Some Days You Just NEED a Good Laugh!!!

Ever have one of those days, when a laugh would do you a lot of good? Having one of those today. My sister sends the the funniest emails, so I thought I would share some of my favorites with you all today. Not sharing the dirty ones although they are quite funny, like the AARP swimsuit edition. This is for all you ladies who have a partner in your life.

I  turned to her and said ,"Do you want to have sex"?

"No," she answered.

I then said, "Is that your final answer?"

She didn't even look at me this time, simply saying, "Yes."

So I said, "Then I'd like to phone a friend."

And then the fight started....                
My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary. She said, 'I want
something shiny that goes from 0 to 150 in about 3 seconds.'

I bought her a bathroom scale.

And then the fight started...
I  took my wife to a restaurant. The waiter, for some reason took my order first. "I'll have the steak, medium rare please."

He said, "Aren't you worried about the mad cow?""

Nah , she can order for herself."

And then the fight started..
A woman was standing nude, looking in the bedroom mirror. She was not happy with what she saw and said to her husband, "I feel horrible; I look old, fat and ugly. I really need you to pay me a compliment."               

The husband replied, 'Your eyesight's damn near perfect.'                                

Hope at least one of these brought a smile to your face today!

Satuday Breakfast with the Folks

Every Saturday morning my parents come over to have breakfast with my son and I. My Dad is the cook in his household, so it's the only day someone else cooks for him, so we all enjoy it. Usually we have cinnamon raisin french toast, bacon, fresh fruit, coffee, etc. This past Saturday my parents came over carrying a brown paper bag and said,  "we have a surprise for you". I thought whooo hoooo! Everybody likes a surprise, right? Then my Dad says, "I think Daniel (my son) should open it" and then whispered "he's not gonna like it". My son Daniel is 28 years old and has Down's Syndrome, and he can do and say some pretty creative things. So, he opens the bag and immediately looks at me. Ya see, inside the bag was 4 large empty jars of Alfredo sauce...I'm thinking WTH? My son likes to eat lunch with "his old friend,"  my Dad. It seems this past week, when he went to eat lunch, he immediately ran into the bathroom, saying "I gotta go".  My parents have a small pantry in the bathroom. It seems  he would quick run in to get a snack. He actually drank the jars of the thick,  rich, white sauce. Then my Dad said, he also ate a large can of french onion dip and 2 cans of jalepino dip. After he was done, he put the empty jars and cans back in the pantry. BUSTED!!! Now I know how he gained a pound on his diet. Isn't life an adventure that keeps on giving???

NewThings to Come

First of all, I'd like to extend my thoughts to all of you who have been affected by Mother Natures' recent tirades. The devastation has certainly been widespread. From fires, to earthquakes and tropical weather with tornadoes.  After all the rain finally finished here, beautiful cooler weather has moved in, a sign of much needed renewal and new things to come.
I am always on the search for new items to add to my shop. This past week I found some beautiful new treasures. So in the next couple of weeks, new things will start appearing in my shop. Feedback is always welcome and appreciated when constructive and respectful. My blog was supposed to be about my new shop direction and it kinda got hijacked. Thanks to all of you who have kept me in your thoughts as well.  NEW THINGS TO COME!!!
