Fun Friday With A little Help With My Friends and Feline Friday




"Am I fast enough to get past him?"



















I rear-ended a car this morning...the start of a REALLY bad day!

The driver got out of the other car, and he was a DWARF!!
He looked up at me and said 'I am NOT Happy!'
So I said, 'Well, which one ARE you then?'

That's how the fight started.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My wife was standing nude, looking in the bedroom mirror.

She was not happy with what she saw and said to me, "I feel horrible; I look old, fat and ugly. I really need you to pay me a compliment.'

I replied, "Your eyesight's damn near perfect."

And then the fight started........

After retiring, I went to the Social Security office to apply for Social Security.  The woman behind the counter asked me for my driver's License to verify my age.  I looked in my pockets and realized I had left my wallet at home.  I told the woman that I was very sorry, but I would have to go home and come back later.


The woman said, 'Unbutton your shirt'.

So I opened my shirt revealing my curly silver hair.

She said, 'That silver hair on your chest is proof enough for me', and she processed my Social Security application.

When I got home, I excitedly told my wife about my experience at the Social Security office.

She said, 'You should have dropped your pants.  You might have gotten disability too.'

And then the fight started...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My wife was hinting about what she wanted for our upcoming anniversary.  She said, "I want something shiny that goes from 0 to 150 in about 3 seconds."


I bought her a bathroom scale.

And then the fight started......

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My wife and I were sitting at a table at her high school reunion, and she kept staring at a drunken man swigging his drink as he sat alone at a nearby table.

I asked her, "Do you know him?"

"Yes", she sighed, "He's my old boyfriend. I understand he took to drinking right after we split up those many years ago, and I hear he hasn't been sober since."

"My God!" I said, "Who would think a person could go on celebrating that long?"

And then the fight started...


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I took my wife to a restaurant.

The waiter, for some reason, took my order first.

"I'll have the rump steak, rare, please."

He said, "Aren't you worried about the mad cow?"



"Nah, she can order for herself."

And that's when the fight started.....

Thank you Sharon!



More animals in Mexico!




This is so cute - it's a baby elephant getting it's first mud bath - kind of looks like fun.  Hey would you do a mud bath?  I think I would if someone would do it with me!

Sharon said...

Oh Sandie! I am cracking up! My absolute favorite part of this post was the "and then the fight started" stories. Oh my goodness...soooo funny! My favorite one? The one about the dwarf. Back in the day my nickname was Grumpy - must have been the menopause. Now? It's more likely to be Sleepy.

Would I do a mudbath? Probably not. I'd be afraid of getting mud into all the *crevices*...

xo

The Boston Lady said...

And then the fight started... LOL. Loved them all! And the quote by Francis which I believe is exactly what the new pope would say. So glad you ran the little elephant video, and thanks for the shout out! Ann

Finally made it to Kennesaw on Wednesday. Wow, it feels like it is on the other side of the world, driving through Atlanta! Maybe I could meet up with you if I am ever back in that part of the world again? xx

Abelle | The Wows! And Oops! Of Life said...

Hello there, Sandie!

These are funny! But you know, I am touched with the quotes I found below. Just when I needed them.

Happy blogging to us! ;o)

mail4rosey said...

LOL at 'then the fight started!' And the buzzards made my jaw drop (and I laughed). A bunch of good ones, like always. :) Happy weekend to ya!

Josie Two Shoes said...

This whole post was fun from top to bottom, lots of great smiles, old and new! Thanks for the day brightener. And yes, I bet that kitty up top can zoom by that big dog and head for the nearest high spot before he is up and running! Sometimes in life you just have to go for it!

Paula said...

Always love the old age jokes because I'm there so we have to laugh to keep from crying. I am feeling pretty comfortable in my own skin these days though. At least for now. ha ha

Josie Two Shoes said...

I'm back! I read your profile and then started reading down your sidebar, and loved every single quote I found there. I love good quotes... paste them all over my Facebook page, which could more readily be named "Cats and Quotes". :-) I see we are at the same "young of heart" stage in life, and I'll definitely be back for more good reading! <3
