My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Answers, Winners and Chit Chat

In reverse order.

Well, the question about New Years has been answered.

Subvet stayed up late, made a special trip, drove 70 miles, and arrived home bearing 2 quarts of eggnog AND 2 new books!! Sue Grafton's T is for Trespass and Janet Evanovich's Twelve Sharp

I have THE BEST husband in the world!!

Hooligans are somewhat better...still kinda peekid though.

Overall, I must say it's a good day....and Subvet just made my week! :-)

AND I have 2 NEW COMMENTORS!! I love new commentors! Just makes my heart smile to know another person has drifted through My Wonderful Life, some stay and chat, others drift elsewhere, but I love you all!


So.......who's ready to see the winners for this week??

oops, sorry, more chit chat.

Now I'm not one to get messages from God based on how the curtains are moving with the breeze.

But I have to say that the idea for this silly game must have been given to me straight from on High. I have enjoyed this more than I can put into words. Y'all make me smile every week. I'll go back and reread all your responses throughout the week if I'm feeling blue and you folks just brighten me right up.


So I want to say thank you for blessing me with your silliness and smartiness!

And keep coming back!

OK OK OK, enough sap!

And the winners are....................

Pannier (pah' nee yer)is a Southern term meaning "more filled with pine trees than yours". Example: Mah woods is "pannier" than yers is, Jake.

Spital is drool...

I'm probably a bit warped, but as I've spent over 4 years now covered in drool, I found calling it spital hilarious!





Diane and bumblevee were both right about pannier....

pannier or panier (pan'yer) n 1. a basket, esp a large one, for carrying goods, provisions, etc 2. one of a pair of baskets to be slung across the back of a pack animal. 3. Also called pannier drape on a dress, skirt, etc a puffed arrangement of drapery at the hips 4. an oval framework or a pair of hoops formerly used for distending the skirt of a dress at the hips.

Why on earth would someone want to make their hips look bigger?? Must not be built like ME!

spital 1 a hospital, esp one for lazars 2 a shelter on a highway.

Don't know about you but I had to look up lazars. It refers to folk who have leprosy.

Have a good weekend folks!

I can't believe it! I won. I've long been famous for silliness, but now it's official. A Prize-winning Goof. That's me. Can I have a copy of the button to display? I am so proud. I'd like to thank my sophomore class English teacher, Mrs. Beck; all the little people who made me so crazy: my children, my grandkids, my music students, ...bla bla bla.
Thanks, Mighty Mom.
