I Thought We Needed Some Culture With The 'FUNNY!!!" Today!

I learned how to upload Youtube videos!!! :-) I hope, over the next little time now, that you'll enjoy the things I share with you because of it. I've been wanting to do it for a long time, but felt like I'd better leave 'Well Enough' alone before I made my whole blog inoperable!! LOL
I shared my first attempt last night. I was surprised at how well it worked, although not perfectly. The second video was much larger than I wanted, and covered up my Wuglyees shop widget! LOL...WHATEVER! You could still see it! :-)
So, today I thought I'd try another one! I hope you enjoy the soft sounds of "Pachelbel Canon in D". After that I want to tell you the cute story of what happened last night. So, after you're all mellow and cultured, come read some 'FUNNY'! ^_^.
...The phone rang. Hubby answered it. It was my dad's voice, in an excited tone, but in the background were also the soft voices of kids saying: "No, Granddaddy!!" Then my dad said: "Is this the Police Department?! I have some bad kids here I'd like you to come and get!!"
After hubby figured out who it was, and what he was doing....he played along! :-) My dad said: "Officer, can you come and pick up two bad kids from...(he said the address). The kids got really loud and said: "No, that really the Police?! O_0" {They sounded a little scared.} My dad said: "Yes it is. You wanna talk to him?" They said nervously: "Yeah."
Hubby, in a deep voice deeper than his usual deep voice I mean} said: " Who is this?! (Grrrr!) Did I hear that there's some bad kids over there?! Do I need to come and pick you up!!"....One of the little ones (one was about 4 and the other was about 6 years old) said, in an "Awwww!-I-know-who-you-are!" kind of voice: "Who are you?!!"
Hubby repeated what he said, and then.....the two of them started laughing hysterically! LOL In the meantime we could hear my father saying: "No, really, it's the police! You wanna go to jail?!" But they weren't buying his story anymore. 'Uncle Jeff' let the cat out of the bag with his bad police officer acting job! ^_^
We could hear that they were jumping all over my father, and giggling in that 'little-kid-belly-laugh giggle'. ^_^ My nieces love my father so much. It was cute to see that my dad had lost his fierce authority stance. He had it strongly in place when we were kids. But it didn't scare us for long either! :-)
He thanked Jeff for trying, and said goodbye. Before the phone clicked though, we heard them tussling and giggling like crazy, and heard my dad say: "Where's my rope?..." I'm afraid he can threaten all he wants. They're onto him now! :-) ...Just a reminder of why I am the person I am, and feel the way I do about myself. I had good 'Brought-upsy'!! :-) Sara Haze's song "Lovely" says it all.

Have a good rest of the day everybody!! :-)

Remember Being Little?

Do you remember being little?
Wish you could stay like that?
Playing 'Hopscotch' in the yard,
and dressing up in your Mama's hat?

Do you remember getting attention
just by smiling, being you?
Singing into pens and brushes?
Getting dimes for things you drew?

Do you remember flannel Pjs,
with the closed in, too warm, feet?
Or the shiny patten leathers
you couldn't play in in the street?

Do you remember bouncy curls?
Wish your hair would do that now?
Or your first grade stage performance
with your shy and humble bow?

Do you remember being little?
Wake up and wonder where you're at?
Make yourself go back to sleep;
Then dream the world is just like that?

    happy easter to you!

  3. CinLynn, That's my Pop!! ^_^ ... Have a nice day today, Bead! Enjoy the meeting.

  4. Kamana, I've glad you liked it! :-) Have a good day!

  5. Good job with the videos! Very cute and fun story too...and yes, many times I wish I were little see my Dad and play with the freedom only little kiddos have! However, I'd skip over those pesky teen years!

  6. What a lovely phone call! I can just imagine the scene and all of the laughter following afterwards.
    You did a great job with the videos. Sara Haze has a beautiful voice.
    I love your poem :) it helped me remember some of the great things I did as a kid. Thanks :)

  7. Thanks yaya! It was fun recounted that phone call. I left out one part because I didn't think it would translate well internationally. I think the jist of it was good enough though. ^_^ My dad wasn't happy that my sisters had left him alone with the grands! LOL They were only suppose to be gone 30 miutes and it had been about 2 hours already!! He was losing his patience! ^_^ Oh! To be young again....NOT ME!!! LOL

  8. Jo-anne, I'm glad you got the jist of that call. It was so funny to me, listening to dad trying to get them to behave. ^_^ And thanks about the poem and the videos too. I'm afraid I still have to do some research on how to size the videos correctly, using the HTML though. They still were too big!...And yes, Sara Haze has a BEAUTIFUL voice!! Have a good rest of the day! :-]

  9. I've send you an email with a screenshot on how to change the size of a youtube video. I hope it helps :)

  10. Jo-anne, THANK YOU!!!!!!! :-) I always can count on you!!
