Happy Saturday Everybody!
Man, I’m ready to hit it this morning. So, I thought I would post to my blog first thing as it has been a few days! I will be working on my Graphic 45 Projects for May, doing a few How To YouTubes, working in the yard, and writing some tutorials! Fun filled weekend!
Before I get started, I wanted to talk about the bug situation here on the farm! LOL! I have just about had it with all the flying insects this year. I’m not exactly a bug person. Yep, we all have things that freak us out...right? I like to think, that when a bug touches me, and I yell and carry on like a ninny, even Indiana Jones was petrified of snakes. So that makes me feel like it’s ok! No comments please! :)
I, however, am not as bad as my sister Kim! Now, let me just start off by saying I was’t always the Gent I am today. I was the baby in the family, I grew up with two older sisters. So, this qualified me as a genuine BRAT! What is a brother to do....OK, you know how I can get off point quickly so....Being the lovely brother I was and finding incredible amounts of joy by seeing my sisters squeal, I thought I would share this....
Back in the day...It was breakfast time and my sister Kim was helping mom get things ready. I was sitting watching Kim stand in front of the refrigerator. She was staring blankly inside. That’s when it hit me! I grabbed a newspaper rolled it up and quietly walked over behind my sister. I began beating the floor around her feet yelling, “There’s a cockroach on your foot! It’s on your leg!” Y’all, my sister did the most delightful, Grand Jete that even Anna Pavlova wouldn’t have been able to do! She jumped and screamed and waved her arms about and ...did I mention the screams....Oh the absolute and utter joy!!! This total sense of elation sent me running down the street with her behind me. I still have scars from where she clobbered me! :)
So, back to the bugs that are obviously loving my house for some reason, I’m assuming the mild winter we had in Texas has caused these winged creatures to come out by the thousands! There is this new flying bug that my nephew calls a Mosquito Eater! I have never seen these before this year and they are EVERYWHERE! Folks, these things are bigger than a glazed Virginia Ham on Easter day! I was getting ready for work yesterday morning when one of these...beasts just happen to land on the bald spot on the back of my head! I have no idea why my bald patch seems to call out to all flying insects to come and land! It’s like it’s a beacon flashing bright lights calling all bugs to stow their trays, put their seats in an upright position, bring down the landing gear...the runway is clear! Ooooh, I hate that! For the rest of the day, I could feel imaginary insects crawling on my head! The point, I guess what goes around comes around!
Well, I better get to it! I hope you all have an incredible day. I will try and get the YouTubes posted today...
Thanks for visiting!
