Gotta ask.... how in the world did they earn the name Bangers?

That tickled me!

Bangers here would be gang kids.....brats, thugs, hoodlums and maybe even drug dealers

here are the pictures of the items I have for the OWH event tonight:

First one is of all 4 baskets full of candy treats.

The next one has the M&M tubes--Thanksgiving and Christmas themes

The middle picture has the 6 mini Dove bars and is fall themed

The long one has the Tic Tac boxes, with a thankful theme

And, the final one has 12 Kisses, fall themed.

I am hoping lots and lots sell tonight!

Loved the part where they were in the basement looking at that box of "naughty pictures" and they were burning them, and they found an old joint!

Good Morning--I am heading out of town for a few days for a convention. I will have my laptop along, so I will be able to chat along the way. We raised over $300 last night for OWH from selling the items and taking donations--it was a fun night! Laurie did an awesome job setting this up and keeping everything going!

Have a good weekend!

Barb! $300 is amazing!! you girls rock!!

we tried something new for dinner the other nite from Kraft, Sizzling Salads. you get one sauce for cooking, and a dressing for salad. we did the Caesar kit with chicken, very nummy....has black peppercorn sauce. you can also do shrimp or steak. i made a "wrap" for lunch with the leftovers, very nummy too.

Chicken Caesar SIZZLING SALADS recipe

i bought the southwest one too, which we will do burritos with one nite.

Etymology

Although it is sometimes stated that the term "bangers" has its origins in World War II, the term was actually in use at least as far back as 1919.[1] The term "bangers" is attributed to the fact that sausages, particularly the kind made during World War II under rationing, were made with water so they were more likely to explode under high heat if not cooked carefully; modern sausages do not have this attribute.

Hi Grace! How are you doing?

Holly, that is so goofy about your kitty! Midnight liked to sleep right next to me.

We did good Friday night at the game. It was nice, and the evening went really well. Two years running now and both have raised over $300 for Operation Write Home! I hope to continue this for years to come!

Vikki, I have no idea on the usage. Sorry.

Kerriann, good to hear Browny is back to work!

Dawn, I hope you have been behaving!

I'm glad you found that explanation - I had no idea!

Bug had a nice birthday. We gave him personalised number plates BUG 95. No car yet for them to go on, but it will come....

It was our turn to feed his youth group as you know. Browny had to work, so I did it on my own. He got Mitchell to come and help me, but he did it under sufference and was no much help. We had breakfast at Sizzler with Mum and Dad and Peta and Des and the kids. Annabelle was excited and was telling Mum how much she loves Bug on the way, then she wouldn't talk to him. Pretty funny.

Mitch turned up with a new tattoo on his forearm. I had just broke the news to Mum about the one on his side. We like them, but no-one else in the family does. I willtry to upload photos. Be back soon....

Here they are. The side one still has to be finished. Apparently with purple shading.

I am off to craft today with a couple of girls. Not sure what we are doing.

Bug has 2 weeks of school left. Not sure what he has planned for his holidays. I imagine he is going to his Dad for some of them. I expect he is waiting to see if he gets his licence on the 30th.

very nice tatts!! i can tell ya from expierence the ribs are a very "spicey" place to get tatted!

as for the family, tell them !

its ok to want them and also ok to not want them....what a boring world it would be if we all had the same opinion, likes, and dislikes!!
i have a lot of ink, and big Robert has none.....his body his choice. young Rob has some, also his choice!

how exciting for Bug to be getting his liscence soon!!! Yay Bug!!!
and yay for you too...now you can send him on errands and grocery runs etc etc.

Evenin'

Laurie, I'm doing ok. The shock of it is starting to ease, still have lots that has to be accomplished, however, because I haven't been able to shake the upper respiratory yuck, John doesn't want me to go up to help with any additional sorting/organizing. Stirring up dust and such. Went to the Dr tonight and will see if the chest x-ray shows anything. May just be a virus that has to run it's course. Sure won't miss all the coughing when it's finally gone!

Glad to hear you did so well for OWH.

TTYL!

WOW! I had no idea on the Bangers! Cool info! I love learning stuff like that!


Warning to those of you who do the blog readings... mine has a post of pure anger!
I had to put it all somewhere, that seemed like a good spot!
Even though i stuck it on FB first. Oh well, I am so Salty I couldn't care less!

Tell Mitch i Love the INK. the rib tat is awesome! Clint has one on his forearm that I picked out.
To me ink is a symbol of your personality.
Clint has 1 on his peck of a huge hog on a harley
then Rafiki on his bicep
a dragon, snake and knife on his shoulder
and another I picked on his back, which was a rubber stamp I wanted to buy and I had emailed 2 pics and asked to to help me shop.. both bear scenes. He printed 1 out and had it tatted on his shoulder blade
on his left bicep he has a heart with his 3 kids' names and a rose

I have 3 one with my kids' names a heart and ribbon, then on my ankle I have a worm Sweetie from Fox and the Hound
and a heart on my boob, it covers an old stab scar from High School days.
the scar always seems so huge and ugly and so noticeable when I was near a mirror, the tat, I forget is even there and i am never drawn to it

My mother freaked when she saw the kids names! wonder what she'd do if she ever knew about the others

Hi Girls

Hope all is well. Grace - big hugs to you and your family.

Gee, we were quiet over the weekend?

We had big storms here. Queensland is known for it's summer storms and we got some beauties over the weekend. Hail and inches in minutes. We are fine because we are cut into the top of a hill. We just get a waterfall going from the back steps down the side of the house and out onto the road.

I have a mountain of housework to do today. Yesterday I caught the ironing up. Then - paperwork......

Bug has this week and part of next week left of school for the year. He will go back in February and it will be his last year. Yay!

I had a long and quite busy weekend. A bit of drama, but we seem past that now. Life is busy as always. Cannot wait for it to slow down a bit!

Hi Girls,

good weekend here tho cold and rainy!

Caesar lost 2 bottom baby fangs, poor lil guppy, his face was a bit swollen and he was chewing on everything and everyone! he is better now and the new ones are already showing. funny how they are so "baby like"!

he woke me this morning sitting by my head making this chirping noise, wanting me to know there was a HUGE palmetto bug on the ceiling! OMG, i hate them darn things!! spiders and snakes i can handle but these things are freaky weird creepy crawly gross
prehistoric creatures! it was quite a bug hunt that followed knocking it off the ceiling, ending with extra treats for the mighty hunter, lol

walmart has turkeys for 47c a pound, so i grabbed one for Thursday. we will be deep frying it. i always cut the legs and wings off and bake them tho, as deep fry makes them way to crunchy to eat, lol..........

we dont really have alot planned for the week, i need to get busy on my Christmas cards...i am soo behind this yr!!

Morning Girls

I got my paperwork up to date yesterday. Hooray!!

I am off to have morning tea with a friend this morning. She has an almost one year old so it should be fun. House is clean and the ironing is up to date. I have to clean out the beer fridge before Browny gets home next. Something leaked and there is stuff all over the bottom. I have the stuff for the laqst of my Christmas cards ordered, so they should all be done by Monday. We are not giving gifts to our families this year - except for the kids. I bought a new tree for this year. I have bought both the boys a GPS and wrapped it to put under the tree. I need to get them a few little things. I have made Jaxson, from next door, a library bag, as he goes to school next year. I need to fill it with a few things. I have a few friends that we buy for, but the tree is going to look really empty this year. A bit sad, but lovely too! I am making up for the lack of gift buying/making by making really exciting cards though.

Hi ladies.

Yay for you Kerriann, glad you got caught up on your paperwork.
This past weekend was not as busy as the last few, had the girls Friday night and all day Saturday, got to watch a marathon of the Mickey Mouse clubhouse on Nick Jr. Can I say that the theme song was stuck in my head most of Sunday and Monday...
I'm so glad I only have one more day of work this week, I'm going to enjoy having Friday off. Drawback is cramming a week of work into 3 days. {bleh}

Hope everyone is doing well and enjoy the rest of your week.

Hi everyone!
Kerriann, we won't have a lot of gifts under the tree this year either, but that's ok. We will all be together celebrating for the right reason!
Christmas cards...I still have 24 to make. One set is ready to go just need to stamp the image and assemble. One set of 12 still has to be thought about and made. I will get it done though!
Holly, I am glad Caesar is doing well! We never found any of Midnight's or Cheyenne's teeth when they lost them.
Cheyenne has been having some anxiety issues again. Not sure what we can do. The supplement she was on doesn't seem to be as effective anymore. They said I can increase it, but sheesh, that would be $52 a month for that. Time to do more research I guess.

Hi All,

I woke up early again this morning - before 6! I just have the doona cover and the sheets on the bed at the moment - no doona or blanket. I sweat a lot during the night, so it is fine. The problem I am having (I think) is that I sweat a lot and then get cold and wake up. Have to think on this one - more blankets mean more sweats, etc, etc. etc......

Brayden's last day of 'real' school today. Three days of exams after this and he is done for the year.

So, I have been at my feet with a vengeance this last week. They wee dry and yucky. I know have lovely soft, smooth feet - that slip out of my shoes! Bizarre

we cut way back on Christmas ourselves a few years ago, it just got to be too much, and really, it wasnt so fun with all the stress that goes with it!

i even cut back on cards, and, there are several on our list who get store bought cards simply because they "poo-poo" my hobby! HA.....no nice cards for grinches!

and one year, i built lasagna for dinner because we were tired of turkeys and hams, and well, because we wanted it, lol...........and another year we did subs,wings, chips etc etc, also was nice.

isnt it kinda sad once we lose the magic of Christmas when we become adults?!!! oh to be 5 again

There have been years that I have done lasagna for Thanksgiving actually! If we have the boys I definitely make mac & cheese.

This year's menu: turkey, stuffing & gravy, butternut squash, carrots, beer bread, cheesy potato casserole & pumpkin pecan crunch with cool whip for dessert. There should be plenty of leftovers unless my brother and his girlfriend decide to come over. Either way is fine.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Hi all,

Happy Thanksgiving to you all.

I think it is going to be hot today. It is clammy already and it is only 7am.
Nothing exciting hqappening here. Bug starts exams today. Mitchell moves out over the weekend - apparently...... I have some washing to do. I need to get out into the garden, but it has been too hot. I am going to a day of craft on Sunday. We qare making Christmas embellishments. I know what two of them look like but the rest is a mystery.

Good Morning!

Vikkijo, how is Clint's dad doing since his surgery on the 15th?

I'm really starting to feel like my energry level is finally coming back up. Been having to take both claritin and sudafed to get rid of the cause of my cough. Even clipped my cocker spaniel yesterday, poor Maddie looked like a walking dustmop. Now to give her a bath today and get John to give Pharaoh {lab mix about 90 lbs & a big boy} one too. Am hoping to get my tree out and set up today, but will see if there are enough hours to get that done as well. Almost caught up on laundry, just a couple more loads and I'm temporarily done... LOL!

Hope everyone is doing well and if you were one of the shoppers in the last few days searching for the perfect deal, hope you got the ones you were looking for.

Everyone have a wonderful Sunday and great week.
