Fun Friday With a Little Help From My Friends

 photo 000_MOUSIE245bmp.gif

WHAT DAY OF THE WEEK IS IT? IT'S FRIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


I was visiting my daughter last night when I asked if I could borrow a
newspaper.

"This is the 21st century," she said. "We don't waste money on
newspapers. Here, use my iPad."

I can tell you this: that fly never knew what hit him.
(Thank you Kim at MIllie's Mats)



A TRIP TO MEXICO CONTINUED - Doesn't that beach look wonderful and clean?





Ann from Ann's Snaps and Edit sent this to me - it is so cool - do you think people can be made into a car or a car into people?

Did I ever tell you he is going to be another Robbin Williams?








If My Body Was a Car!

This is just
too funny - scary how true it is!!!
If my body was a car, this is the time I would be thinking about trading it in for a newer model. I've got bumps and dents and scratches in my finish and my paint job is getting a little dull...
But that's not the worst of it.

My headlights are out of focus,
and it's especially hard to see things up close.

My traction is not as graceful as it once was. I slip and slide and skid and bump into things even in the best of weather.

My whitewalls are stained with varicose veins.

It takes me hours to reach my maximum speed. My fuel rate burns inefficiently.

But here's the worst of it.

Almost every time I sneeze, cough or sputter,Either My Radiator Leaks or My Exhaust Backfires!
Thank you Jerry at Asthecrackerheadcrumbles.






Okay, okay - I give up!

Katie Clooney said...

Cute post. Sent your link to a couple of my "non blogging" buddies. Can you believe there are people in this world the DON'T blog?? or even read them! They don't know what they're missing!

jack69 said...

Love the kid, even in Mexico. Oh, this is a great post I did especially enjoy the shuttle move, that is amazing!!!

Love from Iowa headed across Illinois to Michigan today. ((HUGS))

Jeanie said...

If my body was a car?-very funny. At least mine still starts in the morning, even on cold days.

linda eller said...

I think my Jim read 'If your body was a car' before he told me I was old! lol Have a good Friday and weekend.

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

All good stuff you shared today. If my body were a car, it'd have to go in for a few repairs for sure! Robin Williams is a favorite of mine! I hope you have a fantastic Friday.

Linda @ A La Carte said...

Always fun on Fridays!

hugs,
Linda

Rose said...

Happy Friday!

If y body was a car was hilarious!

Enjoy your weekend.

Hugs, Rose

Susan said...

Ha ha ha ha ha That was a good one, Sandie.

I've always enjoyed used model cars. My current one is a 2005 and I hope it lasts forever. In that sense, if I were a car, I'd still be put-put-putting along. ha hahahhaha Susan

Elaine @ Sunny Simple Life said...

Oh that kitty is so adorable. Well we drive old cars so I can relate. I think my electrical is going out just like my van. You should link this to the hop today. So funny.http://sunnysimplelife.blogspot.com/2013/07/from-farm-blog-hop_26.html
Following you now!!

Nikki (Sarah) said...

love the pics of your little Robin Williams and the mouse header is sooo cute. Off ziplining with the girls. Hope your Friday rocks in every way Sandie....Love you tons. Oprah

Sandee said...

What a fun post today. The next Robin Williams, my body as a car. Too close for comfort and I loved the space shuttle in the streets of L.A.

The best though was our feline babies.

Have a terrific Feline Friday. Big hugs. ☺

TexWisGirl said...

my body feels like it needs a tune-up today. :)

Bev said...

Hi Sandy... I've been away from 'reading' for two weeks... but last night guess what I bought?? A steamer...no more bleach on my floors!!! LOL

I knew there was something wrong with my body and now you tell me it's a car. lol

Renae Simple Sequins said...

My past calls all the time and we go over some points and realize what I needed to learn. hmmmmm.

Oh, look at you linking. Tremendous. see email.

(hug)

Stephanie said...

Shelly said...

Loved your whole post, and especially the lift!

Denise said...

You make me smile, thanks.

andy said...

Love it !!!!! Have a wonderful weekend

Sharon said...

Really cute pictures of the GS - He is such a lovable *ham*!!

Yup, my "car" is a bit mile-weary. Runs out of gas on a regular basis, it's hard to get the engine started in the mornings, and most of all, it spends most of the day just parked in one place!

Have a great weekend!

xo

Betsy Adams said...

Hi Sandie, My fav. today was about the CAR.... Cute!!!!! BUT--I was also thinking that most of us pay more attention to our cars, and spend more money on keeping them in good shape than we do on ourselves and our bodies!!!!!!

Love the laugh and the lift.
Hugs,
Betsy

Ginny said...

I LOVE the fly joke. O.K., if your body was a car, WHICH car would you be? Are these pictures when his lens was scratched? Is that what he is telling us?

barbara woods said...

Can't stop laughing , so funny

Carol said...

LOVE the fly humor and of course the kitties and everything in-between.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Jill said...

Love these photos of Andy! Looks like he's having so much fun! Love that beach too.

McGuffy Ann said...

Great stuff! Thanks for sharing!!

Miss Debbie said...

Love the fly story and the "past" quote...good stuff!

Rae said...

Your grandson is funny. Bet he keeps you on your toes at all times. Great post again today. Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Jim said...

I love your cats, Sandie!!

Cars and people are similar if we like to think that way.

Andrea said...

These all put a smile on my face, Sandie!! Thank you for that!

Love~ Andrea
XOXOXOXO

NanaDiana said...

All fun! Love "your" Robin Williams. xo Diana

Dolores said...

Your grandson is adorable..... I may see him on TV some day.

I love cats..... the pictures are adorable!!!

Theresa said...

I laughed so hard at the newspaper/IPAD joke! SO FUNNY! Have a blessed weekend dear friend, HUGS!

Patricia said...

Fun Friday post...of course I like the cats the best!

Jemma said...

Sandie,
Mighty cute and clever goodies here today-you always put a smile on my face! Love the advice about the past-
Happy Hugs and Happy Friday!

Terri D. said...

Laughed at the car and body analogy! Very cute and sadly true! Andy is such a cute kid!! Funny too! You are right about that! Love & hugs!

TARYTERRE said...

I LOVE that last quote. So true.

TARYTERRE said...

I LOVE that last quote. So true.

Helena said...

Clicked on the link @ Feline Friday and got a whole lot more fun than just the kitties! Nice start to my weekend!...lol...☺

nancygrayce said...

What a cute little Robin!

I've have to tell my past to get lost all the time!!!

Ann said...

oh how I would love to be on that beach right now.

Nonnie said...

Kittens are just the sweetest. (but I'm still a dog person!) love the lift. So, so true.

Pondside said...

The laugh and the lift get me every time! I'm working on the advice in the lift......

Renegades said...

I so appreciate your quote about the past. A lot of truth in it.

Theresa said...

Goodness, the ipad has me LOL! What do you suppose they will use in the future when all the newspapers are gone? I don't think I have ever owned a real fly swatter. Newspapers have always done the trick for me too!

Dar said...

Andy looks so darned handsome and loving his grandma...sweet stuff.
And, apparently a person CAN turn into a car..lol
Life is Still good

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Fell off the chair on that first one!! LOL

Zoe Byrd said...

another collection of great stuff. Have a wonderful weekend sandie!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

That beach does look beautiful!

I like the quote about the past calling.

Maggid said...

Some people play with their cats by shining a red light - making it travel all over a room . . . Cats go cray wild trying to catch the light - cats get exercise - humans get joy.

love & love,

Terri said...

Just wanted to say congrats on the new family member- I know you are so excited!!

LL Cool Joe said...

Loved the whole post! And I checked out your Facebook page even though I'm not on Facebook, it looked good!

Happy Saturday to you!

Kathe W. said...

thanks for the giggles! Enjoy your day!

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

Oh I never purchase the fireworks. It is like having money to burn, it really is.

Have a great Saturday and Sunday!!!

Blondee said...

Always come away smiling from you page!

Betty said...

Enjoyed the newspaper joke. I'll always have a paper newspaper. So your grandson is another Robin Williams. Must never be a dull moment. Boy, he's getting bigger. Things have gotten very hectic lately, but I'll be back soon. I'm just not getting online much lately.

Grandma Bonnie said...

I just love that fly joke! I have not bought a new paper in years. Thanks for the laughs today.

SweetMarie said...

Your GS seems to be a lot of fun! :)
The lift is soooo TRUE! Great stuff today!
Sandra got two?!!!!?
hugs,
Marie

Eva Ason said...

I love that cute mouse :) Great post as usual

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Sandie .. your grandson looks so much fun and obviously enjoys the limelight ...

Poor fly and worse still for the i-pad! I know I look around for fly splatters sometimes .. and wonder what to use ..

Fun Friday .. Hilary

Lucy said...

Hi there, this is Lucy, the lucky one that lost out on a previous visit a few years back from Sherry and Jack because I was having a hard time getting the Atrial fribulation under control and had to turn them down on a lunch invite. I was so disappointed. This visit made up for it. So you are the car enthusiast??

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Love that last quote. We waste a lot of time and energy looking in the rear view mirror of life.

Sorry I've been AWOL. With working full-time and getting the book ready for publication, I haven't been on the Net much.

Blessings,
Susan :)

Betsy said...

I love the "cracked one" so darn funny.

Mevely317 said...

Love these pix of your grandson, Sandie! ... what a happy fella!

True about the body/car business. Must admit, if my body was a car I wouldn't EVEN be interested in buying it. :(

Have yourself a sweet new week!
...oh, and CONGRATULATIONS on the new grand-nephew! :)

My Journey With Candida said...

Hope you had a GREAT weekend Sandie.... Oh my gosh... where did the time go. The whole weekend just blew by me.

Inger said...

I loved everything here! Will go and check out the kitties now.

Lynn said...

Adorable grandson!

Starry Dawn said...

Hi Sandie,
Great post as usual!
Your uplifting message of joy
always brights up my days.
Friday is my favourite day.
I love your good laughs, Sandie.
Thank you for sharing, my friend!
Doctor Paul is still on vacation.
He demands my attention so much.
I spoke with my daughter.
She told me her eldest child, 16,
wants to be a Medical Doctor,
Specialized in Children Pediatrics.
That was great news after all.
God may bless you, Sandie, family
and beloved ones.
Hugs,
Starry.

Debbie said...

Fell off the planet for a few days so your Fun Friday turned into Mirth Monday for me.

I love the one about the car the best. The radiator part just cracked me up. I tried not to crack up too hard, though, lest mine start leaking.
