I wish I was twelve

I remember that summer...
Listening to CFUN (Ballroom Blitz and Smokin in the Boys Room) and playing rummy at the kitchen table with my friend, Tina during the day.
Staying up to watch the KVOS-TV "Late" movies at at night. I saw all the old Elvis (ClamBake), John Wayne (Two Mules for Sister Sarah) and Clint Eastwood (The Good, The Bad and the Ugly) movies that summer.

The golden days.

I have a feeling Max is going to have rose coloured memories regarding this season of his life. He's had two friends over all afternoon/evening. Instead of playing interactive games, they each are playing with their own game boys while watching old Batman movies on TV.

Summers are more work when you're 45.
The yard, the garage, the laundry, the stomach, the dishes, the meals, the work that never got finished at the office, the list of 101 things to never ends.

On a less whiney note, I came across this list a few minutes ago. Max asked me to take my laughter elsewhere, it was interupting his enjoyment of the movie.

I've always been fascinated by groups of five people who try to guess what 100 randomly selected people have said for a chance to win $10,000, which they'll split between themselves before splitting it again with the government.
Which will leave each of them with about $32.87 for their troubles.

I've also been fascinated by how one of those five people will crack under the pressure and cost everyone else on their team a chance to walk away with $32.87.

As a result, I've polled 100 people to find the best "worst" answers ever given on Family Feud.

The top 27 answers are on the board.

Three things I'm thankful for:
1. Wireless internet and my laptop. I was blog-surfing on my back patio. Where there was a breeze. Oh my goodness it's been hot. It was 32 degrees when I got home from work at 6:00 pm (That would be about 128 degrees fahrenheit for any American readers.)

2. My kids have awesome friends. I have a feeling most of them are coming to Creation with me. How lucky am I? Very.

3. The extra fan I confiscated from Clint's room. Now I have a stereo-style wind storm in my room.
