    I want to share with you something cute . Yesterday we had rain here. I observed a little girl who was walking down the sidewalk holding a big pink umbrella over herself AND her pregnant black and white dog There they were walking side by side at the same pace. It was Lizzie and she said " Grandma, I've got to take good care of her and not let her catch a cold . She's pwregnut. ":rainbow:

    That is cute!

    My sister in law (Diane) and her mother (Edna) had babies 6 weeks apart, meaning the niece (Michelle) was older than the aunty (Amanda). They both went to playgroup, nursery, school etc together. One day the teacher was asking all the children what their mom's name was. Michelle quickly answered "Diane", but Amanda said her mom was called "mommy". The teacher asked her again, but again she said "it's mommy". Michelle shouted "miss, miss, I know". "Go on then Michelle" she said "what's Amada's mommy's name". "Nanny" she replied.

    The funniest thing my grandson said was, when our son ask him one day while they were at a fast food restaurant, if he'd like to have a baby sister, when my daughter-in-law was pregnant with our little granddaughter, ..he said "no, I'd rather have some more french fries instead". He was 3yrs. old at the time, I think he'd still like to trade her for an order of fries.

    Well, I came into this thread in the first place because of the title and the fact that the last post was from CC. LOL

    Lets see. Hmmm, I lived in a co-housing community in California and one of the kids there was named Kelsea. She was three at the time. She came out of a store that was located in the same parking lot as a rather famous discount chain we have here called Kmart. She came out of the store she was in, with her Daddy by her side, and stopped dead in her tracks, eyes-wide and gasped: *That's the biggest K I've ever seen!* None of us looked at the Kmart sign with that adult dulled sense of wonder ever again. In fact, we all started saying *that's the biggest K I've ever seen" about lots of other mundane things that are actually amazing.

    I was tuning a piano in a school hall in the good ole days when you were allowed to smack naughty brats. I could feel eyes boring into me but ignored them lest I get dragged into a long involved conversation (Oo are you, wossat, why you doin that, wot appens if I press that, type of thing). Eventually a nose and pair of eyes materialised over the cheek of the piano and a disembodied voice said 'If Mrs Thompson catches you she'll smack your legs.' I risked it; she didn't catch me OR smack my legs.

    Vicki, " Tell us something cute that you said or you heard , Please.Kate, how old are Michelle and Amanda now and do they still do alot of things together. ?There used to be lots of kids who had nieces and nephews the same age or older than themselves but not so many around here lately with all the birth control ( in the last decades ). Lynn and C.C I have not met too many boys who have not said they would rather have something other than a little sister. Diane, Kelsey was really smart to know her letters and I'll bet you think of her everytime you pass a Kmart ( which are now owned by Sears .. which I just read yesterday may soon be gobbled up by Walmart )Chief, I can just picture that kid telling you that Mrs. Thompson was going to smack your legs and the look on Mrs. Thompson when you smacked her back. :boogie:

    Vicki, I love snow. It makes everything so quiet and serene. Pure white. I miss the snow since moving to Mississippi. My little grandkids have never seen snow. The most treasured picture I own is of my dad, my brother , and I building a snowman together almost 50 years ago. My dad is gone now and there will come a time when either my brother or I will be the only one left to remember that day. Neither of us are in the greatest of health , sad to say. I just remembered something cute my brother said when he was tiny. My dad was going to town ( I was at my grandparents' store for a visit) and Dad asked Billy what he wanted from the store ..... candy, icecream , maybe some juice . My brother said " I want Nan- Nan !!!! " Dad said , " So Billy , you want a banana ? " "No, me want my Nan-Nan " and Billy went and got my picture from the dresser and pointed to me. He was trying to say Jan-Jan. He wanted Dad to go to my grandparents' store and pick me up to come home.

    Diane, I was born in Marianna, Arkansas, which is in the eastern part of the state and I lived there until going to college in Conway, Arkansas , close to Little Rock , then got married four years later and moved to Helena, Arkansas for 14 years. Helena is right on the Mississippi River and is home to lots of Blues. Since 1995, we have lived in Mississippi. Mom still lives around Marianna ( about 150 miles from me ) . My brother lives in the Ozark Mountains and is area supervisor for 14 county Health Departments. He has had some accidents and is not doing well. He broke bones in his foot and they are not mending properly and then on his commute to work a bunch of ducks flew into his windshield and blocked his vision and caused him to go off a mountainside. He and his wife are raising her 18 month old niece and are in the process of adopting her. My sister lives in another area in Arkansas which is close to Missouri . So I'm an Arkansas girl living in Mississippi.

    No, I never met either Clinton even though my sister-in -law graduated high school with Bill and one of the boys I graduated high school with was Hillary's law partner at Rose Law Firm and the Clintons used to attend parties at one of my neighbors' home in Helena. I did know Gov. Win Rockefeller and his son back in my teen years. My uncle and grandfather were campaign managers for him and my uncle was an alternate delegate to the 1968 Republican Convention , I gave Gov. Rockefeller one of my senior pictures from H. S. and he put it in a little silver frame and it sat on his desk in the governor's office. I went to one of his son's parties but it was a bit too wild .

    Wild in it was the late 1960s, during the height of LSD , free love ,etc. and there was enough at that party that I was uncomfortable. There were over 100 kids there and most were like me ... there for the food, music, to visit and see the ranch or the antique cars. Winnie was a very nice young man , as far as I ever knew , but had friends of all types. I was there only because my family was invoved in the campaign.

    Keeper of the hens

    Apparantly when i was in Reception (roughly 5 years old) the teacher was talking about a man and a woman getting married, and i stood up and said that men could get married to men, and women could get married to women too...sadly at the time i was wrong :-\ Anyway the teacher told me that that was incorrect, and that relationships like that were also wrong. I went home and passed this on to my mum, and she was furious and went to the school and complained :D

    When my son was in pre-school he told the class that he was going to be a gynocologist when he grew up and then went on to say , " That's a P^^^^Y doctor. " I do not know who taught him that since he was a very sheltered little boy. My face was really red when the teacher called me in about what he said.

    That is funny now for you and the others to remember now but I bet it was not funny to the parents at the time. How many of the kids got their butts busted when they got home ? I remember the time my son got hold of Stan's razor and shaved his eyebrows off ( son's not Stan's ). I went around with an alien looking kid until they grew back. There are not too many kids who have not cut their own hair. Elizabeth cut her hair when she was 2 and I still have it in a jar. Girls also enjoy getting into make-up too. I would not stay out of my mom's lipstick when I was about 5 and I would not mind her and pick up my toys and onsday she took the most red she had and put it on heavy and round .... in a big circle around my mouth and said, " If you want to act a monkey's butt, you can look like a monkey's butt. " Then she made me sit on the porch and let everyone laugh at me. :shamed:

    When Danny was about 8 (old enough to know better!) he called me up to the bathroom and showed me his thumb which was bleeding. "How did you do that?" I asked. "I don't know but it hurts" he blubbed back. "Could it have been with this?" I replied, holding up my razor which still had the piece of skin he'd shaved off his thumb in it. "No, no, er, OK, yes". "Serves you right" I said and left him to it. Evil mommy!

    Not evil, Kate. I'm sure he learned a valuable lesson. Just today, my son received a frantic call from the Water Department. A man from the department had gone to a house down the street from my son's home to cut the water off for non payment and had observed Lizzie going inside the house with three boys between the ages of 12 and 16.... alone .... their mother not home. Anything could have happened to her.... she could have been held down and raped or killed. These are boys who are known delinquents. The water man got Lizzie to come outside until her dad got there. My son told the boys never to come near or speak to his girls again . Lizzie got a spanking .... because she knows that she is supposed to come straight home from the bus stop and never to go into a house where a parent or responsible adult is present. I had to take one of my son's ex-friends through the court system three years ago for " fondling " of both girls but nothing was done and I am outraged still. The girls were afraid to talk to the judge or the guy got by with " You better not be seen around those girls again. " I pray my son will protect his innocent little girls.

    I was tuning when a little boy came in, folded his arms and fixed me with steely glare. 'Go on, then.
    'Go on then WHAT?' I said, glaring back.
    'Do a trick.'
    'EH?'
    'My mum says you're a magician. Do a trick.'
    I told him I wasn't a conjurer and didn't do tricks. Disgusted, he left. I took it up with his mum later, and she was equally baffled. Then she said,'No, I know what it is. I told him you were a MUSICIAN.'

    Great story CC! I had an e-mail today with "things kids say". I'd read most of them before but one of them said a boy was walking on a beach with his dad when he saw a dead seagull. His dad explained that it had died and gone to heaven. "Why did God throw it back down then?" asked the boy.

    Kids say and do cute things too, but sometimes they do naughty things. Our son was about 18 months old and learned that he could climb up on the bed whilst Stan was sleeping. He would pull his training pants down and pee on Stan's back and then laugh. Of course it was not funny but Stan would just tell him , "Just wait until you grow up, I am going to pay you back . " One morning when he was in high school , he just would not wake up for school, no matter how many times he was asked .....soooooooooooo , Stan filled a squirt bottle with warm water and squirted him on his back. He woke up and said, " Oh, no Dad, You did'nt make good on that promise.... did you ? "

    No way, Kate. Really? LOL

    Well, CC - we are still slogging it out here. Yesterday we were hoping Clinton would only have a very small lead in the Pennsylvania primaries. That would have probably ended it, because that elite waiting in the wings (the super delegates) would have likely put all their votes to Obama just to stop the slaughter. But, Clinton is arguing that Obama can't win the big states against McCain, so even though he has the votes of the people behind him - she should be anointed. While at the same time claiming he is elitist... Anyway, she won by 10 percent. Just enough to keep everything in play. Its beyond fatiguing.

    I heard it on the news and actually understood what they were on about because I'd read Diane's post yesterday. So, even though I hate politics, at least you're educating me!

    I just think that if those 2 were in a room alone with me I could have a good conversation with Obama, whereas Clinton would be looking down her nose at me, fluffing her hair, and scratching at the door to be let out.

    I reckon Clinton wouldn't even waste her energy LOOKING at you, Kate; you aren't a Merican, therefore have no vote, therefore are of no use to her whatsoever.
    She strikes me as a very hard, calculating woman. I'm surprised women vote for her, actually.

    Mericans seem to look at it differently though. It was just absolute maximum humiliation - the whole world know what he did! I think your assessment is true of lots of famous/powerful/wealthy people.

    I agree - she couldn't do anything about it. It was already international news. She might as well maximize her political connections with him. Plus, she has eternal power over 'ol Bill now.

    Its getting scary, isn't it Lynn? In 50 years, I think this is the first time I have really noticed the impact of how of government is operated (or not) in my daily life: The lack of value in the dollar, high food prices and gas prices, clients needing to cut to every other week, friends cutting out all excess spending, ice caps melting away, bees dying... *Yikes* would be an understatement I guess.

    I think the difference might be that a large number of us 'Merikins have been somewhat insulated from all this. I can say that this is the first time in my own life that I have FELT the impact of governmental policy in myriad of negative ways that are obvious to me. Earlier, its always been an intellectual concept and fighting the good fight for other folks less well off...

    Money is the root of all evil and politics is all about money. I am going to vote for the person and not the party from now on. There are too few people now who are willing to serve the people and not just get in office to feather their own nests. My grandfather( paternal) dealt in politics all of his adult life , never as an elected official but as campaign manager and / or advisor on the State level of government. ( from 1913 until 1970 ) He was sort of an early James Caraville. LOL. As much as I love the memory of him, I'll always be troubled by his statement that he always supported the candidate who offered the most monry. Would'nt be cool if George W. Bush was reincarnated as a giant merkin ? ha ha :rainbow: I did look up the definition .

    I heard a story today - not about a kid saying something cute, but a man saying something and being arrested!

    A friend of a friend was taking a flight in America. He worked for a British company that make jet engines and his job was to test them. When he boarded the plane and they started up the engines, he knew straight away that there was something wrong with one of them. He spent all day listening to them and knew if there was anything amiss. He reported it to the air crew, who dismissed his fears. He then asked to leave the plane, and other passengers got wind of why and also wanted to disembark. The police were called and he was arrested. The flight was cancelled and all passengers moved to other flights. When the engines were checked one was indeed found to be faulty and would have malfunctioned and caused the plane to crash.

    Come to think of it .... a merkin is a repub. A merkin is a (fake ) bush. so George W atleast is right about one thing. He really is A Merkin . Now for something cute. This was overheard at the park. The mom asked her 6yr old if he would like a pizza for dinner and he replied, " Gee Mom, You just read my stomach. "

    My sister told me yesterday that when I was 9 and she was feeling bad (at age 5) I sat down next to her and said: You know, when you are lonely - there is a voice in your head that you can talk to. She said it was a transitional moment; as she had never heard voices in her head prior to that.

    Keeper of the hens

    I have a gorgeous story about Joe, which is soooooo cute :heartsabove:

    We were talking about soaps made of beeswax, and then Joe said "Do bees make beeswax from the wax in their ears?" He thought all these bees were stood there picking the wax out of their ears and building their home with it! It was really cute, and we were all laughing at him :rolling:

    Keeper of the hens

    No, Joe doesn't mind being laughed at, I laugh at him all the time :) The other week the Cadbury's advert came on (the one with the gorilla and the drums) and Joe said: You know how soup and bread go together well?
    Me: Yesss.....
    Joe: It's like monkeys and drums, isn't it?
    :rolling: Maybe it's a had-to-be-there thing, but it was very funny. He does come out with some cute stuff :)

    Oh, and CC,
    "When worker bees are roughly 10 days old, they develop special wax-producing glands in their abdomens (stomachs). They eat lots of honey. The glands convert the sugar in the honey into wax, which seeps through small pores in the bee's body leaving tiny white flakes on its abdomen. These bits of wax are then chewed by the bees. The chewed wax is added to the construction of the honeycomb."
