For 2018

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

The reason I say with a little help from my friends is because they send me some funnies and other information I use and I want to try to give them credit. I appreciate them so much.

Where would be be without laughter?

“At the height of laughter, the universe is flung into a kaleidoscope of new possibilities.”
—Jean Houston author

Do you know where these two are going?

To Wal Mart of course!

If you can figure this out - let me know how they did it. I can't figure it out. How did they do it?
(Thank you Cheri)

With time, women gain weight because we accumulate so much information and wisdom in our heads that when there is no more room, it distributes out to the rest of our bodies. So we aren't heavy, we are enormously cultured, educated and happy. Beginning today, when I look at my butt in the mirror I will think, “Good grief, look how smart I am!”
(Maybe that' s where smart a-- comes from?)

(Thanks Cheri).

For all of us who love sharks........sick things aren't they.....

Why Sharks Circle You Before Attacking

Two great white sharks swimming in the ocean spied survivors of a sunken ship.

"Follow me son" the father shark said to the son shark and they swam to the mass of people.

"First we swim around them a few times with just the tip of our fins showing." And they did.

"Well done, son! Now we swim around them a few times with all of our fins showing." And they did.

"Now we eat everybody." And they did.

When they were both gorged, the son asked, "Dad, why didn't we just eat them all at first? Why did we swim around and around them?"

His wise father replied, "Because they taste better without the (censored) inside!"

UCLA STUDY (very interesting and short)

A study worth sharing with friends both male and female:

A study conducted by UCLA's Department of Psychiatry has revealed that the kind of face a woman finds attractive on a man can differ depending on where she is in her menstrual cycle. For example: if she is ovulating, she is attracted to men with rugged and masculine features. However, if she is menstruating or menopausal, she tends to be more attracted to a man with duct tape over his mouth and a spear lodged in his chest while he is on fire.

No further studies are expected. (Thank you Linda)


Happy Birthday to Tuesday Weld -

Weld was born Susan Ker Weld in New York City. Her father, Lathrop Motley Weld, was a member of the Weld family of Massachusetts; he died in 1947, shortly before her fourth birthday. Her mother was Weld's fourth and final wife, the former Yosene Balfour Ker, the daughter of the artist and Life illustrator William Balfour Ker. She was one of three full siblings, the other two being Sarah King Weld (born 1935) and David Balfour Weld (born 1937).

She also had two half-siblings by her father's first marriage to Dorothy Livermore Wells: Lathrop Motley Weld Jr. (born 1922) and Thomas Livermore Weld (1926–1999). Her paternal grandfather, Edward Motley Weld, was a noted sportsman and former president of the New York Cotton Exchange. Her maternal great-grandmother, Lily Florence (Bell) Ker, was a first cousin of Alexander Graham Bell.

Through her father, she is a third cousin of William Weld, the former Governor of Massachusetts and is more distantly related to former U.S. presidential candidate John Kerry, U.S. vice president Henry A. Wallace, actress Dina Merrill, British aristocrat Viscountess Linley, composer Charles Ives, actor Clint Eastwood, actor Anthony Perkins, and Charles J. Guiteau, who assassinated President James A. Garfield.

Left in financial difficulty by her husband's death, Weld's mother put her to work as a child model to support the family. As the young actress told Life in 1971:

“ My father’s family came from Tuxedo Park, and they offered to take us kids and pay for our education, on the condition that Mama never see us again. Mama was an orphan who had come here from London, but so far as my father’s family was concerned, she was strictly from the gutter. I have to give Mama credit — she refused to give us up... So I became the supporter of the family, and I had to take my father’s place in many, many ways. I was expected to make up for everything that had ever gone wrong in Mama’s life. She became obsessed with me, pouring out her pent-up love — her alleged love — on me, and it’s been heavy on my shoulders ever since. To this day, Mama thinks I owe everything to her.

Country Wings in Phoenix said...

If it's Friday I get a good laugh!! Love the couple going to WalMart!! I knew my butt was big for some reason! Happy Friday Sandie!!

Together We Save said...

Thanks for the laugh... sharks, who knew!!

Susan said...

ha ha ha ha ha Funny post, Sandie. The photo of the people going to WalMart was a scream. Great job! Susan

Maria@BubblegumandDuctTape said...

very funny, now I know why I gained those extra pounds.

The guy at the airport was intersting. How did they do that??? my only guess is that he is handicapped and probably missing the lower part of his body. I'm thinking that the legs are really made out of steel or something and supports the rest of his body. Maybe with a built in back rest that's covered by his shirt? who knows, but very interesting.

Angela said...

Hey Sandie!

Those are some really good funnies this Friday! Loved the shark one.

Have a Great Weekend!

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

LOL! I sure must be smart, too!!! LOL! I am still laughing over the smarta**!!

Linda O'Connell said...

My husabnd thinks the guy is seated on a platform that supoorts his weight, but I think he is robotics as we have these life like 'people' in a musuem under the Gateway Arch in St. Louis. Either way, it sure gets your attention! Thanks for the shark laugh.

Jane said...

Mevely317 said...

Did you know I really needed a laugh right about now? ... My poopy day just became lots nicer --plus I've got this "trick" video to obsess over vs. the workplace ... That's what friends are for, indeed!

That corgi :) said...

LOL on the shark joke!! love the couple on the tractor too, can you imagine being seen out in public like that?

hope you have a great weekend Sandie!


FishHawk said...

No, I cannot recall ever seeing a John Deere trike in the parking lot of a Wal-Mart, and that would be something hard to forget. I do, however, believe that I have seen that couple on it several times in a number of places.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Thanks for the laughs! I'm pretty sure I've seen that couple at Walmart (but not on the tractor/bike)...

I was actually able to tell that shark joke to Bill. (I can't tell jokes for anything)! Maybe I'll even remember it.

Live Out Loud said...


Great shark joke.

The UCLA study is not funny - it's true!
