Gravity and Grandsons

I read something about the planets being aligned just right and the gravity being such that a broom can stand up on end.   It did...and remained standing for over 3 hours until I put it away.

I think Roscoe was a little impressed....
...or wondering why there was a broom in his way.
Ole Boy said he would be a little more impressed 
if I got it to stand up on the opposite end.
I didn't even try.
Supposedly, you can do the same thing with an egg, but I tried several times and I couldn't get it to act interested in standing up on either side.   Gravity almost caused it to crash to the floor, but I saved it.  This summer (providing I remember) I'm going to try the broom trick again...

Eight year old Ashton was telling me all about his girlfriend last night.  One of the things he mentioned was that even though he hadn't told her he liked her, she knew it anyway, but she liked Devon (his nine year old brother).   I finally asked what her name was.   He paused a minute, then said, "Hey Devon, what's my girlfriend's name again?"


  1. LOL about forgetting the name of his girlfriend!! Too cute! How interesting with the broom, for three hours, that's pretty impressive! I'll have to try it sometime when the planets might be in alignment again! Hope you had a great day!


  2. how funny. so that's why katie had a pic of an egg posted!!

  3. That was so funny and your grandson is ADORABLE! sandie

  4. I might try the broom trick assuming I can find a broom anywhere around here. I never really liked Roseanne, but I did like her joke that she would vacuum when Sears made a riding model. I bet Roscoe really loves the vacuum...

  5. LOL re: the grandson! Although.....I think this same memory lapse sow up when they turn into husbands. It just morphs into things like where things they use every day is kept. Like bowls or socks or spare toilet paper. Really. Those things have been in the same spot for 30 years and they don't remember that? sigh.

    Gravity. :o! Tell me when that will work, I must do it for the grandkids!!!
