      The baby said, “Thank you for taking such good care of me during the birth”.

      So this kid never says anything. He's ten years old and has never said a word his entire life. His parents are naturally overwrought with concern.

      They take him to specialists, they read books on psychology, they do everything they can to pique his interest, but nothing seems to work.

      They are literally at their wits end when one day at the dinner table, out of the blue, kid says -- "Soup's cold".

      Needless to say his parents are completely in shock and, of course, at the same time overjoyed. "He can talk", blurts out the Mom!

      Dad says, "After all this time, after all the therapy sessions, after everything we've done to try to get you to talk, how come you've never said anything"?

      Kid says, "Well, up until now everything's been fine".

      morning all
      looks like a rainy day, thanks for the morning brew, Mick. I leave this Friday, get back Tuesday, then thinking about going to a fiddle camp when I get back. Depends on how tired I am. Not looking forward to flying. Fencing project well under way!

      PQ, my mom would use the same phrase: "nothing startling". I have a daughter who's middle name is Drama!

      Pauly, glad you had a good visit with your mom, do your parents live a long distance from you? My parents have been gone awhile, still miss them but I still have my fond memories and kinda swept all the bad ones away!

      Lav, how's the varmint scene going, foxes? hawks? snakes? My chickens are doing the molting and some broody thing.

      Have good one all, hope PI, SK, Det, TT are doing well.

      MAE ALL...

      Mick...wish we lived closer to each other, I could just do my veggie shopping at you place. We're in for sunshine/afternoon T/storms and rain. Yes it does help the garden and I've managed to miss all the hail storms so far.

      Sam...glad to hear the fencing project is well underway. Have you sold off your herd or do you have someone watching things for you while you're away?

      Should be another quiet work day, just the kind I like. Have a good one....PPQP

      Re: w/c 29

      Good evening friends,

      Started the day off with another snake visitor - looked like the same snake, same nest box
      I have handled ALL kinds of nasty sh*t in my lifetime but I just can not handle a snake, we all have our limits!!!! I just wish the damn thing would be happy feasting on field mice & other small rodents but somehow it's developed a taste for eggs. I know chickens will eat worms & small snakes but these snakes we have here are 4-5 feet long. Way too big, haha!!!

      Mick, the rain truly does make your garden grow & all the weeds too. I will never catch up weeding garden beds, I'm not even going to try.
      Fresh veggies are the best. I baked up a half dozen ears of locally grown corn today, yum

      Sam, our rain is due to arrive around midnight & not stop until next Monday, ugh.
      I take it you don't enjoy flying? I hope you enjoy your trip anyway. I haven't seen any foxes since we put our hens in lock up, lol. The hawks are ever present here, eagles too.

      PQ, I actually have a vegan lasagna recipe that is darn good! I hadn't had any lasagna in years until I found a way to make cashew ricotta. I layer it with lots of veggies - red peppers, zucchini shredded carrots, spinach.
      I hope your day was as quiet as expected

      Pauly, you're not into road trips? Not everyone is, it's OK. The one trip I will never do again is driving from PA to FL. It's so much easier to fly, fares are cheap enough.
      I'm glad to hear you are looking for a new place to work. We all deserve a kinder place to work!

      I had a call from SK, she was released from the rehab today & is back home. She still has a lot of healing to do but she sounded good. I'm happy for her & happy to hear that her daughter did indeed visit her while she was hospitalized. She's still trying to find someone to help her fix her computer so she can logon here. She asked about you Pauly

      I'm still dog sitting, all is going well!
      Wishing everyone a nice night!

      Proof The World Is Nuts
      In Lebanon, men are legally allowed to have sex with animals, but the animals must be female. Having sexual relations with a male animal is punishable by death. (Like THAT makes sense.)

      In Bahrain, a male doctor may legally examine a woman's genitals, but is prohibited from looking directly at them during the examination. He may only see their reflection in a mirror. Do they look different reversed?)

      The penalty for masturbation in Indonesia is decapitation. (Much worse than "going blind!")

      There are men in Guam whose full-time job is to travel the countryside and deflower young virgins, who pay them for the privilege of having sex for the first time .
      Reason: under Guam law, it is expressly forbidden for virgins to marry. (Let's just think about this one for a minute; is there any job anywhere else in the world that even comes close to this?)

      In Hong Kong, a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill her adulterous husband, but may only do so with her bare hands. The husband's illicit lover, on the other hand, may be killed in any manner desired. (Ah! Justice!)

      Topless sales women are legal in Liverpool, England - but only in tropical fish stores. (But of course!)

      In Cali, Colombia, a woman may only have sex with her husband, and the first time this happens, her mother must be in the room to witness the act
      Makes one shudder at the thought.)

      In Santa Cruz, Bolivia, it is illegal for a man to have sex with a woman and her daughter at the same time. I presume this was a big enough problem that they had to pass this law?

      In Maryland, it is illegal to sell condoms from vending machines with One exception: Prophylactics may be dispensed from a vending machine only "in places where alcoholic beverages are sold for consumption on the premises." ( Is this a great country or what? Well . . . not as great as Guam!)

      Banging your head against a wall uses 150 calories an hour. (Who volunteers for this stuff?)

      Humans and dolphins are the only species that have sex for pleasure. (Is that why Flipper was always smiling?)

      The ant can lift 50 times it's own weight, can pull 30 times its own weight and always falls over on its right side when intoxicated.(From drinking little bottles of . ?)

      An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.

      Starfish don't have brains.

      And, the best for last...

      Turtles can breathe through their butts .
      (And I thought I had bad breath in the morning!)

      Little Johnny's father noticed that Johnny was spending way too much time playing computer games. In an effort to motivate Little Johnny into focusing more attention on his schoolwork, his father said, "When Abe Lincoln was your age, he was studying books by the light of the fireplace."

      Little Johnny replied, "When Abe Lincoln was your age, he was The President of the United States."

      A man hails a taxi, and gets inside.
      "5th and Main, please."

      "You again?" says the taxi driver. "This is the 4th time I've dropped you and your wife off at work."

      "Really? My wife doesn't work."

      "Yes, she does. I drop her off there everyday, about an hour after I drive you to work."

      "There?"

      "Behind the Tillman & Lane department store."

      "Interesting," says the man. "Tell you what. Pick me up in two hours, and I want you to show me where my wife works." So two hours later, the taxi arrives and takes the man to whorehouse behind Tillman & Lane.

      "Hold on," said the driver. "I'll be right back."

      There's a huge commotion after the driver goes in, with cursing and screaming and the sounds of breaking furniture. The driver comes out with a woman in a headlock.

      "That's not my wife!" exclaims the man.

      "I know. She's mine. I'm going back in for yours."

      Some guy bought a new fridge for his house. To get rid of his old fridge, he put it in his front yard and hung a sign on it saying: "Free to good home. You want it, you take it." For three days the fridge sat there without even one person looking twice at it. He eventually decided that people were too un-trusting of this deal. It looked to good to be true,
      so he changed the sign to read: "Fridge for sale $50." The next day someone stole it. Caution...

      While looking at a house, my brother asked the real estate agent which direction was north because, he explained, he didn't want the sun waking him up every morning. She asked, "Does the sun rise in the north?" When my
      brother explained that the sun rises in the east, and has for sometime, she shook her head and said, "Oh, I don't keep up with that stuff."

      I used to work in technical support for a 24/7 call center. One day I got a call from an individual who asked what hours the call center was open. I told him, "The number you dialed is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week." He responded, "Is that Eastern or Pacific time?"
      Wanting to end the call quickly, I said, "Uh, Pacific" .

      My colleague and I were eating our lunch in our cafeteria, when we overheard one of the administrative assistants talking about the sunburn she got on her weekend drive to the shore. She drove down in a convertible, but "didn't think she'd get sunburned because the car was moving". .


      My sister has a lifesaving tool in her car it's designed to cut through a seat belt if she gets trapped. She keeps it in the trunk...

      My friends and I were on a beer run and noticed that the cases were discounted 10%. Since it was a big party, we bought 2 cases. The cashier multiplied 2 times 10% and gave us a 20% discount....


      I was hanging out with a friend when we saw a woman with a nose ring attached to an earring by a chain. My friend said, "Wouldn't the chain rip out every time she turned her head?" I explained that a person's nose and ear remain the same distance apart no matter which way the head is
      turned...

      I couldn't find my luggage at the airport baggage area. So I went to the lost luggage office and told the woman there that my bags never showed up. She smiled and told me not to worry because she was a trained professional and I was in good hands. "Now," she asked me, "has your plane arrived yet?"...

      While working at a pizza parlor I observed a man ordering a small pizza to go. He appeared to be alone and the cook asked him if he would like it cut into 4 pieces or 6. He thought about it for some time before responding. "Just cut it into 4 pieces; I don't think I'm hungry enough to eat 6 pieces.

      MAE ALL....Is this a white rabbit moment? Not sure of the definition.

      Lav...gotta say cashew ricotta sounds interesting. I love cashews. A chicken will eat a small snake Who knew! Yes it was a nice quiet day.

      Mick...Isn't that a new bandsaw to begin with? You were probably looking for a new project anyways. We're supposed to mount the plaques tonight but as we're headed up to 31C today with a volatile storm with winds and hail forecast for early evening we may have to put it off for a couple of days. Long weekend will see no storms but I don't know how many garden members will be around. Oh well, we'll work it out.

      Pauly...no drama for this mama sounds like a mantra to live by.

      Hopefully another quiet day and maybe a chance of some card playing this afternoon. Shout out to the rest of us and have a good one....PPQP

      Good evening Abbers,

      All that rain they promised must have taken a wrong turn somewhere, I'm OK with that.
      Still dog sitting & all that too.

      Mick, I don't think we're supposed to harm or kill those black snakes. They do serve a purpose in keeping the varmit population down around here, ha ha! No sightings today so my heart rate remained steady!!
      YB has a band saw in his garage along with many other sharp objects. I don't like those things either, Lol
      This is a brand new month so White Rabbits

      Pauly, are you watching the boys this week. It feels weird to not have my grandsons here all week. They are vacationing up on the coast of Maine this week, nice.

      PQ, you have to start with raw cashews, the roasted, oiled, salty ones won't work to make the ricotta. I just soak them for a few hours then toss them in the blender with some seasonings, etc like this:

      CASHEW RICOTTA CHEESE - THE SIMPLE VEGANISTA
      I use it for anything calling for ricotta. Even YB likes it, haha!
      Hope your day was a good one.

      Have a nice night everyone!

      Det...where you at? Patiently waiting for pics.

      Cancelled the plaque mounting for tonight, good thing with rain/hail hitting about 4pm. It's moved off for now but looks like it'll be back. Yup rumbles have started again.
      Have a peaceful evening all....PPQP
