Pink Butt

Thank you Bev! Now pop on over to see all the pinkness

This is Pegi’s Butt.

Pegi is my youngest sister. As a mater of fact she is only two weeks older than my daughter.

This phenomenon is a little family tradition that I broke by not doing my part by having a baby when my granddaughter was born.

As If.

You see, I have an aunt who is a year younger than I am. We went to college together. Her being my aunt became so tedious to explain that we finally just told everyone we were cousins.

Pegi and Martie went to grade school together after my father died and they moved out to California.

All of this business, plus the fact that my brother married our step-sister, (When Mom remarried later), caused me to win the
“Weirdest Family Award,” in the teacher’s lounge, year after year.

(Until I taught with a gal whose brother was a convicted serial killer. That bumped me right out of my coveted position.)

Pegi, being the youngest kid in the family should have been spoiled rotten, but there was that damn Martie to compete with. Once at age two, as Mom held her granddaughter, Martie, in her lap, Pegi announced in a sweet little voice,

“I sink I’m gonna bomit.”

Martie lived to get her sweet, timid aunt in trouble.
Once (when they were three) Mom and I over heard this conversation;
Martie: “Come on, Pegi, Lets go play wif
the toothpaste!”
Pegi: “Okay.”
(Thirty seconds later)
Martie: “Gram! Pegi’s in the tooth paste!”

My favorite story about the owner of this butt is about her favorite doll. It was a Pussycat Doll, and I now notice they are valuable collector dolls.

Our middle sister had a date with a guy she really liked. He came in and sat down on the sofa. He inadvertently sat upon the doll. She ran in and squealed, “You’re sitting on my Pussy!”
I don’t think there ever was a second date with that poor guy.

I would have more to say, but my son just popped up with chocolate all over his face. My oldest daughter is 18 while the youngest is four. I don't think there will be an chances of me having another baby at the same time the oldest is having one because I told her she couldn't have sex til she was like...70? I may let up on that and let it go at 50. We'll have to wait and see. You still get the weirdest fam. award. No way the convict brother story can beat out yours!

Great story. Glad I stopped by for another visit.

Too funny, Lynn!!

My husban, who is a bit older than me, has a neice who is my age. I cringe when she introduces me as her aunt, but I think she gets a kick out of it!!

My father was working on all the great grandkids that were accumulating in my family until my 44 year old sister had 2 more kids. Now he is a grandfather again...

:-) Very funny.

My husband's nephew was his best man at our wedding. And the nephew is older than my husband.

Wow, what a great comment. :)

Comfy pinks! YEAH!
Love the rooster things, some different than I've seen. I am slowly making the rounds. Even though I didn't make the list I just had to play. Come by and see if you can.
Cancun...I'm jealous!
And love what you did with the lace's a win/win kind of thing.

So I'm guessing dinner at the work acquaintance's house was out of the question?
I do family trees and can tell you many times the mothers and daughters were having babies at the same time. After all if you are having 16 babies someones going to overlap don't ya think.

Hello Lynn -Look at your Feedjit...I've been wandering all over your blog and thought I'd never find my way back here to leave a comment. And now my head is spinning trying to figure out your family. Your brother married your stepsister who is your aunt and was later found out to be a serial killer? Did I get that right? You have lovely roosters and your sister has a lovely butt but she must not be very smart if I got your other post right! :) Nancy (and I'm extremely smart!)

Thanks for the support about the comments I made on my blog today. I wasn't sure if I'd be getting hate mail or not☺ I guess I am just sick and tired of watching and hearing adults act worse than little kids on a playground!

Housewife Savant said...

This answers some questions we were all too polite to ask.

You crack me up.

Shirl said...

Hello Lynn, I'm stil making my Pink Saturday visits. Thank you so much for stoppoing by and leaving such a sweet comment. You asked what I was going to do with the blue mason jars. I like to use them for fresh flowers. I also put jars on the counters and fill with candy and pretzel sticks for my grandsons. They also look pretty setting on a window sil.
Your pink post is adorable! How funny. Wow you sure have been all over the world. Great for you! I'm to chicken to fly so I'll have to rely on the Travel Channel to see the world. LOL
Bless you, Shirl
