Here is a short story I just must pass on. I normally don't talk about my family to much on here just maybe some thing like the dinner we went to the other night but this is funny to me and I hope you can get a chuckle out of it to.
My parents have left town for the winter as they do every winter. They left last Thursday, On Saturday they called and asked if I would go over and shut the water valve off under the kitchen sink and pick up some food items they forgot to give me before they left. No big deal and they would sleep better knowing that the water valve was off so when they went to have the water turned back on it would not leak. So I did and I called them as I was leaving to let then know it was all taken care of. End of story right?.... Wrong.
Monday Morning my phone rings its my mother. And she says "I'm having an argument with your father and need your help" Okay for those of you who don't know my mom and dad they don't argue dad is smart he just gives in. So I chuckle a bit and ask what I could do to resolve this "Argument" She then asks me to go back to her house and measure her love seat?. I'm like "um why do you want me to do that?". She then tells me that they are talking about switching the one in the couch for the one in the house and that dad thinks its to tall and will block the window. So I go all the way over there and do this and call with the results. Mom is happy she won, they can now switch them out.
Here is the funny part. I had to go over and do this in November.... They will not be home in tell April to do the switch.............
Here is what I know about JAG. now I have never even seen a picture of her, so that is why I always tell my family that she is the best looking woman I have never seen. I think of that young lady as a good friend and that is why I stalk her.
1. She has red hair... my favorite color
2. She has green eyes
3. she is 5'1 and a 1/2... (just found that out today)
4. She has a great kid with a funny name (Tween)
5. Her mother is a wonderful human and should be given the key to Texas.
6. She really likes her boob's
7. She really loves the color...hummm what color was that again?
8. She really does care for us fellow bloggers
9. She is in love with me but does not know it yet (and don't you tell her)
10. She really knows her football, Now that's a woman after my heart!!!
We all love you JAG and the three post today do make up for this week.
What a nice place for a family get together, and when it is a family like mine there is always plenty of story's, and always plenty of laughter. I just wish my two sisters and one other brother could of been here to make it complete.
Now I know what your thinking but no farm animals were harmed by my meal!
This was my dessert, YUMMY
Ali's aunt and uncle Pat and Dave. First time I had met them but they are some really nice people.
Ali's mother Elizabeth is in pink there in the middle.
My brother Rick is at the far end Left, his wife Ali across from him and my nephew Taylor front right.
That is Ali bottom left (my sister in law) The young lady in red is my Mother. The old man at the far end on the right is my Father.
Goin' to have a get together today with mom and dad, my brother and his wife and a few others. Its the last chance to do so for about 6 months as my parents will be heading south tomorrow. The only real benefit to them heading down there is my fridge gets well stocked. I'm going to try to get some pictures of us to night but some are party poppers. I may just have to get help from the big boss and have her order it! My mother still commands the house even at 74.
Guess what there is a contest going on over at my ask me blog. Do you like the pictures you see here, I mean just look at that Wood duck such a pretty bird. And how about that great action shot of the mallard in the other photo... now get you butt over there and vote... and you have already missed one days set, but you can still vote.
Yesterday I went to the park to take pictures of birds nest. I was also looking for any other thing that was picture worthy of course. the only four legged thing I seen besides dogs was the guy you see above. All the Golden Mantles and Chipmunks have gone away to there holes and wont be seen again in tell spring. So you are left with just a tree rat as my brother calls the grey squirrel you see here.
That's right the end is here, all the leaves have turned from green to brown, yellow and orange, then fall from the tree's all together. and the only thing left in the tree's are one of natures little gifts. I don't know why I enjoy these so but I do and I go out every year and try to capture as many as I can. here are some of the better shots I got from side 1 of the park. I hope you enjoy them as I do.
Here is my beautiful niece and I with our new smiles, it is the first time we have seen each other sense I got my dentures and she got her braces removed so we got together on Halloween and did some big cheese pictures.
No I'm not talking about the vote, I'm talking about the blog. Which is more important anyway....right? My ask me why blog has had a name change! It shall now be called....................................... ASK ME, ASK YOU, WHO KNEW Kind of catchy isn't it. It is still going through some changes in my head and I will be working on it as I can find the time. So drop in and have a look although today wont be much.....at least in tell something really happens. not much is going on in the world on the first Tuesday in November.....right?
Midlife slices gave me this award! (she has the best taste really)
If you haven't been by to see her well you are just missing out on some good reading. I am a big fan of hers.....But no JAG not yet stalking .... she has a man.
And like with most awards on here you must pass the love around, and this one must go to 7 others. and like I normally do I'm putting a twist in mine. I'm giving one away to an un-known blogger, One I can't give the address out to. You will just have to trust me that TGT really is some one. In fact I'm telling you I love TGT like a brother or a sister. So here are my 7.
#1, Goes to TGT
now all the rest of these and midlife slices can all be found to the right on my blog roll....( No I can't do the link thing yet )
#2 Goes to some one I am stalking... JAGOver at Just A Girl. (she loves pink)
#3 Goes to Practically Joe over at Practically Wisdom he is quite wise really read today's post and you will agree.
#4 Giggles for both her blogs. she is about to pop and then there will be all kinds of posts coming from her.
#5 Now for the next few I jump the pond...Clare at Flipping out with Clare gets # 5 she is such a great person. Get well soon from YVBAF. Yeah you guys may not get that last part but she does and that's what counts.

Now this last one goes to a blogger I don't think any of you know about. But those of you who are reading my new blog "What ever I want" will know something about him.
#7 goes to Jeff over at gtos and dogs, to say he has been a life long Friend would be an insult. He was the best man at my wedding (well one of them any way) and is my daughters god father. Do me and your self a favor and check him out....he just another boy in Texas but hes a good boy....lol sorry ffej.
