Dam? Whaaat?

In honor of the wonderful Mr. Art Linkletter, who passed away today at the age of 92, I give you my own version of "Kids Say the Darndest Things".

While watching a fast moving action movie tonight [is there any other kind?] the scene suddenly changed over to show a long shot of a massive dam.

Wallene became quite animated and said "I know that, I know that. That's Amster Dam!!"

[Skippy trying not to laugh.]

Mom's response? "Um, don't you mean Hoover Dam?"

Giggling Wallene replied "Uh, yeah Mom. I just knew that wasn't right the minute it slipped out."

Mom -"Pretty much girlie. Besides I don't think the Netherlands would appreciate us naming one of our dams after their capital city. Do you?"

Wallene - "Nah. I don't think so. But, .... uh, Mom? Are you going to blog about this?"

Mom - "What do you think?"

Kids. Can't live with them. Can't blog without them. ;D

That is too funny!! I am so glad to hear that even when kids get older, they still say entertaining things.

That is way cute. LOL.
Btw do you think Wallene will blog about funny/cute/doofus things Skippy says? I hope so... *smile*

Thank goodness I had swallowed my sip of coffee BEFORE I read this post. Amster Dam.

Can you imagine what Wallene would have come up with if she had been on the Art Linkletter Show? Shudder!
