An Ol' Broad's Ramblings

Commencing countdown, engines on…..
Ten, Nine, Eight, Seven, Six, Five, Four, Three, Two, One, Liftoff…..
…but aren’t the small things the ones that help us with the big things? Ok…maybe not in this case. Heh.
Along with many other pictures of family, plus text messages between said family members, and a friend or two. Let’s see… Yep…that’s about it! Now on here…that’s a whole ‘nuther story!
Yes, that is blood in the background. It looks like Granny is having a rough time of it. Wee Spud is cutting four new teeth, all at the same time, for a total of TWELVE! The boy is gonna have more teeth than an alligator! Heh.
See? Teefus! Wouldn’t it be nice if Brat could figure out how to AIM the camera? Yeah…I thought so too!
Well, it’s been a while since I’ve given a Spud update. The lil’ squirt is growing like a weed…naturally. So, on that note….
Ick says he took the picture in mid expression, whatever that means. I think he just looks stoned! Heh! Not that I’d know what that actually looks like!
He usually walks a lot farther…ok, maybe not a lot, but farther than this. SP was too close, Bo was getting in the way, and I didn’t think to grab the video camera until he was starting to wear himself out. But you get the idea. The little germ factory is walking….when he’s not insisting on being picked up. Heh. Noooo….he’s not spoiled rotten. Pfft!
Welp, yesterday was the official Spud’s first birthday…was way too tired to post last night. Ick in law took a bunch of cupcakes to the daycare, so they could ‘celebrate’, but me, being me, I insisted on him having one at home. Thankfully, he was in a good mood when Brat and I went to pick him up. I could have sworn I had a video of him walking back and forth between SP and myself, but apparently, I was hallucinating from all the germs he’s graced me with in recent days…bless his wee heart! Yep, sick as the proverbial dog…again! sigh…
Then GG Bat thought it would be a real good idea to put him in his highchair, and let him have at it! If I could figure out how to cut this sucker down, I would, but alas….
Yes, O’Reilly was on the idjit box.
Clean up was a whole lot of fun! It wouldn’t have been so bad if Brat had stayed put! But nooooo….she had to leave for a few, and once he realized she was gone, icing all over the back of the chair. Luckily, Bo helped with the cleanup! Although, I gotta tell ya, getting icing off material is no fun at all, but I THINK I got it all.
There should be some interesting incidents on Saturday when the actually party will be, with lots of grown ups and teenagers. Brat says she’s going to strip him nekkid, sit him outside, and let him have at it! Then hose him down! Should have done that last night, but it was a little bit nippy. Heh.
Yep! The Spudmeister has hit a milestone! A whopping one year old! We’re having his party on Saturday, so there will be major cake eating! But Brat had to have a bit of cake for him on his b-day, right? Nope. She gave him a wee bit on the 11th. She an odd one, but that’s ok. I haven’t killed her in 38 years, so why do it now. I think it would be in my best interest if I went to the store, and found the messiest cupcake I can find and let him have at it! Heh. Or not.
Yep….got most of the morning to myself, so I managed to post a few things. While waiting for Brat to bring the Spudmeister home, I thought I’d get caught up on my GG Bat Spud postings. Just cuz, well, there will be more in the not too distant future, and I didn’t want to get ‘em all confused and such. Heh. Well, I didn’t want ME to get confused. sigh…
Yep! Even though there were a few folks on the highway that did their best to keep me from my destination, I defied them all! There was a truck towing a trailer that apparently thought I was invisible, and attempted to go through me….twice! Jack wagon!! And why is it I get stuck behind some yahoo in the passing lane that can’t figure out what that peddle on the right is for? If the speed limit is 75, why do ya wanna go 60??? Then there was that truck from hell that I couldn’t see around, on a two lane highway! I finally passed it, doing 90, so I wouldn’t get creamed by the line of cars coming at me in the other lane. SHEESH! There were a LOT of idjits on the road today!
Spud was pretty grouchy when I got here, but that’s ok. He’s was pretty grumpy till he finally went to bed. I’m rather hoping he’ll get use to me, but alas…. I fear until he sees me on a regular basis, this will be his reaction when Granny leaves the room. Oh well!
I’ve been screeched at, slobbered on by one of the dogs, “claimed” by two, kneaded by one of the cats, and groped by my 14 year old granddaughter. This is going to be an interesting visit! Heh.
Once again, I can’t type while I drive! So….I won’t! Heading down to Texas for Spud’s first birthday!
Needless to say, there won’t be a lot of posting while I’m down there….or maybe there will? All depends! I’ve no doubt, the world will keep spinning, the government will keep spending, and Obama will continue to embarrass us, without any comment from me.
Of course there will be pictures! I have some that I MIGHT post tonight when I stop for the evening. All depends on how much I hurt, how many pain killers I have to take, and whether or not I’m in the mood to post ANYTHING!
I have made mention of Publius Huldah quite often, and linked to many of her papers that pertain the the Constitution. She, I guess you’d call it, testified in front of the Tennessee Senate. The woman is a genius when it comes that important document, and the Federalist Papers. Sadly, many of our elected officials are not as familiar with the Founders and their views as they should be.
It’s unfortunate that they only gave the speakers five minutes each. I’m sure the Senators could have learned quite a bit if they had allowed P/H more time. If you ever had the opportunity to hear her actually give a speech, take it. She is a dear friend, and never ceases to amaze!
If I hadn’t had to go to the doc…again…I would have been in Nashville to watch P/H take the Senators to the wood shed. Heh!!
If you can tolerate the nonsense, have at it! P/H starts about the 1:03 mark. There are questions and answers, which aren’t not included in the video above, and Kelsey is looking like an horse’s ass.
The whole session:
I really wish I could figure out how to turn this sucker right side up. But hey…it cracked me up, so I had to share!
We had a bit of face to face time yesterday…and he took FOUR STEPS!! THREE TIMES! I was so excited!! I got to see his first steps! Is that cool or what!!!
Yeah…he can take it apart…but can he put it back together?? Hmmm….
I’m SO excited! I’ll be heading to Putnam County, on the other side of Nashville, to attend an event with some like minded folks. It’s been so long since I’ve seen P/H (REAL Constitutional scholar, Publius Huldah), and she is going to be the featured speaker! WHOO HOO! We don’t hold the fact that’s she’s a lawyer too against her. I’ll also get to see a few other folks I haven’t seen in…. like….forever, meet a few I’ve talked to, but never met, and then, there’s Paula too! Heh. Just kiddin’! Honest!!
From the FB page:
2nd Amendment Forum on Gun Rights will include speakers Publius Huldah, Constitutional attorney; Rep Joe Carr who will discuss his new bill HB 0042; John Harris, Exec Director of TN Firearms Association, and Sheriff David Andrews, President TN Sheriffs Assn, who will be talking about the enforcement of any attempts at bans or confiscation by federal agents.
This is a hugely important topic that all TN citizens should take part in, since we are seeing this federal administration “taking aim” on gun ownership. This is not a partisan issue, this is an AMERICAN issue and I encourage ALL citizens to come whether you are Democrat, Republican or Independent.
Yep! I’m gonna be there!
Yeah, I know. Y’all don’t care that my great grandson is growing like a weed, and don’t wanna be subjected to these infrequent updates. Tough! I’m a great granny, and that’s what we do. Annoy people with pictures of our offspring’s offspring’s offspring! Deal with it!
This kind of creeped me out! The boy looks like one of those kids from the Village of the Damned!
I got to see him ‘face to face’ via some app the Brat made me download, since she no longer has her iPhone. Gotta tell ya, for the most part, it works better than FaceTime. It’s called…. Tango? Anyway, it works great as long as Spud doesn’t get near the phone itself, and decides he must poke at things, and ‘end call’. sigh…
So, during this chat, I was able to get a few shots of the young’un. He was a wee bit grumpy, until Brat fed his face. The boy LOVES food! Feed his face, and he’s a happy camper!! With one exception…..pears. Interesting. I don’t like pears. Brat doesn’t like pears. Jr doesn’t like pears. Hmmm… We decided it’s not the taste, it’s the texture.
The boy is bald as a cue ball! Ok, not exactly true. He has the Friar tuck fringe around the back, and one rather long strand at the crown. That’s ok. I was bald for quite a while. Brat was bald, after she lost her platinum fuzz she had at birth. Jr was bald. He’ll be blonde/red for a while, then, it’ll get darker. Watch and see! sigh….
There is one thing he did NOT get from me! Nope! That’s all Brat and Jr! And the father, if my memory serves. But then, out of all my biological siblings, I am the shortest. The next shortest is/was 5’8″. Apparently, that squirrel hunter was also the circus midget.
Then, it was nap time! Of course, even though he was tired, he wasn’t happy about this development! Isn’t that a pathetic face? Heh. Of course, if that was me putting him down, we’d be eye to eye. Yes, my daughter really IS that much taller than me!
So, there ya have it! The most recent Spud pics. Next month, I’ll be traveling my short self down to Texas for his first birthday. Had to believe it’s been a year. And what a year it’s been! But I won’t go into that!
