Sister,


You're Silly!! Granny's is good!!


********************************************



Ruby June is my baby sister.
When I was 3, I learned that I was gettin' a new baby. I had HER name all picked out, Missy.....and if there were 2 SISTERS, Missy and Missy....I was 3!
I was so ready for HER!
That fateful day came, Mom and Daddy were going to get my new Baby SISTER!!!
Daddy came home to tell me the good news...."You have a new baby brother."
What??
"I don't want HIM. Send IT back!"
I had seen my mother return unwanted things all the time. I knew if I stomped my foot and pouted my Daddy would send HIM back becuz that is what Daddy's do!!
That was when I learned about the conveyor belt in heaven operated by Angels. You know the one.....It sends baby's to good people and what ever drops off the end is the baby you have to take home.
Rats!
I couldn't argue with the Angels in Heaven!

So when I was 7 and I learned that I was going to get a new baby, I took my plea to a higher power...."God, I want a baby sister. You fix it right now. Don't let another boy drop off that conveyor belt. You are God and you can do it!"

And I got Ruby June!


When the perfume counter at Dilliard's wasn't enough to do, she took a part time job with a cell phone company that turned into a full time job that she liked better.


Yeah!!! I know......Better than Dilliard's?????!!!!!

She has all the neatest toys for her cell phones. Apparently, all the kids in her family have one too. I called her one day and her baby boy answered the phone.....I was shocked! He is 4 and is the cutest kid ever....he announces that his mom is not at home....why isn't her phone with her?? He didn't know!!
She will fix my ringer problem....ASAP!!!


Ruby June and I are total opposites:

She is a brunette....she has to color her hair to be what my natural color is....Blonde! When a movie is made of my wonderfully dramatic life......Reese Witherspoon GETS to be Ruby June. And Renee Zelleweger GETS to be me.

She tans....I freckle.
She is the pretty one....I am the smart one.....go figure!!!
She is a Republican....I am a Democrat.
She is Baptist and sometimes her door swings Catholic.....I'm a rock solid member of the Hedonistic Church.
She is country.....I am Rock and Roll.

And I would walk on fire for her!! I told my Ex-hubby that he could be replaced, that I only have one sister.....and he was...replaced!


Becuz, That's how I roll!!

That's terrible!! One of our neighbors shot one of the other neighbor's dogs..don't know why, he was a peach..they must have gotten scared for some reason..sucks..I'd do something if I was sure which one did it..but.. what can ya do? I'd hate it if they killed something I raised!! Why kill possums? I know coons destroy a lot of stuff..we get that here..but possums usually don't hurt anything, do they?

Hello Nadine,

When my youngest daughter was born, my oldest one said the same thing - "I want a BROTHER! Send her back!" Must be great minds thinking alike!

I know this isn't about BLONDES but it is even funnier. An oldie but a goodie - somewhere around 30ish or so;)

John was a clerk in a small drugstore but he was not much of a salesman. He could never find the item the customer wanted.

Bob, the owner, had about enough and warned John that the next sale
he missed would be his last.

Just then a man came in coughing and he ask John for their best cough syrup.
Try as he might John could not find the cough syrup.
Remembering Bob's warning he sold the man a box of Laxative and told
him to take it all at once.
The customer did as John said and then walked outside and leaned against
a lamp post.

Bob had seen the whole thing and came over to ask John what had transpired.
"He wanted something for his cough but I couldn't find the cough syrup.
I substituted Laxative and told him to take it all at once" John explained.

"Laxative won't cure a cough!" Bob shouted angrily.
"Sure it will" John said, pointing at the man leaning on the lamp post.
"Just look at him. He's afraid to cough!"

Peace & Blessings.

Hi Nadine: LOL...I got all excited when I saw how many comments I had; then I realized that 8 of them were from you. No problem Hun....I'll fix it so only one of them shows. That's been happening a lot lately.
OMG...that's the cutest one I've ever heard...."the conveyor belt from Heaven and angels drop the babies off"...too cute.
Of course, you know my sis..."Warmenst"...you know, that funny person that we blog with. WELL!! I was 9 when she came along...I had been the youngest for 9 years and all of a sudden they bring this other kid into the house......sheeeeshhh!! I had my nose out of joint for awhile, but then it turned out to be a lot of fun having a baby sister.
Hugs....Diane

Hmmm. . .I sound more like Ruby June than you, but that's OK--I like stopping by here.

I didn't have an opinion on my brother--it seems like he was always just there. Driving me crazy. But there.

Hey, is your e-mail address on here somewhere? I'll go look.

Made me think of my oldest sister. She was the absolute bestest sister. She adored me and I miss her like crazy.
