Poo Pieces - 05/09/14

    For any mom reading this, the title won't even make you flinch.  Others, well.... you may need to click out.   This blog is an  ode to all my fellow moms.
    First off, let me just say I looooooove being a mom.  I was so busy working on my career and so was he that my husband and I started our family late.  So, I'm incredibly blessed to have 2 healthy children, but I've just got to tell you... if we had started earlier...  I would have given the Duggars a run for their money.   I love this!
    The things my kids say, the things they do, the way they're learning to relate to the world around them is the most intriguing thing this curious journalist has ever and will ever be a part of. 
     So, why Poo Pieces as a title?  Because that's what I had to clean up today.  My dear husband left early before the rest of us were up.  The toilet in our master bathroom apparently was showing signs of malfunctioning, so since he was running late, he simply closed the lid and stacked 10 rolls of toilet paper on top of it. 
     Somehow, we were supposed to all figure out that that meant the commode was out of order.  When my son woke up, he was the first to run down to our room and use OUR toilet for some reason.  In one fell swoop he throws off the toilet paper rolls and hops on board for his morning ritual.  Then, he flushes.
     For the next 45 minutes or so.... you know it... I'm cleaning up poo pieces. 
     Happy Mothers Day to all the good and loyal moms out there who've done that and more, who answer the call of motherly duty every day whether it's to wipe a tear, give a hug, correct behavior or sneak some neck sugar from your babies....  Your work is leaving a legacy.... and I'll just end by saying thank goodness for Comet, Lysol Wipes, Bleach and Soft Scrub.  I kept them all in business today.

FAT BIKES

SHERIDAN, Wyo. (AP) -- Cold and snowy? To some it's perfect bike weather. A new style of bike is gaining traction for winter use -- it's the so-called fat bike first developed in Alaska. The bike gets its name from the 4-inch wide tires that can get a grip in snow or sand. The tires are about twice as wide as those on a conventional mountain bike. Jeff Stine is the co-owner of Backcountry Bike and Mountain Works in Sheridan, Wyoming. He tells the Sheridan Press a fat bike buyer can get two sets of wheels, for summer or winter use. But a winter bike could give your wallet a chill. Prices start at about $1,500.

WREATH THIEF

WESTERLY, R.I. (AP) -- The wreath thief has been busted. Police in Westerly, Rhode Island, report Christa Bradley turned herself in after a home security video was posted on Facebook. Police Chief Ed St. Clair says the video shows a woman walking up to Mary Sullivan's front door and walking off with her homemade wreath. The Westerly Sun reports Bradley is now charged with larceny under $1,500 and is due in court in about a month.

PISTOL PACKING HANDBAGS

TACOMA, Wash. (AP) -- Paula Summers has the purse -- for ladies who are packing. She's a Washington state private eye and found it difficult to carry a gun. Summers did some research and found a number of purses designed to carry concealed pistols. But she felt there had to be a better way to market them. So, she's created gun-packers.com -- "for women who pack heat." Her handbags range from $45 to just under a-grand. But there's more to carrying a gun than the right handbag. Summers tells The News Tribune potential gun-owners need to be trained and licensed according to their local laws.

MOOSE FRIENDS

GWINN, Mich. (AP) -- Sunshine and Jumper have some human buddies. Sunshine and Jumper are male moose in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Food is short, so some people pals have been putting out healthy snacks, like alfalfa, apples and carrots for the moose. The animals have become regulars at an area cabin. The cabin owner asked not to be named by the Grand Rapids Press, so no one will come around to bother the moose. Their human buddies say the moose now eat out of their hands.
