?" his mother asked.

"The box says you can't eat them if the seal is broken," the boy explained, "so I'm looking for the seal!"

A little boy was in a relative's wedding. As he was coming down the aisle he would take two steps, stop, and turn to the crowd (alternating between bride's side and groom's side). While facing the crowd, he would put his hands up like claws and roar loudly.

So it went, step, step, ROAR, step, step, ROAR all the way down the aisle.

As you can imagine, the crowd was near tears from laughing so hard by the time he reached the front. The little boy, however, was getting more and more distressed from all the laughing, and was near tears by the time he reached the pulpit. When asked what he was doing, the child sniffed and said, "I was just being the Ring Bear!"

The teacher asked little Johnny if he knows his numbers.

"Yes," he said. "I do. My father taught me." "Good. What comes after three." "Four," answers the boy.

"What comes after six?" "Seven."

"Very good," says the teacher. "Your dad did a good job. What comes after ten?"

"A Jack."

This one little boy in about 4th or 5th grade was trying out for a school play. He earned a part and went home to tell his father.

His father was really proud of him. So his father asks what part did you get?

He replies I got the part of a man who has been married for 25 years.

His father congratulated him. And then he said "That's good son, maybe next time you'll get a talking role!"

Little Johnny was in the garden filling in a hole when his neighbor peered over the fence.

Interested in what the cheeky-faced youngster was doing, he politely asked, "What are you up to there, Johhny?"

"Well, my goldfish died," replied Johnny tearfully, without looking up,"and I've just buried him."

The neighbour was concerned, "That's an awfully big hole for a goldfish, isn't it?"

Johnny patted down the last heap of earth then replied... "That's because he's inside your cat!"

Good morning everyboomie. 

Break's over, back to work until next Sunday. I can hardly contain my excitement. My feet are tingling all under.  razz12

What are you all excited about today? 

Maybe I can help you contain your excitement. I have some experience. 

All my life I've had to contain my excitement.................or, was it to hold my water?.....  think

I don't think they're the same. I'm just not so good at holding my water. 

As a matter of fact I think I'll most likely lose my water any number of times before I get up tomorrow. slapforehead

I don't even like holding my water. It's like when someone says "get a hold of yourself man!"

Every time I do that, people look at me like I belong in a psyche ward.

They're like, "We're going to leave you alone now. You look very busy." eek12

I'm like, "Yeah you'd act funny too if you were having to hold your water." mad12

Actually come to think of it, it's quite a good way to get rid of people when you want to be alone. grinch

I don't mean any of you guys obviously. wink12

Have a happy day everyone. urock

Joe, I'm sorry your weekend is over. You have a vacation coming in January don't you?

I have a lot of food to work off so I will be at the club burning calories today. Other than a run with the dogs, I think that covers my day. It's a free day for me, so you can color me happy!

Darlene, I hope your holidays were wonderful. hearts

Have a happy day everyone!

Good morning my friends hearts

Thank you all very much for your good thoughts, prayers and Nan's Band of Angels for my Dad. kissy12 I'am so touched!!
They helped him through the night. He is still attached to a lot of machines and a hundred tubes. Fever still around 40°Celsius. Poor old man! Will keep you updated.

Weather here in Italy is like in autumn: rain, fog,temps in the 60F. We have workmen here to reinforce some more the shutters and the French doors. Next week, January 2nd, I will drive to Tuscany for a 5-days-workshop at a ceramics school (further education). After that: some more workmen for a new alarm device. Busy year ending/busy year beginning. Well, it depends of course how my Dad is doing and whether we have to drive back to Switzerland.

I'am sending sunshine in your hearts, and big bear hugs for all of you. I love my Boomer family muches!

Good Merry Wednesday to everyone.

Not a nice day here.30 predicted with winds 25-30 mph. Nice wind chill. A great day to stay in.

Susie and Vince came over yesterday afternoon and ended up staying for dinner. I did a pretty good job of scrounging up something. Had plenty of hot dogs so I fixed a dish that Susie always liked when she was growing up. Split hot dogs almost all the way through. Pile mashed potatoes on top of one hot dog then layer with cheese. Place another hot dog on top. I put tooth picks into the dogs to keep them from sliding, then bake for about 15 minutes at 350. A quick meal, especially if you use mashed potato flakes. They will be over Sat. for our Christmas.

It is coffee time so guess I'll go fill up my mug that has a picture of Amber and Moxie on it. Bill's cup has Shana when she was a puppy. Gifts from Bill's sis.

Have a great day everyone.

Merry after Christmasday all

Got home last evening and wouldn't you know my tempermental cmptr decided not to work -Well, that's it- when the weather warms up I'm getting something else even if you do mellow out like last time. So....I wiped out everything again and started over and now all essential will have to be reinstalled.

It's so cold, only up to 47 today and I can't even think about tonight. Let's hope the outdoor tomatos make it. I put 2 layers of floating row over them and the sun is waaaarm but air so cold.

Christmas at my son's and DIL's -oh so wonderful. My 2 grandaughters were there so just the 5 of us, kinda small but rewarding to see all again. I watched my son play Halo 4 and they have the biggest TV I've ever seen hooked up to a X-Box. It's so big that when Steve made mistakes I felt like jumping into the game and helping. Everybody needs one of those. It looks like a good game but only plays on X-Box

Keep warm all Safe travelling Good health all

Good morning everyone. santa

I've been cleaning on this mess I call a home. shocked

Having hard wood floors, verses carpeted, makes it impossible to ignore the dirt. lol12

I have a little time to pass before going to work.

I'm going to play URU a little. I played it for ages last night. wink12

I hope you all have a sensational day. rah

My plan is to not move today and see if that makes it better or worse. puppy

Re: Merry Wednesday - 12/26/12 03:55 PM

Rained when it was time to do the morning walk so I decided to drag my walking partner to Wally Mart to buy some new CO alarms. New law starts Jan 1 that I have to provide them to tenants (I already do but I think the others are too old), so I bought them and will distribute on 'rent' day. Should be nice. I already bought them new smoke alarms last month. Hope they are USING them. I might have to do a bit of 'checking' to see that things are working. Hate to impose, but it's the law, and if anything happens, my insurance might not cover it.

So we get to Wally Mart assuming it will be overun with bargain hunters (after Christmas sales) and find an almost empty parking lot, and few people in the store AND NO big sales in progress. Only things on sale for 50% off was Christmas decorations. Weird.

Get home and decide it's not raining now and we walked to the local Mexican joint (just found it after 20 years of never setting foot inside) and it's GREAT food. Wow. Just a 'hole in the wall' and you order at the counter, but they bring it to your table and it's all nicely presented, hot, yummy and has a salsa bar toooo and unlimited drink dispenser. Yummm.

So we sit down and I look outside and it's pouring! We got there just in time. It's about a 10 minute walk from my house with no shelter in between. Finished eating and the sun came out right on cue. Nice.

Now hugging the heater and snuggling a cat who seems to need a snuggle buddy for the winter cold. His brother died this summer and I guess he misses the warm cuddling of another cat. Only two I had left of the indoorsies and now only one left. We keep him company and he's adjusting to being a single cat except for the cold stuff.

Off to play with my new camera. Got some awesome pics of kitties and my house. Neat.

Afternoon; back from town after picking a few groceries.

Having a bit of trouble with my pc overheating and shutting down so need to take it in next week. Should only take a few minutes to fix.

Wishing all a great afternoon/eve/night.

Re: Merry Wednesday - 12/26/12 06:22 PM

Sorta, sounds like a good day. I have to go out tomorrow for errands. I hope the stores are empty then too.

Trippy good luck getting your PC working. wave12

It is sooooooooooo cold! After having to have the windows open for the last few days, it is now cold cold cold. I have pushed the heater up a few times now. Might have to go look for my "hot pants", so named because the only time I can wear them is when it's really really cold.

Time to cook! wave12

Re: Merry Wednesday - 12/26/12 07:08 PM

WEll, I thought I was here today, but I guess not. oops I took down the decorations, cleaned house, walked the dogs in the woods, made a big pot of 7 bean chili that is almost ready and just when I was going to sit and have some me time, I opened my mail and I see I am back in the corner. I wasn't expecting that till after the first because they are in vacation, but I was wrong. rotfl12

How we doing?

Re: Merry Wednesday - 12/26/12 09:14 PM

L4l I got an iPhone 4S. It is really cool. My games I play like Fairway Solitaire go so much faster now!!

If you want cold come on up. lol12 It has been below zero every morning this week when me and Sassy go out and It warms to about 17 then drops again.

Sorta that was nice of the weather to cooperate like that for your walk. lol12

Well, Ana, at least you were able to enjoy some of the day!! Hope this one goes quickly for ya!!

The taxi is home and parked. Had a good time.

Re: Merry Wednesday - 12/26/12 09:35 PM

Ana, I hope the corner is at least fun!

Nan, I would truly perish up there I think..or perhaps I'd just have to learn to dress more socks and long sleeves and pants instead of shorts. Course it helped when hubby told me all the heating vents in the den were shut (there are up high behind furniture, so I couldn't see them.) It is still cold but not freezing! rotfl12
