We do not see alot of sheep around were I live.  Out of the blue Saturday night my little boy was in the floor (he is 4 yrs old) and said, Mommie I love sheep.  I said You do.  He said yeah they make a dumb noise but I like them.  My husband said, What does he know about sheep.  I said I do not know maybe he heard someone at school talking about them.  I told him S'alright if you like sheep baby.   Then he told me he was going to be a cowboy and I died out laughing.  My husband who knows nothing of BBM said What is so funny.  I said Oh nothing, our little boy wants to be a cowboy and loves sheep.  He of course did not get it. 

Then he was coloring and he said, Mommie am I going to fast.  I said, "Fast or slow I just like the direction you are going."  So now I am quoting BBM to my 4 year old.  He just looks at me and smiles.

Lately, I find myself using "Tell you what..." a lot when I try to come to an agreement with someone.

On one of my recent camping trip, I forgot to nail a couple of stakes and when I stand back and take a look, I said "Tent don't look right".  I was hoping someone named Jack would say, "Well it ain't going no where, let it be".

At work, we use pallet jacks to pull freights and in one incident, a coworker ask if a particular jack was mine, I said "No.  My Jack has a f*ckin' Twist to it".  Of course they had no idea what I was talking about and thought I was mad at something.

Yes, I find myself calling lots of things "darlin" now.....my dog, my grandkids, my friends,.......
Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect.

It means you've decided to see beyond the imperfection

I had beans for dinner a couple of nights ago -- good ones, limas cooked in the crock pot -- and went "mmm" like Ennis does when eating them.

Its fresh beans I'm allowed to eat, and what I'm sick of......I did ask the dietician if I could have baked beans, but she said "No (baked) beans".......

I had to spontaneously come up with a name for a hypothetical deceased relative today.

Uncle Harold.
Watch out. That poster has a low startle point.
