The other day I was teasing Colin about his upcoming Birthday.

Me- But what if we don't get you any Legos???

Colin- I will just buy some myself.

Me- Where will you get the money??

Colin- At the Dollar Store. Get it?? The DOLLAR Store???

Owl Pellets 6

I am telling Cailey and Colin about how owls don't digest everything they eat and so they puke up owl pellets.

Cailey- Well, that's violent.

Joshua had stepped into a mound of fire ants and was allll torn up. We gave him some Benadryl to try to help with the swelling and itching. Well, we decided to take a trip to Walmart while he was under the influence. On the way home we go to cross the railroad tracks.

Joshua -  Ho, ho!! And what is this????

Me- What is what???

Joshua- Oh, for a minute I thought you were going to drive down the tracks.

Me- No more Benadryl for YOU!!!

And my kids think I am weird and crazy. Apparently they had never heard the song "Greasy, Grimy Gopher Guts" before. I had to sing it for them! ROFLOL!

This is how we always knew it:

Great, big gobs of greasy, grimy gopher guts,

Chopped up parakeet,

Mutilated monkey's feet,

French fried eyeballs swimming in a pool of blood!

Oops! I forgot my spoon,

So they gave me a straaaaaw!!!

My kids were soooooo disgusted! ROFLOL!!

Do I have a story for you... Oh, my gosh!!!!!!!

Remember last month when Jacob and his friend Charles were visiting??? Remember when I took them back to the train station to go back to Virginia??? Well, here's the part I didn't tell you........

We got to the train station about 30 mins early, just in case (a little late I received a text saying that the train COULD be 2 hours late). The station building itself is decent size BUT there was only one teeny tiny room open at that time of night. Soooo, we went outside to wait.

As we walked out the door I noticed someone sleeping on the bench. No big deal. We just ignored them and talked to each other. BUT the boys were in high spirits and acting goofy (nothing new there) and it woke that person up.

Here's where it starts to get interesting.

This woman starts shooting us dirty looks. I figured she wasn't too happy about her nap being interrupted so I moved the boys down a ways.

THEN she TAKES OUT A KNIFE!! Yes, A KNIFE!!! It was in an empty soda bottle! She TAKES OUT THE KNIFE, brandishes it a bit and sets it on top of her luggage.


We move even further away from her and I ask the boys if they saw what I saw. Yep. She definitely has a big stinkin' knife!!!

While I am trying to decide what to do about all of this I hear a ginormous fart. I start fussing at Jacob thinking it was him. Nope. It was the woman. I heard it from SEVERAL feet away..... Then she bangs on the trashcan....


Ok.... I've had enough of the strange.... Let's walk to the OTHER SIDE of the train station and take some pictures in front of the pretty fountain and the heck away from the crazy woman.

She FOLLOWS  us!!!! Now only does she FOLLOW US but she has a big piece of wood in her hand!!!!


This is getting out of hand.

We then decide to go on the other side of the station and get the heck away from her. I go into the station and tell the waiting travelers exactly what is going on out there and if they know of anyone there that I can alert. Nope, no official from the train station is there. Time to call the police.

I call the police.

Now, we live in a TEENY TINY town. I can almost see the police station from the train station. It took 15 minutes for the officer to arrive.

I tell him everything that happened from the time we walked out the station door and saw the woman. He goes to talk to her.

He comes back a few minutes later. He says that the woman was scared because of Charles' backpack. Apparently where she is from, if your backpack makes a V on your back it means you are a murderer.


Sorry, but that doesn't add up. If you think someone is a MURDERER do you FOLLOW them??? Do you act in a threatening manner to them???? I don't think so!!!!

I told the officer in no uncertain terms that I did NOT want that woman on the train with boys. He assured me that she wasn't going to take that train. He says to just stay away from her. Ummm.. yeah... we have been TRYING to do that VERY thing....  I tell him that we are just going to sit in the van and wait.

The train FINALLLLLLLY shows up and I watch to make sure the woman doesn't get on it with the boys and then I high tail it home.

Just crazy. And it only goes to show how much we need some sort of mental heath reform in this country. I am in NO doubt that the woman was unstable and in need of mental health care. Scary.


  1. I think I need some benadryl, that's hysterical. But, oh my, that lady at the train station. Scary as hell. XO

  2. He is on the Benadryl again today. Not nearly as funny, though. LOL
    DEFINITELY!!!! Every time I drive by the station I look to make sure she isn't there! Creeped me OUT!!!!!

  3. I was just singing that song with my grandkids! Did you also sing "Comet - it Makes You Vomit"?
    Nutcase at the scary!

  4. OMGOSH!! I have never heard of that one!!! Googling!!!! LOL

    You really must do a better job of educating your kids...not knowing Greasy Grimy Gopher Guts...really! Please tell me that at least know Never Laugh When a Hearse Goes By...

    PS - I learned different words for

  6. OMGOSH, Tink!! I don't know that one either!!!
    More Googling!!!!!

  7. "Is this real life"
    That's TOTALLY what I thought about when you mentioned the Benadryl story! (in case you don't know what that is, you tube it. lol)

  8. GrammieGail aka TinkerPirateMarch 22, 2013 at 7:24 AM

    Then, what about...They're Coming to Take Me Away???

  9. LOL!!! Now adding YouTubing to the Googling!!!! :D

  10. THAT one they know!!!! LOL And I LOOOOOVE making them crazy with it!!! LOL

  11. This is great, Stacy! I have to admit, I have never heard the Gopher Guts song either....hmmmm...let's just say you must have had an interesting childhood....Now that crazy lady at the train station? Yeah, THAT is frikkin' scary!

  12. Interesting is saying the LEAST!! LOL ;)

    Yeah... SOOOOO glad I haven't seen her around anymore! Hoping she caught the next train out and stays away!!

  13. Hey, I loved the Gopher Song. I don't really think many of us paid attention to the words of MANY of the songs we sang way back when.
    Can I just tell you that I will now always check that my children's backpacks don't make "Vs"? I would have been so scared. I hope the police man took the time to take the wood and knife away from her!

  14. It was just nuts! The officer just told her to stay away from us. :/ I was NOT thrilled.

  15. Oh that lady is scary. To be coherent enough to make up that lie about the V on the bookbag makes her even more creepy. Im glad you called the cops!

  16. And the moral of this story is... If your kids don't know enough yucky kid songs, keep them out of train stations! Thanks for the great laugh!

  17. Yes!!! That's exactly what I thought!!
    I STILL can't believe they just left her there after all of that.

  18. Oh, I have some benadryl stories I could share! :-D And I also know all the words to "Greasy Grimey Gopher Guts!" This just reaffirms how cool we really are! :-D
