Fun Friday with a little help from my friends!




Thank you Eva















I finished wrapping and mailed all my little packages - everyone's was different so I hope that I kind of picked what suited you. I wish I had the same thing for everyone, but I didn't. I mailed to Europe, Iceland, Canada, and the USA so I hope you get them. I had a lot of fun doing this. Hope you enjoyed.


Thought for the day:

"I think laughter may be a form of courage… As humans we sometimes stand tall and look into the sun and laugh, and I think we are never more brave than when we do that. ~ Linda Ellerbee




MY NEW BOYFRIENDS! I am seeing 5 gentlemen (give or take) every day!.

As soon as I wake up, Will Power helps me get out of bed.

Then I go to see John.

Then Charlie Horse comes along, & when he's here, he takes up a lot of my time & attention.

When he leaves, Arthur Ritis shows up & stays the rest of the day. He doesn't like to stay in one place very long so he takes me from joint to joint.

After such a busy day, I'm really tired & very glad to go to bed with Ben Gay. What a life!

Oh, yes, I'm also flirting with Al Zymer; or whatever his name is. I forget!
and I'm just saying' I'm thinking of calling JACK DANIELS, JIM BEAM, JOSE QUERVO or JOHNNY WALKER to come over and keep me company.

Now remember: Life is like a roll of toilet paper.....the closer it gets to the end, the faster it goes. So have fun, think 'good thoughts' only, learn to laugh at yourself, and 'count your Blessings

Thank you Linda B.



I think we've all been to this place...........

" The Shredder "

A young engineer was leaving the office at 5:45 p.m. when he found the
CEO standing in front of a shredder with a piece of paper in his hand.

"Listen," said the CEO, "this is a very sensitive and important
document, and my secretary is not here. Can you make this thing work?"

"Certainly," said the young engineer. He turned on the machine, inserted
the paper, and pressed the start button.

"Excellent, excellent!" said the CEO as his paper disappeared inside
the machine, "I just need one copy."

Lesson: Never, Never, ever assume that your boss knows what he's doing.

Thank you Jean S





Here is a video of a One Man Saw



Photobucket
A few days ago I was having some work done at my local garage. A blonde came in and asked for a seven-hundred- ten.

We all looked at each other and another customer asked, 'What is a seven-hundred- ten?'
She replied, 'You know, the little piece in the middle of the engine, I have lost it and need a new one..'

She replied that she did not know exactly what it was, but this piece had always been there.

The mechanic gave her a piece of paper and a pen and asked her to draw what the piece looked like.

She drew a circle and in the middle of it wrote 710. He then took her over to a car just like hers which had its hood up and asked 'is there a 710 on this car?'.

She pointed and said, 'Of course, its right there.' the mechanic fainted
If you're not sure what a 710 is

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

Thanks for the laugh so early this morning! I second what Sandra said about the wires. And the 710/OIL was just hilarious!

Munir said...

LOL, what a great start of a day!

Sandie, what do you know. My husband and me are about to head off to the Toyota dealer as the Check light is on. I will let you know about the money that we will be spending today.

Oh My Gosh Sandie Sweetie...
That one is so darn cute. I love the oil that was 710. And Bessie was so brave, she got herself pierced. Cute, Cute, Cute.

You asked about Miss Minnie, yes I am going to dress her for each season. I thought it would be so much fun. I am working on Halloween as we speak. Can't wait to get her complete.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend. I have so missed blogging with you sweetie. Yep, I am back.

Many hugs and much love, Sherry

Ann said...

the one about your 5 boyfriends cracked me up and I hate to tell you this but a couple of them guys have been hanging out here too....lol

Janie said...

Sometimes I think it would be nice to have a "delete button" on more than just the computer! Your jokes are pretty amusing here.

You love to read. What are you reading now? I just can't sit down and read a book. My mind wanders, and I think about what else I could do. Maybe someday.

So you were 18 when you had that surgery! Wow. Thanks for that...

Sarah (Nikki) said...

Coming here...is like breathing...loved the humor and you....
