Happy Mother's Day and No One Won my Contest

Happy Mother's Day to all! My husband and kids made scrambled eggs with the works, and it was delicious.

No one won the contest below!! Believe it or not, I am the guilty party in #2 and #7. The rest break down like this.

#1. My sister
#3. My husband, while dining in Coralville, IA
#4. My good friend's son
#5. My father. His Dad was a professional plumber and my Dad learned quite a bit on the job from him. While watching my Dad attempt to clear the blocked sewer line, I said "Dad, why don't you just call a professional?". His angry reply was "I AM A PROFESSIONAL!!" just before all Hell, and sewage, broke loose coating his workshop with slimy black gunk. It's become a well-worn phrase in our family.
#6. My Dad's good friend Bob, much to the delight of his onlooking kids.
#7. Yes, it was MY HUSBAND who did this!!!!
#9. My Mom, with me in the back seat with my feet up in the hatch, bandaged, after bunion surgery in 1986. She just wouldn't listen to her smart mouth kid in the back seat.
#10. My brother. I'm sure he's never forgotten it.

Happy Mother's Day!

He told the kids you had crabs? He lived in Iowa City (crabs capital of the Midwest) and didn't know that they weren't chiggers? That is priceless.

Ha! Well, I'm glad it was chiggers and not crabs!

I hope you've had a happy mothers day.

Those were so funny. I guess #2 could be worse. A couple of years ago, someone found a lizard in their salad at the Applebee's in Coralville.

Happy Mother's Day girlfriend!

I got a couple of new suits to wear on the CrossRoads show. I needed them too, the other ones were cutting me in half! I'm a 12, but refuse to admit it until I try to sit down or bend over and darn near kill myself!
