    The Kids and Some Old Man
    Finally after a long time I have a picture of me and the kids together. I have a lot of pictures of just the kids but this is one of the few of all of us together. I hate being photographed This pic is from my nieces wedding up in the Catskills over the summer. I must be standing in a hole because my sons look taller than me

    What a great looking bunch...they make a papa proud I am sure!

    My son who is only 11 wears the same size shoe as I do. I really don't know what to do to stop his growing....if you have any suggestions let me know.

    I stopped watering them but that didn't work Zimmy I'm just hoping that it's them growing and not me shrinking and Yuppers to proud Papa.

    Thank Zimmy, Rexanne and Loxly for the kind words

    Great pic, Pakcy, looks like you've got a terrific family!
    Following everyone else is a GREAT way to become average.

    Nice pic Packy, but I didn't see an old man in it. Kids just make you feel old.

    I see you have a teenage daughter about the same age as mine Packy. This will make sense to you:

    Teenaged Daughter - Owner's Manual
    (Author Unknown)


    Congratulations! You are now the proud new owner of a teenaged daughter.
    Please read this manual carefully, as it describes the maintenance of your new daughter and answers important questions about your warranty (which does NOT include the right to return the product to the factory for a full refund.)

    IF YOU FEEL YOU HAVE RECEIVED YOUR TEENAGER IN ERROR

    To determine whether you were supposed to receive a teenaged girl, please examine your new daughter carefully.

    Does she:

    a) Look very similar to your original daughter, only with more makeup and less clothing?

    b) Refuse to acknowledge your existence on the planet Earth (except when requesting money)?

    c) Sleep in a burrow of dirty laundry?



    If any of these are true, you have received the correct item. Nice try, though.

    BREAK-IN PERIOD
    When you first receive your teenaged daughter, you will initially experience a high level of discomfort. Gradually, this discomfort will subside, and you will merely feel traumatized. This is the "Break-in Period," during which you are becoming accustomed to certain behaviors that will cause you concern, anxiety, and stress. Once you have adapted to these behaviors, your teenager will start acting even worse.

    ACTIVATION

    To activate your teenaged daughter, simply place her in the vicinity of a telephone or Instant Messenger. No further programming is required.

    SHUTDOWN

    Several hours after activation, you may desire to shut down your teenaged daughter. There is no way to do this.

    CLEANING YOUR TEENAGED DAUGHTER

    Having a teenaged daughter means learning the difference between the words "clean" and "neat." Teenaged daughters are very clean, because they take frequent showers that last more than an hour. They will scrub themselves with expensive, fragrant soaps that you must purchase for them because like I'm sure I'm going to use like the same kind of soap my mom and dad use. When they have completely drained the hot-water tank, they will step out and wrap themselves in every towel in the bathroom, which they will subsequently strew throughout the house. If you ask them to pick up the towels, you are confusing "clean" with "neat." Teenagers are very busy and do not have time to be neat. They expect others to pick up after them. These others are called "parents."

    FEEDING YOUR TEENAGED DAUGHTER

    Your teenaged daughter requires regular meals, which must be purchased for her at restaurants because she detests everything you eat because it is like so disgusting. She does not want you to accompany her to these restaurants, because some people might see you and like I'm sure I want my friends to see me eating dinner with my parents. Either order take-out food or just give her the money, preferably both. If you order pizza, never answer the doorbell because the delivery boy might see you and ohmigod he is so hot. Yes, your daughter's idea of an attractive man is the pizza boy.

    CLOTHING YOUR TEENAGED DAUGHTER

    Retailers make millions of dollars a year selling stylish and frankly sensible clothing that will look adorable on your daughter. If you enjoy shopping, you will love the vast selections that are available to you. Unfortunately, your teenaged daughter wants to dress like a lap dancer. You may be able to coerce her into putting on a cute outfit before leaving the house, but by the time she walks in the schoolhouse door, she will be wearing something entirely different.

    OTHER MAINTENANCE

    Teenaged daughters require one of two levels of maintenance: "High," and "Ultra High." Your daughter is "Ultra High." This means that whatever you do won't be enough and whatever you try won't work.

    WARRANTY
    This product is not without defect because she has your genes, for heaven's sake. If you think this is not fair, talk to your parents, who think it is hilarious. Your teenaged daughter will remain a teenager for as long as it takes for her to become a woman, which in her opinion has already happened and as far as you are concerned never really will. If you are dissatisfied with your teenaged daughter, well, what did you expect? In any event, your warranty does not give you your little girl back under any circumstances, except that deep down she's actually still there - you just have to look for her.
    Peace,

    Rexanne

    Good looking crowd, Packy but ohmygod...three teenagers? You poor man! And yet in the photo not one of them is snarling or sulking, so it looks like you hit the adolescent jackpot!

    BTW, we got about half a foot of snow last night. Did you send that or should I blame Susan?

    Packy,

    You need to find a discount College for that group. Looks like they are on the right road to a future. Who's that old bum in the back?

    Thanks and no doubt kids make you feel old or should I say age a little faster

    Rexanne, the owners manual is dead on

    Suzigeek, don't worry about the cleaning up when their older, the manual for girls is pretty close for boys also

    Rhea, overall they are truely good kids but like most they have their days when Dad isn't too happy with them As for the snow, nothing here so it must of came from Susan who BTW should be catching up quite a bit now

    Lol Poopie to discount college. My oldest is a Junior at college and my daughter just bombed her first semester and it's costing me over $500.00 for her to take a class that started today during their winter break Today is one of those not too happy with her days My son did the same thing but started an upward swing his second semester. I'm a little easy the first semester as I realize it's their first time on their own. Hopefully she will follow her brothers steps the rest of the way I think the old man in the back must be their grampa or something

    Thanks all for the nice words
