Post deleted - too wide
You are a nut.
I had to delete it Nana because half of the goofy poem didn't show up --- too wide for our format I guess. It really was kinda funny if your could have read the whole thing.
Quilters: look at the pictures of our troops in the Washington Post - notice the covers are quilts? Now, this is inspiration to make and donate more quilts, right? http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/gallery/2010/11/27/GA2010112703190.html?hpid=artslot#photo=6
Sad but heartwarming at the same time. Thanks for sharing. God Bless all of our troops and bring them home safely soon.
God bless all our HEROS and their families. They are why I'm here safe and sound.
While I sat in the reception area of my doctor's office, a woman rolled an elderly man in a wheelchair into the room. As she went to the receptionist's desk, the man sat there, alone and silent. Just as I was thinking I should make small talk with him, a little boy slipped off his mother's lap and walked over to the wheelchair. Placing his hand on the man's, he said, I know how you feel. My mom makes me ride in the stroller too..' *****As I was nursing my baby, my cousin's six-year-old daughter, Krissy, came into the room. Never having seen anyone breast feed before, she was intrigued and full of all kinds of questions about what I was doing. After mulling over my answers, she remarked, 'My mom has some of those, but I don't think she knows how to use them..' *****Out bicycling one day with my eight-year-old granddaughter, Carolyn, I got a little wistful. 'In ten years,' I said, 'you'll want to be with your friends and you won't go walking, biking, and swimming with me like you do now. Carolyn shrugged. 'In ten years you'll be too old to do all those things anyway.'******Working as a pediatric nurse, I had the difficult assignment of giving immunization shots to children.. One day, I entered the examining room to give four-year-old Lizzie her needle. 'No, no, no!' she screamed. 'Lizzie,' scolded her mother, 'that's not polite behavior.' With that, the girl yelled even louder, 'No, thank you! No, thank you!******On the way back from a Cub Scout meeting, my grandson innocently said to my son, 'Dad, I know babies come from mommies' tummies, but how do they get there in the first place?' After my son hemmed and hawed awhile, my grandson finally spoke up in disgust, 'You don't have to make up something, Dad. It's okay if you don't know the answer.'*****Just before I was deployed to Iraq , I sat my eight-year-old son down and broke the news to him. 'I'm going to be away for a long time,' I told him. 'I'm going to Iraq ..' 'Why?' he asked. 'Don't you know there's a war going on over there?'*****Paul Newman founded the Hole in the Wall Gang Camp for children stricken with cancer, AIDS, and blood diseases. One afternoon, he and his wife, Joanne Woodward, stopped by to have lunch with the kids. A counselor at a nearby table, suspecting the young patients wouldn't know Newman was a famous movie star, explained, That's the man who made this camp possible. Maybe you've seen his picture on his salad dressing bottle?' Blank stares. 'Well, you've probably seen his face on his lemonade carton.' An eight-year-old girl perked up. 'How long was he missing?'*****... and my personal favorite ...God's Problem Now:
His wife's graveside service was just barely finished, when there was a massive clap of thunder, followed by a tremendous bolt of lightning, accompanied by even more thunder rumbling in the distance. The little, old man looked at the pastor and calmly said, "Well, she's there."
These are great. I really loved the breast feeding one and the graveside service one.....ROFLOL
the kids comments reminded me of when my daughter Melissa first started asking questions about sex. She was going to be the Virgin Mary in a play, and she wanted to know what a virgin was. The discussion evolved into an anatomy lesson about the differences between boys and girls. I reminded her that she has seen her male cousin naked when he was getting his diapers changed. . . ."you mean that thing that looks like a twig on a log?" I thought that was a pretty good description.
Way back in my pastlife I worked for my MiL in her day care. We had a little 2 year old boy who was just beginning to get the hang of potty training and a little 18 month old girl enrolled at the same time. I was in the middle of changing the girl child's diaper when the curious 2 year old showed up. He watched for a brief moment then leaned in close to get a better look. Turning his big eyes to me he spoke two horrified words... "NO Peence!?!" He was totally shocked to discover that girls came so poorly equipped for life. When his mother arrived to pick him up, he pointed, once again, to the little girl and loudly told his Mom that "Her got No Peence!!" That time he seemd genuinely disaapointed in her for her short-coming. *Tsk* she was such a failure.
Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.
I think I've told you this one before but it's too cute not to repeat.
Years ago (Grumpy days) we had the nicest landlady who was also our friend. Her DIL did not want her children using slang or little kid names for things so she taught them all the right words. They would urinate or void....not pee or poop. Now Nicholas was only about 5. He was taught that he had a penis and testicles. So when Mimi came to visit the grand kids, Nicholas comes running out and pulls down his pants and shows off his Peanuts and Popsicles. Out of the mouth of babes!
