I saw this on Facebook and really liked it:

I didn’t forget the November searches but they were so dull, most weren’t worth sharing.  Here are the two funniest:

  • ostrich taxes for fat people
  • sweaty armpits of south indian cows

I woke up to an email from my beloved younger son:

I’ve not been the starring role in any posts recently and this needs to be rectified.  Yours impolitely, Favourite Son.

What do you think?  Should I write about Spud?

    Creative! Here’s another fun concept (imagine if we were forced to “gym” to cover our personal electricity consumption – candle sales would go through the roof)

    PS – since publishing your SEP on my blog I’ve had this find me – “kerala girls armpit photos” – scary!!

    Tell Spud he needs to do something worth writing about first 😉

    love love love, of course you must write of Spud, we never want to offend the children…for they decide who changes our nappies when we are old , decrepit and drooling again ….(remember like we were as infants) LOL

    Yes, write about Spud. The poor child feels neglected because he has not been abused recently and needs to be made sport of. Think of how you’d feel if your mum wrote a blog and didn’t make fun of you. Make the poor child happy and berated him and abused him in a blog or two.

    Wow… he reads your blog? I have two sons and two daughter-in-laws and I’m quite sure that only one daughter-in-law is a reader. The sons fake it. 🙂

    The person or persons who cam up with the musical stair idea is or are geniuses. So Santa traded in his his magic snowball for a twitter account, how sad and so 21st century. Yes Spud must be written about,, it’s your motherly duty. 🙂

    It had to be a Swedes that came up with the stair piano. Thanks for sharing … never heard about, but how wonderful … I would take the stairs too .. even with my 50 kilo of luggage. *smile How said we Swedes are boring … at least not all of us. Yes, write about Spud … he need some attention.

    oh yes he’s always good for a laugh!

    Lots of love to those innovative Swedes. I’m a stair user simply because it’s faster to use stairs than it is to use escalators. I loved the stair piano and I know if I had access to one I’d playing and arriving late, rather than getting to where I was going on time.

    sweaty armpits of northern indian reindeer – maybe
    but sweaty armpits of south indian cows! nooooooooooooooooo

    Always love seeing the piano stairs video….and the last cartoon was quite funny I thought.


  13. Rorybore December 9, 2012 at 19:15 #

    perhaps if Spud did a jiffy number on the piano stairs?


  14. Katharine Trauger December 10, 2012 at 01:03 #

    Only if you can get a laugh at his expense. 😉


  15. judithatwood December 10, 2012 at 01:18 #

    Sure! I’d love to read more about Spud! Does Spud have a name?


  16. Three Well Beings December 10, 2012 at 06:41 #

    I loved the video of the piano stairs! That would be so fun I’d stay and play on them for sure! And I love stories of families…so bring on more about Spud! He is shy isn’t he! Ha!


  17. benzeknees December 10, 2012 at 17:29 #

    By all means, regale us with stories of Spud!


  18. Grannymar December 10, 2012 at 22:11 #

    You could tell us about a Christmas past that Spud starred in!

    Pretty funny… love them. 😉


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
