Many of you have asked where in the world I've been.

All I know is that after 7 plus years of blogging and a different lappy, which I don’t like, I seem to have lost my blogging fervor.

Someday, when you least expect it, I will post again.

For those of you still waiting I say thank you.

Meanwhile, I am rather prolific on twitter. Find me: @KeethaB

One Frag, Two Frag, Three Frag, Four


It's Friday, the day Mrs. 4444 provides us with "unburden your mind" therapy by encouraging us to let go of the bits and pieces, the fragments that collect and clutter there.

 * * * * * * * * * * * * 

On our recent "Married Children Tour" I made this very important and Earth shattering discovery.

Two of my offspring hang their TP the RIGHT way, down the back.

Kelly and Korie.

Yes, that is the way I roll.

Now, before you attempt to argue with me about whether or not it is the RIGHT way, let me assure you I do fully realize that only 23% of the population roll down the back.  I would further submit to you that just because EVERYBODY is doing something that doesn't make it right.

Don't you remember what your mom used to day?  "If EVERYONE is jumping off a cliff are YOU going to follow???"

I rest my case.

* * * * * * * * * * * *

I do not know what our grandson, Mackinley, was trying to do when this moment was captured for all time and eternity.

But isn't that look on his face hilarious?
* * * * * * * * * * * * 

Piper, our grand daughter, piled all these frogs on my lappy while I was blogging.

Don't you wonder what makes kids' minds tick?
* * * * * * * * * * * * 

Daughter Keri thought Fisherhubby and I needed some new pictures of ourselves to post - - -

So she snapped these.
* * * * * * * * * * * * 

This is a fairly complete picture of our immediate extended family.  By that I mean it includes parents, siblings, kids, and grans.

It's two years old now, having been taken at our daughter Korie's wedding.

I still love it.

Now please hurry over 
to Mrs. 4444's place
to see all the other 
Hot Buttered Friday Frags!!

Looked up the TP on a proper etiquette web site. Surprisingly there is NO correct way to put the TP on the roll. LOL

Erin said...

Mackinley's face is priceless! He looks like he's hard at work! Those are great pictures of you and FH! Maybe Piper thought you were frogging instead of blogging? ;)

Right way, wrong way...but how does it feel against your body?

Love the family picture! Really love the pictures of you and Mr.!

Unknown said...

I love the pictures of you and Fisherhubby.

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

Great pictures of you and Fisherhubby.

Sorry, but that TP is just wrong, wrong, wrong. ha!

Wayne W Smith said...

I am just happy that there is TP...

Tracy said...

Wayne makes an excellent point.

Just a comment on the Red River Rivalry...the winner gets a cowboy hat trophy. Figured you would like to know. :)

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Good pic of you and Fisherhubby! My Mom has her TP rolling your, I'm opposite...but hey that's life!!
hugs, Linda

Jackie said...

Wish the family picture was larger so I could scope out everyone better. Looks beautiful, though!

Charlotte said...

I never know what I'm going to see when I visit you, but I always have a good laugh. Not going to comment on the TP roll! Great picture of you and hubby. You look like my massage therapist!

When I saw the photo on my reader I knew you would have something interesting to say. Didn't know the percentages though. Let me say I too have been surprised when visiting my kids --since I was very particular about having it the OTHER way at my house. I guess boys don't care. Aren't they your girls? I may be wrong about the names. :-)

42N said...

Nice looking family.

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Loved sharing all the family tidbits here!
I change the way I hand the tp all the time...keeps life exciting! hehehe.

nancygrayce said...

NOOOOO! Not the toilet are just so wrong. I'll be praying for you to have a conversion!

McKinley is fixing the car of course!

Great picture of you and Fisherhubby!

Patti @ Pandoras Box said...

I am a "TP over the top and down" gal (the "right way")!! Love the pics of you and hubby! And your family photo is beautiful - we also have one from the last family wedding - priceless!

Claudya Martinez said...

I used to be a roll under person and now I don't even notice.

Sorta Southern Single Mom said...

I LOVE your header. THOSE are the fall leaves I miss. People down here just THINK they have changing leaves. They have no idea what they are missing.

I roll the other way for two reasons: 1. That's how cleaning ladies and hotel staff do it and I figure they are PAID to do it the right way 2. From personal experience, it's harder for toddlers and kitties to unroll the TP when it goes over the top!

PAPS said...

Nice photos of you two. Froggies on the laptop I would have freaked:)

Ann in the UP said...

I love the new pic of FH and Keepie. I love when people look happy to be together!

Let's hear it for your girls who learned early the proper way to hang TP. My friend Nancy once had her MIL visit and she and Nancy's husband spend the entire visit switching the TP back and forth, back and forth! It drove her nuts!

Vidya Sury said...

Where else did I read about that roll? Can't remember. :D So interesting. Half the time I am just praying that when I go out, the roll is there - never mind which direction it hangs! :D

You both look great, Keetha! Lovely photos! Those frogs are cute! And wedding photos make me cry happy tears!


KathyB. said...

I think...well, never mind. I guess I might have jumped off a cliff with everyone else.My toilet paper rolls the other way, and it has never occurred to me to check the way my grown kids' toilet paper rolls, but then, it never occurred to me there was a right way to hang it.

The little frogs look pretty cute on your laptop, and the new photos show you and fisher-hubby to be cute & fun. But I could already tell that just from reading your blog.

It's your season of the year Keetha, FOOTBALL!Happy Football Season.

Kay said...

That is EXACTLY how we hang TP around here. I just find that it is easier to re-roll after a toddler hits it in this configuration.

I love his little face, it's almost like "good Lord, what is it?!"

Great couple pics! We keep forgetting to get us together as well.

Keri said...

No. Kelly & Korie are wrong. And so are you! :)

The TP can roll any way it wants to.....just so there's some on the roll when I need it. :-))
