What, we have a resident Cellar spanking expert? If I'd only known ...

Sorry, spanking's done. Nothing to see here ... :cool:

"Expert" gets a bum rap... "Enthusiast" hits the sweet spot nicely.

I've become a skinny old man that has started feeling the cold damp winters of PDX.
Sure, I've worn polyester long johns (the bottoms) while fishing,
but last winter I actually started wearing them daily, even around the house.

Yesterday, I went to buy two new pairs.
But when I got home I realized I had one bottom and one top.

So today, I tried on the full uniform.
It's amazing how much warmer and am happier I am now.

Those old timer country folk with their red John L Sullivan
union suits really did know how to stay warm.

Bum rap?

Did you really type that? Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?

Call the next witness!

Uncle! Uncle! :notworthy

Don't tell me .... "Expert" and "Enthusiast" are types of paddle?

My town used to be, like, the underwear capital of the universe or something. Seriously. It's true.

I used to have heather gray long johns complete with trap door. I loved those.

I love to break out the union suit. I have a wool blend one that is fantastically warm and it makes me look like a real hillbilly! Maybe its time to start embarrassing my women by wearing it around.

I have lost my underwear
I don't care
I'll go bare!

Bye bye longjohns

They were very good to me
Tickle me
Hee hee hee

Bye bye longjohns.

Trap door always following behind me
Follow it and you will always find me

I have lost my underwear
I don't care
I'll go bare!

Longjohns, bye bye

(To the tune of bye bye blackbird)

Griff, my 8 yr-old G-daughter is totally embarrassed by mine !

IM, you bring a smile.
You seem to be feeling better this morning. This too makes me happy.

Thanks Lamp. :)

My friend in Jr Hi taught me that song and I don't know where it came from but I rarely forget things I've memorized and they pop back up when needed.

I still have a good amount of pain but it is better. Funny thing is, now my knees are killing me. I think I overdid it on Thanksgiving. But I am doing well.

I want to post a story of how dumb i was the other night and how virtually unfazed I was by the inconvenience to myself. My back is hurting right now so it will have to wait until another time but suffice to say it involved running out of gas.

The thing is, I don't know why I didn't blow a gasket, so to speak. I don't know if this pain and decreased mobility has really put things into perspective about choosing battles, or if the meds just mellow me out so much I don't care. ;) They sure don't seem to do much for the pain. But I start physical therapy Monday and I think that will be very telling in my diagnosis/treatment.

My phonics group responded really well today.

It's supposed to be two groups of nine, but for the last two days we've had to do without Mrs Ink for school reasons.

I was originally worried about having my own group, as the last group I managed was five, and were at the very lowest level in Reception. Now I have nineteen smart children.

These kinder are learning grammar rules I never knew.
I learned to understand them by sight and practice - no-one ever explained them.
And English being the mongrel language it is, I still don't know which approach is the best - just that I am now teaching rules and learning at the same time!

No surprise that the top group is stuffed with personalities.
None of them are "trouble" but some of them need to be sat on pretty hard in order not to distrupt the lesson. Managed it yesterday and today. I'm NOT a shouter (except just then :)) and I do give warnings. But I have found I am a disciplinarian. At this age (5-7, yes we have a high-flying 5yo in the group) I find silence and an an incredulous look work well enough. Again a shake of the head works wonders.

Sadly I find I am a little sarcastic. Which isn't quite right. But some of the more bombastic children do respond to it *. I'd never say anything to upset a child - talk about a barrier to learning. But I'm pleased that I haven't had to. Discipline is good in the school and they are used to it.

* "Mrs O, some of the chairs haven't been pushed back under the tables" in the room we were working in.
Me - "Look at my face. Do I look worried about that? No. This is phonics, not furniture class."

Apols to Catherine Tate there, They're too young to get the reference.

But I did walk away feeling I had imparted knowledge regarding -er suffixes.
And R got five house points for sticking to the bargain we made, when I assured him he was amazing and brilliant (he is heads above the rest, it's true) and the only thing he needed to work on was his behaviour. It may not work again. But it did today and we split the group again tomorrow.

Phew.

Thought that was a step too far for an LSA ;)

My mom was talking flowers. I said "Cyclamen? Isn't that the new five day treatment for Clematis?"

I'll be here all week. Try the Dandelion Wine.

I rode a cyclamen once, but I fell off. After that, I rhododendron.
