Joke Of The Day

Posted in Just For Fun on June 30, 2006 by The Blonde

Married  25 years, took a look at my wife one day and said, “Honey, 25 years ago,  we had a cheap apartment, a cheap car, slept on sofa bed and watched a10 inch black and white TV, but I got to sleep every night with a hot 25 year old blonde. Now, we have a nice house, nice car, big bed and plasma screen TV, but I’m sleeping with a 50 year old woman. It seems to me that you are not holding up your side of things.”
My wife is a very reasonable woman. She told me to go out and find a hot 25 year old blonde, and she would make sure that I would once again be living in a cheap apartment, driving a cheap car, sleeping on a sofa bed….

Happy Birthday Mom

Posted in Family on June 28, 2006 by The Blonde

Dearest Mom
There is a time in every woman’s life when she understands her mother better than what she cares to admit.
Today, I am admitting that I understand you better now.
How so and why now?
I understand that there is nothing that you would not do for me if its within your power
That there is nothing that you would not protect me from even if it costs you your life
That there is nothing that can make you love me less but plenty that can make you love me more
That there is nothing that I can say or do to ever repay you in the smallest way for everything you have done and continue to do for me.
Today, I understand you as only another mother can.
Thank you from the bottom of my heart
I love you mommy, and thanks for being my Mom, I am proud that you are.
Happy Birthday 🙂

My Dad

Posted in Family on June 27, 2006 by The Blonde

My Dad is having surgery tomorrow, again.  On my Mom’s birthday of all days. He is going in to have what my Mom jokingly calls a Roto Rooter job due to not knowing what the proper terminolgy is.  What they are actually going to do is go in and clean the carotid arteries out in his neck. Kind of like having your radiator flushed in your car, I guess.  This is his second surgery in the last three months.  The last one was for something different.  I’m just as concerned this time as I was the last time.  Seems like every time I turn around something is going haywire with my Dad’s health.  I know things start to break down and wear out as you get older, but that’s not suppose to happen to my Dad.  He is suppose to be the rock of the family, the one that we all lean on.  There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think about him and all he has done for me in my life.  The good Lord blessed me with a wonderful Dad, he is very loving and caring, and I am very proud to call him my Dad.

I’ll say a prayer tonight before I go to bed, and hope God is listening to me, and everything will be fine.

I love you Daddy, your the greatest.  And know that I am thinking about you always, not just today, but every day. 🙂

Another Blonde Moment

Posted in Blonde Moments on June 24, 2006 by The Blonde

Well I guess I had to live up to the mother-in-law's post this morning on blondes.

Blonde Moment #@?@?  (I lost count):  So I am doing my normal Saturday morning ritual, laundry.  I forgot to empty the lint trap, which is on top of our dryer.  So being the dumb shit that I am sometimes, I decide rather then turn the dryer off, I will pull that sucker out and empty it with the dryer running.  WRONG THING TO DO!!  DUH!!  The lint trap was FULL, and we have a big lint trap, it sucked that lint back in there and spit it back out the vent on the back patio so fast. As soon as I heard this funny noise,  I knew I had made a big mistake.  I went out on the back patio and it looked like someone had taken a blue bunny rabbit and threw it in a shredder.  There was little pieces of lint all over the back patio.

So a lesson to everyone out there, TURN THE DAMN DRYER OFF BEFORE YOU EMPTY THE LINT TRAP!!  You will be much better off, trust me, I know.

Have a great Saturday everyone. 🙂

Carol

Carol is the oldest of our three beautiful daughters, 24 to be exact.  She is funny, smart, a joy to be around, oh and a Starbucks queer. She is also very clumsey and accident prone. This kid is so accident prone you can't let her have a butter knife at the dinner table because she will cut herself somehow.  And yes that has actually happened.  She will spill anything that doesn't have a lid on it.

Now that I am done picking on her, let me point out her good traits, and there are many of them.  Like her sister, Carol has also had a very bumpy road the last six years and has still managed to turn out to be the most wonderful person.  She is a very hard worker, too hard if you ask me, and she has done a great job supporting her own family.  And she won't put up with anyone's shit and she will let you know what she is thinking even if it is not appropriate.  She is one of the most beautiful and caring people that I know.  She has the most beautiful smile and laugh.  Her eyes twinkle when whe smiles. The kid is just too damn funny, wonderful sense of humor.

Carol, I am so proud to call you my friend and daughter. I love you very much Carol Anne.  🙂

Allyssa

Allyssa is the youngest of our three beautiful daughters, 10 going on 21.  As you can see by the picture she has her Dad's great sense of humor.  She is smart as a whip and very funny.  She should be a negotiator when she grows up because she is always trying to negotiate a situation.  When she should clean her room up, when she should shower, etc.  Allyssa  is a beautiful person and when she grows up she is going to make some man very happy.  Well, after she negotiates the shopping trips to the mall.

I am only her stepmom and would never try to pretend that I am her real Mom, I am happy being her friend, and I would never disrespect her or her Mom in that way, and even though I don't show it as much as I should, I love her very much.

I love you Miss Allyssa, your a very special young lady. 🙂

Sara

This is our beautiful Sara.  She is the middle child, 21 to be exact.  She is ornery, stubborn, opinionated and smarter than shit.  (Sounds kind of like describing her Mom, LOL) She has beauty and brains, and she'll give any man a run for their money, and if your a man, God help you if you cross her, she's been burned too many times.  She is very picky about her men, just like her cars.  She is more level headed then any 21 year old that I have ever seen in my life.  And boy let me tell ya, she will tell you exactly what she thinks of anything and if it pisses you off, sorry about your luck.  Life has thrown her a few curves the past 6 years, but she has come out on top.  She has a great job, and a nice car and she is making something of herself and didn't have any help doing it.  She has turned into a fine young lady and a great business woman, and I am so very proud of her.

Sara, I am very proud to call you my friend and daughter.  I love you very much Sara D. 🙂
