How's it going?

I'm eating a ham sandwich that I made. I decided to change things up and put Ranch dressing on it instead of mayo. I did that in honor of my favorite sandwich, the Market Turkey Sandwich, available at Palmer's Deli located in Ankeny, Urbandale, West Des Moines and Des Moines, IA. It wasn't very good. Ranch and ham just don't mix very well. Just a warning for you all.

Somebody mentioned the Suger Creek Gang in one of their comments. It reminded me of simpler times. Times when I was a child that the hustle and bustle of everyday life didn't exist. Nobody was in a hurry. We would play outside in the creek all day long with nothing on but a smile. In the mornings we would meet at the local Diner for breakfast with the townsfolk. Ma would spend all day making supper and churning the butter and Pa would stay out in the field till dusk plowing the field. Those were the days.

I own season's 1-7, and 9 of Little House On The Prairie on DVD. I get chided a lot for it. Not sure why? It's the greatest show ever. {show quote from Season 4, Episode 21, "I'll Be Waving as You Drive By" Pt. 1}
"PA, COME QUICK, I CAN'T SEE! I CAN'T SEE!" (Mary sobbing) (Pa comes and hold's Mary while crying) "I'm here. I'm here. It's okay. It's okay."

Wow, powerful stuff!
Anyway, when we were at Sam's Club a couple weeks ago I found Season 8 and the last season, 10, for $25 each. I haven't gotten them yet, but boy am I excited to get them. I can't watch season 9 yet cause I have to wait till I get season 8 and watch that first.

Where have all the good shows gone? Now we've got shows like "American Idol" and "The Office". Please!

If I were you I would forget those little house DVD's and go for the Chuck Norris DVD's I'm sure they are cheaper and far better entertainment

I was watching an episode last night on tv. Alex was in jail for killing someone. It was pretty intense. I changed the channel.

I'm going to tell you about our trip to Florida when I was a child.

Be sure to click on all the links throughout the story

The situation started with a five passenger car and five people, not a good place to start. The car was a 1988 Dodge Lancer. Yes the car that made the funny noise that sounds like a whistle and a hum at the same time. I have recorded this sound for you and placed it at the link below.

Listen to the Lancer hum

Anyway, those of you know me, know that I was the best brother ever. I never tormented my sisters. I never put mayonnaise in their hair and pushed them down the stairs.

Just a side note from my Florida vaction.
I was over at TJ's house one time on a sunday afternoon. We were eating lunch with his whole family and TJ siad something that his father didn't care for. And TJ got sent to his room and I was sitting there with his family. It was kind of an awkward situation. And Melissa kept taking food off my plate when she thought I wasn't looking.

Picture of Melissa

That is the only picture of Melissa I could come up with. I'm just kidding about her taking food off my plate. I remember the conversation being very lively after TJ was banished. Not really.

One tme I was at Jeremy's house and Jeremy and I were playing checkers on the floor on one of those big checker mats. Jeremy's bird was flying around in the house and it landed on Bill and bit his ear or face or something and Bill reached up and smacked it so hard it went flying onto the floor. Jeremy got so upset at this that he yelled at his dad, started crying and ran to his room. That was another awkward situation, being left alone with Bill and Harriet, I think after Jeremy left we talked about Little House on the Prarie. I think we were like 18 when that happened.
Here is a picture of Jeremy's Grandma

I'll finish my story about Florida latter

I found these hints that your Amish teen might be in trouble:

10. Sometimes stays in bed till after 6 am.

9. In his sock drawer, you find pictures of women without bonnets.

8. Shows up at barn raisings in full "Kiss" makeup.

7. When you criticize him, he yells, "Thou sucketh!"

6. His name is Jebediah, but he goes by "Jeb Daddy."

5. Defiantly says, "If I had a radio, I'd listen to disco!."

4. You come upon his secret stash of colorful socks.

3. Uses slang expression: "Talk to the hand, cause the beard ain't listening."

2. Was recently pulled over for "driving under the influence of cottage cheese."

1. He's wearing his big black hat backwards.
