: Hi Adele,
: I think my brother-in-law may take issue with you on this one. My mother-in-law (rest your soul) was a very smart women who unfortunately moved her furniture around about once a week (I wish I just had time to THINK about rearranging furniture). On one of those space-altering occasions, she happened upon some lovely "artwork" on the wall. She called all the children (9 of them) into the living room to see this most beautiful drawing on the wall. She asked "Which of my precious children possesses the fine artistic talent to create such a masterpiece?" My then 5 year-old brother-in-law, Bruce, sheepishly blushing in all his glory, stepped forward and said "It's me Momma, I'm the one with the talent!" She then, of course, proceeded to demonstrate her disciplinary talents. The kids all said they learned a valuable lesson that day about reading between the lines of Momma's questions!
: And I must say that my Jordan has enjoyed the chasing the cat one a little too much! Now we've two cats nobody can put their hands on!
: I loved the list though, thanks,
Glad you liked it - like the brother in law story too! Sounds a bit like my mother!
My personal fave is "Don't pop someone else's bubble" - I would like to think that I help my friends make theirs, not pop them!
