Fun Friday with a little help from my friends...and my awesome grandson.

Please don't think I have forgotten Boston or Texas. I haven't and my prayers are going out constantly for the whole nation.

HAVE A FUN FRIDAY:




Laughter is inner jogging.

-Norman Cousins


 

 
And yes we have a pre-teen here.  Can you tell????

Your awe moment for today.




You have to admit this is funny.

This too!




Can anyone relate?




Hope no one still has snow!!!!!!!!!!!!




He just can't get comfortable - ever have one of those days - I have.




Irish Birth Control

Mrs. Donovan was walking down O'Connell Street in Dublin when she met up with Father Flaherty.

The Father said, 'Top o' the mornin' To ye! Aren't ye Mrs. Donovan and didn't I marry ye and yer
Hoosband two years ago?'

She replied, 'Aye, that ye did, Father.'

The Father asked, 'And be there any wee little ones yet?'

She replied, 'No, not yet, Father.'

The Father said, 'Well now, I'm going to Rome next week and I'll light a fertility candle for ye and yer hoosband.'

She replied, 'Oh, thank ye, Father...' they then parted ways..

Some years later they met again.

The Father asked, 'Well now, Mrs. Donovan, how are ye these days?'

She replied, 'Oh, very well, Father!'

The Father asked, 'And tell me, have ye any wee ones yet?'

She replied, 'Oh yes, Father!   Two sets of twins and six singles, ten in all!'

The Father said, 'That's wonderful!  And how is yer loving hoosband doing?'

She replied, 'E's gone to Rome to blow out yer fookin' candle.

Thank you Jerry asthecrackercrumbles.

That little dog, sliding on the larger dog, reminds me of my granddogs!

Two of my granddaughters (Mike's girls) were about 50 miles from that Texas blast. I'm so relieved they are okay!

Thanks for the smiles. I can definitely use some.

Sharon said...

These were priceless. Really hard to pick a favorite this week.

Ummm...considering I just spent the last two weeks with my parents, I might have to pick the photo of the two senior citizens with their "Rita" T-shirts!

Great chuckle today - I needed it!

xo

Ginny said...

I think my favorites today are the strapless dresses in church, that image is funny. And the parents of a teenager thing. Wait till he gets his learner's permit, that is the WORST! Hope you have a great weekend!

Rose said...

Love you Post.

Laurie said...

I'm so glad we have you!

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

Have a great weekend!

Arkansas Patti said...

This might be the funniest group ever and boy was it needed with all the tragic news lately. Laughed out loud. Thank you.

Inger said...

Those puppies and dogs are adorable and we all need a break from horror right now. While that open position was funny, it was a bit sad too, wasn't it?

barbara l. hale said...

Love that joke! I'm surprised she didn't go after that candle herself. And what's up with bulldogs wanting to ride around on sleds and skateboards etc.? Very funny.

Jemma said...

Yeah for Friday!! Oh my goodness-love the position open -doggie trying to get comfy and the Bridesmaids!! Still laughing!

Have a very fine weekend!
Jemma

Charlotte Wilson said...

Wonderful Friday post!

Debbie said...

haha...I REALLY enjoyed this. Lots of laughs.

I appreciate you reading my blog. I will be back here for sure. My mother had a stroke two years ago and has suffered with seizures ever since. And then she lost her husband of 25 years last June and moved in with my husband and I. She had a REALLY bad seizure in Dec. while she was at my sisters, and broke her neck! She was very fortunate and did not have any permanent problems from that, but she had to have surgery, be in the hospital for a 6 weeks, and just got out of the hard neck brace a week ago. OH! and she had another scary seizure in March, but she was sitting right beside me at the time, so nothing else happened. I think that about catches you up. It has been some hard times for my poor mom recently. Enjoy your week-end!

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Love the sledding dog! Happy Weekend:@)

Merlesworld said...

I's been a unhappy week for your country, you could do with something uplifting and this would help, your post always makes me smile.
The pictures of the pups are sweet.
We spell mom as mum maybe ours means

Merle........

Ann said...

Ah yes, I do remember being the mother of teens and that one is right on the money...lol
The one with the strapless dresses is hilarious

Debbie said...

Yay!! I finally got here before the sun went down on a Friday. I found a few minutes while the husband ran to the store to stop by and get my weekly laugh.

And I think my mom would still agree with the MOM one. I think she might have a definition for GRAM.

Gives
Really
Alot of
Money

SavannahGranny said...

what a laugh you gave me. All of it was great especially the Irish bith control.
I am so jealous of you girls getting together in Atl, It looked like you were having fun.
Thanks for your sweet visit.

Retired English Teacher said...

Lots of laughs in this one.

Jill said...

As the Mom of a nineteen year old...YES...I am ready to run away!

Needed and loved that awe moment!

Hope you enjoy a relaxing weekend too my friend.

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

Since I just transferred money (again) to my son yesterday I can relate to the MOM post! The strapless gown photo is hysterical. And the little puppy animated graphics are so sweet. Have a great weekend!

Marsha @Spots and Wrinkles said...

Loved the "awe" moment. And the sledding dog. :) Have a good weekend.

Catherine said...

You always bring sunshine.

Jim said...

You outdid youself this Friday, Sandie. Lots of laughs. Also some very neat dogs. The poodle pup says we should have gotten Katrin as a pup instead of her being eight years old.

My kiddie filter kicked in because of the B.C. joke. I did get it overridden.

Position open. My friend, a single lady, had here picture taken with Terry Bradshaw when he came to our church. I asked her if she gave him her phone number.
She didn't. I told her she should have and she agreed.

Granny Annie said...

Where to I start on my favorites for this Friday. Love the dog trying to get comfortable. Love the bridesmaids in church. LOL Return me to Rita!!! And blowing out the fooking candle. Hope you never run out of Friday Fun!

Nikki (Sarah) said...

I love these....especially the if lost, call Rita...and the little pup who can't get comfortable. I love how you post these every week to make us smile. Hugs Gail and oh yeah...I really did see Oprah last week....a reminder to me to live our best lifes. You're doing that. I'm in awe of you...

Nancy Claeys said...

Love all of these -- but mostly I want that puppy! Darn you Sandie! Lol.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Munir said...

Return to Rita is soo cute. I am almost tempted have them made. LOL

I stick with my husband most of the times. After his open heart surgery he looses his foot balance every now and then, so places where there are no shopping carts I stay next to him.

That "position open" sticker is hilarious. I saw one of those last autumn on the road for the very first time. It said "vacant" haha.

Nancy said...

You always make me laugh and what a generous gift to give another....Love those puppy videos....

Have a great weekend Sandy...

Mevely317 said...

Wonderful shares, Sandie!!!

That "awe moment" (puppy video) looks so much like Caraleigh did when she was new, my eyes just welled up... but, then it brought back so many happy memories, I couldn't help but smile.
(See what a Good Deed you just did? - lol.)

Have a terrific weekend, my friend.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Oh that "position open" one really made me laugh. So many times....

Have a wonderful weekend, Sandie!

Zoe said...

Very funny. As someone in the BOston area the funny is what is keeping us all sane...its important to remember that life and laughter will continue.

Susan said...

Eva Ason said...

Good Sunday morning, I am very late. Been busy organising my things for the move. Love your post as usual, cute dog that cannot get comfy, too funny. I laughed at the Irish story :) Enjoy your day, Hugs x

Rob-bear said...

Bear's a bit late (but that's not news; it happens quite often).

Pup in the basket get's my vote for "attitude of the weekend."

And thinking about that candle, "When you're hot, you're hot!"

Hope you're having a wonderful Sunday.

Blessings and Bear hugs!
