My Father-In-Law Might Be Crazy


He sends us the strangest pictures ever since he got a digital camera. He lives out in Georgia (which is reason #1 for crazy) and recently went to a sheep farm with his lady-friend (we don’t call her girlfriend because she’s like 100 and it’s pretty obvious she’s not a “girl” anymore). You would think “Hey, Sheep farm. I’ll take pictures of Sheep doing…uh, Sheep things - Like riding tractors and racing the Chickens!”. But Nooooo! We get pictures of close-ups of grass, blurry pictures of the wood banisters, a fly on the windscreen, fur? It’s like handing a camera to a 4-year-old high on sugar and letting them loose.

I can see if these were “the test pictures” you know, the ones that don’t come out quite right and then you delete them. No, he uploads these to Snapfish and sends the family links to check out his great pictures, and then we all email each other saying stuff like “Huh?”.

I keep telling my wife we should be calling the police or Mr. T for intervention. I hear he has some new TV show where he tells you “You some kinda of Fool, Fool!”. Mr. T will make it right. And then children all over the world will be able to sleep at night once again.

I am the opposite on this one. My Father-In-Law is the only sane one in that entire herd, and is one of the head IT guys for a major paint producer that rhymes with merwin gilliams - so he generally knows a whole lot more that me about . . . well, everything really.

He is the one that I share my "Huh?" moments with about his wife and children.

We just talked about MR. T TODAY!!! I saw a video of him singing, "TREAT YOUR MOTHER RIGHT". It's hilarious and done years ago. Like it was a hit single !! (Sarcastic voice)

How funny! The old guy is totally clueless that his pictures suck! Hey, isn't that a sign of Alzheimers?!
