Ho-ho's on the Bone

I was reading my blogger friends this morning and came upon these words of wisdom from Min. I chuckled reading about Vi calling everything an appee. It reminded me of this story - not my children, but my sister's child so I am sharing this.

When my nephew was little, his mother, in an effort to preserve her garbage disposal, told him that all sorts of things were bones. Celery, corn cobs, actual bones, etc. Bones got thrown into the trash and not into the garbage disposal. My nephew was also one of those children who remembered every commercial he ever heard and integrated them into his own life. Hence, all vegetables were "ho-ho's: as in "Valley of the Jolly (ho ho ho) Green Giant".

All of this explanation is in preface to the night my nephew, somewhere around 2 years old, walked into the dining room, looked at the table and declared in delight "Ho-ho's on the bone!!"

Yep, corn on the cob.

The Warm Feeling in My Chest

and no, it's not heartburn.

Moose's school library is having a book sale today and tomorrow. Today he came home from school with a bag of old National Geographics and the Wild Animal volume of A Child's First Library of Learning. He paid for these with his own money.

I love books. I love buying books. I love that this has been passed on to my grandchild.

The best part? The school is also selling old movies. They are 25 cents whereas the books are 10. He spent 25 of his own cents to buy a movie. The movie? The Nutcracker. Not something Moose is especially fond of but a ballet that a friend of his has performed in for years. He bought it for her.

Good job, Bubba.

Stress Test

You can’t change the direction of the winds, but you can reset your sails!


I am not sure exactly how it works, but this is amazingly accurate. Read the full description before looking at the picture.

The picture below has 2 identical dolphins in it. It was used in a case study on stress levels
at St. Mary's Hospital. Look at both dolphins jumping out of the water. The dolphins are identical.

A closely monitored, scientific study revealed that, in spite of the fact that the dolphins are identical,a person under stress would find differences in the two dolphins. The more differences a person finds between the dolphins, the more stress that person is experiencing. Look at the photograph and if you find more than one or two differences you may want to take a vacation.
