Age (but he is cute)

He's older than the oldest man
that anyone has ever known.
He's older than the Internet;
he's older than the telephone.
He's older than the printed word,
the ancient Greeks, the dodo bird.
He's older than the pyramids
and prehistoric hominids.
He's older than the dinosaurs,
the earth, the sun, the moon and stars.
He's old as mud, he's old as dust;
he's wrinkled up and turned to rust.
He's musty, crusty, stinky, dirty.
Simply put, Dad's turning thirty.

This poem is called Ancient by the way ...
and written by Kenn Nesbitt

So what does that make mine?

He's forty!
Actually his birthday is not until May, but I liked this poem and thought it was funny.

Sorry Big Dog, but made fun of The Cat's Mother last time!

Today we were talking about stereotypes.  It is something that really annoys my Mom.
This is The Cat's Mother definition of stereotype.

Stereotype:  To lump everyone in the same basket.
To say that everyone in Texas is a bible-wielding-gun-holding-crazy-guy.
That isn't true.
We know someone from there, and she doesn't act like that.
Of course she could be the only one and thats why she can't make any friends :)
But that's still not everyone.
Note: The Cat's Mothers words.

If this didn't help here is the definition from
–verb (used with object)
to make a stereotype of.
to characterize or regard as a stereotype: The actor has been stereotyped as a villain.
to give a fixed form to.

They are Back ...

Well the Cat's Mother is back from Blissdom.  
She and my Geography teacher/Kooky Ninja's mother went to a blog convention.  
When looking for a pic of something for my school work I came across a file called
 "Duck and Blissdom".  
This is two of the many pics that were in there.
The duck eating out of 'it's' bowl.
This is a duck that thinks it lives at our house.  
And no!  It doesn't actually have it's own bowl, people. 
 Do you think we are that animal crazy?
For the next pic: 
1. Cover all children's eyes who are under 11.
2.  Take deep breathes.
3.  And prepare yourself for....  

The Rock Stars!
They were enjoying themselves from the look of things.
 They of course still had us in mind.
Kooky Ninja's Mother and mine, told her to come to our house.
Now only they had bothered to tell the people in the house this....
I'm serious they didn't tell Big Dog, Princess or yours truly about this.
So Kooky Ninja arrived,
Big Dog wasn't home right then,
And I was 'Princess sitting'.
This is one of the rules we have.
Do not let anyone in or answer the door.
So after a five minute argument.
We let them in. 
Guess they were too busy having their photo moment
(Love you Mom!)
