A Toy Of My Own


Yep.  Got a toy today.  And, it really works.  It says so on the package.  Barnes and Noble wouldn't lie.

The grandchildren are out of school Monday and you know who is taking care of them.  We are going to build this toy of mine, then, I am going to terrorize them.  Just kidding, but I bet I do get a few bald faced lies out of them.

Would love to try it on my husband, but he knows better.

    1. Yes, Child. I just have to figure out how to ask questions with a yes or no answer, like, did you wipe that booger on my living room wall? I think I already know who did it Oliver.

  3. Yes Donna - the grandchildren will love it and will no doubt think up some whopping lies to test it out.

    1. I couldn't hear anything worse than when they told me I look older than Poppa T, who is 4 years older than I am and lots of wrinkles which I have none. His hair is still dark and mine is very light so I am hoping that is why they think that. I was crushed.

    2. Typically insensitive children. Still, it could have been worse.

    1. Me? In my adult life I've been perfect; nothing to hide. Now, when I was a child, well... I named my design business, Wild Child Designs.

  8. Now this looks like fun ! can you post on the results ?

    I do not think the school children should be let out on this day.
    Martin Luther King worked for the betterment of people, to me that means stay in school.
    Make it a workday to clean up their school, plant trees and plants, a garden, paint benches.
    Teach the little kids their numbers or letters. Have an art day, play games, sing songs have the band march around.
    Anything to help the children to stay in school and like going there.
    I think Martin Luther King would approve.

    But really what the hell do I know.
    cheers, parsnip

    1. They like science and they have more fun at the farm hammering nails etc. than anything else. Well, maybe not as much fun as riding the ATV's and fishing, but hammering and tearing up things are right up there.

  12. Donna, when I saw the photograph and began reading the post, I thought you might be tossing us a soft ball, in preparation for the upcoming inauguration. xo

    1. The liar in chief lies so openly, I don't believe a thing that comes out of his mouth. I am afraid my little machine would explode. And that is the very, very truthful truth.

    1. Well, I have the littles here today and no 9V battery and no double-sided tape. Wouldn't you know. It would be fun for parties, or maybe it wouldn't on second thought.
