Time flies when you are having fun

My *sis is graduating today.  I cannot believe it.

When I met my husband she was in grade four and still wore pigtails.  Where has the time gone?

I was reminiscing this morning that I bought her first miniskirt, and she refused to wear it because it was too short. In fact she made her mom return it to the store for a bigger size so that it would sit lower and thus be longer.  Now, well perhaps I am just an old fuddy duddy, but she wears skirts that I would classify as a belt.

In the wink of an eye she is all grown up and wearing her graduation gown in a couple of hours.

Sis I am so incredibly proud of you!

Much love




Undone by the…uhm..paws of a porcupine

I am laughing so hard right now I am blowing snot bubbles.

I am not having a particularly eventful day so thought to read the Cape Times to see what is happening in the world.  On page 3 I found this bizarre story:

Man Caught living 3 lives

Three South African families found out that had more in common than their nationality, when it was revealed that loving father, Patrick Hendricks, was in fact husband to all 3 wives and father to the 6 children.

On Saturday 12th, Mersades Hendricks’ world was turned upside down when she discovered that her husband of 12 years had been living two other lives. The discovery came when she received an unexpected call from a local hospital, informing her that Mr Hendricks had been involved in a bizarre incident with a porcupine.

Upon hearing the news, Mrs Hendricks rushed to the hospital with her two children, Henlo and Kenlee, to find her husband in a coma and surrounded by a group of strangers.  After several introductions were made, they were shocked to the core when it was revealed that all three wives shared the same husband…

Apart from having a lot of explaining to do when he wakes up about his extra-marital shenanigans, I would like to know-more than anything, what exactly he did with a porcupine that landed him in a coma?
