  • Happy Parents' Day Puzzle

    So I woke up early this morning to a surprise.....both the kids decided to declare today "Parents' Day" and spent the week secretively creating hand made gifts. I heard my son shuffling around the house a bit after 6 AM, so I figured he was up to something. When I went to check, he ordered me back to bed, else I'd ruin the surprise. A few hours later, the table was all set for breakfast, there were streamers and balloons up (the balloons were limp, since the kids tried to "tie" them shut with tape, since both were unable to knot them, LOL), "Happy Parents Day" signs, and other goodies. It was a great surprise, and really made my day. My son even washed my car a few minutes ago!!

    Anyway, here is one of my gifts. The kids painted cardboard puzzle pieces, and put something they like about me on each of them. Talk about a tear jerker! I haven't had much time to post on the forum the past few months, so I thought I'd share this with everyone.

            That's the part of parenting that our parents don't tell us about - when it's fun - it is really really fun. Sometimes life just don't get any better than that!

            Happy Parent's Day!

              Thanks, guys......the kids are great, and I'm really proud of them. "Parents' Day" was fantastic.

              Now......I'm wondering if there is a hidden agenda......I've been hearing mutterings of how there should be a "Kids Day."

                  That's weird, on my Volume disk 5, in the index I have Aticle index, Issue PDF's, and pattern pullouts.
                  The pattern pullouts are broken up into 8-1/2 x 11 s

                  At he end of each issue is a copy of the entire pullout for that issue....

                  Our house is 3/4 of a mile from the bay, and then about 2 miles across the bay by boat to fire island and the ocean. About half of the bay is shallow with lots of shore birds etc. Google Belllport Village in maps. For us this place is a small slice of heaven.

                  and this is a test paste from notepad, win10

                  ROFL it works today, Must have been something I did, but I have no idea what it is since after it wouldn't take it the first attempt, I was very careful to copy and paste again. Glad to see it is working....
