Fun Friday with a little help from my friends.

The best things in life are free, laughter, smiles, trees, flowers, oceans and rivers ... 
(Thanks Sandra for the idea!)                                                                                          
Isn't this scene beautiful? 




                                                                                    




                                                                    Love this one.


What a dream come true!


Must of been a teenager.


                                                          Disco tries to do this too.  

                                                       


                                                                                   


TWO NUNS WERE SHOPPING AT A 7-11 STORE. AS THEY PASSED BY THE BEER COOLER, ONE NUN SAID TO THE OTHER," WOULDN'T A NICE COOL BEER OR TWO TASTE WONDERFUL ON A HOT SUMMER EVENING?

THE SECOND NUN ANSWERED, "INDEED IT WOULD, SISTER, BUT I WOULD NOT FEEL COMFORTABLE BUYING BEER, SINCE I AM CERTAIN IT WOULD CAUSE A SCENE AT THE CHECKOUT STAND."

"I CAN HANDLE THAT WITHOUT A PROBLEM" THE OTHER NUN REPLIED, AND SHE PICKED UP A SIX-PACK AND HEADED FOR THE CHECK-OUT.
THE CASHIER HAD A SURPRISED LOOK ON HIS FACE WHEN THE TWO NUNS ARRIVED WITH A SIX-PACK OF BEER.
"WE USE BEER FOR WASHING OUR HAIR" THE NUN SAID, "BACK AT OUR NUNNERY, WE CALL IT CATHOLIC SHAMPOO.

WITHOUT BLINKING AN EYE, THE CASHIER REACHED UNDER THE COUNTER, PULLED OUT A PACKAGE OF PRETZEL STICKS, AND PLACED THEM IN THE BAG WITH THE BEER. HE THEN LOOKED THE NUN STRAIGHT IN THE EYE, SMILED, AND SAID: "THE CURLERS ARE ON THE HOUSE."





                                                                     
    Wish I could move like that again.




Girls if you want the shoes - buy the shoes - life is too short - but you don't need ten pairs.






True or what?



                                                                                Amen!




Older people are always able to say the truth and get away with it!

                                                                                  Ah, not sure it makes a difference!









Poor Disco - Where are his steps?
He's so confused with all the movement going on in the house.
lol

THE LAUGH:



Remember having to worry about this?

THE LIFT:






It takes a real storm in the average person's life to make him realize how much worrying he has done over the squalls.

The curlers are on the house. Bwahahahahahahahaha. Loved that.

Have a blessed day and weekend honey. Scritches to Disco. ♥♥♥

What a treat collection of funny bits! Some of them very thoughtful.

I hope you have a great couple of weeks, and don't feel too "drained" at th end.

Blessings and Bear hugs!

sparkle100-havealook.blogspot.com said...

Love your belly laughs. Sending hugs to you friend.

Just posted on mine.

I got rid of my sofa and put up my new one.

Have a great day relax.

Sharon said...

Fun chuckles with you again! Thanks for giving me many smiles today.

And drains?? That sounds so painful, and sorta yucky. Do they have spigots on them?! (Sorry...couldn't resist)

Will miss you, but take it easy. You've got an awful lot going on right now.

Love u and your bunch! Disco, too.

Gotta run for now - need to shampoo my hair and use my curlers.

Betsy Adams said...

Hi Sandie, Sorry about the Drains --but like you said, you have done GREAT overall... Take all of the time you need to get healthy.....

Love the one about the Nuns and Beer... CUTE.... Others I enjoyed: Snap, Crackle, Pop one, Running of the Bulls, and the statement about getting OLD once you stop having fun!!!

Hugs and Prayers,
Betsy

Susan said...

Oh, there were so many good things in today's post, Sandie. Was chuckling away!

You know I am hoping the BEST for you.

Have some fun in these next couple of weeks, too, okay? Susan

Vee said...

No, they're not! I get to wish you all the best and be a very good girl!

Diane Cayton-Hakey said...

"am I dead?" bwaaa haaaa haaaa My heaven would be the same as the bunny rabbit's only it would be me surrounded by cookies... LOL

Betty said...

Do you mean you have to stay off the computer until you go back? Bummer, but I guess when you consider the other things that could have happened it's not too bad. Take it easy.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

I'm glad your comments aren't really off because I get to tell you I loved your post and also to say take care of yourself and have a great weekend! (Sorry about the draining, but it's sooo good to know you are going to be okay!!!)
Hugs,
Cheryl

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

Munir said...

Have restful two weeks. We will be waiting right here for you.
My daughter and my husband are sending their regards to you. I read your blogs to them a lot of times and they have fun laughing and enjoying.
Good luck with the drains. Remember we love you.

betty said...

Oh Sandie, sorry to hear about the problems with draining; hope you don't have to get the drains back in.

Too cute with all the laughs; loved the cell phones running to grandma too :)

take care of yourself!

betty

TARYTERRE said...

Love the nun joke. LOL And I've bought the shoes, probably more than I should. Health issues are always taxing. Humor helps to get you through. hang in there.

Ann said...

The running of the bulls and the nuns buying beer cracked me up
Sorry about the drains but at least like you said not a big deal in the grand scheme. Take care of yourself and we'll be here when you get back

Katie Clooney said...

Another great post! Love the joke about the nuns. So cute. I sent it to a nun friend of mine. The dog in the mud reminds me of my new puppy. Have a wonderful weekend, sweet Sandie.

Granny Annie said...

Wow you are really in the swing of things again. These are all great! Thank you Sandie!

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

I'm snap crackling and popping here...getting older does give you a totally different slant on things. Hope all goes well for you. Take good care !

Lucy said...

I would think the drains would be quite small a problem compared to what you have been through. The dog in the mud was cute---glad I don't have to clean him Drains, ok but hope you feel well to. Mu computer is on its last legs so if you don't hear from me for a while one day, I will hope to be back.

The Boston Lady said...

Sorry about the drains-thing. I know they are a pain, but necessary sometimes. Love the running of the bulls and the nuns. Laughter IS the best medicine. Big Hug! Ann TBL

Jemma@athomewithjemma said...

Dearest Sandi,
Fun times at your place as always!
This dog in the mud-cracks me up!

You slow down!! You do way too much-put your feet up, drink some lemonade, watch some good movies (old ones of course) and chill girl!
Love,
Jemma

Inger said...

All the best to you. And I loved the running of the bulls.

Jim said...

Sorry you are off writing. Perhaps reading is still okay?

I loved the Nun Joke, so did Mrs. Jim. I won't tell it to my S.S. class because they don't all agree on this kind of jokes being funny. Others drink beer and/or wine (we don't talk about that, we are Baptists) and might not like it either.

Disco hides from his bath, so does Katrin.

Debbie said...

Loved this (until I got to the part at the end about the draining. ) I am at my mom's until she recovers from surgery, and I just shared this post with her. It's nice to laugh with you again. I hope you will be back and DRAIN problems solved in short order.

(And I LOVED the quote about the storm and the squall. Amen dear sister.)

Beth of "E." Lizard Breath Speaks said...

hey, you ... i am catching up. miss ya. big big hugs. thanks, for the laughs. ( :

Lee said...

We look forward to seeing you in a couple of weeks time, Sandie. Thanks for the smiles today...there are some very good ones amongst this lot...all of them, actually!

Take good care. :)

Starry Dawn said...

Good Morning, Sandie!
My sweet dear friend, well,
I do not know whether you will read this comment or not, but I am concerned about your health.
You should take plenty of rest.
I assume you are taking antibiotics to prevent getting infections.
If you overwork your body after your important surgery, it is likely that your breasts won't heal as quickly as you expect them to be. I may see your breasts are dripping fluids with some blood, so this is the main reason why you may need to get your drainage back on, if that is the case your breasts continue to drip fluids. To get your breasts drained or checked once a week by doctors is unthinkable for me. You should be checked every day after your surgery. At least, it is my point of view what I should do. Take it easy! Do not do heavy housework! You should take plenty of rest, take your antibiotics to prevent infections, until you are fully healed. About today good laughters, I like the one with the Catholic Shampoo, the flying cat, the two Nuns buying beers, and the Nurses using rectal thermometers.
I pray for your complete healings and prompt recovery, my friend.
God be with you at all times.
Blessings & Prayers on your way.
Hope, Peace & Love,
Starry.

Lynn said...

Hope you are doing OK. I know there is some misery involved there.

Poor Disco - moving is hard on pets. :)

Buttons said...

Oh you always make me laugh love the top pic it is stunning.
I do hope you get the drain thing figured out. Thinking of you. Hug B

nancygrayce said...

I'm so sorry about the drains and hope you don't have to have them back in!

If Disco uses steps, he has my admiration! My dogs wouldn't even consider them and I tried!

Loved all the funnies and after all, laughter really is the best medicine.....that and pain meds!

Catherine said...

All enjoyable and uplifting. You are a blessing. Catherine xo

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

I fell off my chair on the Nun joke. I use the same curlers too. :)
I can relate to so many of these..guess I'm not getting that old yet. Neither are you..that's for sure. Loved every single one.

Renae of Simple Sequins said...

thanks for the support and wish for August to be gone. When I first did chemo I didn't realize it would affect me for those additional 21 days. I just thought they were spacers. But, nope. They are there for the chemo to do it's thang!! But my nurse did say that by about day 17-18 the symptoms are all gone. Awh, I cannot wait. I can't!! It is like Christmas!!!!
