For 2018

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

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


SPIDER . . . YOU'LL SWEAR IT'S ALIVE (Are you afraid of spiders?)

Poke and prod the spider with your mouse, also 'grab' one of its legs with your mouse and drag it around the screen -- tell me it's not alive! You can watch him follow your pointer, too.

Also double tap the MOUSE and it leaves little bugs for the spider to eat. Watch the spider go after the bugs and eat them. Outstanding animation!

Pictures today are from Jerry.

A good friend of mine served his time with the Marine Corps, then decided to become a school teacher, to help educate our children and deliver strong moral values in the process.

Before school started he unfortunately injured his back.

He was required to wear a plaster cast around the upper part of his body.

Fortunately, the cast fit under his shirt and wasn't even noticeable.

On the first day of class, he found himself assigned to the toughest students in the school.

Walking confidently into the rowdy classroom, he opened the window wide and sat down at his desk to start his lecture.

When a strong breeze made his tie flap, he took a stapler and stapled the tie to his chest.

He had no trouble with discipline that year...

If you obey all the rules you miss all the fun.
- Katherine Hepburn
Go out and have some fun today.

Sandra said...

love the puppy photos, since i love all things dogs, hate all things spiders so did not look at that

Ginny said...

Good fun here today! I love the senior song titles. And Ella and I spent a good part of the morning playing with the spider, she loved to watch him eat! She still has me find your mid-December post so she can make the reindeer sing!

Susan said...

Hi Sandie....Fun, huh? Well, I haven't had too much fun today but just read your post and decided I'd better do at least ONE thing to have fun today. Just finished ironing. Now that's not fun! But I'll think of something. Thanks and have some fun yourself! Okay? Susan

Joyce said...

Had to laugh about the tie being stapled to his chest. Just arrived in town this afternoon and what a complete mess it is..glad we missed the past few days. Made a stop to my Publix and there was NO meat, little cheese and they were just putting out fresh bread. It looked totally unreal. Praying your knee is doing better and whatever you do don't attempt to go out in this mess.

Debbie said...

I needed a giggle break so I stopped what I was doing and came here.

Sure enough... giggling.

I Get By with a little help from Depends??? Too funny!!

I also like I am Woman; hear me snore. LOL

Home In The Hollow said...

I love the song titles on the boomers! I'm one you know...heaven help us!!! I didn't do the spider thing...I don't like them!

Sharon Kirby said...

What a fun post!

The spider was UNCANNILY real - creepy!

Loved the puppy pics!

My favorite song - I Get By With a Little Help from Depends!! LOL

Here are some of mine:

The Temptations - Papa Has A Kidney Stone (and it ain't rolling...)

Rolling Stones - Start Me Up (please - the Scooter chair's running low on batteries)

The Beatles - All You Need is Love (and a little Viagra)

The Bee Gees - Stayin' Alive (literally)

The Doors - Hello I Love You (though I can't remember your name)

Hoping you're keeping your chin up with PT - at least that's something you can keep up without surgery!!


The Boston Lady said...

Oh that was lots of fun, but I am so afraid of spiders! Loved your quotes and best wishes with your PT. Ann

Those song remakes were a hoot girl! Sadly...they make perfect sense for the boomers we are today!

Angela said...

Hey Sandie!

The song remakes were funny!


Stella said...

Thanks for todays chuckle. Hope you knee is on the mend and you are doing better.

FishHawk said...

Very well done!

BECKY said...

Hi Sandie! Love the doggie photos! I couldn't go and look at the spider, though! Ick! Love all the funny song titles, too! Sorry I haven't stopped by in so long. How've you been?

Pat MacKenzie said...

That spider was creepy! Not my favorite animal. However, the song remakes made me laugh out loud. Isn't it great to be a boomer! Our lives can be told in song. I especially liked "once, twice, three times to the bathroom".

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

I love all the song revisions... they are right on time! LOL!

Together We Save said...

Great post!!

Granny Annie said...

Love those revised 60's lyrics!
