1-11-11...how cool is that?

Odd numbers aren't usually my thing.


Opposites attract, right?

So I usually like even things.

I am a Libra...


Ruled by the planet Venus.

I forgot my point here.

Anyway, I wanted to apologize if you wandered over to visit and all ya got was some old news...sorry if that happened to you...it was an early morning.

I had to be out of the house by 6:30am.

I had a tough choice to make...create a literary masterpiece or shi* shower and shave.

As you saw/see....my vanity won out.

Yesterday, I got four new loveables.

One chickie baby and three bad azz boys.

Chickie informed me almost immediately after meeting her that "I don't do dishes"...hmmm, I guess she's on dish duty first thing today...

One of the bad azz boys has already walked the halls of our thug-school.

He went away for an attitude tune-up and now he's back.

New and improved.

We'll see.

The other new loveable wore glasses and a mop of brown hair (Justin Badazz Beeber style) that just didn't quit.

It covered his face tight, like a mold of hot fudge.

I soooo had a couple of fantasy daydreams when I looked at him...each and every one involved a pair of haircutting shears.

Third badazz boy and I washed dishes.

A very nice, mannerly kid.

After a bit of small talk, mostly from me..I asked the Big One...

"So what brings you to this place..? What did you do to get placed on probation?"

"I stole a car"...he answered.

"Hmmm" I said " was it your mom's car? Or a stranger's?"

I think that makes a difference.

Kids sometimes take a parent's car...without permission, parents call the law and in a moment of anger, press charges,...usually not a horrible situation.

"A stranger's car" he answered " I don't know who's car it was."

"Do you have a substance abuse problem?" I asked.

"Like weed...?" he asked.

"Sure, weed, pills, booze... do you indulge"?

Of course he did/does..what else would make you so freakin dumb that you would steal some one's car...?

"Did you make your mother sad...?" I asked him.

"Yeah" he answered, lowering his head.

This one is gonna be easy.

Make it a great (odddddd numbered) day....


Come tomorrow back...


  1. One of my "loveables" stole a firetruck. In a town of 250 people. He didn't think anyone would notice....he just wanted to go for a little ride.

    There were lots of issues - substance and others - with him, but he was one of my favorites.

  2. Hey thanks for the comment..we loveable lovers need to stick together.

  3. Dear PPB: Love that you can relate with your lovables so easily. Love that you are there for those oh so valuable lovables and love that you take the time to know each of them and quickly learn what they most need from you !!!!!Most of all I love you and love the work that you do!!!! MOM


Some bloggers write "gimme me some love".... as far as I'm concerned, I'd love some love, but I'd even take some hate, some expressions of your disgust, your outrage, mild irritation, sheer joy...whatever, I can take it, honestly I can. Just please (please) leave a comment or two and let me know what you think. Merci.
