Thank You Very Much!

Ahoy mateys!  It's time for my beloved free therapy in which I pay tribute to all those things I'm most thankful for this week.

Join Kmama for more!

The Daily Dribbles

To my dear Mr. Daddy who has nearly collapsed with hysterical laughter at any mention of my near-death-by-scared-horse story – I appreciate the concern, Thank You Very Much.

For the record, if you are too skeered to put your own cute behind in the saddle, you are not allowed to mock my adventures or my tack, Thank You Very Much.


To the freezing weather that has not resulted in any snow, Thank You Very Much.

It breaks some kind of natural law to have it be in the 20’s without any fun to show for it, Thank You Very Much.

Mr. Gore… I appreciate all your contributions to the global scientific community, Thank You Very Much.

(Yes, I am insanely jealous of all the snow y’all are getting… send some our way, k?)


To the child who is absolutely obsessed with the “EXCAVATOR CLIMBING THE TOWER!” video – thus hijacking my computer for repeated viewings several times daily, Thank You Very Much.

And it really does merit the all caps designation… cuz this EXCAVATOR CLIMBING THE TOWER is pretty darn amazing.

See, don’t say I never gave ya anything, Thank You Very Much :)

I will gladly send some your way. I am on the phone with mother nature now, I hope she picks up!! and I was cracking up at Ahoy Mateys... do you know what that reminds me of??? ;)

My hubby used to make fun of me for horse related injuries, and I told him the same thing. He's too afraid to go near them, so he has no say! ;)
I will HAPPILY send you some of the snow we got this week.

Brandi said...

I watched the video and I will not be showing my boys because they would surely want to watch it 100 times. Thank you very much. ;) All I could think of is WHY isn't that man wearing a safety helmet or something??!

I'm with you on the snow... sort of. It's in the 50's, which is completely unacceptable for me. I'm FREEZING!!! At least if we got some snow, the cold would be worth it.

Kmama said...

I'll have to watch the video later. I just cleared my work computer of a virus and I don't think it would look too good if I picked up another. LOL

Mr. Daddy LAUGHED at you??? For shame!!

We finally got some snow and went sledding. It was so much fun. But I hurt today. LOL

Thanks for linking up!

Mr. and Mrs. Nurse Boy said...

Please don't think we are stalking you. We're not, but we will be on your blog all afternoon. Yep, my 2 boys caught a glimpse. You owe me big! ;0)

By the way... I forgot to fill you in from last Friday's post. Jewel and I both watch Project Runway and she was talking about the man who was kicked off. He name is Jesus-- pronounce Hey-sues. Your comment about Jesus in a red dress had Nurse Boy and I cracking up all day on Saturday!

Boys and heavy equipment...

We're actually supposed to get snow wayyy down here this weekend. I'm game as long as school doesn't get cancelled. :)

renee said...

renee said...

oh, and mr. daddy...shame on you for laughing!

Anything Fits A Naked Man said...

C'mon up to Pennsylvania, we have plenty of snow to spare! You're welcome any time!! And it's absolutely GORGEOUS! Ironically, I wrote about it in MY blog today!!

Shame on daddy for laughing!!

He & Me + 3 said...

what a cool video. We just got snow...I was so happy. We haven't really had any this winter at it was nice. HOpe you get some soon.

Foursons said...

What?! Mr. Daddy was not sympathetic? What the heck is wrong with him? Is he sick?

Josh got snow at college today. It's the first time he's ever seen it. They had a campus wide snowball fight. How awesome is that? Sounds like tons of fun to me!

HeatherOz said...

I am dreaming of snow too but there is absolutely no chance of that here! It is going to be near 80degrees this weekend!

Shanda said...

You are welcome to the snow! Although I have to admit that it is amazingly nice to have a "real winter" for a change and not just a rainy season. We've had a blast in the snow - hope some will come your way soon!

robin said...

I know, I want some of that snow too! And I try to hide any youtube videos on our computer or my preschooler wants to do the same thing...watching tractors or four-wheelers over and over!

Pam said...

How could you not have gotten snow...its everywhere!??? Even Fla. is getting it today.....hope you get some soon.
