FUN MONDAY - Collecting collections

THIS WEEK'S FUN MONDAY HOST: The every popular Mariposa's Tales

~THE ASSIGMENT ~So on Monday, I want to see your collection. If you don't have or don't want or CAN'T (wink) show us a picture, then tell us what the collection is in 10 words or less. Then tell us why you started collecting it.


  • Well there is that my assortment of assorted Tupperware, gladware, cool whip container, etc lids. Not the bowls just the lid lots and lots lids. Sadly my sister keeps thinking that the lid is of no use and keep thinning up my collection. Picture after a recent weeding of matchless lids.

  • Than there is the shopping bag collection, but than again then are just recycled as doggie dodo pickuper, or trash bags so does that count as a collection. Besides the goal is to never have more than twenty. And the canvas bag is use for shopping.
  • There are all those dry pens and broken pencils. Oh yea my sister trade them out 10 for 1 and took them all away for a pack on new ones. I told here the new ones had no character and I was planning an art project with all those old writing implements. She said “liar liar pants on fire”, and took them away.
  • So that leave my miss matched socks, the sister hasn’t found them yet, beside I only get one type and color of socks so the mate of one pretty much match another. What can I say, my socks are swingers.

  • Only items left are my single ear rings, I have lots and lots of single ear rings, but they are still in a box from my last move so no picture of my lovely single ear ring tree.

FUN MONDAY - What A Jerk

~THIS WEEK'S FUN MONDAY HOST: The ever expressive Sauntering Soul.

~THE ASSIGMENT ~I know we all try to be sweet and kind to people the majority of the time. But let's face it....we also know that sometimes we can be a big jerk. It could be that you experience road rage from time to time. Perhaps you empty the coffee pot at work some mornings and don't feel like taking the time to start a new pot for the next person. Or maybe you don't return phone calls on a timely basis when you know someone needs a response from you. Have you ever "accidentally" ruined a favorite shirt of your spouse just because you didn't care for it? Come on - it's confession time! List the small things you do that make you a jerk and elaborate just a bit on each one. Please tell me I'm not the only jerk around here!

This one was way too easy I have so many but I’ll stick to just three:
I dislike children - while I would never hurt a child and I tolerate those of my friends and family I do not like them. Yes I’m the Jerk who in my best dog training voice who will tell a bratty kid to “settle down” or “your mother said SIT” as Mommy dearest is try to compromise with the little darling. If asked I will say it is because they and noise, sticky and demand attention. Truth is I think we are too much alike and for reasons unknown to me they seem to be attracted to me. I do not want children (I have dogs, I like dogs) You should never leave me along with you children and a roll of duct tape)
Sarcastic - yep that’s me ‘good glory’ even in my blogs the sarcasms drip through Note; “Mommy dearest is try to compromise with the little darling” So I’m a Sarcastic Jerk.
To the point that I will say “that nice” when I’m thinking “you stupid twit …..” This is an inside joke with friend and family.

Not sure why but I’m the Jerk who takes a penny and doesn’t leave one.

Happy Mother's Day

Ok it is official I am my Mother's Child. This is just one of many confermations of that fact.

Last week we had a few people over to watch the run for the roses (I'm still a little dismayed by the death of the only filly in the race). It was last minute so I pick up KFC and needless to say too much. The Old one and I had left overs for most of the week. Well yesterday I found the box containing the week old biscuits. Any normal person would have just thrown those little hockey pucks out, or broke them up for the birds. I slice them thin (you can only do this once they are hard) dipped them in egg and made country style french toast. Served with OJ, beacon, and topped with peanut butter and maple syrup. It was very tasty, and filling. All but one small round was eaten and that Scruff was more than happy to finish off, cause a dogs got to have a treat every now and again.

~THIS WEEK'S FUN MONDAY HOST: The sweeten and spunky KITTEN .

~THE ASSIGMENT ~Tell me about the Super Hero in your life. Not from TV, but anyone that has been or is in your life that you have really looked up to or has made a impact on your life. It can one or many. You can share pictures if you like. Just have fun with it.

My Hero

Just funning

While I would have love to take my time
And write to you all lovely rhyme
Of the man who means the world to me
And thought me not by words but by deed
The measure of a man is not how he handles sunshine
But how he handles the rain
This story will have to wait
Till some night when it is not quite so late.
