June Bug! . . . No, It's October, 2007, Bug (NOT) -- and two (2) items for "Didya know?" -- and one (1) lagniappe
October Bug could not be found. I wonder where he went?
--the lagniappe: Wet Pants Story
A nine-year-old was kid sitting at his desk when suddenly there is a puddle between his feet and the front of his pants are wet. He thinks his heart is going to stop because he cannot possibly imagine how this has happened. It's never happened before, and he knows that when the boys find out he will never hear the end of it. When the girls find out, they'll never speak to him again as long as he lives.
The boy believes his heart is going to stop; he puts his head down and prays this prayer, "Dear God, this is an emergency! I need help now! Five minutes from now I'm dead meat"
He looks up from his prayer and here comes the teacher with a look in her eyes that says he has been discovered.
As the teacher is walking toward him, a classmate named Susie is carrying a goldfish bowl that is filled with water. Susie trips in front of the teacher and inexplicably dumps the bowl of water in the boy's lap. The boy pretends to be angry, but all the while is saying to himself, "Thank you, Lord! Thank you, Lord!"
Now all of a sudden, instead of being the object of ridicule, the boy is the object of sympathy. The teacher rushes him downstairs and gives him gym short to put on while his pants dry out. All the other children are on their hands and knees cleaning up around his desk. The sympathy is wonderful. But as life would have it, the ridicule that should have been his has been transferred to someone else - Susie.
She tries to help, but they tell her to get out. "You've done enough, you klutz!"
Finally, at the end of the day, as they are waiting for the bus, the boy walks over to Susie and whispers, "You did that on purpose, didn't you?"
Susie whispers back, "I wet my pants once too."

I could not see any of your pictures on your blog today ??? Not sure why as your other pictures are showing up. I'm guessing the photo was/is of your table top of that great antique/vintage table ... minus the piles of mail. I like all things vintage ;)

I think Blogger is acting up a little. A few times today I have had to go to 'refresh' and then the pictures come in ok the next time.
Not just this blog either.

Hi Jim ~~ Enjoyed your post ~ enjoyed
the pictures and the Wet Pants Story. Lovely table and chairs. My computer
is working well, but thanks for the tip about the Escape key. Will try it
next time I have strife.
I also liked the three choices for drug users in your previous post and
will pass it on to a friend.
Take care Jim, Hope all is well with you and Mrs. Jim. Regards, Merle.
