hee hee ~ we've been cleaning out closets around here and going through old books, etc., boxing up things for charity before December 31st, so we can take our annual "charitable contribution" on our taxes next year. I kept most of my books, but Wayne got rid of lots of his [mostly books from college] about how to build a nuclear reactor, etc....I mean does anybody really need that! Lol - I hope they don't fall into the wrong hands, but they are from like 1972, so I'm sure much advancement has been made since then [I hope]. Anyway, I did my major book purge about a year ago, so I'm keeping the ones I have left now [even my "Brownie handbook" from when I was a little girl] ~ you never know when you'll need to whip out that pledge and recite it:
"I promise to do my best
to love God and my Country,
to help other people every day,
especially those at home." ~ The Brownie Girl Scout Promise
And then we came across this hilarious little book...it was given to Broc by my grandmother when he was a little boy. She loved to tell jokes and they would sit together and laugh for hours. She got the biggest kick out of him and he loved it! So here's a random "Little Willie Rhyme" from it...hope it makes you giggle:
Willie sawed a man in two.
Couldn't put him back with glue.
Said Mother as she mopped the floors,
"Can't you play these games outdoors?"
hee hee ~ and these were written for 9 year olds! Hilarious! Down right!!
And so...the winner of those awesome earrings from Monday's drawing was lucky #3 [which is Ellen]!! Yay Ellen!!!! E-mail me your address: Kathy@dornickdesigns.com and I'll have them on their way to you in two shakes of a lamb's tail! I hope you enjoy them!!
Happy Wednesday!! Stay Warm!!
♥ & peace always ~ Kathy
