Such a terrible waste of good bacon.


Isn't that a crime in France?


I believe it is here.

I see potential there, not bad at all. As a world famous drawing artist, I think that if you work at it you can go far.....

You have a long way to go to reach my abilities, but I was just born gifted to draw, not everyone is.

My rendition of a handsome little birdie...in living color! I think this is a young female Cardinal? She only posed a few seconds, so I couldn't be certain.

Forgot.....My drawing is copyrighted...don't even think about using it without my permission. Who knows...it might end up in a famous European Art Gallery like so many of my other masterpieces?
Drats that it is copyrighted.... Was going to make an 18 x 20.

Gotta be...it's one of the few things where I am first class!

Just opened an Aldis flyer and saw they have boneless skinless chicken thighs for $1.29 a pound...I'm thinking of some teriyaki chicken in a slow cooker? How does that sound to you guys? I could bacon wrap them too?

Yep, I think I'll go down there, it's been two days since I was in there...and that's too long!

Hey folks, this is on the back of their ad and is no hype and no joke..as a grocery buying expert, I can certify it as the honest truth!

Most all of their own brands are better. My girls prefer the Aldis chocolate/peanut butter cups over Reeses and they are half the price!

Aha. So is College 4 years - 9th to 12th grades? We have 13 years, with years 1 to 6 being Primary, years 7 and 8 being Intermediate and years 9 to 13 being College. Many kids leave after year 12, year 13 is optional.

That's a busy schedule! Then comes the weddings, college tuition...all the fun parts!

We only have one grandson left to graduate...he goes into the 8th grade this year. He may not make it......he has been suspended three times this past year. He is named after me, and his genetic code is definitely "Rupert Type".

He even looks the part....

Do you have boys? Girls? ...a mix? That would be a lot of work with them all so close together!

When you are a senior (12th grade) and wear a letter jacket (signifying you excel in some sport)....
So, what do the letters signify? What letter is for what sport?

No, we call that High School. What you call university is what we call college.

The letter is just first letter of the school's name.

Aha! Thanks for explaining. I call College "High School" too, (and get funny looks locally) because that's what we called it in South Africa. But there to, what you call College was "University". College, there, signified non-degree courses, such as a Teachers College.
