  5. Great tonight, Peggy! Dad probably will go get a pair of crutches. Not that he tries on the Internet slang, but lame would't phase him anyway.
    ..
    Peggy, I didn't see your name on Mr. Linky's sign-up role tonight. You will want to check it out.

    And guess what? My word verification was "embar."

  6. A Kazoo band! Surely suicide was a better option.
    Nice take on the picture, Peggy. Take care of yourself.

  7. Jim;

    Dad will not understand the word lame.
    Thanks for the heads up on MR Linky's.
    I signed myself in again, so I'll keep checking back. I never even thought to recheck.
    "Embar" goes so well with my microfiction.
    Thanks for the laugh.

  28. I know a Dad or two who would be the biggest & most embarrassing they could be to burn a crimson shade in their kidlets' cheeks! :>
