Father’s day is soon approaching, and will be on Sunday June 19th. I’ve decided that there just aren’t very many good gift ideas, so I did some research for some unusual gifts.

I know if my dad were still alive, he would be thrilled to receive any of the following gifts shown below (well, he might not like the stuffed unicorn). But hey! These are fun and wacky gifts to give dad to show your appreciation for all he does!

So, forget the usual “tie” gift, and check out these neat and nifty gifts!

Dad's dream chainsaw

Every dad needs a chainsaw (unless he lives in the desert)…..so, why not make it flashy and artistic!

 

My dad loved food….he was a happy jolly man with a big belly to prove it! If you have a lot of time, maybe bake dad this cute owl, and tiny owl babies to munch on. Yum!

Or, if your dad is a health freak, and he would rather eat raw fish, try making him some cute hello kitty sushi! Fun!

 

If dad is having a bad day, he might need to carry his flask with him….

Dad works hard at the office, I’m sure he could use a cute bear USB port and clock to cheer him up!

 

If dad is a beer drinker, he could really use a cute DJ kitty bottle opener!

 

Finally, I put the unicorn pillow as a possible gift, as well, just look at that silly face….it will put a smile on dad’s face for sure.

 

Please let me know what you plan to get your dad for father’s day, and remember…..he does NOT want a tie.

So, I found this old advertisement for “vitamins”, that gave housewives “super energy”………. and it it hilarious.

I’m thinking, “I need those vitamins”, as it seems I just don’t have the energy to  “shampoo the carpet, give the dog a bath, clean out the garage, go through all the closets and get rid of extra “stuff”, clean the baseboards, dust the lamps and fans, weed the flower gardens….all that besides the everyday stuff of cooking, cleaning, laundry,and basic pick up and put away things that everyone else didn’t put away.”

Oh....the good ol' days!

What do you suppose was in those vitamins?  I’m sure today they are “illegal”…..oh well.

Any thoughts?

The news is that World War Three is supposed to start in November of this year (yes 2010), and end in 2014.

To make things worse, it isn’t going to be just any old war….no….there will be nukes too!

So, in preparation of this impending “End of the world” and “Armageddon”, I have been searching for information, equipment, and supplies to better survive this soon to be doomsday event.

The weird thing is I was talking on the phone with one of my brothers, just yesterday, and I happened to mention to him, “Oh, by the way, WWIII is supposed to start in November”. To my surprise, he replied, “Yeah, I know….right before the elections”. The even weirder thing is we were so blasé about it, and nonchalant…..like that is some kind of normal part of a conversation. I kind of laughed to myself, as I thought how bizarre our conversation would sound to an outsider.

The basic nuclear survival kit.

We both laughed, as he stated….”you tell Steve this kind of stuff all the time, and he ignores you right?”, and I replied, “yes, he thinks i’m crazy”, and he said, “Well, Birdie ignores me too!” (Birdie is his wife’s nickname).

So, I told him I was researching for bomb shelter information, either a ready-made one, or instructions on how to build one, and that I would e-mail him the video of the prediction I saw regarding this WWIII.

Home sweet home. Looks like the yellow submarine?

I really hope this “war thing” isn’t going to happen, as I really don’t like camping. I know you are thinking, “What? What is she talking about?” But lets face it, whenever a disaster happens, it is just like camping. No electricity, no running water, no microwave to warm up a “quick” meal, no T.V. Or computer. It will be just like camping…..and oh such an inconvenience. Especially the part about going to the “out house”, to do your duty. I just don’t like it period.

Ready made military meals.....don't they look yummy!

The last time we had water and power out was because of a hurricane (and that was just a week), I ended up dipping in the swimming pool (albeit dirty), to try to bathe myself. I was NOT a happy camper. I really like being clean and smelling good, I don’t like to sweat….especially all day, everyday.

I consider myself a “survivor” and non-high maintenance woman, I know how to do a lot of survivor type stuff, like fishing and hunting, and I have a post for you men later regarding why you should not chose a high-maintenance woman (yes, you really do need to think with your head…not the other one in your pants) for these type of emergencies….do you really want a whiny woman who cries because her nail broke? Or do you want a woman who isn’t afraid of spiders, bears, or blood thirsty zombies?…..yeah….you choose. But like I said that is a post for a later time.

So….I have some land secured in a far away remote place (an undisclosed location), and while looking for my much needed supplies, I ran across this, “Survival Island for sale”. Wow, how lucky could I be?

The ultimate survival island....has a landing strip.

My own island with an air-strip and everything! It is out in the middle of the Caribbean too!

And if you want to see a video about it, you can here:

The only bad thing, is well it is $5 million dollars (for the opening bid). Darn it! I just don’t have that kind of money lying around. And I really wanted my own island for this impending WWIII!

If any of you are wealthy and have an extra five million, and are feeling generous, please contact me, and we’ll work out something.

In the mean time, I suggest we all go to Costco, or Sams’ Club, and start stocking up on toilet paper and other necessities for this war. Also, if any of you want to provide some great survivor info. Well, please do share!

I’m trying to keep a positive attitude….but man it sure is difficult.

Ciao!

Earlier today, around lunch time, my son and I were both standing next to each other in front of the kitchen counter, silently eating our respective sandwiches, while watching our lone goldfish in his tiny fish bowl.  Between bites of my sandwich, I asked him, “Do you suppose he gets lonely?” “Yeah, he probably does”, he replied.  And we started discussing how no one really pays attention to lonely old “Wally”, yes that is our goldfish’s name.

But then my son said, “Well, actually he probably gets over it pretty fast, I heard somewhere that gold fish have a memory of about three seconds”.  We both laughed, then continued discussing, with such a short memory, could he be depressed or lonely?  Because three seconds later, he would be over it, and on to some other “gold fish thoughts”.  We laughed again.  He then said, “It would be like forgetting where you are, or 480 times a day, the day would seem new, so he wouldn’t get depressed or lonely (1440 minutes per day divided by three= 480).  So after our “deep thoughts” on the life of Wally, we decided he isn’t lonely or depressed.

I suspect that as long as  Wally gets fed, and someone cleans his little bowl out every once in awhile, he  is just happy as a clam in his fishbowl world.

Wally looks pretty happy to me.

So……what do you think?

Everyone knows it doesn’t snow in Texas……at least,  not in Houston, right?  Well…..apparently it does!

Believe me, I was just as shocked as everyone else.  I listen to the forecast, because, well……its just a good idea to know what is supposed to happen where you live when it comes to the weather.

I was pleasantly surprised that it actually did snow…..it is so pretty to watch, and it makes everything look so fresh and clean…..like a white blanket.

I’m not a stranger to snow…..but it is strange to experience snow here…..so, here are some pictures of me and my son…..reveling in the snow.
