Fun Friday with a little help from my friends.









Thank you Marydon. Answer at bottom.




This is a picture taken from directly above these camels in the desert at sunset. It is considered to be one of the best pictures of the year. When you look closely, you can see that the camels are the little white lines in the picture. The black images you see are just the shadows!

Sometimes, our "problems" seem to be as big as the shadows. They probably turn out to be really quite little.

Thank you Jerry.





One day an old German Shepherd starts chasing rabbits and before long, discovers that he's lost. Wandering about, he notices a panther heading rapidly in his direction with the intention of having lunch.

The old German Shepherd thinks, "Oh, oh! I'm in deep s*** now!"

Noticing some bones on the ground close by, he immediately settles down to chew on the bones with his back to the approaching cat. Just as the panther is about to leap, the old German Shepherd exclaims loudly,

"Boy, that was one delicious panther! I wonder, if there are any more around here?"

Hearing this, the young panther halts his attack in mid-strike, a look of terror comes over him and he slinks away into the trees.

"Whew!," says the panther, "That was close! That old German Shepherd nearly had me!"

Meanwhile, a squirrel who had been watching the whole scene from a nearby tree, figures he can put this knowledge to good use and trade it for protection from the panther. So, off he goes.

The squirrel soon catches up with the panther, spills the beans and strikes a deal for himself with the panther.

The young panther is furious at being made a fool of and says, "Here, squirrel, hop on my back and see what's going to happen to that conniving canine!"

Now, the old German Shepherd sees the panther coming with the squirrel on his back and thinks, "What am I going to do now?," but instead of running, the dog sits down with his back to his attackers, pretending he hasn't seen them yet, and just when they get close enough to hear, the old German Shepherd says...

"Where's that squirrel? I sent him off an hour ago to bring me another panther!"

Moral of this story...
Don't mess with the old dogs... Age and skill will always overcome youth and treachery!
BS and brilliance only come with age and experience.

Thanks Marilyn my cousin.


This is really cute - tell it to sneeze and see what he does.
I have no idea how they do this:
TYPE IN a command and see what happens like ... sit, roll over, down, stand, jump, sing, shake, fetch, play dead, etc. And, it's also very cute if you type in a command that's not recognized!!
Make sure you type in "Kiss," too, but do it last.
Thank you Jeannie - my cousin!






Barbie at 60!








Hot and cold sex:

After his examination, the doctor said to the elderly man: 'You appear to
be in good health. Do you have any medical concerns you would like to ask me
about?'

'In fact, I do.' said the old man.. "After I have sex, I am usually cold and
chilly; and then, after I have sex with her the second time, I am usually hot
and sweaty."

After examining his elderly wife, the doctor said: 'Everything appears to be
fine. Do you have any medical concerns that you would like to discuss with
me?'

The lady replied that she had no questions or concerns.

The doctor then said to her: 'Your husband had an unusual concern. He claims
that he is usually cold and chilly after having sex with you the first
time; and then hot and sweaty after the second time. Do you know why?'

"Oh, that crazy old bastard'' she replied. 'That's because the first time is
usually in January, and the second time is in August.


You gotta admit that was funny - right?

What a lot of fun things you have here today. I have to say that Duke knows some tricks that the dog on that link doesn't.

Pondside said...

Thanks for the laugh - and especially for that little dog!...oh, and the camels - what a photo.
I think I must be the Pondside that follows Jenns Three Graces.

Mevely317 said...

I'm sooooo disappointed in myself for not getting the answer to your "murder mystery"! Still, I love these sort of games!

My favorite? The camel picture, hands down - what a neat analogy!

Have a sweet evening :)

Betty (picture circa 1951) said...

The camels have me looking and looking. I just can't see where the lines are the actual camels.

Loved the little dog!

Belle said...

Love the camel photo! The jokes were great and I couldn't figure out the fireman one. That was good too. Yes, Barbie will probably look like that after being tired after a life of dieting!

Thisisme. said...

So many funny ones for us in this post, Chatty! Thank you my friend. Loved the one about the old dog, and the sex once in the winter and once in the summer (LOL!) AND the picture of Barbie at 60. So good! I don't see why others didn't get the fireman joke and the name being John. You said at the end that all the other card players were women!!

Debbie said...

These are great! I laughed as usual, but this week the camel shadow one was the one I liked the best. I really needed to see that. I LOVE it.

Annesphamily said...

I am still chuckling! What great fun! Love to you! Enjoy your weekend. Anne

Kim @ Stuff could... said...

The camel pic is cool! The rest is haha

Desiree said...

I tried to comment on your most recent post, but was unable to do so. Anyway, I trust you are having a wonderful time visiting your grandson!

I have so enjoyed visiting your blog! You pack so many laughs into a single pos, I now know where to head when I need a pick me up!

I absolutely LOVE the camel shot you shared here! Our eyes are so easily duped! Being the owner of German Shepherds, I naturally loved that story! They really are such wise souls, I wouldn't put it past their capabilities to be able to pull off such a stunt!

Thank you very much for visiting my humble abode and for leaving your sweet words on my doorstep. It's always a joy to see someone new has stopped by :)

Sharon said...

I can't believe that I'm a week behind. (Guess that's better than a weak behind - although I'm a victim of that, too...)

As usual, I am laughing out loud. (I know all the teens use ROFL - but that always sounds to me like I'm *rolfing* - and I am not a barf fan). I am on the floor, though - chuckling my heart out.

Loved the "sex" story - just think, if they did it only one more time on Halloween, she could ask that poor old geezer, "Trick or treat?"
