Terrific Tuesday's - 09/23/13 11:29 PM

Millions long for immortality who don't know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon.
Susan Ertz, Anger in the Sky

Little Red Riding Hood is skipping down the road when she sees the Big Bad Wolf crouched down behind a log.

"My what big eyes you have, Mr. Wolf," says Little Red Riding Hood.

The surprised wolf jumps up and runs away. Further down the road Little Red Riding Hood sees the wolf again, this time he is crouched behind a tree stump.

"My what big ears you have Mr. Wolf," says Little Red Riding Hood.

Again the foiled wolf jumps up and runs away. About 2 miles down the road, Little Red Riding Hood sees the wolf again, this time crouched down behind a road sign. "My what big teeth you have Mr. Wolf," taunts Little Red Riding Hood.

With that the Big Bad Wolf jumps up and screams, " For Chrissakes!! Get lost! Can't a wolf relieve himself in privacy anymore??"

Grandpa and granddaugher were sitting talking when she asked, "Did God make you, Grandpa?"
"Yes, God made me," the grandfather answered. A few minutes later, the little girl asked him, "Did God make me too?"
"Yes, He did," the older man answered. For a few minutes, the little girl seemed to be studying her grandpa, as well as her own reflection in the mirror, while her grandfather wondered what was running through her mind. At last she spoke up. "You know, Grandpa," she said, "God's doing a lot better job lately."

Little Tommy was doing very badly in math. His parents had tried everything; tutors, flash cards, special learning centers, in short, everything they could think of. Finally in a last ditch effort, they took Tommy down and enrolled him in the local Catholic School.

After the first day, little Tommy comes home with a very serious look on his face. He doesn't kiss his mother hello. Instead, he goes straight to his room & starts studying. Books & papers are spread out all over the room and little Tommy is hard at work. His mother is amazed. She calls him down to dinner and to her shock, the minute he is done he marches back to his room without a word and in no time he is back hitting the books as hard as before. This goes on for sometime, day after day while the mother tries to understand what made all the difference.

Finally, little Tommy brings home his report card. He quietly lays it on the table and goes up to his room and hits the books. With great trepidation, his mom looks at it and to her surprise, little Tommy got an A in math. She can no longer hold her curiosity. She goes to his room and says: "Son, what was it? Was it the nuns?"

Little Tommy looks at her and shakes his head "No".

"Well then", she replies, "was it the books, the discipline, the structure, the uniforms, WHAT was it?".

Little Tommy looks at her and says, "Well, on the first day of school, when I saw that guy nailed to the plus sign, I knew they weren't fooling around.

A mother took her little boy to church.

While in church the little boy said, "Mommy, I have to pee."

The mother said to the little boy, "It's not appropriate to say the word 'pee' in church. So, from now on whenever you have to 'pee' just tell me that you have to 'whisper'."

The following Sunday, the little boy went to church with his Father and during the service said to his father, "Daddy, I have to whisper."

The Father looked at him and said, "Okay, just whisper in my ear."

The little boy greeted his grandmother with a hug and said, "I'm so happy to see you grandma. Now maybe daddy will do the trick he has been promising us."

The grandmother was curious.

"What trick is that my dear?" she asked.

The little boy replied, "I heard daddy tell mommy that he would climb the walls if you came to visit us again."

A little girl came home from school and said to her mother, "Mommy, today in school I was punished for something that I didn't do."

The mother exclaimed, "But that's terrible! I'm going to have a talk with your teacher about this ... by the way, what was it that you didn't do?"

The little girl replied, "My homework."

Good morning everyboomie. welcome

Some time today, while my love is away,
I'll let down my hair, and I'll go out and play.
I'll run in the sunshine where butterflies roam,
and when the day's over I'll run on back home.

Except that I don't have a "love" per say, so I'll have to sub someone else like......um......my sister. rolleyes

Not that she's my love, ok? UGH NO!! shame

I'll just go out and play while she's away......at work. duh

I don't really have that much hair to let down either, so don't expect me to do a literal interpretation of the poem. slapforehead

I don't like running. There's way too much running going on there. It drains me to run in the sun, and the sun is hard on my complexion anyway. shocked

I do like playing however, a lot. I don't have much to play outside, so I'll probably just play inside with my computer.....on the couch.

It'll be a cool day. cool

I hope yours is cool as well. thumbsup

Ana may the corner move right along for you today! Have a fun run in the hills with the dogs!!

Haroula have a lovely day!

Connie have a fun day what ever pops up!! Thanks for the treats. Yummmmmy!!

Gail what fun things ya got planned for today? Have a lovely day and a nice walk with the dogs.

Darlene may work go smoothly today!! Have a lovely day!

Thyough that might be good cause when i was walking with Sassy the city trucks were at the park and they were tking things down. I stopped to chat and they said there was some gtant money so we are getting a new park!!! happydance Fun, fun!!

Fun day. Waiting for my bedroom rug to arrive (coming from Pennsylvania). Hope it's what I wanted and of good quality and the right color. Fingers crossed.

So my tenant comes up and righs the back doorbell. She has brought me a nice cutting (planted and growing) of her 'trumpet plant'. She has the greenest HANDS. So in the midst of her chatting and me listening my phone rings. I ignore that but was hoping it wasn't the roofer who is going to get me someone to install a new water heater.

Soooo THEN the doorbell rings! Gads. Could be the FedEX guy with my rug. I apologize to tenant, rush to the door and it's my yard kid. He is here to do some little stuff for me.

I'm then outside with him and the PHONE rings again. Ugh. Rush in and it's some telemarketer who calls daily. Hang on her in mid 'pitch' and then out to the yard kid again to make sure he's not doing anything awful.

PHONE again! Rush in, nobody on the other end. Hate that but it happens about 5 times a day lately. Sometimes the same number finally talks to me and it's that stupid "Your Microsoft Windows has alerted us to a virus" guy from somewhere in the world. Can hardly understand his accent. Last time I finally told him I didn't have a computer which confused him a lot. Next time it was a girl calling. Can't escape them.

So now everything's calm, no FedEx with my rug, yard kid gone, mail man has delivered bills, and now I wait for rug. Can't go anywhere and still waiting for guy to call about the water heater. Dunno when he will do that, but it's always a waiting game. Willing to do that for the PRICE. Total charge for the whole yank out and in new one (I pay for all supplies) is 150. Can't beat that one unless you have a family member who is a plumber. I'll wait.

Hurry up FedEx!!

I threw on my clothes and put Baby in the truck and headed out.

We spent till 1:00, and left there hot, thirsty, and empty handed. frown

Now I'm getting ready for a very early day tomorrow. razz

Awww Joe, sorry you didn't find any arrows, but on the plus side, you got your exercise for the day :o)

It's raining cats, dogs, and monkeys out there right now. Keoki is under my desk which means there is no where for my legs to go.

I am looking forward to NCIS...can't believe Ziva is leaving and really hope they don't kill her off. wave

Re: Terrific Tuesday's - 09/24/13 09:32 PM

L4L I'm hoping the same. I really don't want Ziva to die.

See you all tomorrow. I have the day off so I won't be up too early.

Tonight I worked for the Blisses. Didn't have a good night though. I got yelled at for not preparing the meal as Mike wanted me too. We are at odds with how he wants me to cook their meal and how I want to prepare it. He watches me like a hawk. We don't agree on how to cook. My patient is so kind. She doesn't argue at all. But he's another story. If I don't do exactly as he wants me to he gets angry. I told him to Sh-h-h-h-h, but that didn't go over too well. He started to scream at me. Whew! It wasn't pretty. I'm not afraid of him but he shut me up right quick. I was very quiet for the rest of the night. By the end of my shift he did apologize to me but the damage was done. He took the wind out of my sails. I told him that I can't handle him watching me every second while I'm in the kitchen. Well enough venting.

I hope you all had a better night than I did. sad
