Note to self: no whining, no slacking
Egghead update
Getting ready to take Evan, my nine year old, to school the other morning...

Me: Come on buddy, we gotta go!
Evan: (With open book in hand) Daaaad, I'm looking for something to use as a bookmark.
Me: You used to have a bunch of bookmarks around here, did you lose all of them?
Evan: (With expression as if talking to a dolt) I'm using all of them. (Helloooooo?)

When I was nine, I doubt if I even had any bookmarks, much less knew what their purpose was!

One of my Mom's favorite stories about me was coming into my bedroom and seeing about four volumes of my encyclopedia open on the bed...when she asked me why they were open, I replied "I ran out of bookmarks"

Apparently, I had a Serious Problem to solve, and it was all over the alphabet.

I keep all those little annoying sign up thingies that flal out of magasinzes for bookmarks. Maybe the boy could use those if y'all kept em?

Re: Dinosaur Stamp Bookmarkies!

Ooooo! That would be the coolest! Yes, dinosaurs, or ANY animals, real or mythical. I'll e-mail my address to you. Thanks!
