Sunday Funny

The Man Rules

At last a guy has taken the time to write this all down

Finally,the guys' side of the story.

(must admit, it's pretty good.)

We always hear"the rules"

From the female side.

Now here are the rules from the male side.

These are our rules!

Please note.. these are all numbered "1 "


1.Men are NOT mind readers.

1. Learn to work the toilet seat. You're a big girl. If it's up, put it down.

We need it up, you need it down.

You don't hear us complaining about you leaving it down.

1. Sunday sports It's like the full moon or the changing of the tides.

Let it be.

1. Crying is blackmail.

1. Ask for what you want.

Let us be clear on this one:

Subtle hints do not work!

Strong hints do not work!

Obvious hints do not work!

Just say it!

1. Yes and No are perfectly acceptable answers to almost every question.

1. Come to us with a problem only if you want help solving it. That's what we do.

Sympathy is what your girlfriends are for.

1. Anything we said 6 months ago is inadmissible in an argument.

In fact, all comments become Null and void after 7 Days.

1. If you think you're fat, you probably are.

Don't ask us.

1. If something we said can be interpreted two ways and one of the ways makes you sad or angry, we meant the other one

1. You can either ask us to do something Or tell us how you want it done.

Not both.

If you already know best how to do it, just do it yourself.

1. Whenever possible, Please say whatever you have to say during commercials..

1. Christopher Columbus did NOT need directions and neither do we.

1. ALL men see in only 16 colors, like Windows default settings.

Peach, for example, is a fruit, not A color. Pumpkin is also a fruit. We have no idea what mauve or fushia is.

1. If it itches, it will be scratched.

We do that.

1. If we ask what is wrong and you say "nothing," We will act like nothing's wrong.

We know you are lying, but it is just not worth the hassle.

1. If you ask a question you don't want an answer to, Expect an answer you don't want to hear.

1. When we have to go somewhere, absolutely anything you wear is fine..Really

1. Don't ask us what we're thinking about unless you are prepared to discuss such topics as FOOTBALL, POLITICS or

motor sports

1. You have enough clothes.

1. You have too many shoes.

1. I am in shape. Round IS a shape!

1. Thank you for reading this.

Yes, I know, I have to sleep on the couch tonight;

But did you know men really don't mind that? It's like camping.

Pass this to as many men as you can to give them a laugh.

Pass this to as many women as you can -to give them a bigger laugh

These are the cutes bears ever!  Look she even has a SU apron!

Autumn Harvest

My demo swap for Sept. was made with the Autumn Harvest set.  This is one of my favorites.  It also has a cute acorn and jack-o-lantern face.  This set is lots of fun to color.  This one I used colored pencils and a few others I used my chalks.

This is Breanna's Patriotic Day.  She had such a good time.  They had red, white and blue pom-poms and made the flag with them at the end. 

Friday, October 16, 2009


When I was a kid my mother made me this doll for Christmas.  I have had him hanging out in my closet for a long time now.  Aleah spotted him and wanted to play with him.  He was in need of a few minor repairs and some new clothes.  She has had such a good time taking him everywhere with us.  She calls him Bobby.  Glad he is being loved again.
