Look at the spinning woman and if she is turning right your right side of your brain is working. If she is turning left your left side of your brain is working ....

If she turns both ways for you then you have a 160 or better IQ (And I do not know if this is true - the reason I believe it is true - she turns both ways for me - lol - seriously!)



Now something I am grateful for - I won a blog giveaway - over at Anne at Annesphamily - she and I have been friends for a long time. Any way the box was filled with goodies.

A coffee mug

A silver tray - she put five lovely women having fun on it.

Pot Holder - oven mitt - Kitchen towel - all matching. Desert sticks with chocolate and hazelnuts.

And kitchen magnets.
THANK YOU ANNE - loved everything!


THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
"Focus on remedies, not faults." ~ Jack Nicklaus

If I could ask some prayers for my grandson and us - I pray he gets into this next Christian school called Fellowship - if you said a quick little prayer I'd appreciate it - of course - if God says no - prayers for understanding. Thanks.

These were too funny! And, on a more serious note, I am praying for your grandson to get into the right school.

Sandra said...

i am glad the frog bit him, he deserved it and wish i could have seen that mouse.

If the dancer is standing still, would that mean I had a brain freeze?

Marti said...

Enjoyed the smiles. Your grandson is on my list as well as you for the patience to wait on God's timing.

The Boston Lady said...

If I watched her long enough she spun both ways, but I think it is in your perception of how you see her spinning. Anyway, 5 minutes spent watching a woman's silouhette spinning...I can't be very smart.

I think the frog has an IQ of 160, he knew enough to bite the hand that feeds him fake ants...

Thoughts and prayers for GS and the school. Have a RELAXING weekend.

The frog biting that guy is hilarious! Funny post Sandie!

Great post and a prayer has been said....

Susan said...

Hello Dear Sandie...

Got a kick out of both videos. Hilarious.

The dancing girl went in both directions for me, too. All I kept thinking is how I wish I had her figure. ha ha ha ha ha

And Sandie, I'm praying that God's will be done for you and GS. That way, the BEST will happen.

Take care and have a wonderful Friday. Susan

Betsy from Tennessee said...

I've always enjoyed the spinning girl. She turns both ways for me --but I do NOT have a high IQ.... ha

Love Angela's list: Fed Ex merges with UPS --and it's called FED UP..... Love it...

Have a great weekend.
Hugs,
Betsy

Lynn said...

The spinning woman was going both ways for me, too, but I have no idea what my IQ is. :) Fun post.

Walking on Sunshine... said...

These were funny! I said a prayer for your grandson! Hope you have a nice weekend!

Thisisme. said...

Loved these funnies to end the week with! Prayers certainly being said for your grandson, in the hope that he will get into the Christian school. I do believe in the power of prayer. Keep us posted!! Hugs.

Belle said...

Until your last post, I didn`t know it was hard to get into a church school. I think more should be started if that is the case. I am definitely praying and hoping.

Love the frog, I don`t blame him for becoming frustrated. That game can`t taste too good!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Fun and interesting things. It can't be true about the 160 because I saw her moving both ways!
Love the items you won. Have a wonderful weekend.

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

The kitten's cute and I LOVE the thought for the day! Happy Weekend Sandie:@)

Ann said...

the secretary video cracked me up, I love it.
The girl turned both ways for me too so I guess we are both pretty darn smart...lol
I just bought oven mitts with that exact same print. Congrats on the win, you got a great package

Maple Lane said...

Thanks for the smiles.

I'll be praying for your grandson.

Blessings to you this weekend.

Annesphamily said...

I am praying for the GS! I request prayer for Nick too so that all is well to get into the Kansas Wesleyan college. A good school is a tremendous boast of confidence for young people today.
I am glad you liked your giveaway win! It was a long time coming to you!
Enjoy the weekend!
Hugs Anne

Sue said...

enjoyed the list of mergers....especially. FedUp.

forgetmenot said...

Thanks for the laughs--I can always find one on your blog! The turning girl is so interesting--I just find it amazing that she reverses at any old time. Have a great weekend. Mickie :)

Jerry E Beuterbaugh said...

Thank you for another very honorable mention!

Granny Annie said...

The silhouette turned right, right, right. I tried to picture it turning left and could not. Can't believe it would turn any other way.

Debbie said...

These are all great. I love your Fun Fridays. My gal is turning right, which is absolutely no surprise for me. There's never been a lot of action on the left side of this random brain.

And I hadn't forgotten your grandson and the school. I was hoping there was an update. Will keep on praying and believing that God has something perfect planned.

Sarah (Nikki) said...

you did it again Chatty...you made me smile with your fun blog. And praying for Andy.....when will you know? Have a great weekend. Hope it's lots of fun.

Betty Manousos@ Cut and Dry said...

your post are always worth the read!

what a delightful post! i really enjoyed it! and thanks for putting a smile on my face, sandie!


beautiful gifts you won!!

Stella said...

I'm watching the spinning women and she is spinning both ways and I'm thinking just goes to show how different I am I can't even make her spin one way. Glad to know I'm not the only one. I have been praying for the right place for your grandson and also for peace and knowledge for you that he has a plan he will reveal in his own time. Have faith all will be well.

Southwest Arkie said...

Prayers that your grandson gets accepted into a good christian school, and hopefully the one y'all have chosen for him.

Eva Ason said...

I'm praying for your GS ^_^ that he will be accepted!
I've given up long time ago to be normal [lol]. I like that frog movie - ouchie though go get bitten [hehe].
Congratulations to the give away ^_^

Big hugs
Eva

Sharon said...

I TOTALLY jumped at the frog video! Scared me to death!

The spinning woman was quite interesting. I saw her spinning right at first - and was finally able to make her turn left for awhile.

I guess that means that I'm in my right mind most of the time. (Or an IQ of 159...)

Prayers for school coming your way.
