Good Morning Friends!


Go WILD - have a Wonderful Wednesday!



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


Today is Balloons Around the World Day
Virus Appreciation Day,
National Caramel Custard Day,
National Poetry Day,
Family Television Day,
and German Unity Day.


Enjoy your holiday of choice today!



Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us that things aren’t always as they seem!


Once there was a millionaire who collected live alligators. He kept them in the pool in back of his mansion. The millionaire also had a beautiful single daughter.

One day the millionaire decides to throw a huge party, and during the party he announces: "My dear guests, I have a proposition to every man here. I will give one million dollars or my daughter to the man that can swim across this pool full of alligators and emerge unharmed!"

As soon as he finished his last word there was the sound of a large SPLASH! One guy was in the pool, swimming as fast as he could, and the crowd was cheering him on. Finally he made it to the other side unharmed.

The millionaire was impressed. He said "My boy that was incredible! Fantastic! I didn't think it could be done! Well I must keep my end of the bargain, so which do you want: my daughter or the one million dollars?

The guy says "Listen I don't want your money! And I don't want your daughter! I just want the goober who pushed me into that pool!

Good morning ladies!

I had my injection yesterday. I still had a little pain on the way home, but the doctor said the shot can take a couple of days to work, so I am hopeful.

Oh yes, there was one good thing that happened yesterday. I got to go to Crafts Direct for the very first time. What a wonderful place! So many pretty things to choose from! I bought 2 Copic Sketch markers (have never had them before and thought I would give them a try), 4 sheets of glitter paper (love the stuff!), pink Stickles (for Barb's glitter swap), and some embroidery floss. I am sure my DH was bored but I had a great time!

Enjoy your holiday of choice today!



Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us that Children Are Wise!


A little boy forgot his lines in a Sunday School presentation. His mother, sitting in the front row to prompt him, gestured and formed the words silently with her lips, but it didn't help. Her son's memory was blank.

Finally she leaned forward and whispered the cue, "I am the light of the world."

The child beamed and with great feeling and a loud, clear voice said, "My mother is the light of the world."




FYI - My two guys and I are going on a little trip.... so you won't see me here for a few days (the next Public Service Announcement will most likely be next Monday). I will miss you!


Hugs!!!

Good morning ladies!

I had a good day yesterday - no leg pain and I was on my feet a lot! Hope it is not just a fluke.

It's Virus Appreciation Day again? We didn't appreciate it enough yesterday? I like the animal day as I have 2 furry little creatures, hence my user name. I also like Cinnamon Roll Day and National Taco Day. Really love Toot Your Own Flute Day since I am learning how to play the flute!!!

Thanks Sybil! I am feeling better. I had a twinge of pain in the early afternoon but that was all.
It's cold here and windy! In the 30s right now. DH and I just went out and covered up the pumpkins.

I have been learning to use a new type of word processor since my computer was dead and ressurrected. I have worked and worked and have finally gotten both my recipes ready to print. What used to take me minutes took me an hour and a half.
I am too tired now to try to design my recipe cards. Maybe tomorrow........

So I finally got my computer back yesterday. Turns out I had two bad viruses on it. The guy who fixed told my DH that I got them from Facebook! Hmmm.... Now I suppose I should stay off of Facebook but I hate too.

I am glad your computer is fixed. I don't know what killed mine, Patrick said I just had a bad hard drive. It had been fixed many times but this last time it was hopeless. I am just thankful he saved all my good files and info. He put a new virus program on it and told me how to back up files etc. So hopefully now I can relax and enjoy it. Having to use new-looking stuff is messing with my mind though.

Hi Laura, Welcome to FL! It's a wonderful place to live, how do I know, I have lived in 23 different places in my long........life. The most favorite was the Atlanta area. Where did you move from? I see Roxanne asked the same question.

Enjoy your weekend with family!

Oh, i missed the post with Roxanne asking me - i'm sorry.

I'm married to a retired navy guy - so we've lived in lots of places....on both coasts. and after he got out we lived in Virginia Beach, and then lived in IL - and he got a temp job in atlanta. that place sure has a LOT of people driving!!!!!!!! <G> But we were living in Iowa before moving here.

and thank you ---- it is sooooooo much fun to be around most of our kids and all the grandkids!!!!

Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us that Children Are Wise!


A honeymoon couple is in the Watergate Hotel. The new bride is concerned and asked, "What if the place is still bugged?"

The groom says "Hmm... Good point. I'll look for a bug." He looks behind the drapes, behind the pictures, under the rug . . . "AHA!" he shouts! Sure enough, under the rug was a small disc shaped plate, with four screws. He gets his Swiss army knife, unscrews the screws, throws them and the plate out the window.

The next morning, the hotel manager asks the newlyweds "How was your room? How was the service? How was your stay at the Watergate Hotel?"

Curious, the groom says, "And why, sir, are you asking me all of these questions?"

The hotel manager says "Well, the room UNDER yours complained of the chandelier falling on them!"

Good evening all!

Laura - I bet you have lived in lots of interesting places! How fun!

Nikki - Hope you had a great time with you friend!

Jeanette - you are always so faithful! I appreciate that!

I have had a couple of hectic days. My mom and brother were here yesterday. We had dinner and then watched the MN Vikings play. BTW the Vikes are 4 and 1. Yeah! Today I worked until 5 p.m., then went to Bible study, then had a meeting at 8 p.m. Nice to be home I can tell you. Not so good news on my leg pain. I was pain free for 5 days and it came back today. I am really disgusted.

On that note, I will say goodbye and hope you all have a good Tuesday!

Sorry about your leg too, Roxanne. I know that cronic pain can really get to you. I have been dealing with a bad foot since February. But it could be worse, at least I can walk with a brace on it now. Hopefully your leg will get well.

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us that Children Are Curious!


A man took his son fishing one day. After a few hours in the boat with not much to do, the son started asking his father some questions. "How does the boat float?" he asked.

The man thought about the question for a moment, then said, "I don't really know, son."

"Well, how do fish breathe underwater?"

The man scratched his head. "I guess I don't know the answer to that one either."

"Why is the sky blue?" the boy persisted.

The father replied, "I really don't know, son."

The boy started to worry that his father was getting upset at all the questions. "Do you mind me asking questions, Dad?"

His father immediately reassured him. "No, of course not, son! If you don't ask questions, you'll never learn anything!"

Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us to find HUMOR in our day!


A class of High School Seniors was required to take a CPR course. They used the well known mannequin victim, Resusci-Annie, to practice. Typical of most models, this Resusci-Annie was only a torso, to allow for storage in a carrying case.

The class went off in groups to practice. As instructed, one of the classmates gently shook the doll and asked "Are you all right?" He then put his ear over the mannequin's mouth to listen for breathing.

Suddenly he turned to the instructor and exclaimed, "She said she can't feel her legs!"





BTW, the new color scheme of my post today means I've opened a new swap. I hope you like the colors I've chosen - I'll be using them for the next 4 months.


Hugs!!!

Hi all!
Just popping in to say a quick "hi". Life has been hectic around here so I haven't been on much, not that I didn't want to!
Off to the shower and then to work.
Have a great day!

Popping into say hi. Today has been a rough day so I have been dabbling in stamping at work in my free times then will be busting out some Recipe Cards for another swap and some Chrostmas tags for another swap when I get home. Stamping is helping my brain keep from crumbling from pure sadness today

Please excuse the interruption, but here’s a
PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
reminding us that things aren’t always as they seem!


A guy was on the side of the road hitchhiking on a very dark night and in the middle of a storm. The night was rolling on and no car went by. The storm was so strong he could hardly see a few feet ahead of him. Suddenly he saw a car coming toward him and stop.

Without thinking about it, the guy got into the back seat, closed the door and then realized there was nobody behind the wheel! The car started slowly; the guy looked at the road and saw a curve coming his way. Scared, he started to pray begging for his life. He hadn't come out of shock, when just before he hit the curve, a hand appeared through the window and moved the wheel. The guy, paralyzed in terror, watched how the hand appeared every time right before a curve.

Gathering his strength, the guy finally jumped out of the car and ran to the nearest town. Wet and in shock, he went to a restaurant and started telling everybody about the horrible experience he went through. A silence enveloped everybody when they realized the guy was serious.

About half an hour later, two guys walked in the same restaurant. They looked around for a table when one said to the other, "Look John, that's the dummy who got in the car when we were pushing it."
