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.

Smarty Pants Winners are:
Diane J, Ma Kettle, Diana, Linda

Silly Geese are:
Linda for: "Only the British could come up with such a stodgy word for PARTY!!!"

Diane J. for: "Maffick: A combination of "massive" and "traffic", meaning massive traffic. Usage: Dallas is famous for its maffick jams."

MammyT for: "Diane was close, but the real meaning is this: It's about traffic, all right, but it's the muddy, mucky traffic that comes through the house. Foot traffic.
This word is also used to describe the stuff that is on the bottom of the feet - what get's tracked in. Example: "Harley, take your boots off right there! I won't have that maffick tracked all over this rug."
Quite a challenge this week, Mom.

thanks Mom,
I wanted to comment on your remark about a 45 year old man and a 25 year old woman, but I can't remember what it was like to be a 45 year old man?
That, and the link wouldn't open the comment window.
Have a wonderful weekend.
