…Watch out for the Lamp!!!! Oops!!!
A few emailed me and said what's the story that Jacqui hinted at…so before Jacqui tells her version…here's mine.
One time years ago, and I mean years cause we still lived in Strathroy so that had to be like 80 or 81. Mum bought a coconut, and I can't even remember if Mum was there when this happened or if she was at work…seems we were always getting into trouble when Mum was at work… We wanted some coconut and I think we tried different ways to open it, but then I got out the hammer (Jacqui has a better memory and can fix anything that I have wrong…perhaps on her blog when she realizes the story is over here). So I hung onto the coconut and raised the hammer to crack open the coconut but instead I smashed the heck out of the lamp above the table, glass went everywhere, and scared the crap out of me I do remember that…oh and did I mention we were renting?…the house, NOT the coconut… Hmmmm…see that is not that exciting now that I told it…hmm…I'll have to do better next time. There was the time we got lost in the corn field, or we got stuck in Andy and Marion's garden in our rubber boots, or when I was throwing onions at Jacqui and the dog bit my butt….good times, I tell ya, good times!
So how about a fun scrapbook page, I did this one for my displays at Leadership, the beautiul little girl is Tatum, she is the daughter of a girlfriend of mine…thanks Karen for letting me post these.
Paper: Basic Black, Whisper White, Bella Birds DSP, Pink Pirouette
Misc: Paper Piercer, Black Marker
I love these pictures with Tatum and the Lassie dog, I know the name is not Lassie, but to me those dogs will always be Lassie…what's that Lassie? you found some lime in your coconut…egads!!!
I hope you enjoyed the cheesy story and the pretty page.
Oh and so I read the lyrics to that Lime and the Coconut song…I think they put more then lime in their coconut when they was writing that little ditty…I guess someone needs to make me understand what the heck it is about…
Have a great Tuesday, and thanks for stopping in!

OH MY DI! I knew when I saw the title to this post it was going to be a funny one! HAHAHAHA! And I agree, I think they had more than coconut milk when creating that song! Great Pages! I LOVE black and white, makes you look at the details!
Hoosier Hugs, Nicole
Wowzers..yeah um…I think you got the coconut story a tad bit wrong…..probably cause you don't want the authorities to come and drag you away for attempting to smash your loving little sister over the head with the hammer……oh yeah Mum was home…..and she was a little perturbed that you would want to strike your little sister with a hammer…what about the time we were making cookies and that man came to the door and wouldn't leave and we were hiding under the table cause we were scared and the cookies started smoking in the oven!!! Remember that!!!!!
Love your page and your sappy story!!!!!!…………….lol
