I remember my Grandmother (grands raised me) saying about the clean underwear. Today I would tell her it's not a problem, because I don't wear any (GRIN, or maybe TMI).

I laughed till my sides hurt over these. They are SO funny. I'm sure this one takes the cake (or prize) for the week.

Speaking of week, did you ever get my message a few weeks back that Bleubeard and I received your PIF ATC? I didn't hear back, so am not sure you got the message. I hope you get it today.

I just read your comment. That house didn't have a clothes line. In fact, my current house is the first I have that has one. And YES, I agree. Now that I have a clothes line, I love this main floor setup. The laundry room is only a few feet and TWO steps down from the laundry room to the outside. However, back then, I had no clothes line, but I did have a brand new, great dryer. I probably wouldn't have found time to hang clothes on the line, anyway.

I read these out to hubby and we agreed - we've heard them often and it's so ridiculous the extent we go to get frustrations out. Happy smiles, cheers Chris and have a lovely week, Robyn

I am so sorry I didn't make it to your desk this week until now but in a way I am now glad as I got to see this post. It has given me a really good laugh but I do have one to add. 'When you pull a funny face you better be careful the wind doesn't change direction otherwise you will stay that way'. Thank you so much for the words of wisdom from our parents, they must of come from the same area as mine, because it all sounded like my parents. Thank you again, it really has made my day, my mother passed away 7 years ago and I still miss her dearly but I still have my dad and love him to bits every single day.

Hugs Eliza & Yoda

Eh? I know I commented on this last week as Hubby and I were having a good giggle. These are great and yes, I have repeated them in the past...usually to Hubby or the animals!
