Why do we have to have all these kids?

Yesterday at Garden Club, somebody asked me, "Has your cat brought home a snake yet? He will."

So today Winston and I had a talk. We have come to an understanding. I will let his stripy ass outside if there are NO SNAKES IN HIS LIPS when he returns home.

Tomorrow I am going to the store to buy toys for those children. Y'all are sending me nice comments saying what a good thing I am doing, but in reality, you have sent over FIVE HUNDRED DOLLARS! So the funny part? Is I will not even have to spend my own money. So, it's a nice thing YOU are all doing. I am just the shopper.

I mean, $500+ is enough for this family to have a Christmas, right? And I talked to them, and they do not WANT any food. They are going to dinner at her mother's. So maybe I will do a gift card or a grocery store card or whatever with the leftover cash.

Anyway, tomorrow I will take pictures of what I bought so you can see what your hard-earned cash got these kids. I'm so excited! It cracks me up that I STILL don't get to spend money!

Well, I get to spend your money.

You are going to be soooooo blessed!!!!!!!! A grocery store gift card would be a great idea. That way they get to shop as they need the food. Please post photos of all the gifts you purchase for the kids. Blessings to you dear friend.

$500 is more than this family of five spends for Christmas!

I agree that a grocery store gift card is a great idea.

I can't wait to see what you get!

Look at you! Livin' large in N.C. for less than a year and you're already adopting the lingo!

Your next lesson is the Southern definition of a prepositional phrase, i.e., a phrase that attempts to use ALL the prepositions in the English language. ("We went up on over down round by Momma's last night.")

Seriously though, what you're doing for this man and his family is just phenomenal. I heartily echo the sentiments of your regular posters. How come you were never that nice to me? ;-)P
