Monday miscellany*

One of our neighbors--the kind of guy who keeps a TV in his garage and watches NASCAR on it all weekend, and I think that says a lot about a person--has put up an Obama yard sign.


Jo learned this song at after-school care:

We will, we will
Rock you
Sock you
Flush you in the toilet
Hope that you enjoy it!

As well as:

Made you look, made you look, now you're in the baby book!

I confess I missed these two in my own upbringing.


We did our annual autumn pumpkin patch/agritainment excursion this weekend. The trees are gorgeous. Whenever I see beautiful fall leaves I always remember the banquet director from our wedding reception. Since our wedding was in the fall, he made sure to note that the dining room overlooked a wooded mountain, the better to showcase the fall foil-age.

*thanks to Leighann for the title

I can't tell if you like the neighbor or not!

Those are new songs to me too.

Rock you, sock you, eh? Good one.

At the reunion lunch, we sat with someone who was headed to a swing state to work the Obama campaign next week, and someone else who lives in a swing state and hosts out-of-state volunteers. I felt very inactive!

I am laughing at all three of these miscellany. NASCAR and Obama, indeed. You have to love it! And it's nice to hear that good rhymes and tunes are consistent throughout schools everywhere: my kids sing exactly the same two songs!

Who says kids don't learn a lot outside of school?

I love miscellany the best!

Rock you sock you - told my kids to please not chant that if I could hear them.

I don't even get that baby book one...what does that even mean?

Just goes to show that you never know. Most of the NASCAR fans I know (and I am not one of them) support McCain, so I can't blame you for assuming they'd follow suit. I've decided I like the fellow. Your neighbor, I mean.

I need to remember the MADE YOU LOOK song. I'll teach it tomorrow in kindergarten!!!

I totally missed those too!

Glad to hear your Nascar neighbor supports Obama.

We found a whole cul-de-sac full of Obama signs in our neighborhood. We need to move a few blocks over.

I cannot wait to hear rock you sock you in person. It's got to be better than Little Sally Walker.
