Paige, it's depressing. Lots of penalties. I turned it off and am going out to my garden. I can't take it anymore! LOL

No they don't have to be on blue paper. Any color is fine. They just have to have a winter theme, i.e. snowflakes, snowmen, etc.

Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us that sometimes the Boss WILL change his mind!


Uncle Leroy got a job down at the Broom Factory. On his first day the straw boss (Floor supervisor)calls ol' Leroy into his little office and says, "You the new man huh? What is yer name?"

Leroy replied "Leroy"

The straw boss says "I don't call anyone by first names. It breeds familiarity and that leads to breakdown in my Authority. I refer to all employees by last names; Now what is Your Last Name!"

Leroy sort of smiles and says, "Its Darling - Leroy Darling!

The Straw Boss said "Now Leroy the next thing........"

A young man had just graduated from Harvard and was so excited just thinking about his future. He gets into a taxi and the driver says, "How are you on this lovely day?"

"I'm the Class of 2001, just graduated from Harvard and I just can't wait to go out there and see what the world has in store for me."

The driver looks back to shake the young man's hand and says, "Congratulations, I'm Mitch Class of 1969."

Hello all!
It is a cool Fall day here. It froze last night. Yes, I have been waiting for the cool weather, but I just can't get warm. I should go work on cards, but don't know if I can bring myself to do it because I am so cold! LOL
Have a good evening!

An elderly man in Houston decided he’d had enough of his job and, as a subtle farewell, drove a bulldozer through the office at the auctioneer house where he had been employed. The damage costs estimate to about $1.5 million. Good thing he has a job to pay it o—never mind

I heard a radio person here talking about Talk Like a pirate day. He said he announced it some time ago, and ever since then he has gotten tee shirts and all sorts of stuff in the mail about it, and he has really not had any interest in it, but just keeps getting things from all over. He said he finally did some research and there is no real basis for it, or any occasion that would be notable on the date to have it, and he is just not sure what it is all about. But he said at the end of the spot "So in honor of the occasion for whatever it is worth, aaargh." And he was gone. I thought it was funny.

Oh, Roxanne, that was so sweet of you to do that. I read every word and think it is hilarious that you can just say "lets have a day for..." and it happens.
Thanks!

Good Morning Friends!

YAY! It’s Thursday…
soon we will be enjoying a weekend!


... ... ... ...


Today is Chicken Dance Day
Farm Safety Day,
National Punch Day,
and Gibberish Day.


On this nonsensical holiday (Gibberish Day), even the most articulate among us may utter
gobbledygook, gabble, babble and drivel.



Enjoy your holiday of choice today!




Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us to look at life through the eyes of child!


A woman was driving her old beat up car on the Highway with her 7 yr. old son, Little Johnny. She tried to keep up with traffic but they were flying by her. After getting caught in a large group of car's flying down the road she looked at her speedometer to see she was doing 15 miles over the speed limit.

Slowing down, she moved over to the side and got out of the clump that soon left her behind. She looked up and saw the flashing lights of a police car. Pulling over she waited for the officer to come up to her car. As he did he said, "Ma'am do you know why I pulled you over?"

Little Johnny piped up from the back seat, "I do! Because you couldn't catch the other cars!"

Good morning

My cards are finished, and will be going to the PO in a few minutes. Please let me know when they arrive.

(Marilyn - I didn't make the gravy card. It just didn't lend itself to winter and snowflakes. I am making it though, and will send you one when it's done. I have a great stamp for it and am looking forward to inking it!)

Good morning ladies!
I woke at 4 a.m. and couldn't get back to sleep. Went back to bed at 7:30 a.m. and just got up now. Such is the life when you get old....

Jeanette - don't you wonder about who comes up with some of these days??? Like Gibberish Day and Chicken Dance Day? Were they drinking or did they just have way too much time on their hands?

Joyce - I look forward to seeing your cards! I am sure they are fantastic!

Hello Laura!

They are easy to do and fun! I just learned how to do them in July, so I am certainly no professional. Look at ones in the gallery. That is what I did. That will give you ideas on how to do them.

I would love to have you and your daughters join!

What is the latest that we can join? I would love to do this, but am having eye surgery and don't know what my vision will be like. Also I would love to hear how everyone deals with longer recipes. Short of making my font a 5, I'm running out of ideas. I don't always have short recipes and I don't always like that the recipe takes up the whole page. I've made pockets to hold the recipe and an accordion fold recipe. I'd appreciate any ideas that you have.

Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us that there are some Dumb Crooks in the world!


The Apple Store alarm triggered at midnight, notifying the local police that the premises had been compromised. Police arriving at the scene discovered that a security gate at the front of the store had been destroyed, and there was substantial damage to the business. No suspects were found at the scene, so officers reviewed footage from the surveillance cameras.

In the video, a blue BMW X5 SUV can be seen crashing through the plate-glass window in the front of the store. Three suspects exited the vehicle and started to grab items from nearby display tables. While the hooded crooks grabbed the loot, the wheelman attempted to back out of the store, but quickly discovered a security gate had fallen down, blocking his path. Undeterred, the driver repeatedly smashed the back of the BMW into the gate until it finally gave way and the SUV was able to exit the business and drive away.

A clean getaway? No, far from it.

During one of the BMW's frenzied attempts to smash through the security gate, the vehicle's license plate was torn from the vehicle and was discovered among the broken glass and rubble. The BMW was also left crippled with two flat tires. The burglars managed to use a spare to change one, but the other remained an encumbrance. The solution? Why, a second theft, of course.

One of the men allegedly entered a nearby convenience store and stole a can of Fix-a-Flat. Unfortunately for the thieves, the damage to the tire proved to be too substantial for the liquid magic to do its thing. So, rather than limp the battered beast back to their hideout, the thieves abandoned it not far from the crime scene. The car, which once had a new dealer price of between $40,000 and $60,000, had "extensive damage," according to police.

And it gets worse, for at least one of the alleged crooks. While police were busy following up on leads in the case, they spotted a young man walking near the mall. As it turned out, he was the registered owner of the BMW. In fact, he had the keys to the vehicle in his pocket.
