On a related theme our kid is extremely handy with joint compound, paint brushes, & electrical splices. *You can learn a lot from your pets.

Unfortunately that animal has been declared the most valuable male in the household. *Technically he's no longer a fully-equipped male but my precarious status does not warrant giving anyone any ideas by calling attention to that fact.

Indoor bunnies have a lifespan of 10-12 years. *This one is probably five years old (we got him from the Humane Society) and he could go to his great reward at any time-- usually it's cardiac arrest. *Not that I'm suggesting anything.

Good one! *

Actually our kid is the spitting-image carbon copy of my deceased mother, who has avenged herself from the grave by reducing me to a mere disposable carrier of her genes.

Martha and (),
DW had a kick from your comments - thanks.
And to be honest - there is some alien influence going on - I'm an alien (as most of you probably guessed from my not so proper English grammar), but my wife (who is a Yankee) is more aligned with "neat", "clean" and "organized" words.

Geez, I only have one kid and two neat cats and my house looks like a dirt MOAB hit it, too! That's why I posted a pic from grandma's house, DW would pitch a fit if I posted any recent pics from ours!

Re: Merry Christmas! Share some photos?

Saddams weapons of mass destruction could easily be hidden in my living room and nobody would ever find them.

Collide a 3000 square foot house full of stuff and the wifes 1500sq foot house into an 1800 square foot house, double the pets, add a baby, then throw in baby's first christmas multiplied by generous grandparents and a dad that cant stop buying him things.

Be fearful when others are greedy, and greedy when others are fearful. Just another form of "buy low, sell high" for those who have trouble with things. This rule is not universal. Do not buy a 1973 Pinto because everyone else is afraid of it.
