  1. Excellent! lol

    give my love to Kirst please.


  2. No wonder I have such small thumbs

  3. Some more trivia

    The skin is the body's largest organ.

    Women need more body fat to survive then men. ( which is also the reason for the higher heart rate )

    Your arm span fingertip to fingertip is your height.

    A man's attention span is Hey look a kitty.

  4. After reading this post and thinking very long hard about it I have come to a momentous decision.

    I'm going for thumb enhancement surgery.

  5. Hahaha! That's funny! LOL!

  6. Okay, that was just funny. It was also very informative. I'm going to remember some of those facts..maybe I'll seem smarter? Hhm?

  7. Sorry Sid - do your thumbs suddenly seem inadequate lol...
    My apologies for drawing your attention to this ahem..."relationship"

  8. For years I've heard. if he has big feet. or if he has big ears, or if he has a big nose. Somebody who looks like that had better be well hung because that is some weird looking dud.

    Maybe big thumbs could impress the ladies with something other than your ability to hitch hike.

    To be honest being single the last several years the most impressive thing I have done with the other body part is sign my name in the snow.

    But you have given me a whole new way to intimidate a tough guy by making a reference to thumbs and commenting I needed to have mine surgically reduced so the weren't longer than my fingers. ( guys will believe anything ) I once got caught in my zipper and needed 12 stitches so told everyone I'd had to have it reduced because I was passing out everytime I say a good looking woman. They all wanted to see the bandages. When they came off they wanted to see the scar to make sure I hadn't put the bandages on myself. 25 years later I still can't convince those guys that I had only got myself caught in my zipper.

  9. Lol hun I love it, Im glad Im not a guy right now!!!

  10. So, if I stretch my thumbs...

  11. Lol! More than I ever wanted to know!

  12. it seems Sid was stuck looking at his thumb, and i wonder if he ever finished reading this, hahaha!

  13. Heck I can't even find my thumbs

  14. HA! I have to admit, I was thinking thumbs...

  15. Someone just used an expression I will never be able to hear without laughing again. "Rule of Thumb". From now on I will think it means thinking with the little head.

  16. Brilliant post. Women do everything faster than a man don't they!!

    CJ xx

  17. Hmmm... I was still thinking about the thumb thing while I was half reading the rest of the post.
