This happened to me once. A girl I took to a dance once was a classmate of mine in grade school. Her father wanted to talk to me while he was cleaning his guns. It didn't help that he was one of former Cook County Sheriff Jim O'Grady's top deputies either.

Getting Away, Boy your daughter should be commended for her attitude. What a wonderful person she must be.

Armo, stop and look at those cute little faces and buy a box it won't kill you. One day hopefully you'll have a cute little girl yourself who will want to sell her share of cookies to support her troope so do your part and buy a box and stuff them in your mouth and enjoy! You know you'll like em! And that little girl will look up at you with adoring eyes and think what a wonderful person you are to help her.
I agree with you on the tele-marketers thou.

I had one guy call today to get me to listen to a sells speach. After 4 minutes of rambling I asked him exactly what was he selling? I still didn't get a direct answer. I told him to keep paying for his electric bill and I'd keep using mine. (which was what he was selling) to bust up corporations by small company's selling electricity.
He said don't you want to bust up monopoly company's? I said Oh yea, really helped with Ma Bell didn't it? At which I hung up. I'm not sure the kid got I was being sarcastic at first. Anyway It's annoying that he can't even tell me what he's selling for the first 5 minutes of the phone call. That's annoying the rambeling chatter with no point. I don't usually give them 5 minutes more like 5 seconds.

Don't forget Armo, get those cookies! They stay fresh in the freezer for a year but I've never had a box last more than 3 hours...

Annabelle, that's what caller ID is for. wink.gif I never anything that says "Out of Area" or "Unknown". I just let it go to voice mail. They never leave a message.

Makes 108 cookies.  Reduce the recipe by baking only 1/3 of the cookie dough for the wafers and then reducing the coating ingredients by 1/3, to give you a total of 36 cookies.

Chocolate Cookie Wafers
1 18.25-ounce package Betty Crocker chocolate fudge cake mix
3 tablespoons shortening, melted
1/2 cup cake flour, measured then sifted
1 egg
3 tablespoons water
Non-stick cooking spray

Coating
3 12-ounce bags semi-sweet chocolate chips
3/4 teaspoon peppermint extract
6 tablespoons shortening 

1. Combine the cookie ingredients in a large bowl, adding the water a little bit at a time until the dough forms.  Cover and chill for 2 hours.
2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
3.  On a lightly floured surface, roll out a portion of the dough to just under 1/16 of an inch thick.  To cut, use a lid from a spice container with a 1 1/2-inch diameter (Schilling brand is good.)  Arrange the cut dough rounds on a cookie sheet that is sprayed with a light coating on non-stick spray.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Remove the wafers from the oven and cool completely.
4.  Combine chocolate chips with peppermint extract and shortening in a large microwave-safe glass or ceramic bowl.  Heat on 50 percent power for 2 minutes, stir gently, then heat for an addition minute.  Stir once again, and if chocolate is not a smooth consistency, continue to zap in microwave in 30-second intervals until smooth.
5.  Use a fork to dip each wafer in the chocolate, tap the fork on the edge of the bowl so that the excess chocolate runs off, and then place the cookies side-by-side on a wax paper - lined baking sheet.  Refrigerate until firm.

Oh My Gosh!! I thought you guys were supposed to stick together, but you all seem to draw that line when it comes to daughters.  laugh.gif  (Thank goodness.)

Dreamer1

There's a special relationship between fathers and daughters. Where my little girl is concerned, I can't be too careful or too protective. I can teach my boys to be careful and, if they make a mistake, do the right thing. I can try to teach my daughter that, but when her boyfriends are concerned, I can only hope his parents did the same. If she gets in trouble it affects her for the rest of her life, especially if her boyfriend bails.

And your assessment about us not drawing together about our daughters is not quite correct. I have to believe that any father who really loves his daughter understands and supports other fathers who feel the same.

tsargent,

I didn't mean that the way it sounded! I'm very glad you all are so protective of your daughters (my husband included!), and that you make a point of getting that message across to the boys who come "courting", it just amazes me to see the lengths that some fathers go to in making that point!

I'm sorry I wasn't clearer before. Us Moms all rely on you Dads for just such protectiveness!

I just read the post again and I see I misunderstood. You didn't mean we drew apart, just that we draw the line for our daughters' courters to cross. Or anyone else for that matter. Oh, yeah. Nobody messes with my baby!

Personally, I love to see fathers be protective of their daughters! Young people are subjected to so much today and so much pressure. Some one has to be in charge!

Honestly, it's tough to draw the line sometimes. I make wisecracks about what I might do should a suitor ever "cross the line", but I know I have to let her grow up someday. Someday I will. But not now!

Very Wise Words Peckery, now if we could all live like that we would be much better off. wink.gif

Did I actually say what I just thought I said? unsure.gif

How about neets? I used to keep them, but getting their foot oil was too much trouble.

What the *&%# is a neet anyway? And how do we get the oil from their feet? Why not otter foot oil, or oscelot foot oil or, I don't know, Peckery foot oil?

Otters are too hard to catch, peckery is a sock puppet (no feet) and an oscelot would tear the CRAP out of you if you tried! laugh.gif

How about Democrat foot oil? Yeah! Those greasy buggers should be a good source! Easy to catch, too. Just get them to stand in front of a bunch of union members with their back turned to camera and POW! biggrin.gif
