The following is from a recent Dear Abby column that gave me a bit of a chuckle when my spouse showed it to me.In my case, it was appropriate since my (second) wife and I are about to celebrate our 32nd anniversary.
"DEAR ABBY: My second wife died last year after 39 years of marriage. She had a beautiful, unique sense of humor. Three weeks after her funeral, I was walking our dog on the day that would have been our anniversary. As I bent down to pick up the poop, I spotted a quarter on the ground. It was so tarnished with age I couldn't make out the date. But I remembered your "pennies from heaven" letters, so I picked it up.
I hurried home to clean it to see if it was from the year we were married. I was amazed when I discovered it was from the year I was married -- but to my first wife. Like I said, my late wife had a unique sense of humour ... SMILING IN NEW JERSEY"

Morning Friends.. Welcome book-end.:)....BOUNDER.. Butterscotch is my favourite also, but as all good things they are starting to dissapear. What they have out now looks like plasticine, but the kids enjoy it...MALLET.. I wish I had read your post last night before i went to bed, sure made me laugh. Grandkid used to be thought of as " pennies from heaven", but we know now what happened to the penny huh? ,lol.. Yes I suppose that Grammas are more to be in line for the " gluttons for punishment" concerning the Grandkids, but there comes a time when we have to take a few steps back for our own sanity as Celeste is finding out now. I think there is way too much interference with the Grandkids from the outside world and their friends also which makes it hard to be able to connect with them on the level that we would like. Some parents don't make it easy for us also... Like yes, you may watch our kids but don't correct them in any way.. Really???? Some seem to think that they are doing us a favour and not the other way around!..... CELESTE..Take the kids on your terms and only when you feel up to the task.. If your Son and his Wife want " alone " time,, let them hire a sitter for the night and go get a motel room ,lol... Maybe your Son really doesn"t want that much alone time with his Wife if she sounds like i think she is and will thank you for it ,lol.. What ever happened to just putting the kids to bed, then it's their time ?? Grandparents ( some :)) have to get the kids while they are young as when they get older you don't exist anymore as the friends take over, fact of life!... Hang in there girl, but do make the kids respect you or all is lost....... The water tank guy is coming this morning so i best go get dressed etc.,,, But I'm still going to be removing a few pictures from the house ,lol.... Have a great day folks....

We think alike,
time alone for parents is when their kids go to bed.
When my graddaughter was six,
her mother told her, she could stay up, until 10pm when at my house on the weekend.
But I put her to bed at 8:30,
anyway, when the mother found out about that, she said to me, I told my daughter she could stay up late on the weekend, I`m like, when she`s at your, house you could let her stay up late, I go to bed early.
This is what she said to me,
just put a movie on for her and go to bed, she`ll be find, warped thinking for sure.

After reading some post on kids, I have a question, if kids are precious when do they become not so precious.
Just Curious 6/10/2014 2:14:16 PM Report
bounder, it varies with the child... And can happen overnight... I know this from recent experience....:).
irishfey 6/10/2014 2:19:34 PM Report
CELESTE... We have more in common than you think.. My Grandaughter was "never" given a set bedtime and at my house it was sometimes 2am. by the time i got her to sleep!!.. But yes, we will lay this subject to rest as i know how hard it is on you..... BOUNDER.. All kids are precious at every age, just sometimes you would like to lock them in a closet till their brains kick in. My Son is turning 40 and is as precious to me as the day he was born, but there were times when i'd liked to have kicked his butt ,lol.. btw,, I took a walk today with a friend and stopped in at Bobbers for ice cream,, guess what they had???.. Butterscotch Ripple!! I would have shared but you wern"t there :)... Later...

And celeste, don't roll over on this... You are the elder and they do as you say. They need to learn this at an early age and stick with it otherwise they turn out pretty much disrespectful of anyone, which is what is wrong with our world today. That very situation is what has put me where I am now. A parent that absolved his responsibilities and a teenager that thought the sun shone out his ass because of it. When Gramps tried to straighten him out both him and his Dad called the cops.. I no longer have family, so play the game carefully..

J.C.. I have a Grandson that i wouldn't let in my home for 3 years. He was a little lier, thief, disrespectful, mouthy, on drugs etc... Yes i still love him and he is precious to me, but would i trust him in my home alone??? Fat chance!!.. Yes.. It depends on the child....
celeste5 6/10/2014 2:43:35 PM Report
I`m standing my ground on this.
Here`s a funny story
When my daughter inlaw moved to our city, I had the grandbabies more than their mother in a week, just about every week.
Anyway, she would just drop the kids off, talk to me for a minute and leave,
she never had time to visit.
This went on for almost two years.
She wasn`t working, she was just gallivanting around, my dads favorite word.
Anyway, one hot day, she asked,
if I had any diet pop, and I told her yes, come sit at the kitchen table.
Anyway her 4 year old son comes out of the computer room, and said to her,
What are you doing visiting here, LOL.
She was red faced, he stunned her.
I said to her, your kids are very observant eh.
irishfey 6/10/2014 2:46:13 PM Report
J.C.. I just saw your last post. My Grandsons last visit here,, he was " escorted" out by the O.P.P!! We had so much trouble with that boy ( courts, bail etc. ) that the cops finally told his Dad to take him out where no one could see and ' tune" him up,, but said to try not and leave any visible marks on the boy. The Cops are fed up with trying to do what should be the Parents job,, but then we have good old Childres Aid to step in if you swat the kids a**!... Yes CELESTE ,, tread lightly,, but hold your ground.... just remember.. your house= your rules.. and the Parents should respect that.... all will be ok,, she's only 11 and will love her Gramma always,, she's just testing the waters ,lol
irishfey 6/10/2014 2:53:17 PM Report
CELESTE.. That was funny!!... Sometimes kids end up having more respect for the Grandparents than their own Parents... They actually like being disiplined ( won't show it though) as it shows them that someone cares enough to do it.... J.C.. you just got a rotten deal from it!! and I'm sorry to hear that..... nap time now... Later...

Well that was me in town for the day, Dr said that I have "mild Arthritis" in the shoulder but not rotator cuff problems, however I have calcified tendons in the shoulder and he offered a cortozone shot, had them in my elbow before and I thanked him very much, and said no!!!
Apart from that paid some bills, saw the daughters and did some grocery shopping for the dogs and then came home.. Weather has been nice and is even better at home but it is buggy again... you all have a great evening...

I cooked a roast for supper, potatoes etc, and took out a bag of frozen green beans that i bought last week at F.B.,, When i opened it up there was a lot of freezer burn in it and some of the beans were brown!! I checked the expiry date and it was "" best before"" April 2013!! How can these Stores get away with such things?? And it wasn't even on sale. Buddy loves green beans and he even turned up his nose at them and i threw out the whole bag!.. I get tired of buying rotten food! Even when i buy bannanas, they go to rot in two days... Little things like this just tick me off!... Had to vent,, thanks ,lol... Have a great night folks and .. God bless... nighty night Gramma :)

I'm disappointed that comments to the PUC story is disabled...
mallet 6/10/2014 9:57:41 PM Report
Anything that draws ignorant responses is likely to get disabled, why these folks don't realise this I have no idea.. Anything to do with FN features is sure to draw the people with a noticable racial bent and you cannot draw attention to items that are very controversial with regards the city water ongoing problems. The PUC ran afoul of most citizens when they built their glass tower for themselves before solving the brown water the chorine taste and smell, when providing a service if you do not know which has priority, you should not have the job, but that is just my personal view..
