Fun Friday with a little help from my friends...


I'm gray not blonde - I follow everyone on bloglovin - and last night I must have hit mark all blogs as read and they all got marked read and I didn't get to read them.  So I apologize!  Has that every happened to you - if so - is there anyway to get them back?

laugh photo ATT06595.gif


I pulled into the crowded parking lot at the local  shopping center and  rolled down the car  windows to make sure my Labrador Retriever  Pup had fresh air. She was stretched full-out on the back seat and I wanted to impress upon her that she must remain  there.

I walked to the curb backward, pointing my finger at the  car and saying emphatically, now  you  stay. Do  you hear  me?" "Stay!   Stay!"

The driver of a nearby car, a  pretty blonde young  lady, gave  me a strange look and  said,"Why  don't you  just put it in  'Park'?" 





THIS IS NOT  DISCO, BUT THIS LOOKS EXACTLY WHAT I'D IMAGINE DISCO WOULD LOOK LIKE IF SOMEONE GAVE HIM A CUPCAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!







THIS IS WHAT CHATTY WOULD LIKE TO DO THESE DAYS - CAN ANYONE RELATE?







THAT'S MY STORY AND I'M STICKING TO IT!




THIS IS FOR MY FRIEND JACK - AT SHIPLOG.











OKAY I COULD NOT RESIST - THIS IS TRUE RIGHT?



DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT IS GOING ON HERE?  SO CUTE AND SWEET.





PEOPLE SHOWING LOVE IN LITTLE WAYS.


OKAY - NOW TO PROVING WINTER AND SNOW CAN BE FUN ....



CAN YOU MAKE THIS MANY SNOWMEN WHERE YOU LIVE?






SNOWMAN'S TRAVEL (GULLIVER'S TRAVEL)







SNOWMEN'S POKER DAY




WHICH ONE IS THE REAL ONE?  







ISN'T THIS AMAZING?




























THE LAUGH:



THE LIFT:




SOMETHING TO THINK ABOUT:

The snow photos are all amazing! It's nice here so I hope we can go hiking the weekend! Enjoy your day my friend and thanks for the laughs!

Sandee said...

Why don't you just put it in park. Bwahahahahahahahaha. I almost fell off my chair.

I don't know anything about Bloglovin so I can't help. I've done this before, but in Feedly when I have finished all my visits it shows all the most recently read posts.

Have a fabulous day honey.
Big hugs. ♥♥♥

Betsy Adams said...

Cute post... That crazy girl in the first photo is hard NOT to keep looking at... Such FACES.... ha

Love all of your snowmen. I'll send you another one for another time...

Have a good weekend. I'll be working on Family History.
Hugs,
Betsy

Jeanie said...

I love all the clever snow people (and animals). People sure can be creative.
Kid's basketball is my only plan for the weekend, other than a movie with a friend tonight.

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

I especially enjoyed the Maxine cartoon with the extra pounds...that would be me. The upside down snowman is a cuties too. Yes I think we could make a yard full of snowmen, but not me...I'm staying in and keeping warm. You definitely were on a roll today ! Hope you have a fantastic Friday!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I hate when I do that! I use Feedly and I can usually find the recent unread posts. I love all the snowmen....too cute. Have a wonderful weekend.
Debby

Munir said...

That was funny, she actually thought you were talking to your car?

I love all that snow art. I might just go try one myself. There is snow out there and it is still snowing.

I bet my hubby would want to eat out at least one of the weekend days.
Have a great weekend.

Kim said...

Those are great. As usual, I always appreciate the chuckles here.

Cheri said...

Love all those snowman pics. Too cute

Susannah said...

Yep...for me it was the dumb blonde...saying..."why don't you just put it in park?" Each and every photo was wonderful. They all made me laugh! You can brighten my day always! I hope you have a wonderful weekend. Not much planned here and it seems good for a change.

Catherine said...

Grammy Goodwill said...

These are great, esp the snow creations! My plans for the weekend are supervising my husband while he cleans our crawl space.

LL Cool Joe said...

I've seen the dog and the dentist one before, I think he's laying here because the kid is terrified of the dentist and the dog is there to help him get through it, but I might be wrong!

Thanks for the laughs!

LL Cool Joe said...

Oh and I think that girl in your top picture is from the UK! Ha!

Lynn@Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

I like the snow pics, the Old Man Winter on the tree is pretty cool! Have a nice weekend:@)

Rose said...

Love all the snowmen pics.

Hugs, Rose

jackie collins said...

Giggle...giggle...giggle... I think your post will keep me laughing all day today!

Ms. A said...

All those snow photos made me shiver. Glad I'm not dealing with that stuff!

Why don't you just go read the blogs you follow on your dashboard?

Saleslady371 said...

So many funny snow jokes...I laughed so hard and then...wham a huge spiritual message at the end! I love it. (I bet you are a wonderful public speaker and know just how to prepare an audience for sober thoughts!)

Susan said...

Hilarious post, Sandie. Just hilarious.

Loved all the snowmen humor...the sea of little snowmen, the upsidedown snowman, snowman on the side of the road....all soooo cute.

And believe me, if I slide down the front sidewalk, no problem. Tons of padding. ha hahahhahaha Love, Susan

Great collection of pictures. Loved the face in the tree and all the snowmen and snow creatures.

A Quiet Corner said...

Gosh, I loved all those snow pix, Sandie...especially the old man on the tree!!! Your first pic of the blonde making those faces reminds me of a friend I have at the gym...too adorable!...:)JP

Louvregirl said...

Love love all of the funny snowmen CC. You made me laugh and I NEEDED IT!!! (Hugs girl!!)

Beth said...

I certainly can relate!!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

I love all the snow sculptures. And the sculpture breaking free of the mold. No snow here, but it's been pouring cold rain all day.

You asked about our water - it's excellent, and we're in Virginia.

sparkle100-havealook.blogspot.com said...

oh loved it all. Late in here as
usual.

oh that gal top page. Ha-ha.

Love your cartoons.

Excellent!!!!!!!

You make me almost fall off my computer chair.

TARYTERRE said...

LOve all the snowmen.

NanaDiana said...

Lots of goodies here today, Sandie. Love the snowmen in all their many poses. I laughed out loud a couple of times here today- I needed that!!! xo Diana

Nikki (Sarah) said...

Hey Chatty...happy Friday. I love all of these especially breaking out of your mold. Yep...it's my goal for 2014. have an incredible weekend and here's hoping Disco gets a birthday cake. :)

Wanda's Wings said...

So many cute snowmen.

Starting Over, Accepting Changes - Maybe said...

Yes, I can relate to you, Sandi, and I can definitely relate to Maxine falling on her bum on the ice.

Debbie said...

Yes I can relate!

I loved all the snow sculptures and snowmen. I wish we had enough snow here to make one, but if we did get it... I would whine.

That snow face on the tree trunk was amazing, wasn't it?

(And as for what I'm doing here? I am just enjoying having the husband home. He has been gone since Sunday night and will be here any minute. Woohoooo!)

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Tanks for the smile. I really needed them today.

Merlesworld said...

I loved it all today the statues breaking free, all the snow pictures, everything .
Good show, thank you.
Merle..................

Sandy said...

My goodness you found so many cute and funny things today I don't know where to start! I love all of the snowmen, because, well, I love snowmen. I guess the cutest bit was about the blonde saying"Why don't you just put it in 'park'!! Believe it or not, I think I know her! lol.
Have a great weekend!

Diane Cayton-Hakey said...

omg... still laughing at that very first gif of the girl. LOL

Jo-Anne Meadows said...

Thank you, thank you, thank you, I really needed this, this morning as I am going insane with little ones running amuck around my house and crying babies and a husband trying to sleep...........

Paula said...

Like all the snowy pictures. That's all I get to do is look at snow pictures. We have a spring day today. This week-end we're going to burn pear (stickers off cactus) Saturday and go to our little country historical church on Sunday.

betty said...

Loved all the pictures of people being creative making things out of snow!! Not doing much this weekend, just this and that. And you?

betty

Nancy's Notes said...

Oh my gosh, Sandie, I'm still laughing at the...
Why don't you just put it in park! I love all of your photo's, I love your blog and all of your posts are awesome!

Nancy

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

Ok Sandie, I was laughing a ton at the snow characters and the imagination of everyone that did those. So fun and COOOL!

Yes, Liz is a fun fashion blogger and she is super nice to me. I made her banner for her blog too. Well, actually I made it so it looked 'new and improved'. She had it almost exactly like that but I made it have a "professional" look to it. Still got my finger in that pie still and trying to get my design portion up and running.

Life is crazy now dayz!!!!!! :D

Linda @ A La Carte said...

I love all the photos, especially the snow one's. I've hit all read before and just missed those blogs... :(
hugs,
Linda

Theresa said...

I am so loving the snowman photos! I really want to go out and build a snowman now!

Terri D. said...

Sandie, you always come up with the funniest cartoons and jokes for us! I don't know how you find the time, because I know how long it takes to research, save and then post so many photos and jokes. Bless you, always, for making us smile!! Love & hugs.

jack69 said...

Thanks for my cartoon, Love the twice struck! (smile)
Everything was good, Loved the 'You don't have to be Lassie...! That one is great.
You outdone yourself on the snow men. good stuff.
Thanks, always a good visit at Chatty's house...
Sherry & Jack ,,,,Love from Florida

Pondside said...

That was fun - thank you!

Granny Annie said...

I cannot wait to call the Dentist and ask if I can bring my dog Slim the next time I go.

Art and Sand said...

I built a snowman, once, when I was in my 50s. I love how people got so creative in dealing with snow.

I look forward to you fun Friday pics.

mail4rosey said...

lol at the snowmen, and aww to the dog at the dentist's office!!

Willow said...

You are always good for preparing great smiles for us ! Love it !
Thanks Chatty :))))))

Ann said...

I have done that with bloglovin, marking them as all read. Don't know if there's a way to get them back or not but when I did it I just figured it was a sign that I needed to take a break from the computer

Rob-bear said...

Lots of cute things this time, Sandie. As usual. Though I found the army of snowmen a bit unsettling. And yes, we have enough snow here to do that.

Blessings and Bear hugs.

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

The out of the mold sculpture is amazing!

I also enjoyed the unusual take on snowmen. There are some truly artistic people out there.

Jim said...

We don't get snow here, Sandie. I can't make a snowman. Your "DISCO, BUT THIS LOOKS EXACTLY WHAT I'D IMAGINE DISCO WOULD LOOK LIKE IF SOMEONE GAVE HIM A CUPCAKE" picture reminds me of when a naughty dog we had got onto the table and ate a box of donuts.

Adi, RIP, also got to the table and ate eleven tamales, shucks and all.

Knitty said...

Before it began raining I would gladly have sent snow to anyone needing some. Now we have dirty snow, slush and standing water in the street and in parking lots. Snow is much funnier in the comics. ;)

I don't have experience with bloglovin but with bad experiences with other services, I just keep a separate blog that only contains the blog list feature offered through Blogger. Not as efficient but it works for me.

Hope you are having a happy weekend.

JeanMac said...

Love it as usual!

BlueShell said...

Great, as always. And very amusing!
I missed you, dear.

Stacy said...

Thanks for sharing the smiles. I love your Friday posts...even though I might not get to them until Sunday. :) That sculpture (break free from your mold) LOVE that!

Joyce Olson said...

These snowmen are amazing, so talented and capable. I wish I had a snowman for a friend, I have always heard that they are the best!

Just went for a good long walk, now to Michaels to get some more deco mesh, I just sold one of my wreaths!! Whoo Hoo!
Thanks for the laughs my friend!
Love,
Jemma

Lucy said...

Thanks for the tip on SPD disorder. I told my daughter to look it up. Loved the "Why don't you just park".

Inger said...

The older couple bending down to help the ducklings just touched my heart. I also loved the upside down snowman and, of course, you effort in putting all this together for our enjoyment. Have a nice rest of this day.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I'm always amazed at what people come up with! Those are some neat snowmen. Hope you had a good weekend, as for me, I'm ready for a vacation away from everyone. Haha! You probably know what I mean!

Mevely317 said...

I so LOVE seeing all the snow funnies ... as well as the "uh-oh's." (I know, easy for me to say over here in Phoenix ... but I DO miss Winter!)

Have a great new week!

Lee said...

You certainly are or were on a roll, Sandie...and it wasn't a bread rool!

Thanks for the laughs...and wisdom! :)

Lynn said...

Love the cartoon with the dog math. :)

Donna said...

Hahaaa...love the lady helping the baby duck up onto the curb....
((HUG))

Retired English Teacher said...

How cute these photos were! Loved them. Where do you find these things???? I'm glad you find them and that you share.

Dar said...

All the snowmen crack me up and yes, we could make that many snowmen and a gazillion more with all the snow up north. It melted a weeee bit today but it will take about 5 months of Sundays to melt it all...
:) Loved the Disco look-alike.

Nonnie said...

Okay, okay. I get the message about control. It's no fun trying to always be in control. Somebody needs to slap my hands.
Love all the snowmen pics. Amazing.

Starry Dawn said...

Hi Sandie,
I am glad to be able to be back.
Friday is my favourite day.
I love your funny pics, especially the one with the baby holding the lips of her dog. It's so cute!
The first photo of a nutty blondie looks hilarious too.
I am not a blonde, all gray hair.
Thank you for your emails, loving prayers and caring ways, Sandie!
You see, they have repaired the troubles as far as we may know...
Praise the Lord!
We serve an amazing God.
Blessings & Hugs,
Starry.

Sharon said...

Thank you for this - I spent the weekend in the hospital with my dad. So, this better-late-than-never laugh really cheered my heart tonight!

Especially loved the snowmen!

Oh, and the dog keeping his person calm in the dentist chair. Do you think they'd let me take Marty for my next appointment??

XO

Dee said...

Great post as always...I LOVE all the snow men photo's...truly fascinating and creative...the world is full of interesting people and you find them :) I also appreciate all the hard work and time spent on making your blog fun to visit....♥
