After shutting the computer down, I saw this on World News Now. Had to fire Squirt up again just to post this. Himself and I had a pretty good chuckle. Then again, our "gifted" son and his goofy brainiac friends used to come up with ideas like this, so it was a bit of a throw-back for us. Hope you enjoy it too. BTW, the first half-minute is just crowd noise, feel free to skip to about 35 seconds when things start to move:



And now I can go to bed. Good-night!

Pac's baby chicks reminded me of these guys.

I never get tired of this and neither do they!

CG, those boys were really quite good (and funny).

Aunt Bea, that was cute.

That video will remain in my 'to keep' file---- it's so refreshing to see a video that shows that kids can really be kids, have fun, be focused and with no slightly smutty overtones after reading too many articles about the opposite!

Thank you for posting that. This is definitely one I'll pass on.

Cute duckies Aunt Bea!

About the synchronized "swimmers": Apparently this has been an oft-used idea for talent shows. When Himself and I watched in on the big TV (read: He was in control of the remote...) we also watched a couple other versions. There were quite a few of them if you want to compare skill sets. Personally, the one I posted was the cutest in our opinions, although the college guys were a whole lot more buff.

Just got off the phone after talking to my son for an hour! What a good kid - his parents must have raised him right. Not sure if I'll hear from our daughter since I just talked to her recently. I'm guessing she's pulled a long shift at Lowe's today - she always offers to swap days with any of the Moms who might have been scheduled for this day, so that they can spend time with the family. Raised that one right for sure too.

Sounds like you got some awesome kids there CG. Happy Mother's Day.

I got "Mother's Day" wishes from my two furbabies in the form of kisses from Violet and lap cuddles from Monkey. Big smiles!

We think they turned out pretty much OK LP. As it turned out, Loverly called late tonight. Yup, she closed. Fortunately she didn't have to be in early on Monday, so we talked. And talked. Then talked some more.
