Moving Day Diner - 01/18/13 11:03 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!"

Take him to the pet cemetary. puppy

Good morning everyboomie. wave

Welcome to the weekend! yay

It's moving day. I expect you all here by 8:00 sharp. razz

My excitement about moving back to the house in the woods, by the creek, with my Baby, is tempered with a little vinegar.

It IS the house where my sister lives. rolleyes

It's almost like sharing a bathroom with a........... think....orangutan.

Just kidding... lol





Actually my helper is expecting me there to pick him up early early. There's just no rest for the wicked it seems. evil

Have a happy day everyone.

Re: Moving Day Diner - 01/19/13 12:08 PM

Super Saturday ya'll

We have a hallway full of wood so hubby and I will be out looking for stain for it. Hopefully, we can start staining today.

We also need to dig out our wood splitter and remind ourselves how to use it so it's easier to have fires while it is cold.

Son has decided the den is too cluttered and is cleaning happydance

Back later wave

Hi Boomers! Haven't been here much as life dictates differently right now. MIL is coming along but has so very far to go. My own Mum also takes up a lot of my time. Been wicked cold here on this usually temperate coast for over two weeks getting down to 27* several times in the early AM's. Southern Cali is sounding really nice to me. Off I go. Happy Gaming everyone!! wave

Found a friend that I haven't "talked" to in over 40 years; it was such a surprise.
Have things to do before a pool tourney this eve so wish all a great day.

We are back from errands. Now time to start the bed projects. Son has left for a little bit to take the kids to the park. It is a gorgeous skies, bright sun, temps in the 50's with no wind. It could be like this every day and I would love it!

I am enjoying a late cup of coffee while hubby reacquaints himself with the log splitter.

Re: Moving Day Diner - 01/19/13 05:16 PM

Night, Haroula, sleep well sleep

Nan, we decided to just go with a sealer to let the color of the bed shine through. It's spruce so it's very light. I am a big fan of natural wood....not so much a fan of plastic or metallic. To each their own.

We also got some chalkboard paint to use on the cubby area underneath each loft.

We just finished moving the "beds" from the front hall to the the dining room...750 lbs....and then unpacking one loft to be sure of what we had. Then, cos our backs and feet weren't hurting enough, we decided to split some firewood. So we hauled and split a bit of that, and then I cried "Uncle!" The ole bod will only do so much in one day.

Skywalker is in doggie heaven. He thinks all the firewood is his to chew on, and is absolutely fixated on hubby's work gloves. I can see much time will be spent in his "collar of shame."

We have a date with son to watch "The Two Towers" beside a nice big fire tonight. He said his "friend" may come over with her 2 tonight but that she is not staying for the movie.

Time to sit and sip and let my back unkink. puppy

Re: Moving Day Diner - 01/19/13 07:49 PM

Hello everybody. wave

Everything went very smooth with the move, thanks to all your warm fuzzy vibes. thumbsup

I got up at 6:30 and ate breakfast, and then sat down with my coffee and tried to get on line, but they had already set up the transfer with my internet and I could not get on line, so I got up and loaded up my truck with my receivers, TV, computer, router, & modem and headed over here.

The DISH tech arrived at about 8:15. shocked

I was shocked to say the least. wink

I went and got my helper, and a truck, and we moved everything in two trips. We had it all moved by 2:00, returned the truck, got a cheeseburger for lunch, and then I took my helper home, and I spent the rest of the day unpacking, and went back over to the old place and started cleaning it. I'll go back and finish it tomorrow. yes

I had Baby with me for the whole thing. She was so excited. puppy

I hope everyone had a great day.

Ana congrats on getting your ride back. bravo

L4L if you wanted more to do you could have come over. wink

Re: Moving Day Diner - 01/19/13 10:24 PM

Joe , how wonderful for you it is done and finished - that was quick.!

Nan , Ana - i just found out about the opening yesterday , so i go to look at and approve the unit on the 28th - i explained i needed to talk with my present landlord also , so it may be the middle of next month before i actually start taking stuff over .
The present person is still there , and then they have to clean it and stuff.
Plus it takes a bit to switch over utilities and internet here, so i'm guessing not before the middle ,possibly later next month.
But it will be nice being so close to Mom ,at her age .Plus my nephew's family ,and my son are on the other side of town !
On a lighter note ,I went to the store today , and the cashier thought i cut myself , because i had red ink all over my face...had it on my fingers from an art project , and must have touched my face without knowing -looked odd , to say the least !
Well , see you all later ! Stay warm ,and be happy !

Re: Moving Day Diner - 01/19/13 11:10 PM

Nan, it was 53 where we we picked up the truck today and 48 here but the wind is crazy strong. It's going down to 9 degrees tonight. A high of 7 on Monday. lol No wonder my poor heads is pounding. It can't keep up with the barometric changes.
Poor Sassy, does she wear a coat?

Niteowl, too funny on the paint! One of these days you'll have to send me some pictures.
