3 Barge Men

Happy Monday beloved readers. Here is a funny little post for your Monday reading pleasure.



Sometimes when I'm falling asleep songs come into my head like this:


(Sung to the tune of 3 blind mice)

3 Barge Men
3 Barge Men
See how they work
See how they work

They all go out to The Trader, The Jessie, The Rock star

They work their asses off from a far

They never thought they would work so hard

As three barge men.


Would you like to know why that little diddy came into my noggin last night?
 First, You should know there is a song for everything in my world, and everything is a song.
It is not uncommon in conversation for me to bust out in song.
Most things in life remind of songs, and well life is just better when lived out in song.
I come by this trait genetically. Ask Ellen the song master.
But Do you not agree, life is better with song?

Also, and here's the really fun part...
I live with 3 barge men.
My Giant, his cousin Derek, and our buddy Dan.
They are the 3 barge men.


Yes, I  live in 800 sq ft with 8 people.
My fab 4.
3 Barge Men.
3 dogs.
And Me.
And yes, 8 is enough!
And no, I'm not going crazy!
And yes there is a rhyme, there is a reason
And no, I'm not going to sing "To everything turn, turn, turn"

Don't be too concerned, they are all also master builders and are working on their own spaces even as we speak or wait... even as I type and you read. Or what eva !

But until then, when they walk through my doorway, smelly, dirty, and hungry I will be singing...

3 Barge Men...
3 Barge Men
See how they eat
See how they eat
They eat so fast, no time to digest
They clean their plates and leave no mess
YOU've never seen such sight in your life

As 3 Barge Men ;)

I make myself giggle.

This is really funny Noel :)
Sometimes you really have to find the humor in life and smile for the simplest things.
I tend to find myself changing the words to songs my kids know or adding to it.
This afternoon while driving home I was singing 'How much is that Doggy in the window'... and then I went to cat... horse... pig... cow ... you get the idea just to keep them entertained.
Talk to you soon.

They are working their donkeys off. Those three and one is an excellent cook.Ellen always has a song for every dangling conversation. Ellen is crazy!It is against her rules to say stupid or dumb, retarded, or gay or shut up. She did not make these rules but learn't them from a brilliant Lady friend. There are so many rude words in the English lanquage. Oh well, I am going to shut the front door if who get the meaning. Absolutely wonderful blog Hotel.
