well, I misquoted, it's actually "Praise the Lord and pass the tax rebate" and it's said by Friar Tuck in Disney's animated Robin Hood, which we are watching about twice a day now. :-)

Stephanie is a Silly Goose with:
LOL! I was just thinking that phalos was awfully close to phallic! So, I'm thinking it's being able to point in all directions? Not sure if that is the serious answer or the goofy one, but I'm not going any further on that word!

I must say that competition was very tough this week.
Next week bring all your friends over to play as the more entries the more smiles!
I'm hoping to get Tiny Talk Tuesday, Sarah's Simple Sewing Secrets on Wednesday, Thesaurus Thursday (ON Thursday) and Show and Tell on Friday back up and running next week. So stay tuned. Of course chatter about and pics of my kids will run throughout the week too!
Have no fear Diane, I will be off 3 days one week and 4 days the next, alternating. And will be up all night while the rest of the house sleeps, so I doubt I will be online much less than now. I'll try to keep the blog up at any rate. I am going to be moving the sewing machine out of Sugars' bedroom so that I can sew during the night, this should help me with goal #1.
And again, I shall end with this......I just love it so!
Life is short!
Break the rules!
Love truly, Laugh uncontrollably..
And never regret anything that made you smile
