M is for Mom


You and Your Mom Are Completely Different

At times, it seems like you and your mom aren’t even related.You often wonder how two people from the same family can be so different.

As the saying goes… you can pick your friends, but not your relatives.

This is so true! Picture is a little harsh-lol!

Hump Day Humor: Eighth Edition

Theme: Taxes/Tax Time

A Letter to the IRS

Dear Internal Revenue Service:

Enclosed you will find my 2006 tax return showing that I owe
$3,407.00 in taxes. Please note the attached article from the USA
Today newspaper, dated 12 November, wherein you will see the
Pentagon (Department of Defense) is paying
$171.50 per hammer and NASA has paid $600.00 per toilet seat.

I am enclosing four (4) toilet seats (valued @ $2,400) and six
(6) hammers valued @ $1,029), which I secured at Home Depot,
bringing my total remittance to $3,429.00. Please apply the
overpayment of $22.00 to the “Presidential Election Fund,” as
noted on my return. You can do this inexpensively by sending them
one (1) 1.5″ Phillips Head screw (see aforementioned article from
USA Today newspaper detailing how H.U.D. pays $22.00 each for
1.5″ Phillips Head Screws). One screw is enclosed for your
convenience.

It has been a pleasure to pay my tax bill this year, and I look
forward to paying it again next year.

Sincerely,

A Satisfied Taxpayer

You are easygoing and pretty simple to please. You don’t put up a fuss… ever.

You can be quite silly at times, but you know when to buckle down and be serious. Like waiting until the last minute to do my taxes-lol-last night

Intense and energetic, you aren’t completely happy unless you are bouncing off the walls. LOL

You’re addicted to caffeine. There’s no denying it. That is the truth

You are responsible, mature, and truly an adult. You’re occasionally playful, but you find it hard to be carefree.

You are sophisticated and daring, but you are never snobby.

Letters~Alphabet~NaBloPoMo

What walks on four legs, runs in a 1, 150-mile race, detects bombs, tracks, bad guys, and still enjoys an afternoon of chasing Frisbees? It’s Canis familiaris, otherwise know as the dog. Whether a mutt or purebred, the domestic dog has been part of human society for thousands of years. W is for Woof: A Dog Alphabet offers a canine course through simple rhymes accompanied by informative, entertaining sidebar text. Subject matter includes behavior, obedience, training, grooming, and health care. After reading W is for Woof, you will have a better understanding of what makes “Rover” tick from the top of his head to the tip of his tail.

W is for Woof: A Dog Alphabet

Written by Ruther Strother

Illustrated by Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen

I am participating in NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month-is now going on every month) for the month of April. The theme is letters.

I will be reading this book to my Kindergarten class. We will start when we return from Spring Break and will read one letter a day. This book will go along with our Service Learning Project which will also start after Spring Break. We (Kindergarten) will be learning about animals & pets and we will have a guest speaker from the two local animal shelters visit us. Then we are going to make posters to put around the school and in the surrounding community asking for donations for the Animal Shelters.
I thought about sharing the book here on my blog one letter a day, but I wasn’t sure about copyright laws and such. I really wanted to do this, but now I think I have changed my mind. Now I have decided to do Blogthings Alphabet-Style. You know how I like to play games-lol! Do you have any input, thoughts, or ideas for me? Edited: I am doing Blogthings-I have already found all but 1 letter-lol.

~Out of the Mouths of Babes~

Birds & Bees

Email Forward

A little girl asked her Mom, “Mom, may I take the dog for a walk around the block”? Mom replies, “No, because she is in heat”.

”What’s that mean”? asked the child.

“Go ask your father. I think he’s in the garage”.

The little girl goes to the garage and says, “Dad, may I take Belle for a walk around the block? I asked Mom, but she said the dog was in heat, and to come to you”.

Dad said, “Bring Belle over here”. He took a rag, soaked it with gasoline, and scrubbed the dog’s backside with it to disguise the scent, and said
“OK, you can go now, but keep Belle on the leash and only go one time round the block”.

The little girl left and returned a few minutes later with no dog on the leash. Surprised, Dad asked, “Where’s Belle”?

( YOU’RE GONNA LOVE THIS!!!!!!!!! )

The little girl said, “She ran out of gas about halfway down the block, so another dog is pushing her home”.

If you ain’t laffin’..
You ain’t livin’!

Things That Need Fixin’ Up Around Here

Ten on Tuesday #6

10 Things I Would Fix In My Home

(if I had the time and money…and I owned the house-lol)

  1. No carpet. I would remove all of the carpet in this house and have wood floors. I’ve had both and no carpet is much more sanitary-especially with pets.
  2. Electricity: The electrical outlets in this house need some major updating-I believe it is the original and I only have 2 outlets that include the 3 prong plug-great!
  3. Even floor: I believe the house has settled-duh!The floors sink in at places and need to be leveled.
  4. Drapes: I need some major window treatments (drapes, curtains, and valences) for the whole house. I just can’t bring myself to do it here.
  5. Trees: I wish I could cut down the 2 apple trees, the 2 pine trees, and the walnut tree. The stuff I have to pick up is such a hassle and the apples don’t turn out good anyway. I have plenty of other trees all over the yard. I like trees that are beautiful and only produce leaves that fall-lol!
  6. Outside: I have 1 and a 1/2 acres and I would love to have my back yard fenced in. Patch, my 11 year old dalmatian, would love this too.
  7. Multicolored walls: The walls in this house are multicolored shades of white, off white…The whole house needs to be re-painted professionally. Not paint here and there and plaster there and here-aahhhh!
  8. Open/Shut Doors: The whole house needs new doors to the rooms. The door handles are not secure and you might shut a door and never get back in-hehe. Plus the doors are the original and are tearing/pealing off which can cause splinters or be a danger for my dog, Patch.
  9. Vinyl Floor: My kitchen floor is the original 1970’s yellow floor, I’m sure of it. It has torn places everywhere and you can see the concrete directly underneath. My favorite color is yellow-but when I see my floor-I wanna barf-hehe! I need a new kitchen floor!
  10. Earth: The earth/ground outside needs leveling and holes need filled. It is a danger zone in many spots. I just avoid those places, because my feet don’t work well on stairs or in holes.

My house is really a great house for the price compared to most in my area, but this sums up what I really need to do: NEED TO MOVE!
