Something cute

An engineer died and ended up in Hell. He was not pleased with the level of comfort in Hell, and began to redesign and build improvements. After awhile, they had toilets that flush, air conditioning, and escalators. Everyone grew very fond of him.

One day God called to Satan to mock him, "So, how's it going down there in Hell?"

Satan replied, "Hey, things are great. We've got air conditioning and flush toilets and escalators, and there's no telling what this engineer is going to come up with next." God was surprised, "What? You've got an engineer? That's a mistake. He should never have gotten down there in the first place. Send him back up here."

"No way," replied Satan. "I like having an engineer, and I'm keeping him."

God threatened, "Send him back up here now or I'll sue!"

Satan laughed and answered, "Yeah, right. And just where are YOU going to get a lawyer?"

Oh it's hot outside!

It has hit 90 degrees here everyday for the past week. It is to hot to be outside doing anything. My den has AC but not the rest of the house. Yesterday I went to visit Beth's boyfriend, his name is Mr. Nap. When I got back don't you know that my heathens were so mad at me for leaving them alone that they tore up the den. They had everything off of my desk and all over the floor. I have a box of note paper and they had that down. To top it off they had taken the paper out of it and it was all over the floor. Talk about having to pick up a mess. They even had my web cam down. I sent them all to their corners and told them they better lay down and leave me alone the rest of the day. Roo thought she would lay down where ever she wanted to but I pointed to her blanket and made her get up on it. Midnight thought she was going to crawl up in my lap and go to sleep. I told her no way and every time she tired I put her down. But I was able to get her to lay down and be still also. It was several hours later before any of them dared to move. These little heathens are all looking to die before the summer is over. But I still love them and I would not trade them for anything.

I would like to tell you all about Pet Care RX web site. About a month ago I bought some things from them. One thing I bought was four collars in four different colors. The problem was that three of the collars came in right and the forth collar was totally wrong. I called their 800 number and spoke to customer service. The rest of what happened was what totally shocked me. They told me to keep the collar they had shipped and that they was shipping me out the right one. Ok, I expected to wait a couple of days for it to get here in the mail. Boy was I shocked when the collar arrived the next morning. Not only that it had a coupon for $5 off my next order and some toys for the baby. I have never seen a customer service as good as theirs.

There is also another site I would like to tell you about. It is called eBay Shopping & Discovery. I found this site this morning and I would recommend it to any of you who shop on eBay. There is only one page to the site and what you do is you put in the item that your looking for. Then it pulls up the items that match. When you click on the thumbnail of the item you want to look at, it opens the item up in a new window so you still have your search  so you can go back to it easily. You can then narrow down your search. I even found two items I wanted this morning. I bid on one of them and I e-mailed the owner of the other item asking them a question about it. I really loved the site and sure will be using it again.

As you all know I love my fur babies and I was totally devastated when I lost Bear. My daughter had e-mailed me a photo of a pure black kitten just minutes before Bear passed away. I had not seen the e-mail yet or would have told her no way. Well that kitten is now my Midnight who is a loving, playful heathen. Oh, but I do love her. I found another site this morning for anyone that is looking to get a new pet. This site is Petfinder. There is a search box on the left hand side of the screen and you put in what kind of animal your looking for and you put in your zip code and then it gives you a listing of animals that match your description in your local area. It is an easy way to find out what pets there are that are up for adoption. It will save you countless trips to different shelters looking for what you want only not to be able to find it. This way you know if they have what you want or not. In today's world saving gas is a must and this is sure one way to save gas. I would just make sure that I called ahead to double check that the animal was still there. My pets have a gift for your today. So keep reading to see what you will be getting.

Explanation of Life

The cow said: 'That's kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back the other forty?'And God agreed again.On the fourth day, God created man and said:'Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give you twenty years.'But man said: 'Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makes eighty, okay?'

'Okay,' said God, 'You asked for it.'

So that is why for our first twenty years we eat, sleep, play and enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years we slave in the sun to support our family. For the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren. And for the last ten years we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.Life has now been explained to you.There is no need to thank me for this valuable information. I'm doing it as a public service.

God Bless the USA

Yes I said that and that is just what I mean. this country has let a small handful of people take this country down and destroy the values of it. We are Americans, We speak English not Spanish, French, German or any other  language. Our products and our services should not have to be written in 2 or more languages just so that those who don't want to learn how toe read and write English don't feel left out. If you don't want to feel left out then go to school and learn to read and write English. I'm not talking about other countries here. for if I went to live in Germany I would have to learn how to read and write German. I don't think that we should have to take "In God We Trust" out of everything or off of everything in our Government. This country was founded on a strong belief in God and I think it should stay that way. You want an example of why it should stay that way. Just look around you. Look at the way the children of this country act today. the government say you can't spank your child your might hurt their little bitty feelings. Well wake up America hurt the feeling of those young people. Slap the crap out of them when they think they are grown enough to tell you, their parent, what to do. When they steal something take a belt to their butts. My God we all lived threw it and look at how we turned out. This country is going to hell in a hand basket and we the majority are letting it. We are letting a few dictate to us how we should live. We need to kick all of these crooks out of office and put some down to earth honest people in office. Some who will get off their behinds and stop being bribed by Big Business. If Big Business can't make it without government support then they need to go out of business just like the little business does. Maybe if those at the top of the Big Businesses were not putting so much in their own pockets it would not have a problem staying in business. Fence off our borders, close our gates, stop supporting the world and starting taking care of our own. We don't need to depend on foreign oil to make it. We have enough right here if the government would get off their lazy butts and let the oil companies drill for it. And then you want to know why gas prices are so high. As your government leaders why they won't let us drill for oil right here at home or off shore. Put your foot down and stop taking the BS that the government hands out. Fight back against them. I think everyone who goes to the polls should put in a write in that says "none of the above". Start taking a look at how the people in your district are voting and if they are voting to support the world and not voting to support those here at home then kick them out of office. Why must we support everyone else while we have born and raised Americans starving to death.

Ok enough of my venting. We have some freebies for you. I have one and Beth has one over on her blog too. These clusters go with the Yankee Doodle kit. I hope that you enjoy them. Please leave some love if you download the freebie. We always like reading what you have to say.


40% off sale

We are also having a store wide sale on all our things at Digi By Designs. I do believe that most of the designers there are having a 40% off sale for the weekend. So hurry on over and see what you can find. While your there check out the grab bags. They are only $2 each. Trust me when I say you will get top quality things for that low price. We had to tie rope around the grab bags because they are jammed so full of stuff they are bursting at the seams. I think we managed to get everything stuffed back into Tracy's bag. Her stuff was all over the floor her bag is so full.

New Layout and Freebie

Roo is such a mommy's girl. She can't stand to be away from me. God forbid when I leave the house she really gets upset. She would be happy if mommy never left the house. The other day on my walk I still had the camera turned on when I came threw the door. This is the first thing I saw and just take a look at this face. If looks could kill I would be dead. You see the discontent on her face because mommy left her. Kit used was Poppies by Acorn Designs and the Template used was Curth simple stacks template freebie 9. The simple stacks templates can be found at Digi By Design. Each one make 2-4 by 6 layouts. They are really great for brag books. Our Poppy kit is not in the store yet.
