Good Morning Friends... Didn't sleep worth a darn last night and woke up again at 5, so I have plenty of time to get ready for Church. It will be another " quick" shower again as the water tank fella can"t come till Tuesday to fix the problem.... No rain as of yet so we might get a nice day after all. Have a great day... Later.. I think i will be down for a wee nap after Church though....

Good morning to you,
and to everyone else who makes a post.

I`m going grocery shopping shortly.
I have my bike back,
So, I`ll be going for a bike ride before the rain comes.

Fred was in the fertilized egg business. He had several hundred young 'pullets,' and ten roosters to fertilize the eggs.
He kept records, and any rooster not performing went into the soup pot and was replaced.
This took a lot of time, so he bought some tiny bells and attached them to his roosters.
Each bell had a different tone, so he could tell from a distance, which rooster was performing.
Now, he could sit on the porch and fill out an efficiency report by just listening to the bells.
Fred's favorite rooster, old Butch, was a very fine specimen, but this morning he noticed old Butch's bell hadn't rung at all!
When he went to investigate, he saw the other roosters were busy chasing pullets, bells-a-ringing, but the pullets, hearing the roosters coming, would run for cover.
To Fred's amazement, old Butch had his bell in his beak, so it couldn't ring.
He'd sneak up on a pullet, do his job and walk on to the next one.
Fred was so proud of old Butch, he entered him in the Brisbane City Show and he became an overnight sensation among the judges.
The result was the judges not only awarded old Butch the "No Bell Piece Prize," but they also awarded him the "Pulletsurprise" as well.
Clearly old Butch was a politician in the making. Who else but a politician could figure out how to win two of the most coveted awards on our planet by being the best at sneaking up on the unsuspecting populace and screwing them when they weren't paying attention.
Vote carefully in the next election, you can’t always hear the bells.

Afternoon Folks

Had some computer problems this Am, so could not post... Got it working again but I think the desktop is toast. Not sure whether to get another or just go with a laptop..

Just some maintenence jobs today on the tractor and stuff, can't do productive things all the time something lots of companies forget... maintenence is a necessay evil...

Redranger...
A good joke similar to the story of the two bulls.. A young bull says to the old bull lets jump over the fences and service as many cows as we can, the old bull replies lets walk round and service them all....

You all have a great rest of the day...

Just an observation on life on a Sunday afternoon as I sit on my step and watch the world go by,,cold beer firmly in hand.:).

The young fella across the street from me( the one that just tosses his garbage bags out in the front yard)finally got in the mood to cut his grass today.. He's doing 12" grass with a small electric weedeater, and every time he runs across stuff in the grass he just tosses it out into the street. So far he has tossed out several pieces of plastic bottles, some cardboard and now a beer bottle and a couple of cans.. What goes thru some peoples minds today just boggles me.. Glad I'm approaching the end of my time on this old Orb we call Earth 'cause she's going to Hell in a handbasket...Sad...really....

just curious -- I think we have always had the I do not care about others around, we call it the me syndrome. The ones who think the world owes them. They to not care about anyone but them self. They are the first to complain about everything. They or there children can do no wrong. Then they wonder why they have problems and there children grow up getting in trouble. But its used to be a 5% ass hole factor now its around a 20% ass hole factor .

Just Curious and Northernmale..

I think there has always been people who have no regards to themselve or other people just we are more consious of it now than we used to be. There have been slobs since time began and I doubt that will change much in the future, however much people are educated. One can only hope that ones neighbours are not into the scrap and "recycling" ways...

Hello

I have a problem right now,
The last three times I looked after my granddaughter she was disrepecting me,
this time for two days and her mother thinks it`s normal behavior and,
told me to just put up with it and try to get along, can you believe that.
My kids were never disrepectful to me,
and my son knew I would be upset and he gave his wife shit, now she is angry at me.
Anyway, he`s trying to do something about it, because, he told me, she`s being disrepectful to the both of them.

JC, at least he's improvising, !
mallet 6/8/2014 8:51:23 PM Report

Celeste..

You do not mention how she is dis-respecting you, this term covers many things. I find the best way to solve the problem is to completely ignore them, while they are behaving in this manner.. I regret to say that it is very difficult with grand and great grand children, as you are dealing with an in law, in laws parents and on and on. I am not the best to offer advice as to be very honest I do not like young children and as soon as they turn into teenagers they are know it alls. As a child I was brought up somewhat in the Victorian manner... children were to be seen, but not heard...

J.C and N.M.. I know what you are talking about and i think that Mallet hit the nail on the head! When we were younger we had more things to do and was always busy but as we age we are more aware of what others do,, more time on our hands so to speak. Some folks have no pride in how their home or the outside look while others care about things as they feel it's a reflection on them. You can't change these folks ( I have a family member that should be in one of those hoarding shows) so we just have to look the other way and be thankful that those slobs don't live under your roof.... J.C.. you sound a wee down my boy,, yes the world is ging to hell in a handbasket , nothing we can do about that, but you're still alive and kicking so just try and focus on other things that make you happy ( like Scruffy ) and try and get out more... Hard i know, but don't let it get you down ok?.. Pot meet kettle,, I have those days too.... CELESTE,, You did the right thing in telling your Son. He has to nip this chids behaviour in the bud now or there will be trouble down the road. If your Daughter in-law thinks this is normal behaviour, then she is in for a rude awakening ,let her " pay" for a babysitter next time, she will change her tune... How old is the child??.. When they hit the Teen years, then yes, the attitude starts and all hell breaks loose sometimes. Your Son sounds like a smart Lad so let him handle things... You should never have to take disrespect from your own Grandaughter!!.. Stick to your guns on this issue..... We had a late lunch today so supper was an ice cream cone from Bobbers ,lol then a walk with Buddy. I had a wee nap but not that long so i should sleep well tonight, i hope.... Soooo,, sleep tight my friends and put your worries on the Lord, that's what He wants us to do so take Him up on His offer. ( my belief ).... Nighty night all... Don't worry Celeste, things will work out....

MALLET.. I was brought up with a big black belt across my butt when i was disrespectful, and to be honest,, I did have a big yap back then ,lol My Dad had a saying.... " Come back in 20 years and tell me what you've learned since you knew it all ""....p.s... My older Brother threw away the " belt " when he was able to stand up to my Dad,, but we did learn the meaning of respect!!

Hi, she was being sassy and rude,
saying no to me, I don`t have too.
The Tv was down for two hours and she wouldn`t tell me how to fix it, they have Bell and I was following instructions from the Tv, on how to correct it, but It didn`t work.
anyway she fixed the Tv, but wouldn`t tell me what she did.
She would tell her younger brother he didn`t have to do what I asked of him.
She would repeatly do something over and over when I asked her not to do that.
She left a big pile of clothes in the middle the walkway, I asked her to pick them up twice, she said no,
anyway, we all stepped over those clothes for about two hours.
She was rude at every turn.
That was the first day, the next day was the same, she`s 11.
I did give her a talk about her behavior,
and she ignored me for part of the day,
her mother doesn`t like me to punish her.

I`m not use to that, because my kids always did what I asked of them.

Thanks, she`s 11 years old.

Everyone thinks the mother and daughter should apolize to me.
I told my son, they both need a lesson in manners, he didn`t get mad at me,
because he talked about this to his wife before.
