Damned if I can remember but that might be who taught me the song, all I know is I hate cold water or anything cold touching me, and I potty trained early. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v =Vtq1XV6ZVOcXX

My son potty trained himself by using fruit loops as targets. Lol

That is how my mother told me to train my son. Works like a charm. Just don't try it with girls. They end up turning around to see the fruit loop, or falling head over heals trying to see the fruit loop.....

I know you enjoyed your cabin, Pickwick's got some gorgeous places. I been a couple of times with friends on fishing trips, it's been a while now though. I think that's up close to Shiloh Military Park, am I right? That was always a favorite place for my kids.

I'm going to have to shut this thing off and get some sleep eye. Nice talking with you, and you too Glinda and everybody. Good night, hope everybody has a great day tomorrow.

That's where a good rope to tie them to the toilet and feeding them less works really well. Now before you say anything, think of it this way, the girl is going to want to be skinny when she grows up anyways, right?!? And making her stay in the bathroom, well, that is second nature also. So your only working with what nature gave you.

My new wife's three sons used cheerios for target practice. Years back while going into a public restaurant, I noticed cheerios in the toilet. My thought was "What nut poured cheerios in the toilet?" It wasn't until she told me how she potty trained them, that I realized I had just come out of a classroom. ;)

Food for thought:
Her Name is Rose

The first day of school our professor
introduced himself and challenged us to get to know someone we didn't already know. I stood up to look around when a gentle hand touched my shoulder.
I turned around to find a wrinkled, little old lady beaming up at me with a
smile that lit up her entire being.
She said,'Hi handsome. My name is
Rose. I'm eighty-seven years old. Can I
give you a hug?' I laughed and enthusiastically responded,'Of course you may!'and she gave me a giant squeeze.'Why are you in college at such a young, innocent age?' I asked. She jokingly replied,'I'm here to meet a rich husband, get married, and have a couple of kids...''No seriously,' I asked. I was curious what may have motivated her to be taking on this challenge at her age.'I always dreamed of having a college education and now I'm getting one!'she told me. After class we walked to the student union building and shared a chocolate
milkshake. We became instant friends.

Every day for the next three months we would leave class together and talk nonstop. I was always mesmerized listening to this 'time machine' as she shared her wisdom and experience with me. Over the course of the year, Rose became a campus icon and she easily made
friends wherever she went. She loved to
dress up and she reveled in the attention bestowed upon her from the other students. She was living it up.

At the end of the semester we invited Rose to speak at our football banquet. I'll never forget what she taught us. She was introduced and stepped up to the podium. As she began to deliver her prepared speech, she dropped her three by five cards on the floor. Frustrated and a little embarrassed she leaned into the microphone and simply said,'I'm sorry I'm so jittery. I gave up beer for Lent and this whiskey is killing me! I'll never get my speech back in order so let me just tell you what I know.'As we laughed she cleared her throat and
began,'We do not stop playing because we are old; we grow old because we stop playing. There are only four secrets to staying young, being happy, and achieving success. You have to laugh and find humor every day. You've got to have a dream. When you lose your dreams, you die. We have so many people walking around who are dead and don't even know it! There is a huge difference between growing older and growing up. If you are nineteen years old and lie in bed for one full year and don't do one productive thing, you will turn twenty
years old. If I am eighty-seven years old and stay in bed for a year and never do anything I will turn eighty-eight.
Anybody can grow older. That doesn't take any talent or ability. The idea is to grow up by always finding opportunity in change. Have no regrets. The elderly usually don't have regrets for what we did, but rather for things we did not do. The only people who fear death are those with regrets.' She concluded her speech by courageously singing 'The Rose.'

She challenged each of us to study the
lyrics and live them out in our daily lives. At the year's end Rose finished the college degree she had begun all those years ago. One week after graduation Rose died peacefully in her sleep. Over two thousand college students attended her funeral in tribute to the wonderful woman who taught by example that it's never too late to be all you can possibly be.

When you finish reading this, please send this peaceful word of advice to
your friends and family, they'll really enjoy it!

These words have been passed along in
loving memory of ROSE.

REMEMBER, GROWING OLDER IS MANDATORY.
GROWING UP IS OPTIONAL. We make a
Living by what we get. We make a Life by what we give.

God promises a safe landing, not a calm
passage.

If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it.

Simply beautiful and totally correct! Yay Rose for living her dreams! Thanks for sharing that inspiration with us!
