Everyone keeps telling me the trick to being a writer is to keep writing. I don’t think they say that to painters. But maybe they do.

I have friends who can’t stop themselves from writing. They don’t understand how I can NOT write. They can tell I’m literate, and I edit their things and help make them better, and I can tell funny story, so they just assume I must be able to write too. But what they don’t know is that almost all the funny stories I tell are just true.

My family is just interesting and funny, and we go interesting places and funny things happen to us. When I’m with them, and someone does something, I say, “you know you’re going to be chapter 57 when I write my book!” We’ve even decided what the title should be. And Then There Was More Food, because there always is. We laugh until we cry, and then we go back for more pie.

How to Clean the House

1. Open a new folder on your PC.

2. Name it "Housework."

3. Send it to the Recycle Bin.

4. Empty the Recycle Bin.

5. Your PC will ask you, "Are you sure you want to delete
Housework permanently?"

6. Calmly answer, "Yes," and press the mouse button firmly.

7. Feel better?

Well, we got up with the sirens about 4am, and it was close enough to be scary, but passed north of us.  We were in the basement anyway.  All of mine are fine, but lord, at the destruction, and those killed.  Too ugly to think about.

My dad (Larry) is on patrol with his state guard unit.  There was a clip of them on MSNBC.  Mother saw it, but I haven't been able to catch it.

I did hear one funny story.  My good friend Lisa (who lives just under 2 miles from Union University) ended up in her 6x6 metal and concrete storm shelter with her hysterical preteen daughter, 3 dogs (one of them husky sized) AND her ex husband, whom one of the dogs hates, AND (wait for it)  HIS current GIRL FRIEND!  I don't know, a few minutes of that crowd, and I'd have been preferring the tornado!

My father-in-law is a really cool old guy.  He tells a great story.  And he's lead a long and interesting life.  He says they're all true, based on a true incident.  He's just the kind of guy that things happen around.  So yesterday I get this email:
I had my hearing checked yesterday and the result was that both ears are wearing out equally but not to the point where a hearing aid would be recommended.
The gal that ran the program asked me what made me think that my hearing was going bad.  I told her that some of my kids and grandkids speak softly and rapidly.  She said to tell them to enunciate and slow down.  Then she added..."if that doesn't take care of the problem ....tell them to shut up,"  There was no mention of buying a hearing aid.
He's just the kind of guy that people feel comfortable saying things like that to.  I hope he tells all the kids  (6kids+spouses, 17 grandchildren, so far)

Just too fun not to pass on.  The site is  -- they're trying to do the whole bible, obscure prophets and all.

The police never think it's as funny as you do.

So, I was just musing about the fact that there's always music in my head, and how I so often hear (and sometimes say aloud -- though I've learned not to do that so much in my adult life) lines from songs. It's comforting sometimes, knowing that what I feel and experience must, in some ways be, if not universal, at least not so strange.

Of course, then there are those times that the one line is all I can remember from the song, and I spend the rest of the day hearing that one line or two, over and over, trying to remember what the rest of the song was, or who sang it.

And then, since it's 4am, and life gets funnier this time of day, and I'm talking about hearing things, I'll repeat what I learned from experience one night in an ER:

If you're ever in a hospital ER because you are depressed, and some nice medpro asks you, "Do you hear voices no one else hears?" the correct answer is NOT, "How would I know whether others hear them or not?" HA Psychpros have NO sense of humor.
