i've noticed lately when mowing the lawn, the brakes haven't been working very well - which poses a problem as our yard (3+ acres) slopes at a 30 degree angle in some spots. sometimes when TRYING to stop, i'll whip the lawnmower steering wheel to the left or right so i'm going BACK up the hill just to keep from dropping off into no nanc land at the bottom!

today, pop asked me to come out and step on the brakes as he was checking them, so i do and i say, "the brakes aren't working very well lately."

pop says, "the brakes aren't working at all - now's no time to start being polite!"

...oh boo...

pop, "um, son? would you mind picking the garden for me today and concentrate on the green beans and whatever else you see that is ready?"

"sure pop!"

although this is but some of the bounty from our garden, it's not exactly what nancson picked THAT day...

i was up on the patio when i looked down and saw nancson holding the following squash in his hands - i said, "HEY! THAT'S POP'S PRIZEWINNING SQUASH HE WANTS TO ENTER IN THE FAIR IN AUGUST!"

...first oh boo...

nancson got a look on his face like he was about to become supper, turned around, bent over and went to RE-place THE PRIZEWINNING SQUASH back where he'd plucked it from the vine and said, "pop'll never notice!"

...second oh boo...

"son - how much more do you think it will grow if you just set it back down in the vine?"

...standing ovation oh boo...

today, while checking out at the grocery store - i noticed the above alternative to the plastic bags and told the checker that i would have two - one is black, the other a dark pink. quite sturdy i might add.

when i returned home, nancpop and nancson unloaded the car and when nancson noticed the new grocery bags, he somberly stated, "oh, i see it's breast awareness month again."

...oh boo...

i like to keep this blog OFF politics as much as possible, but i could NOT resist posting this one:

found it at van helsing's. now, the funniest part isn't the video - check out this comment:

"This is insanity! If any of this is true, he can't be trusted on health care or any other reforms! Isn't there a clause for mentally unfit presidents? If this is actually his writings, it shows he has NO idea how anything works and his whole campaign is based on desillusionnal ideas! I see the funny comments here but am I wrong to be really scared here? Wasn't Hitler mentally unfit and prone to outbursts and depression too?"

here awhile back...

i hot glued one of these small burrs to a love note to nancson, "son, i promise i won't blow one of these into your ear while you're sound asleep. love you, mama"

when he awakened, he brought the note to me and said, "thank you, mama - i ALWAYS tell all my friends what a good mom you are."

...oh boo...

cheating husband gets his

he deserved it and more - they should have super glued his eyes shut and his lips closed! of course i have no words to describe what the women deserved...

now for my true super glue incident with my own sweet husband:

it was summer, hot as hell and the ticks were out thick. we were helping a friend build his log cabin for the summer and camping on his creek while doing so.

as was common, in the evenings after baths everyone would check everyone for ticks and my husband said, "i have one in a spot no one else needs to see." so i checked and sho'nuff there was one buried right in that virgin skin where the thigh meets the goods.

i ran for the super glue as it's the best assurance you get the entire tick - they back out and freeze up in the glue - you peel it off - no problem...well except if you drop the goods onto the area where the super glue HASN'T dried!

...oh boo...
