Motorcycle Madness....

Remember the "olden" days when all things evil were associated with the M word--mayhem, mischief, murder and motorcycles!! Nowadays, the cyclists are white-haired, balding, Tim Horton's drinking seniors---that's me!!! And I do find myself looking much too long at those M in black leather,, wondering , wishing, just maybe there's an M in my future???

Scandalous??? NOT

No disrespect to Roman Catholics out there,, but I can't understand why they keep calling the story of Father Cutie (yes, that's his name, really, I'm not kidding, google it) a SCANDAL,,, pictures surfaced of him canoodling with a woman,,,did you hear me--- woman-- adult female!! A modern day hero, breaker of stereotypical molds---- and might I add,,, not hard to look at-- Way to go Father!!!
You should be "embraced" by RC hierarchy -touted as the new look of priesthood---guaranteed increased membership,, maybe even mine!!!


Have never been able to plunge in----always admired those who could dive headfirst into our cold Atlantic oceans, lakes, and pools--but I am missing the cleansing therapy blogspot affords! and interaction with amazing people, not possible through facebook--- So today I dip in one toe,,,,, ewwww,,it's cold!!!
Of course this is not MY leg, as evidenced by previous photo-it is much too sleek and cleanly shaven,,,no varicose or spider veins, cellulite,,,

"Where am I supposed to sleep?"

"There's always the empty adjoining bedroom," I suggest, not wanting to disturb the so soundly sleeping menagerie.
"Billy!! Move-- Nowwwww!!!"
Billy rolls his eyes at Frank, unmoved by firm tone of voice.
Alpha male wins-- Billy's in the next room,,, but I'm finding it most uncomfortable not being able to move!!!
(please disregard the fat, hairy, spider-veined leg with attached huge foot. Alpha male told me to cover it up before he snapped the pic,, but being the superalpha and omega female,,, I took offense,, saying, "What's wrong with my leg?? Now I see--- Dang-- he's always right!!)

Just Drifting Away!!

Quite the role reversal and shocker for my offspring-- me -in the water!! Growing up, it was always Frank who "volunteered" to take the plunge with our kids,, whether it was a pool, beach or lake-- the rule was,, I don't do water!!! Something to do with fear of bathing suits, getting wet, and head under water!

Nowadays, he's adopted my rule---ironically-- I'm having all the fun!!
(sans bathing suit, or head under water)

Encounter with Evil

As I bounded up our country lane to meet Frank at the main road this morning, I heard the sound of rocks splashing in the water-- large rocks-- then I saw him-- monster--taking careful aim before heaving the lethal weapon--
Mama could have taken flight-- she chose to protect her babes---
I hollered --- he stopped--
Tonight, I found her,,, this morning she had seven fledglings,, now she has three--
I am sickened by the cruelty and wish I could somehow apologize to this brave mama for the barbaric actions of our species--- and am amazed at her devotion in risking her life to save her young!

Coming Back to Bite You in the Butt

Or other vital parts!!
Two (that I know )of these nasty critters--earwigs-- hitch hiked home in our laundry from last week's camping trip! Last Sunday, as I unpacked and dumped the oh so handy portable collapsing laundry bag,,, there they were-- the first one I gathered in kleenex, squashed in the palm of my hand(yes, I heard the crunch) and flushed down the toilet!

Earwig number two -- same procedure, except for crunching-- didn't have the heart or the stomach-- BUT I watched it disappear in a whirlpool (cesspool) of swirling water!! Phew-- sigh of relief--- UNTIL-

Today, whilst super cleaning same toilet,,, hidden crevices, under the rim,, full monty--- there it appeared, clutching vigorously on for dear life to underside of rim--close proximity to sitting (or standing) area--

I’ve been duly warned—but choose to proceed- in spite of the rolling eyes, scoffs, skepticism, and concern for my sanity!!
It was a wonderful weekend at Upper Clements Theme Park—along with five grandchildren , two children and their respective spouses--- At the end of the long fun-filled day, we were gathered at the “ball room”, readying to depart and say our good-byes--- Michael noticed an unusual looking rodent had poked its head out from under the wooden steps --- looking straight on—an animal the likes of which we had never seen, except in pictures, in broad daylight in the midst of a theme park nonetheless--- there it was--- and I knew--- call me crazy, whatever, a mother knows these things---- it was a GROUNDHOG!!! Chris’s birthday is Feb.2—Groundhog Day--- and I know, as anyone who knows Chris knows—his genius and flair for practical jokes,,, he had found a way to say “Hello, I’m here too”---

Who Needs Disneyworld??

..when for a few measly dollars, you can have loads of fun and wetness without all the waiting in lines, mobs of people, heat, and expense??
Okay, okay,, so it's not water wonderland,, but Aussie had a ball!
