Soggy Bottom USA

I don't know how many of you can see on television what our area has going on with the flooding. 
Our actual town is doing fine with only wet floors, etc. BUT the nearby town in which we do our shopping, etc. is in a very difficult situation with many closed bridges and roadways under deep water.
Our kids cannot go to school :)
I am enjoying them and glad they are safe tied to my tight apron strings! 
The statistics I've heard about this rainfall are just crazy! Apparently we got double the record of a three month period...got that? ...in only two days. I slept during most of that :) Maybe it is just a nightmare? 
Tell me something happy, funny and good in your comments...


see you there! said...

Good grief, enough already with the wet stuff.

Funny story (somewhat rain related) When GD was about 9 we went shopping. Went in fine, came out and it was raining. No umbrella. She was holding my hand and said "What are we going to do?" I said I guess we'll just have to run for the car. Holding hands we start running and she starts giggling. I look down at her. What? She says "Nana! I didn't know you could RUN". HAHAHA

It WILL come to an end... our flooding here (which flooded an entire shopping mall!) FINALLY did come to an end.

A funny story??? Here's our VERY favorite Mother's Day story... we STILL go into hysterics when we recite it. We had just recently moved. I had been unpacking boxes of EVERYTHING, finding homes for kitchen stuff, dishes, kids' clothes, closet stuff... I also went outside and spent well over an hour hanging 2 birdfeeders without a ladder (I put a rickety chair on the picnic table on the deck... NOT a good idea, but it worked at the time). Hubby, who at this point had NEVER given me a Mother's Day gift (he kept telling me I wasn't his mother - dah!)... came home pleased as punch that he had just purchased me a Mother's Day gift for the very first time, and he was going to leave in it in his truck till Sunday. Exhausted after all the unpacking & birdfeedering, I said, "Oh YAY! Just tell me it's NOT a another birdfeeder!" His response? "YOU UNGRATEFUL B%TCH!" (Of ALL the things to get me as my first gift, it was the ONLY thing I said I didn't want!!! What were the odds?!) Then he said, "Now you know why I don't buy you gifts!!!" He was furious, but now we have the best Mother's Day joke ever in our family! lol

I haven't seen on television what your area has going on with the flooding. I just hope that everyone will be ok very soon, with the less damage possible...

We have had the flooding some time ago in France. Lots of people lost their house and everything... and they are now waiting to know if they will not be expropriated...

a song for you :-) from Nicoletta “Les volets clos”

another french song for you directly from the 70's by Il était une fois, “J'ai encore rêvé d'elle” :-)

Why does soggy bottom make me think right away of wet diapers?! I was going to whine and tell you that I stayed up all night with mosquito bites driving me nuts...but you probably don't want to hear that. I could tell you that it is a beautiful day here in California but you probably don't want to hear that either...how about we make a secret plan to send Louise some bird feeders instead...

I saw the flooding on the news last night. My heart pours out to everyone who is dealing with it. It must be a hard thing to go through.

As for a funny story ... I have two best friends, we're kind of like the three musketeers, we are. Everyone refers to us as "The Girls." One of my best friends is a pretty stubborn person. If addressed as a bitch, she replies, "You say that like it's a bad thing." (That makes it sound like she's awful, but she's really a terrific person).

Anyway, she's a child advocate lawyer & her job requires her to visit schools, so she drives around a lot. One afternoon when she was working on cases, she decided she was thirsty & headed to the drive through window of a KFC where she placed an order for an iced tea. When she got to the window the KFC lady (whose speech was heavily accented) looked at her and said, "You ordered iced tea, bitch?"

My friend was taken aback and she thought to herself, "Did she just actually call me a bitch?" She turned to the KFC lady and said, "Excuse me?"
The KFC lady replied, "Your order was for a peach iced tea, right?"

Amongst us "Girls," my friend is now known as The Peach.

Okey dokey, hopefully my sister won't mind if I tell you this one.

The other evening, she was giving her 4 year old grandaughter a bath. Sophia loves to take baths, and she plays and plays in the tub. Well, after quite a bit of time goes by, my sister told her it was time to get out of the tub. Sophia wanted to know why? My sister pointed to Sophia,s skin which was starting to pucker and wrinkle up a bit from being in the water so long, and told her to look at what happens when you stay in the water too long. Sophia looked at my sister and asked, "Oh, Grandma!; Is that what happened to you?" LOL!

Now, I have to just say, my sister is only 51, and she looks great. Hardly any wrinkles at all!
