Steve's found his calling...

For real. He's pondered for years what he should do with his life that would make him lots of money and make him happy at the same time. I think the seed was first planted in his mind when that old barracuda slut lady was all over him at the bar a few weeks ago. I'm sure, he left there, thinking, "Hmmm...."

Well, for the past week, he's been working at a (different) older lady's home for about a week now. She needed some concrete steps up the side of her house and hired Steve to do it. (That's his real, current job for those of you that don't know.)

So anyway, today he actually poured the steps and he tells me tonight how the woman's been "flirting" with him since he started there. I laughed. This is typical of Steve. He thinks everyone is flirting with him. (And truthfully, he's usually right. The man isn't exactly hideous looking if you know what I mean.) So he then proceeds to tell me that when he knocked on her door to tell her he was leaving for the day, she invited him inside, after saying, "I'll be home all night tonight." Uhhhh.... huh? LOL! Anyway, Steve tells her they're just about done with the whole job and that he'll be back in a week or two to put the railing on for her.

He said she leaned over and gave him a HUGE hug, saying, "Thank you sooo much!" By now, I'm laughing hysterically. Who the hell hugs their concrete dude? LOL! And Steve, never being one to just let a true story be funny on it's own, then says, "It was OK until she grabbed a hunk of my ass while she was hugging me." ROFL!

So anyway, he's decided, given the circumstances the past few weeks, that he's going to be a "gigolo for old ladies." How do I feel about this? Well, when he said it, I tossed a "Work it baby," over my shoulder and told him that he should, "Go take their money and buy me nice shit."

See? I didn't need a job dammit. We just didn't realize we hadn't tapped into Steve's hidden potential. Sigh.


OK. Let's move on... It's photo time! :)

It seems like forever since I've posted any, and lucky you -- I just uploaded a ton to Flickr. So sit back and wipe the drool off your faces as I bore you with photos of my kids.

First up, we have some fishing pictures. We took the girls for a bit last weekend, just to get them out of the house. :)









(Hannah was there too. I just suck and took more pictures of Grace. [blush])

BUT... next up we have Hannah. The girls were drawing with chalk the other day, and I have more pictures of Hannah that day then Grace. See? It all balances out...

And this, my friends, is Hannah's "Secret Agent Man" pose. Don't ask. I've found that if I don't question her and her logic, all seems right with the world....

And last but not least... a bunch of layouts I've done over the past few weeks. All complete credits can be seen here.

And with that, we end with a Quote of the Day. It's a random generator, so we're going to take what we get and hope they're decent...

You know, I didn't want to say anything, but this is what R does. LOL.
No seriously. In his job he comes across many "older" women and he's usually in their home and boy do they hit on him. It's like they see fresh meat and get all excited.
Fun but harmless.

P.S. I loved seeing all the new pics from you. That Grace looks like a natural with that fishing rod.

Great pics! Great layouts (gosh, I have paper but haven't even printed Easter pics yet -- I'm still old school -- no digital yet....)

So glad to read a little silly, funny, LOL and joy in your bloggies again! Hope all is well with the Nephew -- sure hope he's getting home.

Happy Tuesday!!!

Oh, digital camera just not a digital scrapper yet....some friends and your layouts are encouraging me though.

But, then what would I do with all my die cuts and physical stuff?
