"Not Me Monday" @ 90 degrees

Not me Monday on a Tuesday: Really this is okay. First of all ,this is my blog and if I get to a "Not me Monday" on a Friday then, so what? I will not, however, get to Not Me Monday on a Sunday ~ I am never that far ahead............I'm always days behind. Second and best of all, this is a "Not Margaret Monday" and was just too funny not to post.
Sorry Sis! But, I had to! Here goes: Margaret did NOT see me walking Sunday afternoon with Kathryn and Elizabeth in a back pack. She did NOT try to stop to see if we were okay..........(Yes! We were having a very happy time.) But, she couldn't stop because a car was coming our way. She did NOT travel down the road out of site and didn't come back. I waited, gave her a call.............She did NOT answer saying "Oh! Sorry! Oh Gee! I'll call you back. Every thing is okay." I then see her Night in Shinning Armor drive past with a wave and a look of distress. I continued walking, not knowing; as she turned around to check on me, just like a good Samaritan would, she did NOT roll off the road and did NOT roll right into a ditch. Yes, Everything was fine and dandy! She was NOT at a 90 degree angle and did not notice right away something was a miss. She did NOT have to have 3 grown men sit on the back of her trunk to hold the car down at ground level while she tried to back the car out! It was just luck a neighbor had a tractor for the job. Her son was NOT very shaken and he did NOT tell me later, "My mom is a good driver. But, she is a better crasher." He did NOT decide to drive home safely with his dad.
To our amazement the car did not have a scratch on it and the people where fine.......Well, Alex might not be. But...........there is time and therapy he will get over it. AND! Margaret did NOT film this video. She would have held the camera straight rather then at a 90 degree angel. When we tried to fix the video we could not........It has come to our attention a video cannot be flipped like a picture.
This is a video of my brother,George, pushing a boat across a field into a pit of fire. He bought the boat a few years ago. He wanted to fix it up and then take it sailing. He could not work on the boat to make it sea worthy because he broke his leg badly shortly after his purchase.
The leg healed. The boat, however, did not!
Is this what happens when your "Ship comes in and your at the Airport?" video
Really, if you hold your head at a 90 degree angel you can't even tell.

  1. ;-) You forgot to mention my e-mail mistake. I sent someone a thank you note via on-line for a donation only to find out later that I put the WRONG NAME on the note. She e-mailed me with a "your welcome but my name is ..." ;-)

    By the way... I am much better looking in person than what that picture depicts! ;-)

    Very funny...especially when I read it...Fortunately...IT NEVER HAPPENED... NOT ME!! Love, Marg.

  3. The boat story is really a fun "three hour trip>" Here we are sitting on the porch when this small cabin cruiser comes sailing across our pasture. No one around and George, the Captain has decided not to go down with his ship. Very tramatic! Mother

  4. Dang. Too bad that boat ended up in the pit. It would have made a dandy playhouse for the kids......or an extra guest room (whatever the case may be) So glad Marg is O.K. I'd like to ask again how it happened, but I've been a passenger in her car several times. 'Nuff said. LOL Love you Marg!


    XOXO
