For 2017

Fun Friday with a little help from my friends . . .




I don't want to brag or make anybody jealous or anything, but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.



Last year I replaced all the windows in my house with that expensive double-pane energy efficient kind, and today,I got a call from the contractor who installed them.

He was complaining that the work had been completed a whole year ago and I still hadn't paid for them.

Hellloooo,...........just because I'm blonde doesn't mean that I am automatically stupid...

So, I told him just what his fast talking sales guy had told me last year, that in ONE YEAR these windows would pay for themselves!

Helllooooo? It's been a year, I told him!

There was only silence at the other end of the line, so I finally just hung up.

He never called back. I bet he felt like an idiot.




Now did you get this? A jammed printer!










I know it's not the season, but these are amazing!

Scroll down to see the Amish Christmas lights.



You know very well that the Amish don't use electricity.

Now get back to work!



Happy Birthday Amelia Earhart - Wikipedia

A spirit of adventure seemed to abide in the Earhart children with the pair setting off daily to explore their neighborhood. As a child, Earhart spent long hours playing with Pidge, climbing trees, hunting rats with a rifle and "belly-slamming" her sled downhill. Although this love of the outdoors and "rough-and-tumble" play was common to many youngsters, some biographers have characterized the young Earhart as a tomboy. The girls kept "worms, moths, katydids and a tree toad" in a growing collection gathered in their outings. In 1904, with the help of her uncle, she cobbled together a home-made ramp fashioned after a roller coaster she had seen on a trip to St. Louis and secured the ramp to the roof of the family tool shed. Earhart's well-documented first flight ended dramatically. She emerged from the broken wooden box that had served as a sled with a bruised lip, torn dress and a "sensation of exhilaration." She exclaimed, "Oh, Pidge, it's just like flying!"

Although there had been some missteps in his career up to that point, in 1907 Edwin Earhart's job as a claims officer for the Rock Island Railroad led to a transfer to Des Moines, Iowa. The next year, at the age of 10, Earhart saw her first aircraft at the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines. Her father tried to interest her and her sister in taking a flight. One look at the rickety old "flivver" was enough for Earhart, who promptly asked if they could go back to the merry-go-round. She later described the biplane as “a thing of rusty wire and wood and not at all interesting.”

Hey Sandie!

Those are all funny!

When we went on vacation to Canaan Valley we ate at Amelia's. They have her picture on the wall. They had pictures of where they had visited her museum or something too. The food there is incredible! Everything is homemade! It is one of the highlights of our trip!

Have a Wonderful Weekend!

Great laughs as always! Love Maxine, and the blond joke was great! Poor mouse, but that would probably happen around here. Well, it's 3:26 a.m. and I've still got to get OC into her wheelchair and outside to go potty before reading my Bible and getting to bed, so hope you are having a great weekend!
