Things are getting pretty echoy and empty around here.
Now there's this big ole Arkansas Bull Frog sitting in my driveway. He doesn't croak or ribbitt and he has a great big empty belly for us to fill. That filling is scheduled to begin at 9:30 AM Wednesday. Then the bull frog will "hop" away to Wisconsin.
Here are a few "packing tid bits" for various of my family members!
Kaeleigh, Mackinley, and Piper:
Look what we packed up today! They are going on the truck, and when you come to visit Kamma and Papoo in Wisconsin, you will find them WAITING there for you!!
I found this in the computer room today. I have stuffed it with a few of your "tiny treasures" that we found in various places. I think some of the treasures will make you smile! I imagine this will be waiting for you over at Peepaw's garage, along with a couple of small boxes of your things that Papoo found in your old bedroom.
I'm sure you will breathe a sigh of relief to know that THIS is safe and sound. It is already packed in a box to go to Wisconsin - - - just for "posterior" sakes. ;-)
For those of you who are scratching your heads in confusion - - - this is the last remnant of the days when America STILL believed in "spare the rod and spoil the child."
Kelly was well acquainted with this particular "rod" , for on multiple occasions it was applied to his "seat of learning." (Three whacks - - - that was my rule.) On one such occasion, the wood having been weakend in the dishwasher, the spoon portion broke as you see it here.
Many is the time Kelly KNEW he was about to get in trouble, so BEFORE he disobeyed, he dressed himself in several pairs of shorts, sweat pants, and jeans over the whole kit and kaboodle - - - for plenty of padding. Then he did his "dastardly deed," which usually involved picking on his sister Korie, and took the consequences.
