Jeff Foxworthy proud

Ok...I am sure most folks are familiar with Jeff Foxworthy and his "You might be a redneck if..." jokes. Well I guess my sweet OH was trying to supply some more lines for Mr. Foxworthy.

No doubt my OH is very handy to have around. He can "fix" almost anything and I am always amazed and very appreciative of the little projects he completes for me around the house, barn, and property...but...

Last week my daughter let him know that the handle on the toilet in her bathroom was broken and ask if he could please fix it. Well of course this was around 10:00 pm on a weeknight. So he gets ups from his chair and about 20 minutes later he calls our daughter to the bathroom to show her how to work the toilet. A few minutes later I hear my daughter start to laugh so loud and say "no way Dad!"

I get the bathroom to see this...

I started laughing too and he stated that at least it would work until the weekend. All I could think is "you might be a redneck if you use a yellow string for a toilet handle!"

Thank goodness it is the weekend and all has been restored!

That's all for now...come back soon.

Never a dull moment

Hi all...I know it has been awhile since I have posted and I hope this post finds all well in the blogging world. To bring you up-to-date (in a hurry) all is well here. It was kind of a lonely, but busy, Christmas this year because none of our children were home but they promise to be here next year. My son and oldest daughter are both serving in the U.S. Air Force and were unable to get leave to come home. My son has only been in the Air Force since last year and is stationed in Montana since July and did not have enough time in. My oldest daughter has been in the Air Force for 25 years and is currently stationed in Washington D.C. and did not put her request in on time. She was alittle upset about spending Christmas alone so our middle daughter ask if I would be upset if she flew up to be with her...well I told her I was upset but that her Dad and I would be fine and I did not want my oldest alone. I missed them but my hubby and I went out on actual dates Christmas weekend and spent time with my family on Christmas Eve and his family on Christmas Day so we were very busy!

The second thing that is going on is since I painted those few pieces of furniture I have become very interested in expanding my techniques! Must be the artist in me...I was going to get an art degree many years ago but got the MRS degree instead! So...I took some classes for decorative painting/faux finishes at a studio in Sugarland and I am hooked. With that, I have started another blog (to not fill this one up) for folks who might have an interest in this type of furniture. So if you get a chance, hop over to my other blog and give it a quick look if you have time. I hope you become a follower on that blog also.

Well...that's all for now.
