Kids and Puddles
Someone said to never underestimate a child’s ability to get into more trouble. A friend sent me this picture a few days ago, and I thought  you might enjoy it. Do you remember being a kid? Water puddles where not something to avoid. No way. That where the fun started. I used to like to jump into the puddles, and that caused the splashes. Seems like Mom did not like that at all.


katzkids_kidsWhen I was a boy there was a cartoon in the newspaper called the Katzenjammer Kids. Here’s what I found on the internet about them: “Hans and Fritz Katzenjammer- These two juvenile antiheroes were the original troublesome twosome. Katzenjammer in German literally means "the howling of cats," and it is also German slang for a hangover. A hangover would be a pleasure compared to the dire antics of Hans and Fritz, who play tricks on neighbors, pets, tradesmen, and any other available target, including their own mother. The Katzies, as they are often called, are born troublemakers. Their neat clothes and innocent faces conceal their deep-seated ability to do mischief.” Quoted from King Features.

Tennessee Granddaddy Says:
Remember Superman comics? As a kid I used to read Superman them. My sister and I always thought it was interesting that superman would say, “I’ll repair this later” when he was crashing through a wall or building to save someone. The comic writer was trying to teach that Superman would not damage something and leave it destroyed. A lot good things moral actions were taught in the old days in comics, etc.
Not so much today.

Joke of the Day

An computer geek was crossing a road one day when a frog called out to him and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess." He bent over, picked up the frog and put it in his pocket.

The frog spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will stay with you for one week." The geek took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and returned it to the pocket.

The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a princess.” Again the geek took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back into his pocket.

Finally, the frog asked, "What is the matter? I've told you I'm a beautiful princess, that I'll stay with you and be your girl friend. Why won't you kiss me?"

The geek said, "Look I'm a geek. I don't have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog, now that's cool."

But, grandmom's love puddles. If I am with my granddaughter and come to a puddle, I can't resist telling her to jump in the puddle. I am like Hans and Fritz. Thanks for sharing the fun.
