Fun Friday with a little help from my friends


Hey I want to thank all my new followers.  A lot of you I can find your blog, but some of you I can't find your blog.  I don;t know why, but if you followed me and want me to check your blog out - send your blog address to me.  Please don't think I am ignoring you - I just can't find you.  I love all my followers.  Chatty/sandie





A Story All Women Will Enjoy! Thank you Monica


THE BOTTLE OF WINE

For all of you who are married, were married, wish you were married or wish you were not married, this is something to smile about the next time you see a bottle of wine:


Sally was driving home from one of her business trips, in Northern Arizona , when she saw an elderly Navajo woman walking on the side of the road. As the trip was a long and quiet one, she stopped the car and asked the Navajo woman if she would like a ride.


With a silent nod of thanks, the woman got into the car.
Resuming the journey, Sally tried - in vain - to make a bit of small talk with the Navajo woman. The old woman just sat silently, looking intently at everything she saw, studying every little detail, until she noticed a brown bag on the seat next to Sally.


"What in bag?" asked the old woman.

Sally looked down at the brown bag and said: "It's a bottle of wine. I got it for my husband."


The Navajo woman was silent for another moment or two. Then, speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder, she said:

"Good trade . . ."
(Sorry fellas - it was just too cute).








IF WOMEN ONLY TRUSTED THEIR HUSBANDS!!

There comes a time when a woman just has to trust her
husband...
For example...A wife comes home late at night, and quietly opens the door to her bedroom. From under the blanket she sees four legs instead of two. She reaches for a baseball bat and starts hitting the blanket as hard as she can.

Leaving the covered bodies groaning, she goes to the
kitchen to have a drink.
As she enters, she sees her husband there, reading a magazine.
"Hi Darling", he says, "Your parents have come to visit us, so l let them stay in our bedroom. Did you say "hello"?
thanks kelly




 
Ever  walk into a room with some purpose in mind, only  to completely forget what that purpose was? 

Turns out, doors themselves are to blame for  these strange memory  lapses.

Psychologists  at the University of Notre Dame have discovered  that passing through a doorway triggers what's  known as an event boundary in the mind,  separating one set of thoughts and memories from  the next.Your brain files away the thoughts you  had in the previous room and prepares a blank  slate for the new locale.

Thank goodness  for studies like this. It's not our age, it's  that darn  door!
Thanks Myra.

 


Limo back in the old west


























And this one is a little bad - so  you can skip!

A Priest was presenting a special children's mass to the congregation.

During the message, he asked the children if they knew what the

resurrection was.

Now, asking questions during children's mass is crucial, but at the same

time, asking the children questions in front of a congregation can also be

very dangerous.


Having asked the children if they knew the meaning of the resurrection,

a little boy raised his hand. The Priest called on him and the little boy

said, "All I know is that if you have a resurrection that lasts more than four

hours you are supposed to call the doctor."


It took over ten minutes for the congregation to settle down enough from

their laughter for mass to be continued.

Thank you Ann from Anne'ssnapeditandcraff and Jerry from Asthecrackerheadcrumbles.

Betty Manousos said...

that happy dog face made me lol

i know i could count on you to give me a good laugh!

happy weekend!~

My Journey With Candida said...

I know what you mean about not being able to find some of the bloggers that follow us. I always try to follow back, but if they don't tell me, I have no idea.

Love those steps, someone had a super idea when they did that. I would have never thought of that.

Have a GREAT weekend. Terry

Shelly said...

ALl of these were terrific, but I am still giggling, and probably will all day, at the Rubik's Cuber one. It's probably because I could never solve one...

Optimistic Existentialist said...

Wow that psychologst study (of what our brains so as we wnter another room) is fascinating!!

Helen said...

They are so funny! enjoy reading all of them. I guess i am hitting middle age.

Jeanie said...

Lots of good laughs today....a good way to start a Friday. The old west limo especially struck my fancy.

Marti said...

Good smiles. I traded my hubby for a bottle of beer, still came out ahead.

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

I am so thankful for all the women in my life. Past and present they've all contributed in some way who I am today. Women stick together, help others and without us the world couldn't continue to go on. Great jokes today! Your posts always leave me smiling!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Great funnies today! Hope you have a fun weekend :-)

Daisy said...

Thanks for all the laughs today, Sandie! I especially liked the "When a woman says 'What?'" cartoon. Have a good weekend!

CalamityJr said...

Oh, the mass story is too funny, and your new source of "lady" cartoons is a hoot. I've heard about the doorway being responsible for memory, but to explain why going back through helps you remember, not as the actual problem. Something to keep in mind, whichever direction you're going!

Nonnie said...

I KNEW there was something to blame other than myself for the memory loss! All of these are too funny, but I love the staircase at the end.

Glad to see you back and thanks for all the smiles you bring. You do make Fridays fun.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

LOVE the "I'm rich" and the Navajo woman's philosophy on life. rofl

Regarding the "Sister's Day" ...it's a private celebration between me and my sister...nothing on the calendar except for when the two of us have set aside March 18th for celebrating our sisterhood.

LL Cool Joe said...

Ha ha, I needed a good laugh today and I got it! Thank you!!

Jill said...

Many good laughs today! Thank you. I do hope you are smiling, Dear one.

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

So many cracked me up today, but the one that had me giggling was the baseball bat and in-laws. Hahahha!

I get so aggravated when I can't find a blogger who has commented or followed me. And some I can't email to ask them, either.

Thanks, as always for the laughs. Your posts always brighten my day!

Renae at simple sequins said...

Sharon said...

Oh my goodness! This was one of your best efforts. I have been sitting here laughing my head off. For some reason, the one that made me laugh the hardest was the cartoon about the Rubik's cube. Maybe my sense of humor is just warped...

Let me rephrase that. My sense of humor IS warped...that's why I love this stuff.

Still chuckling.

Sr. Ann Marie Slavin said...

I have no idea where you find these things but I love them--particularly got a laugh out of the "over the hill" one and the Navaho woman story.

Jim said...

Thank you for the explanation of why we forget what we were there for in the other room. All of these are really excellent.

My favorite is the 1st Corintian chapter 13 verses 4-7 definition of the spiritual gift of love written on the steps.
