[Ex: Hurley’s “I Love my Shih tzu” shirt from LOST, the plantation home “Tara” from Gone With the Wind, or Tracy’s tambourine from the Partridge Family.]

If you obey all the rules you miss all the fun.  Katherine Hepburn

12. Name one thing that you do as a parent that you absolutely know will make your kids happy. If you’re not a parent, feel free to substitute “friend” or nomenclature that works for you.
I am not a parent but I am a teacher. Happy kids are kids who know they are respected and valued by the adults around them. Don’t talk down to kids. Treat them the way you would want to be treated. Kids are people, too.


  1. That is totally a good quote from Katharine Hepburn. I love it. But hey, I follow the rules most of the time, I try to balance things by disobeying just some, though. I don’t wanna live my life regretting!

  2. Ooh, I know what I’d want for #3 – one of those “Beam me up, Scotty” thingies from Star Trek! Not a prop, a real one – I would so love to be able to pop home for a visit whenever I wanted without the hassle and expense of international air travel.

  3. I wonder if some adults have ever been kids ! They seem to have all forgotten. Of course children are persons ! I used to wear the Roman sandals, when I was younger, now it’s too much work to put them on, lol !

  4. You know when your mate is your best friend when they can make you laugh so hard you could pee your pants! No other person can make me laugh as hard as FW!

    Love the KH quote and wonderful advice on no. 12. As a parent who is currently in the midst of parenting two hormonal teens, I have to constantly remind myself (and pray lot) to keep my cool. ;0)

  5. those sandals would look great on me some 25 years ago. not by any chance anymore…
    couldn’t agree more with your definition of spring

  6. I don’t watch Reality TV, but I can see the benefit of my being a contestant on The Biggest Loser. I can also see a lot of negatives about my being on that show… YIKES!!
