Rolling On The Floor Laughing My Bum Off - 11/04/13

     Not a day goes by without our kids saying something that is fall on the floor funny.
     Take this weekend for example.  My sweet daughter was reading her Bible.  She recently attended Bible Blast at church and they gave her a new one, so she's been reading independently these last few weeks.  I walk into her room and she says, "Mom, I feel like I'm reading another language."  I said, "I know honey, it seems like that in some parts of the Bible."  She then says, "You know what.  If you hand me a highlighter right now, I can correct ALL of these run-on sentences."  ROFLMBO
     Just a few weeks ago at breakfast, she says, "Mom, did Nana & Papa have a car when you were little?"  Without skipping a beat, my husband chimes in: "Nope, just a horse and buggy."  Really?  Does my daughter really think I'm THAT old?  Doesn't she know the 40's are the new 30's?   I know we had kids late in life, but geez.  What's she going to say when we're 60?  ROFLMBO
      My son is funny too.  One day he woke up in a grumpy mood.  I said, "You woke up on the wrong side of the bed."  He declared, "I did not.  I was in the middle."  ROFLMBO
      And this one happened several years ago when he was in preschool, but it still makes us laugh.  We had gotten KFC on Sunday for a picnic & hike on the Natchez Trace.  We had some leftover so I packed a chicken leg in his Monday lunch.  His teacher said, "Did you go to Kentucky Fried Chicken?"   With such innocence he said, "No, I got this in Franklin, Tennessee."  ROFLMBO 
      Then there was the time my parents pulled out a very ripe banana to eat.  He says, "Does that have caramel on it?"     ROFLMBO
       Finally, one more from this weekend.  We're at dinner Saturday night and my husband, like many men, has an Adam's Apple.  My daughter says, "Daddy, can you make your Applebee go down?"  ROFLMBO
       I feel so blessed to have these little laughter makers under my roof.

BASE-THANKSGIVING

MINOT, N.D. (AP) -- Scores of seniors are joining the Air Force -- for Thanksgiving. North Dakota's Minot Air Force Base will be playing host to area senior citizens for Thanksgiving Day.

CROSS-COUNTRY BIKERS

KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) -- Dean and Taryn Hatcher have the mettle to pedal -- cross-country. The father-daughter team covered 4,200 miles, riding their bikes from Washington state to the Florida Keys. They finished yesterday and lifted their bikes above their heads as supporters cheered. The 59-year-old Hatcher and his 20-year-old daughter say they were inspired by reports about the unmet needs of veterans. Along the way, they met with veterans and raised money for the organization Hope For The Warriors.

FORT DRUM-WOOD ENERGY

FORT DRUM, N.Y. (AP) -- "Wood" you? Could you? The Army can and does. The wood in this case is from trees and is supplying all the electricity used at Fort Drum in northern New York State. It's part of the Pentagon's green energy initiative. A suburban Albany utility company has converted the formerly coal-fired power plant at Fort Drum. Instead of fossil fuels, the generators are fired by wood scraps from the timber industry. Officials say the biomass facility has also created nearly 200 jobs.

COOKBOOK TESTERS

NEW ORLEANS (AP) -- When it comes to good cooks, frat brothers probably don't rank high on your list. That's why cookbook author Kit Wohl turns to the members of Tulane University's Zeta Psi fraternity. The recipes need to be tested, so who better than kitchen-challenged frat brothers? Wohl's eighth cookbook in her "New Orleans Classic" series is now out. Wohl tells The Times-Picayune if the novice chefs a have problem, she knows the recipe has to be rewritten. Wohl says a couple of her recipe testers have gone on to culinary school.
