Getting pictures taken tonight for the new directory at church. I ask Angie what shirt to wear, she says a red one.

I pick one out then she says it clashes with what she was going to wear, ok, so I pick out a blue one.

Then she says..."No-no, I am so done with that shirt"...huh? :chin:

My Dad always carved at the table and we kids would vie for the seat beside him where we could snitch the little bits that fell off. He'd load a plate and then pass it to Mother who served the veggies and gravy from her fancy silver serving dishes. Everyone had to wait until all were served for grace. By then it was all cold, of course.

Now we carve in the kitchen, get the whole works on the table, say grace and then start passing. It works out so much better but isn't quite as elegant.

Just finished building and installing a gate. It is :censored: freezing here at 25 degrees F and drop that several more degrees to include the wind chill factor :brr:, so I built it in my kitchen. What the heck. The X still hasn't fixed the oven so it's not like I can use it for cooking. The man is an amazing multi-tasker. He can be an absentee father and a slumlord all at once. JUST AMAZING!!! :rolleyes:

Annnddd, even though WY garnishes child support from the moment the divorce papers are signed, he managed to rip us off this month. The county goofed and thought it was done so they sent HIM a couple of refund checks instead of direct depositing in my account. HE didn't say a word to me and neither I nor HIS DAUGHTERS have heard from him since(he was supposed to call the baby and do something with her last week. My baby is hurting and that double ticks me off!!). Well, I got in touch with the County Clerk and got it straightened out, but I can forget about seeing that money. Gee, absentee + slumlord + now we can add DEADBEAT DAD to the list. :bomb:

So, let us bow our heads and pray, "God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change. Courage to change the things I can. And the wisdom to know where to bury the body of the SOB when he finally ticks me off for the last time!!! Amen"

Kinda funny, Bargoo, if you look up "Stupid" in the dictionary, you'll find his picture. Oxford added it after I reported that he taught me how to fire his 10mm. I shot a pop can from 50 yards the first time. I missed by about an inch to the left on the first shot then corrected and barely missed to the right by less the 1/2 an inch(it moved the can but didn't hit it). It was at that point, I think that it dawned on him how STUPID it is to teach your wife how to shoot your own handgun that you keep in your own house while you are cheating on her. Der, derpity, doo!! Moron!!! :dizzy:

We lived here when we first married then got a house. He wouldn't sell it but he hasn't done ANYTHING in the way of upkeep since we moved out 15 years ago. His old pick up is still out front where it has been sitting for the last 20 years. We call it "The Monument". :s:
