  1. And then there’s MORE LOGIC:

    If you fall out of that swing and break your neck, you’re not going to the store with me…….

    Once, years ago, when the concept of Adult only housing was first appearing on the scene, we were on a trip with the four kids. We came upon one of these places and I said,”Let’s take a look at how these people want to live.”

    We drove through the development and when we came out I said ,” I didn’t see a swing or a bike or any other toys anywhere. Isn’t that unusual?”

    From the back seat came the little voice of Steve, the 8 year old.
    “Mom, if those people don’t have any children, what do they do for aggravation?”

    I hope you had a bright sunny day like I did. Most of it was spent outdoors. My dinner is now in the oven and I am so hungry I could eat the keyboard! Time for an apĕrĭtif, will you join me?

  3. Grannymar,

    Thank you but, no thanks!

    I’ve had such a hangover today, I don’t think I want to see another alcoholic drink for a wee while. My liver is shot 😦

    Blame the men in uniforms – very hard to resist! 😉

  4. I was told if I didn’t eat my crusts, I’d never get curly hair . . .it didn’t work . . .I didn’t eat my crusts and have a crown of frizz.

    I was told that if I didn’t eat butter I would become colour-blind! Years later I discovered the colour blindness only affected the male of the species.

  6. Eat the burnt toast it’ll make your hair curly!

    I can’t remember which parent first said “When it’s brown it’s done. When it’s black it’s well done.”

    Of dry pie crusts: “I’ll eat the nasty inside bit and you can eat the nice outside.”

    on Vegetables: “If you don’t eat those vegetables you’ll never grow up to be intelligent and good looking like your parents.”

    I love the vegetables one!

    “If you don’t eat those vegetables you’ll never grow up to be intelligent and good looking like your parents.” Great!
