Funny Kids


The insurance company sent out the next round of "proof of insurance" papers. Toby handed Jesse her motorcycle insurance, which is on our insurance for some reason. Jesse looked at it and said, "Do I have a Kawasaki?" The look on Toby’s face was priceless. Then we all burst out laughing. It was just such a "woman thing" to say. If someone held a gun to my head at this very moment, I could not tell you what kind of motorcycles Jesse and Toby own (although I may remember Kawasaki from now on). Toby has told me a gazillion times, but it is just one of those things that does not stick in my mind – kind of like algebra.

The Piper and his royals came over last night to do some fishing in the pond. Although it had been a beautiful day here in OK (one of the best so far this spring), it was a bit chilly by the time they arrived in the late afternoon. HRHTDP followed her dad down to the pond to fish, but the second little princess chose to stay with the Queen and I. We did walk down to the barn to see Toby and his chicks. The little Prince was highly entertaining with his animal sounds - the chickens say "Bach, Bach." When you ask him "what does the bear say," he answers by wrinkling his nose and giving the quietest little "grr" sound – too funny!

Speaking of funny. I babysat the Grand Girls yesterday while my DIL had her hair done. I took Ranger the Rat Terrier to entertain the girls. He does several tricks – like sit, roll over, and high-five. Actually he will do most anything for food. In fact, one of my art girls told me that she had read that if a dog is overweight chances are the owner is over weight. Wow, what was her first clue. Anyway, I wanted to make Ranger do his tricks for the girls. I put a Cheeto in GBN2’s tiny fingers, looked at Ranger and said, "Sit!" Both Ranger and GBN2 dropped to a sitting position. Jesse, who happened to be having lunch with us, and I cracked up. I guess GBN2 will do anything for a Cheeto, too.

I have thin dogs whats up with that? Our Boston terrier will do anything for a hot dog, I always said I should have trained the kids with hot dogs " Clean your room" Clean your room"

The quote was " If your dog is fat you are not getting enough exercise" Unknown. I thought it was funny. My dog is very buff. But I am not getting enough exercise!

GBN2 is so funny! I can imagine he sitting alongside Ranger for a treat.

TOO funny!

The overweight dog/owner thingie ain't always true (JD!). TSMP and I were never overweight, but two of our three dogs were on the "plump side." Part of that was because we were indulgent, another part was because they ate everything/anything they could find...

Buck, I thought you would have something to say about women not knowing what kind of motorcycle they were riding.

Diva, maybe your girls are the ral owners.

Ashley, If you are not getting enough exercise, chances are, you are fat like your dog. Although some people have dogs that are wound a little tight.

We had a good time visiting last night. The kids really enjoyed themselves. It's funny to see that even after your kids are grown they can still bring such entertainment to your lives!

I2 sez: "goo shape".
Would that be like Jabba the Hut?

Ya know...i've actually found that to be true...in fact, i gave a SLEEK Minpin to a very overweight therapist i used to work with...within a year the dog looked like a black and tan basketball...it was kinda sad.
