Hi there People ~~~ I hope all is well in your world.

I am quite happy in mine, especially when the Heater

is on. While some of you are sweltering, some of us

definitely are not.!


I read this in the Shepparton Paper ~~~


There are about 36 million blogs worldwide.


The number of blogs doubles every six months.


More than 75,000 new blogs are created daily.


About 1.2 million posts are made on blogs daily.



If anyone desires a wish to come true they must first capture

a butterfly and whisper that wish to it.

Since a butterfly can make no sound, the butterfly can not

reveal the wish to anyone but the Great Spirit who hears and sees all.

In gratitude for giving the beautiful butterfly its freedom,

the Great Spirit always grants the wish.

So, according to legend, by making a wish and giving the butterfly

its freedom, the wish will be taken to the heavens and be granted.


Kid’s views on their Mothers. ~~~~~~

Why did God make mothers?

1. She’s the only one who knows where the scotch tape is.

2. Mostly to clean the house.

3. To help us out of there when we were getting born.


How did God make mothers?

1. He used dirt, just like for the rest of us.

2. Magic plus super powers and a lot of stirring.

3.God made my Mum just the same like he made me. He just

used bigger parts.


What ingredients are mothers made of?

1. God made mothers out of clouds and angel hair and everything

nice in the world and a little dab of mean.

2. They had to get their start from men’s bones. Then they

mostly used string, I think.


Why did God give you your mother and not some other mom?

1.We are related.

2. God knew she likes me a lot better than other people’s mums

like me.


What kind of little girl was your mom?

1. My mum has always been my mum and none of that other stuff.

2. I don’t know because I wasn’t there, but my guess would be

pretty bossy.

3. They say she used to be nice.


Who’s the boss at your house?

1. Mum doesn’t want to be, but she has to be because Dad is such

a goofball.

2.Mum. You can tell by room inspection. She sees things under the bed.

3. I guess Mum is, but only because she has a lot more to do than Dad.


What do Mums do in her spare time?

1. Mothers do not do spare time.

2. To hear her tell it, she pays bills all day.


What would it take to make your Mum perfect?

1. On the inside she is already perfect. Outside, I think some kind

of plastic surgery.

2. Diet. You know, her hair. I’d diet maybe blue.

Out of the mouths of babes, those were funny.

I hope you stay warm, I'd be happy to send you some of our heat. Take care and have a good day!

The truth according to kids is so refreshing - and pretty funny as well. ec

Hi Merle,

I love it, that does really sound like what kids say.

Who’s the boss at your house?

1. Mum doesn’t want to be, but she has to be because Dad is such

a goofball.

Gee that sounds like my family.

Merle...I don't know how I missed this post of yours with the Butterfly Legend. If you don't mind, I'll take it back to America and use it with the next sighting of a all my readers can read it too. Of course I'll tell them where I got the story from.
