A GIRL.

So on my way home, I enrolled in karate and a concealed weapons class.

A GIRL.

I was so excited to be able to have a son...teach them to spit sunflower seeds, turn double plays, teach them how to treat a woman....

But you know...now my wife is going to be so spoiled....because I will show our daughter how a woman is to be treated by a man....and while it's won't be a boy....a boy can't be Daddy's little girl.

She is going to have me wrapped around her little finger.....I'm in a lot of trouble...

I've already practiced the conversation for her first date....goes like this....

Boy: I'm here to pick up your daughter.
Me: No you're not. Leave.

Oh me....what am I going to do with a girl.....

We are going to name her after my grandmother....my Dad cried...special moments....

Well, I'm off to clean my gun.

A girl?????? A girl!!!!!!!!! Speaking from experience with my niece's. Yes she will have you wrapped around her finger.


“I pulled the boy close to me and said you see that girl, thats my only lil girl. So if you think about huggin or kissin. Remember these words. I aint afraid to go back to prison”

All kinds of big wigs will be there, including rumors that the CEO of the company will even be there. I know our mayor will be there. Ribbon cutting will be around 8am, depending on how long the speeches will be. Then the fun starts, expecting a lot of people to come through the doors all weekend.
I will be working all day Friday and Saturday, still waiting to hear about Sunday.
I need to work on how to process coupons as there are supposed to be a lot handed out the first few days. I am tired all over again just thinking about all this!
Christmasstar that sounds like a very long day. You should sleep well tonight!

Those were gentle? I was aiming for annoying.

I've had the song "Silver and Gold" stuck in my head today. I normally have a Christmas song 'playing' in my head most days...and its a toss-up as to which song I am thinking about. Sometimes I catch myself humming the tune or even starting to sing it a little. I wonder if anyone actually hears me???

And on that note I wish you all a lovely evening everyone...and leave you with this:

Silver and gold
Silver and gold
Ev'ryone wishes For silver and gold
How do you measure It's worth?
Just by the pleasure it Gives here on Earth
Silver and gold
Silver and gold
Mean so much more When I see
Silver And gold decorations
On ev'ry Christmas tree
I love that song ChristmasHeart!
