What's in the bag? Well I'm glad you asked. it's a ....
Picked this puppy up for $8.00.
Lets see if it works....
who should I try my new flobee on?

Well, Everett seemed pretty eager, so he went first. I won't post the pictures of him screaming his head off. I mean, he loved it.
It sucks as it cuts!!
or at least it sucks as you possibly rip the hair out by the roots. I don't know exactly because there's no way I'd ever try this on myself!

So, all in all, it did a really good job and there wasn't even 1 single hair that i needed to clean up. that was the best part. no, wait, i think listening to my kids scream in complete and utter terror was the best part.

I think the flowbee is the reason the expression "redneck" actually originated.

I will use it again. Definately.
Saw this truck on the road a couple days ago. You should be able to click on it to enlarge and read what this guy had on the back of his truck.

Ok, so this isn't a good example of a contest entry. But it was funny, and I thought I'd share. You may be wondering to yourself "what contest? Cher's having another contest?? how do I enter?". Well, just click on this Link: and go charge your batteries and dust off your lenses! Click click click...

How to have a free babysitter.... AND ... A NEW CONTEST!! Wow!

My friends came over last week and we just needed sometime alone. I thought this was brilliant! Thank you Joey for burying my kids up to thier armpits in sand. You can come over and occupy them anytime!!! It's good that you do. (PS, thankyou Joey and Allan for the hugs yesterday. I think you know how needed they were.)

Oh, wait, I'll be back in a second. I think they might still be out there!

Well, that was a relief. They were still there and fine. REALLY happy to see me though!

It's been so long since I've had a contest, that I feel the time has come once again. This contest is a little something Rob and I do to occupy our time when we are driving... we try and find one of those real head turners when we are driving. You know when you see a car, and then you see the driver and you are like, Ferreal? THAT person is driving THAT?? It just doesn't fit. It's distracting. So, what do i do in cases like this? you guessed it... take a picture!!

So, here are the rules. It cannot be a computer generated photo (Although i will possibly have to have a seperate creativity prize if someone was to actually bother). Now I know you are all very observant people. I know that you have digital cameras, (well except Phats, but he's too busy sending me bribes to buy my funnybone.) *phats you may have to beg borrow or steal... or just get someone to take a picture of you in your car*
OK, so a photo like this won't cut it. this is just a funny bumpersticker. it was especially funny when the woman that got out of the car was about 83 years old. however, no shot of her... no go. doesn't count. you could be making it up. keep in mind i'm veeeery skeptical and have a professional lab downstairs where i will be authenticating the authenticity of each and every entry.

Here again, same thing. I'm taking the time to really stress this. although this was extremely funny to me that an old man got into this car, (you may remeber the inside of his car in a post from a couple days ago. It had the chain and pad lock on the steering wheel...) but, again, i wasn't quick enough. you've got to be quick if you want to win people. I suggest keeping your camera/phone on at all times because you just never know. Maybe pack some spare batteries, just incase.
Here's a tip-be prepared in parking lots too...although, you may want to be prepared with back up if you aren't as sneaky as i am when i am out and about around town taking pictures of people and exploiting them.

Now this is what I'm talking about. This is the money shot right here. Just doesn't suit it. AT all. GOTTA love the 10 and 2 action. It's the kind of car/driver distraction that makes me wonder if that light was really green or not and looking in my rearview mirror I normally breathe a sigh of relief because the car behind me went through it too. who know's. maybe they were distracted as well...

ok, so. Game on. winner gets an autographed picture of me, and added to my cell phone so you can recieve weird random text messages at all hours of the night. T.Leach, I thought this little side bonus of the text messages would really tweek your interest. you can have no idea what i'm talking about on your phone too! sweet action right there dude.

So email your enteries in to me at
by july 1 2007 by midnight my time. (if you don't know what time that is, then you are in the same boat as me)
Game on!
All welcome!

any facebook people out there that haven't sought me out yet? search for cher sherwood. i am there. having a lot of fun i might add. i've been busy trying to keep up with all my fanmail on top of blogging, but i'm just that good.

Where oh where did T.Leech go? where oh where could he be????
If he's still out there in blog land, please tell him to come visit me now and then. I'm thinking of a new contest. And I know that should excite you all, because I give out the best prizes.

Random photos and thoughts (CLICK ON PHOTOS TO ENLARGE)

this is the weirdest car interior i've ever seen.
an old man got into it. he was about 80. he has a chain with a pad lock on his steering wheel.

Barbie. What a whore. Why does she get a VW van and I don't. Damn her and her matching shoes

is it just me or does this one kid seem pretty happy to be being strangled?

My sweet little man giving me some love in the grocery store a couple days ago.

I'm bored today. I've had a few people go to my blog lately that are new friends. yes, that's right, I have some new friends (who, by the way I am enjoying getting to know very much) So, out of boredom, or probably more accurately, out of procrastination: I decided to go back into my archives to the very beginning of my blog...which is a little frustrating because you have to start at the bottom of the page and work it can be somewhat confusing. even for me. and i typed it.

SO ANYWAY... I started going from the beginning to present and decided that i'm freaking funny. Like really funny. Tell your friends kinda funny. It took me a bit to get in the groove of the whole blog thing. I tended to post too much about my kids in the beginning. And the first while I tended to be a bit long winded. But some of it I had completely forgotten about. like this post about this website i found. i checked it out again today and was not at all surprised to see it is still up and running. looks like they have a good following too. you can buy stuff. check it out

Life IS good around a bonfire....even the next day the smell still lingers...

So right now it is 2:06 AM and I just spent all night outside in my back yard, around or near or stoking my firepit as I hung out and drank a few beers... I had a great night. ALONE. Thankyou phats and Stonelifter for keeping me company on msn ((and a big shout out to my peeps on face book ;) lately.)) Soooo why am I rambling like this you may ask? Oh ya, I know... because I was hanging out by myself. Which in itself, I have no problem with. I genuinely LOVE my own company.... well, I more specifically love my self almost exclusively. Life is good around me people. How about some of you come for a visit and keep an old and moldy, obssesive compulsive like me company once in awhile hey? Oh and wait till you see what I have in store for my backyard. I think it could be revolutionary.

But I must warn you, sitting on this kitchen chair and lifting heavy things is hard on my back. I wish blogger offered medical. Then maybe I could justify some massage therapy under bc medical or something.

Oh and before I forget, I got a new bed. Well, more than GOT a new bed really. More like imagined and made it happen kinda thing. What can I say? I'm a dooer. In fact, now I think I kind of have to redo my whole bedroom. I whittled it in my spare time. What do you think?

How irritating. Because I haven't blogged in ages, there are a few changes I'm not familiar with. So I tried to fix the fact that my photo is gone and my title. Well, I got back the title, but not the photo and I actually lost all kinds of things I had modified on it. Everybody's links...GONE! I'm frustrated. I am going away for the weekend to visit my family. Maybe when I get back I will have more patience for this.

Hello from the land of snot

(Can anyone help me? What happened to the top part of my blog?)

some phtos to catch you up on how big the kids are doing.
Everett turned 1 on March 15th and Crofton is now 2. I can't believe how fast they are growing.
going to the park in the wagon!

A post wouldn't be a post from me unless I showed you some weird thing i saw somewhere. These crazy bingo dabbers were in a dollar store by my house. My friend Allan says it's not weird that they were in a dollar store at all. I dunno. I think its really weird to call bingo dabbers "oh shit". Maybe its just me.
two photos of crofton that I love.

So Rob left this morning for 17 days. He's travelling to Toronto. I guess that means I'll have some time to catch up on the world of blogging. I joined facebook (search for Cher Sherwood) a couple days ago. I'd love to catch up with you all through there too. It's a cool site. I am just figuring it all out though. I was chatting with a friend of mine I haven't seen in years this morning, Shelby. It was so awesome to get in touch with her.

Haven't done much of anything with my car lately. It's only getting warm enough lately to even be in the garage. I could use someone to come hang out with me in there and get me re-motivated again!
