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




Maggie the English Mastiff vs. Dude the Chihuahua (Thank you Linda at Country Corgi.)







Chatty is sooooooooooooo crunchy! But at least I'm not old. (Thank you Linda at Country Corgi - I think!)




This is how my Christmas decorations are coming a long so far.








Now out in paperback!!
The book "Understanding Women" has finally arrived in book stores:


(Thank you Linda from Corgi County!)

And I can't do a Friday post without my friend Jerry- As The Cracker Crumbles.

An Italian Mama
Mrs. Ravioli comes to visit her son Anthony for dinner.
He lives with a female roommate, Maria.

During the course of the meal, his mother couldn't help but notice how pretty Anthony's roommate is.

Over the course of the evening, while watching the two interact, she started to wonder if there was more between Anthony and his roommate than met the eye.

Reading his mom's thoughts, Anthony volunteered, "I know what you must be thinking, but I assure you, Maria and I are just roommates.''

About a week later, Maria came to Anthony saying, "Ever since your mother came to dinner, I've been unable to find the silver sugar bowl. You don't suppose she took it, do you?"

"Well, I doubt it, but I'll email her, just to be sure." So he sat down and wrote an email:

Dear MaMa,

I'm not saying that you "did" take the sugar bowl from my house ; I'm not saying that you "did not" take it.

But the fact remains that it has been missing ever since you were here for dinner.

Your Loving Son
Anthony

Several days later, Anthony received a response email from his MaMa which read:

Dear son,

I'm not saying that you "do" sleep with Maria, and I'm not saying that you "do not" sleep with her.

But the fact remains that if she was sleeping in her OWN bed, she would have found the sugar bowl by now.

Your Loving MaMa

Moral:
Never Bulla Shita you MaMa You gotta admit that was funny.

All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth!





Thought for the day:

True love - is being loved whether you have abs or not!

So funny, Sandie. I really liked the ditto lights! LOL
Love the sugar bowl story. I'll have to remember that one. That is one SMART mama!!
I have seen the 'Understanding Women' picture on Facebook. One lady commented and said it was only Volume 1. I thought that was funny.
Hope you have a great weekend, my friend.! We're hoping to put up our tree tomorrow. :-)

Sandra said...

i think my favorite is the book, the big book. LOL and I love the Big dog and Little dog video. i am both crunchy and old and add some crackle. hubby and i both sound like a box of rice crispies when milk is added.

Thisisme. said...

Loved all the little funnies today my friend, all the funny pictures, and the story about the sugarbowl was priceless!! Hee Hee!! Enjoy your weekend my friend. (That huge book about Understanding Women would be about right!!!).

HOOTIN' ANNI said...

Awwwwwwwwwww, sweet, sweet critter shares. But I must say, I'll NEVER eat a soft serve ice cream cone again without seeing that picture in my head. What a hoot.

A link to my Friday post: Part 1 of our Road Trip

Hope you have a lovely weekend.

Changes in the wind said...

Jill said...

LOL at the snowmen! Video of the dogs was really cute.

Really laughed at MaMa!

Happy Friday, Sandie!

Kim said...

Lol Now I understand why I never liked soft ice cream!

Susan said...

Hi Sandie...Well, you started my day with tears AND laughter. The little girl singing about the Hippo was so adorable it made me cry. What a FABULOUS little voice!

And the sugar bowl story gave me a huge belly laugh....my hubs, too. The two of us sat down in the man cave, laughing our heads off.

Great job! Have a super Friday. Now that mine is off to a good start, I'm sure my day will be good, too! Susan

ArtyMarti said...

I wondered what happened to that light at the tunnel. Thought maybe I was just having an awful year.

My Journey With Candida said...

Hi Sandie,
I have missed visiting you... I was out of action for 2 days taking Hubs to Erie, Pa for his birthday.

Love the exercising cat.

Flora said...

Cute Cute.... Have a wonderful weekend Sandi!!

SweetMarie said...

LOVE the Book! The video of the doggies is too cute!!! The sugar bowl story is great! Mama always knows! LOL
Have a Fantastic Friday Sandie!

....Petty Witter said...

A great post, it put me in my mind of my friend who maintains that the light at end of the tunnel is just the next train waiting to knock you down.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

You know I always enjoy Friday Funnies...ends my week with a smile. hugs, Linda

Eva Ason said...

I saw that ditto pic on facebook and it really cracked me up!

Love the snowmen cartoon too. Happy Friday!

Michelle My Bell said...

LOL!!! I love the one about being "Crunchy" and the house with the lights that said "DITTO" - Love it!!!

Michaele said...

This was great Chatty. I really enjoyed the videos. The elephant and the mouse and the Hippopotomusses.

Just Stuff From a Boomer said...

I think I am the only one not to see that paperback on women on facebook. I think there should be one on men too. They really do need to come with a manual. Loved the dogs. The little guy would be just a snack. He's a brave little guy.

TexWisGirl said...

i love that 'ditto' one!

Sharon said...

Oh, what fun!!

OK, I absolutely LOVED that story about the sugar bowl! What a clever mom!

The DITTO lights were good - do you think I could do that about all the shopping and cooking and parties??

And, I am a HUGE Mary Margaret fan! Have you ever watched her video telling the Jonah story? Oh, if you haven't, it's well worth looking at. She is a preacher in the making, for sure!!

Thanks for my chuckle today. And I'm crunching along with you...(not the abs, the joints)

(By the way, I thought that book was about how to look younger when you're *50-something*???)

Love Of Quilts said...

Cute I found out I'm not old I'm crunchy.lol Merry Christmas

Ginny said...

My favorites here today, the Mastiff and tiny dog, that is so cute! The Mastiff is so gentle! And the Italian Mama story, priceless!!! Hope you have a great weekend, Sandie!

Journeyin' Lady... said...

A post today which brings smiles - which you do so well.

Karen Lange said...

Thanks for making me laugh today, Sandie! Have a wonderful weekend! :)

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

Hi Sandie! Loved the ditto on the house! LOL! That's kinda how I feel this year. Wish that would work for the inside as well, but I'll get things going on the decorating this weekend. After seeing all the beautiful Christmas decorations in Branson, I feel almost like I've had my Christmas. I really wish there were a few more days or weeks between Thanksgiving and Christmas.
Have a great weekend!
Cheryl

Remington said...

Awesome post! Thanks for the smile -- I needed it!
