When it all began.

When T. was in preschool he had to draw a school bus. 

T. hated art, hated to draw, hated to be told what to do, hated a regiment.  Not much has changed.

In packing up the house, again, I was going through his memory box and I found the picture.

It made me laugh out loud as I remember the conversation I had with the teacher.

Teacher:  Mrs T-Mom, today I asked the students to draw a picture of a school bus.  The object of the exercise is to be able to recognize shapes and draw them.

Me:  Uh-huh (silently thinking please don't tell me he threatened to bring his grandfathers chain saw to school again)

Teacher:  This was T's picture

hands me drawing

Me: Oh.  Did you ask him why he drew the school bus like this?

Teacher:  Yes

Me:  And what was his response?

Teacher:  He said it crashed.

My Award

Today I received an award from David Allen Waters who writes the blog PEN to PAGE.  I was directed to his blog by my friend Rabbit who without a doubt deserves an award from bloggers out there as I know many of us have started to follow blogs on his recommendation.

David, thank you for the award.  Your blog writing and poetry leaves me envious and your lemon meringue pie was incredible.  (Still have to try your Chocolate covered cherry heaven cake.)

The rules state I must share 7 random things about myself, then pass it on to 15 others. I think 15 is a little excessive, so I will pick 10.

Okay firstly 7 random things about myself:

1.  I studied Nouvelle Cuisine under the guidance of Pieter Veldsman who was a food editor for an Afrikaans woman's magazine in South Africa.

2.  I love whole grilled fish on the BBQ because the eyes are what I consider a real delicacy.  (okay quit gagging)

3.  I am fiercely loyal to my friends until you lie to me or not follow through on a promise ~ then you are persona non grata.

4.  I would rather give a gift than receive one.

5.  I hate to fly.  If you do ever have the opportunity to fly with me as we take off do not disturb me as my eyes will be closed and I am silently counting to 100.  After that bring on the drink cart.

6.  I can be quite needy hence my bond with wine, it never disappointments.

7.  My best friend lives in England, we have been friends since we were 5 years old.  We have been friends for 40 years.  I just spent time with her in England in January and I miss her terribly.

I now present the award to the following bloggers who make me laugh, cry and some days give me a reason to get out of bed.

Bad Words by Tulpen  ~ I love this woman.  I hope we get to meet one day.

Life of Riles ~  Tim Riley, teacher and I don't think there could be a bigger cheese head out there.

Singing Sappy Songs in the Shower ~ her outlook on life and her photographs on random things that we would just walk by, is amazing.

Small Soldiers ~ Brooke is a mom to two adorable little girls.  Her husband just returned from serving in the Middle East.  She makes me smile.

Sophomoric Sesquipedalian ~ Heads up you will need a dictionary close by.  Leila uses lots of big words.  Great teenager and always so deep in thought.

Rabbit ~ He deserves more blog awards ~ hell he deserves Blog of Note!  Be warned if you are sensitive or get your feelings hurt easily, then it may be best to move on, Rabbit calls a spade a spade and would probably hit you on the ass with it and then give you cookies.

Triton Cove ~ Fairly new to the Blog World.  Great photographer, I mean it, great photographer!  Also is a whiz with Photoshop.

Tales of a half crazed housewife ~ I want Meg to blog more so I am hoping this award gets her off her ass!

Brits in the US ~ Love, love how David describes things and writes.  Very dry wit, much like mine.

Naris Life ~ Great blogger and I love her sense of humor.

Congratulations to my blog friends.  Now follow the rules and have fun.

My World of Warcraft name.

My friend Meg and I were speaking about our kids and their World of Warcraft playing.  She told me that she was informed by her boys that when she gets angry she has a Demoralizing Shout which totally takes the wind out of her sails and all leverage when she wants their attention now. 

I told her we should ask our boys that if we played WoW, what name would they give us for our character.

This is how my conversation went with T.

Me:  T if I was to play World of Warcraft...

T:  You wouldn't play it, there are snakes.

Me:  Okay hypothetically if I was to play WoW, what character name would you give me?

T:  Wino

*When T starts therapy later on in life I want a kick back from the therapist as I have provided ample fodder to keep the therapist in the lap of luxury.*

We can all learn from nature.

I know I have posted this picture before, but I think currently it warrants being posted again.

This tree is on the edge of a cliff at Yaquina Beach, Oregon.

No matter where you are planted it is up to you to grow, we make take a few wrong turns now and then, but as long as our stem is solid, we will survive.

Smile more, laugh much, drink more wine.

Celebrate today.

Next step.

Now that I have done my duty in informing you of the Tequila shortage I found this little gem on YouTube today and had to share.

These ladies deserve their 15 minutes don't you think?  Yeah Laurie, it's thundering, it's thundering.

Making you aware of a major crisis.

With everything that is going on in the news, country going to hell in a hand basket has anyone noticed we are in a major crisis?  Is anyone even paying attention?  You may want to sit down for this.

Mexico is running out of Tequila. (well the Agave plant is being destroyed, but without the Agave plant you don't have Tequila, get it?)

In the next 12 years we will have no more, nada, zip, zilch, zero.

Start stocking up now.

You're welcome.
