FRIDAY FRENZY – GRANDPA GREEN

Woo-Hoo! It’s Friday, Friday Frenzy!   Real quick let’s play a game of Have You Ever? Sound like fun? Alright then, here we go… Have you ever watched a teenager lick a slab of ice/snow up a glass front door? Have you ever watched a 5yr. old sled down the stairs on her stomach head first…without…

THE FRIDAY FRENZY- even though it’s a Wednesday!

I love children’s books!  I. LOVE. THEM! Give me a slice of cake and a children’s book and I’m in hog heaven… Wait… A slice?  Who am I kidding? I laugh in the face of a SLICE of cake…And A children’s book? P-L-E-A-S-E.  That sort of thing is for amateurs! Remember Will Ferrell in ELF? Yeah,…

HALLOWEEN MOUSE

Awe-Snickerdoodles!

Awe-Snickerdoodles!!! The list came out and I’m NOT on it! I would be lying if I said it didn’t sting just a little.

I…

The good, the bad & we don’t do ugly!

Gosh, It really has been a while since my last post! I’d like to tell you that I’ve been on a long vacation breathing in fresh mountain air, but its been nothing of the sort! Seems I’ve picked up a few extra chores here lately as Chicken tore his achilles and Henry broke his ankle…both…
