  1. Hi K8, has the puter risen from the dead? Missed you!

    Good job my Elly is away on Funnymoon otherwise she might never close her eyes AGAIN!

  2. Yuck…I hope mine was little. That kind of freaks me out. This was intereting Grannymar….thanks. Green Coke…now there’s an entirely different image. So Alfred didn’t have a belly button huh? Is that possible? Where was his umbilical cord? Maybe that explains a few things about him.

  3. Joy I am waiting for baino’s reaction. She lives in Oz and talks of very large spiders that sound like they have clogs on!!!

    Maybe Alfred’s mother drank Green Coke!

  4. Grannymar,

    As far as Number 17 is concerned….. John Travolta is too big to be the little girl in Tootsie. Dustin Hoffman was better. And nobody could have picked up Debra Winger and carried her out of that place better than Richard Gere. He was superb!!!!!

  5. Flies don’t live that long in my house! Nothing like a can of Mortein and a rubber thong – then the lizard on my router likes to eat the corpses so swatting is more environmentally friendly. doubt I could swallow a Huntsman and not know it although one’s tried to penetrate an orifice before and Adam had one in his hat! (I’m not trying to put anyone off from coming here, they’re big enough for you to see them coming. One squirt of spider spray, thwack with a thong and they are dispatched painlessly into spider heaven. (I hasten to add – haven’t seen one for a few months but summer’s coming)

  6. Baino,

    I miss the little lizards that eat up all the insects in the house.
    I live in the Northern part of the USA most of the time but in Winter we live in Florida and have the little lizards. It takes some getting used to having them around but almost everyone I know down there likes them to come in the house and keep it clear of insects.
    Cute little things. And best of all, they love SPIDERS!!!!!!

  7. Grannymar and Baino,

    Once, when we opened up the house in Florida we lifted a cushion on a patio chair and there was the perfect skeleton of a lizard. He had obviously gotten trapped there and died.

    We put the little skeleton in a box and mailed him to our 7 year old grandson in Connecticut and he LOVED it. Took it to school and all the kids had a great time looking at the bones.

  8. Now there’s an idea!

    When my time comes all I have to do is crawl under a cushion. Then someday Elly’s kids can take me in a box to school for examination.
    It puts a whole new picture on playing with Grannymar!

  9. Yes, Grannymar, Elly will say to her little boy, “Georgie, look under the stairs and bring out Granny.She is in a box and you can take her to school and show the other kids.”
