Grocery Shopping

Teenage boys can eat a LOT!! So can their friends!!
The first thing I thought of when I saw this picture was,
'Hey, that could be me coming home from the grocery!'

  7. there is hope at the end of the tunnel - my boys don't eat anywhere near as much as they did as teens.

    and just what is that poor man on the bike hauling? I hope it is styrofoam.

  8. How funny! I know what you mean. I raised a teenage boy that would literally eat anything that didn't bite back. There were never leftovers that made it through the night. :)

    But you gotta love those growing boys.

  11. You are just funny. I love you and your sense of humor! I only had daughters to feed no sons...but I tell you what,I had boys come visiting those girls and then I had to feed them too! LOL
    Now I have two grandsons...so although they do not eat much yet...I know I have something to look 'forward' to! ;)

  15. My daughter and her husband are visiting us from Cambodia and brought a funny picture book of things people pull or carry on moto bikes. The oddest one they ever saw was a nursing mom on the back and the dad driving the moto bike was texting. Yikes!

  30. HaHa!!! Now that is funny but yes, they can as my Mom would always say "eat us out of house and home."

    ReplyDelete
  31. Oh, Betsy, I surely hope your lads wouldn't eat THAT much, you'd break the bank trying to keep up.

  33. I remember those days when our sons seemed to have hollow legs...lots of milk shakes and midnight snacks! The photo makes me think of all the papers I will be bringing home to grade. We are going to a seven period day (6 classes)...and school does not dismiss until 4:00!! Less school days....longer hours...part of the plan to save money in Georgia! Lord, help us!

  34. High five on this Betsy! When the last of our 5 males flew the coop, our local Supermarket chain had a Trading Halt & a please explain by the Aust. Stock Exchange as to why their profits had nose-dived.
