WHAT, y'all have a party with out me!!!!
Don't you guys sleep.
Have you even payed attention to your families today!

I read where one of your kids asked for at least a sticker after her exam. FUNNY
That made me think of a e-mail I got. This is for older kids/Adults with a great sense of humor!

Funny thing to ask the GI DURING your scope:

1. Take it easy Doc.. You're boldly going where no man has gone before.

2. 'Find Amelia Earhart yet?'

3. 'Can you hear me NOW?'

4. 'Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?'

5. 'You know, in Arkansas , we're now legally married.'

6. 'Any sign of the trapped miners, Chief?'

7. 'You put your left hand in, you take your left hand out...'

8. 'Hey! Now I know how a Muppet feels!'

9. 'If your hand doesn't fit, you must quit!'

10. 'Hey Doc, let me know if you find my dignity.'

11. 'You used to be an executive at Enron, didn't you?'


And the best one of all:
12. 'Could you write a note for my wife saying that my head is not up there?'


LMAO this is fantastic!!

Barns...haha I won't go in them...the residents scare me.

Getting in the car at 6 a.m. with the two younger girls and two dogs (one of them a 60 pound greyhound the other a psychotic Catahoula) and going to West Virginia to pick up Gaby from her mission work (she is roofing houses - I can't get her to put her dish in the sink and she is roofing complete strangers houses!!!). After that driving to Florida to see my parents for a few days, then off to West Palm Beach for a week just the immediate fam, then back to rents to see them brother, sil and nieces then drive home.

I am packing the Prednisone to ward off the evil Crohns spirits! You know the drill...if you have it you won't need it.

I HATE packing...still don't have one thing in a bag! I am pathetic...not a word Farmwife!

Sascot-
I'm glad you got a good laugh!
But just to warn you the Tooth Fairy can cause problems in your home.
That's right!!! The Tooth Fairy visited my little sister one night.
She came down the stars shouting for joy!
It seemed the Tooth Fairy left her a hundred dollar bill.
My Daddy was so MAD at that Tooth Fairy
We then had to put our tooths into glass jars by the sink

However, that bill magical turned into a 1 dollar bill by the next morning!

The moral of the story...Don't mix up money in the middle of the night!

Lol thanks I needed that. We don't say eh or fair dinghum in Michigan... You just get a lot of WTF from here. We are the worst economy, cheapest housing in all of the USA, and not to mention the downfall of the big 3. We think and type WTF more than anyone else in the world I think.

If I actually lol'ed in real life as much as I lol'ed on the Internet people would think I were a bit nuts. Just saying

Ok, I have few minutes to right about the true country art of cow tippin.

Cow tippin is simply to walk up to a cow that's sleeping in the upright position and push over until the animal falls.

Thing to consider when cow tippin.
1- Alcohol should never be involved before or during this event!
2- Night time is the best for this. Cow's can't see you coming.
3- Walk quietly. They mat not see you but they might hear you. Getting killed in a stampede is not the way to go.
4- Make sure the bull is not present at this time. They will charge you and will not stop if your screaming for you life
5- Approach the cows only.
6- Push on their sides quickly and swiftly.

Words of warning!!!!
1-Trespassing is illegal. The cops will not think this is cute.
2 After pushing cow over. Their is a chance she might brake and or injure something. You will get fined if caught.
3- Their is a chance of injury to you from being shoot by a farmer.
NOT because we're MEAN, but because we figure you are to stupid to live!!!!!!!

Im not a big fan of watching sports either, but I do have a soft spot for the Olympics, and tennis in general. Gab and Austin have played nearly their entire lives

No bursting of any bubbles here..I won't watch sports with my husband due to his non-stop screaming at the tv thinking they can actually hear him coach !

You ought to hear some of the parents at our 'kids' soccer and hockey games!


Farmwife - I bet you'd be watching the tv if Cow-tipping was an olympic sports! And, thank god Emily no longer rides - all those Saturdays I thought she was safe and sound, doing 'healthy' activities at the barn and, now I learn, she was actually cow-tipping!

Catharine - hope the coach is moving along and you weren't too badly delayed!
