Great smile today, Sandie. Many good ones here-Love the dog pulling the old man out of the chair (CAT). Hope you have a good day and weekend- xo Diana

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Great as usual!

My two favorites today are the before and after with the pants. LOL. And I agree about spending time and not money with children. That is SO important.

Happy New Year!

Love you...

Susan said...

Hi Sandie....I agree that getting older is a privilege denied to many. Here's to life!

Great post! Susan

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

Good morning chuckles! Just what I need! And it helps that I'm not 'old' so I can laugh at these jokes! hahaha! Hugs!

Jeanie said...

We are all lucky if we are getting older...and even luckier if we can do it with a sense of humor.

Sandra said...

i might try the yelling CAT to get me up next time and i might even try the recycle bin... i need one for my back.

Joyce Olson said...

Oh Sandie,
Such great inspiration and in so many forms-
You brighten my life!
Wishing you the best of everything this year.
Happy New Year,
Love,
Jemma

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

If we ever find the answer to the chocolate question I'd like to know! Happy Friday Sandie:@)

Knitty said...

So very true, especially the advice!

Happy New Year to you and yours with best wishes, always.

Terri Buster said...

All so funny (and so relatable) Sandie- thanks for the laughs this morning!

Jeanne said...

Love these - especially "googleheimers." I've had that many times! Happy Friday!

Sandee said...

I love them all and I'm not worried about my age. Hubby and I are living our lives as we chose. It a wonderful life indeed.

Have a fabulous day honey. Big hugs. :)

jack69 said...

Good one my friend. I am loving that C.S. Lewis quote. "JOY"

Loved every thing, got a big smile out of the 'Relaxed Fit' for my skin!
Always, the laugh (NOT FUNNY TODAY!) LOL
and the Lift.
Take care, and stay warm.

Love Sherry & Jack

Aunt Betsy said...

My favorite is the man getting out of the chair (CAT!) and time spent with children. Thank you for your Friday posts and have a wonderful day.

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

hi Sandie. I'm right here. I have very precious time on my computer lately. But once all of the out of town guests are on their way I can get my blogging done the way I please. I still love you and want to keep you in my heart and mind forever and ever. One more event tomorrow and then things will be better in my responsibilities around here. Still visiting our ill relative and the holidays have been so busy. But I have been able to post M-F for three weeks now. {major goal accomplished, yay!} There are a ton of funniest items here today. I laughed at most of them because they are sadly TRUE! lol

Diane Cayton-Hakey said...

Googleheimers... Bwaaa haaa haaaa. That would be me.

barbara woods said...

love it dear

Sharon said...

Thank you for this one today! This is the year that I turn 60, Lord willing. And I am NOT looking forward to it! So, I really appreciated the laughs and the good thoughts in this post.

Just yesterday I was getting my hair colored and cut - (Going gray is not an option at this point. Ahem). And my stylist was telling me that a friend they had just seen on New Year's Day died in his sleep that very night. He was only in his late 40's.

So, the quote about getting older being a privilege really struck me today. Every day that we wake up, God has given to us. Let's use it wisely.

Happy New Year, Sandie, and as always, GOD BLESS!

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

I am definitely relaxed fit here. I'm fit for relaxing and not much else. I've had company for a few days and now it is time to relax awhile. Hope you had a Happy New Year. Blessings for 2014.

Beth said...

I loved everything today Sandie! Thank you!

Lee said...

These are great! They'll surely see me through the day and beyond!

Thanks, Sandie. :)

Terri D. said...

Laughing, Sandie! I can identify with so many of those cartoons! Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Fun stuff and some truths too. My favorite is "live your life and forget your age". Amen to that one! Have a nice weekend, Sandie!

Maggie Ann said...

Growing old is hard...but as you say...many would love to have had the chance. Smiles are such a good tonic!

Paula said...

Lots of good ones here today. I like the one with the man in the recycle bin.

TARYTERRE said...

Getting old is a gift. LOVED each and every one of these.

Ann said...

OMG, relaxed fit skin. I love that one. I also think I have googleheimers

A Quiet Corner said...

Hmmm...spending time rather than money with your kids! Now if only I could convince them to do that with their kids!!!!...:)JP

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

goodness Sandie - you had me laughing and chuckling none stop!! Great with the sagging pants for the kid and pulled up to his neck for the old man. I don't get it -- How long will this sagging style last???? I saw a guy walking down the street yesterday and he was waddling, his pants were so low!!
On the news the other night, a home owner had a video surveillance camera that caught two guys stealing from their home. In one clip- the guy was loading a stolen TV into his car and his pants were sagging so low down his butt, I swear I saw a brown streak!! If those robbers only knew what the world saw!!
A WONDERFULLY HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU and YOUR FAMILY!!

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Sandie .. love the CS Lewis quote .. Joy is the Serious Business of Heaven ...

Any laughter is good for us .. these are all wonderful .. cheers Hilary

Lucy said...

All are good. Getting older is a privilege denied to many. I am still alive at 83 and nephew and I just made a pact, we will be talking to each other in 10 years. He is 72.

Starry Dawn said...

Hi sweet Sandie, dear friend,
Great Post! I really love it.
It's so very true...
I like the one that says, "Spend more time with children than money with them..."
Telling you a brief old tale about my sad childhood, I really missed my dear daddy when I was a little girl. He preferred spending time with his lover, than spending time with me, his only daughter. My daddy cheated on my mom when I was a little child, and he broke the heart of my mom. My dear mom got so sad and depressed that she took all her anger, sadness, frustrations, her depression on poor me, just a little child. Beatings were daily things. Then, my poor heart -as a little girl- got broken too...
Then, I took 10 years of beatings out of the father of my daughter.
So, I really know how to live with a broken heart. I have gone too far, as far as 60 years old.
I am just too tired of living with a broken heart. At times, I feel like giving up and go to Heaven with the Lord, where I shall finally be at peace.
I truly need some happy hours to remain alive...
Happy New Year, Sandie, family and beloved ones!
Doctor Paul and I are still struggling without elevators living on the 15th floor, without electricity and water, just running on and off. I guess they have forgotten us. Paul is making plans to move elsewhere to a safe place. But if we do, it won't be any Internet computers there...
Please, pray for us, Sandie dear.
Have a blessed New Year with all your beloved ones, my friend!
To my super friend, Sandie,
All the Best,
Starry.

Those were fun, I can so relate!

Hi Sandie,

Hope you're doing great and that you've had a nice weekend!

Hugs,
Eva

Granny Annie said...

Oh my grandchildren love me but they certainly enjoy the money:)

Art and Sand said...

Each time I read a new quote/cartoon I would think "this is my favorite". I loved so many that I can't pick out the best, but I sure can identify with most of them.

Thanks for the smiles and laughs.

Mevely317 said...

Lots of truth here ... 'tween the giggles!
Googleheimers, indeed! We should start a support group, don't-cha think?

Have a great new week!

Catherine said...

Dear Sandee, These are all True!!
I love the laughs that you share to brighten everyones life.
You are an exceptional person.
Blessings and hugs, Catherine xo

Susan J. Reinhardt said...

Love the C.S. Lewis quote at the beginning.

Small Kucing said...

LOL....Just the thing to brightens up my monday blue :)

Thanks :)

Coming here from Ginny's blog

Jim said...

I can relate to every one of your aging jokes, Sandie. But the older I get the less funny they get.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

Love 'em all...
but that recycle bin made me giggle out loud. And like Lisa, the first commentor here, Yep...I've done that before too.

Nancy's Notes said...

What great ones! Didn't get a chuckle from them, a hearty laugh heard my my husband in another room! Loved them all, Miss Sandie!

Happy New Year to you!
Nancy

SweetMarie said...

Laughter is the best medicine! Thank you, Sandie!
hugs,

Lucy said...

I really like the one where when I fall I look around for what else I can do while down there. And the pants.

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

Oh oh, SEVEN degrees in Atlanta? That is unheard of. I saw on the CBS Nightly news that the polar air that is usually on top of the globe has tilted onto Canada and is bringing this horrid cold too far south. The Rocky Mountains are protecting us, thus far anyway. We are having normal winter weather finally; a few storms and then below freezing at night and above 32° in the day. Hope you all will be OK!!!♥

Debbie said...

Totally CHUCKLED out loud at Googleheimers!! I am going to remember that one.

I also loved the one about the man getting out of his chair. I'm just blonde enough to have had to stare at it for a millisecond before "getting" it, though. Sad, but true.

I agree about spending time with the children. There is no substitute. Sadly, we're seeing serious neglect these days, even from the *best* of families. It troubles me.

Dee said...

Sandie, I think we have the same humor gene....I smile all the way to my toes reading your selected cartoons and jokes.
