Betsy Bags The Big Man On Campus

“Mom, I bet you don’t know who Betsy Ross’s best friend was?”

“You’re right, Jay. I’m clueless. Was it Martha Washington?”

“Nope. Guess again.”

“How about Abigail Adams?”

“No way. Not even close.”

“Alright. I give up!”

“A lot of people don’t know this, but Betsy Ross and Benjamin Franklin were best friends. It’s true…they say she used to call him Benny.”

I found this on Wikipedia

January 1, 1752-January 30, 1836

    AH, Benny, couldn’t trust that man. People were always telling him to go fly a kite…..what a flirt.

    You can’t lay that last line on your kid. I’m sure- no, positive- it’s all you! I can just see ole Betsy now, draped seductively in one of the first versions of Old Glory. And Benny standing there, saluting the flag.


  5. These are too funny…
    I might have to wave a white flag before I choke on my beverage!

    Funny, you never know what they are going to say. I have two of my own.

    After they once destroyed a restaurant (spaghetti everywhere) the waiter asked me if I needed anything else. My comment back was a retroactive contraceptive.

    Best Wishes.


    • Welcome, Sweagraff!
      I’ve only just begun to enjoy dining out with the kids. For years, the experience was completely miserable. Always filled with spilled drinks, numerous trips to the bathroom, heart palpitations and lots of crying…theirs and mine. Glad to hear you get it.
      Thanks for reading. 🙂

    Are you sure you have the right Betsy? I am pretty sure that Betsy wasn’t anything to write home about 🙂


  11. John Erickson says:

    Okay, THAT explains why they always show fireworks and flags raising instead of a couple having sex. Gotcha!
    “Betsy Ross, good in bed.
    “Really good with needle and thread.
    “Really loved old Ben’s grey head.
    “Best of friends, now both dead.
    “Well, that’s what I heard on the bus!” he said. 😀


  12. Carrie says:

    My, my, my…some things never change.



  13. Karen says:

    Stars for states or “notches on a belt”? Hmmm.


  14. Sandi Ormsby says:
