This Explains A Lot!

Mostly I've felt like I've tried to be a good influence on my family with reasonable control of everything. But I've also always had this, oh I don't know, this funny feeling that something or someone was trying to undermine my authority. I was going through my pictures last night and picking out my favorites of 2007 to place into a separate folder. I saw something in the window behind me in this large photo. After cropping and bring everything forward this is what I found.

Mel Brookes once said "It's good to be the king." I'm not so sure.

Cliff, I think that this is an hysterical picture! It should feel good to be king, especially if you have a bunch of "Jesters" to keep the laughter comming! I would definately put this one in the favorites folder,it deserves a place on its own! Thanks for stopping by, the words of encouragement went a long, long way this morning.

I thought we talked about this before - maybe not. Being king is NOT the same as being in charge.

That's an awesome!

I got your email, but when I tried to reply I got a "permanent failure" auto response. I thought that was a little harsh...

~~{* *} ~~ Cliffers, thank you for such a lovely comment. I'm very happy Marilyn still loves the jewelry I designed especially for her 2 Christmases ago!

She deserves to reign as queen.
If this was my husband, I'd probably tease and say "King of Farts?" (Our humor runs the gamut of childlike to ...well this is a family blog!)

Now this photo eclipses Edward Munch's "The Scream" painting! You guys are a hoot.

And I always figured Marilyn was the straight man in this comedy team. Now, I'm not so sure.

Sleep with one eye open, Cliff!

HA,,, I love that...

I'd say it's gooood to be the queen!!
And I think Marilyn would agree.
Kings think they're in charge.
The queen actually rules the roost, but whenever anything goes wrong, the king gets the blame.
It's how God meant it to be.
You don't wanna mess with God, do you?

LOVE it!!!!!
:-)

I thought I had it bad when I got an unexpected cow out the window of my picture.

But I think yours takes the cake.

Also, your Thanksgiving post was great.

Cliff,


I LOVE that picture!

I'm sure this act was not meant to undermine your authority in any way!

I think you really have her in prison and she wants out. This is a cry for help.

That would be a great photo if it wasn't for the old guy in the yellow shirt spoiling it.

Hi Cliff -- You look pretty serious there, where is your king hat?
That person at the door doesn't look very serious to me, I wouldn't worry about your kingdom, she supports it.
You COULD nominate her as your court jester.
