Girls + Boys + Family = artillery?

Lately, I’m finding it a challenge to come up with stuff to write that will give me less and less commenters.
This should do it.

This morning, while driving to school someone {who shall remain nameless} was digging in her purse for chapstick and pulled out something totally out of the ordinary. Not to mention, unsanitary as heck.

She said: ewww….how the heck did this get in here?
It was discarded out the window, and then we both busted out laughing.
Can you guess what it was?
I’ll not keep you in suspense for too long.


My FIL and his wife had a big party this past weekend. Ya’ll should have been there….live music, seafood cooked  every which way, fun people like me….just fabulous.
{home-made hush puppies!}

Linds and Cousin Bryan. {Puddin’}
Anyhoo….Lindsay brought her newest beau to the party. As soon as we got out of the car, my FIL walked to the new beau, stuck out his hand to greet him and said: 
You’ve got a beard, you are too old for my Grandaughter”

I didn’t even have to look at Lindsay…I could hear her eyes rolling already.  Just 40 minutes prior, I was explaining to the new Beau that I know how to shoot a gun. Yeah, we are like that; threatening.
{I refrained form showing him my shank collection. Are you proud of me?}

So later on in the party, my FIL comes out wearing this shirt for all to see:
“Guns don’t kill people, Grandpas with pretty Grandaughter’s DO”
That is a true story.
Speaking of Beau’s, Lolo’s B-friend is home again for 2 weeks, we have all missed him. 
  Linds and her ‘big Brother’

After this visit he is being shipped off to Jolly old England for two years. He will be home every six months for a visit though…..and we are thankful that he is going to England and NOT the desert! I just hope he likes his tea with crumpets.

Ok, did you almost forget about the disgusting item found in someones purse? {NOT MINE!!!}
It starts with TOE and ends with NAIL.

Gag me. Gag you. Gag everyone!

Have a great weekend doing whatever it is you do when I’m not around. Oh, and give yourself a pedicure…those toes are looking a bit ragged. 🙂

I’m off to clean out my car and my purse….someone has made me paranoid about what I might find!

  1. I LOVE your FIL's t-shirt!! Where in the world did he get it? I'd love to get one for hubby that says \”dads\” instead of grandpas. We've already decided Greg will be sitting in the living room cleaning one of his guns when the girls will be picked up by boys. I might have to start collecting shanks… 😉

  3. I got a mani once and went back to work. Visited several classrooms and had a conference with the teacher in each room. AFTER I got home, I looked in the mirror and saw a fingernail perfectly placed in my bangs. Have never told anyone else that story.

  6. You're fun. I'm so glad I took a few moments off from unpacking to come visit you! You always make me laugh Miss Suz!ANDI did get a pedicure just last week…so there!Hugs and Happy Monday! Enjoy the time change.


  7. I don't have any grandaughters, but if I did I would certainly want a t-shirt like your FIL has. But to be honest, I almost feel sorry for Lo's and Lind's beaus.


  8. Ya gotta love Grandpa's shirt! Too cool!!!Farm Boy used to get out a shot gun to clean each time a fella came to pick us Social Butterfly. It's a wonder she had any second dates…heeehehehehe!Men and their daughters!God bless ya and have a sunshiny kinda day!!! :o)


  9. Hi Suz, I'm trying to catch up after two trips in a month… Yipes!!!!Your FIL's T-shirt is awesome… My Hubby has a T-shirt which he put on right after his daughter's wedding. His t-shirt says: Bank of DAD is Closed!!!!Cannot imagine what you found in your purse —but I know that I've found many odd and weird things in my purse all through the years!!!!!Hugs,Betsy


  10. So the new beau didn't make the photo call for this post – was he too busy running from you FIL's gun, or is he camera-shy? ;)I am going to hold on to the hope that it was a FINGERnail, not a toenail…and at least it was a biodegradable item that you threw out of the window! (I knew it had to be \”green.\” Eeew – not that kind of green.)Love your new blog-header design. You are always keeping it fresh – so thoughtful you are!


  11. Ha, ha, your FIL is funny, but I'll bet your daughters' boyfriends are a little disturbed. Sending daughters out on dates is disturbing in itself. I might have hinted that I knew how to shoot, except everyone would have known it was a total lie.
