    A silly story that I wrote and Mom insisted that I post
    Once upon a time there was a child called Bad Little Boy, His Mom and Dad told him to be good but he was bad anyways. One day his Mom and Dad said "Lets go out to dinner and leave our Bad Little Boy in the capable care of his Very Irritable Big Sister, his Not Very Irritable Big Sister, and his Very Patient Big Brother." So they called the big siblings before them and said "We are going out to dinner and you are going to watch your Bad Little Brother and make sure that he doesn't get into trouble." But once his Mom and Dad had left get into trouble is just what he did! he smashed a lamp with his favorite picture frame, he threw Not So Irritable Big Sister's pillows and blankets out the window, he jumped up and down in his muddy rain boots on Very Patient Big brother's bed,and he made a scarecrow out of Very Irritable Big sister's brand new ball dress, and expensive fancy shoes! "That is IT!!!!!!" Very Irritable Big Sister cried and with that she snagged him by his shirt and tied him to a chair. Bad Little Boy was very nervous to say the least and as the big Sib's argued over what to do with him he thought over what he had done.
    Then Very Irritable Big Sister untied him and marched him into the attic and locked it behind him.
    A few hours later Mom and Dad got home and noticed the nice and quiet state of things and immediately demanded to know what they had done with Bad Little Boy. Quite calmly Very Irritable Big Sister explained that he had been bad so they put him in a sort of time out.
    When Mom and Dad saw Bad Little Boy they decided to lock him down in the basement for the rest of his bad little life and then they fed him leftover coffee and moldy buiscuts and lived happily ever after without him.

    Happy birthday Abigail!
    Today is the 13th birthday of my friend and Aunt Abigail.
    and as is the custom I am going to post 13 things about her:

    1. she was my very first friend and we were like sisters (and still are;).
    2. she is a black belt in tae-kwon-do.
    3. she learned to read when she was 3.
    4. she always happily and willingly gives up her lovely, wonderful bedroom when we come to visit.
    5. she showed me the way to make perfect scrambled eggs.
    6. we used to eat the green and white strawberries in Grandma's garden just because she cautioned us not to (we figured that she must be keeping the best ones for herself).
    7. she loves, loves ,loves her nephews Byson Lee, and Perry IV.
    8. she helped me figure out a particularly hard jump in the playstation game: ATV Offroad Fury.
    9. we both loved good old Sambo, Grandpa and Grandma's big black dog enough to give him our ice cream 0:) (and then claim that he took it>:)
    10. she has her own PSP (play station personal).
    11. she has her own RAZR.
    12. she has her own computer.
    13. once when she was a baby Grandma drank a coke (this was a big deal because Grandma had competely vetoed coffee while she was pregnant) and when Dad went over to visit, poor li'l Abber was in her carseat with her eyes WIDE open, with a grin on her face,and her eyes going from side to side.

    Who likes Shakespeare?
    We are getting ready to do a play of selected scenes from William Shakespeare's "Much ado about nothing". One scene which is definitely going to be included is a battle of wits between Beatrice (quoted in the voice of Emma Thompson) and Benedick (quoted in the voice of Kenneth Branaugh):

    Bene: ....If Signor Leonato be her father, she would not have his head on her shoulders for all Messina, as like him as she is.
    Beat: I wonder that you will still be talking Signor Benedick: Nobody marks you.
    Bene: What! My dear lady Disdain, Are you yet living?
    Beat: I it possible disdain should die while she has such meet food to feed it as Signor Benedick? Courtesy itself must convert to disdain if you come in her presence.
    Bene: Then is courtesy a turncoat. But it is certain I am loved of all ladies, only you excepted; and I would I could find in my heart that I had not a hard heart; for truly, I love none.
    Beat: A dear happiness to women: else they had been troubled with a pernicious suitor. I thank God and my cold blood, I am of your humor for that : I had rather hear my dog bark at a crow than a man swear he loves me.
    Bene: God keep your ladyship still in that mind; so some gentleman or other shall 'scape a predestinate scratched face.
    Beat: Scratching could not make it worse, an 'twere such a face as yours were.
    Bene: Well, you are a rare parrot-teacher.
    Beat: A bird of my tongue is better than a beast of yours.
    Bene: I would my hose had the speed of your tongue, and so good a continuer. But keep your way, I have done.
    Beat: you always end with a jade's trick : I know you of old.

    Isn't it great? Kaitlyn and I always quote it.
