Local Auction

Tonight we took kids to a local auction.  Some of the antiques were incredible.

"Mom, Look it's a phone booth!  I never thought I'd see one of these in real life!  I've only seen these in movies!"

"Hey mom!  Did you have to watch this kind of TV when you were a kid?"

"Hey Mom, Do you think these gas pumps are from the Andy Griffith Show?"

"When I turn 16, I think I want a car like this one!"

Spring Break with Grandparents

My son spent a few days with parents while on Spring Break.  They took him by the cemetary where my grandparents are buried.  After looking around a while, he noticed a couple of new graves where the dirt was piled up.  He said, "Look Papaw!  A few of them have already busted out of the graves and gone on to heaven to be with Jesus!"

I'm not shooting Fords!

Easter bunny brought water blaster water gun this was almost time for supper tonight....son kept running in and filling up his gun and running back out....I thought he was just shooting the gun and watering the flowers at the same time....WRONG!!!  As I walked out to get him, he was standing out by the road aiming his gun at cars as they drove by and trying to spray them with water!  As I began to fuss at him and explain that I better not ever see him do that again....his dad walked into the room....He said "Son, what were you doing?"...Son said, "Don't worry daddy, I didn't shoot any Fords...I was only aiming at Chevrolet's!"
