Many years ago after marrying my first wife, my mother-in-law made a quilt for me. We lived in Spokane and winters had a tendency to get quite chilly at times, so I was elated to have received something that would keep me warm during those long winter nights. However, there was a problem with the quilt. It wasn't long enough. When it covered my feet, my chest was exposed and vice versa. I would have to roll up in a ball to get my whole self covered. It made me CRAZY, and it didn't take long for me to figure out dear mother-in-law made it short on purpose, to do just that. I have been grousing on and off about this for about the last 45 years, and as of late, mostly to my daughter who now does quilting amongst other things such as working as a nurse, running a house, taking care of three little kids and one big kid (spouse), tending to a couple of dogs, some birds, some fish, a bunch of chickens and whatever else that is live and living with them.

Well, guess what! She came to visit today and presented me with a quilt she had made for my christmas present. And it is perfectly long enough. Wow! Forty-five years I had to wait for this quilt. As I was jumping for joy, I was given the "bad news." She has to take it back to Maui with her, because it isn't finished. WTF!!! "Am I going to get this thing back before I die?" Is it possible Robin ended up with grandma's gene pool......and is now trying to carry on with making me more crazy??? Thank you Robin for the quilt, which I don't quite have yet. Just to let you all know, if I pop off before the quilt gets much use, you are not allowed to put it up for sale on ebay. Throw it in the box with me and light the fire.

Some of the old people......................

Seems just yesterday when I was changin' this kids diaper.

Now she's got one of these, who by the way, puked on me the other day.

And unfortunately, Tehani has the grandpa's hairline.

Some of the neighbor girls, who I've been trying to get to marry me these past years. When they were young and giggly, that's just what they did...giggle. Now they're saying to themselves, "Jeez! How much longer do I have to put up with this ol' buggah?"

Tried to get this one to marry me, but her husband objected. I wonder what the hell is growing from the top of her head.

Not this one either. The kid objected. I never noticed before, but she has an extra arm.

Grandma just can't seem to let the kid out of her sight. Jeez, it's just a kid!!!

More kids...

Whether one agrees or disagrees with US involvement in the affairs of Middle Eastern countries, a picture like this should motivate those in power to find another way to resolve the issues.

Everyone see the red wire? Do not touch it when the television is plugged into the outlet and turned on. It will get your attention like nothing else could, and will cause your hair to stand up, make your heart feel like it will explode and make a part of your body go limp, so much so that no amount of viagra will revive it. (Women need not be concerned with the last issue).

Now, would anybody do this TWICE in one lifetime? I'm not going to say. Stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid, stupid........

I received a call from Robin who was on the way to see her orthodontist. So, I thought it might be nice to share a picture of her with all the junk in her mouth. Hard to see, but it's there.
My question; Is all this time and money spent supposed to result in making her look pretty????? At least her hair looks decent. I could have uploaded the following picture.

I'm starting to wonder why I can stick my finger up my nose in search of that elusive "booger" without too much consequence, and on the other hand, if a gnat the size of a pin head flies up my nose, it make me crazy.
