Because I’m a man, when I lock my keys in the Car, I will fiddle with a coat hanger long After hypothermia has set in. Calling AAA is not an option. I will win.

Because I’m a man, when the car isn’t running Very well, I will pop the hood and stare at the Engine as if I know what I’m looking at. If another man shows up, one of us will say to The other, “I used to be able to fix these things, But now with all these computers and Everything, I wouldn’t know where to start.” We will then drink a couple of beers and break Wind, as a form of holy communion.

Because I’m a man, when I catch a cold, I need someone to bring me soup and take Care of me while I lie in bed and moan. You’re a woman. You never get as sick As I do, so for you, this is no problem.

Because I’m a man, I can be relied Upon to purchase basic groceries at the store, Like milk or bread. I cannot be expected To find exotic items like “cumin” or “tofu.” For all I know, these are the same thing…

Because I’m a man, when one of our Appliances stops working, I will insist on taking It apart, despite evidence that this will just cost Me twice as much once the repair person Gets here and has to put it back together.

Because I’m a man, I must hold the Television remote control in my hand while I watch TV. If the thing has been misplaced, I may miss a whole show looking for it, Though one time I was able to survive by Holding a calculator instead (applies to engineers only).

Because I’m a man, there is no need to ask Me what I’m thinking about. The true answer is always either sex, cars, sex, guns, sex, Sports or sex. I have to make up something Else when you ask, so just don’t ask.

Because I’m a man, you don’t have to Ask me if I liked the movie. Chances Are, if you’re crying at the end of it, I didn’t… And if you are Feeling amorous afterwards … Then I will certainly at least remember the Name and recommend it to others.

Because I’m a man, I think what you’re wearing Is fine. I thought what you were wearing five Minutes ago was fine, too. Either pair of Shoes is fine. With the belt or without it, Looks fine. It does not make your ass look Too big. It was the pasta and potatoes and Margaritas that did that. Your hair is fine. You look fine. Can we just go now?

Because I’m a man, and this is, after all, The year 2009, I will share equally in the Housework. You just do the laundry, the Cooking, the cleaning, the vacuuming, And the dishes, and I’ll do the rest. Like Wandering around in the garden with a Beer, wondering what to do.

This has been a public service message for women hoping to better understand men.

Thanks to my friend, Terry, who sent this to me.

Welcome to the Christmas edition of getting to know your friends.

Okay, here's what you're supposed to do, and try not to be a SCROOGE!!! Just copy  and paste into a new post..Change all the answers so that they apply to you.

1. Wrapping paper or gift bags? People wrap gifts?

2. Real tree or Artificial? Artificial, but the cats still climb it!

3. When do you put up the tree? A week or two before Christmas

4. When do you take the tree down? Usually the weekend after New Year’s.

5. Do you like eggnog? Eggnog. Yummmmm. And Christmas cookies.

6. Favorite gift received as a child? I was spoiled. I can't think of a gift that was better than any of the gifts I received as a child. My parents would go to New York once a year for Dad's work, and Mom would go and spend days shopping at FAO Schwartz. My sister and I got the neatest gifts ever.
Everything from a really cool chemistry set (they don't sell them like that anymore!) to Steiff stuffed animals (oh, how I wish we had kept them in pristine shape instead of playing with them, I'd be rich! But, raggedy old stuffed animals, even Steiff, don't last forever.) Oh, and Blitzen, our dog, got him for Christmas!

7. Hardest person to buy for? My husband. He already has everything!

8. Easiest person to buy for? Our son, Andy and his fiancee' , Ashes. I lurves them!

9. Do you have a nativity scene? Yes, Several. I hope that I can find the best one in the basement of the old house somewhere, I have not seen it for a few years. I love nativity scenes!

10. Mail or email Christmas cards? Neither, however, I think I'm going to take a couple of my wintery photos and make them into Christmas cards and send them. Maybe. If I get around to it!

11. Worst Christmas gift you ever received? No Comment. Some people should just give money. Shopping is not for everyone.

12. Favorite Christmas Movie? Miracle on 42nd Street (is that the right street?)


13. When do you start shopping for Christmas? When I see something interesting. Usually on December 23rd

14. Have you ever recycled a Christmas present? You can recycle Christmas Presents?

15. Favorite thing to eat at Christmas? Bourbon Balls

16. Lights on the tree? Yes. Definitely yes.

17. Favorite Christmas song? LIttle Town of Bethlehem

18. Travel at Christmas or stay home? I would always rather be at home. But that seldom happens. SIgh.

19. Can you name all of Santa's reindeer's? Yup.

20. Angel on the tree top or star? I think currently it is a star. But it has changed thru the years. I have to get the ornament box out.

21. Open presents on Christmas Eve or morning? Christmas morning with husband and his family. Whenever we can get with Andy and Ashes to open theirs.

22. Most annoying thing about this time of the year? People seem to think that you have to do everything, go to every party, buy gifts for everyone. Too many people in too big a hurry. I hate to shop anytime of the year, but right before Christmas it is horrible!

23. Favorite ornament theme or color? Lots of colored ornaments of all types. Especially the pretty old-fashioned glass ones. I love Santas. Used to have a collection.

24. Favorite for Christmas dinner? If I had Christmas, I would cook a lovely big rib roast, Yorkshire Pudding, a potato casserole that my Mom always made that was wondrous. Cloverleaf rolls, little cinnamon rolls. Spinach casserole. Green beans. Cookies for dessert with cold, cold milk.


25. What do you want for Christmas this year? Peace and quiet. Energy. Yeah, and a sewing machine, since I'm going to be a grandmother.

26. Who is most likely to respond to this? I don't know.

27. Who is least likely to respond to this? John!



Tag-O-Rama

I like blogging again.  So much so that I’m even going to play Tag with Amanda and 7 as yet to be named friends. I have been reading Amanda for years.  Her newest blogeration is Sleeping in Sydney.

Amanda is one heckuva cook.  I think I met her when I first started the Carnival of the Recipes and she sent the most yummy recipes to me.  I kinda wish she was here in Kansas with me now, as I’m pretty sure she is a much better cook and it is Thanksgiving, after all!

Anyways, today she has tagged me for the following:

The rules:
1. Post the rules on your blog.
2. Tell 7 random things about yourself.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post.
4. Pass on the tag.

7 Random things about moi:

1.  Our son and our future daughter-in-law are here for just the day.  They both have to work tomorrow morning in Manhattan, Kansas (The Little Apple) and it’s a couple of hours from here. They are pregnant with my (please note the "MY") Grandson, Miles.  I adore all three of them, and I hope they have fun with John and I today.

2. The chickens are revolting.  No, not really, some of them are molting, and that is kind of revolting because they have these odd little spikes of feathers yet to be sticking from their necks!  Our chickens are not for dinner.  Ever.  They are for eggs.  When I get them all laying enough, I can sell the eggs and buy feed for them.  Someday, I will break even.  Hopefully, I’ll make money.

3. My dearest husband says I make a better photographer than a farmer.  Maybe.  I did a Senior photo for a friend’s daughter this year - here it is:


You can tell me if I’m any good at that. I suspect that shooting Senior portraits might be a decent moneymaker. I don’t know. I prefer landscapes and nature: , but so does every other photographer on earth!

  1. The darned “R” key on this Dell Inspiron keeps popping off the keyboard. I have replaced it once, and now it is happening again - does anyone else have this problem? Laptop is only about 14 months old!

  2. Burrs. I really hate burrs. I love the farm. Love the woods. Love the fields. Hate the burrs. ugh.

  3. I have to finish thawing the turkey!! It never thaws in the fridge like it is supposed to, so the bird is in the sink, covered with cold water to speed things up. I also need to find a recipe for dinner rolls. Hopefully I can use the bread machine for the mixing and raising. Oh, gosh, I just realized my son used whole-wheat flour to make his pie crust for the pumpkin pie. That will be interesting!

  4. I can out in the goat pasture and watch those goofy critters for hours, with my dogs at my side. Actually, I can watch the chickens for hours, too. They have some kind of weird pecking order. And the top rooster or hen is always being challenged by some young upstart, much noise and flapping of wings occurs.

So, now I get to pick 7 people to tag. Hmmmm. FBL, Cassandra, John of Argghhh!, Stacy, Right Girl, Tammy and Greta.
