Kids are so quick off the mark now, just to see what they can get away with. :mrgreen:

I wonder if he would like a teddy bear as a wedding present ;)

Congrats to him! :D I'm sure they'd love one ;) maybe one with a veil..?

Nah they were keeping an eye on her because of the risk of catching the runs.
If you can fill the unforgiving minute,
With sixty seconds worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a man my son.

We sold several little bears just before Valentines Day to 10 or 11 year old boys who wanted to give them to their 'girlfriends' :D
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

Catch Up, was it diarrhea or dire rear she was suffering from?

I like it! We'll just let her keep scaring them away.

That's such a sweet story! :D Maybe I'm just in denial. I don't remember having any crushes that young.

Congrats to your brother Mad!

Didn't make me smile, had tears rolling down my face.

I know some of them are fake, but they're still hilarious.
Some are born great, some achieve greatness and some have greatness thrust upon them.

The rest of us are a bit crap.
