When I washed his clothes I had to check his pockets for rocks. If I wasn't observant, some would end up in the vacuum cleaner. My understanding is, he did/does a lot of heavy thinking and daydreaming while throwing rocks.
    I'm not a squealer, but I do snap dead twigs or small dead sticks when I'm outside concentrating on a landscape design.

    I don't squeal/shriek/scream - I throw things at other things. None of my girlfriends are squealers either as I don't particularly enjoy the company of squealers, and all of us go about our business without having to have attention drawn to us. I will, however, actually say the word "squee" when I am particularly pleased by something adorable. Finley sitting in a box that's too small for him? Squeeeeeeee!!!

    Boys and sticks seem to be a natural connection, too. A co-worker of mine sent me home with a stick for my son, and that thing lived at the house for a couple of months. I remember him sitting on the steps, with a dangling string tied to one end of the stick, rocking back and forth saying, "I'm gonna catch me a CATfish!" The kitties were going wild! "lol

    He'd always store that stupid stick just outside one of the doors so that he could grab it when he went out.

    Sticks never appealed to me.

    I'm not a screamer, and my daughter isn't either, but boys and rocks? Yeah, got that one. I remember having to replace a window in our neighbors house because my youngest son threw a rock through it. When we asked him why he did it, he just gave this blank look and said, "I don't know." I was not pleased.

    I'm not a screamer and neither is my daughter. Now that she is an elementary school teacher I find it interesting that one of her very successful classroom management techniques is to get very quiet when the class is too loud. It works!!! They quiet down in order to hear her.

    If any of you fine folks in the cold regions of the world could send some freezing weather my way, I'd totally appreciate it. We haven't had an overnight freeze all winter (typically we have 4 to 6 freezing nights a winter), and the mosquitoes are back with a vengeance. I just took the dog out for a bathroom break and got four bites. It's freakin' February. I'll be dead from West Nile by the end of June at this rate.

    As regards the silly screaming, I don't do it, don't get it, and never will. If I have to think about the last time I exclaimed anything all *that* loudly, it was when the big tree branch took out a 4 foot section of my roof in a fast moving rain storm. I'd like to think that isn't terribly girly. I can't imagine guys would like the prospect of a ton of rain falling in their computer room either.

    Mosquitoes in February!? Yikes! PG, I'm in CA, but we're still dipping down towards freezing at night. I'd happily share some of that with you!

    We're expecting another foot of snow tomorrow night. Would you like some of that, too?
    Count your blessings!
