Never Lose Your Grandkids

A heartwarming story.


A small boy was lost at a large shopping mall.
He approached a uniformed policeman and said, 'I've lost my grandpa!''
The cop asked, 'What's he like?'
The little boy hesitated for a moment and then replied,
'J & B Scotch whiskey and ladies with big tits.'

Another WIP

Here is another WIP. Share Your Heart by X's & Oh's. I am thinking of using DMC Satin instead of kreinik which i hate. Someone has asked me what fabric i am using, it is 14ct Aida Kiwi Sparkles Honeydew

This year is going to fast!

WOW This year is going to fast! Our other daughter will be 11 on Sunday 23 Nov, where does the time go.

It is so hot here today. Summer is coming. I hate Summer. Rather Winter as you can keep yourself warm, but summer is just to hot.

I have been outside for the last two days ripping apart the horrible flowers and weeds by my slidding door. Now it looks really good, can see all.

I miss my man.

I miss my babe so much, i can't wait till we can be a family, me, him and our girls. I miss not being able to wake up to him every morning and having hugs and kisses. Just to be able to talk to him all the time. I love you babe so much.



We are about to enter the BBQ season. Therefore it is important to refresh your memory on the etiquette of this sublime outdoor cooking activity.
When a man volunteers to do the BBQ the following chain of events are put into motion:

(1) The woman buys the food.
(2) The woman makes the salad, prepares the vegetables, and makes the dessert.
(3) The woman prepares the meat for cooking, places it on a tray along with the necessary cooking utensils and sauces, and takes it to the man who is lounging beside the grill - beer in hand.
(4) The woman remains outside the compulsory three meter exclusion zone where the exuberance of testosterone and other manly bonding activities can take place without the interference of the woman.

Here comes the important part:
(6) The woman goes inside to organise the plates and cutlery.
(7) The woman comes out to tell the man that the meat is looking great. He thanks her and asks if she will bring another drink while he flips the meat.

Important Again:
(9) The woman prepares the plates , salad, bread, utensils, napkins, sauces, and brings them to the table.
(10) After eating, the woman clears the table and does the dishes.

And Most Important Of All:
(11) Everyone PRAISES the MAN and THANKS HIM for his cooking efforts.
(12) The man asks the woman how she enjoyed 'her night off.' And, upon seeing her annoyed reaction, concludes that there's just no pleasing some women.

LOL, this is so funny, i got this in my mailbox today.
