      WOW! But you know what? Up here in the "Frozen great white North" crocus plants are up & I saw some spring bulbs peeking out of the earth in my Mom's garden. We've basically had a green winter, here. Some snow comes, but it's gone in a few days. Even the storm that was forecast for our area currently is MUCH less than expected so far. Maybe 1-2" on the ground now.

        Speaking for myself, I have never heard: "I wish they would take out more taxes from my paycheck. I think the things this administration spends money on are so - well, AMERICAN."

            Two of my personal favorite statements that had to be said to my siblings when they were little:

            "We don't lick the bottom of our shoes!"
            "We don't ride the cat!" (Big cat, tiny toddler)

            I am not my own, I've surrendered to You, Lord.
            I am not of this world, Heaven is my home.

                  Better than a poke in the eye with a blunt stick ......... (why anyone would want to do that I don't know!)

                            Another dumb dutchman joke.


                            It goes:

                            Can you catch flies?

                            The yes answer is with a wheelbarrow.
                            With a wheelbarrow?
                            Yes, when it's full of manure. Haha....

                            But if you answer Nein, then they tell you to close your mouth.


                            The guts to the joke are above.
