Yesterday I was driving and listening to the radio when I heard a news story that I just couldn’t believe. It happened in Kentucky, not too far from where I live. A man slipped into a supermarket and hid until it closed. Then he gave himself a party, and what a party it was.
* He cooked and ate 6 steaks, shrimp and birthday cake.(After all that I wonder if he needed some Tums, too?)
* He also drank a bunch of beer and smoked cigarettes.
* There were 57 empty whipped cream cans in the garbage.
* Then he crawled up in the ceiling rafters and went to sleep and that’s where the police found them.
His whole one man party was caught on the store’s surveillance tape. Since he was alone there is no way he can claim he did it due to peer pressure. Maybe he could say temporary insanity….
I’m willing to bet he was the type of child who could easily entertain himself. Ya think?

What is it about babies that makes us want to do weird things to their hair?
Maybe it’s because they are adorable no matter what their hair looks like?
When you are a baby you really can’t have a bad hair day….because you are just too stinking cute!
I have often said that Erma Bombeck was my second mother, even though she and I never met. I say that because my mom loved her and often quoted her or shared something with me that Erma had written. Most everything Erma wrote was funny but the few things she shared that were serious have such wisdom in them that you know she was speaking from the heart.
If you are familiar at all with her writings you will recognize what I am about to share. I think it’s very appropriate for Mother’s Day. If you are a mom and perchance you haven’t read this before after you read it take a few moments to think about what she says. It’s some of the best advice this mom of 5 ever received!
IF I HAD MY LIFE TO LIVE OVER
I would have invited friends over to dinner even if the carpet was stained and the sofa faded.
I would have eaten the popcorn in the “good” living room and worried much less about the dirt when someone wanted to light a fire in the fireplace.
I would have taken the time to listen to my grandfather rambling about his youth.
I would never have insisted the car windows be rolled up on a summer day because my hair had just been teased and sprayed.
I would have burned the pink candle sculped like a rose before it melted
I would have sat on the lawn with my children and not worried about grass stains.
I would have cried and laughed less while watching television, and more
while watching life.
I would have gone to bed when I was sick, instead of pretending the earth would go into a holding pattern if I weren’t there for the day.
I would never have bought anything just because it was practical, wouldn’t show soil or was guaranteed to last a lifetime.
Instead of wishing away nine months of pregnancy, I’d have cherished every moment, realising that the wonderment growing inside me was the only chance in life to assist God in a miracle.
When my kids kissed me impetuously, I would never have said, “Later. Now go get washed up for dinner.”
There would have been more “I love you’s” and more “I’m sorry’s”
. . . but mostly, given another shot at life, I would seize every minute . . . look at it and really see it . . . and never give it back.”
