Oh kids .. they used to say the darnedest things, now they dont call, they dont text ... of course if they needed $$ ... you'd be the first one they'd contact .. x

She was probably just distracted. By any chance, she wasn't watching a rugby game...oops! I'm no help. Sorry.

I was never like this. I talked my mother's ear off. Wrote prolific letters. But my kids are like this. Gah!

Diane said...

Debbie said...

LOL @ Daryl..so darn true. They really don't want to be bothered by us unless they need too.
