Art Linkletter was one of my favorites. He had a show, “Kids Say the Darnedest Thing”, and it always had me laughing.
Church today was no exception. I loved how a child announced it was her birthday and admonished everyone to wish her a happy birthday.
The other day I saw a family and the youngest told me she was 4 and soon she’d be 5. I asked her, “What happens when you turn eight?”
She responded, “You have no more birthdays after 8.”
Again, funny when taken in context.
Kids do say the darnedest things.
The elders were our dinner guests tonight. We (Elizabethe made the soup base) made a cream of scallion soup and I made a scallion, bacon, corn and cheddar cornbread. Just normal cornbread with some crispy bacon sautéed with the scallions, some frozen corn, and about 1/2 cup of grated cheddar cheese.
Today has been terribly muggy. When I woke this morning it was 80 and raining. It felt like a steam bath outside, and the heat and humidity have lingered all day. The only escape from such weather is air conditioning. The dehumidifier in the basement is pulling a few gallons of water each day. I figure we empty about 7 gallons a day from the thing. (This is just water that’s in the air!!!)
