Myrick didnt speak any words, but instead began to sing "Every Praise." Though the kidnapper cursed at him and told him to shut up, the little boy kept singing, and continued for about three hours until the kidnapper let him out of the car.

Myrick ran to a nearby home and asked the resident to call his guardian.

According to FOX News the boy has now met "Every Praise" gospel singer Hezekiah Walker, and that the two sang the song together. Police have no leads on the suspect, FOX News reports, but they hope a sketch they have released will generate tips.

Potty Humor - 09/26/13

   So, I had the great joy of spending the day with my son on his field trip.  Furthermore, I got to chaperone six, count 'em, six boys!!!!!!    I could just end this blog right there and let your imaginations run wild. Believe me, there's no shortage of material when six boys get to run wild and free on a farm for four hours during school.

   We visited the Sam Davis Home in Smyrna.  Davis is known as the boy hero of the Confederacy.  His farm provides an amazing hands on experience of life in the mid 1800's.  We got to watch someone churn butter.  We learned how to wash clothes on a washboard.  We even got to help make soap.  We got to pet horses, watched pigs root in the mud, played in a barn, learned how a blacksmith molds hot metal, played with a cannon ball, and got our picture made with Abe Lincoln and Harriet Tubman. Wow, what a day.

    So, what does the title of this blog have to do with any of that?  Everything.  You see, we got to do all of that, but the real fun came when we visited THE OUTHOUSE.  Yay!

    Not just any outhouse, this was a super duper outhouse with three holes.  They were lined up side by side with a big sign that said, "Do Not Sit."  Afterall, that wood was probably rotten... the boys could have fallen in... there would be lawsuits and finger pointing and no more field trips.  So, what did the boys do?  Oh, they 'technically' followed the rules alright.  They, in unison, as if communicating telepathically, turned around, bent over and stuck their heads straight down in those holes.

    I quickly grabbed my Iphone to snap a picture of the wrong end of their bodies staring back at me.  (This will be good blackmail one day when they bring that first girl home to meet Mom.)  The reporter in me wanted to blurt out, "Did you know 40 thousand Americans are injured by toilets every year?"  (That's actually a true stat.)  But, I didn't.  I decided to let the journalist/mom/chaperone in me take a step back and just let boys be boys.

Why? Why would little boys want to stick their heads in what used to be a toilet?  We spent 15 minutes in this outhouse with the six taking turns rotating their sweaty faces from one hole to the next.   Now, mind you I had been on this same field trip two years prior with my daughter.  Do you think they stuck their heads in the latrine?  It never even crossed their minds.

   Curious about this dichotomy, I did a little research.  Psychologists say potty humor is a normal part of childhood development, especially for boys.  Another psychologist says talk of farts and poop brings them great joy.  It helps them develop their personality.

    So, at lunch, I asked, "So guys, what was your favorite thing today?"

   And, I'll end this blog right there.

NETHERLANDS-MARIJUANA CAFES

AMSTERDAM (AP) -- Sex and pot won't be going together -- at least not in Amsterdam. Officials in the Dutch city have won court permission to ban marijuana cafes in the Red Light district. Marijuana is technically illegal in the Netherlands. But possession of small amounts isn't prosecuted and pot is sold openly in so-called "coffee shops." But prostitution is legal. Amsterdam's mayor argues that brothels and pot cafes lead to crime. A court ruled in favor of the mayor yesterday, saying he can take action to protect public order.

OSPREYS' NEST

SANDY POINT, Md. (AP) -- If you can't beat 'em -- build for them. That's the view Maryland transportation officials are taking. The state Transportation Authority is considering a nesting platform for ospreys. The determined birds keep rebuilding their nests in front of a traffic camera pointed at the Chesapeake Bay Bridge. Officials have tweeted they're consulting with engineers about building a platform for the nesting ospreys. Crews have removed the nests three times, but the birds keep coming back. The birds have even attacked the traffic camera, which would cost six-grand to replace. Officials say the nesting platform would be nearby, but in a place that would be safer for any future chicks.

PARAKEETS STOLEN

MANASSAS, Va. (AP) -- It's a crime wave -- for the birds. Police in northern Virginia report 13 parakeets and six parakeet eggs have been stolen from a Manassas home. It's the second time bird bandits have struck in recent months. Police say two parakeets were stolen from another home in December. A Manassas police spokeswoman says officers are pursuing at least one lead in the latest case and hope to return the parakeets to their owner.
