Chickenmom is NOT a happy camper .....

I have really, really screwed up good this time! I cannot get my camera's video and pictures into Blogger. I don't know what I did, but whatever it was - it was wrong. Big time.They are now hiding somewhere in the new laptop. I put them in a new folder and now THAT is gone along with the pics and video. Will try to fix it for Monday.

Got a match??


Calling it "Amazing Art with matchsticks" does not do Patrick Acton's sculptures justice. Over the past 40 years, this Iowa native has been building some of the world's biggest and complicated matchstick sculptures. While some of the larger ones are in "Ripley's Believe it of Not Museums", many are in his own museum "Matcshstick Marvels" down the road from his home in Gladbrook, Iowa. Incredibly, he's made them all in his tiny basement workshop in his home. He estimates that he has used over 7.5 million matchsticks in his career. His most impressive builds include the State Capitol building, a huge Millenium Falcon complete with lights and working landing gear, a locomotive that kids can actually climb into, Hogwarts from Harry Potter and many many more. While most people would build a couple models, Patrick has over 100, each unique and spectacular not to mention impressive. To find out more and to visit the museum, check out his website at:

Today's funny :o)

(A paraprosdokian is a figure of speech in which the latter part of a sentence is unexpected and oft times very humorous.)
If I had a dollar for every girl who found me unattractive,
they'd eventually find me very attractive.
I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue
stand for freedom, until they're flashing behind you.
Today a man knocked on my door and asked for a
small donation towards the local swimming pool,
so I gave him a glass of water.
Artificial intelligence is
no match for natural stupidity.
I'm great at multi-tasking:
I can waste time, be unproductive,
and procrastinate all at once.
If you can smile when things go wrong,
you have someone in mind to blame.
Take my advice,
I'm not using it.
Hospitality is the art of making guests feel
like they're at home when you wish they were.
Behind every great man
is a woman rolling her eyes.
Ever stop to think
and forget to start again?
Women spend more time wondering
what men are thinking than men spend thinking.
He who laughs last
thinks slowest.
Is it wrong that only one company
makes the game Monopoly?
Women sometimes make fools of men,
but most guys are the do-it-yourself type.
Men say women should come with an instruction manual;
but since when has any man stopped to read the instructions.
I was going to give him a nasty look,
but he already had one.
Change is inevitable,
except from a vending machine.
I was going to wear my camouflage shirt today,
but I couldn't find it.
If at first you don't succeed,
skydiving is not for you.


Good morning pics!

Benji trying to get ALL the girls to come out:
