    Weedy, that sucks as a 'family dynamic'. It's being uppity, of course, and need not happen more than once.

    :snowman:Lazy L, I think the hitch in your wife's giddyup is caused by a confusion of formulas for the occasion.

    Formula #1: Guests move in at her first move at the chore and start cleaning up - without asking. Wife says "You don't need to do that", makes no further protest unless she wants to start an argument.
    Formula #2: Guests make no move, but make an offer to help. Wife says"Thank you, the dishwasher is over there."

    Probably not, I already heard one of the grand children already asked for it.
    And it wasn't the one who had been in the Air Force either.
    So I asked Uncle if I could stitch his name, dates of service in it.
    As part of my label,
    my name, dates of service as the presenter.
    He was thrilled that I thought of something so special.
    He already contacted his lawyer, the grandson who had been in the Air Force is getting it.
    I told him I was good with that.
    He also told me that he figured it out that they hadn't asked me to make his Quilt of Valor.
    That when he had changed somethings in his will, some of them where in for big surprises.
    Told him that was between him, his lawyer.

    I know a woman who decided that a house in her family should be hers when the owner, her dad, died. She was the only daughter and thought her brothers shouldn't get it. She and her dad went to the lawyer to get the will changed. She said the lawyer looked at her and said, "You cannot be here when there is a discussion about your dad's will when you are one of the heirs."

    They didn't call it ' The Family Circus ' for nothing in the funny papers.

    My mother in law does that and then she sends "hubby" an email to complain that we won't help. Hubby tries to delegate them so I don't see them but they still show up on my phone.

    Scuse me while I kiss this guy, yep.
    And Stairway to Heaven was basically a total loss to me -- when I was a younger punk.
    CCR's Down on the Corner, I swear I can't even begin to tell you how badly I misheard Mr. Fogerty.
    Misheard lyrics is an actual website but I'm crying now.
    edited to add: I laugh so hard I cry.

    I can remember when my Grandma had those fuzzy toilet covers.
    Hers were pink and covered the tank and seat.
    When the grandsons visited she always took them off for some reason. :)
    We have a bidet that attaches to the toilet bowl under the seat.
    It is cold water only and I thought that would be a problem but surprisingly it's not.

    You wouldn't believe the lyrics that were made up or imagined for this song. especially considering the times in the early 1960s.

    I didn't have money to spend on records and tapes when I was young, and in South Dakota, Country and Western was about the only choice on the radio. Saturdays we got Soul Train (go figure that in South Dakota) and American Band Stand on Saturdays that I could listen to or watch when I was doing some house work or ironing. So there is a whole bunch of music I kind of missed or know very little about.

    I only recently learned about Eric Clapton's song, "Tears in Heaven," although that song was from the 90's.

    Government shutdown!!!!!! World will end. Henny Penny run for it!!!!
    Now they say a partial shutdown. But stil...
    Yesterday I heard it is a total of 4,000 nonessential employees that are affected.
    So I looked up on Al Bore's Internet, total Federal employees are numbered at 2,800,000.
    That is 0.14% of the total work force!!!

    My son and my brother both work for the federal government and both are still working. Son works for the DOD and my brother works for the Department of Reclamation.
    Their departments are fully staffed, except the people that had to use vacation time or lose it. They get a lot of vacation time and can't carry it over to a new year.

    A lot of departments had their budgets approved earlier in the year. Only a few are shut down, or operating at reduced staffing. Of course the MSN isn't going to tell that part of the story. Trump don't sound as bad that way.

    My husbands office has about 30 people out. The rest are working but won't see a pay check until the Gov re-opens.
