Thursday Portrait

It's been awhile since I've taken a photo where I am not making a really stupid face, or one that doesn't showcase my panda bear figure (I plump up right quick -post India starvation diet!) Finally there is this one, and I apologize for the little bit come hither look, Mr Ratburn took the picture, and well, ya know....

Happy Thursday!

Too Many Eggs!

"do you want the last egg?"
"oh no! Oh no! No, no!"

"honey, can you believe we ate 36 eggs?"

"You're sleeping on the couch tonight."

Have A Nice Day!

Fortunately, and unfortunately, we are having a lot of work done on this house that we have been living in for 18 years. The house really does need the work, but what a pain in the arse. Now I finally understand why my neighbors in their starter mansions complain when they are having "the kitchen redone".
"My goodness, there is dust on just absolutely everything! I am going to have to get the drapes professionally dry cleaned after this reeemoe!"
So lets talk about the handymen. Besides being here too early every morning, playing an annoying classic rock station in my yard, leaving cigarettes butts and taco bell wrappers around the yard, parking on the grass when I have a gigantic driveway, and dropping nails and screws all over the place for my tires to find, they are also slow as molasses. And since they are doing a lot of work on the roof, they keep popping up in every window! We live in the country and some of our windows do not have curtains, either. So, at least for my pain and suffering, do you think I could get a little of this to look at while they have invaded my space off and on for the past two months?

Of course not, I get two of this:
Ok but I have to admit, they can be pretty funny. Why, just today I overheard these two lovelies:

Young handyguy, proudly showing off his work to oldtimer handyguy:
"What do you think of that?"
Old timer (with front teeth missing so he whistles)
"I think it'ss crap!"
Young: "What's wrong with it?"
Oldtimer: "Everything!"
Young: gasps
Oldtimer: "well then, don't assk if you don't wanna know!"

Then later, the young guy is on a ladder and says to oldtimer:
"Can you do me a favor?"
Oldtimer :
"I don't do no favorss that involve me being on my kneess."

Have a lovely day!
