The Parent Swap

Howdy all,

Booo hooo....First I have to say I am disappointed that not more of you readers out there are putting your photos or video clip on my new guest book.....boo hoo.... I am sure other bloggers understand my sadness......I was hoping to see a whole mess of you up there from all over the bloomin USA.....Booo hooo..where the tissue?

Well...that said...let me go on to other matters.
I am out of quarantine.....I am feeling much better. I stayed in homey till my cold got better...didn't want to get Margie and sandy sick before they went on vacation...
As some of you know Jeff and I are in Mass. at his sisters family's home...parked in their driveway. We are here for 12 days or so while Margie and Sandy go to Italy with friends. Jeff and I are here to take care of our nephews, two teenage boys , 13 and 16. We are calling this
The Parent Swap....

should be interesting.....Jeff and I do things much differently than the Smoots...I told the boys we are having healthy meals...tofu veggies....seaweed

Be afraid...be very afraid....

Truth is...we will probably do allot of takeout....I would rather get meals the boys will eat...than to cook something i am not sure of....beside that I really am not into cooking....when I do make meals its a simple non fuss protein of some sort...with vegetables... easy....simple...and tasty.
So take out will be the what I am leaning toward.

Not sure if I will be staying in Homey or in the house. Jeff will stay in the house overnight. Though, Margie says the fur boys can stay in one of the bedrooms with us...So that's a possibility.

anyway that's the scoop for now...
Stay tuned for the premier of

The Parent Swap

Steven Wright at Foxwoods....

Howdy all,
Jeff and I saw Steven Wright tonight....the comedian...in case you don't know...I didn't know his comedy until tonight. He was fun. Strange dead pan bizarre sense of humor.
some of his quotes

On the other hand, you have different fingers. -- Steven Wright

I was sad because I had no shoes, until I met a man who had no feet.
So I said, "Got any shoes you're not using?" -- Steven Wright

What happens if you get scared half to death twice?

I used to have an open mind but my brains kept falling out.

I couldn't repair your brakes, so I made your horn louder.

a few videos ...check them out...

check out blogger play


these are the latest pictures that are uploaded to blogger thruout the internet.....if a picture interests you...click on it ....it will lead you to the web page it is on......interesting.....

How long do you keep your pillows?

Howdy all,

been hanging out with the ma ther and the pa ther ...ordered down comforter and pillows today from Macys.....ours has lost many feathers and has a hole...and is many years old. Also order a few down pillows..cause I have been meaning to replace my old flat ones for a while......and saw on TV many months back that you should replace pillows every six months to two years....well i think six months silly........and two years seems silly to me too....but considering mine were over ten years maybe fifteen or twenty....ha...i decided it was time to replace them.....

So I have a question for you......How long do you keep your pillows?????
Do you wait till the drool has them all stained....or till the feathers all fall out?

Mushroom Festival at the Denison Pequotsepos Nature Center in Mystic, CT.

This was a fun event. The cost seemed a little steep to get in 15 dollars per person, but we were given coupons to buy food. Nice mushroom dishes to choose from. There was music, and mushroom ID tables, books, mushrooms to buy and mushroom walks. No mushrooms on the walk...tooo dry.
I sure miss picking mushrooms this time of year. I will look around here and see what I can find, after a few days of rain.


Wedding of Jeffs cousins Son...at the Simbury Inn, CT.

Wasnt into taking much video or pics again...
but here is some....

a short video below
