More than..

 The other day Benjamin's Mom on Facebook told about her and Benjamin were telling each other:

"I love you more than..."  and then say something like "water in the ocean" or "Sunlight in the DTheaytime" or in something else in that mindset"

Then Benjamin told her "I love you more than there is pee in a pottie" and broke up laughing!

I like that.  It shows he is witty and now working on his delivery.

That's my grandson!!

Somebody Might Be Out There

UNCLE JOHN'S BATHROOM READER is sort of like an almanac with a lot of interesting and sometimes unbelievable facts.  I read it regularly, in fact, most of the time when I am sitting on the John.  I don't think it is published annually like almanacs are - I do not think it has a routine publishing pattern.

Anyway, I am presently reading  UNCLE JOHN'S BATHROOM'S READER  THE WHOLE WORLD'S GONE CRAZY.  Today I read an interesting article about radio signals from space that may possibly change everything.

Google 6EQUJ5 and read the summary yourself.

Throwback Thursdy - True Story

The following has been copied and pasted from a post from a previous Chicken-fat post:

Throwback Thursday True Story:  One time I remember standing on the steps at Waterman Street School, waiting for the bell to ring so we could go in.  We were in about the 4th grade.  Larry pulled out a condom and showed me, and I was impressed with the little white O-ring around the opening of it. Which I had a very scientific observation that went something like this: "so that is a rubber? Where do you buy them at?"
Again, years later, again,Larry would take a condom out of his pocket. This time it was on the back row of the Hill Street Baptist Church. I wasn’t along with Larry and my other friends that Sunday night but I got several first hand accounts. They heard that on Sunday nights at Hill Street Baptist Church some available teenage girls went there.  So, the boys went to check it out. During the sermon Larry got bored and pulled out a condom and started playing with it. It wasn’t long until he blew it up and tied a little knot in the O-ring thing. His cousin Jesse, also one of us, reached over and flipped the balloon shape rubber. Larry wasn’t expecting it and it got loose from him and landed in the aisle. There was a big fan at the near the back pews in the doorway that kept the air circulating and brought in air from the outside. The white balloon was yanked into action by the fan’s wind current. It floated and gently bounced down the aisle like it had a soul of its own and wanted it saved by coming down to the preacher’s inspiring sermon. Larry and the others quickly left the church.

Those were the days...

The Clyde Herring Gang

As you may recall (or may not) several days ago I had a picture of the Herring Family that lived in the Forsyth-Alpharetta - Milton area hoeing their garden.
These two pictures are some of the same people and in the same area but doing something different. They are not working the dirt, they look like they are partying
The picture with eleven young men and women in it is named "Clyde's Gang", Clyde was Clyde Herring. She is one that would die of an unknown disease soon.
The other picture of three young people, Clyde is the one on the left, unknown in the center, and on the right is Anna's great aunt Gertrude Jones Wood (1899 - 1986).

Before Alfred E. Newman stumbled along, MAD's mascot was Melvin.  Many of the early MAD's protagonists were named MELVIN.... like,  for instance, take this story, MELVIN OF THE APES. in MAD #2.
